    Galaxy S9 Series user thread

    I am not at all a tech like everyone on this forum I just learn what I can from everyone at least what I can understand. I wonder if I try blocking whatever band is giving me these speeds maybe that would help. Today I went to Sprint Corp store and talked them into giving me a new SIM card it helped a little on download (not much) but not at all on my upload. How can I tell what band I am on maybe I can try forcing it to use a different band. I am just grasping at straws now because it is functional but not $800 functional

    I find it hard to bench under 20Mbps on the DL, that's on 10x10 B25. Usually average 60Mbps on B41 at least.

    OK I understand. If I’m not mistaken the fifth generation standards won’t be rolled out until 2020.

    I'm saying that, given that LTE can do so already, doing so with 5G should be a cakewalk.

    So what your saying is that 5G technology can replace some of this at a reasonable price?

    Satellite is less outdated than you think. ViaSat has 100 Mbps plans, albeit with a 150 GB soft cap. 50 Mbps is available for a relatively reasonable price, depending on area. Of course, there's still the speed-of-light problem. With that said, 25/3 with a 160GB cap, particularly if it's a soft cap, for like $60/mo,, would be straightforward to sling via 2.5 GHz 5G, and if advertised at all would give Sprint probablh 80% market share in anywhere that can't get cable or fiber. The number of places that can hit those speeds over DSL that can't get cable or fiber is low enough that you don't really have to worry about those folks (basically only rural telephone companies/co-ops do that).

    Hello Everyone This is now my Favorite Forum I have learned more on this forum then any other. I would like to see if anyone would be able to help me with my new Sprint Galaxy S9+. It is Factory unlocked on the sprint network. I am in the Dallas Tx area and ever since upgrading to the S9 I get horrible network speeds. My download is never good and my upload is almost nonexistent. I have been to 3 sprint corp. stores as well as many hours on the line with sprint CS nothing has worked. The Tech at the corp repair store told me it was my APN and to contact Samsung. (because he was using APN2 EHRPD and I was using APN LTE). But from this forum I have learned how to switch that and it didn't help at all. Any suggestions or feedback would be great thanks again. See attachments for more info

    The only work-around I can think of is if you buy the T-Mobile version and hope that Sprint allows it on its network. The phone would then roam on T-Mobile for voice and possible LTE if band 41 is not available.

    I hate when they brag about their 2.5.

    They're still bragging about 2.5 GHz. Although in that article he does say that 5G will be better with T-Mobile in that they can leverage low, mid and higher bands for an ubiquitous 5G experience.

    Nope that never happens to me. It's actually the most consistent Galaxy device I have ever owned.

    https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/sprint-cto-explains-how-it-plans-to-win-5g-race I just find it kinda strange that when Sprint has any network based press releases that they don't really mention too much about the merger and how it will "help." Whereas T-Mobile just about every press release there is a spill about how great the merger is going to be and what it will accomplish. I would have assumed that Sprint would be hitting the pavement just as hard about the merger. It's like Sprint is keeping somewhat of a distance and speaks on the merger when asked and is not putting all there eggs in one basket again.

    As a side effect of the proposed merger, FreedomPop is creating the Unreal MVNO taking advantage of the regulatory environment created by the mergers in extracting pricing concessions. They clame to offer $15/mo unlimited service that is competitive with post paid offers by the two carriers. I am suspicious so I signed up for their beta program :). https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/freedompop-s-unreal-mvno-uses-sprint-t-mobile-merger-to-offer-15-unlimited-service

    Wild speculation about Dish

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread. But have some news for the horse's (ass, as in donkey) mouth. Charlie Ergen, at the Connect(X) conference gave a few details about their upcoming network: 1. It will cost approximately $10B which is what a brand-new nationwide network costs, which leads one to believe they will not partner with anyone else 2. They have 654 days to deploy Block H spectrum 3. The network will follow the NB-IoT standard and then 5G-IoT standard when that becomes available 4. It will be heavily virtualized with network slicing 5. It will be designed not for smartphones (longer data sessions) but for the shorter data sessions of IoT 6. They don't have the money right now so they operate like a startup For all the handwaving, don't be surprised if they don't sell network capacity to non-IoT (say MVNO's) at some point. https://www.fiercewireless.com/5g/ergen-s-5g-buildout-ambitions-for-dish-could-pass-10b
