  1. Yes, that's nothing new. They moved the LTE over to the Sprint PLMN, but left the SID alone. Additional downside--no way to ID 1X 800. - Trip
  2. Don't know. I was barreling down the highway at the time I took the picture, and I don't usually do speed tests anyway. But considering the available speed used to be zero, I'm going to say it's decent, sure. On my way home today, I'm going to take a long route to check on some more sites I don't usually go by. Expect the Premiere map to fill in some after I get home. (Also, I'm amused that with yesterday's update to the Sprint coverage map, the Red House tower that's on the air is now missing from the map along with the Hat Creek tower, while the Sugar Hill site that had no antennas two weeks ago is still present.) - Trip
  3. https://imgur.com/XLbo6lo This is what happiness looks like. The last major gap on US-15 in the nTelos expansion area is now filled. - Trip

    It always amazes me how often people say, "I don't have a problem, therefore, the problem does not exist." - Trip
  5. I would imagine that the 1X 800 carrier will linger for a long time, even if the rest of the 1X/EV-DO in PCS goes away. There's not much else you can do with that sliver of spectrum. - Trip
  6. There are clearly some issues with that map, but you're right, western MD does look good and like they're planning to cover it well. Looking at the current Sprint coverage map in voice view, it looks like two or three new sites might be up and running already along I-68. (If not, then they might be coming very soon.) - Trip
  7. So the press release lied when it said existing customers could get in on it. Got it. - Trip
  8. I saw the fine print. It's what was missing from the fine print that has me concerned. - Trip
  9. So it says the $22/mo price is for a "limited time." Does that mean that the price itself goes up, or that it's locked in, but only available for a limited time? When it says it's available to existing customers, does that mean that I can just change my plan to the new Unlimited Plus as I am, or do I also have to upgrade devices? Also, do any BYOD devices support Calling Plus/Wifi Calling? Lots of unanswered questions. - Trip

    Official Magic Box discussion thread

    Out west, where houses are made of stucco and signals can't get inside, the Magic Box would allow you to essentially place a relay in a window to get signal through that would otherwise be blocked by the stucco. Seems pretty useful to me. - Trip

    Yes, but that doesn't constitute "fighting." Moreover, there was no requirement for them to do so. - Trip

    Not clear what you're talking about here. The TV stations are being compensated for their moves, and that work is on-going. Many have been desperate to move earlier, rather than later, to get a hold of the new equipment as soon as they can. Phase 1 of the transition hasn't arrived yet, and already about 25 TV stations have moved. - Trip

    Why not add a T-Mobile section?
