    Where does it say July 26th, typo of 29? They have to sell off the assets and make a deal or else lawsuit by DOJ, according to whom? Faber? Is this another he says she says kind of "information"? So yes, nothing new learned.

    The article said, "The U.S. Justice Department has told T-Mobile US Inc and Sprint Corp to wrap up a deal by the end of next week to sell assets that are to be divested as a condition of their proposed merger or face a lawsuit aimed at stopping the transaction, a source familiar with the deal said on Thursday. "

    The 26th is the end of this business week. You claimed this deadline has been known for months. Where did you see it prior to this article?

    July 29th is the deadline that has been thrown around for months now as the deadline when the deal was expected to close. As for the quotation you pulled from the article, DOJ did not made this statement public. Hence its not news but a mere rumor. A source familiar with the deal is not a source, which fierce revealed to be David Faber. Doubt Faber knows more about this deal than we already know due to lack of confirmation from multiple sources outside of Faber.

    As for my claim of the date being know for months, a quick search reveals few articles. Here is one link for your convenience; https://www.engadget.com/2019/04/29/...eadline-delay/ - dated April 29

    There are many more articles referring this date. Feel free to do your own research if any doubt arises.

    On July 11th, multiple sources stated that the deadline would be pushed past July 29th such as this one:

    "T-Mobile and Sprint are reportedly planning to push their merger agreement past its July 29 deadline as they iron out details. "

    https://markets.businessinsider.com/...9-7-1028347141

    It really doesn't matter whether the statement was made in public or in a backroom. You stated: "Pointless article. Same information we knew for months. "

    The article stated: "The U.S. Justice Department has told T-Mobile US Inc and Sprint Corp to wrap up a deal by the end of next week to sell assets that are to be divested as a condition of their proposed merger or face a lawsuit aimed at stopping the transaction"

    I asked, where has the information been available for months that the Justice Dept would sue by the end of this week if T-Mobile did not make a deal to sell assets. You haven't shown anywhere that such a Justice Dept deadline has been known before. The deadline of July 29th was set by T-Mobile & Sprint---not the justice department.

    So it turns out the article did include new information, contrary to your post.

    You can doubt the source. But what the source stated was just stated recently and not stated months ago.

    And yes, sources do sometimes shed insight into items that aren't available in official statements. Some people are interested in such things.

    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 just bizarre.

    Their spectrum issues are very real. AT&T has half again more spectrum per POPs, T-Mobile has about double, and Sprint has easily quadruple. Granted, their customers aren't all distributed the same way, not all spectrum is made the same, but the point remains, Verizon has a spectrum problem.

    Although Verizon does manage all their available spectrum very well, they are definitely running out of room. Verizon loves to carpet bomb metro areas with small cells to make up for it and for the most part they do an exceptional job making use of that spectrum but small cells only reach so far. I’m hoping that they can get some of that spectrum that dish is just squatting on.

    That being said I still think the reason that Verizon has not been pushing to buy spectrum is because of the way they run their network. Verizon loves to augment capacity with small cells (this approach is definitely proven to work well and gives them a much bigger head start with the 5G rollout) compared to AT&T who would just rather max out macro sites with every bit of spectrum they have available.

    Very well said. Their small cell rollout may make them the only carrier that can really scale out 5G. While AT&T is reliant on rooftop macros and steel in the air as you get out into the 'burbs, Verizon has a full small cell network grid in many large cities where you don't even really need the macros. They've also been quite creative in putting them in busy spots even in relatively exurban areas, filling in highway coverage gaps, and even in one instance that I know of, using 5 to bridge the gap between two towers on a busy 2-lane road.
