I don't know if this is related:

https://www.tmonews.com/2017/10/t-mobile...ion-plans/

"Both T-Mobile and Sprint’s earnings announcements have come and gone without any peep of a merger, but new reports say that work on the deal is ongoing.

First up, a report claims that T-Mobile and Sprint as well as parent companies Deutsche Telekom and SoftBank are still hammering out the details of a merger. There’s no finalized deal, say sources speaking to the Wall Street Journal, but the broad outlines have reportedly been settled. That includes an all-stock deal that’ll see DT have control over the combined company, John Legere running it, and SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son and DT CEO Tim Höttges being co-chairmen of the board.

It’s said that there will be no cash breakup fee in this merger. Instead, T-Mobile will have to give Sprint an “attractive roaming deal” if the merger is blocked by regulators.

The companies involved are reportedly working out the business and network integration plans of the deal as well as prepping arguments for any antitrust scrutiny that may come from the government. The deal could be announced within the next few weeks, say the sources of this report, though it’s still possible that the whole deal could fall apart.
be signed once a final deal has been agreed upon.

It’s rumored that T-Mobile and Sprint have tentatively agreed on a range for a stock ratio exchange that’ll offer Sprint a premium to where it’s shares are currently trading. The deal could result in SoftBank and other Sprint shareholders holding nearly 40 percent of the combined company.

Finally, it’s said that T-Mobile and Sprint are nearly finished performing due diligence on each other. It echoes the other report in saying that the two companies are now working on a business plan and an integration strategy for the combined entity."

A deal between them would give better coverage too both but still not as good as Verizon or AT&T. Sprint roaming on T-Mobile would be interesting considering that they are on different types on network. T- Mobile is GSM, Sprint is CDMA.

From what I have gathered is 4GC lost their non profit status required to participate in the program. They were more expensive than say PC's for people and they did not require income verification to show they were providing a service to the poor as the program is intended. So either the IRS or more likely the parent organization Mobile Beacon pulled the plug.

As for me, I do qualify for the PC's for people plan. I called today to check on what I needed to prove it and found out they have a office here in Denver. Just like the 4GC hotspot it is only LTE but the service will only be $120 a year instead of $168. I will also have to buy their horspot at $74.

There are other differences too. 4GC offered hotspots that used all of the bands and said while it was listed as a 30g plan, they said it would never be subjected to network management. This is not true for the PC's for people plans. They have the same type of network management as other unlimited plans. They must think that network management sounds nicer than throttled or Prioritized.

One last note on 4GC. A person is reporting that they called them during the website re-do and was sold a hotspot and plan offline. Either it was a rotten thing to do or they really thought they were going to be able to continue.

There was a talk on how it would be similar to when T-Mobile took over MetroPCS. MetroPCS was CDMA. They left it alone for awhile, during transition period where they switch the bands from CDMA to GSM. After 2 years or so, they set a deadline and switched everyone over to GSM. I'm guessing similar thing will happen. So over time, you'd have to buy a GSM device.

I just bought a used Sprint smart phone from a lady in Denver for $30 and it works great! I now have a good Sprint phone and a pay-as-you-go low end plan with a MVNO. I am in the process of preparing to dump my home land-line with C.L. and replace it with Cell Phone(s). That way I can keep my DSL ISP with CL for a while so that I continue to get internet. One step at a time as I get used to using cellular instead of land-line. You are way, way ahead of me in terms of  using cell phones, hot-spots, unlimited data etc. but I am reading your posts and learning as I go. 
Thanks for all your communication on this forum!

Folks, this is just a friendly reminder that many of us have limited bandwidth so we ask that you carefully trim any quotes you include to the bare minimum. When you are reading on a phone, and you have to read the same post twice to get a new comment, it can be frustrating--especially if there are pictures!

Be kind and trim!! Smile

I am glad it helps.

Sprint in Denver and many metro areas is great. Not only are there many towers, there is also three LTE bands one of which can get 56 Mbps on its own. Add to that the ability to use C.A., connecting to multiple towers at once and you either get super high speeds or can stream when you device shows one bar of signal. Out and about you are likely to have at least 3G and stay connected, not everywhere but in places you would not expect it.

I wanted to report that the hotspot that was suppose to shut down on my birthday (the 30th) is still going. I am going to find some one in this group to use it until it does shut off. Might as well as I have a different unlimited Sprint hotspot to take its place already.

One difference in Ehrenberg this year is that I do have Sprint LTE out here for those two hotspots to connect to.

Jim, Did you find someone in Denver to take your Sprint Hotspot, the one you no longer need?  I just saw your post today. Anyway, I live in Aurora. It would be worth a try. I am new to the idea of an unlimited hotspot and have been reading your posts about the Verizon, AT&T and now the Sprint.
