  1. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    112.5 /8.8 2x2 MIMO 64qam DL / 16QAM UL Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  2. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    Some do some don't. Mine didn't but I paid it off and it automatically UICC unlocked a day and a half later and works fine with my tmobile Sim now. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  3. Samsung Galaxy S8 Active Edition

    No. No. Si.
  4. Hello everyone! It is the belief of myself and of the staff that it is time to reopen a new T-mobile LTE and Network discussion thread due to the implementation of "network prioritization" that tmobile is doing to its subscribers. As Sprint has similar language in its TOS, we believe that it is worthy of being discussed here as Sprint may do something similar on a site by site basis. This thread will be strictly for discussing T-mobiles LTE network and technologies and not about personalities, their followers, and etc etc which may be better suited for S4GRUs sister site for T-mobile T4GRU. As a result this thread will be heavily moderated to stay on topic but I view the S4GRU member base very favorably and trust that we won't have much problems here.
  5. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    Yes or online... Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  6. It's live. Has someone visits it recently to confirm. Inside is still terrible as expected.... Need a DAS.... Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  7. Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    This is the downside of a VOIP based setup like Calling Plus. In a full VoLTE setup voice packets are prioritized and the eNB will do whatever is needed to maintain voice quality / continuity.
  8. And here I'm going question marks at an area where tmobile has 4x4 B2, 4x4 B4 and 2x2 B12 all aggregated and giving me 3-5 mbps dl, 4-5 mbps UL.... Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  9. Mobilitie does small cells for everyone. Das and outdoor small cells alike. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  10. Network Vision/LTE - San Diego Market

    3 sector sites are found on mini macro on macros. You need 3 small cell units and good backhaul to support a multi sector setup which ah lte relay cannot reliably provide. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  11. Network Vision/LTE - San Diego Market

    Nokia mini macro 2.5, airspan irelay 460, alpha wireless omni directional 2.5 GHz antenna. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  12. Some have permits or zoning. Other electrical stuff. We've also got unconfirmed information too that's sometimes helpful (Robert got a lot of juicy stuff recently!). Maybe PM me if you have inquiries and I can see if we know anything. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  13. Negative. Only Nokia units currently used in Samsung land are the Nokia mini macros on macros. Sprint doesn't use many of the Nokia flexi zones either. Mostly mini macros. Tbf, you probably aren't at the areas where most the sprint small cells are listed. They like deploying em in tiny clusters but since you frequent the area I'll defer to your observations.

  14. In chicago and a few other areas they often used existing infrastructure. Chicago area has quite a number of Airspan small cells deployed. Neither Verizon nor Tmobile attempted to do what Mobilitie did because they did it the standard way of mass permitting with local authorities for small cell approval. Something Sprint tried to avoid via Mobilitie and their public right of way shenanigans.
  15. Plopping down 75-125' poles for small cells without asking local entities for permission is a great idea. We're going to use right of ways and not care about the locals. Lets see them fight this. ~mobilitie >> gets all small cells deployment blocked and while deployed ones are forced to be removed by local authorities << ^^ TLDR of sprints small cell deployment via mobilitie
  16. IBEZ 800MHz Retrofit

    Yuma is in IBEZ. The area we're talking about is outside the IBEZ but affected by it due to proximity.
  17. IBEZ 800MHz Retrofit

    Enough for 1x800. Potentially enough for 1.4 or 3 MHz. I thought Robert says he has info on 800 lte sites being accepted going up to the exclusion zone? Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  18. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    It's still good to know it has a good 41 reception w/o Hpue. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  19. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    The device doesn't support Hpue. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  20. Prime Case - Tmobile in the past few years. If they can do it. Sprint can.
  21. IBEZ 800MHz Retrofit

    The site in question in venture county. It's not in the ibez. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  22. IBEZ 800MHz Retrofit

    Was my understanding they could and have deployed 1x800 where they could right up to the exclusion zone. There's no B26 due to spectrum not being available as a sideffect of the IBEZ but they have deployed what they could. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  23. IBEZ 800MHz Retrofit

    Ventura county is not in the IBEZ I thought? I thought the zone begins around long beach / compton and southwards?
  24. Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    It does iirc.
  25. [Discontinued] Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    As the merger is now dead dead and posts are now discussing other topics, this thread has run its course.
