I swear some how sprint is getting faster in NYC. First is at my desk at work on 33rd between Park and Madison, second is on 34th and Park.

Those uploads! Could it mean that Sprint finally switch their download:upload ratio in NYC?

I thought that when I took the first Speedtest. They were different days so the 60mbps one was first even though the time was later. Thats from a Clear site. But once I took the 2nd one today and the upload was over 8Mbps I thought maybe they haven't switched the ratio yet. That one is from a MM site. Unless upload CA is in effect and my V20 supports itl

I saw a old forum from the past that shows Sprint can do 10x10 B25 in NYC. So they have areas where it's possible yet have not done it. Yet away.

Sprint has already deployed 2xCA on B25..

Good but I was talking about it being possible for one of the carriers to be 10x10 instead of 5x5.

That has been possible since B25 CA’s initial release...

Speeds have slowed down a lot in Sheapsheadbay area / Kings highway  Brooklyn.  (0.50kb/s...)

Not sure whats going on. What really pisses me off is the terrible service I get while on above ground subway.

I take the N or Q to Manhattan and its slow and cant watch much videos.

T mobile was great when I did the test drive awhile back on the above ground subway.

I think I will switch soon once my contract is up,  Sprint is better now but its so damn inconsistent.

What I can tell you is that a bunch of markets are already broadcasting Config 2, and check out massive speeds even without 4x4 MIMO..

I would like to see some more progress in the more residential areas of New York City boroughs. Seems things have kind of taken a slow progression. Haven't been able to report any new activity out this way.

Wait..these speeds are actually being realized currently in real world use? That's insane!

Where are these speeds and who is taking the tests? Need more evidence....

Yup! Config 2+3XCA using GS8 in greenwood Indiana..

This was taken 5am, unloaded tower.

During the day speeds hover between 200-260mbs

Hopefully the  improvements in Long Island and I have a feeling the same is happening in North NJ as well as most of the network, will allow Sprint to dominate the root metric report for NYC.

 

I only recently realize how much more spectrum Sprint as than its competition. I tested out a Verizon sim and they only have 10x10 B17, 15x15 B2, and 20x20 B4. I honestly thought they have 20x20 for each band in NYC. Speeds on each band individually never  reach over 10mbps. They only have 10 mhz more than T-Mobile; 5mhz more in the low band and 5 in the mid band for the smaller amount of customers this gives t-mobile a great advantage. But Sprint has a even greater advantage with even less customers and even more Spectrum. 75 x 75 if you combine is all but realistically it's 60 x 60 with 3xCA. When it comes to 3xCA Sprint has the most aggregated spectrum of any network.

The funny thing is that in the west and northern Bronx, Sprint has yet to deploy the 3rd carrier,  from what I hear, they do not seem to have 60Mhz of contiguous band 41.  

They might have to wait until they finally deploy non contiguous CA. <_<

Where are you coming up with 60x60? If you're talking about B41, remember it is not paired spectrum. The UL and DL is on the same channel, so it's 20+20+20 on 3xCA. Simply 60MHz, not 60x60.

Yes I'm aware of that. Just trying to make a comparison. For the download link its a very close comparison

VZW uses B13 not 17 which can't go any higher than 10x10. They can reframe to add B5, VZW also bought B66 there.

Correct. And Verizon has deployed 20x20 B2 and B4 across the entire NYC metro area. Only EVDO/1x left is on B5.

My rooted Nexus 6 only shows 15x15 on B2 on Long Island and in Manhattan

      Ericsson RRUS31 B25 + RRUS11 B26
      These are the newest and greatest remote radio units to come from Ericsson. 

      The new Ericsson RRUS31  B25 should be fairly distinctive compared to the earlier RRUS11s and now the RRUS12s being deployed by ATT and Verizon. One of these new RRUS31s can do the job of two earlier RRUS11s thus reducing deployment costs for Sprint and complexity in deploying new sites and making it easier for users to spot as there are now 4 jumpers coming out of one RRUS31 rather than two from each RRUS11 that Ericsson originally deployed. 

      All future deployments will be utilizing the new Ericsson RRUS31s. In addition Ericsson are sending crews to their original deployments and swapping out older RRUS11s for these new RRUS31s due to the aforementioned fact that one RRUS31 can do the job of 2 RRUS11s. Weight savings will be significant at sites where there are 4 or 5 RRUS11 B25s that can be replaced by one or 2 RRUS31s. The Ericsson RRUS31 deployment project is known as the 65 Mhz Project.

      Ericsson High Capacity / 4x4/2 MIMO Deployment
      Note the additional antenna + PCS radio.
      Previously Ericsson utilized additional PCS radios and used RF combiners for high capacity setups where they utilized three or more PCS radios. This new setup will utilize a completey new antenna + radio set just like Samsung and run 4x2 MIMO on the LTE antenna / radio set. 
       

       

       

       
      Ericsson RRUS11 B25 [EOL'd] and B26
      A standard Ericsson Network Vision 1.0 site with 3 RRUS11s where two are dedicated to PCS and one to SMR.  

      This type of setup is no longer deployed or utilized in new sites. Existing sites will be slowly converted to newer RRUS31 B25 via the Sprint 65 mhz project. 


       
      Ericsson NV high capacity site [EOL'd]
      3 or 4 PCS RRUs are present for a total of 4 or 5 RRUS11s per antenna.

      Hey guys I found another newsletter about Sprint and Cox. I'll be posting the article here.

      Here are the Alcatel-Lucent (ALU) Network Vision equipment for Sprint. Their equipment consists of 2x base stations, 6 or 9 Remote Radio Unit (RRU) setups, and 1 standard NV antenna of with connectors on the bottom (4x PCS, 2x SMR). 

      Below are images of Alcatel-Lucent equipment. In these images, you will find Alcatel-Lucent base stations, Sprint Network Vision antennas, PCS 1900 & SMR 800 RRUs, and their configurations.

      Standard Alcatel-Lucent Setup 
      Utilizes 2x50w 800 MHz B26 RRU and 4x45w 1900 MHz B25 RRU and compatible antennas. 



      Closer Look at the connectors on the bottom of the antennas

      Note the lack of 800 MHz RRUs though the antennas are capable of 800 MHz.
