  1. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    I hope it is. The E4 + I'm using doesn't seem to do any B25 CA while my essential did with two 5x5 carriers. When I first connected to the 10x10 carrier yesterday I ran a speed test and the results were 5mbps on the download.

    do you know if a site visit is required for this type of update?

    2018 is really shaping up to be Sprints year, They're off to a great start. Can't wait for the fiscal 2018 year to start so they have more money to spend on the network.

    Don't know how I didn't see this. Glad to see I'm not the only one. Hopefully this is coming to NYC as well. This will help with VoLTE as well.
  5. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    that worked, but doesn't display bandwidth. pretty much shows everything that SCP shows. I only saw it on one site which im not near at the moment but it did hold for a while and even cycling airplane mode the phone connect to it again and SCP displayed 10x10 again. I am going to drive to the site again and do some more testing soon

    I believe we do as well, that's why I hopeful it's real. i think with that set up sprint can still have 3 voice carriers and 1 data carrier in the PCS spectrum. And then there is also the 1x800 voice carrier. Any idea how to access engineering screen on a moto E4 Plus. This phone has excellent RF reception by the way.

    i think Sprint might finally be reducing 3G for more LTE. I saw this on Long island but i think the spectrum assets are the same for LI and NYC. Not sure if this is a SCP error cause I've never seen it here before.

    This morning I no longer had access to Verizon roaming in the East River tunnel for the LIRR. Normally I have access to 1X the whole ride and sometimes 3G but I never have access to data. Only voice calls and texts go through. Still had no access as I took my 5:20 train home. I wonder if Verizon shut down the 3G in the tunnel or even in Penn Station. Or maybe just blocking roaming. Or maybe they are doing work. It was one of the plus side of having Sprint over AT&T or T-Mobile. I hope this isn't a permanent thing. Edit still no signal in the tunnel today. Brought a verizon phone with me and it had LTE the whole time. Turned it to 3G only and still had a signal. I hope Verizon roaming isn't ending yet.
  9. Network Vision/LTE - LA Metro Market

    Not really sure what to look for in LA but I have connected to a lot of B41 MM sites according to SCP. My guess is these replaced the Clear equipment because I haven't seen any clear sites. Any idea what the PCS spectrum is like here? Is it 5x5 in the G block and 10x10 in the A-F blocks? Or is the 10x10 I'm seeing a combination of 5x5 in the G block plus 5x5 in the C block Also I have yet to see any B26 here, I know there has been some sighting but I haven't had any. It would really come in handy here I am contently bouncing between very weak B41 to weak B25 to unusable 3G. When connected to B41 speeds have been great though. Multiple sites reach over 100Mbps during none peak hours and still over 30 during peak times. B25 on the other hand is anywhere between 3 to 10Mbps even on the 10x10 Carrier. Edit: Also noticed that Config 2 hasn't been turned on here yet. I am getting upload speeds over 9Mbps most of the time on B41

    Heading to San Diego tomorrow. I'll mostly be downtown but I'll be on the look out for small cells.

    Just left JFK Airport for LAX. Noticed that Sprint now has a DAS in Terminal 5. I recall them posting about it recently. While is only 2xCA it provided amazing signal and speeds. Here is the only and only speed test I took
  12. Network Vision/LTE - LA Metro Market

    I'll be flying into LAX tonight and I'll be reporting on the state of the sprint network there. I believe both Verizon and AT&T have tower in and around the airport. I know 2 to 3 years ago people on reddit.com/r/tmobile were reporting issues at the airport and t-mobile had 1 or 2 new sites on air in about 1.5 years on top of the parking garages. I also have a t-mobile sim so i'll be testing that as well but I believe its only 2xCA since its a moto e plus 4th edition.
  13. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    thats a pretty genius set up for big cities. you end up with more capacity than full build 3xCA site 60mhz vs 80mhz. You lose out on some range but in NYC where the network is so dense you don't need that range as much. You also lose out on max speed but I would take more capacity or top speed anyday. edit: and its probably alot cheaper as well
  14. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    is this the same base station equipment of a normal MM but with 8t8r antennas?
