The skyline seems to change every week here.  More buildings are scheduled to be constructed. 

Wish i could tell you more about Opry Mills.  I do not frequent that property unless it is a last resort.

the traffic in that area is out of control.

I wonder if "Washington, DC" according to Sprint also includes surrounding areas in MD/VA.

I believe it does and unfortunately I think the big drag is not just the suburbs but capacity issues in the District itself. Sprint did add some mini-macros in the city core which made B41 somewhat usable again, but it continues to drag 50-60% below the number they provide there. District Government did announce that they received 11 bids to take over the city street lights for small cells - I am hoping that Mobilitie is one of those bids.

I think you're absolutely right about that. The Mini Macros did help some but what's really needed are 8T8R builds/upgrades or Massive MIMO to be deployed next year. The population density of DC has increased substantially with all the new construction and these 2CA Mini Macros that they've deployed can't get ahead with the traffic demand. I hope Mobilitie is one of those bids too!

I believe Sprint's last major announcement about DC's network was for Inauguration Day earlier this year:

I was up in Downtown Bethesda and Northern Bethesda this past weekend visiting some family I have up there. I have the "Baseline Data Experience" enabled in the RootMetrics Coverage Map App for iOS and I also ran some Speed Tests in the App in area hexes that were reported as 3G (Orange), hexes which didn't have any reports at all, and hexes which had slow LTE reported previously. I was pleasantly surprised at the speeds I saw! I was hitting upwards of 70-80 Mbps for download and 10 Mbps upload. Just doing my part to knock out those Orange Hexes when I can!

I know this is a touchy subject here -- but does Sprint still give $5 per line discount for employee discount (via verify) for Unlimited Freedom; on top of the $10 autopay discount?  2 two lines would be $90 with verified employee discount?

It wasn't added to mine, I had to call back and ask specifically about it. Took another plan "change" and a month to show up. I only see a $5 autopay discount (per line).

I wonder if the planned network update went bad...  Data is down nationwide now and has been for an hour and a half....

My guess would be that an update was pushed to the network which had some kind of bug. Once they saw that it knocked data offline, they rolled it back to the prior version of whatever it was.

I fall back to Verizon in my area with Roaming... I only have 1X voice when this happens.. no data available?   Is this correct?  Or is there a setting on my Note 5 i have to flip on?   My "Data Roaming" is turned on and allowed?

Is this (or anything else) available for current "more expensive plan" paying customers?

    • I assume the FCC and DOJ were waiting on this security sign off. DOJ will follow and then the FCC ...

    • Since people often don't like change, I could see a mad rush once the merger is approved but before it takes effect.  The first of three hurdles has been jumped (national security demand that parent firms get rid of Huawei has been accepted).  DOJ and FCC remain.
    • At least in Samsung markets with AirHarmony small cells, the PCI of small cells is 450 or greater.  EARFCN would be another way, but that sometimes gets location specific. GCI  would be another way, but then you would need to know the MM cutoff point for each market (we have those for Ohio)
    • Thank you Mike one of the guys clarified it. Good to know I wasn’t seeing things lol

    • The app already uses EARFCN as the primary means to identify the LTE band.. it will try to match a GCI pattern first, but if there are no matches or the "guessed" band does not match EARFCN data that appears to be valid, it uses the EARFCN instead. Since there are so many B14 sector possibilities right now, I don't think I will continue adding them beyond what is programmed now. Most newer devices on newer Android builds are properly reporting EARFCN, with some exceptions (issues with B66/B71 most notably). GCI pattern matching has become most useful to identify "special" cells (MM/SC/MB/Airave/etc) as well as multiple carriers.   I know this was answered elsewhere, but for the benefit of anyone who comes along later -- a small cell second carrier has been identified that follows the same GCI pattern as one sector of a Mini-Macro second carrier. Since the app has no way to know which one it is, it displays both indicators when this occurs. -Mike
