  1. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    I found a Band 41 site in Brooklyn that is messed up. It's giving me pings of over 100ms and download speeds struggle to get over 1Mbps. I reported it in the My Sprint app and hopefully others have noticed and reported it too. Otherwise, download speeds have definitely increased across the board. I'm able to get up to 68Mbps in my house on Band 41 now.

  3. Network Vision/LTE - Boston Market (all of Massachusetts)

    The Configuration 2 update happened on Boston. Where I used to get 30Mbps down and 12Mbps up, I'm now getting 50 Mbps down and uploads are 6-7Mbps. I'll gladly trade the few megabits per second in upload for an extra 20Mbps on the download. That combined with the 2xCA Band 25 is giving me the experience we should've had all along on LTE. I'm rarely experiencing speeds slower than 15-20Mbps. Even on Band 26 I'm getting speeds in the high teens on Boston College's campus.

    I haven't experienced this yet, but it seems like there is an easy fix if you encounter it by going into your settings. The update will probably be re-released later this week.
  6. Samsung Galaxy S8 & Dual Sim/Duos

    I'm glad that the Samsung Messages notification stopped in the new update. Facebook's app still freezes while scrolling through back lot of comments or comments with media in them so convinced it's a problem with the app as opposed to Samsung. I reported it to Facebook so hopefully someone in the chain will onow how to fix it. For now I'm using the Facebook Lite app and it's working pretty well.

    That's quite a lot of evidence confirming the switch. The reason I'm so anxious for it is because it is one of the steps needed to achieve gigabit LTE. Now all we need is 4x4 MIMO and 256QAM on the download.
  8. Not just Sprint. Basically all of the carriers had sites that were down including MetroPCS and Cricket.
  9. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    I ask this a lot but has Sprint switched to Config 2 in NYC yet? That 86/5 speed test made me think they might have. I heard Washington D.C. recently switched to Config 2.

  11. He did say pretty clearly, "We're going to go towards a more traditional network buildout...as we plan to enhance dramatically the coverage that Sprint has today...using traditional macro deployment." This was about 12 and a half minutes into the interview.

    Exciting times ahead!

  14. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    Now if only NYC would get rid of MSG... It's an ugly building that takes up so much space in an already crowded area because of Penn Station and the soon to be mall and train station at the Farley Post Office Building.
  15. I usually overuse commas so I'm surprised that I missed one there.
