    Network Vision/LTE - Oklahoma Market

    It looked like something is going right with the tower on Southeast 15th and Air Depot. It's one of the ones with three panels: a dual band, a 1900, and a 2600 mini macro per sector. Sent from my N9560 using Tapatalk

    Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    The low band is only overloaded when it is improperly being used for capacity rather than coverage. This is especially absurd when the provider has more than enough spectrum in the high band and can drop a cheap mini macro in the spots where low band is taking a beating. Too bad all the mini macro equipment is going on already over spaced macro sites rather than filling in the numerous trouble spots in my market. Sent from my SM-T713 using Tapatalk

    QC 2/3 power bank that supports incoming QC/USB-C charging?

    There is a newer QC 3.0 version of the Chotech that is higher capacity in the same form factor. Something interesting I have noticed is that it will charge at up to 2.6 amps from a non quick charge adapter, which is basically the same speed it will charge from a quick charge port (9v 1.5a). There is no USB C port on it though, just a lightening input for iPhone users. Sent from my SM-T713 using Tapatalk

    LG G4 User Thread (Was: Rumor Thread)

    For anyone experiencing the battery drain issue I dida factory reset and that solved it. Kind of a pain in the rear to do, but thankfully I can make it far longer that 10 hours before the battery dying. As of right now I'm at 45 hours unplugged with 2.5 hours of screen on time.

    Dual Band MIMO deployment

    It makes a lot more sense if this is basically warranty service being provided by Ericsson. I was operating under the impression that Sprint was paying for the swap when it would have been a much better investment to deploy band 41 and then worry about upgrading the band 25 equipment later.

    Dual Band MIMO deployment

    Regardless, one additional CDMA carrier isn't going to make a difference in a network that is not experiencing voice congestion nor is one additional EV-DO carrier going to alleviate data congestion. Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk

    Sometimes trying to understand Sprint logic makes my head hurt. Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk

    Dual Band MIMO deployment

    Sprint sold 10MHz of their PCS B license to deathstar back in 2009. 6 CDMA carriers is all that can be deployed on PCS. So split mode would not be a bottleneck ever unless they acquired more PCS spectrum. Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk

    Dual Band MIMO deployment

    I think I have only seen a couple of these setups, since the substantial completion of phase one the upgrades came to a screeching halt here. No band 41 and the remaining unupgraded sites haven't been touched. So I kinda lost hope and stopped paying attention. Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk

    Dual Band MIMO deployment

    It baffles me that they would do this, the CDMA network here doesn't need extra capacity but the LTE network is seriously over burdened. Band 41 would do a lot more good than throwing up another PCS panel. Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk

    Lord knows we could use the capacity.

    Dual Band MIMO deployment

    I recently noticed a new panel on each sector of this Sprint site, it was already broadcasting band 25 and 26 prior to the addition. Is this part of the MIMO upgrade or is it done to minimize interference compared to CDMA and LTE being on the same antenna?
  13. Grrrrr, I still have exactly 0 band 41 towers in my market. I recently got back from Tampa and was able to get >100mbps on a CA enabled site there. I'm about to throw a virgin in a volcano so maybe I'll get some of that sweet aggregated love. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk

    LG G4 User Thread (Was: Rumor Thread)

    Thanks to Samsung borking my S5 and the S6 copying the worst "features" of the iPhone I have officially joined the ranks of the G4 users. So far I'm liking it, but it will take a little getting used to. I do really wish they had kept the screen at 5" 1080p and just let a separate model fill the role of 1440p phablet. Built in wireless charging would have been nice as well, I'm not willing to sacrifice the removable battery and memory card slot to get it though.

    Samsung Galaxy S5 User Thread

    Consider yourself blessed if your phone is still on 4.4. I ended up replacing my S5 with an LG G4 because the 5.0 update borked it so badly.
