  1. Looks like Illinois jumping on the train to block the merger. I’m sure what comes with this is people saying “if the merger is blocked, Sprint will be out of business and their assets sold to other companies.” Everyone is just completely looking past T-Mobile stopping their 5G deployment all together. To me, that looks like a money issue if you ask me especially if it’s suppose to be BAU until the merger closes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. When is the merger expected to officially close if all goes well? It seems like everyday it’s something new and I’ve gotten lost along the way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Probably a cherry picked location but who knows. Let’s try this with 4G and not 5G. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’m really interested to see what T-Mobile does with this 2.5 and the rate of tower integration. I would like to guess that cities are going to be very dense and the service not working in buildings should die as well. Crowded events like concerts and stuff shouldn’t be as bad either.

  5. Assuming that the current/ planned 5G markets will stay 5G markets immediately after the merger, I would assume it will stay stay at the pace it’s at. One less thing for T-Mobile to do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I was planning on switching back to Sprint (Verizon customer currently) around September. Would I still be able to get a current sprint plan since the deal hasn’t closed and probably won’t until October? Also has there been any detail as to if T-Mobile will honor the Hulu, Tidal add-ones for the 3 year promise? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I wonder if that’s just for Sprint customers only? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. So we are far from done with the merger closing and being official? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. I hope pcmag bas great results in their testing. The upload...well... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. 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
  15. Right in the event the merge is approved. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. 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
  17. Well that changed fast. I wonder what else they could want when it comes to antitrust? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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.

  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. I just want sprint to do this 5G thing right and not try to throw shots. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. 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
  25. 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
