  1. So we appear to have reached the horse trading stage. 2 things come to mind, first that T&S are basically going to give up whatever the government wants to make this merger happen. Secondly if we're at this stage approval is probably happening, unless the FCC requests something onerous. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  2. Interestingly enough, i can only seem to find B26 up here in Williston, I have not found any 25 or 41, no matter where in town I go. I have a suspicion what tower it's on, but not for sure. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  3. I believe I was North of the site. I did not get any signal until I got into the north side of town. I just was surprised to see B26 where no Sprint activity has been mentioned at all. I'm not sure whether to treat it as a native signal yet. I'll see if I can find B25 as well. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  4. Yeah, but this is in roaming territory and definitely not on their coverage map. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  5. Am I seeing this right? Sprint is broadcasting a 3x3 B26 here in Williston, ND? To note, the 1x is what Verizon broadcasts as out here. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  6. So if CPUC denies it, but the feds approve it, does it matter that California denied it? Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  7. How's the transition been for you from I-wireless to T? Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  8. I have an unlocked Note 9 on Oreo and it LTE roams fine. So it might just be a Pixel issue. Or Pie. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  9. I'm on a really rural project right now and US Cellular roaming has been fantastic on my unlocked Note 9. I save my heavier data usage for when I'm back at the hotel, which is in Sprint territory. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  10. Unfortunately, Sprint does not appear to be offering the 512GB version for some reason. While I don't care about the storage, the extra 2GB of RAM would be nice.
  11. I've noticed this recently where I'm at. There's a valley in the middle of my job that's a LTE dead zone, it used to just drop to Sprint 3G. This week, it started to grasp USCC LTE roaming instead of the 3G signal. So I do wonder if this is a conscious decision by Sprint. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  12. I would think the new company would keep existing relationships with partners like Shentel and USCC intact to mitigate those issues. To say T-Mobile doesn't care about rural areas is false. They did just buy out I-Wireless, who's primary service areas are rural. Like with every company, some rural areas get better concentration than other areas do. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  13. I-Wireless is T Mobile now. It hasn't officially closed yet, but T bought out their partner last October.
  14. This appears to be the strategy to try to get approval. Try to make the cable companies (and Google Fi) appear to be viable competition, possibly concede reduced network access rates to MVNOs to "preserve competition" and maybe some open access concessions. All this to try to avoid spectrum divestures.
