    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Interesting... in the following CNN link, T Mobile Indicated the Justice Dept, Homeland Security and Defense Dept all withdrew a request for a merger delay.... "Cleared key hurdles"... I like the video feed, if you can see it... with Marcelo and John. John is always the key spokesperson. Marcelo is kinda just in the background mostly... Could this mean that the merger is very quickly drawing to a close? What's your take? How soon do you think this can this happen? T-Mobile and Sprint just cleared key hurdles to their huge merger

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Does anyone know if Sprint has completely built out all their 1900 band? I know they had received more (G Block?) when they had to return some 800 and 900mHz back when they closed with Nextel. I'm just wondering if any spare spectrum is available, so once T Mobile gets the green light, there is something they can quickly implement?

    Looks like Sprint and T Mobile have been active around my house. I see at least 3 new small cells that have going up in the last 2 weeks and are active. I can pull a band 41 signal from 2 of them... the 3rd I'm assuming is Sprint or T-Mo? I'm not sure what the T-Mobile small cells look like. Its very good to see progress. Does anyone know if the small cells can broadcast more than one frequency? Ie... if the merger is approved and T-Mo turns band 41 into 5G... then I assume I will not be able to pull that in with my Samsung 9+?

    Nobody "Skimmed over the fact". All financials were submitted and disclosed.

    He also said/reminded the host that the old theory of needing to be 4 National carriers for competition isn't necessarily true anymore, when speaking that there are 2 large carries and 2 small,... possibly 1 failing in the future.... He acknowledged that will also play a part in determining the outcome.

  10. Does anyone know why in the Detroit suburbs, Macomb included and Rochester, where I live, that a once great B41 signal has all but gone away? I used to get good reception on B41 and barely ever fell back to B25. Now... I never pick up B41 (getting it is rare) and B25 is overloaded and slow.

  12. Any news on the Sprint Townhall today with T Mobile people presenting?

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    I'm wondering many things. One is, that I use to have pretty decent band 41 coverage and if not, 1900 was good. Now, in the last 6 months, no band 41 (you have to be right near the tower it seems now) and 1900 isn't anything too great anymore. What happened? Is Sprint turning down the signal strength? The service, what was once pretty good, is just lack luster now. Are they purposely chasing away customers to say: Hey look... we're bleeding and can't stop...
