So I saw this, and saw they plan on having 100Mbps wireless network. They mentioned Volte in 2015. Maybe a sign for Sprint to rollout Volte in 2015.

Isn't there an event this month, Happy Connecting, they call it, on the 23rd?

The happy connecting event could be about detailed info regarding this type of announcement plus CCA.

Ericsson is not a bad company, they make good equipment. They've just let their contractors get a little sloppy with deployment.

 

Compared to Nokia, TDD-LTE would be better on Nokia equipment. Hopefully it is earlier equipment. IAnd they choose to go with Samsung, or Nokia for TDD-LTE. I did notice they have decent pricing for fixed wireless.

Didn't we see a picture of an Ericsson TDD-LTE RRU a few months back?

That is a some titillating information there. Mmmm I wonder what the happy connecting event will showcase.

But I think VTel using B12/17, how do they use Sprint device on their network?

 

Because Rural Carriers are adding Sprint spectrum to their portfolios as a part of this agreement.  So their current spectrum holdings don't matter much.  Also, Sprint is adding 700 in their devices around the end of the year.

I think they will be deploying Sprint b41. That would be the best guess since they want to deploy 100mbps+.

Well, How do you use B41 in a rural area? I think B41 is only appropriate in high density populated area.  Coverage is a issue.

If they have enough B12/17 holdings, it won't be that much a problem to achieve 100Mbps

I disagree that B41 is "only appropriate" in high density areas. It's appropriate everywhere on every site if there are backup lower frequencies that can be overlaid with it as a fallback. It will work quite well. Probably 90% of their customers live/work in towns near cell sites. Vermont is more than ski slopes and dairy farms.

 

If they installed B41 on all their sites, it would provide a very good B41 high speed experience in most coverage area. And they can use B12/B26 as a fallback. They are not going to get anywhere near 100Mbps on their B12 holdings.

 

Sprint is offering the use of its spectrum and device ecosystem with these new rural partnerships. Our members have lameneted the loss of rural partners for years. This is exactly what we have been asking for.

Aka they're going to be using Nokia 8t8r equipment if they're using Ericsson for the base network which is a great thing.

 

Ericsson doesn't really have any b41 offerings commercially available in the US that can even compete on scale and performance that Samsung, alcatel-lucent, and Nokia networks can.

I may write Phil a note on my e-mail about the off-topic vendetta comments about Sprint. Most of the Sprint bashing on that last link is off-topic since VTel is running a network right now and they have an agreement to use EBS/BRS spectrum right now.

    • Well, I saw a good deal on a factory unlocked A32 5G on eBay and was able to convince the seller to show me the software info screen--and it was May.  So I jumped on it. Stuck one of my Tello SIMs in it, and while my Moto One 5G Ace would connect to n71 SA, this phone refuses to do so.  And with only 0 for the TA value, it's less useful for LTE than my older devices.  Oh, and the *#2263# menu doesn't work properly for NR.  So definitely glad I'm able to disable updates. - Trip
    • NextWave re-emerges with 2.5 GHz private network service  https://www.fiercewireless.com/private-wireless/nextwave-re-emerges-25-ghz-private-network-service https://www.nextwave5g.com/nextwave-news The only way for T-Mobile to get up to 190MHz now is to either buy out NextWave in it's entirety or wait until NextWave's lease is up and attempt to "outbid" them for the right to lease the spectrum from the Archdiocese.

    • Mike. I sent in more diags for wi-fi 6e yesterday where SCP shows channel = 0.  Thanks.
    • Added and modified them all! I took a trip through the L train tunnel between 1st Avenue and Bedford Avenue recently and found n41 live in the tunnel. It's 80 MHz, speeds were 250-300, and I didn't have time to check if n71 is there. Some stations speeds slow wayyyy down when a train pulls in now, even the ones with B2 at 15 or 20 MHz, so any upgrade is great sight to see.
