Sprint Quarterly Earnings Announcement Scheduled

Recommended Posts

The older I get, the more I realize I don't know. When I was 18, I thought I knew everything.

Wait till you get really old -- Not only will you realize how much you don't know, but you will start forgetting the small amount that you actually do know, until you reach the point where .  .  . where .  .  . Drat, what was I saying???

Tmo moving to 3rd is a symptom of their growth. Not the cause of their growth. Otherwise being 4th would have been hopeless and they never would have had a chance to overcome.

 

This evokes a classic "Chappelle's Show" sketch.

 

"How can T-Mobile rise up and overcome?"

 

"Can T-Mobile???"

 

"That is correct."

I don't think many people care about "who has the most subscribers."

 

Sprint needs to keep improving the network and pointing out the big single-line price differential -- including versus T-Mobile's plans -- and they'll keep getting better. I want to see a LOT more ads touting the $50 Unlimited Everything iPhone plan... that always raises eyebrows when I mention the price (especially compared to what you get from the others for $50).

 

Ultimately, profitability is more important than selling lines below cost. A lot of those T-Mo gross adds are garbage lines pushed out at $10 per month on a family plan. ARPU at T-Mo has to be taking a big hit, and I cannot imagine their present course is sustainable. Their network is slowing majorly in NYC and other big markets with all these new adds, and with Legere signaling that he doesn't have the cash nor willingness to raise cash to buy new spectrum, I have to believe they're going to hit a wall sooner or later.

 

Already, some previously-committed T-Mo customers I hang out with ask me how I can make calls in venues where they have no signal. That 800 MHz EVDO may not be a speed demon, but it works with rock solidity in places where T-Mo has no signal at all (or only a bar of 2G voice). Add in the fact that it's $50 a month, and they start to say "hmmmm."

Evdo isn't being deployed on 800, just LTE and 1x.

Pretty sure he just meant 1x, for voice calls.
