Yeah that's what I thought. So Sprint either got screwed or got a deal they couldn't pass up. I wonder which.


Maybe roaming. But yeah zero spectrum since att is very very limited

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.

AT&T has the most spectrum by a wide margin under 2.5 GHz. What part of their spectrum portfolio is “limited”? 170 MHz on average nationally whereas T-Mobile and Verizon are around 100 MHz and Sprint ranges between 45-65 MHz at best.

AT&T is in no way spectrum limited.

Most of the presentation is the stuff we already know about. But a couple of cool details

Over 1000 M-MIMO sites are live now!

Just waiting on final 5G NR software to be pushed

ENDC Bonded LTE/NR will allow the full 120Mhz to be used on 5G devices and still keep legacy devices up to 60Mhz of LTE

LG V50 will have a GLOWING 5G logo on the back LOL! (RGB everything life!)

**WOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!**

They also have live QnA and I posted one question,. he actually ANSWERED LIVE! Intraband CA is coming in weeks guys!!!!!!

Just now, though said:

Coming where? And which devices will benefit?

Thanks

Most modern devices released 2018 and beyond support it. But who knows where, could be one city/state, county or block for all we know.

Does this mean 41+25 upload? 41+25 download?

I was under the impression the target date for interband CA was at the end of June. They must be running ahead of schedule!

Intra-band means within the same band. Don’t you guys mean Inter-band?

I should have been more clear on that, Intra meaning non-contiguous CA within the same band and inter for different band CA.

So, which is coming in "weeks".  Inter or intra?

Interband. CA between different bands. 

Intraband has been live for a long time.

IMO, when sprint launches this it will also launch volte nationwide as well around the same time

Exciting! However, I'm most excited for the interband CA. Won't do me much good here but it will other places. They still haven't refarmed PCS here yet.

What does "RGB everything life" mean? 😀

I've already seen 26+25 though...

Nice. Nice I cant activate that combo on my unlocked phone

Anyone know what the Pixel 1, 2, 3 are cable of?


Pixel 3:

Pixel 2:

Couldn’t find anything for the Pixel 1. Looks like it supports 3xDL CA... Likely nothing in UL CA, but others would know better than me.

My main concern is Upload CA. Glancing at those links, it looks as if neither device supports it?

    • Are there ground mounted radios? There are 8 jumpers to the Commscope antenna, so 4xLowband/4xMidband should be deployed or coming soon...
    • So I wonder if this Sprint keep site conversion is the same setup just with different antenna. There's only 1 Nokia radio, so its either 600/700 only or 1900/2100 only + 2500. It wouldn't make sense to be 600/700 with 2500 without SA N41 because it would only be able to do B41 LTE without 1900/2100 to serve as anchor for NSA N41. The Sprint B25 radio was retained and is connected to the antenna and is currently the only technology broadcasting. This is also a very dense area for T-Mobile. 
    • It kinda just blows my mind that it's been almost a year and a half since start of auction and there still isn't a band designation. Why spend almost a billion dollars (T-Mobile's $873 million plus Sprint's $114 million) if you can't even get around to working something like that out with the 3GPP? I pray there's something going on behind the scenes, but I'm not too hopeful seeing as the only other owner of the band is DISH, haha.    I'd be shocked if T-Mobile doesn't keep a strong mmWave presence in lower/mid-Manhattan and downtown Brooklyn with their 5G small-cell rollout. That's key use case. But I agree, it'll definitely be interesting to see what they do outside of that area. You gotta imagine that Verizon played a pretty big part in how the nodes were designed, and Verizon typically loads their small cells up with every mid/high-band tech they've got. So it shouldn't be a matter of if the nodes support the tech, just if T-Mobile deploys the radios. IMO, T-Mobile's mmWave strategy (for both macros and small cells) kinda comes down to if T-Mobile is open to exploring the possibility of mmWave-based Home Internet in NYC.   I really hope they do keep them. Even if they aren't immediately upgraded to 5G, they'd be a big benefit for the network in general. Plus, fiber is already run, permits are already signed, sites are already built. Hopefully the neutral-nature of the nodes makes conversion easy.  I haven't spotted any nodes broadcasting the keep PLMN, but I'm not all that surprised about that.   Agreed. There are one or two redditors (who shall not be named) who love to spread questionable info, especially when it comes to NYC. Every carrier has Manhattan blanketed with mmWave! You can get FIOS at any address! T-Mobile has mmWave on every site and it's fast! T-Mobile has the densest small-cell network! Every site has 5gb/s backhaul (or if it doesn't, it's "just about to be upgraded")! It's really weird. Subreddit used to be so much better before it blew up and a handful of great contributors left.
    • My best guess is that it's a combination of the correct equipment not being available to support all of T-Mobile's mmWave bands and n41 taking precedence over mmWave deployment nationwide. It'll be interesting to see whether T-Mobile decides to make mmWave a citywide thing like Verizon (that they'll aggregate with n41 for gigabit speeds in more places) or if they'll just deploy it in stadiums, airports, and convention centers.  When T-Mobile acquired Metro, they retained pretty much all of their DAS sites. If they retain all of Sprint's small cells, they'd have a small cell network easily rivaling Verizon and could have an extremely dense mmWave/LAA/CBRS footprint to compliment their already dense (in most places) macro network. Someone recently made a post about how T-Mobile's tests in C-band were interfering with a local satellite TV operator so it seems like T-Mobile definitely has some interest in getting C-band deployed sooner than later, even if they won't be able to use the spectrum just yet. But like you said, it'll probably be another year or so before we start seeing deployments of that. I completely missed that thread but reading over it, so many people are very confused about the mmWave situation in NYC and T-Mobile's network here as a whole. It's pretty sad how people completely disregarded OP immediately.
    • Interestingly enough, today I came across a site in Seattle where they did the same thing. Previously, Commscope FFHH-65B-R3 panels were live with quadband; now there's only 1900/2100/2500. My knee jerk reaction is that I don't like this deployment. It makes optimizing handoffs sloppy and complicated. I  shot an email to the Seattle network team asking what the logic is - let's see what they say.
