It seems Sprint is going to try to leap frog to 5g, rolling out a year from now. What's actually required for them to do that ? How much is hardware vs software ? For instance, is a b41 antenna all the hardware required , only the software needs to be updated ? Does it require 8T8R antenna ? If an antenna is updated to 5g, will it still work for 4g or only 5g ?
The next step in shutting down former Alltel in Georgia is underway: http://www.phonescoop.com/articles/article.php?a=15007
Of note, AT&T's commitment to keep CDMA live in these markets expires June 15, 2015; I'd be surprised if they keep it on a day longer, which means a fallback to 1x on Verizon for Sprint customers roaming off the interstates and a few other corridors in south Georgia. The SouthernLINC RRPP buildout can't come soon enough...
I dusted off my Novatel Mifi 500 in December and hopped on the $50/month unlimited hotspot data offering. Still don't have any reliable HSI where I live except the major mobile providers, so this has been a revelation. Running all my smart home devices and the kids kindles is great. It does lag occasionally as its Sprint's LTE, but its been a great three months so far. It loves the MagicBox for the most part.
I've had to reboot it a few times when it gets stuck on B26 or the device hangs on the main menu.
Can't believe I've had this thing 4 1/2 yrs and its still kicking strong.
Anyone else notice the new “Customer and Location Data” option as part of the My Sprint App update for iOS released yesterday?
I read the associated Privacy Agreement. Curious to see what Sprint is doing with this.
Mike, will you be utilizing new pre-Alpha/Beta 100 user testing channel announced yesterday?
