Site that is right at the border of New Mexico and Texas more rural has also been upgraded to band 41.. it looks to be a mini macro set up which is fine for that are not a lot of people in the area 8405b49d65e85b6591ff2cfc2f9f9758.jpgc4db21f44c36d7d53320a30cb4d1d183.jpg

Ya band 41 doesn't reach that far out .. it's drops to band 25 at around the 3 mile mark

So, as these band 41 sites turn on range is limited which I'm sure is part of the obtimization process. Now the whole the phone showing 3xca, but only brodcasting a single carrier band 41 will that also be fixed during the obtimization process ?

Are you sure there are not three different Earfcn shown? Could you upload a screen shot?

This is what's display , but it's being said that only 1 carrier is actually brodcasting in Ericsson markers 9b6e74b121a028733ba1dfe2ce372442.jpg

This is 100% 3xCA, all EARFCN on your engineering screenshot are valid..

EDITED BY DKOELLERWX, THIS IS QUOTE FROM ONE OF MY POSTS:

"So far, Ericsson 8T8R sites do not appear to support carrier aggregation. I have several in my market that I have found. For the moment, they are a step down from the Clearwire sites they replaced. 3 carriers are being broadcast, but aggregation does not seem to be happening."

It would appear your phone is connected to 3ca. What other conditions are you noticing that makes you believe 3ca is not active?

This quote didn't come from me,it came from a premier member Dkoellerwx.. I noticed it right away .. speeds should of been much faster on a 3xca site then they were .. and that's when he added Ericsson sites are only brodcasting a single carrier at the moment

Backhaul might not be ready. But the site is most definitely broadcasting 3xCA. You can disable CA since you have a Samsung device for testing purposes.

That site is absolutely broadcasting 3 B41 carriers, and your phone has engaged 3xCA on it. It is active and live. 3xCA speeds aren't necessarily super fast. If the site has a lot of users on it or the signal isn't that great, speeds will be slower. My home site only gets about 15 Mbps during the day on 3xCA for example.

He's explaining it wrong. Ericsson 8T8R sites are broadcasting 3 carriers, however it doesn't seem to support throughput on 3 carrier simultaneously. The speeds attained on Ericsson 8T8R sites are the same whether you are connected to 1 carrier, or all three through 3xCA. I have seen this on multiple Ericsson 8T8R sites in a couple different markets.

See my post above... Carrier Aggregation is not behaving properly on the relatively new Ericsson 8T8R sites. The older Nokia 8T8R sites in Ericsson markets are still working properly.

Interesting. Have you looked at it in NSG? If so, does it show throughput only on one of the aggregated carriers? Or does the throughput on each drop by 2/3?

I am not sure at the moment what you mean by NSG.

Network Signal Guru. It's a root app that basically interfaces with the Qualcomm engineering driver to give low level modem/radio details https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.qtrun.QuickTest

I do not have a rooted device, and am not currently interested in rooting so I don't think I can use that.

That appears to be similar to Samsung and I assume Nokia and ALU regions when 3CA was beginning to roll out. It turned out there was still backend upgrades that needed to be done.

Well one tower in Alamogordo has B41. Not sure why they did the Holloman AFB Tower first. But love the speeds

It's been a couple of years since I've been to Ruidoso, last time I was there Sprint's service was lacking. Have any improvements been made there?

Still not great but usable. Two band 25 carriers and no band 26 as it is inside the IBEZ. No band 41 when I was there last year.

I was driving around ABQ yesterday running errands and I noticed three different towers with new equipment. Two with mini macros and one with 8t8r. Nice the northeast heights is getting some love.

I've been noticing that as well here in the East Mountains. Edgewood and Moriarty have B41 now, and every site in the canyon has LTE. Very slow LTE in some areas, on par with 3G, but fast enough for VoLTE. I'm thinking almost the entire metro has very usable data now!

Sprint still has some work to do in ABQ as speeds were quite slow of Frontier Restaurant, but at Isotopes Park, the speeds on Sprint's network were fantastic when I was there this most recent Wednesday.IMG_3547.PNG

    • Something else I forgot to mention, the V40 is enabled for calling plus on LTE and wifi, and it has been working very well so far. I usually keep it disabled for WiFi, since my WiFi is a bit weak in some parts of my house.
    • A little anecdotal note on radio performance. I am currently a location with known poor coverage. We have 3 new phones - iPhone XS, XS Max, and LG V40. The iPhones are having no trouble picking up a usable LTE signal inside, but the V40 only connects to 3G unless I go outside, and the data is barely usable. It is band 26 LTE (800MHz) based on Signal Check on the V40 when I go outside and pick up the LTE signal. Actually now that I think about it, the V40 is probably on 1xrtt inside, not 3G, because Signal Check is showing 800 for both CDMA and LTE.
    • I second the LG V30+. I've had mine for over a year now, and I'm very pleased with the RF performance. I too live in a somewhat rural area, and also travel quite a bit, and I haven't been disappointed at all. RF performance is high on my list of must-haves when shopping for a new phone. The V30+ also makes use of all the current network technologies offered by Sprint, as far as I know. I haven't been able to test out VoLTE yet (not live in my home area), but it's on the compatibility list. I haven't been shopping, but I have seen the V30+ offered at very good prices recently.

    • Is this in Cali? The T-Mo roaming is great news, but it would be nice to confirm that USCC roaming is still working on the Pixel devices.
