  1. This doesn't kill the merger talk. This is just 4G. Sprint is going to need a lot of money if they want their 2.5 Ghz spectrum to really work. There are still too many outdoor spots were 2.5 Ghz doesn't reach in major markets today. I don't think I have seen a new Sprint macro tower go up in my area in ages now. Hopefully after the merger, the EBS/BRS band is put to good use.
  2. I just don't know if VoLTE roaming will work with At&t anytime soon. At&t doesn't allow VoLTE on non-At&t branded Android phones. At&t users with phones such as the Pixel, OnePlus, and Essential don't get VoLTE.
  3. Good. Sprint needs to spend as little as possible on things like roaming. I wonder what happened that LTE roaming was liberally allowed?

    There probably will be in a few markets.
  5. I wonder how many subs Sprint has in San Antonio? Both AT&T and T-Mobile seem, at least from my perspective, the most popular carriers in the Alamo City.

    There will likely be a few areas where the new T-Mobile will have to dump some midband spectrum. When that happens, swaps and realignment will likely have to happen in order to pair both the seller and the buyer.

    There will be more, especially now that the merger looks like it's going to happen.

    Somewhere else in another part of the country, Verizon may need Sprint's help. Helping another carrier isn't uncommon if the favor is returned in another market.

    It happened on my old Nexus 5x before I switched. I'll see if I can find an old screenshot. Don't know how useful it is to us due to the throttle Sprint has on AT&T LTE. I'm pretty sure CA works on USCC roaming if it's working on AT&T roaming.

    You're underestimating the pace at which T-Mobile moves in order to deploy LTE. I've seen some sites with SISO and then some other sites with satellite backhaul on 600 Mhz.

    Carrier Aggregation, while useless due to the throttle, can be used by Sprint handsets that support CA on AT&T's bands.

    It would be no different than people who are in US Cellular markets today. I'm sure you would still receive a warning for excessive roaming. Also, I doubt 99% of cellphone users even know how to force their phone to roam.

    Sprint to Begin VoLTE Soft Launch in September

    This is a similar experience with VoLTE on the early days with Verizon and T-Mobile. Choppy calls on those networks are due to poor rf performing handsets. QoS won't be able to fix that.

    From the towers? Probably a fat NO.

    Binge On hasn't been a thing for a while now. It's all T-Mobile One, T-Mobile One 55+ or T-Mobile One Military.
