    T-Mobile has vastly improved in the last couple of years. Sprint...not so much.

    Agreed, but wouldent acquisition of tmobile (which has improved) be counted as improvment? So at least they are trying.

    Well I'd imagine it would take some time to get the two networks to be compatible or at least to get phones to take advantage of the existing ones. If it were a merger maybe it wouldn't be that bad, but I think a buyout would be a step backwards.

    I seriously doubt it, not with Sprint complaining that it can't cut its plans any further because they need to spend on their network (which frankly they do).

    I would Leave T-mobile and go back to AT&T which I had no problems other then it was more expensive but rather deal with AT&T prices then Sprint

    But if they bought tmobile, wouldent they have then solved their network issues? And become gsm.

    They wouldn't suddenly abandon CDMA. They have put in quite a bit of work and money into that...

    Not at all. The two carriers use two completely different sets of bands for LTE, and their phones don't support each other's LTE bands anyway. THe only band they share is the PCS band, and frankly they both have about the same coverage in the same areas in that band. T-Mobile devices can't see ESMR or BRS, and Sprint's devices don't all support AWS or Band 12. That's not even getting into the part where the 3.XG services (and all voice outside of VoLTE) are completely and totally incompatible with each other (CDMA vs GSM and all).

    It would take a massive time and capital investment to merge the two networks, and likely half of each one would be dropped or divested. Including some of those overlapping PCS licenses.

    Sprint didn't need to acquire T-Mobile to become disruptive. That was hogwash.

    Sprint isn't merging.... They're going the route of a new CEO.

    I hope he is more aggressive with the network plans.

    Not so much? I think Sprint is a sinking ship. That desperately needs a change
    At the top. I'm glad they replaced Hesse.
    Hopefully, the new ceo will breath new life with fresh ideas into Sprint.
