    Actually I wouldn't mind seeing T-Mobile and Sprint enter into an agreement to do a joint build out of an LTE network supported by both.

And they could also get a ton of revenue from all of the roaming European LTE customers.
    They will start deploying LTE on their 800MHz spectrum in 2013 using LTE Advanced's Carrier Aggregation feature. The handoff between their 1900MHz and 800MHz will be totally seamless. Actually there will not be any handoff in the classical sense of the word. Sprint will be refarming the rest of their 1900MHz holdings for LTE and will also use Clear's 2500MHz network for overflow in places like NYC and San Fran.

    Sprint and T-Mobile's spectrum pooling was a bigger possibility before T-Mobile decided to use their 1900MHz for HSPA+ and AWS for LTE. I understand their reasons for doing that and fully agree with them. Sprint could definitely host T-Mobile's AWS LTE network on their Network Vision platform.

    If they were to do a spectrum sharing thing in a few years it would be a amazing(at least in my market) T-Mobile has like 40MHZ of AWS and then however much sprint has they could get a phone that could incorporate all of the frequencies and use them at once and they could have a true high speed mobile broadband network with incredibly fast speeds in the 100's of MBPS
