Official Tmobile-Sprint merger discussion thread


Recommended Posts

So when is the DOJ going to commit to announcing?  They put the deadline on T Mobile and Sprint last week that everything needs to be completed by the end of this week,.. now we are all waiting on them.

In addition, T Mobile has postponed their 2nd quarter earnings meeting with investors schedule for yesterday, then delayed until  today, now it's delayed until further notice.    Can this get any more unorthodox?

The DOJ should have countersued as soon as the state AGs sued,  basically telling them that this is our bailiwick and you have absolutely no leg to stand on (no legal standing to bring a suit).

T-Mobile is trying to control the PR, earnings were released today with a EPS of $1.09 which beat the estimated $0.97 T-Mobile still making moves.  One of the best quarterly results to date for $TMUS, the conference call will more than likely include the announcement of the Sprint/T-Mobile merger.  I suspect we will get some news before the open of the trading day tomorrow.

Let’s just see what happens. If something interesting happens I’ll cook a bag of popcorn in the microwave and have some popcorn and watch the feed blow up LOL

Charles Gasparino just said that the DoJ presser is back on for tomorrow (as of right now). But of course, things can change from tonight to tomorrow morning.

My guess is that the DoJ found a state AG (or two) to back down from the lawsuit. The merger has been nuts to follow after the FCC gave their blessing. If Delrahim pulls this off, then he deserves a ton of credit. He just created a 3rd true national carrier (one that can go toe to toe with Verizon/At&t), while ensuring that most Americans have access to 4 carriers in most cities. This is a good outcome for all of America.

So it’s pretty much a given that the merger is approved?

Does anyone have any idea what will happen with Sprint’s roaming agreements with U.S. Cellular with this merger? That roaming is the main reason we even have sprint because none of the other carriers have solid coverage at our weekend place except U.S. Cellular.

By allowing this merger, Masa and Marcelo are effectively getting a bailout from the market for their poor strategy and management of Sprint.

Even if there’s divestment to create a 4th Carrier, that Carrier will essentially be the new Sprint, and in similar competitive position.

Many (some of you) are all asking about pre-existing roaming agreements etc... I think those are all still in play...  I don't think any of that changes.... The New T Mobile said they would honor all existing roaming agreements and other contracts set up by either Sprint or T Mobile.       Besides, until this closes officially and they both become "New T Mobile", nothing changes yet....   

T Mobile's 2nd quarter conference call/ web presentation is at 1pm today.  I'm sure many many questions will be asked including much of this type of information.    I plan on joining the call to be able to hear all the details.

It's about freaking time! I can't wait for the details! Will they officially close the merger on Monday the 29th?

So we finally know if the merger is approved or not?

You will get the official word at 11am with some but not a lot of details. Just the broad outlines. Details to come at 1PM and probably on Monday if they close on Monday. But it looks like the merger is approved.

They still have to deal with the AGs lawsuit and California's Public Utilities Commission. They can't close on Monday.

Did the states get an injunction? DOJ was working with some of the states to head them off at the pass.

Is there a feed of the DOJ press conference? It was supposed to start at 11.

I'm trying to find one also...   No luck so far.

Pen & Pad briefing might mean that there will be no video and attendees will not be allowed to tweet or broadcast until briefing is over.

Or the briefing might be postponed?

    • Long live Wimax, Clearwire, Sprint Spark, Sprint LTE Advance, Sprint LTE Plus, Sprint!
    • Has your site been upgraded? Because B4/B66 performs worse on the new Nokia AAFIA Massive MIMO equipment in Texas. Before the upgrades, T-Mobile physically split sectors for B2/4/66 and coverage+performance was pretty impressive. B4/66 coverage was actually very close to that of B2 (even outperforming it in some instances). Now that my local tower has been upgraded, I still receive B12 and B2 from it. But my B4/66 now comes from a different neighboring tower as my home tower's B4/66 is drowned out. As you can imagine, I no longer get the same peak speeds as before since CA doesn't play nice with bands coming from different towers. Even the newly added B41 has a better reach than B4/66 (getting 80+ mbps downloads on B41+B41, T-Mobile just needs to optimize load balancing as B41 thresholds seem very conservative).
    • I don't have the "hearing me" problem, but I bet it's network related..... I just rarely get calls and texts when people call me or text me. Telemarketers seem to always get through but never the important calls. The New T-mobile sucks just as hard as the Old Sprint. 
    • At one point i was on B66 all the time at our house, but now i almost never see Band 66.  I haven't paid attention to the PLMNs,  i will have to check.  We haven't had the issue in a few days, hopefully they have fixed whatever the issue was.  
    • It's amazing how quickly T-Mobile is integrating Sprint's network assets after the merger and putting itself on real competitive footing with Verizon/AT&T. With the launch of the 5G iPhone, uptake of new 5G devices on T-Mobile's network must be substantial. T-Mobile's midband capacity from Sprint is making a real difference in usability and speed.
