  1. [Proposed] Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    The smart road is to continue all work (or at least work in progress) as a substantial number of mergers fail in the final stages. Even nTelos managed to put up a lot of LTE right before they were officially acquired. Hopefully it will be different this time for Sprint. This merger could be very much like the Verizon-Vodaphone merger to setup Verizon Wireless. Softbank could end up with about 30% and Deutsche Telekom with 39%. Will Softbank acquire more shares later or quietly cash out?
  2. Network Vision/LTE - Columbus Market

    Sprint has changed its Band 41 configuration in Columbus to boost download speeds during the last week. For more information, become a S4gru sponsor today! (more details in sponsor and premier).
  3. Verizon shrinking coverage in Maine.

    At least with Sprint, any tethering is a violation of terms of service, at least for the older plans. Hotspots are allowed by plan or for additional revenue. These all have smaller limits. Sprint got Clearwire basically because they could not make their model for wireless internet service be profitable.
  4. Verizon shrinking coverage in Maine.

    Were these users tethered or using their phone as a hotspot ( ie using internet from their phone elsewhere?
  5. Verizon shrinking coverage in Maine.

    The sub article seems to be the most accurate: https://www.rvmobileinternet.com/verizon-terminating-certain-rural-customers-for-excessive-usage/ Basically claims that these users are exceeding network limits of 22GB per month / 10GB hotspot per month which Verizon was unable to manage. Accurate?
  6. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Please post any new Magic Box market GCIs (the first three characters). Here is 0EE [credit BluesRulez]:
  7. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Magic Boxes can draw in b41 through MIMO and then hold on to it because they are a constant connection. From a cold start your phone will likely pickup that site GCI first before switching over to the MB (use SCP to see it). Do the legwork yourself to find it (circle each nearby site to get three b41 GCI) or become a premier member and check the Minnesota premier thread.
  8. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    On Thursday the CFO stated at a conference that the Magic Box will go into mass production mode and they expect to have "hundreds of thousands" of them.

    The nice aspects of tapatalk are the ability to easily post photos without limits and notifications (but this has gotten fuzzy lately). The worst aspect is constant bugs.
  10. The CFO of Sprint said on Thursday they will be making hundreds of thousands of Magic Boxes. That would take at least 25 hex primary GCI, so I would extend it to 0EF and then we will have to see what ranges they use after that. He noted that it costs them about the same as a smartphone and they may report MagicBox tonnage with the next quarterly report.
  11. Wow, over 8200 units made since they have hit 0EE. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk

    Not always. LTE could be from a former Clear site, 1xRTT site could be witbout LTE, or LTE and 1xRTT patterns could be different/range. Please use regular SCP thread for this type of question next time. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
