• Sprint Claims its LTE Network is Bad in Move To Help Merger with T-Mobile



    Yes you read that right! Do not adjust your AMOLED or Super Retina display.

    In a recent filing called: “Sprint’s Network Faces Severe Challenges” the beleaguered carrier overlays its LTE coverage against T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon. By showcasing only its LTE network it really shows the disparity against its competitors.

    But there is a reason behind the madness. By industry perspective it appears that Sprint may be trying to win sympathy as a strategy to win over the FCC's blessing. It feels that by pointing out its weaknesses the whole concept of allowing the merger to proceed should be a no-brainer.

    See the comparison images Sprint has ceded to regulators of its LTE network compared to T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon respectively.



    What do you guys think? Is this a winning strategy?

      T- Mobile constantly talks about the speed of their LTE network but downplays the poor geographic coverage.

      Merging two second-tier carriers with weak native coverage isn’t going to create a new top-tier carrier with good coverage. I know that their narrative is that the merger will create economies of scale that free up money that will be used to create a third top-tier carrier. Perhaps that’s true, though the merged company could decide that it’s more prudent to just remain a second tier carrier and continue to just cede the customers that care about coverage to AT&T and Verizon.

      I think I see a bit more white space in the posted AT&T map than I do in the T-Mobile map, particularly west of the Rockies.

    Moto G7 Power is the same. I rooted my phone only to get rid of FB. I hated FB reappearing. Truly it's the only reason I rooted this phone.
