Re: Sprint and T-Mobile
Agreed, but AT&T still needs more mmWave after Fibertower, see:

Re: Sprint and T-Mobile
I think it is pretty safe to assume that Verizon will land STRP's trove of 39 ghz and ATT will land Fibertower's trove of 24 and 39 ghz. Trump to Pai to FCC paving the way for ATT and Verizon to really push a true 5G and provide some serious octane for the economy.

Re: Sprint and T-Mobile
At the moment, at least, only Verizon has the access to 28GHz licenses to do any significant high-band 5G deployment.

Sprint and T-Mobile
Sprint and T-Mobile don't have the cash flow, customer base, or resources to go 5G so you will get some type of 4.3...4.4G hodge podge from them. ATT and Verizon have the resources(Cash, Infrastructure, and Customer Base) to deliver that 5G experience being touted. While the world is going the capacity route Sprint, Tmobile, and Dish are out there grabbing coverage/access spectrum. The world is moving to throughput and Sprint/Tmobile are years and tens of $$$ billions behind. Similar to going HSPA+ / Wimax that enabled Verizon who went full bore on LTE to get way out in front of everyone. AT&T isn't going to make that mistake again but Sprint and Tmobile just don't have the fire power.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial and often most challenging is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company Tribold from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
