Turns out, Sprint does use "true" 5G for its uploads, but a spokesperson argued that "80 percent" of the carrier's network is on the downlink," and that it could add more uplink capacity if it needed to.

It sounds like they're using standalone with TDD config 5, at least in NYC.

They added 4x4 Rank 4 in NYC 40mhz NR+60mhz LTE its now hitting speeds of nearly 600mbs.

How do you know they are using TDD config 5?

They said that 80% of the network was configured for download.

Something to take a look at.

Here's a little humor for the day... Looks like they told the rookie to loop up the excess at the pole. I've seen many figure 8 service loops before but damn...

Does Sprint have 4x4 MIMO enabled for band 26 anywhere?
No. They are setting up for 4x2 MIMO but 4x4 mimo cant be done yet because they dont have a device that uses 4 antenna on b26.

So 4 downlink and 2 uplink?

I don't believe that's how it works. I any case in conjunction with 256qam speeds theoretical can reach 75 down and 25 up on a 5x5 b26 slice. It's even less with 4x2 mimo.

Ok. Thanks!

Many sites are 4x compatible but there aren't any devices with four lowband antennas. Nevertheless 4x at the site improves signal stability (at the cell edge) as well as propagation/penetration because there are simply more transmit paths.

Ok. Someone is convinced that they are getting 67 down and 30 up over band 26 and I'm like "no".

People tried to tell them that but they threw a hissy fit. I think I managed to get through to them though.

Unless it was 26+25 ca can't happen

I seen the conversation. I personally think he roamed on Tmobile briefly and didnt notice.

That's what I thought. 5MHz 26 + 10MHz 25.

Well he said he turned b25 and b41 off so CA shouldn't be possible.

Doesn't that just set it so it doesn't use 25 and 41 as the primary carrier?

10mhz of b25 cannot produce uploads that high. Even 15mhz of b25 would have to be perfect conditions to do 41 up.

No that makes it so you can't use those bands at all. It turns them off

Well Sprint only has B and G block in that area. They can only do 15x10 b25 at the max unless they just recently switched B block for C block with T-Mobile. That would give both contiguous 20x20.

Engineering screen and speed test at same time or it didnt happen. That's LAW
