  1. It's a perpetual license, not 15 year like in Europe so it's basically impossible to overpay. If duo are willing to pay a certain price then softb should be Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Def faster than the sprint store telegraph & 12-mile: 0.1mbps on iPhone 6, note edge, etc Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Son stated buying TMO was plan A. I'm sure he would've bid for 20x20 of 600 had that gone through. But now he has to compete in a 4 carrier market and as you said, softb is a big company with lots of opportunities for investment; throwing more of softb's money into a 4 carrier free for all is probably the least profitable.

  4. So you think softb will give sprint enough $ for a proper 10x10 no matter the reserve size? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. http://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/story/wireless-carriers-may-hesitate-partner-firstnet-analysts-say/2015-06-01 If sprint won't bid on 10x10 of 600 because softb would rather spend money on video games http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/06/01/us-softbank-supercell-idUSKBN0OH23H20150601 then is b14 a viable alternative? Beggars can't be choosers.
  6. Tmo cleared 700a in NYC http://www.tmonews.com/2015/05/t-mobile-clear-to-launch-700mhz-band-12-lte-in-new-york-city/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Any sources for any of your assertions? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks. This is why anything more than 1080p on a phone is ludicrous. The iPhone 6+, 5.5inch, is 1080p. I don't hear anyone complaining about its resolution. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. That's cause sprint waited too long to do the overhaul and caused huge service disruptions. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. More importantly, how big does a screen have to be before 1080p is insufficient? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. There can be compatibility. But carriers can still throttle the video stream to 1080p. Problem solved. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. 1) carriers charge mvnos wholesale rates, not retail. The diff is that retail rate is higher to pay for advertising so if 'everyone' flees to mvnos, fine. Carriers still make money. 2) if (1) analysis is incorrect, carriers will just raise the rate they charge to mvnos. Simple. Mvnos are basically the carriers' bitches.

  13. Correct. They care that it works. They don't care the engineering behind it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Consumers don't care. I wouldn't stay with a company just because I knew WHY their product sucks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. There's still sites not nv complete in NYC. So yeah… and no, we don't care it's the landlords blah blah blah. It's mid 2015. Get it done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. But sprint has 2.5ghz in abundance not midband. This means higher CAPEX. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Everyone agrees $5bil doesn't include ngn, including btig; see my summary of their article somewhere above. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. It is a fact that softb's plan a was to buy TMO. Son stated so during recent softb earnings call. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. If purchased from google play Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Like what? Plan A was to buy TMO to eliminate competition on the low end but fcc said no. If a Dem wins whitehouse, that's 4 or even 8 more years of competing against TMO and the duo. Softb may decide that it can get better returns by investing its own additional cash in India and other emerging markets. Sprint can still take on more debt to fund 600 auction and densification and if Claure delivers, THEN son can step in and inject more $ to pay off that high interest debt. If it doesn't workout, softb will be shielded somewhat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. It's free registration. I don't know what policy is for posting content from free sites so I'll summarize. 1) sprint 2015 CAPEX is $5bil which is more akin to maintenance than network improvement. CAPEX should increase by >35% if we are believe sprint that it wants to better its network. 2) sprint says softb supports sprint yet they keep talking about selling spectrum or issuing debt. 3) softb is looking to invest in other ventures so there could be internal struggle against giving sprint more money. 4) Claure repeatedly states softb is 'behind' the network densification plan Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Lte a isn't gonna solve att's speed issues. They need densification - macro and small cells - and to deploy their b30 already. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
