  1. I am going to listen to the earnings call. I am really interested in what they are going to say.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. That’s the keys that hasn’t been announced. I’m sure the removal of sprint sites will transfer ownership or something.
  7. 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.
  8. At least the purchase of band 26 isn’t for three more years.
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. One thing I’ve noticed since they turned on volte is upped backhaul. Downtown is where I work and the lone b41 tower was always swampped. However, midday now I pull greater than 100mbs. Sometimes 130. I would say they fixed some issues that I had. I also live in far NE Heights ans they have updated a tower to b41. I can’t find it but at my house I have Rsrp greater than 110 and still get 50 to 80 Mbs. I’m hoping the next 6 months this spreads more.
  14. Well I think VoLTE was just launched in ABQ. I was on band 26 and got a call. I took it and then placed my phone on speaker. I looked and it said LTE still. I will try again and get pictures.
  15. This is what I was wondering. My box runs on a single b25 carrier and pretty much doubles what we get at our house. It is a great fall back just in case.
  16. No I’m ABQ. I haven’t seen any new LTE carriers, volte, or anything. Service has suffered as a result.
