Exactly. Yes, it's tragic but this has NOTHING to do with Sprint's network vision rollout..which is ALL this site is about. We don't need people acting as reporters. We have CNN and myriad other news outlets for that. STAY ON TOPIC!

i don't agree, even though this is a "sprint 4g update" site this topic is in the "general topics" section and even though its not about cellular things it doesn't mean that as a community we can't discuss other things going on.

Thank you sir.

 

 

I bet you both feel really good of yourselves ganging up on me. THis is the Off-topic section of the entire site. Where I am free to post non-sprint related topics. I'm sorry that this was a disappointing thread. I posted this topic 6 hours after the event happened. Not everyone pays attention to the news. This was to inform the users who didn't know this happened. I was just letting others know. That is all.

One of my favorite things about this site in particular is the sense of community that has been built up here. I have been around for quite some time and have seen this site go from just a few dozen people to what it is today. I do feel like I know the personalities of many people on this site. As a community we have gone through a lot. Tragedies are a fact of life. I do think threads like this belong in a community because on this site we are all friends (most of us anyway, there are always a few fire starters) and friends discuss everything, tragedies included. And to say that these unfortunate tragedy threads have nothing to do with Sprint or Network Vision is simply not true. One of the major stories that came out during the tragedy in Boston was the Feds shutting down the cellular network (which was later proved to be false), but the networks simply became overloaded. All cell phone companies have to deal with these tragedies unfortunately and learn a great deal from each an every one of them. Don't forget what 9/11 did to cell AND landline networks. So Even if it sounds corny, I thank Robert for creating S4GRU and developing it to what it has become today and hopefully people stick around long enough to see that it is a great community.

I'm not ganging up on you by any means. I love wireless and Sprint, and love coming to this site. Coming here is kind of an escape from the outside world. It's just irritating hearing the same bad news on every single corner of the internet. However, as Robert states, This is a general thread so i retract my original comment.

Well said my man, I agree with you all the way. 110%. THis site has grown since I've joined. I refer people to this site for information. On sprint's forum, people complain and i tell them to come here and look for more information since sprint doesn't let us know as much as These forums do. I'm thankful for that, I've known tons of people who've had sprint. I told them they should come back because of NV in Fort Wayne. This site got me to stay with sprint through out the nightmares of the service here lol. But it has been worth it, I love teh 4G!

Thanks robert :D and to all those who help the man!(mods too)

I completely agree. Also due to the fact that I work a 12 hour night shift from 6pm to 6am and last night i ended up staying until 8 am. I did not know anything about this until now. Thanks rukin.

    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
    • If you need any assistance, firmware or drivers with the radio; I am involved in Quectel's US based sales and field application engineer programs. I am working on the x62 reference RM520/N right now. They are a really fun product to work with.  
    • Thanks for the locations, I will try them sometime in the next week or so.
