The time, 6 hours (at least, don't know when the SS was done) prior.

Looks like it was screenshot on wifi but the test results show cellular.

Thos speeds are too high for band 25. Unless it was band 41? Screenshot shows 25.

I tooks this months ago in mount dora. I waited until I was around wifi to post it because I didnt want to get in a car accident. Safety first. But I assure you that was on band 41. Not band 25 or wifi.

Wow!  I have never seen anything faster than 72Mb/s Down here in the Carolinas, plus our latency is 55-60ms or higher most of the time, regardless of which tower/site/sector or phone is used.  That right there is nice.

The latency thing is weird. It's very location dependent though. In NYC, latency on 3G is almost never above 55ms and on LTE it ranges from 14ms to 35ms on average. In Boston however the only time I see pings below 40ms is in the middle of the night.

They won't be different than any other 2xCA capable devices that we have a number of examples of (including the 6s and 6s+).

 

Once 3xCA is officially online, then we'll see a difference.

Seeing as there are 45 towers up and running with 3xCA in Orlando, figure some folks are hitting them.

Phones still need a software push to enable it.

 

In Samsung markets, 3xCa an 3rd b41 carrier has been live since early summer but no one has access to 3xCA other than select sprint workers. Ie. Guenther mentioning getting 200 mbps speed in his reddit AMA on his iPhone / galaxy devices....

 

So the wait continues but it's getting close... :)

Any news on the spectrum swap between sprint, verizon and tmobile?

I found a co located site with clear 2500 on top then the other 3 carriers and then sprint with nokia b41 and b25 on bottom. Sprint would be wise to relocate that equipment to where clear is when clear is decommissioned.

1) Where'd you get that number?

 

2) No devices can currently access 3xCA. It's still restricted to certain testing equipment.

Off topic do you know how Sprint Coverage is at or in universal studios in Florida? Never been there I'm going on vacation in a few months

I haven't been since April due to extreme heat there. I am going to halloween horror nights in 2 weeks but back in April they had cells there at every park all with b25×2 carriers and b26. Band 41×2 came from a Sprint site with great speeds farther away and a clear single 41 site that was always congested. I'm excited to see if they are using 10x10 instead of second carriers there and I want to see if clear ever recieved a second carrier and the sprint 41 has a 3rd carrier.

They should eventually, as they are part of one of the swaps if I am remembering right.

There is a lot of 10x10 already active in Orlando and Kissimmee.

Some, yes. If I remember, it was not the entire area. But then again, I'm not as familiar with the Orlando market as I am others.

Plenty of sites don't have it but they are moving fast.

So does that mean the G block is still 5x5?

No. It means that the C and G block 5x5 carriers have been consolidated into a single 10x10 carrier.

      Ill make my comments brief, in hopes that it creates dialog abbot our future. The synergy and blending of the 2 company's from the network perspective is a complete disaster already! If you are a Sprint Network Employee and feel everything is so far, so good. You have not yet been tortured by the superior leader. Its coming. 
      T-mobile either has a leadership directive to force out Sprint employees, or the local markets and regions are overwhelmed by the extensive knowledge Sprint folks bring and that intimidation is causing them to try and force you out. To be fair, Sprint had layers of dead weight also and most need to be bounced. 
      From the brief time I have seen their processes and procedures combined with the lack of experience, rest assured you are all in for a wild ride.
      How about unionizing?

      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.

    • I'm ok with it doing what it thinks is best. Honestly wifi calling was always flakey for me to begin with. If I had to take a call at home and went outside too far away from my house it would not cut over to cell correctly and half the time I lost the call. Same went for when it used the magic box at my work and I went too far away from it. Sent from my SM-N975U using Tapatalk
    • The VoLTE thing is very annoying. From my conversation with a high level support tech, VoLTE is MANUALLY enabled on all femtocells. So after a reset or initial power up, it goes into a queue, and some engineer or support person starts going through the queue and toggling it on if certain conditions are met. I've had it take as little as 3 days, and as long as 2.5 weeks. It's pretty shocking that they don't have a better way to do this....    My guess is it's something to do with integration into the nearby network, so that macro handoffs are smooth. I've heard that after initially getting enabled on a femto, that future enablings are much faster (1 day or so), but I have mine on battery backups and don't really want to test it... You'd still think that they'd be able to automate this though...   Until a couple months ago, only LTE relay magic boxes got VoLTE. Anything using wired or wifi backhaul didn't. When I reached out to the above tech about this, he said it should work, and then 3 days later I got it enabled. Either he fixed the bug, or it was incredibly coincidental, after many months of not having VoLTE enabled.      
    • Well I guess it isn't actually roaming anymore even if it shows as such as TMobile coverage is now native coverage provided your phone has the necessary bands to latch onto whatever technology those particular towers are broadcasting. 
    • The key difference between this and true Clearwire (Sprint)  is T-Mobile Clearwire is always flagged as roaming.
