Just wanted to give you guys an update: calling plus works great and it's holding on to an LTE signal like I have never seen before. Calls do drop when the phone drops to 3G

Maybe it's an AT&T fiber area so they are laying fiber?

Some good speeds in Albuquerque. How many sites are live with band 41 as of now ?

I’d say 8-10. That map posted earlier of b41 sites was pretty accurate for ABQ

I just hope we start seeing more activity ... I'm hoping more like 8 to 10 site upgrades per quarter .. doing 8 to 10 year, will take us forever to get to a decent completion percentage.

The site is on top of the New Mexico Bank & Trust building behind them.

I work downtown in the Sunshine Building and definitely don't get those speeds. However, with band 25 CA and 2 carriers of band 41, phone is useable all day no issue.

The site at the NM Bank and Trust is a 8T8R but is not running CA. I get between 5 to 10 Mbs.  If I am connected to Band 25 with CA, I can reach 40 to 50.  However, downtown I believe Sprint wants everyone on Band 41.

 

I think the site they connected to is either I40 and 12th or the Hotel Albuquerque sites which are Mini Macros that have CA enabled.  I have seen speeds that high when connected to those.

Nice improvement! I hope they can do 5 to 10 upgrades a Quarter starting next year.. if not it will take a long time for our markets to get to 70% or so completion rate

Thanks for the info ! Phone seems to have hard time connecting to b41. It like to still choose band 25 as primary. Could this be because of ongoing optimization ?

Another thing I wanted to point out in the thread. Sprint has expanded LTE into Ruidoso NM. It's looks to be live good stretch of highway 70 and inner mountain of gods now has full LTE .. haven't seen anyone report that

It's GMO LTE.  In it's shown on our next map update in the Sponsor section.
