Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Tuesday, January 31, 2012 - 7:46 PM MST
Since last fall, there had been talk of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus launching on American carriers other than Big Red. Sprint has finally announced several weeks ago that it is the another vendor slated for release in the U.S. Suffice to say, many of us out there, especially those adverse to heading to Verizon and paying its premium prices, are excited about the impending release.
The good news is that Google could be working on an updated version of the Galaxy Nexus. It has unofficially been dubbed the Galaxy Nexus Plus. There is much anticipation that it will be released before Sprint turns on LTE this summer. It’s not the first time an OEM has refreshed a device and re-released it to the market place, which works to our advantage. It’s rumored that the new Galaxy Nexus will have either a 1.5 or 1.8 GHz Texas Instrument OMAP4670 dual core processor. This would be a significant upgrade from the 1.2 GHz dual core processor found in the current Verizon version.
We don’t know anything about official specs, but it’s also rumored to have an 8 MP camera. This is a noteworthy upgrade to the 5 MP shooter on the Verizon model (which has been lauded by many techies). We already know that the Sprint model will come installed with Google Wallet, per previous announcements. Some rumors also point to a beefier battery as well. The phone should have all the other features that’s on the current Galaxy Nexus, so now all we have to do is wait.
Which portion of a cell site could go down so band 26 no longer works but band 25 does?
My local site that has some problem every few months (usually voice / evdo) went completely down a couple of weeks ago. Using the sprint app i reported it and either coincidentally or not, they got voice and evdo working once again as well as band 25 10x10. Band 26 has been dead since. I report it every day / every other day. Middle of this past week band 26 popped up back online mid-day only to die again within a half hour and it has been offline since then. Tech probably got it working and high tailed it out of there.
So...which band 26 only part could possibly break which doesnt effect anything else, including band 25?
I found this but doesn't confirm if its a DAS or not. Just that LTE is live in that section. AS far as them trying to negotiate to get LTE live every where in the station it still hasn't happened. But its still only been 11 months since Craig-s said that and he mention it taking a year.
Its an underground train station that opened around June 2017. I guess it could be a MM or SC but in all my experiences DAS systems show up as MM on SCP. That how it is in JFK and LGA airport.
edit: its the west end concourse of penn station.
