    CSpire's options now that Sprint's going away?

    I've been wondering about CSpire's options, now that Sprint's going away. They had a "like home" roaming agreement with Sprint, where Sprint customers could roam their service in Mississippi (S. Ala & NW Fla) and their customers could roam Sprint elsewhere, without hard limits. Their LTE coverage in Mississippi is much better than T-Mobile's and they really need a good national roaming partner. The problem is that they've been slow to adopt VoLTE, having been able to rely on Sprint's and Verizon's CDMA voice. I wonder if they'll seek at similar roaming agreement with T-Mobile? It would be good for me if I could roam CSpire's LTE coverage. It might be good for T-Mobile if they didn't have to duplicate CSpire's coverage in some really rural parts of the state.

    Remember that technically, "Sprint" only currently exists by name only and is now T-mobile for all intensive purposes.
    Just another day in paradise.....

    OK but CSpire sued T-Mobile trying to force them to continue Sprint's CDMA service for something like 4 or 5 years. That went nowhere. What's CSpire going to do now? Verizon wants real money for roaming and they plan to shut down CDMA fairly soon, although the date has slipped.

    (P.S. It's "intents and purposes".)

    Obviously I can't answer that question, far above my pay grade.

    Hint: I volunteer my service here and get no pay. Not that I am complaining.

    And we all appreciate what a difficult job it is, keeping the forums somewhat peaceful.
