  1. You guys underestimate Sprints market share in central Fl. It's big and most of these towers don't have b41. Finding a b41 tower is like playing where's Waldo.
  2. One on Archer where previously I could not pick it up. 3xCA too. The other is 441 north where there was no B41 there either.
  3. Could you imagine 4x4 mimo, 256 qam 3xCA b41 and 15mhz b25 all aggregated? Well here it helped on upload but download is still under 1mbps on a large amount of towers. I see 3 permits for Sprints new 2500ghz/800mhz Antenna. But it's taking a long time for them to do a upgrade. Been sitting since December.
  4. Jacksonville has b41 on like 50% of towers. I was talking about where I live. I did see 2 new b41 towers online in Gainesville Fl though.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    That's if Sprint follows through with the plan. I remember everyone saying that Sprint would be done with 2.5ghz before T-mobile even started deploying 600mhz. T-Mobile already has deployed hundreds of sites basically 2 years in advance. That's how you do it. Not wait 5 years after you get spectrum to decide now you want it nationwide like Sprint did. Sprint is simply to slow with the upgrades and I don't think that's up for debate. Point is I think from a network side of things a merged carrier will make things happen much faster. Rebranding or not. They did it with metro and they can do it with Sprint.
  6. It's funny to read this 5 years in the future to see how band the b41 strategy backfired

  8. Its good but they are still moving really slow to me. B41 has been around for 5 years. It should have been done. I have 5 permits in Ocala. Three in December and two in Feb. None of them as of today have been touched. They all expire in June and August. In comparison T-Mobile filed a permit to get on a Sprint tower three weeks back and they finished the whole tower last week. If Sprint is serious they need to be moving at speeds like that. I already count 4 new TMobile towers here. Sprint added 2 new towers two years ago. Granted Sprint has better tower density than most carriers in the city limits but that lack of capacity makes the network terrible. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  9. Sprint on the other hand is 98% of towers with b25 10mhz, b26 5mhz and some still 5mhz b25. No 4x4 mimo, no 256 qam, no CA. It's like Sprint is 3 years in the past. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  10. On At&t they were but very recently they added b66. Here in Ocala they now run 10mhz of band 12, 30 and 66. 5mhz of band 5 15mhz of band 2 with b2, 5 and 12 on basically every tower and alot of towers with b66. Also lots of 4x4 mimo and 256qam and 4xCA. At&t is great here. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  11. Good to see. I see some activities in Tallahassee, St Augustine but Gainesville and Ocala is minimal. St Augustine is honestly not good for Sprint. All of these areas have one thing in common. Almost no B41 towers at all. Surviving on b25 10mhz and b26 5mhz without 4x4 mimo, 256qam and almost no B41 in 2018 is difficult. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  12. Network speed is holding them back. They need a little push. 15mhz b25 on every tower and more towers getting b41 equipment should fix this. It's all about how fast they are willing to move. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  13. That tower does well most of the time but not this good so I had to post it. [emoji16] Now if we can get these other non b41 towers going. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  14. @SprintCTO tested @Sprint in : 134.Mbps using https://t.co/ye8wECIqef #opensignal #speedtest https://t.co/ORJvJSjkhJ

  15. I wish I could agree but I just took a speed test of a band 25 10mhz tower but I won't post it do to da rulez. Here is the signal though readlly good signal. 0.51 down and 0.48 uplink and this is not the only tower. Trust me when I tell you upload needs to increase. I can literally see the tower across the street and had to use a hotspot to post this. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  16. Technically they still are not. Until their upload and downloads are the fastest at least. They have the power to do so. With TD and FDD LTE CA and TD LTE uplink CA they can catch up. Sprint just needs to get to work at a much faster pace than they are going. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  17. Most people there were on b41 so b25 at 15mhz thrived Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  18. As someone who lives right by a 15mhz b25 market I can tell you it's great. At Disney world it is more reliable than B41 in upload with speeds in the 15-25mbps range and matches it in download most of the time and that's without 4x4 mimo and 256qam. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  19. I don't think it's a big deal for 2 reasons. The first reason is Sprint is barely faster and I would be willing to bet T-mobile still has much higher upload speeds so when rootmetrics comes out TMobile would still be faster. The second reason is Sprint has been fast in Seattle for years now. If they took a much worse market like Savannah GA, Charleston SC, New Orleans, Memphis ect and brought them to #1 or #2 then I would be impressed.

  21. So every carrier is there already? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  22. Verizon has been doing 3 antenna towers too. I have yet to see one but they have been reported. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  23. Looks like a Sprint GMR site. I would say it's TMobile but I'm not sure they are starting to rollout 3 antenna set ups but the equipment looks different than this one. Maybe a different vendor. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  24. Is Sprint actively deploying these now or will it start soon? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
