Hope so! My girlfriend's parents are in the Columbia market. You can check if the tower is Sprint by looking at opensignalmaps.com perhaps?

 

Tower locations in opensignalmaps are junk estimates. To see the actual Sprint tower locations, you should become a sponsor and view Robert's maps.

Ummm no ....... But u can go see him if u like

 

Excellent idea. I think that I will travel halfway across the country for my dental work because if there is one characteristic that we all associate with the South, it is certainly good teeth.

 

(Now, extra credit for those who can point out the logical flaw(s) in my humor.)

Ummm ya u know if u do not like a post u do not have to look at it and so u know living in the south has nothing to do with bad teeth

 

Well, to know whether or not you like a post you do kind of have to look at it first but that's beside the point.

 

AJ was only joking, there is plenty of humor on this site. I wouldn't take it so personally.

wyndd123, I intended for my post to be humorous, not offensive. If you took it to be the latter, I apologize.

 

As S4GRU staff, we have seen essentially the same posts and pics dozens, if not hundreds of times by now. So, we have to inject a little bit of comedy here and there just to stay sane. If you are willing to play along with that humor, make some cracks about us, too, this can be a simultaneously fun and informative site.

 

Best wishes...

I just usually make reference to the fact that AJ lives in Kansas. Typically that is retort enough when he injects deprecating geographical humor.

Hey, there is nothing wrong with Kansas. Oh, wait...

On second thought, watch what you say, Herron. We have leverage over you. We can have you turned away at the border, your Crawford County fried chicken privileges revoked.

 

:P

I was on the Sprint campus a few months back, and as I was landing at the airport nearby, I realized I wasn't in NY anymore. Cows surrounding the airport, and everything was flat and featureless.

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
