  1. So Claure is now crying that Sprint doesn't have low band spectrum to compete..... Well wasn't this the guy alone with his former CFO that said during many conferences earning calls that low band is the spectrum of the past. Sprint/Softbank colluded with Tmobile to allow them to buy most of the 600mhz band while they sat out.
  2. They will always be the redheaded stepchild until they deliver big results on the network side against the competition. Also, everyone in the industry has given up to the idea that Sprint will be around in 8 months.
  3. With the current administration, all you need is a nice bribe, but I don't want to get political on this forum.
  4. Yikes, The auction that they needed to participate was the 600mhz one, but since we know they were colluding with Tmobile for a proposed merger it doesn't matter anymore. Sprint has plenty of unused spectrum for 5G, that 120mhz of band 41 would allow them to bring peak speeds of 4Gpbs as 5G mature. Tmobile paying 26 billion for Sprint I would say they got it on the cheap.
  5. If they migrate all customers to PCS and AWS they better have a state of the art small cell network in every city since that is what Verizon did with their PCS and AWS holdings here in New York City and congestion is a thing of the past. This merger is the most idiotic decision in the history of the business, especially when the 5G era is about to begin and Sprint was going to have the upper hand.
  6. If this merger goes through....... The bottom line this transaction is pretty much a done deal and the only ones that will be barking are some of the state's attorney generals. I am glad this thing will be done so we once and for all see the Global Crossing John Legere in full display 6 months after the merger is completed. Oh, I am not sure why most of those Sprint employees at Overland Park still around not typing their resume because Legere and his gang eventually will shut down that campus. Do you think that having to pay rent, local taxes for two campus is a great business decision... I think not. The Overland Park campus will be sold completely to that startup healthcare company that is making the rumors. Sprint network team will be dismissed once the network integration is completed. I am sure those Tmobile network people don't think highly of the Sprint ones. The Tmobile gang is now saying all the right things to please the Feds and to make feel comfortable Sprint workforce, but once everything is official they will hand pink sleeves left and right.
  7. I guess he meant Tmobile to build 5G more quickly. I know Marcelo wants to get his merger bonus and run back to Miami permanently.
  8. Sprint management dropped the ball again. They had the upper hand going into 5G then decided to surrender to Tmobile when that particular company didn't have the spectrum holdings to deploy it. Tmobile has been selling the myth of 5G in that little slice of spectrum they own in the 600mhz which won't cut it. Massa Son surrendered to the Germans for just a couple of board seats and a minority stake, what a fool. Tmobile then would have to go into a bidding war with the twin bells for 3.5ghz-4.7ghz spectrum which they would lose since the two mentioned have a lot of money to burn.
  9. The way things are going with Pai lately I wouldn't be surprised if he votes this thing down in a decisive 3-2 vote. Furthermore, he is a Verizon agent and I wouldn't think they want one big entity with that massive amount of 2.5ghz and 1900mhz for 5G.
  10. Perhaps they would have been more competitive if these upgrades occurred before the announcement of the merger thus the govt would have vetoed this merger more easily.
  11. A couple of years back they were close or the best carrier in Chicago, and during the last 12 months, they fell back to the end of the line. Even better in Denver, they led the overall award for 4 straight quarters, and now it has fallen back to the end of the pack. I hate to agree with Massa Son, but this is where scale plays a big role, the twin bells only need to drop millions on upgrades or densification without hurting their wallet and its put them back to the top on any particular market.
  12. When you are Verizon with 152 million customers, 132 billion on revenue, and spend 17 billion on CAPEX annually without having to do expansions since you already cover the whole US everything comes in handy.
  13. This was basically the farewell tour. Also, it is funny these executives are still trying to sell the deception about improving the company when they are putting all their energy and resources in the nation's Capital in order to get this merger through.
  14. This merger is pretty much approved in my opinion. ATT and Verizon are making moves on their data plans which indicate this. Verizon got three plans: Go unlimited 80/mo with only 480P video Beyond unlimited 90/mo (720P video) Above unlimited 100 dollars/mo And if you want 1080P video you need to chime in 10 dollars extra Meanwhile, ATT is forcing unlimited users to buy skinny TV bundled plans. Once the merger is approved I think Verizon will raise the price of their Beyond and Above unlimited plans...... because of 5G.
