    Xperia XZ2 Compact

    Low chance it will arrive on Sprint without B25 support, unfortunately.

    3G Shutdown

    An unannounced 3G shutdown would definitely cause problems for a lot of customers, as outdated as they may be!

    New Verizon MVNO

    "Blurry mess" is hugely exaggerated. 480p is completely adequate on my iPhone 7 - most people will probably never know the difference. I just set Youtube to 480p and it looks crisp, I can barely tell the difference between 1080p and 480p.

    Sprint & T-Mobile Roaming Agreement

    Roaming is only for when there is no native coverage at all from your carrier.

    Sprint & T-Mobile Roaming Agreement

    AFAIK, PRL tells the phone what it can roam on regardless of the technology used.
  6. 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!!
  7. 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?

    iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    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!
  10. A ground mount B25-only site near Endicott is spitting out 10x10 now as well. Sweet! Looks like it’s everywhere.
  11. 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)
  13. 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.

    Official Magic Box discussion thread

    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.
