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.

The $$$ will be paid out as a bonus to Sprint executives for achieving "cost savings and efficiencies."

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

Am I the only one that feels like these maps are a huge letdown? Sprint holds the spectrum advantage with their EBS/BRS spectrum. They have the ability blanket most markets with wideband 5G.

Yet they aren't. Why? Why not go scorched Earth on their competitors and widely deploy 5G? That DFW map is a joke.

That is probably a good thing. Isn't the campus mostly empty today?

For a preliminary launch, it’s a good start. Assuming Capex isn’t the obvious limiting factor here, Sprint may be limited by available 5G equipment, by regulatory/permitting process or by work crew availability.

If the (now removed) internal coverage map was correct, we can expect much more 5G coverage than is shown on those slides.

What do you mean? They are doing 3 B41 carriers on 5G. 5G is new and just getting started I'm not sure how you can say anything about coverage this early.

No separate carriers just a single 60mhz channel. That's one advantage of NR, it supports up to a single 100mhz carrier.

Cool I didn't know that. Hard to do 100 with 60 of it still on LTE. New Tmobile could do it, tho they said they plan to still use B41 for LTE also.

I don't understand why people don't seem to understand the concept of ROI. Not one penny is or is ought to be spent unless you can believe with a degree of certainty that spend will maximize ROI. They pay people good saleries to make these assessments and they manangment alot more to make capital allocation decisiona based on the assessment they are given. 

 

Istead of asking why sprint (or really any company) doesn't do X, given that as part of their decision making process they have more expertise and information that any of us has, you should ask what their actions tell you about their outlook on the company, what that means for their future growth and profitability.

Are the new monthly reports out yet for band 26 clearing along border regions ?

I've shockingly had generally very good results with their chat bots. In the few instances where the bots couldn't help me, I was transferred to a real person and found resolution there.

AI probably explains why I was being told that I qualify for an upgrade when I was asking about changing the address on a S10 preorder.  I ended up getting three different answers between 2x chats and 1x call.

I wish Sprint was this detailed on all of their site launches!
At least that's a better upload in that pic

True but this was likely line of sight. Sprints upload CA breaks down fast when foliage and buildings are introduced.
