    200,000 Magic Boxes in under a year. Average speeds of 42Mbps on Band 41. #1 for fastest average download speed in 100 cities including Austin, Denver, Pittsburgh, Salt Lake City and Seattle as well as the market of Indianapolis. Also finally rolling out 4x4MIMO and 256QAM to provide gigabit LTE in over 100 of the largest markets in the country. That's a lot of good news!

    I don't know if anyone got around to reading this on FierceWireless but the gist of it is that analysts are divided whether SoftBank did go back to DT regarding the merger. On one hand you have analysts that think that SoftBank may be more willing to cede control in order to get a deal done before the upcoming spectrum auctions in November and also because if they wait, they may face more regulatory scrutiny in the future. They also point to recent statements that SoftBank may want to maintain 20-30% stakes in key industries around the globe which is smaller and less risky. On the other hand, some analysts say that this doesn't add up to them. They don't think there is any way that Sprint would enter into 2 tower deals and a fiber deal with Zayo (speculative since neither company is commenting) and raise $5 Billion while SoftBank raises $10 Billion with Alibaba as collateral, then turn around a sell and agree to give up control. Both sides have pretty convincing arguments that aren't simply about who is in a worse position or has less money. https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/did-softbank-s-ceo-restart-sprint-t-mobile-merger-talks-analysts-are-divided

    This is at my house, just a block or so from the small cell that was just installed. I haven't had time to get a photo of it. When I'm off this week I will do that and take an SCP screenshot. I'm new to this, I just bought the app today. It seems similar to network cell info. It provided me the location the 1x connection previously and it hasn't changed. Also that I'm on B25 at home. I usually use my wifi at home but it's good info! [emoji16] Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk Here's a speedtest as well.

    Consolidating to 3 Major Carriers is a bad idea in my opinion. I do agree that Softbank has been depriving Sprint of funds in favor of other projects. Perhaps that’s Masa’s way of forcing Marcelo to get rid of the bloat that has dogged Sprint for years... and honestly, if you look at the cost savings that Sprint is achieving now, it’s unbelievable. Literally Billions of dollars of savings. All of this money was wasted for years and didn’t go into the network. Sprint has a chance to stand apart with a 5G Network based on 2.5 GHz. I’d like see them succeed on their own. I believe it can happen, but we’ll know soon either way. T-Mobile might call itself the uncarrier, but it may become the recarrier after merging with Sprint, if it hasn’t already in some respects.

    While I'll still be around in lurk mode, my job situation will be taking a turn for the worst and finances are about to be extremely limited, so I'm forced to discontinue my monthly contributions. On the converse, I've left a little donation of what I have left so it can still benefit S4GRU. When my situation improves, I'll go back to the automatic monthly contributions to take back my spot Take care! Yung aka blinky847

    If you have Tasker, I have a profile setup that I can share with you to block calls on Hangouts and CDMA from spoofed phone numbers that aren't in my address book. Just triggers a notification saying it was blocked. I can export it as a standalone apk too if you let me know your area code and exchange. I get several spoofed spam calls a day.

    I feel like this is one of things that if we say it more than three times it will happen.

    They are in Altice and Cox markets.... I’d love to see a deal made with RCN for the DC area, including areas of MD and VA. https://www.rcn.com/hub/about-rcn/where-we-service/dc-metro-service-areas/

    It’s great news! Also his mention about the thousands of strand mounts they’ve deployed as well. Good to know that 2CA or 3CA is on nearly every Band 41 Site. Hopefully they can accelerate the Band 41 Site upgrades. This was a very detailed report!

    For those that think that T-mobile going into the fall and be successful in the high band auction, they are delusional. The fact of the matter is the reason why they were successful in the 600mhz was due to Verizon and T sitting out something that will not happen with the next auctions. Also, Verizon is telling phone manufacturers to put the 3.5ghz radios in their products by year end which tell me Verizon will go after the 3.5ghz band with a vengeance. There are only 150 MHz in the 3.5ghz, cable companies, Verizon, AT&T, and Google want a piece of it. These companies that I mentioned have deep pockets and Tmobile will just be bringing a knife into a gun fight. Sprint should be deploying the massive MIMO radios everywhere while its competitors are busy with high band auctions.

    Mike, Confirmed via picture. https://imgur.com/a/ZWewf I'm connected to a Clear site with two 8T8R sites appearing in the neighbor cells. Couldn't get diagnostics before it dropped back to B26 on the DAS though. I'm in too much pain to walk back to the window and try again for diagnostics. - Trip

    I will be going back to Oneonta again this weekend but will be taking a different path through the catskills. I will be driving through Delhi Ny and I have a feeling I will find another temp site. The town has a small college so there is probably a lot of people visiting that have Sprint. It's the only carrier with no service in Delhi.

    As far as adding towers. Its third world for Sprint. They could totally own this market if they invested. On a Side note Aldi is coming into town

    LTE Band 13 in Humacao. My iPhone keeps switching between Open Mobile and Sprint. Data speeds are amazing. I usually was getting speeds below 1mbps on band 25.

    B25 10+5 CA is live in Kentucky. Should only be a matter of time until it is available in NYC.

    B41 is being deployed in the Alabama market at present. Albeit slowly. It's expected to pick up pace this quarter. It will be mostly Nokia MiniMacs and Small Cells with 2xCA. 8T8R's will still likely be used where high capacity is needed. Sent from my Pixel XL using S4GRU Mobile Site

    Unfortunately Wellington is still a bad spot for sprint. The service here in the West Palm area has not improved for the west region. There's still a 3G tower on Northlake and unfortunately service is slow in this part of west palm. My wife wants to go back to Verizon. I'm hoping to see some changes soon.
