Does anybody think that DISH might be working with nTelos in an effort to run a beta test and debug the service?  When the service looks ready for Prime-time, then they partner with Sprint in some way. nTelos might just be a good way to get a system in place, fix the issues, and not really tip off anybody of the long term plans with Sprint.   Sprint has the 2.5 spectrum nationwide and an established network of cell sites with backhaul.  They are testing with 2.5 spectrum as that is what they plan to use for a full roll-out.

Sprint has the 2.5 spectrum.

I think so... many thought dish would be the new #4, I am starting to think Dish/tmo/Sprint all together somehow... Comcast will be the 4th.... They offer TV/Broadband services.. phone services.... Att/Directv same as Comcast....Verizon... almost the same as the other 2... Its not just about cell phone service anymore.. its about mobile options or solutions however you want to put it.. Dish/tmo/sprint together puts them in the same ballpark as what the other companies are doing...   

 

Consolidation.....

I am guessing there is not a small data package, making it a form of unlimited?(within reason) which isn't bad for $29.99

Dish and Sprint are trialing the same service as the one offered by Dish and nTelos.

I have heard that, maybe here on S4GRU, but I never could find any real proof like we have in nTelos territory. Is it operational anywhere in Sprint Corporate territory or just in nTelos Territory??

Corpus Christi, Tx was the place mentioned in a few articles.

    • 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.
