Well  i did ##data#  then, lte then band priority,  no band 71.

My LG G7 is the same way.  But if I put in a T-Mobile SIM, B71 works.

They are upgrading the entire network, not just cities. So they upgrade each site the moment it is ready. It is typically faster to have a rural site ready to upgrade than an urban site. Backhaul i

Guys. Sprint is better than ever. No more drop calls for me from UPR to Toa Baja and vice versa. Very good LTE speed. UPR Río Piedras Campus have LTE everywhere and usable 3g if LTE isnt available. I'

Your complaints are rather pathetic. To complain right in the middle of active deployment is ridiculous. The speed in which Sprint and Samsung have converted sites in Puerto Rico is unprecedented. E

So this finally happened... 

I hate how I can’t choose which LTE band I can connect to, phone keeps jumping between band 13, 25, and now this. Prob gonna switch to Android. I wish my phone would stop camping on band 25 which is completely useless here in Humacao. It rarely stays on band 13, nowadays.

That’s strange. 1250 is an LTE Band 3 EARFCN. I’m not entirely sure what’s happening there...

Sprint coverage is now improved?? Well.. thats what they are saying right now 

Improved where? Here in PR (Southwest side), Sprint is still awful. It would be nice if my phone could stay on B13.

High possibility that's the native tmobile roaming. They use b66 instead of b4 in alot of places nowadays.

Any news or upgrades?? West area? So quiet here 

The best way we get information is by people going to sites and taking pictures and using Signal Check Pro.  Then you will know what is there and what coming. If you need help, just take pictures of every rack on the tower and post them here.  For the price of your typical lunch,  we are willing to share our sponsor data with you, which will help you find the right towers much much sooner.

Sprint in Mayaguez urban area is so much  better now...but if you move to the rural area from Mayaguez to Las Marias or from Mayaguez to Maricao most people use road 106( from km 4 to km 13)  the problem is  b25 is so  weak no b13 nor b41 there...even Tmobile  with b4 b66 or b2 no b71 there  you cant open a video if you are  in the house nor answer a call. What i see competitors use a tower in Rio Canas from the west side  and two towers that are in road 349 moving from downtown mayaguez through bella vista hospital  from the east side to cover that important area .In those two tower in road 349  no b13 from Sprint no b71 from Tmobile.. and people that is a must.!!!!

How can I find out if there are any updates regarding LTE B41 and/or CA?
Looking at your local Sprint cell sites and identifying the 2.5 radios or M-mimo units is always a good bet.

Things have improved alot here in the VI market, I still detect the occasional band 13 but still don't connect to it and band 41 won't ever happen here but they made lots of improvements to band 25 including carrier aggregation.

Why will B41 not happen?

Because one of the local companies (Viya) owns and uses that spectrum for the VI market. Not sure what the hold up is with band 13 though. It's shows up occasionally on signal check but it never connects.
