  1. It is an estimate based on the statement john saw has made on deploying massive mimo on "thousands" of sites and him not saying "10s of thousands". I think it is reasonable to assume that means around 10000 given how the company is known for making exaggerated statements on it's network investments.i think you are wrong on the brand issue but even of it was slightly better that T-Mobile at it worse, how much debt did t-mobile have when it started it's network investment and rebranding campaign? Far, far less that Sprint, where is their degrading money going to come from? Sprint has two roads to walk down, the cheap city carrier like what cricket and metro use to be or the merger. The merger gives us a killer 5g network that is truly nationa wide. I vote for that.
  2. Sprint's brand isnt good. It is far, far behind every carrier. The can brand about being most improved but when you start negative and people view you slightly less negative that doesnt make your brand good. I know massive mimo isn't cheap and sprint doesnt have the resources to deploy it properly. That is my argument. The merger has to happen if we are going to have at least one carrier that will deploy 5g on what any reasonable person would understand to be a national level.
  3. Volte will not work in my market at all. You lose LTE signal about 10-15 percent of the time outside and 30-40 percent inside and I live in the 6th largest metro area in the US. This goes far beyond any issues others had with VoLTE.
  4. I dont think so. It is onky being deployee in urban cores. Not even suburbs are getting 5 g love by enlarge. If they were serious about building a 5g network 75 percent of their towers would be palmed for massive Mimo upgrades, as it is it is closer to a quarter. You anti merger people live in a fantasy world if you think sprint will be anything more than a metro or cricket circa 2013 if the merger doesnt go through. P.s.. There brand is still trash compared to even T mobile worst year. And T-Mobile recovered after billions and years of rebranding. Where are those billions going to come for sprint?
  5. It also doesnt give them the resources to build out a 5g network properly, restore their brands or come up with a market place niche. I was asking back in 2014 why would someone buy sprint amd cam only come up with price. That is still the case. How is VoLTE going to work on their network across most markets? There is a reason people have to opt. Into it.
  6. Yes. One city doesnt make a competitive nation wide network.

    Mike Lee is very libertarian when it comes to economics. I would have been surprised if he didn't weight in positively.

    No one has any intension of pumping 20 billion into sprint because they won't get a return on their money. I am 95 percent confident of that. Obviously I objected to the part of your statement the "100 percent" was refering to as i called that out.

    What do you base this on? What market research? I'll bet zero. Nothing is 100 percent in business or in life.

    That is the NY post. A much more reliable source than the washington post. Lol.
  12. Was the New CFO an AI program? He certainly sounded like it.
  13. Not really, how hard is it to changes some signage after the merger?

    Not according to their stated plans. Part of the sale to regulators is a rural build out. If they don't do that, I would imagine they would run into problems with regulators.

    This exactly. If the merger goes through t-mobile has committed to giving sprint customers the same plans or better ones and both customer bases get a better network. Why would you leave? Seems like a stupid move.
