Orlando is a mess. The good part is 5mhz of b26 and 15mhz of b25. Band 41 equipment is all over the place. Nokia, Ericsson and maybe 10% are Clearwire equipment. Then maybe 5% massive mimo antennas. Get that clear equipment out. Sent from my SM-G977P using Tapatalk
Clearwire Towers still exist but they are rare (mainly random B2 or B4 sightings).
Almost all = Clearwire locations have been converted over to Nokia MM/SC clusters, though some have been upgraded to Tri-band towers. I assume the Clearwire sightings are from full-towers which also have legacy Clearwire equipment. Recently, some of the Nokia MM/SC clusters are starting to be upgraded to Tri-Band.
I see the value in a combined network, for the past few years Sprint has just stalled and hasn't improved much. So if the merger fails and Sprint just becomes a small carrier in specific areas it has no value to me.
I will move also. My decision will come once the merger is decided. If approved, I will likely take one of the cheaper New T Mobile plans.
If Merger is rejected, I will probably have to go to an MVNO like Google or Mint Mobile. I have a 1 person plan (1 line) and there are no deals. Yes, I know places like Mint have $15 plans now...but I want to stay with a major carrier for international travel and for other personal reasons. Family plans get all the deals. I can't justify paying $71 / month with little under 1 gig of internet used each month. I just bought out my phone (Samsung 9+ from Sprint) and it's now unlocked. I'm just waiting for the decision. I'm hoping it goes through, because I too, believe the combined network will be incredible and I would like to use T Mobile's home wireless video service once it gets off the ground.
