At any given moment, how many sectors are you hooked up to on your cellphone? This pic is live data, what I'm currently hooked up to. It isn't a file of what I've connected to. It is what I'm connected to at any given moment on my G7.

Would be cool if it were B25+B26 in CA, but will be tough to verify on G7 considering LG engineering screens are borked.

But I do believe those are neighboring sites on the list.

Reason why I'm using the app network cell info, that is the raw data screen

M-MIMO is truly an awesome way to maximize spectral efficiency..

Using nearly 700mbs of backhaul to feed 16 simultaneous connections on only 20Mhz of B41 spectrum.

In the screen shots on the post you can make out that each of the 16 devices are averaging around 40mbs.

My predictions are Q2 next year ..
Once sprint gets massive mimo more widespread and 4x4 mimo more widespread.
Sprint should win both.

If they can keep investing this $6b per year yes. If they can win some speed studies it’ll definitely give them good attention and exposure.

Total Equipment Protection (TEP) has been rebranded and updated as “Sprint Complete”: http://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-complete-provides-worry-free-wireless-protection-with-enhanced-service-and-repair-and-personalized-on-demand-tech-support.htm

Some pretty substantial changes to the program.

If anyone is planning on switching to Sprint... Sprint is lowering their buyout program down to $450 starting on September 21st

Substantial price hikes too. I got a mailer about this a couple months back and the price for my phone was going up a few dollars a month.  Have to remember to cancel before the new prices kick in.

The $29 screen replacement is a big perk. My girl has a pixel 2xl with a cracked lcd, they are charging 190 to replace it. Grrr

Already paying $26 a month for two S9+'s, it will probably be cheaper to repair the phones myself if prices go up. Used to be $9 or $10 a month, even AT&T for the same plan is like $8 per line for the same coverage. If prices keep going up it will be cheaper to go back to AT&T.

 Does ATT replace screens under the normal protection and with no deductible? if so that's pretty great. Because repairing AMOLED screens on a high end device  is pretty expensive, far outstripping the cost of the actual monthly charge. 

Also, my personal trick is to keep some sort of protection for the first six months after purchasing the device while the cost is pretty high. After six months the price for repair is no longer as expensive.

The competition never stands still.  Sprint and many other companies are generally working against old data about their competitors rather than projecting where they will be at a future point in time (at least in their public statements).

Looks like AT&T is a $49 deductable, in the long run it's a better deal.

The Sprint Unlimited Premium plan says Full HD streaming but from my findings its uncapped. I was surprised to see the network automatically pushing me to 1440p 60fps when it can. 59a30eca19a53e171c28e906d974c816.jpg

If it's only $8 bucks month, then yes it's a better deal.

What is the cap on the audio? I noticed that by buddy has one of the freedom plans and his audio does skip on occasion in places where congestion or his phone drops to B26 is probably a problem.

If you look at the fine Sprint of the Premium plan Sprint says nothing about any type of throttling expect the 50gb hotspot to 3G after it is used.

The Unlimited Basic
480p video streaming
500kbps music
2mbps gaming

Unlimited Plus
1080p streaming
1.5mbps music
8mbps gaming

I think they meant uncapped when they said Full HD because the Unlimited Plus plan caps you at around 12Mbps and 1080p.

    • Sorry, I wasn't clear, the Evergreen Hospital MM setup I already located a while ago. The eNBs for those were: B6BD7, B6BD9, B6BDB. I meant for the cluster of MM which I can't locate in Kirkland. Just like Totem Lake and the John Muir school, there are three MM nearby with their eNB separated by 2 digits and one reports as an MM/SC. As expected, SE03XC353 tends to overwhelm them in most normal areas, making location more difficult. It seems that their job is to fill in the "shadows" for SE03XC353. My guess is all three are located at the aforementioned Clear site in Kirkland, but I am not 100% certain on that yet. I will drive around to see if I can collect better data on CellMapper. As an aside, it seems like it is common in a cluster of three for one of them to report as an MM/SC on SignalCheck. Even the one I found which had the last eNB off by one, instead of two, still had one of them as an MM/SC. 
    • Yes, Sprint was required by the US government to decommission all Huawei equipment due to security concerns.  Sprint has historically had issues with the property owner of that Motel 6. It was one of the last sites upgraded to LTE, and it will probably be one of the last sites upgraded to triband.  That permit is for the Clear site by Kirkland marina. There is a mini-macro setup on the roof of Evergreen Hospital by Totem Lake.

    • That makes sense, I said "loves" strictly because I have encountered so many of them near me. I didn't know about the Huawei aspect of things. They are very well located normally, providing coverage for weak spots from the "main" tower.   As for Evergreen, that would make sense, it's a high location in what has become a VERY busy area. I am guessing that is why the tower over on the Motel 6 nearby has not been upgraded. Also, that is good to know about all of the MM clusters. That combined with this permit makes me think that I am correct on the location. The only thing I need to determine if all three eNB are at the same site.
