  1. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    I will go and take a peak at the site tomorrow. But your probably right.
  2. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    you need to investigate further, i have yet to see sprint use mm (sc cells aside)in midtown. I know that area fairly well, was covered by Clearwire site that crumbled under load during peak hours. I find it hard to believe they would install hc mm site there.
  3. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    Could this be Massive Mimo? I have yet to see a MM HC in NYC.
  4. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    Where did you pick up the HC setup?
  5. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    Just hit up a small cell that had relay backhaul now hitting over 60mbs..ping leads me to believe it's Docsis (40-70ms) but very happy with speeds previously were 5-10mbs.
  6. Sprint is only using 2xCA on the DAS. But im willing to bet, it will hold up really nicely because of one major thing.. Quote from Sprint blog post "We're using a brand new state-of-the-art Distributed Antenna System (DAS) with more than 800 antennas inside the stadium powered by Sprint small cells" This leads me to believe that peak speeds will be somewhat limited but average speeds will stay quite high despite traffic due to antenna density.
  7. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    All clear conversions have wired backhaul. The only sites that have UE Relay are all newly added sites. This also explains the speed they were able to deploy these new sites.
  8. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    The Bronx has many sites fed by relay. In fact the small cell by my block is one of those. It gets the job done during off peak hours, but during peak hours it's less than ideal. Fortunately, John Saw mentioned even using Docsis for backhaul in Altice footprint, so here's to hoping those 20+ sites that I am aware of with relay some how get wired eventually.
  9. @sprint_butters @CarlosG67 @sprintcare @marceloclaure @Apple @hulu @sprint @sprit @verizon Sprint will deploy VoLTE before 5G.

  10. @elonmusk How about adding voice+steering wheel controls to make adjustments with things like mirrors, windshield wipers etc on Model3

  11. [Teaser] The 9th Galaxy Arrives Early - The Galaxy S9

    Holy shiznit!
  12. Sprint has mentioned multiple times that Massive MIMO towers will be software upgradable to 5G NR when ready. This would be a great strategy if indeed the case.
  13. @sprintcare @MarciCarris US rep, reached out and has finally resolved the issue. Thanks again!

  14. @SprintCTO @mpmr4321 @Citi @sprint @marceloclaure @sprintnews Any ideas when clear sites in NYC will be replaced. 2… https://t.co/UjL3erU5t9

  15. LG Google Nexus 5 Users Thread!

    Hopefully we can finally start seeing some user feedback. So far so good! it is without a doubt the best device ive owned!!!
  16. Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    Quote from fox article.. "The phone also supports 3x carrier aggregation and 256 QAM on Sprint, and will be able to get 4x4 MIMO coverage on the 1900MHz PCS band with a "future software update." That will extend 1900MHz coverage for this phone. However, the S8 is not a full gigabit phone on Sprint, as it won't have 4x4 MIMO on the 2.5GHz band. Sprint demoed gigabit capabilities last month using a future Motorola device." http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2017/03/30/galaxy-s8-may-be-fastest-phone-on-every-network.html
  17. Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    Pretty sure it was the other way around, supported 256qam on b41 but no 4x4. Hopefully it's now supported, but would have to go through FCC for re-certification
  18. Cable companies are so stuck on finding ways to force you to stick with them, instead of creatively enhancing the user experience and making themselves indispensable to the customer base, things will continue to spiral downward. Until that day comes (probably no time soon) they will continue to bleed customers.
  19. Tarek Robbiati was pretty instrumental in helping Sprint cut cost creatively. Wouldnt have been a bad thing if he had stuck around for a bit longer. Hopefully, his influence on cost efficiency lingers long after his departure.
  20. I think people truly overestimate what CS (from any carrier) should be able to handle. But I find that using online Chat CS has worked well for me. I do believe Sprint is in transition of fully embracing online/automated based CS, but I think it's a bit too soon for quite a bit of folks. Sprint does have an image problem, some of it deserved, most are not. So I'd take 85% of the comments as bandwagon haters.
  21. Actually he does indeed work for ookla.. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.pcmag.com/news/356437/exclusive-iphone-8-scores-top-marks-in-lte-speed-tests-sof%3famp=1 Quote from article.. "We took a look inside the Qualcomm iPhone with the help of Ookla's Milan Milanovic. (Note: Ookla is owned by Ziff Davis, PCMag.com's parent company.)
