I actually like cdk's suggestion of using a subscript for second carrier, if feasible.  That gets rid of the "squared" implication while still looking elegant, I think.

 

I wonder how well a subscript would display in the notifications shade.  On the other hand, my thoughts are that a plain script "#X" carrier number moniker could display in the notifications bar, too.

I'm seeing the squared on my Verizon daily driver now. Is mikejeep using that to signify 20 MHz on Verizon? Our market went away from second carrier of AWS to a single 20x20 due to the spectrum swap they did with T-Mobile.

You mean in the icon in the notifications bar?  I'm not sure I'm following.

 

I don't like the #X notification because I don't think it will look as nice.  But that's me.

Can the talk of SignalCheck get moved to the SCP thread?

Is this something new?  40072 and 39874 in San Diego.

It's one of those "weird" EARFCN assignments. 

 

39874 corresponds to center frequency 2518.4 MHz. 

40072 corresponds to center frequency 2538.2 MHz

Adding 198 would be 40270 which would be 2558.0 MHz.

Seeding 3xCA?

Part of the earfcn reorganization.

 

2496-2568, 2572-2614, 2618-2690 are the theoretical maximum maximum allocation.

 

2618-2672. 5 is the BRs high portion. 2496-2568 is mostly leased Ebs which is very variable.

 

2572-2614 was really only seen in Columbus who are migrating away to 2618+ for 3 contiguous carrier aggregation.

So they won't have to go and do any Spectrum refarming right?

Yes there are reports across the country where PCS C block is used with G to create 10mhz LTE carriers.

It's a 5mh FDD LTE carrier located on center frequency 1933.1 which is the PCS A block.

 

So a 2nd 5mhz b25 carrier.

They are trying to swap with other carriers to create 10x10, 15x15 or even 20x20 adjacent blocks. I wonder if Dish migh e willing to let go of PCS F block for peanuts (which the only things that Sprint can afford nowadays ;))

If you mean the PCS H Block (Dish doesn't own the F Block), it honestly won't help Sprint that much. It's frequencies are not included in Band 25 and Sprint would need yet another boutique band, new equipment and certifications from the FCC and it probably wouldn't really be worth the cost.

PCS H is useless though. Better off swapping with C5

Ideally the whole C block so the carrier can be expanded to 20x20 later on.

I recall reading AJ's and lilotimz posts on PCS H block's problems. I wonder though if at some point in the future the gubment will decide to consolidate spectrum and offer Sprint/Dish the ability to include H block into b25.

I know it would require new hardware to accommodate the expansion, but since the only real barrier is the politically divvy'd up spectrum (as opposed to the actual physical frequency) - I'd say it would be possible to repack B25 if there was enough motivation.

The government does not decide the bands.

 

An international standard consortium (3GPP) does and you cannot retroactively add stuff. It must be in a new superset band of you want to add compatibility with the PCS A-F blocks.

    • There are positives to be had if there is a merger, for sure.  I don't believe a merger is bad in every way. And if it happens, there will be things that I will like. I just believe, at this time, all things considered, I'd prefer they'd be separate.  Just my opinion, and I respect the opinions of others points as well.  Because I considered them, and they are marked in the 'pro' column for me. I like where Sprint is going now more than ever in it's past.  And Sprint's road to "5G" is less capital intensive than the others because of spectrum and equipment deployed. 
    • I was also under the impression that site would be in the town of Wall. And the closest planned site to Wall in my maps is in New Underwood... Wish we had some eyes out there.
    • I don't think a merger will help consumers much.  TMobile capex is $5b.  Sprint might spend $5b. A merged company still could have $10b, but it will take years and a LOT of money to consolidate assets. There is going to be a lot of work, and a lot of money that will not go into making the network better, but making 2 networks 1. If you want to see a combined company make ProjectFi your carrier. Just look at some recent mergers.  Charter is doing horrible. AT&T and DirecTV brought no value but just increased TV bills. Large acquisitions tend not to benefit the customers but more so investors and those on the board who get millions for making a deal happen. As an investor I can see the excitement, but not so much a customer.
    • The total percent of subscribers graph shows everything you need to know about the current US wireless industry.  Verizon has ~35%, AT&T has ~35%, and all the other competitors are competing for the final 25% to 30%.  This also means that 70% to 75% of all the profits are split between AT&T and Verizon which gives them the money to keep deploying and keeps them with much larger, stronger networks.  If AT&T and Verizon can each afford to spend $10 billion+ on their networks each year, no smaller competitor can hope to keep up.
    • I see the purple on the Minuteman Site. I've been to it many sites. Very friendly horse next to it. It's a well established AT&T Guyed Wire Site.  It's possible this might be AT&T LTE Roaming pollution on Sensorly.  Especially given the strength of the report. I was expecting the Sprint site in this area to be in the town site of Wall itself.  I guess it's possible Sprint chose this site instead.  If I still lived in the area, I'd go check it out. But alas..
