  1. Verizon definitely has more LTE coverage than T-Mobile, although I think I’d say that within each provider’s footprint, T-Mobile provides LTE a greater percent of the time than Verizon. Sprint is not deploying any new 3G-only sites. All new sites from here on out are either full NV sites (1x/3G/LTE) or LTE-only.
  2. I do not believe so. Generally speaking, Sprint’s prepaid brands don’t have have access to data roaming.
  3. Network Vision/LTE - Chicago Market

    That’s bad data. The iPhone’s field test app is not generally reliable or accurate.
  4. Network Mapping

    I’m on iOS as well and I definitely agree. A lot of people here have androids, though, so I just wanted to make sure they were aware of their options.
  5. Network Mapping

    Sensorly, Rootmetrics and Cellmapper are all great.
  6. Yeah I’d like to see carrier aggregation where B26 is the primary carrier and B25 is used for supplemental downlink. This would be massively helpful in markets like Seattle where B25 can give me 8-10 mbps down at -122 to -124 dBm but upload is almost abysmal.

    I totally get it. The point I’m trying to make is that the way the company is run leaves a lot on the table. That being said, I do get that it’s a mission-critical network and that I should almost never expect monopolies like power companies to ever innovate. It’s just sort of sad to see what could be.

    Passing up the opportunity would be stupid on SoLINC’s part. Both parties would benifit greatly from spectrum sharing. But I understand what you’re saying — sometimes people are a little stubborn. What can you do 🤷‍♂️

  10. Great to hear about the improved coverage. The Sprint LTE/VZW 1x is interesting though. Maybe Tim or someone with more knowledge might be able to shed some light as to what’s happening there...
  11. The site I’ve been getting screenshots from is at the Montlake Blvd NE exit off 520. There are a few other sites in downtown Seattle that are broadcasting six carriers.
  12. Will do today. I was driving past the site at 60 mph in a car so that’s all I was able to grab last time.
  13. Here are a few Field Test screenshots from the 8T8R that’s broadcasting 6 carriers. I’ll head back tomorrow to grab more. https://imgur.com/a/SnNVc
