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. 
Which area was this at?

Yeah. That's why I was saying unless they just recently swapped. He must've been roaming on T-Mobile then to be getting uploads that fast.

That's NR UL. I'm honestly surprised Sprint hasn't moved towards a more flexible config, especially with all of the negative press they've got over their poor upload speeds.

NR TDD Config 2 is exclusively flex time slots. This would allow you to use all of the time slots for downloading one second and all of the time slots for uploading the next. Maybe equipment isn't ready for TDD flex configs yet?

So something interesting I discovered. Power was out in my mom's area today due to Hurricane Dorian. CenturyLink was down. What's interesting was she could only get a 1x voice connection. No data connection. As soon as the power came back her data connection came back. Thoughts?

No back up generator or the storm knocked it out

Why'd she still have a 1x voice connection then?

A usable signal on 1x800 is available much further away than the distance any Sprint LTE band is usable.  It was likely from another site that is further away or was voice roaming on another CDMA carrier in the area.

Next closest site is 3 miles away with about a billion trees along the way.

A 1x*800 signal can travel much more than 3 miles and even with some trees hurting the signal strength.  The signal can also be blocked at even less than 3 miles depending on what the obstruction is.

So what's the story with EBS? Is it going up for auction or does Sprint own it?

Altice lunched their MVNO and pricing seems very competitive. It also runs off of both Sprint and AT&T's networks.

I'm curious what the threshold is before throttling kicks in. Just saw the vague line about heavy data users could experience decreased speeds. This would be awesome for family in East Texas that currently use ATT service. Is it really just $30 per line for those that don't already have a service through them?

Altice Mobile does not offer 3G or data plans other than 4G LTE and Altice WiFi.

Performance with Altice’s “Unlimited” plan. The "Unlimited" data option provides unlimited data usage at a regular monthly rate per line (promotional rates may vary). Speeds for video streaming over LTE and hotspot tethering will be reduced to 2G (e.g., 128 Kbps) after 50 gigabytes (GB) of data usage in a month for the remainder of the billing period after the allotment is exceeded. Subject to this allotment policy, use of your device as a WiFi hotspot will be unlimited at 600 Kbps speeds, and streaming video will be at DVD quality (480p).

I would switch to Altice Mobile right now if it weren't for the fact that they don't cover most of the destinations that I travel to regularly and I'd probably lose RCS. Otherwise I'd switch in a heartbeat for unlimited access to both Sprint and AT&T's networks for $20/month since I am an Optimum customer. I wonder if they'll add more international destinations soon.

Another thing worth noting is that they claim that they're not deprioritized compared to regular postpaid Sprint or AT&T customers like most MVNOs are because of the agreements they signed with both carriers.

Yeah, they have an interesting plan.  Unfortunately, I'm not in one of their service areas.

Found this gem last night in the STL area. Found 5G on two towers. Pretty sure there is more.
