  1. You are correct sir. I think they could even fit the 1x carriers in the gaurd bands. Just get rid of 3G already.
  2. No 10x10. There are 2 5x5 carriers. Sprints Albuquerque spectrum holdings are very limited. They have PCS Block B 30mhz, D 10mhz, and G 10 mhz. In addition, they have about 90 mhz of B41 (I finally found third carrier downtown) and 14 mhz of 800. They have two 1900 1x carriers, two 1900 CDMA Rev A. carriers. I don't think this is necessary as band 26 is pretty wide spread through the city. If they could trim those down and add a b25 carrier, that would be fantastic.
  3. Just to confirm I am reading this right. You are connected to a 20mhz Band 2 aggregated with two 20mhz Band 46 (LAA TDD), How far away from the location do you lose Band 46? Very interesting. Proven FDD with TDD aggregation.
  4. Tmo working with Dish to utilize their 600mhz (leasing)
  5. Believe that they want to be a provider to MVNOs.
  6. all agreements will be carried forward and not cancelled.
  7. Altice MVNO agreement question.
  8. Haven't really discussed anything yet.
  9. I am going to listen to the earnings call. I am really interested in what they are going to say.
  10. With all of Dish's spectrum, customers and employees obtained, they really will be a small 4th competitor. Lets see how they deploy and get it completed. June 2023 is coming.
  11. I like these details. The prepaid businesses, including Boost Mobile, serve approximately 9.3 million customers in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. At close, Sprint's prepaid businesses and customers will immediately move to DISH, as will the more than 400 employees and nationwide independent retail network that supports more than 7,500 retail outlets. Once DISH starts deploying its own facilities-based infrastructure, DISH's wireless customers will be able to seamlessly access the New T-Mobile network in areas where DISH has yet to deploy its own facilities. This Infrastructure MNO arrangement is part of the Master Network Services Agreement between the parties. The 800 MHz nationwide spectrum adds to DISH's existing 600 MHz and 700 MHz low-band holdings. The low-band portfolio, well suited for wide geographic coverage and in-building penetration, complements DISH's AWS-4 and AWS H Block mid-band offerings, which promise high data capacity potential with narrower operating range. DISH has committed to new buildout schedules associated with the company's 600 MHz, AWS-4, 700 MHz E Block and AWS H Block licenses. In addition, DISH has committed to deploy 5G Broadband Service utilizing those licenses. The new commitments require DISH to use its spectrum to deploy a nationwide 5G broadband network covering at least 70 percent of the U.S. population by June 14, 2023. If DISH fails to meet its 5G deployment deadlines, DISH will make voluntary contributions to the U.S. Treasury of up to $2.2 billion.
  12. That is a synergy from this acquisition right away. Tmo will determine which sites to decommission and Dish has first right to select the site. The article said 20,000 but I assume more will be expected over the next 3 years.
  13. A big takeaway I just read was this, " Sprint and T-Mobile will divest some of their wireless spectrum to Dish Network and make at least 20,000 cell sites and hundreds of retail stores available to the company." I was wondering what they were going to do. Makes more sense.
  14. That’s the keys that hasn’t been announced. I’m sure the removal of sprint sites will transfer ownership or something.
  15. Yes. 800 is basically 15mhz accross the county (reduced due to IBEZ). 700 is pretty much 10mhz across the US. When you add 600 (those holdings vary depending on location), this pushes it above the 800. However, I still don't like seeing them divest any.
  16. At least the purchase of band 26 isn’t for three more years.
  17. Dish would be required to offer cellphone service to consumers. It would pay $1.4 billion for Sprint’s customer accounts, most of which come from its Boost Mobile prepaid brand, and $3.6 billion three years later to buy Sprint spectrum licenses in the 800 megahertz range, these people said. https://www.wsj.com/amp/articles/u-s-poised-to-approve-merger-of-t-mobile-sprint-11563967640
  18. Thats my best guess. It is pretty pathetic. Only B26 and two B25 carriers are keeping it going. Speeds are good b/c I think plenty of people have left which makes everything better. As I noted earlier, I picked up my first B41 signal north of Paseo on Wyoming this past week. I was sitting outside of starbucks with RSRP of 125 and pulled 50mbs. There are two monopole locations along Paseo and those do not have updated tri-panels. I can't seem to find where I picked up that signal.
  19. I believe this is the case. Most towers they are the same space. I can only count 5 or 6 in NE Heights where they are not. I am sure there are more though. Most of the ones I can think of are monopole.
  20. I would say all towers have received NV update. However, I would say less than 25% of towers have B41. I have found only 4 8t8r. The rest are all mini macros. I can now confirm downtown has been updated to 8t8r as I could only aggregate one additional B41 carrier. It now has 3 and basically all times of day I am greater than 100mbs.
