    Sprint Takes a Beating in Wake of Legere Comments on Network, CapEx

    T-Mobile fans got to love how T-Mobile CEO John Legere can damage his competitors. John Legere is one of the best CEO in the nation and has proved he is a marketing genus that has in just a years just re-invented the Cell Networks business. No wonder that fans of the other networks are whining.

    Spring has cut their Maintenance and Network upgrades to the bone. Sprint is falling behind when they aren't even close to the other three. Sprints Marcelo Claure knowledge is building a cell phone distribution company not a Cell Network. Sprint needs to sell some of their un-used spectrum to keep build up their network. Really anyone think when 5G is here that Sprint will be ready when the other three networks are rolling it out?

    you all r asleep at the wheel -

    http://www.howardforums.com/showthre...9#post16691019

    sure they can cut back on capex, but it doesn't mean for the worst -

    **In announcing plans to renew a portion of its network management agreement with Ericsson, Sprint said it would take on some employees from the vendor**

    & guess what Erricson's networking involve? **THIS** ..

    "..But, Vestberg added, most carriers will eventually make the move since SDN and NFV promise to lower carriers' overall network expenses.And Vestberg argued that Ericsson is well positioned to help transition operators into the virtualized world.

    "Right now all the products we have coming out are virtualized," he said, noting a few exceptions on the radio side of the company's product portfolio. He said Ericsson's OSS, routers, packet core, gateways and other products can now all can be purchased virtualized. "We're very well positioned," he said..."
    (all carriers in the US even tmobile talked of sdn)..

    from - Ericsson CEO: Almost all our products are already virtualized, but industry moving slowly to SDN, NFV

    Softbank's working with erricsson -

    **SoftBank deploys Ericsson virtual MME and Ericsson Cloud Platform**

    how much could virtualizing help lower a carrier's capex?

    **Building Business Benefits of NFV**


    tell me..

    He's a politician wireless. Loud and loves the opportunity to bad mouth childishly. He backtracks on what he promises, very slowly so the blinded don't notice.

    That's great for their customers. Legere runs things so efficiently they can afford to charge their customers less. Let the customers of other companies keep paying more!

    Well that's nice in the sprint front John....but why didn't you discuss how your own companies profits have fell in the last 2 quarters, are down from last year's numbers, and your growth seems to be slowing as evident by declining growth numbers over last year? John why are your postpaid projections for this year only 3.2 to 3.6 million adds when last year you had 4.5 million adds? This is down from 4.9 million adds Is 2014. why is your growth slowing? Is your service worse this year? What gives there? If you continue to insist you are the standard bearer in services offered why is your growth slowing instead of building? Did you peak in 2014 and we are just going to continue to see a decline in growth and earnings year by year? You say your goal is to catch att, but with growth declining every year, how do you fully intend to pull that off? While att's postpaid business is staying relatively steady, an add of 100,000 one quarter a loss of 100,000 the next, their prepaid adds are starting to grow and are on an uphill climb, not slowing. Or would you rather just sit and talk about what sprints doing? That's prolly easier right john?


    Or how bout this john, since you pride yourself on prepaid so much, why were prepaid add number drastically lower last quarter? You barely beat out cricket wireless in adds, your prepaid churn rate actually rose for the first time in 3 quarters. what's happening on that front John? Or would you just rather not talk about that and discuss what sprint is doing? I guess it's easier to point fingers than to address yourself right john? That's like the CEO of Verizon doing his conference call and just talking about what att is up to.

    Let's not fool ourselves wallsteet didn't go ape crap over tmobiles numbers either. Stock only rose 1.46℅ thats not newsworthy at all. So its not like T-Mobile themselves blew away investors to begin with. So john, since sprint is an awful mess, why is their stock crushing yours in performance over the last year and why or how did you manage to lose postpaid customers to them last quarter? Any comment? Or do you just want to talk about everyone else so nobody asks these questions about tmobile....you know....the company you run.

    It's bad to have unprofitable customers. Carriers find other ways to make money up somehow such as SIM and upgrade fees.

    T-Mobile has profitable customers. Why don't you save that lecture for Sprint who lost over $300 million last quarter. Lecture them about unprofitable customers.

    Now now, I didn't say Spint had the most sound business plan.. They do have more profitable customers in terms of ARPU/ABPU.. However we do know that will not offset the Debt Sprint has on their plate.

    Ahem. Perhaps I missed it, but when was the last time Sprint actually turned a profit?

    What does sprint turning a profit have to do with the questions I asked about tmobile? Why is everybody obsessed with what sprint is doing? Who cares what sprint is doing. So ahem....do you wish to answer the questions I asked about tmobile? Or do you just want to divert them like john did and talk about sprint? Because for a carrier that's "dead in the water and not doing anything" it sure does seem like there is a lot of attention being paid to them. So any answers? Unless you are suggesting that sprint not turning a profit has caused tmobiles postpaid and prepaid growth to slow drastically, is the cause of earnings lowering, is the cause of prepaid churn rising, is their crown jewel plan to catch att even with slowing growth in both the prepaid and postpaid markets, is the reason that they lost customers to sprint last quarter, are you suggesting the answers to all those are sprint not turning a profit? Because that makes no sense....but hey why answer tough questions about tmobile. Look at sprint instead.
