Is the new T-Mobile worth switching to? (The Daily Charge, 7/29/2019)

Tech Industry
Today on the Daily Charge, 5G is everywhere, maybe even on the next iPhone. Apple's unveiling their quarterly earnings and maybe even a product lineup, and the Justice Department blesses the T-Mobile Sprint merger. [MUSIC] Good morning, welcome to CNET's Daily Charge, it's Monday, July 29th. I'm Roger Cheng. I'm Alfred Ang. Let's look at today's headlines. Noise around 5G is everywhere with networks and Android phones constantly launching with the next generation technology. But you won't see a 5G iPhone quite yet. Now there's word from analysts and Apple leaker Michiko that all three of 2020 iPhones will come packed with 5G, Excited offer? No because I assume the five G stands for five grand. [LAUGH] Have you seen iPhones getting much more pop, expensive. Yeap. They're probably gonna charge a hefty fee for that wasn't a Galaxy S Thats ten 5G version also way more expensive. Yes, it was like an extra hundred $200 more. Keep in mind though and what I like about this is the rumor points to all three iPhones getting five G's, meaning that the sort of the standard technology as opposed to like a 5g verint that's way more expensive If I wait five years from now that where everything is a 5g variant and not, you know, way more expensive We are five years from now for sure but it's nice that in I guess Apple's first round of five your iPhone they'll all get. Reportedly. Reportedly. You're right. Yes. But Yes reportedly they'll all have fun. All right speaking of Apple the company is set to post its fiscal third quarter earnings results tomorrow. Well we'll be hearing about the 2020 iPhones. We should hopefully get some hints about this years upcoming line up. This is gonna be like eight cameras, right. [LAUGH] Like that's the biggest hailing point on it. We are hearing rumors of three cameras in this relaly large lack box that sits on the back of your iPhone which I don't know, I feel like Steve Jobs would like kind of turnover [UNKNOWN] seeing like how aesthetically displeasing this [UNKNOWN] [UNKNOWN] aren't there anymore- Right, he's probably checked out. Yeah, I predict that all of the new stuff will just be even more colors, I mean that seems to do really well for them. [UNKNOWN] that's iPhone 10R had more colors and seem to be pretty good fit for them. Great feature. All right, now, for our main story T Mobile sprint cleared a big hurdle after the Justice Department blessed to scale. The companies were able to achieve this by getting Dish Network involved. The satellite TV company will spend $5 billion on sprint prepaid business and spectrum which ablaze will, Will catapulted into the wireless business.>> This is a joke right? Like this dish network like really, I'm betting that I'm not gonna be able to call my friends when it's like cloudy or raining out on this.>> So keep in mind what's happening is dish is basically getting access to the T Mobile sprint network. They're getting that prepaid business so their game boost Virgin Mobile and sprint prepaid. And for a while, they'll be able to ride on Sprint and T-Mobile's network while they build out their own one. I get that Justice Department's concern about this when the merger was first being proposed where they said it could create lack of [UNKNOWN] Competition is Dish Network and these networks really a viable competition? A network just based off pre-paid networks. I think that's the million dollar question. T-Mobile CEO John Ledger was on the call earlier on friday where he said Emphatically I think three or four times called dish a credible competitor. But there are a lot of skeptics about this. Yeah, it almost seems like the guy who has the most benefit off of this will just say anything to get it to the pass through. And yes, dish has four years hoarded spectrum radio frequencies that are necessary to build a wireless network. But they haven't done anything with it. Technically speaking, they were suppose to build a wireless network by next year. As a result of this whole deal, they actually got the extension, they got the government to extend their deadline to 2023. So yeah, there are a lot Lot of folks who go dish, am I a really serious as a wireless competitor? And what does this mean for like T Mobile Tuesday's, if this merger goes through. Am I still getting all that free stuff for? T Mobile Tuesday's most likely will still remain and I got the sense that T Mobile is gonna rock the boat too much in mind. There's already a three year price lock that they put in as a guarantee for a contingent for the steel to go through. So imagine for TMobile customers not a lot of changes for sprint customers though it's probably gonna be a lot of incentive to move over Yeah that three year price like seems like an interesting you know condition that they had but I mean who's to say that you know after three years like those price will will just skyrocket after that That's a really good point. I think all bets are off after those Those next three years, first three years and what they didn't really answer is whether or not that price lock applied to sprint services which are more which are cheaper than T Mobile. So my guess is like Sprint customers may end up having to pay a lot more but get up to that T Mobile level. Cool, Dish Network thank you. The deal charger Roger Chang. [UNKNOWN]. I will earn 5 bucks for doing that now. [MUSIC]
