Sprint Q4 2014 earnings report

Recommended Posts

Date: Feb 5th, 2015.
Time: 1:30PM Eastern Time

I am interested in seeing how well the Cut Your Bill in Half promotion did. Also, I want to see how many pops they have covered in LTE (supposedly T-Mobile has 5million more. But I doubt it.)

It's said they earned close to 1 million customers, 400K being prepaid and the rest are tablets or other small profit devices.  I think 30K postpaid adds was the number.

 

I'm more interested in their update on the network goals and such for this year.  Haven't heard much about the specifics.

Didn't they give us some of the details from the quarter a few weeks ago? Maybe I'm just confused because I haven't had any caffeine today.

They put out unofficial subscriber numbers just after new years because Marcelo did a Q&A at a financial conference.  Tomorrow we'll get the official ones along with financial results.

Yeah, that's my point. The info will not deviate much from what was already released. Like subscriber numbers. Anything not released is what's open to speculation.

I was thinking this morning that are we not close to it, but couldn't remember the date. Actually thought it was next week. But as usual time flies by, so yeah it does seem that it wasn't too long ago.

no caffeine!!!! Sacrilege

 

As for the numbers, like Mario said, they made a small mention of some numbers early in  late Dec/earlyJan, but the numbers should be better. A quarterly report is usually done 2-3 weeks before distribution, so I would guess that the Jan mention would not include about a months worth of new data.

Some of Sprint's notes are at a high interest rate of 14.75% from Clearwire

Sprint now covers 270 Million POPs with LTE, and 125 Million on 2.5Ghz.  Not bad.

I knew they wouldn't let T-Mobile hold that spot for long.

they just hit 100mil a month ago so this progress is excellent.

Is that 270 sprint native or is some the shentel, RRPR

I'm guessing native. If there was RRPP coverage on LTE, Sprint would make a huge deal of that.

What do you mean by 40% of this year?

Do you mean the 40% of people left to cover will be accomplished this year

 FDD is fixed, that is evenly divided.  Except when doing video conferencing and the like, it is underutilized on the uplink side. TDD is downlink oriented.

If they'd let me add another line to my ED 1500, I'd really love Sprint even more. :P

    • Should be able to draw some good interest once we get these torn down and figured out. Expect lots of proprietary protocol so finding a comm port on the modem will be tricky if that is your thing. Getting an antenna design going is what I am excited for most. All I can do with the software is try to break it hard enough in the most blatant manner possible.  I have to be nice to this case though, I shredded a MR100 Nighthawk and a couple of magic boxes no problem, I'm trying to keep this thing at least a few more months, so I am excited to see what I can come up with. If you manage to teardown Sprint's premiere 5G home router and set up some externals that would be really neat to see.   Jim @LTEfix is great. We boomer chat on facebook and get confused by all the software, bitmaps and such. He really has a great domestic business going sourcing all this stuff. Thanks to his services I have an elaborate junkyard going and now 3 year Ever Improving LTE Internet Project. 
    • Doesn't look like it. It only supports Band 2, 4, 5, 12, 13, 17, 26, 41, 66, and LTE-U. It also doesn't have CDMA support. That said, U.S. variants of Samsung phones tend to have U on the end of their name while international variants tend to be F. This is the international variant.
    • Something interesting I discovered is it still shows voice roaming in most of these areas. 
    • I'm noticing some new giant dead spots along I-29 in ND now. Central MN as well. Also SE MN, central MI, southern OH, parts of KY, VA, NC, SC, GA. It's like they just went in and carved some areas out. Seems like they cut out along major interstates. Maybe a cost saving measure to remove roaming?
    • I just took a trip up Hwy 395 in Central CA between Mojave and Bishop and was roaming on Verizon in some areas.  This was for voice at least as I test called customer service and got the Verizon recording.  I also had data roaming in some places but not sure who's signal that was as it worked fine for internet browsing (Ebay, Yahoo and Facebook) but wouldn't allow me to send pictures or search google in my web browser.  I'm guessing the file size on the pictures I was trying to send were probably too large for what the roaming partner allows.  Also wherever Sprint had coverage LTE worked fine and the voice signal was on 800 Mhz according to debug mode.
