    Google Retiring Fusion Tables Dec 2019

    I got the same email. What a shame .
  3. I received the below email today about Google shutting down its Fusion Tables tool. I know many of us have and still use fusion tables for our market maps here on S4GRU. Looks like we've got a year to migrate to a new platform. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

  5. Have you ever been down there? Sprint's small cell deployment is paltry compared to AT&T and Verizon's C-RAN deployments.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    What about the 2500MHz RRHs?

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    The new T-Mobile is going to boil down to a neighborhood by neighborhood decision for Sprint customers, some of which will depend on what work gets completed by Sprint assuming merger is successful. I am assuming former Clear sites that do not get Triband upgrades are typically toast. Sites with more recent investments stand a better chance of surviving, assuming they are not co-sites. Of course all existing equipment could still be junked. 800 RRHs have the best odds, given they will likely be the last bastion of Sprint CDMA. We are seeing some 1900 firmware changes that would allow for more spectrum to be used for LTE that may affect these RRH's retention. I would also assume cabinets are toast or at least retrofitted. The main factor in keeping some of the equipment would be new equipment shortages and future 5G compatible replacements being needed in coming years. Network needs and leasing costs would be main individual site factors. I would think markets with a low Sprint Market share would lose the most Sprint sites while those with a large Sprint Market share would have better odds for unique Sprint site retention. Of course the FCC might mandate that VoLTE must cover all areas covered by Sprint CDMA, but this would mostly affect rural areas. I am also assuming that the new T-Mobile will start urban in the larger markets given T-Mobile's past history.

    Another issue that I've noticed, is that when I'm on Wifi calling I am unable to send text messages... This doesn't make any sense to me. Per SCP, it looks like I'm connected to 1x and wifi, but when I try to send a text message it simply states "Not sent. Tap to try again." When I tap this, it simply 'refreshes' and says the same thing. Anyone else have the same issue? I wonder if this is somehow MB related? I do have a MagicBox at home. With it being connected to 1x though, I wouldn't think I would be attached to the MB. EDIT: The confusion continues... I think Wifi Calling is like oddly NOT being enabled or something? I just turned on airplane mode, made a phone call. Very clearly noticed wifi-calling everywhere and then sent a text message. Went right thru... Something is weird.

    It is a bit more nuanced that that. They will use 10,000 of Sprint's sites that are not colocated or close to T-Mobile sites and add 10,000 more. They would probably reuse some of the network equipment (RRHs) and also some of the small cells. But I like the fact that he said that every citywide be analyzed as to what is the best integration strategy.

    Well this would be the logical path. Otherwise what’s the point https://www.bizjournals.com/seattle/news/2018/12/10/t-mobile-braxton-carter-sprint-takeover-strategy.amp.html Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    This alone is what would make me no longer consider an HTC device. The new Nokia brand devices from HMD are interesting but of course they do not work on Sprint.

    Weird I didn't get a notification from the Samsung Members app about a new update, but there it was glad the clock is fixed had to install Google's clock app which isn't as nice.

    Network Vision/LTE - Boston Market (all of Massachusetts)

    People never believed me when I mentioned Sprint's improving density and faster speeds. I still hope that they work on suburban density because there are areas where my phone switches between 1 bar of EVDO and 1 bar of LTE in Newton. They have been deploying small cells in Newton though since I did find one a few months ago but more would help.
  19. In recent testing by RootMetrics®, Sprint is #1 with the fastest download speeds in Boston.1 Indoor and outdoor testing was conducted during peak-usage hours during the day in the busiest areas of Boston. Samples were collected in iconic tourist areas, top travel destinations, business districts, retail shops, major entertainment areas, and other high-traffic areas. The end result is testing that shows how carriers perform in the busiest parts of Boston, and the results also evaluate how well networks are prepared for upcoming 5G and IoT deployments. Additionally, analysis of Nielsen drive test data shows Sprint has the most improved network in Boston with a 292% increase in download speeds year-over-year.2

    There's a new Beta update out today. It brings back the "close all" button for 3rd party launchers and is very, very snappy and fluid all around. Good updates in this Beta. Still have to try out the LTE calling on this one as the last version was flaky for me when I called my wife on LTE calling. We will see.... Oh yeah, the shutter sound toggle is stiiiiillll there. Hopefully it stays! I'm not holding my breath.
  21. How is sprint doing in Albuquerque? I’ve been checking out some 3rd party testing and it looks like sprint has dropped speed again in Albuquerque by a significant margin. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wrong PRL

    Given the fact that Virgin has access to Extended Coverage ever since it's Inner Circle plan still now with it's current one at least according to customer service. Shouldn't Virgin be using PRL 55070 like it was with Inner Circle or is 7080 correct? I feel like there's an issue that isn't being paid attention too. Does PRL 7080 have the necessary stuff to make the device roam on Sprints extended partners.

    Indeed, I hope so too.

    MB3 already has the hardware and software that basically make it most of the way there. Hopefully the software makes it eventually.

    SignalCheck Beta Crew Forum

    Hey Mike, would it be possible to change SCP to identify AT&T B14 by EARFCN vs GCI pattern? After doing some analysis on my log, looking the the B14 thread on Howard Forums and the netmapper map it appears to wildly vary by market what AT&T used for B14 sectors. The EARFCN should be consistent across the country. This would keep you from having to set several different patterns for B14. Here is what I found: Louisville KY, Lexington KY, and Nashville TN use BF-C4 Louisiana, Ohio, Texas - D7-D9 Alabama - C4-C6 some of California, North Carolina, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Vermont, Washington St,: AB-AD New York, New Jersey - D2-D3 Chicago & Northern Indiana, 2B- 2D Oklahoma and Missouri - D4-D6 Some California - C2- C5 I've also noticed that in NYC the B2 2nd carrier is AB-AD, which is the same as my B4 2nd carrier here in Louisville and the same as B14 in several markets.

    Lolol ethernet connectivity will probably come with the next hardware version.
