Added note for MUMIMO from my home tower, band 41 now have stronger signal than band 25, MUMIMO is the best thing it can be without HPUE, using samsung galaxy s7 edge.

It's M-MIMO btw. 

MUMIMO means something completely different (multi-user MIMO).

So far M-MIMO have been great now, 121 down and 7 up at -98 RSRP band 41 vs 25 down and 1 up on -116 RSRP few month back at 4 AM. M-MIMO help me a ton, living deep inside apartment with layers of brick wall in front and 75 degree angle toward the antenna.

Check out this upload in Middle Village Queens. Oh yeah the download isn't half bad either. It peaked at 24Mbps during the test.

What kind of site was this? Clear or ALU? Beware, the updated SCP has some issues with differentiating between them..

Pretty sure its ALU. It has had 3CA CA before Clear site started to get it. SCP has also said Sprint b41 for the past 2 years for this site

Found first M-MIMO in the Bronx! By Bronx terminal mall. Speeds and coverage indoors went from okish (4-10mb) to this...

And signal was considerbly lower and dirtier on previous Clear equipment.

M-MIMO is the real deal folks!

And thats with only 2xCA. incredible speeds for mid day usage.

It's 3xCA. Anything north of 169th St is 2XCA this is on 150th St.

Very curious to see how it would perform with 2xCA, it's sorely needed.

Look like my home tower malfunction, it won't register to the tower and suddenly no phone service at all, and then back online but no data. Yesterday ran speed test it only 60 down and 6 up on 3xCA, woke up today with no service. Data only work for 30 seconds before it went no data.

Edit: Now it back online, probably it went under maintaince for like 2 hours, from 4:30 AM to 6:30 AM

That is TMobile roaming. No worries about going over since it's completely uncapped. 

How are the speeds compared to what you have seen before in that area?

Yup! Sprint reused Clear PLMN to give TMobile roaming higher priority. If you notice next to LTE on the notification bar there is a small "R" and SCP sees it as Clearwire B4 (basically that's the PCC your connecting too on TMobile) 

Also, you see it as Sprint because all roaming is going through Sprint's back end that's why the ping times are affected adversely.

Btw, nice speeds!

Spent some of my morning mapping on RootMetrics. I managed to turn a bunch of red hexagons to the darkest blue on their coverage map. I also broke my personal record here in Crown Heights.

Now they need to focus on the other boroughs and metropolitan area so they win the actual Root Metrics Market award.

Reminder that Sprint site density in NYC is pretty insane..

This is just small cells!

That Clear site near my office that always goes out has been off since November 11th. I'm starting to think they just gave up and are just relying on surround sites to cover the area.

I have a question, does M-MIMO required to be next to 8x8 Antenna or can it be by itself? If it can by itself that mean, the M-MIMO on the Chase Bank Building at Water Street and Maiden Ln. is broadcasting with different GCI and removed the 8x8 Antenna. The GCI currently act like 3 sector Mini Macro GCI, MM, MM^2 and Sprint 41^3 on SignalCheck Pro, speed is 120 down and 8 up at 2:40 PM.

      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.

    • Im skeptical of TMo News because they list cities constantly.  ATL is like on half the update pages.  It's like a few sites get upgraded (we don't know extent of upgrade) so gets listed. Not like back when spectrum refarm, mimo or qam was changed in mass.  With how far it is into it, I think the merger will happen.  Im split on it however.  I do like that we will get movement from Dish.  Whether they sell out in the future or not, it will be exciting to see Dish actually move forward with something.  I like Sprint's regional roaming agreements and the fact that I use them and support local business if you will.  I'm sure these will go away and will be missed.  I've never liked TMobile's 'no service' status on my phones when they could easily at least roam on a regional carrier. Whether prices go up or down, they won't be where we need them.  They won't go down to what we we think if fair.  If the merger happens, once my phones get updated for TMobile VoLTE I think we'll switch to MintSim.  I pay $90/mo + tax for two lines and use ~12GB total.  It's way too much for essentially internet access, and most places we are on WiFi anyways.  I feel like all the carriers keep adding more and more features or limits to these plans that very few actually use to keep prices inflated.  Make you feel like you get a lot so are ok with it, even though you actually use a little.  
    • What I don't get about the states suing is that they don't seem to understand that no matter what, at some point Sprint is going away. IMHO...if the Sprint/T-Mobile Merger does not go through, then eventually Sprint will be broken up into pieces and auctioned off to Verizon and AT&T and T-Mobile and now possibly Dish. In my mind, no matter what, Sprint will be going away at some point. So essentially Sprint is going way one way or another. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • All of the above. I think there are maybe 12 towers with band 41. Terrible. 
    • I agree.   Not sure how diligent they will be in providing a good 600MHz path and depth.   I do read on TMO News, that they are progressing with 700 deployment as well, but the main focus has been 600.      Do you think this merger will ultimately be completed?
