  1. Rootmetrics 1H19 report has been released. http://rootmetrics.com/en-US/content/review-of-the-us-mobile-landscape-US-1H-2019 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Oh for sure. Sprint had all the makings to be a force. 5G is a prime example of that. As it currently stands, they have the most coverage. Son definitely had no plans to bring Sprint back from the dead. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. They did put that money to good use and it shows. Whatever they are doing to the network is keeping and adding customers. I just hate that Sprint couldn’t really get the slow and steady pace right. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Sprint is showing some good results. Granted, it’s not 1gbps but it’s exceeded Verizon in terms of coverage and reliability. Kudos to Sprint! This is the good press they needed. Playing up their strength of allowing the reviewers to walk around the city and still maintain speeds looks great on them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I hope pcmag bas great results in their testing. The upload...well... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’m not shocked at that. When news broke that they were planning to let go of boost I immediately thought, “boost could be player #4.” They already have millions of subs as is. Then it kills the argument of less choice. Downside is we’ll now have a smaller player at a “disadvantage” that Sprint and T-Mobile are complaining about currently. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Right in the event the merge is approved. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. That’s very true. Sprint just needs a stronger backing that sees the vision and its assets. I was also thinking that by them spinning off Boost they would become #4 since they will still be using Sprints network and have a few million subs within itself. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Well that changed fast. I wonder what else they could want when it comes to antitrust? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I doubt it but they’ll be certainly making a video after they purchase a device. Sprint already made claims that their 5G coverage is going to broader in cities than that of Verizon so that within itself will draw attention from CNET. I really really hope this goes good for Sprint. I think it’ll bring much needed good press about their 5G network. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. They’re painting a honest picture now to get that merger approved. They sound so boring over the phone. My God. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. That makes sense. It’s so sad because there’s beyond ALOT of potential with Sprint and the assets they have but there’s no one at the front of the company who is serious about letting Sprint excel. As long as there’s no one in charge who genuinely cares for Sprint the other carriers have nothing to worry about. Make no Mistake, they all know the damage Sprint can do.

  13. If Sprint does indeed files chapter 11, what happens at that point besides restructuring of their balance sheet? Will we still prices go up, etc? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I don’t see nor understand as to why the US needs to bet China is 5G. This wasn’t a issue when LTE launched. Verizon nor ATT are screaming this. Sounds like to me it’s more “we won’t be able to compete properly with Verizon or ATT alone in 5G. Sprint between the two could actually do it (given a steady stream of capex). T-Mobile I think will be at a disadvantage. I know they have their 600 but realistically, will it really make an impact in 5G (speed etc) besides distance? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I just want sprint to do this 5G thing right and not try to throw shots. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. As they should. I’m sure the other carriers will spend that amount if not more. But I’m Sprints case, is that just for 5G deployment or 5G and coverage expansion? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Oh for sure. It’s really Sprints time to shine. Sadly we might not get to see that if the merger goes through. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. I agree, they are in the best position when it comes to 5G. It’s really just getting that Massive MIMO up on towers and getting the backhaul together. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Yes the prices are kinda steep but best believe Verizon is going to have a very good 5G network. I truly Believe that if Sprint had a stronger network, they’d charge the same but they are in no position to do so. When you have a good product, people don’t really have a issue with paying for it. Prices are going up across the the board periodt with 5G. New plans will be introduced with a higher price. Let’s just hope, that we don’t need to Change plans for 5G access and they will keep offering an add on to current plans and it’s not an initial thing until its coverage is more widespread Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Boy Sprint is really better big and putting their faith in their 2.5 OR they rather T-Mobile bid on with the impression the merger is going to happen. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. I’m really impressed with the amount of coverage sprint is providing with their 5G. See this is the advantage Sprint has when it comes to 5G. Their spectrum is 5G ready and all the need to do is get Massive MIMO on these towers and backhaul. This could be really big for Sprint if the results from users are positive. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. How ironic with the timing of this news. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. I’m not sure if it’s going on or not but there have been reports that when T-Mobile announces “expanded” coverage in new places that it’s just a panel of two added to the tower. So if you’re not in the direction of it, you’ll lose service. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. https://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-gonzalez-sprint-t-mobile-merger-20190121-story.html Hmmm interesting. I could see prices more in line with Verizon and AT&T...T-Mobile is already knocking on that door as it is now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. You got to hand it to Verizon, they will mount wherever they can. Gotta keep that title of being the most reliable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
