    I have been an auditor on several engagements where the auditee was in a M&A takeover or purchase and did not do a call. They only provided guidance. In my experience, it is not uncommon but those were low fortune 1000 companies, not a top 200 company. I think you may be reading into the move a little too much.

    I can definitely confirm expansion in the DC area, also Baltimore to Delaware, starting to see 5G on 95 on my weekend runs to Newark.

    T-Mobile Shares Fell on Report That CEO Is in Talks to Join WeWork I'm hoping John stays ... bringing Sprint and T Mobile together requires his expertise.

    Bought a week pass when at the Munich airport coming in for the trip I'm now returning from. Vodafone in the MUC airport, with a mix of B20, B3, and B7. The former two were 20/10 or so speeds, the latter Around 60/30. Coverage was rather spotty at the Sofia airport, but once I got landside, coverage in and near Sofia was solid, using A1's B3 network. A1, the largest carrier in the country (by a small margin), is apparently trial'ing 3500 MHz 5G-NR, and their network was quite strong at the conference center (National Palace of Culture) and nearby, with speeds reaching 129/27 and about 160ms latency. Carrier aggregation is being used. Travelled to Plovdiv, where speeds were 30-40 down, 10-20 up. On the way there, and on the way between there and somewhere else we went for a wine tasting, things would sometimes drop to HSPA, at which point no data would pass. But I had LTE most.of the time. I definitely did too many speedtests though...at 4 and change GB I got throttled to 2 Mbps in each direction in Bulgaria, and maybe 1 Mbps in Germany. I'll definitely only buy day passes the next time I head out of the country, but even throttling data was still reasonable.

    That's why Dish would have been a better take over.. Wish USCC could have afforded to buy Sprint and take themselves Nationwide Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk

    So, as a final closeout to this topic - I did call Sprint back for one final try on getting CDMA to work. The tech I talked to solved the problem in about 5 minutes. Turns out that Sprint had never activated the device. She proceeded to do so, And within about a 1/2 hour, all the lights were green, and I validated I could make a call off the Airave. One would think that the unit would come pre-activated. One would think that the setup instructions would include calling Sprint to activate the device. One would think that sometime in my previous calls to Sprint, somebody would have noticed that the device was not activated. Amazing!

    Wireless and wired backhaul is available in markets where Sprint core network team has done the physical and software upgrades needed. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    https://www.cnbc.com/2019/10/26/softbank-taking-masayoshi-sons-sprint-playbook-to-wework.html Well this should work out well... I’m so disappointed in Marcelo as a CEO. I gave him the benefit of the doubt for a long time, but when I look back on his Sprint tenure and the things he failed to prioritize/accomplish, it just feels like he phoned it in... Maybe my blame is misplaced. Perhaps It goes all the way up to Masa, and Marcelo wasn’t about to submarine his future at SoftBank to cross him.

    New update is available with Oct security update. It also mentions a lot of other changes. I don't think it has the fingerprint scanner fix though.

    That's where my mom lives! I was just there like two weeks ago. T-Mobile was good for the most part. I saw a couple of sites with 600MHz panels up.

    Pretty sure the idea is to preserve maximum bandwidth for the New Radio launch.

    Not a good quarter economically. The patient was already in a poor state. I agree with you RedSpark and CEO Michael Combes (Sprint) ... Hurry up Merger!! From CNet: Overall, Sprint's total subscriber count continued to fall with a total loss of 396,000. The decline dropped the company's overall count from roughly 54.31 million wireless users last quarter to approximately 53.92 million today. "I am proud of the resiliency of the Sprint team as they work to deliver results in a challenging environment," said Sprint CEO Michel Combes in a statement accompanying the results. "However, I remain convinced that merging with T-Mobile and building one of the world's most advanced 5G networks is the best outcome for all consumers, employees, and shareholders." This is really going to sting the financially drained pocket book: In a "message from management," Combes also said that Sprint, which was recently accused of defrauding the FCC about its Lifeline program, is "committed to reimbursing federal and state governments for any subsidy payments that were collected incorrectly."

    I'm in a high-rise on 7th floor of a 40 story tower. There's another tower across the street though and I think I sometimes can pick up my MB from the sidewalk.

    It shows a downgrade option as soon as you load it up on PC. Make sure it's up to date.

    That's why SoftBank was another one of Sprints bad choices. Dish wanted time at the same time and that would have been a very choice. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk

    We're a month and a half away from the start of the trial. My guess is a few more states drop out as we get closer to December 9. I really hope Texas pushes for more rural coverage from T-Mobile and that Dish covers urban areas + interstate highways. There are so many back roads that are crucial to O&G where only At&t has coverage. It's time they get some competition.

    Can't find a spec sheet. AirUnity 5G https://www.airspan.com/portfolio-items/airspan-networks-5g-airunity-powered-by-qualcomm-technology/ Display is huge on it. When can we expect this?

    That's nice to hear. How about ethernet backhaul and Volte? Regardless, its good to see progress on this.

    Sprint needs to spend more on backhaul and less on kombucha: https://www.kansascity.com/news/business/article235439977.html (See the Video) Yes the employees need morale boosters right now to prevent a talent drain. For what it’s worth from me, the best morale booster is a better product, not kombucha.

    If there is an EBS license in Grand Forks, say by UND for instance, Sprint could possibly lease it. That could make a pathway for B41 there. Robert

    Does anybody have any idea at all why Sprint would not activate VOLTE on the Samsung S9? Seems really strange how the S8 and s10 have VOLTE and the s9 does not. Is there some valid reason why? Is there a hardware issue with the s9? Just the normal fumbling and bungling? Looks really strange and it sure does not make Sprint or Samsung look good. This type of thing is why many people leave Sprint.

    The s9 is good at receiving Band 41, but not transmitting to the cell site. My question is --- why don't they fix this? Kick the s9 off band 41 when it struggles to upload to band 41 and can't do it. Or better yet, get band 25 upload going with band 41 download. Do something. Just fix it and yesterday.

    OK, I have no idea what they'r talking about but supposedly Altice's 19,000 small cells in the Long Island area have not improved Sprin't's performance: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/altice-s-19-000-small-cells-long-island-don-t-help-sprint-s-network-much-say-analysts
