Wednesday morning dose of M-MIMO. Took almost a week for the site to be online after removing the 8T8R equipment5ba7be5dfde5a4f314474e8155806f41.jpg

I was on lunch today at tmobile checking out their plan prices. One of the reps came up and asked what service you on? I said Sprint and she immediately went on this rant on how sprint is slow, ouch

Its finally happened!!!! Sprint overtook Tmobile on Netindex in Manhattan!!     Next...Verizon!!

This is awesome!     UPDATE: I dont think this was meant for public consumption. Post removed from FB. Making it more awesome.

At home, M-MIMO received upgrade backhaul, now my download speed doubled from 120 mbps to 240 mbps offload at 4 AM.

I've been wondering what type of backhaul site have. Do we know if any sites have been upgrade to Gigabit or even Multi Gigabit for M-MIMO sites? Some of the M-MIMO Sites I've tested at late night / early hours can barely break 200Mbps. I know I'm never going to hit the theoretical top speeds of ~700mbps but I would think we could be reaching over 300Mbps

I picked up a V50, no 5G available in NYC yet. Drove from 42nd to 181st hit zero 5G, but speeds are super solid regardless averaging between 50-200mbs on LTE with V50.

That also might explain the ramping up of backhaul preparing for that extra 40-60Mhz that 5G will bring online.

I've been thinking about this but I might wait for the S10 5G and sell my S10+. Or if they have a really good trade in promo for my S9 again. I kept my S9 when I bought the S10+ even though they offered $550 and it's barely worth $400 online.


I used to be a fan of LG phones but when I switched to Samsung I realized I had been missing out.

Its too early for me to give my definitive opinion, but so far its been solid. Screen is definitely not as good or as bright as the GS10+. Audio coming from its own speakers are definitely a step down, but its DAC performance is clearly superior over headphones. Also camera seems to exhibit less processing noise than the GS10 but its definitely slower. One thing i must say, its call performance is superior to the GS10 in call quality and VoLTE stability.

More importantly..

Radio performance seems to be as good as the GS10 or slightly better so far. Once 5G is finally activated we will see..

The S10 5G doesn’t have lowband support (600 MHz) for 5G. The Qualcomm x50 Modem doesn’t support it. It’s a first generation 5G Modem and requires a separate LTE Modem. So the S10 5G will only support 5G on T-Mobile where it has deployed Millimeter Wave.

The next version version is Qualcomm’s x55 Modem, which is an absolute monster. It uses a single chip to support from 2G to 5G and from 600 MHz to 6 GHz. (With some luck, this is what we’ll see in the iPhone 5G next year. I can’t imagine Apple would want to have two separate Modems in its devices.) We’re likely to see this in the next Samsung Note this Fall.

A lot of the press believes we won't see it until January 2020 or later.

If that’s the case, I don’t think we’ll see a 5G device on T-Mobile until then. I can’t imagine T-Mobile wants to launch a 5G device which lacks support for its 600 MHz 5G.

Found another M-MIMO site in Astoria. Looks like they are really pushing these upgrades at full speed

Had to come check out this site from twitter a few months back. It's only broadcasting 1 20mhz b41 carrier. c576279bae5092b2cce7cf4e3acf38db.jpg

M-MIMO on the north end of Roosevelt Island. Crazy how much you see when you look up and know what to look for 20190608_165543.jpg

Sorry for all the spamming. This is my last post of the day.

M-MIMO under the 59th street bridge. These are my speeds today on the Island.

I also found at least 5 crown castle sites. Sprint is not on them, not sure who is. 1495737c95235ce94fb5037b287f4158.jpg99595de9b158fbe905840cc2c33cae7d.jpge6e482d5f41cbcd661a860207e17cab2.jpg67a0b3f4dd48caeb2d5a5c2357e8a97a.jpg6778bd94d11f18198afd4a90939d3bfb.jpg

T-Mobile already said they plan on carrying the S10 5G and that it'll work on their mmWave network.

Is it possible they’d get a tweaked version with the x55 Modem to support their 600 MHz network?

Found live 5G in BK's king plaza. Clearly was not meant for consumer use since it kept pushing me out, but did get a few speed test from 0mb lol to 150mb...

Side note: NR engineering screens were blank and SCP would show last LTE connection.

But seems to be coming real soon! Super excited.

      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 don't know if the CPU should be what gets the price down. If OnePlus can get the price of the 8 with an 865 in it, why can't Google with the Pixel?
    • T-Mobile responded to complaints by Verizon and AT&T that they shouldn't be allowed to bid on C-band or lease more 600MHz spectrum. https://www.t-mobile.com/news/un-carrier/real_competition_blog  
    • Rumors about the Pixel 5 are flying, and it is expected to be officially unveiled next week, with availability starting October 8. Improvements over the Pixel 4 include 5G support, 8GB of RAM instead of 6GB, thinner bezels but larger (6") screen, and my favorite --  a 4080 mAh battery instead of 2800 mAh. Some are unhappy about the mid-range Snapdragon 765G processor, but that's probably what gets the price to $699.. $100 less than the 128GB Pixel 4 was and several hundred dollars lower than the new Samsung line. 5G and a much larger battery are worth the CPU sacrifice to me. It might impact gaming I guess, but that's not my thing.

    • Nice find! I'm unsurprised that n41 is going up on that site given T-Mobile has already deployed massive MIMO midband panels there.  I'll try to stop by tomorrow as well!
