Is there any hope for CDMA


Recommended Posts

I am pretty sure that CDMA is a newer technology standard than GSM. Didn't it come out in 1995 or 1996? It was considered a more modern network standard that offered higher quality calls, less interference and fewer dropped calls compared to GSM. Verizon and Sprint seem to be committed to keeping CDMA around until around 2020. VoLTE is the future, but Sprint isn't committing all of its time and money to strengthening it's CDMA network with 1xA on 800 mhz and upgrading CDMA on 1900 mhz just to abandon it in a couple of years. 1xA on 800 mhz will be unrivaled for its capacity and range once NV is completed. I think CDMA is pretty safe for quite a while. Besides, most GSM is also actually a variant of CDMA, anyway.

ok. No I know nv is complete but for the majority of the 50 mile radius of my town/towns nv doesn't seem to be good. I mean it's good each tower is live with lte but all my service does is kicks me off lte and I airplane mode back in to it or I'm stuck with .20 3G. I don't pay my bill which is why in still with sprint soon I will be paying my own bill but with seeing sprint service now I just want to switch.

This thread comes across as "trollish."  The title, in particular, is terrible.

 

If members want to use this thread to ask questions and clear up misconceptions, that is fine.  But staff will be watching and may close the thread if it becomes a problem.

    • Their offers have been crap recently, so this is just more evidence to not buy from T-Mobile. 
    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.  
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
