  1. I think they are, but I don't know if they will bite. Most of Verizon's spectrum its selling is in metropolitan areas so Sprint might pull the trigger in those areas where it's weak. Sprint is really hurting for spectrum in the upper mid-west/west and could expand its native coverage there.
  2. I don't understand why the carriers don't take advantage of this option. Sprint is already going to do it with data starting this year, so they may as well go all in to mitigate network traffic. This will be a reasonable option once VoLTE is instituted and the LTE pipeline starts to fill up.
  3. LS2 has a reprieve so they may be able to get back in the game. I give them credit, they're not giving up. I think the whole industry is looking at DISH and seeing what they will do once the FCC approves their waiver and the LTE-A equipment is ready for commercial use. It would be exciting if both LS2 and DISH came on scene at the same time. http://www.theverge....-debt-agreement
  4. by Jeff Foster Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Friday, April 20, 2012 - 11:31 AM MDT Is there a "spectrum shortage?" Those two words send shivers down the spines of wireless industry executives. New services demand ever more spectrum, and, the story goes, there simply isn't enough spectrum available. An Internet search engine will easily find hundreds of thousands of links to the term "spectrum shortage." Many claim that it will be the downfall of America. The dwindling availability of a finite resource that can't be seen or touched threatens to possibly disrupt the mobile lifestyle
  5. Good for you guy's. The Phoenix area has been in Sprints Black Hole long enough.
  6. Good points, Granted there are still some technological hurdles to be addressed, one thing that I caught was that the FCC is finally looking at making rules so the carries will need to put LTE roaming agreements in place for the future. Of course. AT&T and Verizon are against this. The framework at least is being put in place.
  7. Thanks Scott. I feel the same way in some respects. Loyalty is earned and it goes both ways. We are more of a commodity to Sprint since it must feel confident enough in the iPhone deal that it will draw in huge numbers of new customers. So I assume they feel they can lose a segment that has been with them for a while and still gain in numbers.
  8. I thought since Sprint has done practically a 180 on how it perceives us - the customer in the past year and a half, it made me curious to see how the industry as a whole is fairing. As others have commented, Sprint has priced itself pretty close to being a "premium" carrier and depending where you live a determination of the type of coverage you receive compared to what you now pay is left to you. Sprint isn't doing much IMO in the terms of retention's. I don't mean it has to give the farm away, but Sprint could decrease churn with a few incentives and getting rid of the "take it or lea
  9. by Jeff Foster Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Friday, March 30, 2012 - 1:09 PM MDT Prior to the rise of smartphones, carrier loyalty was tied more to network coverage – and for many it still is. Consumers don’t want to worry about signal strength or proximity to a cellular tower in order to place a call. At their most basic level, phones have to work for their primary purpose. In the early days of cellular, there wasn’t much difference between most voice-only handsets. Of course there were fashion and size considerations, or interest in devices that offered a wider range of compatibl
  10. If Apple announces this in October, this would be huge with the theoretical capabilities. A world iPhone. This would definitely give the Apple fans something to shout about since the other OEM's would be caught with their pants around their ankles. Good article Scott.
  11. Good points, assuming that Clear get's its network turned on in time, I think it will draw plenty of business now that LS2 is out of the picture. I believe that many firms are just sitting on the fence waiting to see if Clear can actually produce which I can understand since many were left holding the bag with LS2 signing so many firms and never had anything to show for it. Not that it was LS2's fault but Clear doesn't have a great track record itself in the funding and build out department.
  12. Wow, must be good to be a Texan. I wish Ericsson was in my neighborhood they are kicking butt. But alas, I have Samsung doing my region. The slowest provider of NV rollouts so far although it's market is the largest but hasn't the population centers that Ericsson and A/L have. They don't even have to do the upper mid-west down to Wyoming since Sprint has no native coverage in that vast swath of territory. Now I now what the Phoenix people feel like.
  13. It all comes down to who owns the name? Sprint or HTC?
  14. Good place to unwind and good members to share thoughts and comments.
  15. Clear has some interesting options before it. I think Sprint (IMO) would like to keep Clear a separate entity so it can make these type of wholesale deals with its spectrum and become a stand alone firm without Sprint providing life support. Although with all the back and forth last year between the two, I think at times it would be easier to buy Clear and be done with it.
