Yikes! Though it doesn't make me feel that much better that it's currently 2F outside, and I need to get up and take the trash out.

Lol Redspark lives in DC. Didn’t realize how close we’re all together. When massive MIMO rolls around we all should meet up and nap together

Is Maryland claiming Minneapolis now? :P

I’ve got some family out in Derwood too! Sprint definitely needs some more towers out there. Coverage really drops off in the area between Rockville/Gaithersburg and Olney, north of Norbeck Country Club. I report the network issues as often as I can.

Happy New Year’s!

Looks like Rootmetrics Maps are working again for Speed Test mapping in its Coverage Map App on iOS.

Did some speed tests walking around the DuPont Circle area of DC yesterday around lunchtime. Saw the hexes were updated with my Tests this morning! Great progress with more to come hopefully this year as more small cells/sites are deployed and as all sites are upgraded with all three LTE bands.

Yes. Absolutely!

Hopefully Dr. Saw (https://twitter.com/SprintCTO) and Joe Meyer (https://twitter.com/SprintNetwk) continue the strong advocacy for Sprint’s network tech that Günther did such a good job communicating on.

Made it out to the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, VA today. (https://airandspace.si.edu/udvar-hazy-center) Amazing exhibits of planes, rockets, etc.. Of course I mapped the network a little too! B)

Are you saying Was? So that means some are active right now?  If so, Where?

Massive MIMO will make a huge difference in dense urban areas. DC’s in-town population has grown substantially since I’ve lived here. Tons of condos and new developments all over the place.

Pehaps we’ll get a sense of where things stand during the next Earnings Call. (TBD, but at the end of January I believe based on past practice.)

Speeds have definitely increased in the Logan Circle (DC) area even on legacy Clearwire equipment, but I think that is mostly due the config change. The business district (K St) continues to struggle, but I did notice either a new tower in Metro Center is online or Macy's installed a Sprint DAS because I had consistent B25 service throughout the store. Previously, I'd drop to 1x or no service.

Like you I hope we get a clearer picture on the next earnings call. I also keep watching this page to see if Sprint signs an agreement with DC Gov for small cells: https://octo.dc.gov/page/small-cells

I wonder how aggressively Sprint plans to swap out the Clearwire equipment as part of its CapEx surge. DC’s downtown core could really benefit from Massive MIMO. I’ll have to check out the Macy’s too!

Good find. I’ll keep an eye on that page too.

Sprint has really thrown down the gauntlet for this year’s “Big Game” in Minneapolis: http://newsroom.sprint.com/network-big-game.htm

......and those upgrades are permanent!

The preparation for the Presidential Inauguration in January 2017 seems like it was the last large scale CapEx surge for DC: http://newsroom.sprint.com/sprints-dc-network-ready-to-support-great-american-tradition-presidential-inauguration.htm

Here’s how Sprint prepared for the Pope to visit DC (and elsewhere) before that: http://newsroom.sprint.com/preparing-for-pope-francis.htm

And here’s the after-action report: http://newsroom.sprint.com/capturing-and-sharing-the-pope-francis-visit.htm

Perhaps we need a “Big Game” in DC! :D

I wonder even with all the upgrades if they will still have COW's; though it doesn't sound like they need it.
