    4G Information
  1. Mobile hotspot in Extended LTE

    Just remember to use responsibly. You may receive a strongly worded letter from Sprint if you use a ton of Data while roaming.
  2. Just remember that data roaming agreements always change. USCC may not be counted today, but could it could be in the future (Western Kansas for example was counted as native, then as pure roaming, then as Extended Network). Keep this in mind before changing plans. 100 MB may not be enough after the next roaming negotiations.
  3. Network Vision/LTE - Houston Market

    Agreed. These new uploads are quite terrible and very noticeable. They should have waited until they got B25+B41 CA figured out to pull this stunt. I'm getting sub 100 kbps speeds in a lot of places.
  4. [Proposed] Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Even if they do announce a merger, there are still many hurdles to jump through. I have a funny feeling thay this gets blocked by the justice department. This is a job killer, plain and simple.
  5. Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Especially since it's not his property. I'm sure Sprint doesn't appreciate this.
  6. iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    Of course it's going to be better. Nexus 6P B41 2CA vs. iPhone 8 B41 3CA & B25 2CA. It's not a fair comparison.
  7. There's no map, but we do know that Sprint doesn't allow AT&T LTE roaming inside most major markets and the counties surrounding them. Sprint handsets just won't connect to AT&T in cities such as New York, Dallas, or LA. With Connecticut being so small, chances are that your county is too close to Hartford. You'll probably have to drive North into Vermont before you see any AT&T.
  8. Just a heads up, there is no data roaming in major metro areas and the counties that form it's MSA. CDMA data roaming on Verizon is just about dead and it's only used for voice now. AT&T LTE works, but once you cross certain county lines, you're SOL. Also, certain services/sites are blocked by Sprint (mostly videos). Sprint should update it's data maps to better reflect the new LTE roaming agreement with At&t.
  9. T-Mobile LTE & Network Discussion V2

    Ping is too low and upload is too high for this to be on LTE. This has to be a fake.
  10. [Proposed] Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    At&t buying Dish? Not a chance! Now if Dish were to divest their unused spectrum, then that's a different story.
  11. It should be a top priority. Upload is very important as more and more people upload pictures, videos, and host live streams on social media. Those UL speeds reflect this. Too many people uploading junk to the internet. Personally, I don't get the need for people to have their lives displayed 24/7. But I'm sure I'm in the minority...now get off my lawn.
  12. Have you ever been to one of their stores? It's so bloody annoying. The Apple Store is one of the reasons I can't own an Apple phone. Walk in for a purchase, and the blue shirts will swarm you. Walk in for a repair, and they'll avoid you like the plague. And maybe this is just me, but every store I've been to just rubs me off as smug. If you need your phone serviced you have to make an appointment, which at times can take up to a week. Sure, you can always mail it in, but that means being without a phone for over a week and a half. With Google and Fi, they'll just overnight you a replacement for warranty claims. There's no taking time off your day to drive to a crowded shopping center and losing time waiting for them to service your phone.
  13. Google has done the same for their phones (Nexus/Pixels). And they don't have the annoying stores where you are forced to make an appointment and wait for a repair. Google just replaces your phone for even the smallest of issues.
  14. You said the prices have gone up for the last couple of years but this is the first year the base model has seen a price hike. It went up from 649 to 699.
