Their doing that everywhere that they can. I think it's a great move. I don't know their holdings there

So it’s a CDMA refarm?

Yes, that means CDMA is thinned significantly.

So will they go all LTE here soon?

No place on the Sprint network is going all LTE any time soon. There will be least 1 or 2 1xRTT carriers and 1 EVDO carrier until CDMA is shut down, which won't be for a couple of years at least.

Well I'm looking forward to Sprint's continued improvements. So the thinning of CDMA shows me they are increasing capacity in New Jersey which is fantastic.

Yes, thinning is important, getting more or wider LTE carriers on air. But they won't be shutting down CDMA entirely any time soon.

That's great. I am looking forward to seeing increase capacity on band 25

Thinning of EVDO.. Autocorrect can be pretty annoying.

Yes it's extremely annoying. So they are upping LTE capacity I take it.

Yup, it seems like it. The more spectrum they devote to LTE, the faster the speeds and the greater the capacity for VoLTE calls. I'm really curious to see how fast VoLTE adoption will be on Sprint.

I m also curious to see how Sprint will add new coverage here...

Looks like AirStrands are helping in Central New Jersey...

If this is an improvement I wonder what the speeds were before this deployment.

    • I read the article, and I believe this shows the power of 2.5 when it comes to deployment of 4G/5G. When I am on 2.5 4G LTE, I consistently am between 75 to 140 MBs. That is already really good. If it was more widely deployed in Albuquerque, I am positive they would be speed kings. I am excited where Tmo could take this. I am a little jealous that I am in Albuquerque and not in a bigger city. Who knows. Tmo might have a plan in the next 18 to 24 months to push Massive Mimo on a lot of towers.
    • It kinda did.  Thanks for clarifying.   I, however,  still think Sprint needed to cash in the chips.   They have never been able to fully utilize the spectrum they had since the Nextel days and would probably ended up selling some of band 41 off  as Masa Son wanted to do.    They have been financially constrained big time for the last 8-12 years or more.  They have been a constant 3rd place or 4th since they began offering full scale cellular service in 1998 or so.   Growth and possible improvement all seem to point to having to merge to improve.  They did.      Perhaps,.... maybe now, the 2.5 G will get fully implemented to our delight and we'll all enjoy a much better network.    I don't even like to discuss this "should of been", "could of been" or "what if's"  ...I'm guilty of it myself!   It's just such a waste of time.   Lets move on and hope for better things to come.
    • They don't need a permit to swap from an 8T8R to a M-MIMO panel. That's why a lot of sites with KMW 16-port triband antennas have an inactive 8T8R next to them.  Any chance you were able to snag some photos of the site? If not, the mast is relatively low, and you can probably get good photos from the parking lot of Cedar Park Christian School.
    • If you saw how well Sprint 5G performs on current handsets you would not say that, no overheating, good battery life and solid network performance, in my opinion considering how little funding Sprint has gotten, it's very impressive how well they are performing from handset and network standpoint.  But alas; "Sprint sucks" is the mantra everyone has adopted and higher ups are good with that.  Just makes this merger thing that much easier to make happen if as many people as possible believe that.
    • I don't have a 5G phone, so I have no clue. I have seen sector IDs greater than 20 but not sure if that means anything besides the fact it is no longer triband. Interestingly, I can't find a permit for this change despite the fact the change is very recent.
