  1. This is what excites me most. This will help the network tremendously.
  2. Verizon shrinking coverage in Maine.

    If you're on B13 for an LTEiRa provider, it shows as a Verizon signal, however if you have a 1x or 3G signal, it will show the local provider information for that. At least that's how my work phone (with signal check) has shown the information in the past when I've traveled out of network.
  3. Google's strategy has changed since the Motorola sale. At the time of the Motorola purchase, Google was still focused on appeasing multiple manufacturers. The android market has since consolidated around Samsung, so Google is much less concerned about appeasement now. Secondly, Google has shifted to vertically integrating it's phone/tablet business from manufacturing to OS, like Apple has done from the start. Hence the purchase of HTC to get into the direct manufacturing/supply line game. The Pixel phones where a step in this direction, but Google still had to use a third party and then badge the phones, now that middle man gets cut out. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  4. I'm surprised that with all the tourist traffic there, Sprint doesn't have a tower in Amana. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  5. Sprint suing All Aboard Florida

    There's probably a contract covering what costs each party is responsible for. The issue is probably on cost overruns, which might not be dealt with the contract. There are a number of contingencies that Sprint might feel like AAF is responsible for. So to court it goes. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  6. Sprint suing All Aboard Florida

    Because Sprint is not the owner of the ROW, just a leaser from AAF, AAF doesn't need to pay Sprint 100%, though a good landlord should at least provide some financial help for moving the utilities in question. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  7. Sprint suing All Aboard Florida

    Shady? Hardly. They're in the middle of a billion+ $ railway expansion. The issue is over how much Sprint think their share of the relocation costs are. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  8. If Warren Buffet is involved, he's in for the long haul, not looking for a buyout. Probably will take the company private too. Judging by the success of the other companies he owns, there will definitely be investment into the Sprint product. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  9. So apparently all TV meteorologists are hacks. This would be a surprise to all of them that spend hours looking over their equipment, running the models, and prepping for their segments to keep the public informed with accurate (as much as they can be) information. There's a reason the local meteorologist is often a community stalwart. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  10. It's"exclusive" like the Pixel was exclusive to Verizon. They will still sell the phone unlocked.
  11. Signalcheck likes to freeze on my Note 5 whenever it is on B25 and I try to open up the app from the notification bar. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  12. BGR is an unashamed Apple fanboy site and T-Mobile loving site. In their minds, everything those companies do is perfect. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  13. I don't believe this is in error because I never had the ability to roam on USCC LTE. Suddenly this appears after others have been reporting AT&T roaming. I just didn't expect to see it in USCC​ territory. I have a note 5, so I have srlte.
  14. At&t must be giving Sprint a good roaming deal. I'm roaming on them in uscc territory.
  15. That's the one I was thinking of. I guess I thought that their 3.5-4 B$ number was also broken down like that. So this is positive news. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  16. Oh! Their graphic showed that they did 3.5 Billion in FY16. I guess the real number was much lower.
  17. Would I be able to get a magic box for my office (which is a black hole for cell signal) instead of my home? There's B25, but you can only get it near the walls, and then the drop off is to zero. I should also note my office WiFi is close to useless (thank you Centurylink).
  18. Looks like capex is the same this year as last year. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  19. Why never again? Cedar Rapids has no B41 available, but has the usual amount of B26 and B25, would Sprint be able to deploy B25 small cells there?
  20. AT&T directly offers Fixed Wireless

    Verizon has done the same thing with their copper lines. Users with breakdowns or failures are now getting wireless modems as replacements (much to their chagrin). Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  21. Samsung Galaxy Note 5 User Thread

    Judging by the fact the S8 is being launched with only 7.0, I think Samsung doesn't even have a 7.1 build ready for their phones. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  22. Because Sprint isn't a competitor for your dollar in non USA markets so the roaming rate Sprint gets charged is probably much lower (if not straight up reciprocity). Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  23. To note this is designed as a convenience for people who vacation, not for long term stays. If you're going to really be abroad for over a month, they definitely are pushing you to get a local SIM. Sprint even states that they are not to be your foreign provider.
  24. I should have noted that it works in some places. Vancouver is one that it did really well. I think it depends on how they handle the throttling. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  25. Normally I'd say that's fine, but Google maps doesn't even work at that speed (which is pretty much all I use my phone data for overseas). Most of the time things just time out instead at 64kbps. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
