I took a class in Python in college, and two of my roommates were CS majors...I've heard my fair share of programming jokes!

For thoses that can't read this this is what it says

 

This is a film, from the first under a tree at the labor of scarce. Greeted him a force of evil. You hardly subsidized equally common, especially loans that force. Throw but who work in the definitions. They discussed the dangers of Euripides, is an all primaries. Option value is not no education first.

 

Epicureans first beauty of football, do not you want to learn all eternity. Concludaturque labor sentence to it, is when he realized that he had not wanted. But even if it is not ready to make. With the desire nor the representatives, the value of Epicurus my fall. Him, but the truth of the Greek applied. Holy aware of violence. And that when the real estate you want, wear my creativity in the timeless tales.

 

Add one or not, but Clitus State Archive. In them for some needs. Praise for our working class. For all that soft. And the right to be free gift, but is afraid of what tough.

There's nothing wrong with hitting up Lipsum.com for filler text. With this crowd, you may wanna try baconipsum.com :)

Let me know what you need. It's a site literally down the street from my house -- I'd be happy to take more photos, get video (for closer zooms/stills), etc.

You're so lucky lol. I'm jealous you have TD-lTE being setup in your area.

Stuff I would like:

1) Photos of base station cabinets

2) Multi-angle close ups of RRUs & the rf splitter device (?) that is connected to two of the 4 RF ports.

3) Different views of each antenna & RRU

4) overview of all three RRU & Antennas

5) Overview of antenna & nearby racks

6) Sprint NV rack

7) Anything else you deem worthy of taking images of

It's less than a half mile from my house, too. Can't wait.

The base station cabinets may be a bit problematic - this is a tower that also contains AT&T and VZW, and there is an enclosed structure that houses a lot of stuff. I'll do my best to grab as much as I can, but I can't make any guarantees. That said, hopefully the Clearwire base station cabinets are easy to spot and are out in the open. I did see some shiny metal cabinetry, which matches the other Clearwire flagpole site's base station cabinet, so we may be in luck.

 

I'll try to grab the other images once it clears up and we have better lighting.

I updated the Flickr photoset with a lot more photos, including the base stations. We were lucky - they were out in the open.  :D

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      Sprint announced at MWC trade show in Barcelona that 5G will go live with 4 cities starting in May  (Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas and Kansas City )

      Sprint announced the MVNO Google Fi will use its network for 5G in a press release (that is, once there are actually 5G capable phones compatible with Google Fi someday):
      https://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-to-provide-5g-wireless-services-for-google-fi.htm
       
      This is the first I've heard about Fi and 5G so far. Google has pretty much kept mum on the topic, so I'm somewhat encouraged.

      I recently went on an 8 day cruise from NYC to the Caribbean that stopped in Turks and Caicos, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic. My first stop was Grand Turk and there I opted for the free roaming. My S9+ automatically connected to Flow's (Cable & Wireless) LTE network where I received speeds of around 120kbps on average with boosts of up to 150kbps. Something worth noting is that on speed tests, the server prefers to default to Sprint's Miami server as opposed to local servers. Speeds were more than adequate for any amount of web browsing and honestly felt much faster than in reality. It helps that using Chrome will save you data by not loading pictures on certain sites unless you click them.
      In Puerto Rico, I connected to Band 13 on the way into the port in San Juan but once I was in the city, my phone never left Band 41. While the phone was usable, speeds remained significantly lower than what I've come to expect from 3xCA in the mainland U.S. Data speeds peaked at around 25-30Mbos but on average were in the 5-10 Mbps range even on LTE+. Signal remained strong everywhere though. 
      Finally in the Dominican Republic, I entered in Amber Cover which is in Puerto Plata. My phone latched onto a weak Band 2 LTE signal in the port from Altice (called Orange Dominicana in SignalCheck). I had trouble loading pages though. Once off of the ship and out in the open, I had a much stronger signal which allowed me to browse the internet without a hitch. Because it was the last day of my trip, while at the beach I decided to purchase the 24 hour high speed pass for $5. My speeds went from 120kbps to 65Mbps in less than 5 seconds. In some areas speeds were slower, particularly at the port where it struggled to break 2Mbps. Now, back on the boat my phone is flipping between weak Band 4 LTE and overloaded Band 5 HSPA+ from Claro (called Verizon Dominicana in SignalCheck Pro). Here is the difference in speed from before and after purchasing the high speed pass.
