    This whole merger process is absolutely bizarre. It's not like most mergers. It's been YEARS at this point that they've been trying to merger. I'm hoping it fails, but it is clear that this one is...

    With over 100M customers, I don't know about that!



    That's quite true. MetroPCS or Cricket would have been more logical acquisitions for Verizon since they were CDMA and heavy in midband. AT&T...

    The R is totally unreliable. Mine shows when it's on T-Mobile (Extended). Just leave it on and use your phone. If you really want to know, use LTE Discovery and it will show you the carrier code...

    This is totally illogical since you quoted my explanation of what bankruptcy is right below it.



    Stay in business to not compete? That's completely nonsensical. You obviously either just way to...

    I'd argue it's not an improvement. I would rather see more coverage, and to manage capacity through pricing, capping, and throttling.

    Verizon prepaid has *most* of Verizon's postpaid extended and roaming coverage. Visible has none. Verizon prepaid's coverage map actually shows MORE coverage than postpaid in a couple of locations,...

    They have 3 carriers. It's not working so well for them with less competition.

    Sprint is uniquely positioned to roll out 5G in a less capital intensive way than the other carriers over the entirety of major metro markets on their n41 spectrum.

    Why would the license tell them what they have to deploy? The CLR carriers shut off AMPS years ago. AT&T has HSPA+ shut down on the PCS band in some areas, as they have just one single block on the...

    AT&T blocks it on the Moto G6, at least as of several months ago. It will work for maybe a minute, or if you place a call in that minute, it will stay on until you end the call, and then it goes back...

    We have 2 going on 3 lines on MSV 10GB that was doubled to 20GB plus 1GB Canada roaming on each line. You can't beat that today, but not everyone had/has as good of a grandfathered plan.

    Yeah, it depends on the market. I would think it would be cheaper in the long run to co-locate, but in some markets each carrier seems to have their own towers on their own grid spacing. I'm not sure...
