Thought this was interesting.  Check out this video..http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=3000217915&__source=yahoo%7cheadline%7cquote%7cvideo%7c&par=yahoo

this just goes to show why Robert and the other moderators stress using wifi WHEN available.  Verizon already caps its users but is struggling.  Once sprint starts becoming a real contender with NV being done and gaining more subscribers they will run into the same problem and the first solution is to cap everyones data.  Obviously yes its unlimited and so when you are out and about have fun with it and enjoy not worrying about your data cap while you laugh at your friends.  To help keep it that way, this is precisely why they stress using wifi WHEN you can.

From the information we have around here, the bogging of data transfers should be limited for sometime as Sprint has put scalable backhaul in place for just that reason.

From what I've read and my understanding so does verizon.  But it will eventually catch up I think and my main point was the use of wifi when you can.

The Commander Spock (AJ) of S4GRU emphasises that point often.

Even the Vulcan salute looks a bit like the "W" in Wi-Fi.  Need I say more...

 

AJ

 

This of course brings to mind an immediate mental image (an eyeworm, if you will):  Does AJ have pointy ears?

    • Went to Rolling Loud NYC at Citi Field this weekend. Over 60,000 people in attendance. Verizon is a sponsor of the festival this year so naturally they had a ton of COWs set up at the festival. I counted at least 4. As a result, they were virtually the only carrier consistently able to provide a data connection. I didn't see any Verizon 5G, only LTE. T-Mobile on the other hand was a very interesting experience. I was seeing an eNB 331804 which I'm 99% sure is a COW. They also seems to be doing some sort of traffic management because I noticed that if I left my phone idle in my pocket, it would drop down to No Service/SOS or sometimes it would sit on EDGE. But the second that I needed to send a text, make a call, or even use Twitter my phone would switch over to LTE or 5G to complete the task. In an active data session, my phone would constantly flip between Band 2, Band 66, and Band 41. Sometimes, I'd catch myself on the COW and other times I'd get pushed over to eNB 875868, the relatively new Sprint conversion nearby. The network moved at a snails pace though. Where Verizon took about 15 seconds to load Twitter or send a pic, T-Mobile could take up to a minute to complete the same task. Here's some photos of the COWs I spotted. I think that the first two are Verizon and the one in the distance in the third pic is T-Mobile's single COW, not nearly enough for an event that size.

    • You need to have Wi-Fi Calling enabled and also have made at least one phone call over Wi-Fi Calling prior to using the inflight Wi-Fi.
