  1. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    Until Sprint can at least deploy that third carrier it's gonna continue to be an issue. Densifying will help but capacity is really the issue since signal strength is usually good to excellent.
  2. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    It seems to be a lack of contiguous B41 spectrum in the northern part of the BX. Waiting for non-contiguous B41 to be deployed, I hear devices are being seeded as we speak. But in terms of small cells, Sprint has a sh#t ton already deployed in the Bronx.
  3. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    Went shopping at Bay plaza mall today and not having that 3rd carrier in the Bronx is not really doing Sprint any favors in really high traffic locations. This was first time in a really long time that I've seen Sprint struggle in NYC. TMobile had a very similar experience to Sprint. My sister's Verizon line on the other hand was running awesome. It's all about location.
  4. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    It would make sense to start with Clear sites. BTW in this area, I'm usually hitting between 40-60mbs during the day.
  5. Interesting interview with VP of Technology at Sprint. Even offers some insight on Massive MIMO hardware being software upgradable to 5G. http://www.telcotransformation.com/author.asp?section_id=401&doc_id=738760&&linkId=45552982&linkId=45592891#Cloud
  6. They didn't give an exact date, but they mentioned sometime in the Spring.
  7. Looks like Sprint is a Microsoft/Qualcomm partner for those awesome looking always connected laptops coming.. 22 hours on a single charge(Qualcomm Soc) connected to Sprint B41 sounds awesome! https://www.qualcomm.com/news/releases/2017/12/05/qualcomm-launches-technology-innovation-advancements-always-connected-pc
  8. Quick rundown of UBS Conference with Tarek Robbiati -70% POP on B41 -50% of Towers have B41 -Adding a couple thousand Macro sites -Making all sites Triband is key -Massive MIMO will be deployed extensively compared to other carriers -Full access to Altice backhaul to deploy small cells (seems limited to their footprint) No Permits needed, quick to market deployment and best price. -reiterated increase in Capex between 5 and 6B for 2018 -Improving Customer service -Increase in prices (but still be the least expensive of all carriers)
  9. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    Camera just got an update that seems to finally address most quality/speed issues and throws in portrait mode.
  10. You do realize that you can upgrade at 12 months. Both consumers and Sprint benefit from this, and the only reason Sprint will be able to offer crazy deals on certain devices (Like they're doing with the essential phone, $145 after pay off) I personally think lease to own is a huge win win for consumers and Sprint despite that really clickbate article.
  11. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    Twitter might give you better results.
  12. Essentially a sprint exclusive.

    I think you guys should get in contact with folks at essential since they are very receptive to user feedback. They have hosted multiple AMAs on Reddit.
  13. Seems Big Red and The Deathstar have full control of the Black Friday 96% off "Spectrum Sales"
