Whose is this? Noticed this at my local WalMart.  Doesn't seem to be Sprint's' due to dBm.

That's pretty damn cool. I've never been to Texas at all (aside from passing through DFW without exiting the airport)  but I certainly think they'll appreciate this!

Everything is bigger and better. As a former Texan, I can attest to that!

That's funny, because Nebraska's ego was the reason the Big12 almost broke apart. Nebraska got jelly and they couldn't stand not being the center of attention.

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?

The first three things that come to mind are a faulty radio, loose jumpers or a site config error…

I would tweet Marci Carris on twitter and include all of the details you know of—that’s probably the best way to quickly get in touch with a local engineer.

They could definitely get some of the  Sprint assets, such as enodeBs, remote radio heads, antennas even the EPC.

Curious what we hear from him going forward, and I do like that he wants to hear from us as well.

    • I read the portion of the filing that is being referenced in the article and it makes it seem as though both Sprint and T-Mobile are in a dire position. It's funny that despite all that has been stated, both carriers have 5G plans going out at least 6 years from now prepared already, should they be forced to operate separately.  The main issue presented is that Sprint can't deploy 2.5GHz 5G in rural areas because they don't have the money to do so. The only way to get more money is to have more customers. Because of Sprint's poor network perception, the only way for Sprint to get new customers is to lower prices. And because of low prices, Sprint can't make as much money off of their customers so they're stuck in a loop.  T-Mobile on the other hand has the money to build a broad 5G network over 600MHz, but they don't have the spectrum to provide 5G speeds like Sprint can. So they'll be able to claim the title of the largest 5G network by square mileage but with speeds that aren't much better than current LTE speeds. Sprint will a larger network capable of providing faster speeds. Basically, T-Mobile won't be able to compete effectively in the 5G space in terms of offering "true 5G experience" to their customers until they can get everyone off of LTE which isn't happening soon. The solution is that in merging, the New T-Mobile will be able to deploy 2.5GHz over a large area so that more people can have access to those higher speeds that they wouldn't get by 600MHz only or because of Sprint's smaller network.
    • Yup and we could have Sling for free lol
    • Yeah, Dish could have invested all that money that they invested in spectrum on Sprint's network instead. They could have brought the AWS-4 25x20 band of spectrum to sprint to strengthen Sprint's midband position, they would not have needed to bid on the AWS-3 auction and they could have probably acquired a 10x10 band of 600MHz.
    • Yup I can’t wait. Luckily Sprint has a good amount b41 deployed in urban areas. So I would assume T-Mobile will have to do a carrier update for their phones that are b41 capable.
