I just hope that this deal gives Sprint priority seating for the PCS G Block. Verizon is flush with spectrum now and t-mobile is in good shape with the spectrum they got from at&t & the Verizon swap. Another 10Mhz nationwide block would be great.

Sprint already has the PCS G block. :D

He meant H Block, but since G & H are next to each other on the keyboard, it's easy to hit the wrong key, lol.

Need to use my tablet or phone, less typo's then a standard keyboard on the laptop

drool, existing PCS/SMR/BRS adding G block with NV and if Sprint could get the H block, would be great for the future of Sprint

No problem

You need a better keyboard. Spaced out keys like the MacBook Pro's have makes it more difficult to accidentally hit the wrong key.

Got a new Latitude E6520 with the job change, still getting used to it. However, I really like having a number pad on a laptop. The piece of shit HPs I was using before were worthless...

I like HP laptops. I hate Dell because after I talked my parents into buying a desktop, I realized how junky it was, and don't like them anymore.

Wow, total opposite experience. Loved the Dell's we used and when HP bought the company, they switched us all to HP hardware. I went through 5 laptops in 2 years and the performance was shit. Switched from contractor to civil servant and got back on the Dell hardware and so much happier

I'm certainly not suggesting that Sprint not pursue the H block. Spectrum is the lifeblood of a wireless carrier and Sprint has to acquire as much as they reasonably expect to be able to use going forward. However, the H block would require going back to the 3gpp and asking them to approve another band class. Hopefully they could make it a superset which would also encompass LTE band class 25 which Sprint is currently using. Regardless, no LTE handset currently sold would support the H block. I doubt if any handsets sold next year will either.

Wow, I guess it just differs on use what experience the end-user has. Maybe I am also prejudiced about Michael Dell and his infamous quote in 97 about shutting Apple down and returning the shareholders their money, and how today he is eating those words as Apple keeps growing and is almost worth 30x more than Dell now. But my parents Dell desktop was pretty slow and didn't hold up very well with 3 people using it all the time.

Agree on all counts, but more and more spectrum is going to be needed over the years as more and more data is being consumed. Clearwire, even if Sprint buys them out, will never blanket the PCS/SMR with BRS coverage. I'd rather Sprint getting more PCS spectrum and get approval to use it. Towers, radios, antennas, etc already setup for it, so it will just be the handsets.

Going back to the 3GPP to ask for a new band class should not deter Sprint from pursuing the H block. If they need to get it they should do it. What about the AWS-4 bands that planned to be auctioned. Aren't they going to require a new band class when LTE will be deployed on them. Other carriers are going to have to go back to the 3GPP to create a new band class for AWS-4 spectrum.

    • Sure.. or it can just leave it blank or zero, whatever is easiest for you.
    • Added, and 2 more estimated sites: T-Mobile eNB 876480. Looks like its located at (40.62210996397784, -73.97627312607108), as the tower looks like a Sprint setup. T-Mobile eNB 875632. Both this site and Sprint eNB 9022 seem to be located at (40.61640722407462, -73.96985178560767).
    • Many of these sites I am uploading are for sites that do not exist, yet.  Although, I suppose I could go into NR only mode every time I connect to a new site, and then switch back, allowing all the TAC NR trails that occur to now have a home. Ideally, I would love to ne able to add the TAC's myself.  I have the NR Trails CSV file downloaded, and I see all the TAC-less NR entries.  Is there any way I can edit and manually upload them myself?  Maybe create a portal for such an upload?  Or at least give me a way to create at least one manual entry for every new site? Robert
    • Could we send the TAC as -1 if it’s invalid? Then, if there’s and existing site that matches the other info, I could match the web data entry up with it (despite the TAC being absent). 
    • Mine has been enabled.  And they show up in my device logs with the TAC null. Robert
