Having spectrum and building it out are two entirely different things. DISH has a pretty good wad of wireless spectrum but it has only been used experimentally.T-Mobile and Sprint together will have more spectrum than Both the big boys and will be stronger.
Chances are pretty good that the various carriers are already sharing towers. If they're going to use some of the new frequencies, they may need to add new antenna setups.The company’s that own the towers are taking a hit now because with the merger they won’t need duplicate areas.
Probably unchanged. The jumpers would have stayed with third party resellers of AT&T and Verizon service. The only thing that T-mobile forced is the return of unlimited Internet.Where do you think ATT and Verizon prices and service would be today if T-Mobile hadn’t shaken the tree?
Att and Verizon are too busy writing the 5g standard to keep people from switching carriersYeah this is a good thing it will let them both utilize somethings that one could do that the other could not plus it will make them a stronger competitor as well. But it would not surprise me know if AT&T and Verizon look at doing something one day. AT&T I think is having some regrets getting Direct TV it will take them awhile to recoup the money they used to buy them..
As the merged company will still have a smaller market share than either AT&T or Verizon, zero chance that will happen. Hard to argue that third largest of something is too big, not isn't it?
