    As far as Im concerned they do have an advantage with the use of higher bands because just as my heading stated "guess who has the most???" While, yes many are fighting and spending to acquire lower bands, Sprint doesnt have to "spend" to acquire the higher bands that will be needed to implement 5G. Speed and data carrying capabilities are the critical component of 5G working efficiently, quickly, moving large data amounts in fast real time scenarios ( for example self driving cars, videos, etc). We ALL know suppliers have been working with carriers on 5G high band use, but AS I stated (again) guess who has the most. Yes Sprint has a high debt load, no secret there,BUT it doesnt take genius to see how demand and need of higher bands = higher cost for that spectrum which really == higher cost to acquire those bands. Something Sprint doesnt have to cough up and can further focus on capitalizing on leasing, selling etc their excess amounts of said spectrum..thus further financing expansion and not having to beg Softbank, or customers to come on board. They HAVE IT.

    We all have our perspectives, that is mine. Ii respect yours and dont partake in the name calling or disrespecting others. I expect the same from ya TR. I dont bash you, dont lump me into a "pumper" group. I trade, invest long term in different companies and Sprint is a speculative, high risk, but yes HIGH reward option that I believe will pay off AND have already enjoyed doubling my investment with.

    Good day sir.

  • Everyone that bashes Sprints network strategy is in for a rude awakening! Critics talk about how densification of the network is tedious, expensive, not possible. ..guess what (?!) FCC freeing up high frequency for 5g development! !

    Wheeler said he will begin circulating his new proposal on Thursday. If it passes, the US will be the first country to begin identifying high-frequency spectrum that can be used for 5G service, ensuring the US maintains its leadership in wireless, Wheeler said.

  • SoftBank Group investors shrugged off on Wednesday the surprise departure of the heir apparent at the Japanese internet and telecoms conglomerate, welcoming founder Masayoshi Son's decision to stay in the top seat for longer.

    Let's see how this'll play. Together with the sale and profits made, Maso's lil baby looks to be fine!

    Watching the moving avg and quick rebounds from drops, things are moving steadily in the positive direction..

    Sentiment: Buy

  • With SHEN handing over spectrum, branding under Sprint, and forking over the cost to upgrade the network AND have access to use of Sprints 2.5 spectrum. ..I honestly don't see how they're not setting things up to be boght outright by Softbank or Spint in the next 6-8 yrs. If the downgrade has a definite impact on SHEN share price, it might be a great time to pick up some shares, stash them away and wait for a lil, as they rebound and then take off with "the chance " of being acquired. Big Stockholder and CEO payout if it happens.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • No one mentions the Shen and NTLOS deal and how THAT improves Sprint coverage, increases customer count, network improvement (out of pocket cost to SHEN not Sprints). Sprint takes ownership of NTLOS low band spectrum. Not to mention how this smells of a Clearwire like setup to where "down the line" Sprint or Softbank (I personally doubt its the latter) will buyout SHEN. Since they practically set everything up under the Sprint brand and are paying for the network upgrade themselves LOL!!! Maso is not dumb, he's a freaking genius!! Attain low band spectrum, increase customer post and pre paid...not pay for network improvements...etc..freaking hell of a deal!!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Crazy to think the big V can hold onto its #1 position for much longer. With its debt to income ratio being astronomical plus the added costs due to the strike... Plus look at ATT's loss of subscribers etc!! If Sprint continues on its positive trajectory network and financially, it'll be a battle between T-mobile and Sprint. Although T-mobiles lack of spectrum and added debt in order to acquire more spectrum ($10 billion) is gonna put a lot more pressure on them and their network will be hitting a ceiling with regards to capability.

    "Verizon’s debt to equity ratio exceeds 546%, with most of its debt being long term. The company has recently paid more than $1 billion in just interest expense. The mobile carrier has generated merely $7 billion from its cash flow from operating activities which in comparison to its total debt is insignificant to say the least."

    Microwave (based on what Ive read so far to date) is the method to be used primarily. Also, I have read many (in other articles) mention the tower obligations via long term lease, but, towers are not going to be completely done away with. Towers are going to continue in the picture to be used etc. Its just a densification of the network via the small cells. Im also thinking one of the reasons (possibly) that the investment figure was lowered is because of their estimates to have the cells installed etc. Like Ive always said, "just looking at things from outside the box."
    Thanks TR.

    I have a lot of friends in Colorado and their Sprint service is great. The rural area, lets be real...I highly doubt in a "turn.around" scenario, that its a huge priority. Dense populated area are the main focus so as to showcase to the "masses" the improvement in their network and service. Is it a goal to provide the best coverage everywhere. ..sure, but not the quickest way to get the most # of wireless customers to switch over. Its ROI time and the masses, city centers, campuses are the goal at the moment.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Article definitely worth reading!

    http://blogs.barrons.com/techtraderdaily/2016/06/07/sprints-small-cell-strategy-makes-sense-says-fbr/?mod=yahoobarrons&ru=yahoo

    There is a general lack of understanding on how Sprint can achieve a 10x increase in downlink network speed at less than half the expected cost and achieve a 30% improvement in network coverage from increasing the maximum power levels in devices, which drives a 30% decrease in cost. Bottom line, existing spectrum in the 2.5 GHz frequency band should sustain Sprint’s improved performance for the next six-plus years

    I understand and hear ya and see the points you've made. I wouldnt argue them, theyre valid. Thats reason theyre pushing such aggresive promotional deals, to woo people onto their service, thus recoup/justify/ or allow their "plan of attack" to pay off. Although personally I do see more being done with Son and Calure at the helm of the ship than Hesse ever did. I think the investment in Sprint can pay off on the long run, but definitely not a short term investment.

    Thanks for the input TR, I like to try and see the entire scope from an "out of the box" perspective. You've helped with that. Have a good day!

    Sentiment: Buy

  • dragonfiel dragonfiel Jun 1, 2016 1:04 PM Flag

    A couple things I have yet to see anyone (news media etc) mention is how the cell strategy that Sprint is pursuing , according to the CFO costs 60-70% less than the tower method solely. Not to mention their use of leasing and retaining ownership, not selling, the excess spectrum they have to tap funds made avail to ensure not only timely payments of any upcoming maturities but also the densification of their network. I definitely understand and see teamreps (for example) point of view on the gutting out of Sprint by SFTBY but then again that would entail actually selling the spectrum, not leasing. And, I would think the network improvements made would not continue in such (at least as of recently) an agressive manner. Plus the demo of 5G that Sprint is offering. Also, the value of the spectrum Sprint owns will be more easily appraised with the help of the current fcc auction. At least to better estimate its value. Ive heard and read everything, from 70 million to the more widely accepted 115 billion.

    Iim just looking at the noted negatives and positives from outside the box, trying to filter through and see the actual picture. Without bias nor preconceived perspective. This can be an amazing turnaround story or a movie of the picking of a corpse by an intl entity on the cheap.

    Sentiment: Buy
