Is  there has been a change of plans?  Band 13 has been integrate, but no upgrade in the towers. Is this because of the merge? t mobile are already deploying  band 71 and they promise will be operational by september.. Any thoughts?

Deploying new equipment takes quite a bit of time. You're not going to see the turn around in a couple of months. The speed at which they opened up Band 13 to Sprint customers was impressive. The new tri-band equipment has been designed, but it will probably be some time yet before they clear all the hurdles to actual deployment.

And no, the potential merger with T-Mobile has not affected any deployment plans thus far.

Band 13 has a 10 mhz  bw while band 25 is  5 mhz, phones should prioritize band 13 .In places like the mall where  both frecuency have the same strenght  that is not the case

Did they not inherit band 25 from Open Mobile as well?

I think so,  but no upgrades yet

Some of that may have been used for EVDO/1xRTT, so it'll need to be cleared/pared down and they'll need to coordinate the changes with what is left of Open Mobile before Sprint can begin broadcasting LTE on those channels.

    • Here is this device that can probably be called an HDMI over LAN extender: http://sgcdn.startech.com/005329/media/sets/IPUSB2HD2_Manual/IPUSB2HD2.pdf  Don't be scared by the word LAN. It can be extended over the WAN, just make sure you forward the port on the router to the right device. Google "HDMI over IP" lots of different devices available.
    • I think removing it and keeping it that way is cool.   Even TMobile didn't go as far as Sprint with 600/700MHz.  If Sprint ever had a B41 only device, then they should only show B41 coverage, but keep it the same color.  However, they could leave the API there to be used on a site like our local user here (forgot name/site name) for the more geeky users and to track B41 a little.  However, it needs a lot of work and a lot of updating.  
    • Not at all. Sprint has added Extended LTE (roaming treated as native LTE) to their maps without an issue in the past. I think it just has to do with the Band 41 coverage map being wrong and ultimately misleading customers about LTE coverage for months now. Until they fix it, they probably shouldn't even bring back that layer of the maps. It's perfectly fine to have a single LTE layer since that is what every other carrier does.
