How can LOCATION X get LTE before LOCATION Y?!

This is absolutely ridiculous, LOCATION X? LOCATION X? Really? Why do they have LTE before LOCATION Y?! LOCATION Y is a very important place with Sprint customers that are definitely more important than the Sprint customers in LOCATION X. Why is LOCATION Y more imporant? Because I live there, that's why. Every location home to a resident as great as I am deserves LTE before LOCATION X!

As entertaining as your post is, and I often deal with irrational people who say exactly that, I'm confused at the point of your post. Is it just to be an outlet for frustration at those folks?

Correct. I'm tired of reading threads of people who seem to think they are entitled to service sooner because they live in a major city. Sprint knows what they're doing with their rollout plan, they aren't just throwing darts at a Map.

So what you're saying is that rural Minnesota is not more important than, and doesn't deserve LTE any faster than other places? Preposterous! I want it all, and I want it now! :)

Here you go, Veruca, sweetie...

 

Any S4GRU member who complains like a diva about Network Vision and/or LTE availability needs to be met each time with this video clip.

 

"I want it NOW!"

What is your point?

 

I personally think LTE would be of great benefit in Death Valley. Maybe then folks could shop on walmart.com for a/c window units instead of sweltering through life. Or perhaps they could discover there are other places with more hospitable climates. YES! LTE in Death Valley or BUST! NOW!!!!!!!!

Try cavalierly yelling "FIRE!" in a crowded theater in Colorado Springs and see how that so called 'freedom of speech' works out for you. (And, yes, the fire/Colorado Springs pun is intentional.)

I love when folks trot out the first amendment when talking about general speech. Here's the text with the relevant words bolded.

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

 

If it doesn't deal with the government creating laws that prohibit or restrict free speech then the first amendment is irrelevant. That's why companies firing employees for what they say is not a first amendment issue. That's why sports teams prohibiting players from tweeting or texting about team issues is not a first amendment issue.

The first Amendment only applies to the government preventing freedoms. Almost all websites are independently owned and operated and thus are not covered by the First Amendment in any way shape or form. Quoting the Amendment without appropriate context just shows your ignorance to the actual content and purpose of the Constitutional Amendment and why it was added in the first place.

 

I get sick and tired of people quiting the First Amendment without actually understanding it. What has our education system come to? This coming from a 23 year old, non-college graduate, who was educated in the public school system in Arizona, ranked 45th in the Nation when I graduated...

I also hate when people act like a jackwad and when you call them on it, they respond with" free country"

 

It is free, but that doesn't guarantee the right to be a jackwagon without consequences.

I propose we get back on topic, Sprint should obviously have LTE in LOCATION Z first because everyone will need it when the Z-POCALYPSE happens.

Nope, the sad thing is that if one wants to get an answer for a question, then they need to actually make a question that can be answered. instead of stating location x and location y which for all intent and purposes can mean anything, anywhere to a whole bunch of folks, just state the names of the locations and then an answer may be forthcoming. As posted, the question cannot be answered properly and therefore the thread is of no use to anyone.

 

As for the post of the First Amendment, Freedom of Speech may work out in the political arena or the media at large, in a democracy. but here this is a forum owned and operated by Robert. It is not a democracy, It is a run and operated by him and maintained and overlooked by moderators that carry out his wishes and mission statement.

 

Such postings make no sense (especially as written without actual locales) even in the off-topic section, and therefore has no purpose.

 

Thread Closed.

    • The Kendall/Kerr/Gillespie PCS swap is a very nice win-win for AT&T and T-Mobile. Means both of them will have a 20x20 PCS channel, though in exchange T-Mobile goes from 10x10 to 5x5 on one of their spectrum blocks. I figure AT&T will start running n2 DSS on that channel, as they have enough customers in those areas to need the capacity, while T-Mobile will probably just run B2 LTE, as once Auction 108 finally clears they'll have plenty of n41 to play with. Guessing we'll see the non-G-block 5x5 slice running n25, but it would get aggregated with n71 rather than n41 I figure as n71 will remain 20x20 there until the STA goes away (and maybe after that, as if T-Mobile gets 700 MHz as the result of VZW buying West Central Wireless's spectrum there's no reason to run LTE in 600). Which makes me think that the next move is T-Mobile trading 700A for the 5x5 of orphaned PCS (E block) to VZW once the WCW transaction closes, as that would give VZW 20x20 PCS in the area, and would give T-Mobile 700 MHz in an area where they have none. Then VZW can either trade 700B to T-Mobile as well in exchange for the AWS I block in those areas (gives T-Mobile 10x10 B12, gives VZW 15x15 B66) or they can cut a deal with AT&T to give AT&T 10x10 B12 (AT&T has the lower C block), but I'm not sure what that deal would be if trading like for like (vs. AT&T handing VZW their upper tiny slice of B5, giving VZW 15x15 to play with in that band post-WCW-acquisition). EDIT: Just looked at AWS spectrum again, and if AT&T would rather have 10x10 B12 than 2x 10x10 AWS, they could swap AWS-D for VZW's 700B block. That would give VZW 20x20 AWS, and would take AT&T down to 10x10 + 5x5...which they'd likely be fine with as they have 20x20 PCS, small cells in the busy areas, and as a result of the transaction three 10x10 chunks of spectrum in the area below 1 GHz. And if VZW traded 700A to T-Mobile for PCS-E VZW would have 20x20 PCS as well. Which is quite useful in an area that's macro-only for VZW and likely not dense enough for proper mobile usage of CBRS or C-Band (and an area where VZW doesn't even run DSS now).
    • Yeah, $250 credit for an S22 is awful. tbf last year they didn't have solid upgrade credits until mid-late April, which is when I paid $225 to swap my S21 for an S22. Happy to wait 'til then for that kind of deal, though I'll be annoyed at battery life in the mean time.
    • Miserable upgrade credits from Samsung this year unless you want to rely on carrier financing. Sticking with S22U for a while. 
    • So far we've documented close to 100 Sprint conversions in NYC with permits still rolling in and that's only what we've identified manually. Tons of sites get converted/updated without permits so there's potentially a lot more that we haven't spotted yet. There are also dozens of sites that are still broadcasting the keep PLMN, some have been decommissioned but historically the vast majority have been converted.
