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'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.

      Sprint announced the MVNO Google Fi will use its network for 5G in a press release (that is, once there are actually 5G capable phones compatible with Google Fi someday):
      https://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-to-provide-5g-wireless-services-for-google-fi.htm
       
      This is the first I've heard about Fi and 5G so far. Google has pretty much kept mum on the topic, so I'm somewhat encouraged.
