  1. This video has a couple of good shots in comparison to 8t8r. Quite amazing how small the footprint is for Massive MIMO in comparison to 8t8r.

    Network Vision/LTE - Central and South Jersey Markets

    Thinning of EVDO.. Autocorrect can be pretty annoying.

    Im assuming you mean "less" but yes, thinking of PCS.

    10x10 B25 carriers coming online in Middletown NJ. Also 3xCA in and around town. Speeds regularly over 80mb+
  5. Im certain Sprint will be the ones pushing for this considering they have the equipment deployed to support this, and its probably random licenses scattered in most places making it less useful for other carriers.

    Probably still in testing. Give it some time while they integrate both networks.

    Actually I thought PLMN controlled the Carrier String info.

    Pretty sure it's native signal now(even SCP displays Sprint B13 due to GCI). Maybe devices havent been updated to reflect this change yet. What speeds are you seeing? Also check your roaming alotment to confirm it's not affecting it.
  9. @AndroidPolice But running anything in VM just doesn't feel quite right, no matter how much hardware acceleration is involved in VM session.

    If they are non-contiguous no choice but to do CA.

    I find that they do it in clusters. So hopefully it will spread fairly quickly. But I also found that they are more picky about which clusters of 10x10 they are bringing up.

    Nice! YUP!

    Note 9 rumor thread.

  14. Could this site be a satellite fed backhaul? Considering its such a tiny town. (According to 2010 Census only 3K people) Pretty cool to see LTE in the sticks tho.
  15. @SprintCTO Dr. Saw, any clue when NYC might start to see 4x4MIMO and 256QAM. More concerned with areas that lack 3x… https://t.co/iKBVhxzTIK

    Pre-war NYC apartments are almost always built with similar materials.. Brick outside, plaster and wood inside and 9-10ft ceilings. Very typical NYC pre war building.

    I live in a six story NYC apartment building built in the early 1900's. The MB is located on the 3rd floor, signal works on half of the 1st floor, the whole 2nd and 3rd floors and 4th, covers most of 5th floor and some parts of the 6th floor. As a bonus also covers the garage behind the building which was pretty important for me as it was where B41 signal was marginal. So without question it totally transformed B41 in my building. As a side note, it took days and days of tinkering to find the best location. Needless to say, not only am I happy with it, so are my Sprint subscribing neighbors (I know of at least 10 in my building) With that said, my neighborhood is only running 2xCA and there are a ton of Sprint subs so speeds drop below 5mb during peak times. But off peak now hover 10mb+ all throughout the building. Where as Tmobile is non existent inside here Verizon is decent and ATT works but super slow. So I am satisfied.

    Something is definitely not right I have an MB and it covers 4 floors in my apartment building and I connect solidly, it destroys any wifi I've ever seen. But Sprint is also awesome in NYC so there's that.
  19. I'm talking primarily about download speeds. Uploads speeds are not easily saturated in the real world, so nowhere near as important to the average user (believe me, if every user downloaded between 2-4mb it would rarely ever be an issue). Most poor upload issues arise from weak signal rather than capacity. So even 5Mhz slice of 1900 on the upload will help tremendously. The nice thing about having TDD+FDD is that they can continue to add capacity thru TDD and FDD can stay the same to keep the upload speeds at a generally useful level , think 10x10 PCC, so about 20mb on the upload while the download continues to increase.
  20. The true winner will be B25 as PCC + B41 as SCC CA. Best of both worlds.
  21. In my opinion Seattle is somewhat notable because its T-mobile's home turf, and they are doing this without B26 which means you probably drop to 3G deep indoors, and that can drag average speeds down quite a bit. So site location and density is of the upmost importance. Not to mention, its a sample of a market that mostly relies on midband/high band spectrum which will be the bread and butter of networks of the future.

    In certain markets Sprint has over 200Mhz of spectrum, so it could totally be possible. But my hope is that they use as much of that for mobile as possible.
