Fairly positive Clearwire article.

Wish the editor knew the difference between Mhz and Ghz...

 

LOL. That was an embarrassing typo.

It is very important to have proper downtilt on their towers or people in the next state will be connected to that tower.

 

I wonder what kind of ping that would have.

As long as the SNR is fine, pings would be okay too. Light travels pretty fast you know...

 

186,000 miles per second. It isn't just a recommendation. It's the law.

HAHAHA its Joan Lappin. Wasn't she the heckler during the Oct 7th Network Vision conference that called out the Sprint executives for not just contracting out its LTE deployment to Clearwire for 600 million? If it is her, then its kinda embarrassing to see 2.5 MHz as a typo.

I have come across an external antenna that should allow people to receive Clearwire 2.5Mhz signals on their phones. It is a little cumbersome, but the building penetration is excellent.

Joan also doesn't know how to write...or at least copy-edit...an article. 20,00 sites? You gotta be kidding me.

 

Side note: I think that Cablevision has a 30,000 hotspot WiFi network covering much of their service area (NYC/NJ). The end goal is different (provide smartphone users a reason to get cable home Internet, because WiFi everywhere doesn't count against caps and is faster than LTE at times, at 15 Mbps down, 4 Mbps up). However you could apply the same idea to TD-LTE: build a huge microcell network to inundate an area with capacity (actually, TD-LTE would work better because it's built for a cellular environment and there's actually more spectrum available there than on 2.4GHz ISM/WiFi).

 

My bet is that the China deployment is all in one city, or a portion thereof, with micro/picocells. Lots of capacity (which is good, since last I checked wireline infrastructure is hit-or-miss over there), not a ton of coverage overall, but decent coverage in the area due to site density.

 

You'll never see that sort of thing in the U.S. though, since backhaul providers aren't just going to give away the hundreds of backhaul PoPs necessary to make something like that work. Cablevision's OptimumWiFi works because CV already had high-bandwidth infrastructure reaching their entire footprint; they could just strap a DOCSIS-backhauled WiFi access point to the coax and, without any additional backhaul fees, build a WiFi network across their footprint.

I prefer 24dbi 2.4GHz grids. They even work well on PCS spectrum (not much loss of gain due to imappropriate antenna design). Though that'll kill any MIMO that Clearwire has going on.

    • The options to ignore GCI/NCI/PLMN/TAC are buggy.. working on resolving it. NSA cells are probably not being logged for most users yet.
    • Boost Mobile – the Newest Wireless Carrier – Launches New State-of-the-Art Nationwide 5G Network, Plans and Branding https://about.dish.com/2024-07-17-Boost-Mobile-the-Newest-Wireless-Carrier-Launches-New-State-of-the-Art-Nationwide-5G-Network,-Plans-and-Branding I'm really digging the relaunch of the brand. The new app is a lot better than before in that it actually feels like they're going a more premium route. The BoostOne app tried to gamify wireless service by making you want videos or download games in order to get discounts on your bill. Now it's decluttered and basically only account management. It's perfect. I was on a promotional $25/month unlimited plan on Boost Mobile and I just switched to the new $25 forever plan which is pretty much the same as before, the only exception being that now I'm price locked. The only thing I wish they'd do is start using QCIs instead of throttling once you use up your allotment of "premium data". I understand that they don't have as much capacity as the big 3 and that they're super reliant on AT&T and T-Mobile outside of major metros but hitting 30GB and being throttled to 512kbps is not competitive. They then try to charge $30 for an extra 10GB of high speed data. The big 3 and their prepaid brands have basically given up on hard throttling and use prioritization instead. They should consider doing the same. The next step for them is getting their name on Apple's websites this fall when the new iPhones drop. That's some of the best advertising a carrier can have. Instantly millions of people will learn that Boost Mobile is an actual carrier if they can pull that off.
    • Use cloud features or backup files first before updating with this firmware.  I updated my S24 Ultra with this update.  T-Mobile and Verizon network esims worked fine.  Dish Rainbow sim appeared to work fine.  Right after that, when I rebooted to another non-public test esim which previously worked fine, I got the Samsung Welcome screen.
