    Who determines when a consumer "doesn't need to be" connected?


    Id settle for a carrier actually offering coverage where their own maps say they do.
  2. Yea, but TMobile has ground to make up on Verizon...

    Yea, but TMobile has ground to make up on Verizon and at&t, so them lowering their CAPEX expectations over the next 2 years doesn't bode well for rural build outs. They only expect to grow their...
  3. One thing people should keep in mind....TMobile...

    One thing people should keep in mind....TMobile has lowered their CAPEX estimates through 2023, not raised them. In fact, everything you hear from TMobile is cost cutting, and record profits. While...
  4. It's because you switched plans. When you...

    It's because you switched plans. When you switched to magenta and back to 55+ they put you on the new 55+ plan to include a 3rd line. AFAIK the old legacy 55+ plan would be eligible for it.

    Tecfone yes, visible no. Visible doesn't have...

    Tecfone yes, visible no. Visible doesn't have access to Verizon's LTEIRA partners, nor their 3g network. Though the latter becomes a moot point soon. TracFone has access to both.
  6. Time will fully tell. TMobile has built out some...

    Time will fully tell. TMobile has built out some rural areas, and has ignored others. One thing to remember, rural areas don't win any type of rootmetrics or open signal award to make 2 million press...
  7. Verizon is more leveraged than at&t right...

    Verizon is more leveraged than at&t right now........They must be "broke" also. That must be why they don't give you all the free stuff you somehow feel you are entitled to....

    Highly unlikely, all TMobile has to do is report filings that they still intend to use the brand. Sprint didn't do this, thus the name was up for grabs, TMobile likely will do this if the want to...
  9. Define "long term"? You are getting the services...

    Define "long term"? You are getting the services free for a year. Do you feel then TMobile giving away Pandora or mlb for 6 months and 12 months wasn't a perk? Both Verizon and TMobile give decent...
  10. Not really that rural at all to be honest, 30 min...

    Not really that rural at all to be honest, 30 min out of Dayton 30 out of Columbus. It was urban enough for sprint to deploy b41. TMobile just never cared about this area. Not sure which way you head...
  11. Of course you can "count" them. You're not paying...

    Of course you can "count" them. You're not paying anything for the service for 12 months. That's like saying the mlb season pass can't be counted as a "perk" of TMobile Tuesdays, because it's only...
  12. Disagree with sprint/TMobile having rural Ohio...

    Disagree with sprint/TMobile having rural Ohio covered. Plenty of places in rural Ohio my TMobile line gets no service, or unusable service. Sprint did have my area actually covered well (wouldn't...
  13. So because you don't like the services, must mean...

    So because you don't like the services, must mean everyone else feels the same way. Gotcha. It's all about you. Bottom line, Verizon offers more perks with their top tier plan, doesn't matter if you...
  14. You also get more benefits with the Verizon plan....

    You also get more benefits with the Verizon plan. You get Disney+, Hulu, ESPN+, 12 months of discovery+, either apple arcade or Google play pass for 12 months, apple music for free and 600gb of cloud...
  15. The cheap plans (start for Verizon and essentials...

    The cheap plans (start for Verizon and essentials for TMobile) are plans neither carrier really cares about. They both want people on their top tier plans. Max and get more. Which both are priced at...
  16. Oh yea? Tell me, what was Verizon's free iphone...

    Oh yea? Tell me, what was Verizon's free iphone promo they ran last quarter then???
  17. The industry has shifted from wanting a high ARPU...

    The industry has shifted from wanting a high ARPU to more focused on a high ARPA. TMobile in particular has been aggressive in this switch.

    All carriers used to charge like that though. I...
  18. You neglect to realize the main reason why at&t...

    You neglect to realize the main reason why at&t and TMobile gained and Verizon lost. TMobile and at&t gave away free phone promos (particularly iphone promos) last quarter and were aggressive on that...
  19. It's the same thing TMobile does. I know the...

    It's the same thing TMobile does. I know the narrative is TMobile is this "ultra cheap" service that gives customers more, but, that's really not the case, especially if that person is a single line...
  20. Of course they are. As the Bloomberg article...

    Of course they are. As the Bloomberg article pointed out, TMUS debt and their earnings are consolidated into D.T.' s debt, and earnings. Paying off tmus debt, reduces the total debt load of D.T. ...
  21. Except TMobile is still playing catch up to the...

    Except TMobile is still playing catch up to the other 2 in terms of overall coverage area and can't really afford to lower CAPEX much, if at all, in the next few years. Especially if they are serious...
  22. Right, but having them pay down tmus debt,...

    Right, but having them pay down tmus debt, decreases D.T's total debt load. The thing is all these take money (issuing dividends for the stock, paying down the American company debt), this money...
  23. Right, they may direct more funds to dividends...

    Right, they may direct more funds to dividends and have tmus pay their debt down, decreasing D.T.'s total liabilities and opening up cash flow for the German business. Decreasing tmus spending...
  24. They don't have to write themselves a check,...

    They don't have to write themselves a check, their earnings are consolidated into D.T.'s. Bloomberg has a good article on it here

    This is on the customer for not reading what they are actually signing. It's the same thing as buying something with a credit card. The finance company (in this case the carrier) will front you the...
