    2 permits for small cells have surfaced in the last week in Springfield, and we have found small cells in Central Missouri and in St. Louis! Keep your eye peeled and report anything you find!

    Alltel was a very healthy company financially with very low debt that would have complemented Sprint's coverage. Alltel had approached Sprint repeatedly about a merger but Forsee was totally blind. Alltel finally gave up and sold itself to a hedge fund that used Alltel's borrowing ability to borrow the money for the buyout. So Alltel was heavy leveraged after the buyout but not before. Sprint was in perfect position to merge with them before the hedge fund buyout.

    See a new site outside of Macon, GA too, on 129 to the southeast.

    Looks like there might be a couple new sites online in Utah. Also, appears to be a new B41 protection site in Coffeyville, KS, and a clear conversion in Miami, OK.

    Wow! Bids already awarded in 5 states and work is already underway. There’s a renewed faith in Sprint especially since there’s major evidence work is being done. I really hope Sprint kicks ass this year and gets the LTE network together(coverage similar to or slightly larger than AT&T) and bash some heads and compete head to head with Verizon with 5G.

    And another interesting note, Sprint is 36 billion in debt with 4.4 billion in cash reserves, Verizon is 117 billion in debt with only 2 billion in cash reserves with at&1 156 billion with 50 billion in reserves and t-mobile 30 billion in debt with 1.6 billion in reserves.

    Great write-up by Dr. Saw on the difference that HPUE makes for Network Coverage and Speed: http://newsroom.sprint.com/new-hpue-report.htm?linkId=48356122

    I imagine it takes time for this information to flow across teams. I’m not sure what the lead time is for generating the Coverage Map updates, but perhaps that has something to do with it. If you’re aware of specific sites that are missing, you should mention it in a reply to /u/Craig-S (https://www.reddit.com/user/Craig-S) on the Sprint Subreddit in this current Coverage Map thread: /u/Craig-S is one of the people in charge of Sprint’s Coverage Map, and he’s participating in this thread. He also said about a month ago in an older Coverage Map thread that they were reviewing all of their processes:

    That was a map detailing the loss of a roaming partner years ago. Really no reason to bring it up now.

    It seems like Sprint has finally decided to roll out band 41 around Macon and Warner Robins; so far there are band 41 deployments on 3 existing sites in Macon and 1 in Warner Robins beyond the replacements for the old WiMax protection sites that went live a few months ago. For some reason, Sprint has also put band 41 mini-macros on the tower right by the intersection of US 23 and SR 18 near the Plant Scherer power station east of Forsyth... basically the middle of nowhere. All I can figure is they changed the tilt of the antennas to get some more range on band 25 and figured they'd need to fill in the coverage around the tower as a result.

    Yeah they have a lot. I’m praying they execute flawlessly. Crazy to think 5G is next year.

    I saw the debt load and available cash for Verizon and was shocked. With that in mind, I would believe Sprint should be able to deploy first and get further ahead on their 5G network. Hopefully this will propel Sprint in to a hefty #2 spot.

    I purchased the X and so far am pretty happy with it. There are a couple of things that could be improved ( but so far so good. The biggest reason I purchased the X is that my wife currently uses a 6 and I have a feeling that at some point, hopefully towards the end of 2018, the 6 will have an issue that will require a replacement. I can offer the X to my wife and purchase an X 2.0 version, hopefully with a larger screen.

    It's not different from tower to tower. TDD-LTE has very specific operating conditions. Every single site in an entire region must be configured in the same way or there would be major interference issues. If you are seeing large upload spikes, it is an error with your speed test app.

    Alright guys. Great news. I am at Whole Foods for lunch and I usually have full LTE here at Academy ans Wyoming. I only had two bars on my iPhone so I checked. I am connected to Band 41. Earfcn 39874 first sighting north of the uptown area for the northeast heights. Great news.

    It's bonds that will have set payment schedules and maturity dates. My guess is they're using this debt to pay off current debt that's about to come due. They've done it in the past.

    I love how much more active Sprint has been on Social Media; Dr. Saw and Craig-S especially!

    If you've got a rooted phone, you might try toggling the CDMA bands (class 1 is 1900 and class 10 is 1x800) in a app like network signal guru to see if one or the other is better for you. Some phones also have this ability through the data menu, but my experience with that method was nearly disastrous. The phone I tried toggling BC 10 on got stuck in a boot loop. The only way I could stop it was airplane mode as soon as it booted into android (before the radio became active) and reenabling BC 10.

    Yes and it's real. 30 MHz PCS B market. GCI ending is known in addition the center frequency is on 1955 of the 1950-1965 range which indicates a 10x10 carrier from 1950-1960 with 5 mhz left for CDMA on 1960-1965.

    You can always turn it off on your device if your area isn't ready yet. It's desperately needed in some markets though (which have the density to support it), as 1x is too congested as a result of thinning. It will be nice to be able to use my phone for calls again when I'm not on an Airave (dedicated 1x carrier), since currently I can't understand what people are saying most of the time because of such heavy compression.

    I just read on Android Central that Samsung pulled the Oreo update for the S8. I guess we'll all be waiting a bit longer now. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Found more. Covering an entire dead zone. Seem like nearby B25 site not getting B41. The proximity is just too close to Mobilitie SD90XS129F small cell which is less than 100 feet.
