    Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    Correct, none broadcast CA using 39965.

    The Issue is, I have yet to see a mini macro site broadcasting 39965 in NYC proper, this sounds more like a SC running single carrier.

    As far I know, there are no MM sites broadcasting 39965(also no CA with 39965 since they have designated these for SC/MB). This is most likely either a frequency change or a new site.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Why anyone would think they would is rediculous considering what they are attempting.

    They have yet to pass FCC, so cannot be live for public consumption.

    Two things, I hope they are using an updated GS8 for testing, latest versions radio performance is considerbly better. Also, I hate that they include NJ. It's gotten a lot better the last few months or so but still nowhere near as great as NYC..

    Ha, don't want to bother him too much, one of you guys should step up to the plate.

    Has Nokia's equipment passed FCC?

    Awesome!

    Jitter is actually more important for VoLTE. Pings do affect response time, but QOS with 30-50ms should work ok.

    I have found that after it's latest update my MB pings have improved by quite a bit. Used to be in the 70-90's. Now I'm seeing pings in the 40's (mind you, I do hit pings in the 20's directly from macro site so MB hop is adding 20-30ms) regardless of speed.

    Leave it alone, the pings will improve. I've seen my pings go from 70-80 to 30-50 after a while on the MB.

    How long have you had it installed? It's way more sophisticated than most people think. Leave it alone for a few days while it self optimizes.

    256QAM has already been spotted, but hard to confirm since it requires a super clean SNR plus an app that can confirm it, and yes, 8t8r can do 4x4MIMO with software update. It seems Nokia integrating ALU equipment has been a huge headache. I personally think it's more an issue where they have only deployed 2xCA, like any place north of 167st in Manhattan or the Bronx, they could definitely use 4x4MIMO. Most places that have 3xCA live already perform on par to the best the other carriers are offering.
  15. Sprint has been expanding B25 to 10x10 all over the country where available, and yes, many places do have 10x10+5x5.

    Also as a side note: The GS9 also supports handing off from Wifi to LTE and vise versa during calls which comes in handy when keeping calling plus enabled.

    Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    I rarely ever drop to 3G, (unless in elevator or some odd place, but phone switches to LTE farely quickly) But calling plus works well in areas without congestion. The north Bronx is only place where there is no 3xCA so its fine 70% of the time. But in other boroughs (South Bx, Manhattan, BK and Queens even LI) I have a solid experience (Good 8 out of 10 times)

    I'm on the Sprint version, didn't want to risk missing features. But I do believe most features are working on the unlocked version, either by default or thru workarounds. $719 is an excellent deal for this device.

    I've been rocking my GS9+ since day 1 release, and it is without question, the most powerful radio of any device. Not to mention, the rest of the device is awesome!

    Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    Great speeds! But I do not think the essential supports 256QAM.
  21. Another good shot of Massive MIMO antenna(center) compared to what looks like 8t8r(right)
  22. I believe this issue is more apparent with non HPUE devices, but yes I do see sub .50 uploads alot more often.
