What about HSPA+ for data while on a call?

If Sprint is still around in 2022, they will have no choice but to use LTE for calls or expand their coverage as att plans to shutdown Hspa+ in early 2022

I'm not sure if any carrier is doing VoLTE roaming yet, are they? The tricky part might be setting up the EUTRA session? I just know it's not at straightforward as regular LTE data roaming.

Yeah they were. Sprint for data on T-Mobile,uscc and att. I think USCC might be the only LTE for calls I think

So is 25+41+41+41 a combo that Sprint uses now?
I haven't seen it. I wish they would.

That's just 41+41 or would it include 41+25, 41+26, 25+26, etc?

Just 41+41. To get TD/FDD upload CA I'm not even sure if its possible.

FDD/TDD UL CA is not in the short term plan. The goal is to use L1900 for uplink where possible. Even a 5x5 L1900 carrier with 4x4 MIMO and 256QAM can upload in excess of 30mbps.

If that's the case I'm missing something because on a tower in a rural place in perfect line of sight using a S10 5G will give me 38 max on upload using b25 10mhz. Either 4x4 mimo or 256qam must be missing.

At this point I'm not holding my breath for FDD+ TDD until New TMobile

You can get 4xca under combined TMO and Sprint. 2+2+66+71. Maybe future device with 25+25+25+66+71

It'll be only 2+25+25+4+71 for a grand total of 30MHz on the downlink. T-Mo band 2 is only 5x5 (as of right now). Sprint has 2 5x5 b25 carriers. T-Mo band 4 is only 5x5. Band 71 is only 10x10.

    • I'm envisioning the others carriers raising their flutes to toast with champagne and sprint with coors banquet
    • Band 2 on T-Mobile got expanded to 15MHz.
    • I think they stay. Shentel and T-Mobile are in negotiations about either acquisition or affiliation.
    • I wonder what happened to the Boost stores in Shentel land.
    • Hey folks, I haven't been around here in a long time. I guess I just got distracted by other things, especially after Sprint 4G LTE became commonly available for me.   Then, in February of 2018, I defected from Sprint to T-Mobile. That move allowed me to get on the "T-Mobile ONE 55+" plan, (yeah, I'm an old geezer) and at the time, grab a limited time offer add-on called "ONE Plus International" that adds a lot of features, but most importantly "UNLIMITED 4G LTE Hotspot" on a phone.   The move was both for the service and price. I was paying Sprint $179 for service on one phone, and one USB 3G modem. The modem was what kept me with Sprint for so long. I bought it in 2007, when mobile data was just starting to catch on in popularity. Everyone else had low data caps and high overage charges at the time, but, Sprint was slow to jump on that bandwagon. They even had an ad campaign at the time, something like: "Use all the data you want, have fun"! I bought the modem outright, and paid $59.99/mo for unlimited 3G data. As an over the road truck driver, at the time, that was the same price I paid Comcast for home Internet, that was hardly home to use. I canceled Comcast, and that USB thing became my only non-phone Internet connection.   The bad part of that was, shortly after I got that deal, Sprint discontinued that plan, and I was stuck. If I made ANY changes to that line/device, I would lose that plan, and have to take whatever offers were current. I couldn't activate any new device on the data account. So I milked that device and plan for just over 11 years, until Feb. 2018. After so long, the device was struggling, and the data was just damn slow.   After my upgrade to T-Mobile, I have my main phone, (currently a OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren edition), an Aristo 2 Plus, used mostly as a hotspot, and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10" with unlimited 4G LTE, all for $132.41. About $45 a month less than what I gave Sprint, and I have one extra device, and all with much faster data.   On Sprint, my average speed was usually less than 15/2, on T-Mobile I get over 100 down and around 40 up.   Of course with this arrangement, one day I will find myself in a similar situation, a line stuck on old tech, even though I CAN upgrade my T-Mobile device, the data add-on specifically says "4G LTE data", So I hope that sticks around for a while as 5G becomes a thing. If I make any changes on that line, I will lose that add-on.           Sorry for all the rambling, I just looked at all the stuff I just typed, and can't bring myself to delete all that work. I guess I just got nostalgic when Facebook on Tuesday showed me a memory post from 2013, the pics are below. My first cell phone was a Nextel, that's how I wound up on Sprint, after that merger. It was 7 years ago already, that Sprint shut off Nextel. Now, Sprint is about to be shut off by T-Mobile. Everything changes. You can't see the date on the pic with "NO SIGNAL", those old Nextel phones didn't even have a proper clock, it just displayed what the network sent it, so, no signal, no clock. How far we have come.   Anyway, I guess with the merger, I'm back in the family, so here I am looking to learn about a new rollout, this time 5G on 2.5 GHz, specifically in the West Michigan area.   Sent from my HD1925 using Tapatalk
