That's interesting, try to run speed test and open engineering again to see it in an active session. No CA on your screenshot.

Are you sure that speed test you posted isn't 3xCA on Band 41?

Are you sure your engineering screen isn't just glitching out? Because the modulation portion of it is showing two download carriers but the download channel portion is only showing a single carrier.

Yeah I messed that part up I meant to say that it was two carrier aggregation on band 41.

i think the engineering is glitching the modulation part but in my *#0011# screen, it says b41 15mhz.  CA - notconfig 0 0

I'd wager that this is legit since it's broadcasting on 40142 seems to be a 4th carrier.

This could be some type of small cell, the SNR is extremely clean. Where, may I ask are you getting this? and what type of speeds? BTW, it would be nice to see the GCI as well from Signal Check pro to confirm.Can you post a screen shot of that as well, this could end up being a SC..

ill post the screenshot of signalcheckpro later. I cant go into s4gru on tapatalk pro for some reason.

This is on Mott St. between Canal St. and Hester St. I am getting  about 70mbps on DL, and about 4 mbps on UL with -96dbm

I believe this a small cell located on Mott St and Grand st.. GCI might have changed, and SCP not detecting it as MM or SC.

only that pico cell that broadcast only 15 mhz band 41, and I'm not sure why, the other broadcast both 20 mhz (39965)(01304131) and 15 mhz (40142)(01304139) but no CA located at water st and john st near south street seaport. The 15 mhz always clean SNR since it only 15 mhz vs 20 mhz where other people can easily use it. (PCI: 485) Formal GCI (012A7231) & (012A7239).

Since B41 spectrum availability is based on radius, if it's available might as well use it. So this doesn't surprise me considering it would just sit unused otherwise. Also, makes sense since sites are so close to each other to take advantage of some straggler spectrum, and as you said avoid interference.

Yeah this is not uncommon in NYC. You can even get over 300mbs during off peak times with the right signal strength.

maybe i havent been to many places.

im usually in some parts of the bronx and i didnt see any 3ca yet.
i only stay by uppereastside and midtown in the city. i only saw 2ca so far.
also, i just got a new phone that can do alot (note 9). before that, i was using my note 7 for about 2 years.

Any place north of 167th st in the Bronx or Manhattan(due to spectrum limitations, Sprint needs to deploy non contiguous B41 CA to add third carrier and beyond)are limited to 2xCA. Every other borough, including Queens, Manhattan, BK, SI and LI are all chock-full of 3XCA.

Surprised you didn't bring up the fact that hes was still using a note 7 until he just got the Note 9

I swear the Clear site near me in Midtown has issues every other month. It finally got 2xCA UPload and then a few weeks later there is no upload at all. They really need to replace it with MMIMO. It will go from having 100Mbps Download and 8Mbps upload to maxing out at 10Mbps download and .30Mbps upload. Tech support was helpless yesterday.

thanks, nice to know~
dang..oh wells. hopefully, nyc will get more leases for spectrum in some areas. anything above 20mbps is fine with me since i use a good amount of data. i dont expect too much of Sprint because it always been good to me.
i, definitely, feel that the note 9 is a beast (in network usage) which is the same as the s9/s9+.
i do want to try out the new iphone Xs max for sprint.

as for the note 7, i opened up my note 7 and took out the note 7 battery and threw it out asap. i bought a used but fairly new Note FE battery (from the sm-n935s) and put it inside the note 7.
i lived comfortably without worrying about my phone. hehe
i bought a new phone because Sprint is gonna turn on volte soon, and note 7 will not get software updates anymore.

Saw this in Penn station today on the track level. Would never have B41 that far ground unless im on the west side of the tracks. This was all the way to the east. Pulled 100Mbps on that signal.

I was there on Sunday and didn't noticed it any B41. The 30mhz of PCS and the 10mhz of B26 was performing very well. It wasn't busy like weekday rush hour but it was still busy for a Sunday.

Tuesday evening I noticed the B41 and its performance was amazing. I was back there last night and hit over 150mbps on B41.

Hi guys, is this Nokia MU MIMO  antenna with Alcatel 8x8 Band 41? This locate in above Manhattan Mini Storage Building at 220 South Street. This is my home tower. Which at the moment, Band 41 is down since yesterday.

      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 envisioning the others carriers raising their flutes to toast with champagne and sprint with coors banquet
    • Band 2 on T-Mobile got expanded to 15MHz.
    • I think they stay. Shentel and T-Mobile are in negotiations about either acquisition or affiliation.
    • I wonder what happened to the Boost stores in Shentel land.
    • Hey folks, I haven't been around here in a long time. I guess I just got distracted by other things, especially after Sprint 4G LTE became commonly available for me.   Then, in February of 2018, I defected from Sprint to T-Mobile. That move allowed me to get on the "T-Mobile ONE 55+" plan, (yeah, I'm an old geezer) and at the time, grab a limited time offer add-on called "ONE Plus International" that adds a lot of features, but most importantly "UNLIMITED 4G LTE Hotspot" on a phone.   The move was both for the service and price. I was paying Sprint $179 for service on one phone, and one USB 3G modem. The modem was what kept me with Sprint for so long. I bought it in 2007, when mobile data was just starting to catch on in popularity. Everyone else had low data caps and high overage charges at the time, but, Sprint was slow to jump on that bandwagon. They even had an ad campaign at the time, something like: "Use all the data you want, have fun"! I bought the modem outright, and paid $59.99/mo for unlimited 3G data. As an over the road truck driver, at the time, that was the same price I paid Comcast for home Internet, that was hardly home to use. I canceled Comcast, and that USB thing became my only non-phone Internet connection.   The bad part of that was, shortly after I got that deal, Sprint discontinued that plan, and I was stuck. If I made ANY changes to that line/device, I would lose that plan, and have to take whatever offers were current. I couldn't activate any new device on the data account. So I milked that device and plan for just over 11 years, until Feb. 2018. After so long, the device was struggling, and the data was just damn slow.   After my upgrade to T-Mobile, I have my main phone, (currently a OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren edition), an Aristo 2 Plus, used mostly as a hotspot, and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10" with unlimited 4G LTE, all for $132.41. About $45 a month less than what I gave Sprint, and I have one extra device, and all with much faster data.   On Sprint, my average speed was usually less than 15/2, on T-Mobile I get over 100 down and around 40 up.   Of course with this arrangement, one day I will find myself in a similar situation, a line stuck on old tech, even though I CAN upgrade my T-Mobile device, the data add-on specifically says "4G LTE data", So I hope that sticks around for a while as 5G becomes a thing. If I make any changes on that line, I will lose that add-on.           Sorry for all the rambling, I just looked at all the stuff I just typed, and can't bring myself to delete all that work. I guess I just got nostalgic when Facebook on Tuesday showed me a memory post from 2013, the pics are below. My first cell phone was a Nextel, that's how I wound up on Sprint, after that merger. It was 7 years ago already, that Sprint shut off Nextel. Now, Sprint is about to be shut off by T-Mobile. Everything changes. You can't see the date on the pic with "NO SIGNAL", those old Nextel phones didn't even have a proper clock, it just displayed what the network sent it, so, no signal, no clock. How far we have come.   Anyway, I guess with the merger, I'm back in the family, so here I am looking to learn about a new rollout, this time 5G on 2.5 GHz, specifically in the West Michigan area.   Sent from my HD1925 using Tapatalk
