Can confirm!!!! Saw multiple B13 sites online!!! This was between San German and Sabana Grande. Interestingly, there was no roaming indicator this time.

On my way back to Humacao, I also managed to stay connected to band 13 in Gurabo, Juncos, Las Piedras and, obviously, Humacao. I was getting a high ping though, around 400, and the speeds were anywhere from 0.80 mbps to roughly 2 mbps.

Nice. I was able to stay connected to B13 for more than 30 minutes. At least in my area, I was getting very good speeds and pings of about 55 ms. Guess I'm lucky that Open Mobile is not congested in my area.

I think that Sprint may have fully enabled B13 in all the island or in most of the island.

I was able to successfully connect and use for an extended time B13 at San Germán, Hormigueros and Mayagüez. In Mayagüez, I was receiving B13 inside Sam's Club, Dtop, town center, Mayagüez mall.

It seems that my phone still wants to keep B25 most of the time but I saw that at some areas with B25, the phone preferred B13 instead of B25.

Roaming indicator (R icon) didn't appear in any of the locations I was connected, perhaps the transition is complete.

I've been on B13 all day and noticed B25 stop showing on signal check.

 

Edit: B25 showed up again and connected. Must be working on something.

Try enabling all roaming. That's what got me connected.

Yep. My phone still prefers B25 in some areas but I have seen areas where it defaults to B13 even when B25 is available.

Just wait a little more. Seen how it has been in PR, it should be fully enabled in a few weeks.

Update: I Have successfully connected for long periods of time to B13 in the following areas: Mayagüez, Hormigueros, San Germán, Sabana Grande, Guánica, Yauco, Guayanilla, Peñuelas and Ponce (Walmart, Plaza del Caribe... all of Ponce).

Some B13 sites are congested but overall, speeds on congested B13 are faster than on congested B25.

Regarding B41... There's B41 near the Mayagüez Town Center and near the road to the Isidoro García Stadium. Sadly, only 1 carrier on B41 in that area.

In Yauco, B41 is absolutely extremely fast. You will find 3x Carrier Aggregation in the Yauco Plaza II area. I have seen speeds of 80 Mbps which are excellent in this area. 

B41 in Ponce... I have only seen B41 briefly near DTOP and the area where Home Depot was originally located in Highway #2.

Overall, B13 was much needed in PR for Sprint to improve. I'm anxious for VoLTE rollout in PR which is critical for Sprint.

At least for now, I don't feel encajonao with Sprint...

My iPhone stays connected to B13 most of the time, I would say 90% of the time, even when I’m outside. It does this even in places where I previously had full bars on B25.

Exactly the same behavior with my Android phone.

My GS9+ connected to B13 in Cabo Rojo, also at home in Sabana Grande.

Sprint has been down all day on St Thomas, hopefully something good is happening behind the scenes.

    • Oh yeah I do not disagree with you there. Satellite Internet is very outdated. As is Dial and DSL.  So I’m interested to see if they actually do rural deployment of 5g
    • not in urban areas, but for rural, yes it will scoop dial up and dsl customers right up, not to mention satellite internet customers 
    • This is one of a few mobilitie small cells I have found in the area. I'm wondering if it is sprint because there is no relay installed. Actually some that had the relay before has since been removed. It looks to be connected to a wire line network... The two underground communication hatches are on the sidewalk and the unnamed one in the landscaping, yards away from the site. As mentioned, one is unnamed and one says Comcast. Let me know what you guys think. Just as a disclaimer, this site wasn't here about two weeks ago. (Midtown Detroit) Also; Verizon is using a completely different vendor in SE Mich so I highly doubt this site is a verizon one.  https://imgur.com/gallery/irfkNzk If I have time i'd like to create a map of all the sprint small cells provided by mobility in SE Mich... stay tuned as my time is limited. 
    • Okay so I managed to make it out to that other wireline mobilitie site today(or yesterday lol whatever haha) It was getting dark so my photos are not the best but here is what I have. (Btw I also included some of the development going on in this area that may have been reason Sprint decided to locate a small cell here. That and well, its pretty close to Ford Field, Comerica Park and Little Caesars Arena.) Again, sorry for the poor lighting but this is definitely another small cell connected by wire-line as apposed to relay. The last few images are construction for a massive development from Bedrock, which is affiliated with Rocket Fiber.(Both part of quicken loans if that matters) They could be providing the backhaul but unfortunately due to lighting the only wire-line on the utility poles i could spot with a name was Comcast; that's not to say there were many other lines on the utility poles. It was just to dark to spot. Anyway;  here it is:  https://imgur.com/a/HTaHdmD Any thoughts?
