    "You can invite me back here in two years -- our network will be ranked No. 1 or No. 2," Claure said Wednesday at Recode's Code Conference in Rancho Palos Verde, Calif. He later clarified that he meant No. 1 or 2 in the major markets. (May 27, 2015)


    “The truth of the matter is we have the worst network quality scores in the industry,” Claure, who is now Sprint’s executive chair, told the judge.
    “It was getting really, really hard to sell [service] because new customers went home, tested their phone, and then realized they had coverage gaps,” Claure said about Sprint’s problems going back to 2017. “So the amount of returns started skyrocketing, and therefore, employees no longer wanted to work for Sprint. And then the churn of employees or salespeople started to skyrocket and so that became a big problem."
    “The quality of our network was four times worse than Verizon, half of T-Mobile and a little less than half of AT&T,” Claure added. (February 12, 2020)

  1. https://www.shentel.com/news/2021/april/restructuring plans Ugh.... I guess this was inevitable. Hope they all land somewhere soon.
  2. Lots of info here, but I found this the most interesting: 100% higher? My goodness, but measured from when? Marcelo's recounting about the poor customer experience at Sprint is sobering.
  3. Perhaps this is reason enough alone to swap SIM's now. It's amazing how quickly T-Mobile moves on everything compared to Sprint, and this is in the middle of a pandemic no less.
  4. Sprint got the "Can you hear me now?" Verizon guy.... (I think we've heard the last of him since the Merger, but maybe he could come back as a T-Mobile guy?) Intel just got the "I'm a Mac" guy.... Only a matter of time before we see the T-Mobile girl (Carly Foulkes) show up in a Verizon commercial. No loyalty in this business.....
  5. Meanwhile, here's what's happening at TIDAL: Jack posted a whole thread about this. Here's some background: https://www.theverge.com/2021/3/4/22313108/square-inc-tidal-majority-stake-jack-dorsey-jay-z (Note: Sprint invested $200 Million for 33% of the Company back in 2017.) Between the 800 MHz rebanding finally being done, and TIDAL now getting new ownership by Jack's company "Square", we live in interesting times.
