4x4MIMO is not possible on 700 because there is not enough spatial diversity on the handset side.

Is Sprint doing 4x4MIMO on B41?

Why the sad face do you really need 300+ Mbps on a phone. It does not affect the total capacity of the tower. 4x4 and 4x2 have the same tower capacity.

I really want it for the edge of cell benefits

As I understand it, 4x4 would allow 300mbs from the device end, but we will still have beamforming plus the 4x2 benefits so edge of signal should see a sizable improvement.

It doesn't seem to matter though when it comes to Sprint. If it sees band 41 at -116 dbm and there is a band 25 or band 26 tower with better signal even if they are at capacity it will switch you over. With band 4x4 it would hold it longer maybe.

I think this is more of an optimization thing than anything else...

Has anyone seen any upgrades going on? Looks like everyone has come to a halt except for AT&T.

Great. Better battery life, more features better rf in very band(hard to believe )+ CA, s pen, samusng pay, gorgeous screen, faster wireless charging, better front and back cameras and camorders, fingerprint scanner and even better Bluetooth. Im not complaining. I only miss those front speakers and all of the lte bands the nexus 6 had. Well that and updates

For some odd reason I want to try an iPhone 6s plus. When I went to buy my Nexus 6 I was tempted to buy a 6 plus. I'm getting that Apple itch again.

I've recently received an iPad mini 3 to place orders for customers. I also won a iPad mini 1 for being 8 year with no work related accidents. Anyways I just can't get into tablets anymore. I think I'll wait until my wife gets her 6s plus before I make my final decision.

B30 additions? Most permits around me in South Jax is Tmo or At&t. Little amount of Verizon, too.

I talked with some Betacomm folks that worked on a DAS system for all of the carriers at my workplace and they mentioned AT&T has a set budget and often hit the budget before year's end and they stop all projects, even maintenance for their sites.  It is interesting that they seem to be getting the most attention in Jacksonville, though.  I believe they have a monopoly on the cellular frequency here.  I have never been able to connect to Verizon's 850 1x/3G signals here.  Only 1900.

I only have seen one site upgrade in my region from AT&T this season. And they aren't even complete with their LTE deployment here.

Yes AT&T does have all the cellular in this market. To me AT&T has better overall coverage and that is why. I think that AT&T are doing all their upgrades that they should have done last year because for the first half of this year I didn't see any work of theirs going on.

Which carrier seems to be doing the most work in your region?  IIRC, T-Mobile/Sprint are limited where you're located.  Unless you're referring to a nearby town?

Verizon and Tmo are actively deploying here. Both significantly.

      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

      Hello,
       
      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.
