Announcing...Honored Premier Sponsor

Recommended Posts

You are only this far away.  Establish or increase your monthly donation and you will be there before you know it.  Monthly donations really help with site hosting costs for sites with a lot of traffic and a huge number of users and posts such as this site.
I do a monthly donation, will get to the list eventually... Unless you want to donate in my name!

Posted an update to the Top Donors list.  Justen moves way up the list to #4.  Brockeb1 has made it on to the list and jumps all the way in to #28!  jlbattagli, Trip, and runagun also moved up quite a few spaces.  Rawvega made it back on the list.  And thank you for all your time on the list, but, lrosete777 and leerage were bumped off the bottom.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!

Glad to do it , Robert.  Especially now with all the work to convert and update all the maps.  I know you and some others are really putting some major time in on the project.  I look at your S4GRU site every day and most of the time, I am looking several times.

The cost to operate the site is often overlooked.  So many sites today are supported by paid ads that just destroy the experience at the site. This site is very clean and easy to navigate. Just loaded with info.  Everybody that uses the site should step up and make a donation.

I am an "essential" employee and having to work a lot right now.  I hope things will settle down in the next week or so and I can do some work around here.  If I develop a cough, I'll get sent home.  :whip:

Praying here you stay cough-less and working as far as that goes Robert.

    • Not sure what they are planning/prepping for in central iowa here. Not including towers that have been upgraded to B71, the only LTE TMobile has been using is 15x15 of AWS. I noticed today signal check was only reporting the BW of LTE on AWS as 5mhz. Thought maybe it was a refresh issue so I checked my wife's iphone as it was showing dl_bw as 75. So looks like they reduced the size of the channel on AWS for some reason. What threw me off is that the EARFCN didn't change. I don't think they can use it for 5G since these towers haven't been upgraded since before TMobile took over from iwireless...
    • A full deployment has never been T-Mobile's strategy, and that's why they've never been the best in Seattle. Despite having the best site density (by a lot), their network experience falls far short of AT&T, Sprint and even Verizon now, who I would have claimed was in last place a year ago.  The trend for the last 4 years has been that AT&T and Verizon never climb a tower without deploying every LTE technology available at that time. Even today, the same cannot be said for T-Mobile.  I would estimate that more than 35% of T-Mobile sites in Seattle are still midband only. And some are still B2-only whereas others are B4-only. That makes coverage/capacity inconsistent between sites and handovers at the edge of cell sloppy, to say the least. To really compete with the big two, they're going to have to rethink the way they're deploying their RAN and stop deploying the minimum needed to get by. Hopefully we see those changes going forward, because they definitely have the economies of scale necessary to do so now. 
    • Factory reset it and make sure it has a good GPS signal. After a factory reset it should get it within a couple weeks assuming that it has a good GPS lock. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
    • Don't forget that the US Government paid AT&T $6.5 billion to deploy B14 FirstNet spectrum.  AT&T took advantage of those subsidized tower climbs to upgrade its own infrastructure to 5G-ready, and add all of its spectrum holdings.  Smart move. T-Mobile doesn't have that subsidy, but I agree that any tower they're going to touch from here on out should be fully upgraded, and I think we'll see that with the Sprint "keep" sites for sure, plus anywhere they add NR equipment.
    • I know on mine anytime I make a call it switches to 1x for the duration of the call and then goes back to LTE when the call is over.  I am able to VOLTE when out in town though.  Maybe soon.
