Is there a site similar to S4GRU for t-mobile? If the merger were to actually happen in the future, I’d love to know where the nearest towers are to see if things would be different. I doubt it as the death star was horrible here and I figure they wouldn’t have built out a rural area.

There are no devices currently out capable of 4x. The only upcoming device with a 4x capabilities will be the V30.

We used to have T4GRU. It never gained a foothold after two years.  I was urged by several prominent Tmo fanboys to do it for years.  But they did not participate in the way they offered. We had a small loyal group, but it could not keep financially supported.   I just allowed it to go dark in July.

Ping is too low and upload is too high for this to be on LTE.

 

This has to be a fake.

I've gotten pings in the low teens, so that isn't unrealistic, but the upload is a dead giveaway, it's highly likely fake...

On the bright side, I have hit 200mb down at one point or another.

https://www.google.com/amp/bgr.com/2017/08/22/android-oreo-google-pixel-release-date-carrier-aggregation/amp/ this can definitely be good for T-Mobile users who use the pixel XL or pixel on T-Mobile's Network. I just call bunk on it. Because I want to see real World testing.

Hey everyone, just wanted to give an update on stores. Lincoln NE and Omaha NE are on the verge of going LIVE with T-Mobile store fronts. They are in the hiring process and I would expect to see them up within the next 30 days. GREAT!! news for Eastern Nebraska. This combined with them buying out Iowa Wireless, shows that they are serious about expansion.  This will also fill that hole in Iowa and Eastern Nebraska. So, things are coming together nicely................now we wait and see if they announce the BIG DEAL and if it will really be allowed to happen.........................

PS-store #3 will open in Rapid City SD on October 6th.

You don't pluralize things by adding an apostrophe and an "s." This is third grade grammar.  Come on guys. 

One SITE or multiple SITES.  No apostrophe needed as we are not seeking to show possession here.

Pardon me if I don't applaud them for finally building out a network in a metro area of 925,000 people.

well they have to start somewhere....and to build out a network and keep expanding it and building it out they need to make it as big as possible to draw in the proper amount of cash to keep up the expansion...

      Fierce has a poll posted... and is utilizing a bracket style contest to find out who their readers think is the most powerful person in the telecom industry. Between Marcelo and the pink clad Chihuahua of a man... I give it to Marcelo. I think the final winner should be Masa, it's is a name people know and will get to know more in the coming years worldwide. But for the current poll, it's an easy decision for me!

      T-mobile Ericsson Cell Equipment
       
      For Ericsson markets t-mobile uses what is known as AIR antenna units which have the radio unit integrated with the antenna. This type of setup significantly reduces signal loss from the radio to the antenna since they're both practically next to each other and not sepearated by coax jumper cables like that of a remote radio unit.
       
      Basic Ericsson AIR21 setup
      (Note typically there are 2 Ericsson AIR per sector)

       

       

       
      Ericsson AIR21 + Band 12 700 mhz Equipment
       
      Note the addition of a new low band 700 mhz capable antenna + Ericsson RRUS11 B12 (remote radio units) in addition to new TMA (tower mounted amplifiers) connected to the AIR antenna. The new Ericsson RRUS11 B12 + Antenna addition is for tmobiles band 12 700mhz (L700) deployment.

      With the introduction of the new plans Sprint has announced. I told one of my friends about the $60 unlimited plan and she was shocked yet happy about it. She currently has T-Mobile and there has been times where my Sprint service has out performed her service even in the city with puling up information and out of town...well... you already know how that went. She was talking about switching and stuff but then she sent me a typical article bashing Sprint and I got irritated by it and I had to explain to her that Sprint is not bad at all. These articles are based on past experiences from 3+ years ago. I told her I'm pulling 60+ mbps on LTE but she's worried about Sprint being slow ( because of what she read). Guys give me some advice on persuading her to give Sprint a chance. 
       
      I feel like articles that are being posted is what keeps away customers.  It makes no sense that T-Mobiles 2g network is not spoken about when they are in the news for changes to plans and such. But good ol Sprint makes changes and articles that get posted rips Sprint apart for filth.

      Roger Cheng @cnet appears to have had the most fun out of this, it kind of wrote the story for him I guess, so there is that. Also, just noticed the extra title Q, that is gonna drive some people nuts today. Top lel.

      Am I the only one that likes to look at Verizon's coverage comparison tool. I think it gives a good idea of a carrier's generalized coverage as far as those cities that have been announced. However, it takes a while for it to get updated. I look at Verizon's map and think, no one will ever build an LTE network of that size. When I look at T-Mobile, I see a spotty, spread out network. AT&T is also spotty with a few highways covered here and there. Sprint seems to be more put together as in even if it is spotty, they are in blobs rather than random remote areas.
       
      I've also found a few places that Sprint has coverage in but not Verizon such as in southern Texas.
