  1. Honestly they have all the tools to really bring it with 5G hell even with 4G(we all know what happened there). They just lack scale which is going to possibly be a problem for 5G and density. If Sprint can get to together, I have no problem coming back for their 5G network cause I know they can outdo the competition and not have a crap ton of small cells on every other block cause of MmWave.

    That’ll be awesome. Then at that point, they’ll need to compete on price or the things that come included with your plan outside of talk, text and data. Also why is it that T-Mobile is the only carrier who hasn’t announced their initial 5G markets? They said they’ll have 30 in first half of 2019 but there’s no list provided. It’s just kinda odd only because they’re always vocal about things.

    I thought in the starter 5G cities they were deploying 5G ready equipment?

    Yea that’s a mess. As they keep adding so will T-Mobile.

    I can probably agree with that. Sprint needs work in many cities. Which is what they are doing now but as a fallback in the case the merger falls through but to for better prep for 5G. This is really their chance to shine.

    That MMWAve is going to require them to place small cells pretty close together just like what Verizon is doing. Sprint on the other hand honestly just needs a good cell grind along with their small cells. Their 2.5 travels far enough. From a network perspective in my eyes, Sprint would have the cleaner looking network within cities and not all these small cells every direction you turn.

    I think it will be I haven’t heard that it wasn’t going to be. Now my question is, will Sprint be able to tell is someone is abusing the roaming especially if T-Mobile is offering a better data experience and that use forces their phone to stay on roaming? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    With this roaming agreement, If I lose LTE I’ll pick just pick up a Tmo LTE signal instead of dropping to Sprint 3G?
  11. Layer 3 or I wouldn’t be mad at them allowing you to select a music streaming service (from approved list) and they either pay it or pay half of it per month after you link it to your TMO account.

    Looks like T-Mobile is full steam ahead with their own network plans for 5G in the event the merger is not approved. https://www.t-mobile.com/news/nokia-5g-agreement

    Yea especially with T-Mobiles network deployment track record. Yes one can say they had help from the failed attempt with AT&T but they have yet to slow down on expanding their network and their customer numbers show each quarter. Yes the network is not the best in every city but from the majority of them, it’s on par with the top 2. The growth of the network and customers over 4 years had been nothing short of amazing. That’s one thing no one can deny.
  14. On Reddit this guy who has Sprint said that T-Mobile is confusing when it comes to pricing. I had to laugh at his comment cause I’m trying to figure out what Sprint company he had. I think Sprint is the most confusing. Theses new plans make great examples of that.

    I had that one too. The flashlight was was kinda on the top side of the phone. Then I got their flip phone. Having Virgin Mobile was one of the most fun times with a cellular carrier.
