The closest B26 is west of Ionia.  Lansing area got some B10 CDMA in the fall.

 was in the Goodrich/ Grand Blanc area in November and was surprised to pick up a LTE signal everywhere I went including the house out in the sticks. It was a funeral so no time for speed test and such. I was just happy to see it getting a signal.

Goodrich isn't too bad for LTE coverage as there are a couple sites out that way including a boomer on an old AT&T Long Lines tower. But LTE coverage can be spotty in that corner of the county as site placement is not dense at all. It's interesting to watch on Signal Check to see your phone jump from tower to tower as it tries to find the strongest signal out that way.

Well... that's not very close... that's more than 1/2 way across the state.. west of Lansing which is 1/2 way point in state.   I guess it will be a while before we see it.   Maybe longer with the new Sprint plan to relocate on to "Government" property and towers...

Yeah, we know. It's called the Canadian IBEZ and it's been around for a while.

This comes off as borderline trollish.

Hello Eastern Michigan Market...   Anything new going on?   Any Band 26 sightings yet east of Lansing or anything else new in the Detroit metro area?

Not sure if it's just me but CA seems to be more widespread in a lot of areas. Even the areas without starting to see increasing speeds on Band 25. No Band 26 sightings though

Yeah, kinda what I see up in the north burbs... CA sites coming on here and there... that's about it.  But if nothing else, I'll take it.   Speeds are pretty good too!

No B26 in Lansing yet, farthest east I've seen B26 is the west side of Ionia.  There has been CDMA 1X B10 in Lansing for voice only, but no LTE yet in that spectrum area.

Sorry if I missed this, but is Sprint clear to launch B26 in the Detroit area? I thought the last holdout along the Canadian border was in the Pacific Northwest. I haven't cared as much about the mitten until I met my better half.  :)

I don't think anyone knows if the Canadian side is clear.  As for east Michigan, most of it does not even have B26 capable equipment installed.

Toledo now has 800 MHz active.  Anyone around SE Michigan see anything yet?

There's a bigger holdout along Mexico for Southern California, Vegas, Arizona as well. It's going to take longer for that spectrum to be clear

Tonight at Comerica Park. Engineering screen shows EARFCN 41176 which isn't uncommon in this area but Sector 09 is new to me. Is this DAS at the Park?

Grand Rapids has had Band 26 for a long time, it goes over to just west of Ionia.  Some areas in and around Lansing are starting to pop up with B26, including DeWitt, but its still spotty.  I looked up Martin, MI on the map and it is right off of 131, well out of the exclusion zone.  I'd bet dimes to donuts that any cell site around there is a full NV build with B26/B25/B41, along with CDMA BC1/BC10.  This might be a better question to ask in the West Michigan thread as that is a different Sprint region.

    • I received a Sprint Business email over the weekend.  Closing could be as early as April 1, 2020.   
    • Great article!   Good find!!   Thank you! 
    • I didn't see that volte had become an option with the Android 10 update. it's been off, so that isn't the issue. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
    • A great article by Jim Patterson on rcrwireless.com. Some nuggets format 2.5GHz: “Braxton, Mike and John have authorized me to do some work at risk this year in getting ourselves ready to deploy the 2.5 gigahertz spectrum as soon as the deal closes. Nobody is more impatient for this thing to close than me. I wish I was deploying 2.5 radio on the network right now, but we’ve done work at low cost in terms of securing, permitting, and authorization to deploy 2.5. So as soon as this deal closes, we’re in a position where we can start laying down 2.5 radio on the new T-Mobile network.” Enterprise:   T-Mobile inherits not only a trough of spectrum with the Sprint acquisition, but hundreds of seasoned enterprise sales executives.  As Mike Sievert recently acknowledged in his appearance at the Citi conference a month ago, T-Mobile is under-indexed in enterprise.   Sprint’s enterprise roots are significant, having commanded close to 20% of the enterprise data market as recently as 2006.  There are many sales executives who cut their teeth with fleet management solutions (Nextel and Sprint), wireless access solutions (Clearwire and Sprint) and IP MPLS (Sprint).  *Without going through all of the details it’s important to note that the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 (and their variants) have the 2.5 GHz band already installed in the GSM (T-Mobile) version, and that the CDMA (Sprint) version of these devices already has T-Mobile’s Low Band 700 MHz spectrum, a.k.a. Band 12 (and Band 66 in the case of iPhone 😎 already enabled.  The CDMA version of the iPhone SE also has Band 12 enabled. Bottom line: there is the potential for backwards compatibility within the current handsets. And the iPhone XS (and variants) and iPhone 11 (and variants) are universal devices and include T-Mobile’s 600 MHz band which will be have a big benefit for Sprint customers. https://www.rcrwireless.com/20200216/analyst-angle/the-sunday-brief-new-t-mobile-cat-5-hurricane  
    • Good.  I bought shares in Shentel (SHEN) and US Cellular (USM) a year or two ago when their stock prices went down.  Waiting for a business consolidation event that causes their value to double or more.
