Yep, everyone that was there is still good to go. I don't expect to change that anytime soon.
Quick update on recent progress to reassure everyone.. I have spent many hours over the past few weeks trying to bring SignalCheck up to date by switching to the new Android Studio development environment as well as implementing the new Android permissions model required if you compile for Android 6.0 or higher. I had been skirting both of these mandates by using older software and compiling it for Android 5.0, but obviously there are many new features (yes, I have seen all of your e-messages!) that would be great to add into the app. It has been a far more cumbersome process than I anticipated, and I'm not very comfortable with the new IDE yet. But I'm putting the work in, so stay tuned!
Let's keep from getting overtly political with this. Of course, a political discussion is allowed when it is specific to Sprint and telecommunications policy, etc. However, please keep it from getting partisan or vitriolic.
And it is OK to speculate on subjects. Just make sure to use some rational explanation to back it up why you believe it could happen. Otherwise you open yourself to a lot of critical analysis.
All things being equal, they're about the same. However, there are many places in the South Sound/Kitsap & Olympic Peninsulas where weak EDGE works from the same tower where weak B12 LTE will not.
Additionally, Tmo has skipped some of their site upgrades to LTE leaving EDGE only (GSM only, for AJ) where there is weak B12 overlay at the site from other sites. It leaves the coverage map looking complete, but a very weak VoLTE experience in those areas.
I don't want to make it out as plain awful. It's not. But if there was a consistent HD GSM layer underneath and was seamless, that would be better in my area than what we have. And for many on Sprint, that is what they have with HD calling in CDMA on 800. We tend to take voice for granted, until it's not there. Then you'll notice what a reduction in voice coverage does. No bueno.
