Within the last week I started getting HD voice, while connected to wifi calling, when a Verizon user calls me.  However if i initiate the call instead HD voice is not there.  What gives?

Also, if i disconnect from wifi and use the cellular network (1x800), no HD voice no matter what.  its been so long so i can not remember but is there no HD voice on 1x?

HD Voice on 1x is only available between Sprint customers, I believe.  And between calling plus enabled devices.

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

Maybe he's outside of the city limits. He'll tweet as soon as he's back in town with a data connection.

1x Voice HD is Sprint to Sprint only.

HD voice using AMR-WB or EVS-WB is:

  • Calling Plus <--> Calling Plus (CP)
  •  Wifi Calling <--> Wifi Calling (WC)
  • WC <--> CP
  • VoLTE <--> VoLTE
  • VoLTE <--> WC
  • VoLTE <--> CP

 

HD Voice can be used during CP, WC, and VoLTE to another carriers network as well.

Best part is Shentel isn't on that tower.51fcc3e3dfc670b4beea34cb2e56fd5b.jpg

Shentel's on a different tower nearby though, I think.  I believe on the tall Exxon sign near I-81 and US-50.

I have record of AT&T and T-Mobile on that tower.  Am I correct in assuming Verizon is on it as well?  (Looks like T-Mobile is the bottom rack and AT&T the middle rack...)

You would be correct on all of that sir. If memory serves me correctly, the site on the Exxon sign was our frist B41 site.
I was at the new SU athletic/event center all day and every time I looked out the window it made me laugh. Per Google, the Exxon site is about 2000' away from there.

Good to know.  I just cant figure out why when I try to initiate the call on WC to Verizon, HD voice will not appear but the reverse it will (she calls me instead).  Everything else is the same.

They are knee-deep in litigation now from multiple investment firms and clients.   How do you present fictitious earnings news?   IMO, this violates the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) act.   Big time trouble if it does.  

I'm sure the settlement with AT&T (probably bad) is something else they're having to deal with.

What do we think about the cause of the delay being Sprint did well this past quarter and they got a really good deal in their settlement with AT&T? News like that could potentially kill the merger.

We think that isn't how these things work.

Not.

It is almost as if it was entirely predictable.

I've already told David this but someone is now claiming Sprint hasn't released their results cause of pending lawsuit's for lieing to investors. Made up but the individual claiming that

Very Nice!

I hope they also get out of the cars and do walking tests as well. Give someone a backpack and a large power cell pack and send them off exploring the city. I would gladly do it... and get my steps in!

Hit him up on Twitter and he might send you a V50. Worth a shot lol. Sounds like a fun way to get the cardio in!

Numbers aren’t great .. 169 thousand in gains most of this is coming from prepaid migrations without this they only do 40K +. At a loss of 189K.. tough times at sprint.. and another loss of 539m free cash flow

Yeah. That’s true.

They’ve got 2.5 GHz on about 80% of their Macro Sites, 30,000 small cells (including mini macros and strand mounts), and about 1,500 Massive MIMO units.

This could have been much worse. However, at a certain point, Sprint will run out of road on its cost cutting initiatives.

They’re painting a honest picture now to get that merger approved.

 

 

They sound so boring over the phone. My God.

Ya, at this point there’s absolutely no justification for any further network growth as there is absolutely no return in investment.. if no merger, I think it’s a given sprint lowers capex immediately. Not trying to be super negative, but these numbers with debt that’s coming due. No way sprint as a stand alone keeps up spending on capex

I think the reason for the shareholder lawsuits is that these reports weren’t completely honest.... and because its FCC Filings painted an honest assessment of Sprint’s situation.

These investor reports do not contain the apocalyptic data/language that Sprint used in its FCC filings to support its case for a merger.

See the Sprint’s current liquidity status on page 20: https://investors.sprint.com/files/doc_financials/quarterly/2018/Q4/Fiscal-4Q18-Sprint-Quarterly-Investor-Update-FINAL.pdf

It seems it’s starting to get thin...

I listened to the Investor's Relations webcast...   I was so difficult to listen to.   I don't even know who Sprint had speaking as I didn't recognize 2 of them.    No more Marcelo, as I know.. he's moved on...  nothing from the CTO, ...    they didn't really offer many answers to many questions... kind of Rubbish.   Just makes me hope the merger happens soon.    The last question and answer:  Basically the out look on Sprint's future if the merger doesn't go through?  Answer:  Sprint will not be able to operate as a national carrier as we know it.  They will be unable to compete with the others.

    • 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. 
    • I remember that Textra could ask for a delivered notice. Not sure exactly how that works. Haven't used it in a long time though, Android Messages works fine for me plus get the benefit of RCS.
    • It'll definitely be interesting to see what they do, especially considering there's now a lot more money in the pipeline! Personally, I'm most excited to see what they'll be doing with the new 5G small cells - this should be an opportunity for them to get a super dense n41, LTE-LAA, mmWave, and maybe even CBRS (there is 80MHz of GAA available...) infill. Can't wait to see what they'll be doing with these. This also brings up the question of how they'll be addressing mmWave in the future - have they been holding off on upgrades due to their n41 rollout, or because they're waiting for these small cells to be available? Reminds me of how they paused their LTE-LAA macro rollout, but then began to equip their existing LTE oDAS nodes with LTE-LAA. I am curious about their plans for C-Band, but I'm kinda of the impression that it's a very low priority for them. I doubt we'll be seeing any C-Band rollout for at least another year or so, T-Mobile's spectrum isn't available for deployment until Dec 2023. All that said, their n41 rollout does leave them with a ton of capacity to work with. Makes me wonder if upgrades (besides spectrum reallocation) in NYC will be put on the backburner for a little while. Lots of non-NYC Sprint sites to convert, and I've even spotted some recent Greenfield rural buildout upstate (if you can believe that). On another note, very amusing to see the T-Mobile subreddit respond to that NYC mmWave speedtest the other day.
