I have to tell you all I am near tears right now.  I am so stoked that Marcelo listened to us, directly.  I am sure he listened to all the feedback he heard.  But I believe S4GRU was influential in th

I'm still shocked and amazed how successful S4GRU has been in staying online, remaining relevant and keeping quality members and staff all with member donations from a relatively small pool. When we

Maybe he's outside of the city limits. He'll tweet as soon as he's back in town with a data connection.

What market?

I know the merge will be good on the technical side , but this is quiet starting to get funny to me .. how Sprint is able to regain a stronger network that fast

That’s a great question and point you raised. We experienced this with 8T8R antennas where it seemed like the news about them vastly exceeded the actual deployments.

Sprint laid out its 5G deployment expectations in its Public Interest Statement on Pages 23-25: https://newtmobile.com/content/uploads/2018/06/T-Mobile-Sprint-Public-Interest-Statement.pdf

It’s not a particularly rosy picture. There’s a lot more detail in the subsequent pages.

The specific number of Massive MIMO sites Sprint expects to update in 2018-2019 and by 2020 is redacted.

In the press release from today John Saw says "In 2018 and 2019 Sprint expects to deploy thousands of Massive MIMO radios" so while we may not have a concrete number we know it's probably a lot.

Based on the size of the Redaction Blocks/Text Size in Footnote 75 of the Public Interest Statement, the Massive MIMO deployment figure appears to be in the 4 digit range in 2018, reaching the 5 digit range in 2019.

I thought something was strange how my b25 speeds have gone up these past few days so I decided to do a late night test. This is not possible on b25 10mhz 64qam download. Ran it 5 times and every time over 75mbps. This is the fastest I got to and implies that 256qam or 4x4 mimo is likely live on b25. Every time I get a really good signal 64qam uplink shows in the engineering screen no problem but downlink is set to none. From two different towers btw.7bb0adb14d2eff0f12ce9771b6a569e0.jpg9716f78b256795bacfceb9191587e7aa.jpg

Post engineering screen shot, I'm pretty sure 10x10+5x5 can produce these speeds. It's live all around my way and I've seen speeds upwards of 60mbs during off peak times.

I edited it in above. My market is getting 15mhz no ca. Not here yet as you can see.

When I refreshed the page and saw the engineering screen shot I  thought I was losing my mind for a second, lol.

That is awesome to see! Looks like 4x4 indeed, need some NSG to really confirm all these things. BTW, Lil Birdy sent me screen shots of 4x4MIMO B41 live in Alu market, producing speeds 3x faster than a standard 2xCA device.

I'd rather let him post his own thing. Definitely don't want to take credit for his find. Believe me, you will see it soon!

So question for you all... what is up with my speed test at home yesterday... Download: .48 Mbps, upload: 8.40Mbps??   Isn't this backwards or is it because the network is overloaded and download is slow due to that?     I've also never have had upload speeds over 3 or 4Mbps.   ??    

I'm beginning to suspect they are re-farming 2500 for other uses, as I only now have 1900 available ever.

64qam on uplink is live on b25 in alot of markets but 256 qam is not. How many mhz does your b25 run on spectrum?

I think Detroit/ Burbs are 10mhz on 1900.   I don't really know.   

What device do you have? And can you post engineering screen shot so we know what your connecting too.

Was at the Jay-Z, Beyonce concert at the Ohio Stadium. Granted I don't have Sprint anymore but one of my friends did. Her calls were failing and nothing loaded(My carrier T-mobile included...the service didn't try to put up a fight to load anything despite having a full LTE signal) and the concert didn't really start until 7:30pm. We were in the stadium and at our seats by 6:10 with the gates opening at 6pm so there wasn't many people seated. Once we left and got outside those concrete and steel walls, her service went back to normal. I don't see why OSU does not have contacts with these carriers to allow them to install network equipment in the stadium.

I thought I'd do the honors lol and whats crazy this is only the beginning.. this seems to be their first real big push towards improving the Network across the Nation

Still need the merger ?

Well, Sprint gets to check this one off as a big win

Yes. One city doesnt make a competitive nation wide network.

It's not one city though. Sprint just chose to highlight their largest market this time around. City after city is showing average download speeds nearly doubling according to RootMetrics. That combined with 256/64QAM, upload 2xCA, and a renewed promise to deploy thousands of massive MIMO sites over the next 2 years is good news.

It also doesnt give them the resources to build out a 5g network properly, restore their brands or come up with a market place niche. I was asking back in 2014 why would someone buy sprint amd cam only come up with price. That is still the case. How is VoLTE going to work on their network across most markets? There is a reason people have to opt. Into it.

Let's not pretend that every carrier didn't have opt-in VoLTE. Verizon had opt-in and AT&T started with even fewer markets than Sprint is starting with. The only exception was T-Mobile and that was because they had a fallback option. Even then their call reliability was horrible for years until they managed to fill in the gaps. To your point about not having the resources to build out a proper 5G network, I'm confused about what that even means when they're deploying a proper 5G network right now. And while yes the Sprint brand is tarnished that doesn't mean they can't fix that. T-Mobile's brand was in an even worse position than Sprint's at one point and to some T-Mobile is still a brand they wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole but they are doing fine now.

    • The real question will be the effect on the upcoming 2.5 EBS auction.  T-Mobile might be able to get very good prices with almost no implementation costs for much better service in small cities and rural areas.
    • What was the previous 600Mhz antenna?
    • Auction 107: Hit $80.9B.   Now going to enter the assignment phase where bidders can bid on specific spectrum blocks. Wonder how fast this will get online this year.  TMobile's head start with 2.5GHz is gonna get challenged.  I could see them taking the lead in wireless tests in 2021 but then the gap close in 2022.   Auction 108: Three blocks.  49.5, 50.5 and 16.5MHz. I wonder how heavy TMobile will buy here. It'll sorta clean up their holdings and I could see down the road if they don't bid they have to invest more time keeping interference out of the current existing white-space. Likely at least secure entire counties they already own a partial license in. Everything about 2.5 is such a mess.  
    • So very interesting find , at my home The 5G upper layer indicator was turned off on certain LTE bands, but still has NR connected. It was on a Band 30 5 mhz one tower, a Band 30 10mhz chunk on another, and my home tower the Band 2 5Mhz chunk now has no indicator on. I am wondering if they are maybe configuring the the tower for DSS NR band 2
    • Seems to be the norm in many markets. They're replacing nearly all existing antennas on sites here in New York too.
