Welcome to S4GRU. I live in pahrump and am waiting also. Sprint's contractors have been pulling permits to start working on bringing Network Vision, so hopefully it'll start any day.

How are the speeds in vegas? I will be in vegas next week for work

 

When I was in there in December speeds were running around 400k down/up. Hopefully work will start soon before it gets slower.

Well, 400kbps up/down is fine for most applications, regardless. However, I was in Vegas just before Christmas, and I was impressed with the Sprints data performance. I stayed at the Venetian, and on the casino floor I was able to get around 1400kbps Down. Another speedtest was on the casino floor of Harrah's and got over 1300kbps down. I only did two or three tests while I was there, so my assessment is far from conclusive however, I did use data on my phone all the time and it performed admirably. Now, I don't know if these casino's had Sprint repeaters or not, but the data was great.

I'm in Vegas this weekend and the 4g was better than I thought. I had it from the near strip east to close to the Hoover Dam.

    • Here is how many competitive permits are "remaining" in each state after round 27: (bonus points: reply with the states/territories/districts that are already "settled".) AL 4 AR 1 AS 2 AZ 5 CA 2 CO 53 DE 2 FL 5 GA 48 GU 3 HI 3 IA 40 ID 19 IL 7 IN 19 KS 113 KY 22 LA 9 MA 3 MD 11 ME 1 MI 48 MO 54 MP 10 MS 27 MT 33 NC 12 ND 22 NE 8 NH 1 NJ 2 NM 26 NV 17 NY 6 OH 24 OK 9 OR 2 PA 2 PR 1 SC 12 SD 47 TN 17 TX 36 UT 23 VA 8 WA 22 WI 22 WV 2 WY 11
    • Almost 89% and $250 Million after round 27.
    • Pace picks up a bit.  Round 23.  About 86% now "uncontested" and $223 Million total.  Down to 159 licenses without bids.
    • https://www.lightreading.com/5g/the-quiet-brilliance-of-t-mobiles-5g-spectrum-strategy/a/d-id/779589? Basically Money savings on 2.5 mostly rural auction are funding 600MHz purchases.  Also mentions continuing purchases of 2.5 outright. Likely understates the amount of MHz. Auction going slightly faster with 4 auction sessions per day now, but still less than 80% "settled".  After 18 rounds it is at $190 Million, with $400 to $800 Million expected. could go on for another month.  check here for updates about 1 hour after each round: https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
    • Yeah, I went up to Kitsap on Friday. Was able to connect to several n41 sites as SA only in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Silverdale.  However, I could not get any throughput.  It would say Mobile Data Suspended.  n41 NSA would throughput just fine. Was pushing 500-800 Mbps. I don't know if it was the network at the time or my device causing the failure for data throughput. It was the exact same result on every site I connected to.  I'm on a normal Tmo Postpaid SIM.  Nothing unusual.  LG V60. Robert n41 SA   n41 NSA
