  1. I might as well add this I know it won’t mean much , but sprint has started to add massive mimo in El Paso after finishing up the b41 rollout on all sites About 5 sites now have it ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Our area of El Paso, Albuquerque, las cruces and Alamogordo has no priority anymore.. we could come up with some good guesses as to why: merger, low market share and no ROI. In El Paso got 3 sites where panels have been completely off hanging, crooked and upside down... have not yet been attended to. Just not hope anymore for these areas Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Ya, but what promoted sprint to add 19 thousand of them in Long Island alone.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Very harsh The network is disappointing,” wrote the New Street analysts. “Based on the Tutela data and our own speed tests, it doesn’t seem like the deployment of 19,000 small cells has improved Sprint’s network much. There is little evidence of improvement year over year; Sprint’s network in Long Island appears worse than in the rest of the country, and Sprint still lags the other national carriers in Long Island.” I think what happened year over year a good amount of these small cells had already been rolled out.... so, the few more added In the years time frame didn’t help improve the network much Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. That work is happening behind closed doors Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Many analyst believe that is what’s happening behind closed doors Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I personally think sprint is in a better position to do so! Their capex had already been tied into many upgrades ( billons spent over the years). Dish is starting from scratch, they themselves have 10 billion at best from what they have said. The only way this turns out with a happy ending, if they get a bigger player with a heavy cash infusion, unlike what SoftBank did. I believe sprint spent 24/25 billion into network vision and Believe it or not it put them ahead in terms of newer equipment at the sites ( both at the top and base stations. Verizon still runs many legacy sites using LTE. In many areas, sprint is starting to outperform TMO on capacity after finally upgrading sites to b41. That alone would bring more competition as sprint could start pulling customers away from TMO. I think the main issue would be the ROI. Presenting a 5 year plan with heavy investing to investors and the board and than say it’s up in the air if we make a return on investment. That’s the only issue I see Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Again as I mentioned. Although numbers are getting better sprint is not seeing any money! No return on investment at all, they lost 111 million for the quarter.. you carry those type of numbers over 4 quarters those are huge losses https://www.bizjournals.com/kansascity/news/2019/08/02/sprint-first-quarter-continues-losses.amp.html?ana=yahoo&__twitter_impression=true Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. The FCC and DOJ are currently plotting to counterattack the state AGs lawsuit. FCC may issue unusual ruling supporting the merger that explicitly states that there are no anti-trust issues. Some have called this a form of undermining the states A statement like that is aimed for an audience of one. The judge that is Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Yes, that’s what Neville plans is. This was Neville quote.. it is the fastest and smoothest way to transition everyone Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I’m sure the strategy is to get those customers into newer handsets and to TMO favor in a band 71 capable device and get a great deal to do so Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I guess only 20 million handsets are capable of it .. most newer phones are .. most older ones can’t Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Tmo is reporting 20 million handsets Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Yes, they will all be brought under one core.. 20 million sprint customers are ready for it via firmware update Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Is it not reciprocal roaming In the same filing, T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray also provided some details on how T-Mobile plans to migrate Sprint customers to its network once the merger is approved. Ray said that it will move existing T-Mobile and Sprint customers to a common core network. That will require T-Mobile’s engineering team to bridge the two standalone core networks together. To do that, they will use a bridge technology called multi-operator core network (MOCN), which basically uses a virtual single core network to route services to the T-Mobile core. At the same time, T-Mobile engineers will increase the scale of T-Mobile’s core network to handle increased traffic created by the new Sprint customers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. So, for an extra $10 bucks you could potential fix that coverage gap yourself ? Might have to think about that m. Although tmo will eventually fix that gap, there is no telling when Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Now that rollout is on fire Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Oh ya the 12-18 months time frame on building new sites still applies to the new tmo. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Those areas I do see them filling gaps rather quickly. I was thinking about much more rural areas that wills possibly take more time.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. TMO lacks coverage on I-95 ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
