Misc. Stuff (Mostly Spark related)

So Spark, huh. Anyone know what's behind their name choice?

 

How likely is it that I am to get 800 LTE from existing LTE sites before the 1.9 LTE actually gets deployed in my town?  :-p

 

Will our sources be able to follow up with Spark related deployment information?

 

Anyone know why Ericsson was replaced by NSN? NSN just got more aggressive or a problem with Ericsson?

 

Eight transmitters\eight receivers. Is that 8x8 MIMO, Mu-MIMO or just multiple 2x2 carriers?

 

I have an HTC EVO LTE and a Verizon S3. Each has their pros and cons, but I'm leaning towards my next Sprint phone being an S4 successor. Any timeline for an S5? The S series normally debuts in the spring, right?

Wait, DeKalb has existing LTE sites?  :P

 

The S series phones have followed the HTC series upgrades which have recently been late spring early summer.  What about a tri-band S4?

I feel like this topic would be better in the "General Topics" forum, but anyways...

 

Odds are, an S5 would probably be out in the March to April time frame, at least from what I have seen. And I'm pretty sure AJ has posted an article on The Wall talking about the tri-band S4. I would suggest looking at that (if you haven't already).

I am thinking that part of that 8x8 is diversity transmit and receive antennas with different down tilt to maximize coverage and capacity. I am thinking 2x2 diversity, 4x4 MIMO and I'm at a loss for the other 2x2

hah, look at the map now. Literally all around us. I have LTE in my bedroom now from an outlying site, but I have more bandwidth here than a Sprint site, so I'm not excited yet.

 

I feel as though the tri-band S4 is just a baby step and that an S5 is probably what I'd really want.

Probably. I posted quickly as I was in a hurry to get to a Clear/Nextel rooftop. ;-)

    • Looks like T-Mobile just got an opportunity to expand n41 in Shentel-land https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/shentel-sell-its-25-ghz-spectrum-assets
    • Almost at 76% licenses "sold" at $160 million. Like watching paint dry.  Will check again in a few days. 
    • I guess we'll see how many takers there are for this: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-08-04/dish-nears-launch-of-mobile-service-taking-on-at-t-and-verizon One early drawback to the Boost Infinite service is that, for now, subscribers will need to buy a $900 Motorola Edge+ phone to get connected to Dish’s new network. More phones that are compatible with the system are expected in the third quarter, Dish told analysts Wednesday. Registration Site: https://www.boostinfinite.com I remember when Virgin Mobile went iPhone-only: https://techcrunch.com/2017/06/21/virgin-mobile-goes-iphone-only-offers-a-year-of-service-for-1/ That didn't go so well.
    • Hey Mike    Ya I was the one that brought the issue to your attn for the color thing on my 6T like 3-4 years ago   that was fixed after like 6 months  and I never had any issues with that anymore till the 1st  Android/OxygenOS 12 update but it hasn't done that anymore (that i've seen lately)   it just doesn't give me the  signal strength much anymore  it'll show it for like 5 mins then  switch to  "--"  and stay that way  Sometimes if I close it out and reopen it  it'll come back (tho the icon is delayed showing up for like a min  or so when it used to show up instantly) but after a few mins it's back to showing "--" again and other times it'll just come back to the "--"
    • Sounds like an awesome project—keep us posted on how it’s going! Also—if you’re able to figure out logging, I can work with you to get the data uploaded to SignalCheck.
