If I give it a minute or two, it'll jump to LTE on its own. I'm just not that patient. :)

That's not bad at all. I thought it stayed in 1x

Already have WiFi calling on both my bolt and one A9, so that's nothing new to the table. d411a4e451cdda563b0d1f509392a2a4.jpg

Pretty cool stuff.

Was this using massive MIMO or just 4x4 MIMO?

Wow Sprint could have a winning network with this one. Lets see how this plays out.

So let me follow up on my earlier post complaining about my Sprint service in Walterboro, SC with a post about my service in Naples, FL.

 

Here in Naples, this is what cell phone service is supposed to look like.  I spend most of my time on Band 41, and I've only dropped to 1X when I'm in the Everglades where all the carriers suffer, or when the phone is in my pocket--pulling it out and toggling Airplane Mode brings back LTE no sweat (and if I let it linger on 1X/eHRPD, it's perfectly usable).  Service has been just fine for doing the things I typically do with my phone.  In my hotel room, I'm usually on Band 25; where it's sitting right now, next to my computer which probably makes reception harder, I'm getting -108 dBm on Band 26.  I've tried my phone in every eatery, store, and other destination I've been to here and service has been ubiquitous.

 

So Sprint is obviously capable of building a good network.  They've done so here.  My guess is that optimization has been done here and in full, and it really shows.  It also helps that most or all sites have B41 and there aren't lingering 3G-only sites here.  (Except, again, in the Everglades, where I came across a single site where Sprint is still non-NV, AT&T is still HSPA-only, and Verizon has B13 only, probably at great expense.)

Im currently in St. Petersburg.  Network here is solid other than data.  I've been coming a couple times a year for a few years and doesn't seem like much has changed for coverage.  The B41 gear is no longer Clearwire, unless they just changed the name in SCP reporting to Sprint now.  But the load is pretty bad.  I camp on B26 and it's slow.  B41 isn't as often as the coverage map would make you believe.

 

Though the Tampa Zoo for some reason is just 3G/1x.  Other then that, I really haven't had a bad time in Florida.  Even Disney was a dream, and I'll get to reset it this weekend.

Is it deployed anywhere and available for consumers? If not, I don't care.

Yes, already being pushed on Nokia\ALU towers.

Yes and yes. Just need compatible phones.

 

May I remind you about about Roberts post on the negativity that adds nothing to the thread.

If you think it is possible your post might be "confused" for negativity perhaps one might rethink what they are about to post. Otherwise "honestly" may result in discipline.

The fact that the network is at this level with such low CapEx is a testament to its future potential once Sprint reduces its debt load enough to have free cash flow to enable and support increased CapEx.

"Negative" is subjective. If SG4RU is going to "discipline" for someone expressing their disinterest in Sprint's "look what we can do but don't actually do" game so be it. It seems petty, but I am not going to lose sleep over it.
