They really need to get this guy out front more. He is obviously knowledgeable then proceeds to explain this upgrade to a group in such a concise manner, even journalists can understand it well. 

John is funny and charismatic with the crowd, he has been with Sprint for so long. Marcelo went from surprise new CEO, awkward Wall Street talking head appearances, to selling a merger. No one is really sure what his customer facing role is outside of rich people poasting on Twitter.

Another great presser from Dr. John.

Thanks for finding this NextgenCPU!

Yeah, John is great. I do miss Guenther, but John really stepped up to fill the role.

That's on FDD to get 150 Mbps. B41 is TDD. This is just testing

Then what is the max speed of B41 don't forget the increase from qam.  Qam is not an exact science it pushes symbol rate until failure based on signal strength

Guenther is always so positive. His timeline is one of the few joys of any log in to continue experiences I have online.

2x2 Mimo with, 64 qam is 100 Mbps per carrier so 300 for the 3 that are online. Higher qam and Mimo increases that. 256 qam and 4x4 Mimo is gigabit LTE

So where does it say the test was limited to 64 QAM? 256 QAM is live on 4G but not in these 5G tests seems strange? Also it is 112.5 Mbps not 100Mbps for 64 qam.

Not with the current configuration Sprint has in place on TDD. More of the bw is on download so it's 100 Mbps.  I also never said the test was 64 qam, that's why bandwidth was originally at. I'm also not sure where your getting the 112 from? When they first did B41 it was 80 down 17 up. Then they changed the configuration to 100 down 9 up

112.5 Mbps comes from nokia white paper config 2. 112.5Mbps for 2x2 mimo 64 qam 20Mhz. 

Look at lilotimz image from reddit.

Sir you are incorrect. It went from 82.3 per carrier using 2x2 mimo + 64qam on configuration 1 and configuration 2 brought it to 112.5 per carrier using the same way and mimo.

Bit of an Ericsson infomercial, but an interesting interview with John Saw:

I will be in the 5G zone of coverage starting this June...  had previously thought getting a 5G phone would be useless until 2020. 🤔

All four of those speed tests in the last tweet are over 700Mbps.

Wonder when they start testing 5G in Samsung Markets?

Chicago is a Samsung market for 5G and it’s already on-air and being tested/optimized for commercial launch in May.

Impressive considering the tower will still be running LTE Advanced too.

Not terribly surprising, but Sprint is sitting out the 24 GHz millimeter wave spectrum auction after also sitting out the 28 GHz auction.

Boy Sprint is really better big and putting their faith in their 2.5 OR they rather T-Mobile bid on with the impression the merger is going to happen.

If I'm not mistaken the COO mentioned that they are participating in these auctions under a different name.

Thanks for the reminder. You're absolutely correct, ATI Sub LLC.

What’s the advantage/reason for this?

Not 100% sure, most likely something related to asset management, thats always a complicated subject, considering they are in the middle of a merger that might have something to do with it.

    • https://9to5mac.com/2019/07/22/apple-acquire-intel-modem-talks/ I assume Apple would still wish to go after the masses rather than the bleeding edge.
    • The devil is in the details. Besides the revised deal, I will want to see both what the DOJ requires and what the FCC does with spectrum by county, phones, coverage, billing, and transition plus any other details. Then I can make my own judgement as to whether this is good national policy. Only when the transition is complete in my area will I be able to decide whether it is a good deal for me personally. My overall guess is it will be good to allow T-Mobile and to merge, uncertain on Dish, and I might end up with AT&T assuming my local Sprint sites are dropped based on current results.
    • I found 23 new permits for AT&T CRAN installations for Louisville, and I've found more installed that I can't find the permits for so the count is likely higher. Louisville just switched to a new permitting system and everything filed prior seems to be hit or miss on finding the permit.
    • Dramatic uptick in AT&T small cell permits has been noted in Columbus and Sacramento over the last few months, so Denver find is not surprising.
