  1. Yes, some of you disagree with me. That's to be expected. Sprint sucks in some places. But Sprint is not only great in my area, but they're actually the best. And in most metro areas, they are perfectly usable. But guess what? T-mobile sucks in many places. And I can tell you here in their home market, they're the worst carrier. Verizon also stinks in places too. I suppose if I lived in a crappy Sprint market, I'd go. But I can tell you I see more and more people who leave Sprint and either come back or even if they don't, admit that the network wasn't as bad as they thought and there was a complete over dramatization in the disparity in networks. Everybody's gotta do what's best for themselves. And if leaving Sprint is best for you, I certainly wouldn't hold it against anyone. I've seen many go over the years. And I still sit here plugging away behind the keyboard. But the one thing that won't continue is the overly negative drumbeat that's happening in this thread. You all are starting to build off each other's negativity, causing the conversation to become one sided and pointless. Don't want to hear ad infinitum the same droll negative grumblings. Especially the same 'ol criticisms and Sprint can't be trusted. Frankly, the drama is not true. Sprint took longer, yes, but it did upgrade its network, and the performance is better. And on the whole, it's better than its ever been. So it cannot be said Sprint didn't do it. They did. So let's stick to the thread discussion, which is the merger. Not on the network performance on Lower Botswana Avenue and your thoughts on changing networks because of your block. Robert
  2. If there is no merger, it is not all gloom and doom. Sprint is a healthier company now than it has been in the past. It will really come down to how it would play the future competitive landscape and whether having too compete too low on price while building out an expensive new upgrade again ends up being too much in the long run. There is no imminence of doom. And there is no guarantee that the other will fare as well, either. If Sprint keeps improving its network and keeps prices low, it steadily drains money from their competitors too. Sprint does not have to be perfect to be a disruptor. And soon there would be no Legere at Tmo. Who knows how a post Legere Tmo works out in the long run? No need for dire predictions at this point! And as a Verizon and Tmo customer also, I can tell you it ain't all unicorns and fairy dust over on the other networks. People are expecting a huge difference, and for the most part, they find a slight difference. We have seen a lot of people come back to Sprint in these forums the past 12-18 months, all saying the same thing. They expected their digital life to come alive leaving Sprint, and then they just find they get poorer month over month. Then come back and find the network is even better since they left. Robert

  7. All: I've been busy the past two days converting maps to BatchGeo. Which will we use to host our maps temporarily for a month or two while we work out a better long term solution. If you want me to recreate a map in one of your threads, send me the CSV file of the data and the the thread URL and I will create it in BatchGeo. I'd like to try to keep the site not looking like we were napalmed and burned up all the maps. I'm happy to create the maps for you. No matter how old the data. I like having historical data from years past, especially instead of broken links and missing maps. BatchGeo is limited to just 25,000 markers. So maps with more than than will need to be broken down into multiple maps. There is no extra charge for additional maps. We just pay a flat $99 per month fee. THANK YOU EVERYONE who have been helping with the maps. It is greatly appreciated. Robert
  8. Posted an update to the Top Donors list. Justen moves way up the list to #4. Brockeb1 has made it on to the list and jumps all the way in to #28! jlbattagli, Trip, and runagun also moved up quite a few spaces. Rawvega made it back on the list. And thank you for all your time on the list, but, lrosete777 and leerage were bumped off the bottom. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!! Robert
