Lawmakers: T-Mobile-Sprint merger better help rural users
I'm a skeptic, alright!
I guess I may ask both of you, Mr. [UNKNOWN] and Mr. [UNKNOWN].
When you use your maps, you're saying it's 96 percent coverage?
These maps, A bogus.
They just don't work, so, you're gonna redo your mapping, so that, what we're talking about is apples and apples, and not apples and oranges, briefly.
I'll take the answer.
Today, Sprint has a very limited coverage, and we rely mainly on AT&T and Verizon to be roaming partners outside our court zone.
So we're basically replicating what the maps of AT&T and Verizon.
Are they no good?
These are no good.
These are phoney maps.
But the problem that we have today is a very serious problem.
The two spectrum holders have been AT&T and Verizon and they have failed to serve America The commitment that we're making is to make a nationwide coverage.
Because we just cut 600 megahertz just a couple of years ago, and we're going to [UNKNOWN] as fast as we can.
Well, if you are sitting where I am and getting calls and getting [UNKNOWN] who have a map that says they've got fantastic service and they can't get a dial tone, You'd share my skepticism, this is a big deal.
Sir, your concerns are very real, and the commitments in the filings that we made are about the network we'll create, and we have a strong commitment to cover of rural america.
Chairman, I'd like to submit to the record, these documents I refer to
without objection so ordered.
