Speaking of Coverage.... Sprint’s Coverage Map was just updated today (4/6/2018): http://coverage.sprint.com/IMPACT.jsp

DC’s Coverage appears to be messed up now. A bunch of LTE Plus Coverage over Downtown is missing.

Not sure what you mean, this is FCC approval for use of the equipment in the US, not deployment permit.

Bwahahhahahha he gave you an FCCID because he knows we are nerds and we circle that search tool like buzzards. This is just great, fun stuff all around. This guy is better than we thought.

I mean it's not hard to find FCC entries tbh especially if you search by specific vendors.

Also... tossed this together:

They sort of fixed the Missouri market issues that came with the last update, so that's good. Fix one, break another I guess. Ha!

Samsung equipment has already received the software upgrade for 4x4 MIMO, 256QAM and 15x15 L1900 although I don’t *think* we’ve heard anything regarding Alcatel Lucent...

Nokia/ Alcatel are usually late to the party lol

I live in a Samsung Market, so when will that actually be live?

I don’t know…

We’ve already seen real world demonstrations of massive MIMO on 3500 MHz marching the range and propagation of 1800 MHz (at 2x2 MIMO); I can only imagine how Sprint’s 2500 MHz NR will look with 64x64 MIMO...

In Seattle (which was PCS/BRS only until a few months ago), if 2500 MHz NR coverage could match L1900 coverage today, Sprint would be the undisputed #1 carrier.

3500? Is that LAA?

It would be the CBRS band in the US.

for the last decade all Sprint has done is talk in confidence then fail to deliver. For me it's “Just the same talk on a different day”.... can sprint finally once and for all delivery the kind of network they have been wanting to roll out

To be fair Marcelo has not been with them for the last decade. He was handed alot that takes years to recover from. People talk about TMO while forgetting att paid for that. If Sprint would have gotten that money the would likely be where TMO is also.

So, let's say even if sprint works at the pace tmobile did they will still remain lightyears behind just like tmo is still behind in overall area covered.

    • I started working on the Raspberry Pi 3b Plus tonight with an Sierra Wireless em7565. This one has all those cool features that I was describing up top. Not bad for ~39 bucks. I was waiting for a few open source firmwares to get through the compilebot6k's toobs; this one is built now. Some use modem manager or openWRT for the router side. This LTE radio is band(s) 2/26/41 capable on the Sprint side. Band 25 did not make the cut, but was on previous Sierra builds. This is a tester radio so there is a slight chance it will appear down the road. It has just about every other LTE band.  

      This is an example of the debug screen. GMO is nearest so we only get 26 from a far site. No 41 in our zip yet. 
      The best part is I can plug an MC7455(that would be Modem#2) or another EM7565 in and it can hop over to that or I can direct load balancing. I just wanted to show the EM7565 authenticated below. Another shot of my terrible reception. Here it is out of the armor.

      So, we have a stable software image. I will get it built and add some GPS features, then test on band 41 in Myrtle where present. We have one site w 8t8r gear to test 3xCA on, so it might be a minute. I am in 2xCA MM areas through the week. I will see how it likes the Magic box too. 

      I should have a true GB ethernet router to massacre in the next couple of weeks with software images already set to go. I can embed the radio beyond a USB adapter. It still requires m.2>mPCIe but that is one less failure point and better throughput. This was a great breakthrough in affordable and small solutions for us.  I have to go to bed and then work now.

      Have a great week everyone.
    • Thank you so much for bringing light to this! I would have never known about it had you not posted it! You've saved me a lot of money and lowered my bill moving forward! It wasn't an easy process, but well worth it. Unlocking the phones was surprisingly easy. But the small hiccup came with my final bill. When I received it, I thought I was screwed when I saw that the ETF was included. I almost paid for it too, but the frugal in me decided to call Sprint (couldn't hurt, right?). After an hour on the phone with a US supervisor, my account was credited for the full amount of the ETFs. I walked away Scot-free!! Thanks a bunch OP! I'm trying Verizon's throttled unlimited data plan. Excellent reliability in the city, but there are certain key spots where I need my phone that aren't great. I don't know if it's the throttling or the network.
    • I see more mass upgrades by TMO on 600mhz -- it seems they did an amazing and fast roll out. If I recall folks here thougt TMO wouldn't be able to see much strides for a year plus.

      Reason I bring it up is TMO can't have much more free cash than Sprint. Yet can operate fast and lean.

      Positive note Sprint has rocked it's upgrades this past year...
