T-Mo's 2nd quarter results expected to be presented by July 30th....   I'm sure they are hoping to have some sort of answer by then... 

I'm thinking this is really taking a long time... they must be hung up on 1 or 2 key points and neither is budging on it....

...cause it's taking too long.   Even the Justice Dept is bored with this!

This is amazing.

In an homage to the warrior-poets Warren G, Nate Dogg; I'm so thoroughly pleased by the regulators for once, they appear to have mounted up successfully.

Finally something is happening. What do we think will happen given they have to comply with current concessions or go to court. 

Court if they are playing to win.

Back on topic...

I glad the DOJ issued that warning to the merging parties.    If they didn't put a deadline on this, I think it would drag on for another 2 months.     Make the move or don't.

I hope they go court personally. It will help clarify the limits of DOJ's powers to force a settlement and whether they have standing to sue under the antitrust laws in this instance. I am totally against spectrum concessions and I am also against any concessions that can come back to hurt T-Mobile.

Fair enough

To be honest I wasn’t expecting anything so that’s all there is to it

This imo is more of a sign that the merger announcement is imminent than anything else

How big is the marketing department? It is less than 5% of that number.  Say it's 200 people, less than 10 people got laid off/fired.  Yeah...

So the big hold up is the MVNO agreement that Dish/Boost will get from T-Mobile. Since the terms will be rather beneficial, they don't  want somebody else to acquire Dish/Boost (cable Cos) and inherit the same terms. I have to say that the term of 3 years for the MVNO agreement is rather short.

Sounds like T-Mo/Sprint will host Dish's spectrum for a good number of years... this is a good thing for us as I think it will help with coverage and depth as I believe we will get to use it too?  (Sprint/T-Mob) customers?

If they had to give up spectrum to Dish then they gave up too much and I would have let the DOJ sue. On the other hand, exchanging 800MHz SMR spectrum for 600Mhz spectrum down the line might be OK.

I just want this all to be completed one way or another... I don't care anymore.  Just want all the uncertainty done with.   Time for Sprint and T Mobile to get back to business with or without each other...    Time to get it done!

    • Darn that stinks. I just got mine setup using the LTE backhaul and i'm getting pretty decent service.  Still can't use it to make a call no VOLTE however it is nice to be able to use the LTE for my phones and spare the WIFI for other devices.  
    • After seeing this comment, I tried a couple of things and viola, it works. Unfortunately I still wasn't successful connecting to the network. It was a bit tricky with the pi because it has a hard time initializing the modem after a reboot if I don't cycle the power on the modem too, of course that's resetting the IMEI. Working quickly I was able to get it all synced up, but still kept getting the Call failed/Out of Call errors in the logs. If it would have worked I would have worked harder to figure out a way to pass the AT command prior to bringing up the network. I did verify the IMEI with AT commands and uqmi as well. I have all the connections I need, but I am unable to find the thicker 1.13mm coax pigtails. LTEfix doesn't seem to have them either   I ordered a ZBT WG3526 since it seems pretty well supported, and based on your comments I am going to get a beefier power supply for it as well. On a separate note: I figured out a couple of things about the Askey router, not that it matters much those little MHF4 looking connectors on the antenna traces look like test points. When you use the proper cable it acts like a switch and disables the antenna while taking measurements. MHF-SW23 Also there is a serial port nearby the sim slot that is marked Tx, Rx, Gnd on the flip side of the board. I was able to watch the board boot by hooking up an arduino like a jerry-rigged ttl cable, no shell though. I saved the output if anyone cares.
    • I know that, they would have to reconfigure band 5 to include SMR.
    • SMR doesn't cover B5, so those carriers would have to do B26 Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • I've come across a number of Crown Castle oDAS nodes (small cells) on T-Mobile. I think a bunch used to belong to MetroPCS. I found 3 in my own neighborhood and one in Williamsburg. The ones on my neighborhood all share the same the same eNB ID which makes it annoying to track on Cellmapper since it's 3 separate "sites" but only one marker.
