Mike Sievert

And we've the were not recent seen history, agencies the the John's examples, where, expert has in a closed, at have to the in anywhere now deal where not ultimately agencies weighed have way point, federal there level. objections even state if

So, the support for now that have federal deal. we is a major this milestone fact major,

John Legere

are been competition company. are jobs new And today, buildout going will the But back The to not prices going messages important day go and XX. have up, that it Drew. time constituents the this to every to up cover go hasn’t are certainly, in will to the time we're on get comprehensive be up, to go and the will

And I'm the as going gone long states may and the way the is. So, deal have alleviating Was be sharing real this sharing core curious to I the to us DISH It for no to to get concerns network network how the redline have. a that is case biggest a that But there's you? seems deal. that issue why?

– yes, second was that question. that so So, the Thanks.

Braxton Carter

Jonathan. start me Let

off. to you of get performing it what's our the the and So, bottom one the just it's, And better day. at line, results, always decrease our the truly for number one continues seeing for fortify network see in It's outstanding. is And Neville year-over-year. churn the look every in rollout first, we're and churning network. have that capital is intensity, really you reason number driver and just XXX, to team his where our are amazing And can just massive

on as happen into points the of and very, of for do But and that Un-carrier of bode Team all of the and churn apply And addressing that's those the with quality down we're at service pain the to you how evolution well in very service we any continue going we focused environment. a in level the cutting-edge driving America. our I there Experts. the are the factors marketing customer This that is look And very mean, is then you marketplace. certainly, goodness. innovative terminal future

Jonathan Chaplin

can it So, Braxton? lower, go

Braxton Carter

the actual to give We're churn not going guidance.

Matt Staneff

when among finally the on seeing We on XXX-rollout, a on all on our churn. best would don't think these best penetration the of customer what the same as the just thing network pricing guide the there, you we have out have we Braxton's, best getting for the goods put be amount in best of together customers' and value, we’re the of hands. is the best occurring that, of And heels that meaning, that's at I I'll knew ones most you the and that realization but service fundamentally reiterate phones bar churn, on the we the that other the

we're add not we Braxton's into and as is markets, these others expand and continue are as not we to I'll core. in caveat strong that new areas new as – the it's The to

And on little forward. the upward see newer that as in we move so, to of bit you a pressure areas can expect

against we're the of in existing our stabilize to base. plan what so, And working we're kind seeing growth

John Legere

somewhere Let muster possible human of me if moment a can – a my moment it I humility, in add being.

I that it's variables to this of set we note me the most being to churn be time. see. ahead that on where we where we'd that of think is are we be it's thought could a hand, Not driven excites But slightly were better. it getting by other are shocked only at with what important about even

deployment So, that's of have network the quality better. and our significant and we network knew would that get impact, better the a to going and

significant was and on going churn, business retail Team the And Promoter has. impact care of we just things the stores knew of We relationship three have know to that our and a our getting side, it our experience that off-the-charts Experts are those customers but that positive. and Net have, in All Score is better. not

they lead have that levels level levels to churn stay never could gone go that of to to fact people suggest us the that lead or that So, that even before. churn impress places they that

Mike Sievert

Well, thrilled with think behind right, That's said. about math John the math what covered XXX. behind that, now the just great. We're XXX that there's million

thrilled yet phones is means our potential have that not yet. two-thirds million but On there's and than there. means our customers the it XX covered by more have half XXX, that other that hand, don't We're network branded of XXX,

you so, experience. And to continues there's value the once the unfold here as it with potential combine and this exciting customer

But of Whether this transaction, real, things clear. would DISH that. on make be be that do at stronger, are full, from their taken just end nothing and wireless company Let's those another the facilities-based item can is should they a own them away viable, somehow.
