I'm assuming Sprint will eventually do CA on 5x5+10x10 on B25 which will be nice too.

But once they add B25 as PCC+ B41 as SCC, it will be even crazier..

I hoping that CA on 5x5+10x10 on B25 comes soon. 5x5+5x5 came pretty soon after the second B25 5x5 carrier came online, just needed a phone that supported it.

I'm with you on the second one especially. Band 25+41 carrier aggregation will be a game changer for Sprint. Especially with the increasingly large Band 25 carrier sizes providing greater upload speeds.

B25 10+5 CA is live in Kentucky. Should only be a matter of time until it is available in NYC.

Verizon wireless speeds haven’t suffered here in Manhattan. All of their small cells are fed by the same fiber lines that FIOS run on it.

Also, they are deploying those massive big single antennas next to their AWS radios.

Got Big Red beat on peak speeds and ping! LOL Nice upload tho..

Competition is a great thing. Im good with all the carriers performing well for more options and better pricing.

iPhones are slow compared to the Galaxy lines when it comes to radio,nevertheless Sprints speeds have gone up dramatically here in New York.

Yes, Sprint has truly come into its own here in NYC. Its crazy to think that these speeds were achieved without 4x4 MIMO and 256QAM, that should push peak and average speeds 2x.

more Speed test from last couple of weeks..

Still waiting for the 3rd carrier to go live on my site at work. Also waiting on 10x10 to go live as well. I wonder which will come first. Averaging 30-40Mbps Download and 2 Mbps upload currently on B41

With the launch of 10x10, Sprint has as much spectrum for LTE online as VZW does in NYC and it's definitely showing in the speed increase across the city. Verizon is down to it's last 20MHz in CLR to bring online and they're likely only going to bring a 5x5 online until the CDMA shutdown in 2020/2021 sometime. But they still have something like 350MHz of mmWave spectrum that they will deploy for 5G here.
Just think when Sprint fires up the 4th B41 and maybe A 5th that would be more spectrum than VZW.

      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

      Special Case Mexican IBEZ Setup
      Note the lack of 800 MHz RRUs though the antennas are capable of 800 MHz.
