Oh snap !!!

Sprint is coming back. The fourth-place national carrier (in our Fastest Mobile Networks tests) has made great strides in LTE speeds over the past year, jumping from an average of 19.09 to 26.33Mbps on Ookla's Speedtest Intelligence metrics. Depending on the average of att and Verizon for the quarter that puts sprint neck and neck with att and Verizon

I'm confused by the iPhone 7 being in those lists and not the 8. I didn't think there were any major issues with the 8 compared to the 7.. did I miss something? I would think it's an old article if not for the G7, S9+, and Note 9..

My guess is that it's because it's cheaper than the 8 while offering pretty similar network performance, camera performance, and hardware specs. If you wanted to go with a current generation iPhone, it'd be better to get the iPhone X instead of spending money on a 8 when a 7 is just as good.

Without indicating a source and indicating you are quoting, that is pure plagiarism and a copyright infringement that S4GRU will be liable for. It will not be tolerated. Additional infractions will result in corrective actions.

Yes, and it's moving along. I believe end of year is still the target for most of the southern border.

Still a bit concerned that it's still listed as red .. I was hoping by now it would be in the light green with one license left. maybe I'm looking at it wrong? Or the clearance can change just that fast 30days at a time

It's red because it's border region. That's coordination with Mexico plus some license holders. 

Note that the El Paso license holders have cleared. So it's probably coordinating with Mexico still.

Nice! Can't wait hopefully it will launch with 4x4 Mimo on band 26 that would be icing on the cake

It looks like they could be tri-band antennas. Can you get a look at the base? Might give us a better idea of what's going on there.

Hopefully all of our members in the Carolinas and Virginia are keeping up to date with the forecasts. Hurricane Florence looks like it will severely impacts that part of the East Coast later this week. 

If anyone wants to share what they are doing, or talk about the storm, I've started a thread here:

That is by far the fastest upload I've ever seen on Sprint. 😊

I'm getting 64 QAM upload regularly on B25 and B26. I saw it briefly on B41 today. Did catch a very brief blip on 256 QAM in Pittsburgh. So it's coming...
