  1. It's kind of funny seeing the other 3 carriers on the big tower, then little Sprint off to the right. The picture speaks volumes. :-) Hey, we're trying!!
  2. Wow, nice find. This isn't marked anywhere, not even as a future site... And it must be a full-build if it's B26. Interesting!! It looks like you were pretty close, were there any towers nearby?

    If anyone installs the 11.4 public beta, let us know if the carrier updates to a version later than 32.0.

    Happy birthday

    I hope your birthday is within 1% as good as last year's. Happy birthday!
  5. A ground mount B25-only site near Endicott is spitting out 10x10 now as well. Sweet! Looks like it’s everywhere.
  6. 3Mhz won't affect coverage at all, right? Just max speeds?

    Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    Crossposting from Reddit.... Cliff's notes: Gf's brother called to exchange his Airave 3 LTE last night and was informed that Sprint discontinued it on March 5th 2018. They are encouraging customers to use Wi-Fi calling instead. Is this true? EDIT: It's true! No more Airave 3. This leaves a notable gap before VoLTE is enabled, but shouldn't be much of an issue if you have a modern device this Fall. (Wi-Fi calling/VoLTE should eliminate the need for CDMA)
  8. I think the whole Binghamton market now has 10x10 B25 enabled on full builds. Pulled down a nice 40+Mbps speedtest in Endwell, NY last night on a B25/26 only site. This is new as of the last week or two. Once the GMOs are upgraded to full-builds (should be this year if Sprint sticks to their timeline) then we will have B26 on every site. Most of NY is covered in GMO sites along the highways. They did an amazing job converting these all to B25 LTE in the last six months though, it was a very quick transition once they started. We can finally say that most of NYS is LTE now.

    Official Magic Box discussion thread

    iPhone is stating 8290 for the EARFCN when outdoors on B25, confirmed with another 40+Mbps speedtest.

    I hadn't entertained the idea that they might have flipped on 10x10. That's what it must be, if the MB is picking it up! Historically my market has had a ~30Mbps cap on B25, so I'm assuming it used to be 5x5.

    B25 2xCA 10x10 works through my MB now that it's been activated in my market. Pulling down 45Mbps.
  12. Owego, NY got B25 2xCA turned on, this happened within the last week it seems. Pulling down 40-45Mbps now! My Magic Box gets me 30-35 indoors as well now at work, where it used to cap out around 20Mbps. I was told B41 was scheduled within 6mo in January, but this is a nice stopgap solution. :-) Edit: Seems like this might be B25 10x10 now, not CA

    Have other Sprint users ever been on your MB and had calls work successfully? Can you test with a different handset on your account?

    The Magic Box only broadcasts LTE. I'm not sure how it could have affected calling on your Note 5. (Note 5 doesn't support LTE Calling Plus, as far as I can tell) Perhaps eCSFB isn't working through the MB to tell your phone to switch to 1x from LTE to receive the call?
  15. It seems like it would be so easy to make coverage amazing down there, too. It's totally flat. Band 26 should go for miles! It's confusing why this market has been neglected when there really aren't that many sites to hit at all.
