  1. Right in the event the merge is approved. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. 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
  3. Well that changed fast. I wonder what else they could want when it comes to antitrust? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.

  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. I just want sprint to do this 5G thing right and not try to throw shots. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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.

  16. How ironic with the timing of this news. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. This auction, I can only image how much Verizon and AT&T are spending. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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 so
  24. 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
