    Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    So I'm up and Westchester now and they've also increase the carrier size to a 10 x 10 band 25 for my work location

    Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    So that network wonkiness I noted the other day was them turning on Mini Marco site a lil further away. Was able to latch onto the signal for a bit this morning.

    Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    West Bronx. Kingsbridge, Marble Hill area. Other towers got the 5ghz second carrier a while ago. The main tower I personally receive never did. So a happy surprise this morning to see the 10x10!

    Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    It was just for a split second, as I noticed my network acting wonky last night. The main tower I connect to was upgraded to a 10x10 band 25 configuration, last night. it's not optimized to still as I have the problem connecting as it will drop to band 26 and stay there or band 41.

    Pixel 2 XL Preview/User Thread

    You forget about the blue tint as it does exist but your eyes definitely adjust! If I am being honest I prefer the size of the OG pixel in regard to weight balance in hand. I also miss the heft of my 7 plus the2 XL is really hollow feeling. Go to Verizon for yourself, to see a model before you make a decision!

    Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    So I just checked at I am usually on wifi in my home. But facing my macro tower this morning I got this https://imgur.com/8TUWIur, never pop close to 40 ever in the area. And uploads are consistently meh... Another link with higher upload but doesn't cross 8 up. speedtest https://imgur.com/gallery/bC8zM

    That's very generous. In less touristy areas I would say Sprint hasn't really paid much mind too. Parts of East Harlem. North west Bronx are lacking for sure. I frequent those area and always check to see if there is any progress being made and it's been stalled development for awhile. They changed the tilt of towers that use to receive band 41 signal and the best you can get in one place is overloaded 3g that particular area needs small cells badly if there isn't too be extended macro site deployment. I stopped reporting as there wasn't work being done. That was over a year ago sadly. It's a sport bar so fortunately they have wifi inside. That particular area is around 116th and first ave. If you ever go there check it for yourself.

    Not all towers have a second carrier still. I remember when it went live for some and never saw it go live for others as well. So it's probably based on network load for a particular area that got serviced and updated.

    I would like to see some more progress in the more residential areas of New York City boroughs. Seems things have kind of taken a slow progression. Haven't been able to report any new activity out this way.

    Pixel 2 XL Preview/User Thread

    Just got the devices myself and there is noticably blue tint at angle, and it definitely does crush the black in low light setting after about 35% and less. Other than that. None of the grain, and burn as others have experienced yet. I want to wait and see if the screen production improves before I contemplate RMA. As none of the other issues with speaker or call quality over the network.

    Huawei Nexus 6P (was [Rumor] Huawei Nexus phone?)

    I got mine replaced but it took being persistent. Maybe try another agent. As a side my 6p just got the latest ota September patch. So much prefer the 6p touch targets and such compared to the XL I just wish the Battey in the 6p was better...
