I have an iPhone so I have no way to tell. I still see the same UARFCN 8665 on the field test so I guess not.

8640 would be a C5+G 10x10 carrier.

I would look more in the city limits for it.

Funny thing is in the areas of FL, where they swapped for the C Block, the spectrum Omega map still shows them as holding the A Block.

That area is terrible for Sprint. NO CAPACITY AT ALL. Hopefully it's coming soon. In Ocala I know Sprint sent the stores surveys about it's network in the area and all the stores really let them have it about how horrible the network was. I believe Sprint has acted on this but it could have been coming either way.

I used to be on Sprint, then went away for a (long) time; now back.  I'm in the northern Orlando suburbs in a hole with no Band 41.  Even Band 25 seems to be just 5mHz wide.  There is a tower 500 yards from me that has B25.  If I go a couple miles in any direction, I get B41.  I'd appreciate any informed speculation on what I might expect from Sprint putting B41 on "my" tower?  Thanks!

If it's still 5x5 does that mean thos towers will go 10x10 first then 15x15 later?

I'm going by what my modem (EM7455) reports when on B25.  Never have seen anything but 5mHz.

 

I never had Clearwire, but the representations from the builder of the tower when it went in 9 years ago was that Clearwire was going to have a spot.  If that was the case, is it the natural progression for Sprint to provision old Clearwire 2.5-2.5gHz spectrum to Band 41 2.5-2.7gHz? Or does the fact that it has B25 5×5 suggest it's more likely that the next upgrade will be to take B25 to 10×10 or 15×15 ?

Some of their towers in Orlando have 15x15 it's their first city with it. It's not a matter of if it's more when. Some of towers have both 15x15 B25 and, B41. I was there back in April and, had both at Disney parks.

That's usually how it goes but I have yet to see anymore 10x10 in Orlando. It's 15x15 or 5x5 so it could possibly jump straight to 15x15.

And, is there any past precedent to say if B41 would be added?

That's what annoys me with Sprint att And, VZW would have it done on all towers in a matter of Days. It just requires a software update.

Nope upgraded backhaul too. But all of it could be done remotely.

Yeah when I was there the towers that have 15x15 didn't seem like they have the proper backhaul cause it was slow.

Some speeds from a 3xCA enabled site.

Just saw a new UARFCN 8640 in downtown Gainesville near Main Street. 10x10? Does anyone know? It was always 8665 before.

Yes!!!!!! It's about time! Hopefully my home site near the Oaks Mall has it also.

I was there yesterday and didn't get a single 10x10. Must have been today. It makes a difference.

Yes, it does. I can finally get on Instagram near the mall and actually be able to load and watch videos. It makes a HUGE difference.

      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.

    • Another beta update to SignalCheck Pro is rolling out! Version 4.614b will appear on Google Play sometime over the next several hours. More 5G improvements, the accent color should be fixed, and several Samsung shortcut menus were added. Samsung users, please try all of the new shortcuts and let me know which ones are useful and what they lead to. Thank you!
    • No, unfortunately I haven't seen any useful 5G info from your phone (or anyone else's LG) yet. If you get a software update and happen to find 5G before they shut it down, please try reporting again! The accent color is still in its infancy and only appears on LTE for now. I've had it on my version of SCP for several weeks, initially I didn't think anyone else would like it. Figured I'd offer it up and see what the feedback was.
    • I accidentally broke the Samsung menus when I compiled the latest release; it will be resolved in next update.   Thanks, I'll look into that.. it's all a work in progress, glad we are making some headway!   The current display format is temporary, it is just to get the data displaying reliably.. once that happens, it will get its own "block" like the connection other technologies have.
    • I forgot to post this this morning. Seems that Sprint will offer the V60. My buddy at Sprint HQ says more will be said Monday. Lets see if this pans out.   TS out
    • Another suggestion, can you place the 5G info above the neighbor cell list? In dense urban areas with 5x CA there will easily be enough neighbor cells to push the 5G info off the screen. Sent from my SM-G988U using Tapatalk
