in my best Vulcan voice: Your logic is flawed, Tmobile has the worst network according to Rootmetrics: http://recode.net/2015/02/09/ sprint-is-no-longer-the-worst-network-says-ro otmetrics-study/ They are also the cheapest or tied for cheapest at any point of the top 4. I recently put someone from ATT on a cut your bill in half plan 2 phones 10GB for $71.

trade your prev carrier phone in, provide most recent bill. Sprint will match data and then take your normal bill amount and split it in half. You have to purchase your sprint devices with a lease or easy pay installments

call Sprint ask them to use a special tool (I cannot name it since I work for them and its proprietary.) The tool will usually tell if you are getting the 800MHZ frequency within the next 3 months, that will cure your in home problems. I have driven from TN to FL and not lost connection at all, and 20MBS+ speed 80% of the trip.

granted they are behind due to cash issues and playing catch up, I travelled 600+ miles from TN to FL and had connectivity on LTE with no drops (Except small portion of GA in the middle of nowhere) and could pull 20+MBPS and never had a voice drop period....to me thats good, i have no issues in TN where I live either

Do you all even know this guys past???? If he says it, it will happen. He is near God status in Japan for his wireless abilites and took an ailing last place provider, combined some companies and dominates Japans market. The same principle can work here, its all finance and economics for him. And yes he has a huge ego, just look at the house he bought in silicon valley :)

I hope it goes through......the new vision network can do GSM with a simple hotspot of a card in each basestation. The new chairman became number 1 in Japan by doing this very strategy

Son is a rockstar in Japan, he has a history of combining companies and becoming number 1. That is why he is trying this here. Sprints new basestations can handle new network technologies with a swap of a hardware card.

I see some El Paso 4G towers, they are in the midst of upgrades now. Sprint isnt having problems doing LTE...it just takes time and tuning. They are doing a 3-5 project in 18 months. Then have to do 800MHZ and spark. It takes a while to covert backhaul, zoing permits, building permits, contractors, weather. Verizon gets 2GB down in NY City...but you dont hear people complaining...talked with someone in tampa yesterday said they barely can get a AT&T ...

some has already....but I want to say thats in the back phase of NW. to Sprints benefit the Tmobile deal is now more of a softbank purchase and them squeezing the 2 companies together.....and softbank has a history of doing this very well in japan. Also spark has actually been in the works for a long time, not something new they just thought of.......I am assuming they put it out to test it more than anything, it may be ...

I am sure they are working on it, the project is slated to be completed on the 1.9GHZ LTE by late summer (all towers in network) this year then the 800MHZ upgrade starts....but those are not as involved as network vision now

I just travelled from TN to FL last week. LTE was great everywhere. Slowest speed down I saw was 9.52mbps and fastest 23mbps. I average 16-20. I tested using G2 in the following locales. Asheville, NC Columbia SC Savannah GA Jacksonville FL now I had LTE for about 80% of the trip. Parts of SC and mountains in NC didnt have LTE. I had 1 dropped call in the appalachian mountains. I was 9 miles off the shore in Jacksonville pulling 9mbps LTE. ...

NW is about 50% done. bear in mind though when they say a city now is lit up on LTE, they launch before that city is 100% done. My city has it and we are at 60% completion. My area works like a charm on NW but we are smaller tri city area of about 180K people

not all LTE areas are on the map yet. I have LTE and the map says I dont have sprint coverage period. There is a tool they use to check towers to see if and when they are LTE......maybe thats the route to go

Sorry to hear of your issues, could it be a problem penetrating your building? Do your speeds increase outside the building? When I passes through Charlotte as I live 3 hours east of there I got pretty good speeds?
