  1. Looks like Sprint and TMobile have jumped on the bandwagon. Verizon was the first with free data for the Olympics.
  2. Interesting! Guess he finally got hired! He typically spends his time trying to drive traffic to his Cellular Insights blog... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Milan doesn't work for Ookla. He's just a TMobile schill. Remember his Intel vs Qualcomm iPhone modem articles? He conveniently forgets to mention how he's sponsored by Qualcomm and has a working relationship with them. People shouldn't take him seriously, unless he's quoting crowd-sourced data. His "laboratory" tests mean nothing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. They don't? That's exactly what they're doing... Especially with the upcoming FirstNet build. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Mobilitie Sites

    https://boston.maps.arcgis.com/apps/View/index.html?appid=968bcd0da75f44cca75298153b33ac7f Here's a map of Mobilite sites in Boston.
  6. Network Vision/LTE - Boston Market (all of Massachusetts)

    Most of them aren't (yet) Sprint is on the Extenet oDAS nodes down Boylston + Newbury, but the rest of them are typically Verizon and T-Mobile. All the Extent nodes in Brookline are Verizon-only. You can tell by looking on the side. They have Verizon stickers on them. The North End Extenet nodes are Verizon too. Extenet + Verizon met with the residents a few months ago to propose their plans. The majority of Crown Castle nodes in Dorchester/Mattapan are from MetroPCS, so T-Mobile.
  7. Network Vision/LTE - Boston Market (all of Massachusetts)

    https://boston.maps.arcgis.com/apps/View/index.html?appid=968bcd0da75f44cca75298153b33ac7f The Boston Small Cell map just got updated with Mobilite locations (Dark Blue dots). Should be seeing them deployed soon.
  8. Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    Correct. And Verizon has deployed 20x20 B2 and B4 across the entire NYC metro area. Only EVDO/1x left is on B5. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. T-Mobile LTE & Network Discussion V2

    Looks like T-Mobile already has B71 up in some areas, even areas that I frequent up in the Northeast. The timeframe is pretty impressive! https://www.reddit.com/r/tmobile/comments/76m88t/b71_sighting_in_cheyenne_with_screenshots/
  10. iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    Does anyone have an Apple Watch with LTE? Can you make calls using Sprint's network?
  11. Network Vision/LTE - Boston Market (all of Massachusetts)

    I feel like we might go to the same barber... haha
  12. Verizon shrinking coverage in Maine.

    USCC is also an option for those customers. They have fantastic coverage up in Maine.
  13. Good for them I guess... Apparently Consumer Reports recently pulled their recommendations for entire lineup due to poor quality and most of the comments on Surface subreddit seem to show similar issues. I have no idea, they wouldn't give me one when I asked
  14. The workstations hooked up to the MRI/PET/etc are PC. We use Macs in the reading room. Many of my fellow radiologists use Retina MacBooks (with dock + ext. monitor) and/or 4k/5k iMacs in our offices. IT has testing Surfaces, but hardware reliability hasn't been the greatest...
  15. AppleCare has offered exactly what you want for years... https://support.apple.com/iphone/repair/service/express-replacement
  16. This is correct. In the medical world, I prefer Apple hardware. For example, the software I use to read scans is far better optimized for iOS/OS X than PC/Androids. I've used Windows desktops + laptops with high-res displays and there hasn't been a single one without image scaling problems across the OS. This is important because size + shape is used as a method of diagnosis. Another example is as simple as looking through MRIs on my phone. If I'm quickly flipping through the scans, Android phones typically can't keep up. There is lag and choppiness. I experience none of this with an iPhone or iPad. These arguments are a waste of time. Why do PC/Android guys feel so strongly against Apple's ecosystem? If people want to call me "tech illiterate" and a "sheep" for using the best tools to diagnose my patients, so be it.
  17. You replied to the wrong post, but yes, you are correct about HTC. According to XDA, it seems that LG does not supply the newest Quick Charge adapter with the G5, etc. My point still stands with the likes of OPO and Motorola. Why not bash them for charging extra? Or is it cool to bash Apple for no reason at all these days?
  18. Interesting, but who else offers in-store replacements at the Genius Bar? Google + Pixel? Nope HTC? Nope Samsung? Nope LG? Nope Even a company as large as Samsung doesn't offer flat-rate screen replacements for their products. There's a price to pay for superior customer service. Why are we acting like Apple is suddenly doing something different?
  19. You seem very misinformed and quick to bash for no reason. How is this any different from what Android OEMs do? These phones typically don't come with the Dash charge or QuickCharge bricks. All of that costs extra. So it's ok for Samsung/LG/HTC/OPO/Motorola/etc to charge extra, but not Apple? Why the double standard?
  20. Verizon shrinking coverage in Maine.

    Meh, I don't think you understand how rural the state really is. Outside of Portland, Augusta, and Bangor (and all of their suburbs), there is no reason for 100+ mbps broadband. Spectrum recently took over Time Warner and bumped up the residential broadband speed tiers to 60/10 for normal residential accounts. Before that, it would max out at like 15/10 in the areas I frequented.
  21. Verizon shrinking coverage in Maine.

    Maybe this will finally force AT&T (and T-Mo/Sprint) to build-up their networks in Maine. Verizon and USCC have been the only two quality options for those who travel across the state regularly.
  22. Verizon shrinking coverage in Maine.

    This is interesting. The only two carriers in that area are USCC and Verizon. Maybe this foreshadows an upcoming roaming agreement between Verizon and USCC?
  23. Verizon shrinking coverage in Maine.

    Well, neither of them cover that part of Maine, so it wouldn't make sense for them to have a reaction. Maine is an odd state. Verizon/AT&T/Sprint/T-Mobile all strategically don't deploy service in parts of the state. T-Mobile says they will blanket the state with 600, but I'll believe it when I see it...
