  1. No, people are incredibly stupid, I assure you. It's not even debatable, unfortunately.
  2. Oh, no no no. Unfortunately, you're giving humans far too much credit. Sadly, you're wrong; people are that stupid and even orders of magnitude more so. I'm astounded everyday at the stupidity that abounds all around me.
  3. Just what we already discussed. The launch of massive MIMO in cities like Atlanta (where I live). It's just awesome that it's finally coming to fruition.
  4. Exciting things are afoot. But I am also lucky enough to be in the first wave.
  5. The key takeaway is that Sprint is launching massive MIMO NEXT MONTH. Did ya'll catch that?
  6. Yeah, the note about the microwave. 10 years?! That's gangster!
  7. I'm more concerned that whoever wrote that note is seriously scaling back on employee break room capex!

    Galaxy S9 Series user thread

    Yeah i never buy anything when it first comes out, least of all electronics of any sort. The reasons are obvious and overwhelming. Let the others suffer the bugs for your own eventual, calculated benefit.

    How to contact someone at Sprint

    That's really interesting. I think I understand why though.
  10. Mine yields us 15-20 near it and 5-10 in the deepest recesses of our master bath. Before it was 3G in the bathroom and nearly unusable band 26 in the same room the MB now sits in (1-1.5 mbps).

    [Teaser] The 9th Galaxy Arrives Early - The Galaxy S9

    This is what I've been waiting for. Oh! And the centrally located fingerprint scanner! Can't forget about that.

    Network Vision/LTE - Atlanta/Athens Market

    Glad this thread is so quiet. It only speaks to the excellent quality of the Sprint network in our beloved yet often bizarre metropolis. But I actually have a point or, rather, something I'd like to share. I was just at Kroger recently on Howell Mill near I-75 and was waiting outside in the unusually chilly weather for my Uber when I noticed via SCP that I was on a second band 25 carrier. Now, 2 things to note: 1. Atlanta has had a second band 25 carrier live for at least 18 months so this wasn't immediately unusual and 2. Atlanta has such widespread and healthy band 41 deployment that I rarely see anything but. The network is just that damned good. No, the odd part was that when I went into my "enginerring" l screen, it indicated that carrier aggregation was indeed active. Like I said, I've been on a second b25 carrier in this city many times before but I had never noticed them being aggregated. See evidence below. My feeling is that band 41 was so widely deployed here before that they felt no great rush to enable b25 CA in this market. In many other previously band 41 starved markets like Lexington, KY, band 25 CA has been live for well over a year, likely even longer. Those areas needed the extra capacity until those band 41 mini macs could rise to the challenge. They now very much have, by the way. But now that those smaller areas are finally getting widespread band 41 coverage, Sprint has seen fit to come back to the bigger areas like Atlanta and make great even better. At least that is my theory!

    Network Vision/LTE - Chicago Market

    I was thinking the same thing after I posted that. Using Chrome here. Interpretation is largely subjective. But there are more clear emojis for either emotion. Either way, those speeds kick ass. Here's an emoji that shouldn't be debatable: 😉

    It's definitely a "bummed" face. Maybe he just used the wrong face. Look closely at it.
