Not on coverage. They are really behind on installing band 26 in the city where it is really needed.

Sprint is slicing these root metric wins finer and finer.  The reality is Sprint came in a distant forth in Seattle. http://www.rootmetrics.com/en-US/rootscore/map/metro/seattle-wa/2018/2H   Sprint has one outright win for this six month period when they used to get six or seven in recent years.  Some of this is how Rootmetrics counts upload speeds the same as download when the usage ratio is more like 10 to 1.  PCmag understands this so Sprint has done better there.  When the duo starts doing the same with TDD for their MM 5G spectrum I expect RootMetrics to alter the formula to balance upload speeds with usage . But this can not overcome limited backhaul capacity and years with very limited CapEX.  Recently Sprint has done a great job improving its network, but the competition has done better.  This will however help with reducing churn.

Dr. Saw shared this Update: Celebrating a Year of Sprint Network Milestones on our Path to 5G

Seems like good progress? Check out that National Average Download Speed Improvement according to Nielsen (93%) and PCMag (87%)!

Odd that there's no mention of VoLTE.

Exciting stuff!

EDIT TO ADD: Based on this article, Sprint had a successful 5G data transmission test with Nokia equipment earlier this month at its Reston, VA Lab. Testing with Ericsson and Samsung gear is currently underway.

Just announced today: Good news on Ericsson Gear!

.... Wow....

I take nether side serious, both Neville and John know they can’t put up enough capex as individual companies to push a broad 5G network at the beginning.. this is all talk as if they were merged companies already .. e1f8934f6975bbfc4fe6039ae39234e1.jpg
Heck, the other day Neville was presented with a 40 billion dollar check knowing that money won’t be available to him until the merger is approved and cleared

Do we have a count for 128 element massive Mimo sites yet out in the wild?

I see so much about permitting and 16 port vs 8 port and multiple descriptions of Mimo, so I haven't been able to keep up.

Walking by the USDA today, I noticed a panel attached to the building, which I later determined to be a Verizon small cell.

Don't see it?  Here's a close-up.

Not exactly where I would mount an antenna...

You got to hand it to Verizon, they will mount wherever they can. Gotta keep that title of being the most reliable.

That is kind of Fuguly! It borderline Eyesore!

How in the heck did Verizon get away with that?

That looks like a historic Federal building ...if so, why did the Federal Gov't allow Verizon to do that?

Nice little dig, with "on their own schedule", to T-Mobile Tuesdays

What ISP you have? Didn't know they offering more than 1Gbps  (100 Megabyte) speeds for home ISP.  600MB/s is fast.  We have 10Gbps servers maybe 10Gbps connections will be the new norm for home ISP.  I have a 300Mbps (megabits) internet and Cox will be offering 1Gbps soon.

Not sure that is even possible to push 600MB/s (6Gbps) on a home Wi-Fi wireless.  It is 600Mbps (megabits)? 

I know this is an old post @bucdenny but cox has been offering Gigabit (1,000 Mbps) speeds for over 5 years here.  I have had it out here in the "boonies" of ECV/SMR long before  ATT or any other piggybacked to light up those dark fiber lines here. (honestly thought Google was going to beat them to it)  Just did a quicked wireless vs wired) on same gigabit wifi network comparison.


  *Note, wireless test device is a note 9. obviously the wired device (computer) had a lower latency  than the wireless device but I was still and always have been impressed. of course ive been running a mesh network (Velop with 6 nodes for a 3000sq ft home) so i would expect nothing less.    having gigabit fiber along with wireless routers that can maximize those signals through dedicated back channels is amazing.  When something better comes around I will jump on it! 

I have seen Sprint (wireless non wifi) LTE speeds in excess of 100Mbps at times which is more than enough for the most dedicated individuals mobile needs.

Incredible speeds and ping, however I hope u aren't on a capped data plan with almost of gig of DL per test.

I live in SE San Diego where AT&T competes with Cox poorly.  We didn't get Gigablast until recently in my neighborhood.  I am happy that we finally was able to order Gigablast.
