I saw small cell on 56 street but was not sprint. But if get chance go check it out. Also by Chipotle on route 50 I found mini micro ripping over 100 mbps. Small cell on oceanside 56 street.

Down by the amusement park by the inlet att has 2 permanent globe antennas similar to the one in D.C. By the national mall. The two are much smaller though.

Sprint needs more capacity all around down there.

Isn't that the truth. We had storms a few times yesterday afternoon. Each time the network just crashed from all the users. I tried to used ehrpd and even that didn't work. Lte was unusable on band 25 and 41 during the storms. When it was nice and I was on the beach with the tower in line of sight, speeds on both band 25 and 41 were less then 1mbps.

I am now assigned a few days a month to Fort Meade, MD in the Army Reserve.  Poor connectivity and data speeds. :(

Yeah, their coverage map shows poor coverage there.  Hopefully they'll improve it soon.

I'll be headed up to Baltimore this weekend for the Raven's game. Looks like the stadium has DAS so I'll see how that performs in the stadium and how the Macro network holds up outside. We'll be driving up Friday from Louisville and heading back Sunday. This will be my first trip to Baltimore, should be a fun trip!

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

    • My wife and my CPAP machines have ATT 4G to phone home daily. Not sure ATT even knows our names. Does ATT consider me a customer? Probably applies to many IoT devices. 
    • No it's real VoNR. It sets up the equivalent of a dedicated EUTRA session (I forget what it's called in NR) for it with the proper bearer. NSG isn't really able to decode a lot of the VoNR signaling to get codec details and such yet.     There are likely a lot of issues with it still. It's probably not supposed to be public yet, and it's a fluke that you can access it by forcing SA. It probably won't launch more widely until the x60 comes out, which is the first modem that's supposed to support it.   Regarding the SIM swap, I doubt it. In my experience, changing the SIM resets all locking back to none/default. But you can certainly try.        
    • Question is whether SA would stick after a SIM swap back to Sprint. I have a Straight Talk data-only SIM that I could reactivate that sits on TMo, so I could test this. As for VoNR support, betting that it isn't actual VoNR, but basically the NR equivalent of CallingPlus/WiFi calling, where calls run over IP without QoS. Same idea as VoIMS on the iPhone when you don't have service from one of the SIMs.
    • If you had a T-Mobile SIM you could get into the service menu and force SA. The Sprint SIM locks out the dialer code. It appears that the S20 actually has some support for VoNR when locked to SA on T-Mobile. The signaling (captured via Airscreen, which is basically the PC version of NSG) seems to show everything as NR without LTE fallback, since the phone advertises to the network that it doesn't support LTE when locked. And this seems to only work on the S20, not other SA capable 5G phones. But there's still a little uncertainty with it. Either way, T-mobile is making progress with it and appears to be ahead of a lot of providers. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
    • Tried that. Phone still picked up B2 as an anchor. I'm convinced that SBS can't actually control NR band selection at this point.
