  1. It would also be awesome to get the same carriers from an 8T8R site, which should use the standard GCI layout to earfcn.
  2. I imagine coverage is aimed at the US 52 area. It would be nice if they also took over Logan county from Sprint.
  3. I believe this is by Cellcom, a Wisconsin based carrier. Marquette Michigan is not yet included. These areas include locations where Sprint through Clearwire had WiMax sites, the only 4G in the UP for many years. Extended LTE may not have all the Sprint features, but counts as regular data usage towards your plan. This should mean regular LTE speeds.
  4. Many parts of the UP in Michigan now show extended LTE (perhaps done earlier). Some b41 in Columbus OH metro proper is added plus some Granville, but most outlying b41 done in the last year or so remains MIA. Dayton still outdated.
  5. Same can be said for many new bands. As long as there still is movement on some portions of the border I advise patience, as difficult as it may be. I do wish Sprint would be more forthcoming, but action is best. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
  6. They would likely want it in markets where they are short of spectrum (at least low band spectrum). Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
  7. Or T-Mobile, especially since they now would not have to buy it of AT&T. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk

    Still occasionally getting blocked despite using latest Tapatalk. Inconvenient, irritating, but able to work around.
  9. There was a test version of a similar product for IOS but you had to be jailbroken. Field test mode would give similar info. Sometimes you had to change font for all to display. Somewhat flakey. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
  10. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    pics please

    Far less frequent. Had one issue yesterday. Might be multiple devices with varying IPs may be the issue for me. Switching from Sprint to WiFi, load balancing etc. Sent from my LG-LS997 using Tapatalk
  12. SignalCheck Beta Crew Forum

    You have to talk to a knowledgeable manager and show them your Signal Check Pro screen. Typically hidden in back and they generally won't take a picture of it. I then check CMDA to see if it is an Airave. DkoellerWX likely knows all these tricks. PS: Sprint is not unique about using signal devices in their stores. I have also seen AT&T and Verizon do the same. I have not been in a T-Mobile store for a decade, although I have referred people to them (I always go with whatever works well in needed areas).
  13. We have seen a bunch of permits from Sprint, so the light has moved from red to yellow. When we see work occurring, we will say the light is green.
  14. Sprint does have its secret projects. I thinks Sprint ends up exaggerating enough on its own, primarily due to changed priorities given limited funding. Therefor I am primary focused on what the guy in charge of the money says. And even that is limited to the areas where they figure they can gain market share.
  15. Neighborhoods mentioned by the CFO to me means expansion for suburban sprawl. The last time Sprints network overall was expanded with new sites was back when Clearwire was putting in Wimax sites - and even that was not allowed to finish (thus leaving coverage gaps). Even areas with no population growth have continued to expand. Growth in the south and west and places like Washington DC, Minneapolis, Columbus have outpaced the Sprint network. B26 LTE 800 helped but more needs to be done. When people arrive in their new neighborhood they should see good Sprint signal, else they might change carriers. Waiting several years means lost customers. Getting people to return is hard work and often not possible.
