Recommended Posts

They changed the colors/roaming indicators around a little.

They really messed with the maps this time. You have to zoom way in to see any detail. I don't like it.

That hashing is really quite difficult to look at.

Next update is supposed to be a Google Maps based map...

The "LTE Plus" coverage in my market, Cleveland, is still way off.  It's mostly understated.  Cuyahoga County is especially bad.  On the flip side, the Eastern part of Mahoning county is overstated in portions east of Youngstown.

  New B41 has been still showing  up from time to time.  I found one  new live from a site off of Brookpark Rd. Just east of I-71 a couple weeks ago.  And the maps and spreadsheet have been continually updated.   A vast majority of sites in the Cleveland metro area now have B41, but one would never know that on Sprint's coverage map.

    • 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.
