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....

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!

    • TMobile has the capex, we will see if they can execute.  Sure they have spectrum now, but before Sprint they had LTE spectrum on par with VZW.  Half the customers and their data speeds were only on par. With VZW deploying CBRS, I expect them to take away a lot in Auction 105 of which this spectrum has been deployable since January. So Im not sure how much of a head start TMobile has even on the 2.5GHz deployment front. VZW is supposed to launch 5G in Q3 so we will see how much work they have been doing behind the scenes if any at all.  Hopefully it will be straight to SA, non of this NSA nonsense.  For me personally 5G has been about the SA. I want to be able to turn off LTE and really see 5G-only coverage/speed.  
    • Anyone get this app working on the new 13.5 jailbreak?  I installed it because I figured what the hell, might as well try.  Installs and shows the LTE band and GCI, but no RSRP or SNR info displays.
    • Yeah, it would be kinda nice if the FCC just went a head and repacked it so you can easily make 5 5MHz blocks in SMR.  Redo the band plan, revoke 5MHz and auction that off.  Then use those precedes to pay the former A and B license holders. Allow for smaller license holders with deployed spectrum to have discounted rates. Have exceptions for smaller outfits to seek additional funding if they need to completely replace equipment and/or utilize a different band, or even have priority access. It seems like it would be something the FCC would be interested in as they seek additional spectrum.
