Is it not a software/firmware update on the existing 8T8R equipment?
It is. Several Nokia / Ericsson land markets have all three active. Software is not finalized and ready for widespread push yet though.

Nope because the news came from Milan Milanovic who, as far as I know, actually works for Ookla. Sprint's average speed climbed to 23.9 Mbps from 14.5Mbps last November.

Do you think Sprint will Sprint ahead once they turn on 4x4 mimo & 256qam?

256QAM made a huge difference in speed for T-Mobile when they activated it. I believe the same will occur for Sprint if they can implement. We have a commitment of early next year. I hope Sprint meets this... It will be awesome. I know it doesn't make much of a difference with Band41 (it will for Band 26 and 25). It will make some (more) difference even on 41 with a HPUE device.

Milan doesn't work for Ookla. He's just a TMobile schill. 

 

Remember his Intel vs Qualcomm iPhone modem articles? He conveniently forgets to mention how he's sponsored by Qualcomm and has a working relationship with them.

 

People shouldn't take him seriously, unless he's quoting crowd-sourced data. His "laboratory" tests mean nothing.

Quote from article..

"We took a look inside the Qualcomm iPhone with the help of Ookla's Milan Milanovic. (Note: Ookla is owned by Ziff Davis, PCMag.com's parent company.) Milanovic has a key piece of equipment we don't have in-house, provided by Rohde & Schwarz."

How much gear is capable of even doing that for B25/26?

I think Sprint has been moving a long great with B41, but not giving any love to their other bands.  Being able able to utilize additional LTE technology and have increased power output would go pretty far for B25/26 when one isn't on B41.  Especially spectrum starved B25 areas and high capacity sites.

He is a T-Mobile schill but he in fact does work for Ookla and receives information that carriers typically have to pay for. He has authored or co-authored at least 5 articles for them.

Interesting! Guess he finally got hired!

He typically spends his time trying to drive traffic to his Cellular Insights blog...

All gear. It will merely be a software/firmware update.

Now I know how t-mobile is getting into TV, by way of a cable company layer 3, they aren't in all areas though.

No - if they want local programming. It’s extremely difficult. As not all local channels are owned and operated by the network.

And I assume TMO will need to beef up it’s network too.

It's been below freezing the entire time I've been home here in Kentucky.  Cold as can be but, hey, I've been getting excellent Sprint band 41 service all over! That should warm the soul!
