My bet is this customer service rep simply does not want to be bothered with such questions. 

Maybe..

So according to sprint customer support... PR will not be included for voLTE.   Anyone can confirm that?  What a shame.. if thats true.
I doubt that

Delay I could understand.  One possible reason for delay would be low band implimention. Should be good in the end but I don't know the current status.

Does Sprint have 1x800 there or does CDMA have to rely on their pcs spectrum?

Only LTE matters for VoLTE. 700Mhz iirc, which would also be different for Sprint to handle in setting up VoLTE.

I know I was just curious if they had that or not. I know they have B13 for LTE instead of 26.

Not substantially. Other than possibly playing with TM parameters due to the fact L750 is a 10x10 carrier, there is little to no extra work to be done.

The formerly separate open mobile network is something to take into consideration as well.

I was under the impression that integration was effectively complete. If that's not the case then yes, that could cause delays.

Mixing and matching Samsung and Ericsson macro cells aren't always the smoothest things. Definitely work to do.

Looks like sprint is continuing the upgrade train here on st thomas.  Yesterday I made my first volte call on the island.  Didn't last long though.

I’m near Mayaguez on the island. During 11:00 a.m - 2:00 p.m. the internet gets slow but my question is, the kickstart v2 plan that I have Sprint throttle the speed during congestion time? Beside that all works ok. I’m noticing that B25 have carrier aggregation in many places.

I had to go back and look and yes 8615 is 15x15 not 5x5. They want the same one in Floridad20d8a9628e5ad2526da6cd5ff27d193.jpg

:). 15x15 @ 8615 includes the G block so it wouldn't be possible to aggregate that with the 8665 G block carrier.

Bet you wish I was right now. I think Sprint has enough for 20x20+5x5 and still some for CDMA

Sprint got the C block out of the open mobile merger. They just need to use it

    • Yes the site at the Mountlake exit off 520 broadcasts 5 L2500 carriers. Many sites in the area do nowadays. The B12 is T-Mobile/AT&T roaming. If it's displaying as Sprint, it's T-Mobile roaming and it's unlimited and unthrottled. 
    • Saw a 5 carrier B41 on the 520 by UW. Also, have noticed B12 showing up on my phone as Sprint. Sent from my LG-LS998 using Tapatalk
    • This is a follow-up to my posts of Sept 7 and Sept 20. Well, things haven't worked too well with the Sprint MiFi8000.  After a promising start, things degraded quickly and I started to experience the spontaneous reboot problem that Sprint MiFi 8000 and Verizon MiFi 8800L users have reported.  Originally I thought that it was related to the signal level -- but in the end I decided it was some thermal issue.  The units do get warm...  So I sent my 4 MiFi 8000 units back to Sprint. And I was never happy with the Peplink/Pepwave Max On-The-Go (OTG) unit.  I had several problems with it and the support folks weren't very supportive.       So I bought a second HTC 5G hub (now I have two).  Attached is a photo of the two units.  I got my old Cradlepoint COR-IBR1700 out of the closet and am presently using its load balancing capability.  The 1700 has 5 ethernet ports; 4 of which can be assigned as WAN or LAN and the 5th is set to WAN.  So I set those as 1 LAN and 4 WAN ports -- the LAN port ties into my house ethernet, and two of those WAN ports go to the ethernet ports on the back of each HTC 5G hub.  But the 1700 seems to be in Round-Robin mode even though I have it set to Device Usage mode (balanced usage) -- well, it clearly isn't doing that.  The one on the right is 75.51 GB while the one on the left is 116 MB. At this point I've been very happy with this setup and the internet has worked continually for the past 3 weeks since I brought this system up.  No spontaneous reboots (e.g. MiFi 8000), no blank web-interface screens (e.g. Peplink MAX OTG), and no internet dropouts.  Scott
