Really, you want to go there? How's that $7.5M patent infringement loss to Comcast treating you?
TMUS may have to fork up some of its profit, but 90% of a profit is better than not making one at all because you have no customers. If Son didn't want to be associated with garbage he'd get rid of Sprint; he already started by taking out the Hesse-scented trash, and now he's moving on to the no-name employees.
Something always gets leaked early, so I'm sure the talking heads will start... talking, soon. But those are the official dates of the earnings announcements for each company.
Stock price is up 3.26%, double the performance of Sprint which is up 1.16%. At this point, beating Sprint is nothing new and doesn't warrant headlines. I'd imagine the next week will be quiet, until next Tuesday and Wednesday when the S and TMUS earnings reports comes out, respectively.
No, Sprint just has the problem of nobody paying to use its network. A minor detail, nothing to worry about. I'm sure Sprint will use one of its many other revenue streams to offset that loss. What, it doesn't have any? Hmm.
Those "moves" include laying off employees the company can't afford to keep. Santa Claure just ordered 452 lumps of coal to the Kansas office. Do you think falling to last place in the market will help attract customers during the holiday season?
The deposit is simply insurance against the loss or theft of the router, you don't ever have to pay another cent to use it. You even get the deposit back if/when you return the router. And whether or not the other carriers COULD enable wifi calling is irrelevant, because they DON'T.
And personally, I do use the best provider that offers the best coverage and speed; I use Verizon. Sprint seems to think it can convince customers to come back by claiming to be a mix of both quality and value, when the reality is they are neither. The subscriber numbers speak for themselves- Claure and Mellow Yellow aren't fooling anyone.
So, it'd be better to spend the same amount on a carrier that offers exactly NOTHING when there isn't cell coverage? I don't know about you, but I'd prefer having the ability to make a call from 90% of the places I go to the possibility of using Jimmy Jo-Bob's Third Party Service if I ever go hours away from civilization. Kind of makes you wonder why Sprint is spending so much money to patch together low quality coverage in areas that people don't go. I suppose if nobody ever uses that service, nobody will complain about how terrible it is.
That's exactly the idea- sit in the coffee shop and enjoy your phone. Or at home, or at work, or any other store you go to, or a friend's house. It is not, nor was it ever intended to be used "past the doors or windows". For everything else, that's why they're continuing to build out the network. It's really not a complicated concept. Sure, it's a short-term "band aid", but it doesn't cost anything, so what's the problem?
Again, you're demonstrating a lack of comprehension. The routers do not "boost any signal". They replace your current wifi router and guarantee perfect reception in the place most people spend the majority of their time. And if you think public wifi networks are "few and far between" you must not go... anywhere... ever. Nearly every commercial establishment has one. Then again, you seem to be enamored with Sprint's partnership with the tiny third party regional carriers, so maybe you don't live in a populated area.
Sprint lost 24% of its value from January to February, and another 26% of its value from July to August 6, and still hasn't recovered. No matter how you slice it Sprint is having a worse year than TMUS. Sorry, bitter S longs.
That, and the fact that while DT owns enough of TMUS to decide to sell it, the remaining investors could take legal action if they believe the sale isn't in the best interest of the company- which a simple cash grab and sellout to someone like Iliad certainly would not be.
Are you being serious? Sometimes it's hard to tell. Nobody is going to try to connect to a random stranger's locked wifi network to make a call. They're going to use the wide-open public networks, or their own wifi that they will obviously have the password to. We've been over this before, but it's fairly obvious that you're just trying to hate on a free feature that you don't fully understand.
Wow, you got the attention of all four of Beans' accounts with that post. The report on the 29th should be a good one.
If you're going to call someone's comments "incomprehensible gibberish", you should probably spell it correctly.
TMUS is down ~20% for the year. Sprint is down over 40%. Claure's holiday gift to Sprint will be another 10-20% drop and more layoffs as they're bypassed by TMUS.
