Once Sprint uses Mobile spectrum and, channel widens B25 will improve. I will say Sprint is taking too long on B41 there.

I wonder how much spectrum had before all this? Meaning I wonder if it would be enough for 20x20??

Yeah.They need to improve a lot the network. I spend most of my time in Aguada and the speed sucks. I have my phone on 3G only because LTE here is worst. Now 0.09mb

Yea, here in aguada (at my home) speeds are between 0.05-1.2mb with my iphone 7 plus from sprint

 

But... with my girlfriend's iphone 7 plus from tmobile speeds are from 18mb-40mb at my house

There is a Sprint tower about 1000 feet west of the "Cementerio Los Rosales", providing that's the Cemetary you speak of.  Its actually about 125 feet behind Locho's Cafe.

I was driving on 107 to #2 towards plaza feran. I opened signal check for the hell of it and picked up B41 for a second. I think it was from the Aguadilla mall tower. So it seems the west is finally getting upgrades.

Well I'm about 40 miles to your east here on st. thomas and att speeds averages around 15mb to 40mb down so I can only assume that att in PR should at least be comparable since st thomas is like living in the stone age when it comes to technology.

Didn't realize Minnesota and St. Thomas were so close together!

    • And its back up today. Speeds seem good for 10x10. I did test calling, I was able to get my phone to ring while on SA N71 but no audio passed either way. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
    • Wrong perks program. This is akin to the Sprint Works program, where Sprint and your company have a bit of a deal that gets you a discount on your line. For example, I have a $5 discount for the time being thanks to the Sprint Works deal with my employer. 
    • The *vast* majority of markets had at least 60Mhz deployed, more if you count small cells and magic boxes. There were only a few areas where they were limited to 40Mhz due to spectrum issues.
    • I was in Greenville, NC last week and finally go to experience T-Mobile's network somewhere that wasn't New York for an extended period of time. Just like NYC, T-Mobile's 600MHz spectrum is extremely underdeployed. There are about 15 T-Mobile sites in the entire city and T-Mobile has deployed 600MHz on only 1 of them. Sprint on the other hand has tri-banded nearly every site. Another issue is that Greenville has pretty bad site density on all networks but the issue is exacerbated on T-Mobile by the fact that they lack Band 12 licenses for pretty much all of Eastern NC. The only lowband license they have is 600MHz and they haven't really put it to use at all. The good news is that speeds weren't that bad at all. Speeds were around 20Mbps on average with peaks of about 65Mbps. Deploying 600MHz likely isn't a priority for T-Mobile in Greenville and the towns surrounding it because on their end the network performance looks fine however, deploying 600MHz would fill in a lot of coverage gaps and give a much more reliable signal overall. Until then, Verizon and AT&T will have T-Mobile beat on coverage thanks to them having lowband on every site and U.S. Cellular will have them beat because U.S. Cellular has a bunch of extra sites that no other carrier uses in the region that provide them with much better coverage than any other carrier in the area.
    • Think T-Mobile will bid on this 5G spectrum?: https://www.defense.gov/Newsroom/Releases/Release/Article/2307275/white-house-and-dod-announce-additional-mid-band-spectrum-available-for-5g-by-t/ “The White House and Department of Defense announced today that 100 megahertz (MHz) of contiguous mid-band spectrum, in the 3450-3550 MHz band, will be available for 5G by the end of the summer.“ More info: https://breakingdefense.com/2020/08/pentagon-gives-up-huge-slice-of-spectrum-for-5g/ “The White House formally made the request in April. Roughly 200 technical experts from all four armed services, the Office of Secretary of Defense, and the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy studied the problem for 15 weeks. The FCC, which has already endorsed the plan, will start auctioning the spectrum off in December 2021, Kratsios said, with commercial use beginning “as soon as mid-2022.”” I’m sure AT&T/Verizon will fight hard for it.
