Today, the Rural Wireless Association joined with seven other public interest and consumer advocacy groups to ask the FCC to preserve the Sprint CDMA network acquired by T-Mobile. Rural customers are dependent on the Sprint CDMA network when traveling outside of their home network. T-Mobile has begun shutting down portions of the Sprint CDMA network which means rural customers cannot use their devices when away from home. This is especially problematic during the pandemic when it is more difficult for rural providers to upgrade their networks to stay in lockstep with T-Mobile. The letter also addresses the impact on DISH’s Boost customers and asks the FCC to weigh in on the dilemma.
