Milan spotted more allocation to band 25 .. which I'm sure has been out for a while now, but modulation still at 16QAM and 2x2 .. any 4x4 or 256QAM ?

The reason he is only seeing 16QAM is because his signal is too low. 4x4 is coming online.

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.

Sprint has been the fastest in Seattle for a while...but that’s a big speed jump!

It's like they heard our complaints from a few days ago about Boost Mobile having more hotspot data than Sprint. I don't need that much hotspot data personally and I have a student discount for Amazon Prime so Unlimited Plus is perfect for me.

This plan could spark off with the other carriers. But this plan essentially covers all of your media needs. Also to top of off a monthly $20 Uber credit as well. It’s a pretty sweet deal. Now if we can work on these taxes and fees.

I think Sprint realizes, whether alone or not, that they can't be so cheap, that they hurt themselves.

Probably.  This $90 puts them in line with everyone else. From what I’ve seen on here, they’ve been having great momentum with the network so why not put in plans that can further help put cash into the network.

Because in markets where there network is not that great, they are shooting themselves on the foot.

I can't speak on the entire United States... but Sprint is starting to get the top hundred and 20 markets under control in terms of network performance

In Atlanta, Sprint is focused on throwing the switch sometime before the Super Bowl in early February, says Heather Campbell, Sprint’s Director of RF Engineering.

“Our goal is to really show everything we can do at the Super Bowl and make it fantastic.”

Dealing with some weird roaming right now, in a friend's basement I have full bars of LTE on B41 but voice is roaming on Verizon. No reason for this my signal is great. Was hoping it was T-Mobile roaming but nope, I'm also getting upload CA from this tower which is still clearwire so said scp. Weird lol, it's apparent they are doing some work around here.

Don't know why my phone is roaming for voice when I have calling plus full bars of LTE I don't get it.

 

SCP cannot show you CA, so I'm not sure what you're looking at.

If you're near a Clear-only site, I could imagine you seeing full Clear B41 but no Sprint 1X and thus roaming on Verizon 1X.

I was in the debug screen for CA, didn't keep scp installed for long it has a problem with me and killing my battery. It was strange either way never bad problems in the past.

Any body know max speed on band 25 with 256 qam 4x4 mimo combine with 15mhz ?

36.7 5x5 2x2 mimo lte so 15 mhz is 36.7 *3=110.1 Mbps

To go to 4 streams from 2 that is 220.2 Mbps

Then ~30% for QAM increase so 286.26 Mbps. (QAM can be push until it fails think weaker signal so it changes.)

(112.5*1.33*2) ~ 300 mbps.

112.5 Mbps isn't that B41 config 2 and not B25 15x15?

The code rate (symbol rate) for QAM could have also changed from the last time I looked at B25 so just checking.

20 MHz 2x2 MIMO 64 QAM = 150 mbps

15 MHz 2x2 MIMO 64 QAM = 150 * 0.75 = 112.5 mbps

15 MHz 2x2 MIMO 256 QAM = 112.5 * 1.33 = 150 mbps

15 MHz 4x4 MIMO 256 QAM = 150 x 2 = 300 mbps

    • 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.
