What is the amount of spectrum Openmobilepr...  pcs and lte..?

 

Openmobile had 15MHz of PCS (The C1 Block) and 22 MHz of the 700MHz Upper Band. I do not have any information on how much of that they are using for LTE.

 

Assuming the purchase is approved it would boost Sprint's spectrum position considerable in Puerto Rico. Unless I am mistaken, they currently only have 30 MHz of PCS there.

Plus the PCS C1 block is adjacent to the PCS G block, so the acquisition would allow Sprint to expand its PCS LTE carrier to 10mhz FDD, while leaving room for another CDMA carrier is wanted.

I work at Mayaguez. I will try a Speed test tomorrow. My girlfriend house is near the Howard Johnson Hotel. I noticed better speeds near the house. The only good places in Mayaguez that have always good LTE speeds. The mall, Terras McDonalds and the Howard Johnson. The rest of the Town sucks. Im from Aguada and I switch yhe iPhone to 3G because is must of the time much faster than LTE.

Good luck. I've been contacting Sprint for over a year to try and get at least a small cell added to this site. The other carriers felt it was worth it. This is Ramey btw so you know the area is pretty significant. 88ce640327970077e24f9d5427d8563c.jpg

Sprint/openmobile deal? Is that the CCA deal?

No this would just be Sprint quite simply buying Open Mobile and it's assets (that includes its network). The biggest benifits for Sprint would probably be lowband spectrum as well as a larger network that covers a majority of the inner island.

Would Sprint enable B13 on its phones just to use in one market?

If they don't do it, then their only option is to sell to Claro, At&t, or T-Mobile. But that means those carriers will also have to add it to their future phones since none of them own any upper 700 licenses.

 

It may as well be Sprint. It's not like other carriers haven't done something similar. T-Mobile added B5 to their phones due to a small slice of 850 they own in Myrtle Beach, SC. Sprint also needs low band spectrum in Puerto Rico.

No, that example is of little relevance.  T-Mobile added band 5 to ride on AT&T LTE coattails and to roam on AT&T W-CDMA.  The outlier Myrtle Beach market had little to do with that RFP choice.

    • Thanks for all the help! I called, left a voice message and sent them an email. Unfortunately it looks like they were pretty quick shipping since I already have a tracking number and an ETA of Monday. Hopefully you’re right and it hasn’t actually shipped yet. I am in Oklahoma, so that’s part of why the shipping is so quick to get here. I guess that could mean returns are faster too. So at least there’s that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • That stinks. My area LTE is still 10x10 I wonder if it's because I'm in a Columbia capital area? Mpls Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • Yes I did restart app. Also rebooted Moto and turned off other signal apps. No accent. Restarting app also was needed on LG V20 if you want to turn accent off (turn off setting then restart app needed). Thanks
    • Hey thanks!! 🍻 I already saw your report and have been looking into it, I'm trying to get another release pushed out this morning to give you guys another try at everything for me.. the Red Pocket SIM caught my eye as the only oddity, although SCP identifies it as T-Mobile so it should show a magenta line. Did you try restarting the app after enabling the option, just in case? (You shouldn't have to do this but who knows). I'm adding some extra logging that should show me some more details why this might be missing. Stay tuned.
    • Accent seems to work fine on my Sprint LG V20 using Android 8. I have not tested it yet switch to T-Mobile or AT&T or Verizon etc.  No accent on my Moto G7 Power Unlocked and rooted with Android 9 on T-Mobile network using Red Pocket sim. I assume accent is triggered by PLMN, but maybe by sim carrier? Diags and beer money sent for both so you can compare if needed.
