  1. Fascinating. Shentel bought nTelos for $640 Million.. Current market cap of SHEN is almost 2 billion right now.... Buy some SHEN stock!
  2. Seriously? You are the most unrealistic consumer ever. How many times have you switched?
  3. I wonder what ever happened to that site downtown that gave him fits and they never upgraded.
  4. SPRINT AND OPEN MOBILE SEEK FCC CONSENT TO THE ASSIGNMENT AND TRANSFER OF CONTROL OF LICENSES AND AN INTERNATIONAL SECTION 214 AUTHORIZATION IN PUERTO RICO AND THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS https://apps.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DA-17-527A1.pdf Sprint PR Spectrum LLC, Nextel of Puerto Rico, Inc., Sprint Puerto Rico Holdings LLC, and SprintCom, Inc., as subsidiaries of Sprint Corporation (collectively, Sprint), and PRWireless, Inc., d/b/a Open Mobile (Open Mobile, and together with Sprint, the Applicants), have filed applications pursuant to Sections 214 and 310(d) of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,1 seeking Commission consent to a multi-step transaction resulting in the assignment or transfer of control of licenses and authorizations to a new limited liability company, PR Wireless PR, LLC (PRW). At the conclusion of the transaction, PRW would be jointly owned (indirectly) by Sprint and Open Mobile. Sprint would have a 68 percent economic interest and a 55 percent voting interest, and Open Mobile would have a 32 percent economic interest and a 45 percent voting interest in PRW. Sprint would have majority control of the governing Board of Directors and the owners of Open Mobile would be represented on the Board and continue to be active in the management and operations of the company. Open Mobile would assign its two Personal Communications Service (PCS) licenses, one Lower 700 MHz C Block license, microwave licenses, and an international Section 214 authorization to PRW. In addition, all of Open Mobile’s operations, including wireless network assets, employees, retail stores, and retail subscribers in Puerto Rico, would be transferred to PRW as part of the proposed transaction. Sprint would contribute seven 1.9 GHz PCS licenses, constituting all of its 1.9 GHz spectrum covering Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI), two Broadband Radio Service (BRS) licenses and its interest as a spectrum lessee under a third BRS license (the BRS licenses and spectrum leasing arrangement provide coverage only in Puerto Rico), and microwave licenses to Sprint PR Spectrum LLC, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of PRW. In addition, Sprint would convey all of the related wireless network assets, employees, retail stores, and prepaid subscribers to PRW, and would pay a revenue-based fee to PRW for managing all post-paid subscribers.
  5. Sprint granted waiver for 800MHz LTE in Phoenix area http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Releases/Daily_Business/2017/db0215/DA-17-169A1.pdf
  6. Paramount Pictures used to control a movies production, distribution and the exhibition (the theatre). In 1948, the Supreme Court ruled that level of vertical integration violated anti-trust. One could argue this merger could be a modern day version of this integration. Time Warner/ATT could in theory control HBO (production of a movie) and then only allow it to be shown on U-verse/ATT wireless devices. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_v._Paramount_Pictures,_Inc.
  7. Did you know that Trump promised that his proposed wall will not only block people from entering the country, but it will also block all RF to/from Mexico? Problem solved!
  8. Link to a summary of Reddit Q&A today with Günther Ottendorfer COO https://www.reddit.com/r/Sprint/comments/52hswh/guenther_ama_summary/?st=IT0RR3VN&sh=61d3da3b
  9. Never really paid attention to MVNO plans but that sounds like a damn good deal for Verizon service.
  10. I feel like a bad dad, but my 4-year old has an iPad mini and she can navigate it great. I setup a family account with Apple and set their signon as a child. You can then approve/deny apps they try to download from your iPhone/iPad. Highly recommend this case too - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FI9OCC0/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  11. Honestly, I've never had one issue with wifi calling on my iPhone.. Anything unique to your home network setup?
