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.

    • Great job on your analysis of small cells versus the 3.45GHZ and the population coverage requirements. I wonder if the fcc is stalling because they may address the key limitation of of 2.5: the convoluted frequencies. Not sure how they would get there, but it would be better public policy if you could actually use a single license in current times, ie 5, 10 or 20MHz. Of course they could also go in more of a nonprofit or small business direction. But most likely they will keep it as planned given how messy the transition would be. In many/most metro areas BRS/EBS is fully licensed. Would be nice if they put pressure on the squatters.
    • I didn't actually look at the buildout requirements before making that comment - they're definitely going to have to deploy on macro sites if they want to hit the buildout requirements. PEA001 has a population of 25,237,061, of which they will have to hit 45% in 4 years (11,356,677) and 80% in 8 years (20,189,649). If they were to cover the entirely, all five boroughs, of NYC using only small cells (something I'd say is impossible considering their current small cell density), they'd only be covering 32% of the population in the PEA. And this is with spectrum that only adds 300Mb/s per sector and will likely have only 50% the range of their current n41 equipment. Doesn't really seem worth it to me. I'm of the opinion that they're looking to hedge their bets in further EBS/BRS acquisition. 
    • These strand mounts also are deployed with Band 46 (LAA), in my experience. I have yet to encounter a strand mount with exclusively 2/66. 
    • Bought a esim "sim" card a few weeks ago that operates in all of my more current phones according to its app. It arrived a couple of weeks early from Berlin.  Now if my MVNOs would get moving and support more than iPhones and rarely Pixels so I can test this thing. https://esim.me The only item really troubling so far is reviews in google play store keep getting deleted, even 5 star ones.
