Simple answer ... Do they Not need things to write about and Pump or Bash to keep the pay checks arriving
I am not in a Box.. Sprints 2.5 should not even been tied to Verizon statement by anyone.
I guess my major problem with the 2.5 GHz. is nobody wants to give Sprint / Son time to work it in this country. Son said back in 2013 it would take a few years to not only turn the company around but to build the Network. My Guess there is cash for Sprint thru SoftBank when the need is there not when Mr. market is looking for it to pump Profits and give the Street something to talk about. Looks like we are up against a very Tight Lip run company compared to what everyone is use to .. No Leaks Here ...Proven Fact
So the Rumor you people are starting is that Sprint may Sell some 2.5 to One of the Biggest Competitors of theirs that is on Sons Hit List ? . I think Not.
Carriers Buy the Right to use Blocks of Spectrum . Our Gov. and FCC controls the Spectrum it is not something you really own you own the rights to use Patches of it but you can always sell the rights to another carrier but how the Gov. and FCC would fit into that i am Not sure now that they want to control the Big Carriers on the amount the can buy even in a Auction.
I think what you are talking about is the Spectrum CLWR had leased to other smaller carriers like wireless companies and Freedom Pop start up. I don't believe CLWR had leased Spectrum from anyone unless it was in a market theirs was not built out into. The total Spectrum holdings of Clear wire had to be made Public at time of the Sprint Merger. CLWR Company owned 2.5GHZ is what the set the Bid Price for the merger.
Back to School Boys
I would have to take that last statement ( “It just requires capital to transform the products” at Sprint. ) that when the time is right SoftBank will use the stroke of a pen to complete that turn around
I could see where many more smaller carriers could be signing agreements with Sprint to share Spectrum in order to stay alive and upgraded with newer Phones ..
Strange how nobody looked twice about 2.5GHz until Son came aboard and has already built 2.5Ghz in japan and other areas of the World.. Even china is turning to it a New Major market for U.S. companies that are years behind.
No Problem just Follow the Yellow Arrows to the Top
ok so what it Boils down to then 2.5GHz. is so good for Small Cells and major carriers going to small cells to increase their Spectrum so to speak seems to me sprint is in the best position then any carrier and with new Phones with 2.5GHz that you are required to trade your old phone in on for any lower cost plan or upgrade Points straight to Sprint 2.5GHz
people forget WiFi ?. Most newer Phones support WiFi not like yrs. back and switch to WiFi automatic and a person spends most of their time near a WiFi connection being at the office home computer or any other place that is in range of a Hot Spot .That is why even TMUS has made such a big deal over WiFi now not like the past when CLWR was alive.
I understand 2.5GHz is being used in more countries something the U.S. lacks like many other things behind asia
well Whiggs if you was any smarter you would know nobody owns Spectrum . They buy for the right to use it.
Spectrum air waves owned U.S. Gov. and controlled by FCC
I am kinda thinking them 27 Spectrum Share Agreements that Sprint has with smaller carriers and maybe more by now just may have given Sprint the Spectrum they needed in markets much cheaper then going to a Auction and then spending billions more putting it to use.
I agree there MAY be a cost involved but I feel it is a much lower one then Buying Spectrum and the cost of building it from scratch . Then again it could just be a even swap agreement I share yours here you share ours there and that makes even more sense .
So far all we have is Analyst guessing and use the the Press to cover their Next Paycheck . I may want to add hedge Fund managers to that statement but then again as they need to make a Paycheck also. Son has shown he is Not afraid of Partner Agreements dealing in wireless such as the ones with the smaller carriers and even Dish and Now with TMUS owner stated they would willing to do a Partnership with the right party that also could leave the Door Open to Sprint / Son. has anyone taken Note that Pinky is Not bashing Sprint every day as in the pass? I find that interesting.
Yes and shortly after Son came along and made a offer . Do you think this was just something that Popped up over night and the BOD of Sprint did not know or talked to Son and that could have been the reason the BOD called off the Merger at the last minute ?.
Not to mention Sprint would need to work two different networks once again and the Red Head would have put Sprint back in the same hole they crawled out of.
Once people wake up and understand Son wanted the 2.5GHz that he fine tuned to work very well in Japan and could do the Same in the U.S. Market . The proof to that statement is that after the MPC / TMUS merger Son could have taken them over ( TMUS / PCS ) correct other then One major thing stood in his way they had NO 2.5GHz. you know the same Spectrum Dish was after when he Bid for both Sprint and CLWR.
Crazy how some people on this board can live under a Rock
Greek do you really take this people serious or even info that is posted to any Board?. I would have to say you are very foolish if you do as the Market is No more then a Poker Game and it all depends when your card falls and what you have Held and what you Discarded.
One must remember others here do not pay for your Mistakes or take Profits when you do..
In short everyone here is a Keyboard Millionaire Flipping burgers after Classes
How can I lose something that was Gifted to me by Son the 1st time around?. The difference between me and you I bank 40% profits and trade 60% profits off any stock and I still have my . I have not used my cash for over 30 years.
So to Sum it up once again Duh ....if i was to cash out and leave the market b right Now i would be gaining all profits that was invested.
It is much the same as what companies do use others money not yours. I think they call it DEBT. something most all have So more Some less.
Oh I see..I am not only so happy for you but I am so sorry that I have spoken to another Keyboard Millionaire ....
Please forgive me
Worked the 1st time around for me holding before the merger in the old days why not know Fool.
Son could get his $7 back in a Heart Beat from anyone if he wanted to Walk so really there isn't a large risk loss here at all now is there.
let us Sum it up. $7 - $3.30 = $3.70 ( Not a bad profit ) I used $7 as that what Dish was willing to pay without CLWR.
So tell me do you trade stock to make Money or just run your Finger lips.
My guess is this daily penny players are beating themselves over the head to turn a Dollar.
But I guess I should be very Happy they gave me a chance to Double Down a few times over on my $5.60 share Price since New Sprint went Public after the merger. Now as Son advances through his time frame Building Sprint to meet his Vision in the future ( with Tight Lips I may add ) all news released by Sprint so far has showed improvements and Partnership Agreements that is a major improvement over the past years in such a short time frame.
Ladies and Gentlemen Please fasten your Seat Belts sit back and enjoy your ride to the Top.
I for one feel there will be a Major Press Release by Sprint on a Major Play Nobody even thought of.
One I keep thinking of is a Old Family reunion between Sprint / Google and Comcast Two of the Older Major investors in the Clearwire days. Why? Both are in need of the Network Son has been putting together that CLWR was unable to finish due to lack of Money. Now did Dish see this and was it the reason behind him looking to take out Sprint / CLWR when Son stepped into the Picture.
