    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    It is pointless to have give up some of Sprints b25/26. I think for T-Mobile they don’t care because Sprints 2.5 is a MAJOR part of their 5G future. With what they(T-Mobile) has now, it’s going to take them only so far in the 5G world. Sprint on the other hand had limitless possibilities with their 2.5 and could eclipse T-Mobile in 5G and that’s something T-Mobile can’t have happen. Sprint is not allowed to come back from the dead lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Shady boots but Saw just needs to make sure that Sprints 5G is that bitch. The network is already not taken serious by its peers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    The more this merger drags on the more I feel a way about it. Yes all mergers lead to some kind of job loss. But I feel like both Sprint and T-mobile will keep all or most jobs but then lay off a crap ton after the network settles. Outside of that with all the new submitted docs it seems like every other week, makes me think that both companies don't know their sole reason is for them to merge. It was 5G and now is to keep up with Verizon and AT&T. The way things look now from a pricing perspective, the difference between them are a few dollars. Sprint still has a pricing edge in some ways.

    Well for that to happen, Sprint needs some money for expansion AND to ease up on all these roaming agreements..especially the one with T-Mobile since their bigger network is poo. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Probably yes after the merger goes through. T-mobile will make it happen I guess.
  6. I saw this a month ago and posted it on reddit and was told by many on there and downvotes that I was on the business website. Go figure others are seeing it now. If Sprint really brings contracts back, would it really help them at this point with customer retention?

    If this merger goes through will T-Mobile inherent Tidal as well since Sprint has some ownership in it? I think it’s something T-Mobile can really market and make it work.
  8. T-Mobile releases an article about them being the fastest 5 years in a row via Ookla. However, it was definitely great to see that Sprint is keeping up on the download side. https://www.t-mobile.com/news/fastest-lte-19-quarters
  9. Masa really just bought something here in the US just to say he bought it. He should’ve just bought he’s large stage in T-Mobile from the beginning. Because of what what little he did with/for Sprint, he should’nt have been allows to buy it. It was a waste of everyone’s time.
  10. I wish the iPhone X was on this list.
  11. Hmm. Gotta say what you must to get this merger to pass. I was pretty shocked with how similar the results of TMo and S are. Worse case if they are denied the merger (highly doubt), Sprint just needs to focus on their current footprint (which they started to do now) and get that together and then expand. They could shine in the 5G world IF they played their cards right.

    iPhone XS Thread

    Im thinking about up grading my X to the XS via the sprint promotion. With all the news of the Rf issues with the Max and XS is it really worth it? I would hate to get the XS and my reception is not as good as what I have the X.

    Network Vision/LTE - Columbus Market

    I hope that some of those sites affected are near the intersection of College(southeast expressway) and Petzinger Rd. I haven’t been premier section in a while.

    Network Vision/LTE - Columbus Market

    It’s definitely not. From the places I go in Columbus, everything is fine overall. A magic box could help but I don’t think you’ll get it within 14 days. I have a magic for my apartment and it helps. I get around 5down and 1up without it and with it I push about 20down and 5up. Not ultra fast but it’s enough for me.

    I’m on the south east side as well and i’ve never been a fan of Sprints service whenever I go out to Canal.

    iPhone XS Thread

    For those with the XS/Max, have you noticed a difference in service or speeds?

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Growth in your market is starting it outpace their resources in spectrum. I would like to think that at the rate them gaining customers the increase in capex would also be lateral.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    So if I’m reading this chart correctly, from a 5G front Sprint would/bring speeds that will be competitive with the big two. T-Mobile would be absolutely the slowest (sprint of the 5G world). So this is T-Mobile saying “we need Sprint so that we can keep claiming we are the fastest.” Sprint will be the smallest carrier in coverage but will be able to handle their own in the speed dept and could become a threat.
  20. I kinda take Sprint Care with a grain of salt after my last few interactions with them. Based on the VoLTE map soft launch I saw on here, that's more than a few markets its being launched in.
