I am not sure if the Note 8 supports Upload CA.
If S8 does I don't see why the note 8 doesn't

I couldn't remember if it was introduced in the 8 line or not.

I was told it has 4x2 mimo. Which means something good for download. No upload CA on my home site as of yet.6e815c0da7af6f671e1564627fc55271.jpg

North Branch at the intersection of 95 and 61. Not my pic. Got it off of Facebook. It's a Sprint only site. I am no longer with Sprint, had to switch to T-Mobile unfortunately so I can't do any testing.

It already had band 41 on it though. Before I switched, I used to get around 85 down and like 10 up from that site using a pixel 2xl.

Massive mino maybe. I've wondered where the cut off is on the Minnesota for where Sprint has enough spectrum for 10x10 while still having 5x5 left for CDMA. Twin unfortunately doesn't up north does,I just don't know where the cut off is.

I went and took some closer up pictures, but they are to big to attach. I'll convert them later and post them.

That is not. Massive MIMO units are very definitive.

Looks like octoport antennas. Not sure about the radios though.

Nice pictures. Looks like someone's colocating a new Nokia / ALU build to the site. Based on the antenna and radio configuration I'm guessing Verizon is the likely culprit.

No. Massive MIMO panels are significantly smaller than those and do not have separate radios. That looks like Verizon equipment.

Yeah I got that as soon as as he said it wasn't Samsung. Minnesota is a Samsung Market.

No. It's a R&R where they come in and remove the old 2.5 and install the new 2.5 equipment. They reuse the same hybrid fiber power cables or pull a new one if needed. 

There's some base station software configuration that they or someone must do as well.

Verizon is Ericsson in MN. Only carrier that’s ALU/Nokia is AT&T. T-Mobile is Nokia only.

Has Sprint done any triband upgrades to add B41 too Duluth yet? I'm going there next month and Sprint was terrible there in the past.
