Wind is a problem in your network is slow you should be able lowly exit I'll be back when things are better the case -- I'm I'll make this quick. Sprint is a pile of spectrum. Waiting to be turned into a capability. Right now they're network it's completely harmony high medium and low and they keep talking about parking our dogs while we re decorate.
