Does it use any less data? That would be a major improvement.

I doubt it. It probably uses more, lol.

 

That is not a laughing matter, Josh.

Eh not feeling the new update. A little too flashy. I just want to see how fast my speeds are after all lol.

 

Will definitely have to keep my old version apk backed up just like I do with Slacker. That new version is ugly with all that white background. Hard on the eyes too.

Still shows the old version in the play store for me. EVO LTE

 

Probably because Josh is referring to the iOS version. I'm sure the Android version will be getting similarly refreshed at some point in the near future.

Legitimate concern for cable connections......

 

 

..........but not for mobile

 

Not yet. However, if Sprint is going to maintain unlimited data in the face of profligate use/abuse, do not be surprised to see traffic shaping in the future.

I am definitely for that. I hope they do.

Unlimited is a marketing tool - marketing tools don't do well with "*" attached to them.

 

I am sure unlimited will poof once sprint is stable. They've already talked about price hikes in 2014 - margin expansion time. I am guessing at that time, they will probably shift to a similar strategy that T-Mobile has deployed - which is to offer unlimited but make other plans more economical/practical so that's where people move. Following that, they'll just drop unlimited all together saying "oh, well nobody buys this plan anyway..."

 

When that day happens, I'll have to mail you a cake.

 

I am sure people will rant saying "well I paid for 5GB, I have to USE all 5GB every month!!!!"

Doesn't Ericsson market a QoS system that does just that? Sprint would be a good candidate for that.

From what I have seen of the LTE Deplyoments they are using Cisco ASR Routers on site and then can definately do QOS , Shaping Policing. just depends where in the network they plan to enforce that, Wireless side or Backhaul side

    • Good catch! I meant 115932/119932. Edited my original post I've noticed the same thing lately and have just assumed that they're skipping it now because they're finally able to deploy mmWave small cells.
    • At some point over the weekend, T-Mobile bumped the Omaha metro from 100+40 to 100+90 of n41! That's a pretty large increase from what we had just a few weeks ago when we were sitting at 80+40Mhz. Out of curiosity, tested a site on my way to work and pulled 1.4Gpbs. That's the fastest I've ever gotten on T-Mobile! For those that know Omaha, this was on Dodge street in Midtown so not exactly a quiet area!
    • Did you mean a different site? eNB ID 112039 has been around for years. Streetview even has it with C-band back in 2022 - https://www.google.com/maps/@40.7303042,-73.9610924,3a,24.1y,18.03h,109.66t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1s2ossx06yU56AYOzREdcK-g!2e0!5s20220201T000000!6shttps:%2F%2Fstreetviewpixels-pa.googleapis.com%2Fv1%2Fthumbnail%3Fpanoid%3D2ossx06yU56AYOzREdcK-g%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.share%26w%3D900%26h%3D600%26yaw%3D18.027734930682684%26pitch%3D-19.664180274382204%26thumbfov%3D90!7i16384!8i8192?coh=205410&entry=ttu Meanwhile, Verizon's eNB 84484 in Fort Greene has been updated to include C-band and CBRS, but not mmWave. I've seen this a few times now on updated Verizon sites where it's just the CBRS antenna on its own, not in a shroud and without mmWave. Odd.
    • Drove out into the country today.  Dish stuck to my phone like glue. At least -120 rsrp. Likely only good for phone calls (should have tested.) It then switched to T-Mobile. Getting back on Dish was another issue. I am used to dragging out coverage so I expected a few miles, but had to drive at least 10 miles towards a Dish site. Airplane mode, which worked for Sprint, did nothing. Rebooting did nothing. Finally got it to change over about 2 miles from the site by manually setting the carrier to Dish then it had great reception. Sprint used to have a 15 minute timeout but I did not have the patience today.  Previously I did a speed test on Dish out in the country at the edge of Dish coverage. My speeds were 2g variety. Dish has really overclocked some of these sites. Seen rssp readings in the 50s. Would have called them boomer sites with Sprint but much  more common with Dish.
