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

Might be able too. My friend walked into a sprint store yesterday and added 6th line to that plan

What do they mean by this?

Maybe for CA, use the 1900 for uplink, and 2500 for downlink.

I wonder if this would also help battery life on standby since 1900 should be a stronger signal.  Also, if this is the future plan they should start seeding devices with this type of carrier aggregation asap.  The new flagships from Samsung and HTC come out in the spring and they it would nice if they have the capability once the network is ready.

What do they mean by this?

 

It means that they might use 2.5MHz strictly for download link, thereby increasing its efficiency and use PCS for uplink.

What do you mean by 40% of this year?

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

That is how it sounds to me.

 

 

executive team will occasionally work in retail stores and call centers.

That's interesting.

500 stores less than T-Mobile, 3000 less than Verizon.

 Churn in Chicago:  Churn decreases nicely where network improves

 

 

1.9 with 2.5 question.  (Bye)  . Path will not be changed, will be complimented.  added 800 to mix.  No specific timeframe, working with device vendors.  Not a year off, more in the long term.

Any special offers for retention?  Trying move them to best rate plan.  Prodding customers, especially 3G,  to move to triband phones.  Network improvements.  Using "next best action" software. 

 

Conference call concluded.

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

Things are moving full steam ahead now that the foundation is complete. Sprint should hit 300 mil pop way before the year ends.

Band 41 is below 2-4 Mbps in Baltimore nowadays...so hopefully having 2.5Ghz downlink with 1.9Ghz for uplink will help with download speeds.

Did nobody ask them about the sale of some 2.5GHz (EBS)? Or horse trading it for PCS?

Or they could add a second carrier card. Like they did with superbowl.

Or buy the h block

H block is kind of weird it's not PCS, power characteristics are those of AWS if I remember. Trading for PCS with either AT&T or Verizon or even T-Mobile might be preferable.

H is right next to g which is b25. 5mhZ is not that much.

Why would att vzw trade spectrum for which they have the handsets and network TODAY for spectrum for which they have neither?

They noted that is a long term plan, not this year.

 

2.5GHz capacity issues can be solved by increasing density and adding another carrier, which is slated for this year.

    • Yes - I forgot to mention it has a bulk uploading feature, as well. You can specify whether to replace/update already existing sites or leave them as is (this is because site IDs are unique - they're set up as indexes in the MySQL table). When uploading you can also specify field delimiter, record delimiter, column enclosure and escape characters.  You can download data in TSV format (tab-delimited). You can also download a SQL script that will input the data into any other SQL database. 
    • Any chance you could add a bulk upload and bulk download feature?  The bulk upload should give the option to append data or to replace the data.  The bulk download should download the data in CSV format. The easiest way to get data out of fusion tables is by downloading the fusion table to a comma separated value (CSV) text file.  CSV files can be opened and edited in any common spreadsheet applications to put the data in the format you request.  I would hate to make someone type in many 10's of thousands of sites one at a time.
    • I've went ahead and yesterday built a rough draft of the application I was talking about. It allows you to edit rows (single site records) with a GUI that then updates a map. You can also use SQL to edit records. The program additionally allows you to manage several maps in one place. Using it feels very similar to using fusiontables. I've PMed a link to @S4GRU and am awaiting feedback.  I would share a demo here, but the map I'm using for testing has information for ~1000 Sprint sites which I don't think I can post outside the sponsor forum.
