I was in the zip codes of 33993 and 33991 today and did some speed tests on speedtest.net
I got speeds of about .8 Mbps with peek rates of 1 Mbps. I tried to upload pictures but the uploader said files were to large but even though they were below the maximum file size
I've been following the network.sprint.com site and just in the past year in South Florida there have been over 700+ upgrades to towers in my area (Miami/Fort Lauderdale) with another like 400+ planned! I've been taking screen grabs and adding them up. I know we are on the second tier LTE launch list but could they be doing the upgrades now? I mean I have noticed the speed on my 3G shoot up from unbearable to quite fast in the past 6 months or so. Also the speed of 3G on my new EVO LTE is about double+ of that on my OG EVO! So are these just a lot of 3G upgrades, normal maintenance, Network Vision or new LTE cabinets? When I choose other cities from the drop-down list they have a quarter of the updates that the towers in my area are getting except for say New York, lol. I've tried 4G LTE on my new EVO LTE with no luck. I remember that before the 4G Wimax launch down here in some areas I could get Wimax on one or two towers in certain locations so I thought they might test like last time. Thanks for any answers in advance.
That would involve another lengthy merger proposal with the FCC and DOJ. Another 2 years wasted. A possible new administration... IDK.... don't like that idea. Who's going to teach them how to run a network? (LOL)... please don't say ....
A solution to what exactly? anti-competitive?
Well when it is to buy or not to buy, the only answer is not to buy. I guess the judge is considering Dish's prospective. Will they get the job done. I think, with deadlines so near, and them owning spectrum for so long, we have to look at intent. So far, with the lack of building anything, that shows pretty solid intent right there.
As soon as the carriers get spectrum, they toss that stuff up on towers asap. Look how much has been deployed for B66, B71, B14. Look how much 5G is already deployed. Dish, in the last year before deadlines annouced 1, maybe 1.5billion for an IoT network.
I was actually kinda thinking about this. Dish needs to be willing to buy Sprint's entire network. Sprint essentially stays as is, minus spectrum licenses and postpaid customers.
So far it seems pretty stable, only issue I've noticed so far is that Google Pay thinks it's "uncertified software" and wont work. Maybe a little less battery life, but its too soon to tell. It's got the December Security patch and a Dec 6 date on the kernal, so it's fresh out of the oven.
