Other than attempting to show how well we're holding up this flimsy house of cards? Not really.

But, for what it's worth, I continue to experience fantastic speeds and improved service here in Atlanta. More coverage holes (like my job) have been filled recently. Pretty cool despite minimum investment!

I noticed this when I was in Detroit this past weekend. Before service in the RenCen was nonexistent or unusable if you actually managed to grab an LTE connection. This year seemed to be better in that I actually got decent speeds deep inside the building where I could barely hit 200Kbps with worthless band 26 before. Speeds weren't amazing (10-30Mbps) but it was actually usable. T-Mobile was almost completely unusable the entire time and Verizon (who has a DAS in there) was extremely slow. I also noticed improvements at the airport. 

Test I did one night in the main ballroom:

Sprint DL/UL: 14.4Mbps/810Kbps

T-Mobile DL/UL: 8.21Mbps/830Kbps

Verizon DL/UL: 2.12Mbps/7.46Mbps

For me, it's happening more often and more places where Sprint is the best performing.

A little video I made this morning, from my personable experience on the V50, and yes there's a typo

Another coverage map update today. 5G expansion seems to be continuing at a good pace (except for Chicago for some reason). I'm seeing live 5G sites well outside of metro LA and other sites expanding outwards from the first 9 cities.

Looks like in the NYC market 5G is starting to spread to parts of North Jersey and Long Island. It's pretty cool to see the pace that Sprint is deploying 5G at.

Found 5G in a couple places the last few weeks. I have confirmed it on in Norfolk, VA and Tampa, FL.

https://www.pcmag.com/news/372379/sprint-plans-much-cheaper-5g-phones

Quote

Sprint owns 160-190MHz of prime mid-band spectrum in much of the country, but it's only using 120MHz. Even that's up from when its 5G network started; in some cities such as New York, it was using 60MHz for 4G and only 40MHz for 5G. That's up to 60/60 in all of its nine markets, Sullivan said, offering improved 5G speeds. It's also moved uploads to 5G, improving upload speeds.

So what about the other 40-70MHz? That could double Sprint's 5G speeds from what we're seeing now. The problem is hardware availability, Sullivan said.

"We're working with our network manufacturers on when they can actually produce a massive MIMO radio head upgrade that can actually support more than 60MHz. So it is a limitation," he said. "Ultimately, getting to 100MHz or more on the NR [5G] side is our goal."

So confirmation here that they're using 5G for uploads. I wasn't sure if this was doable for NSA.

Outgoing call issues from Sprint phones to Windstream landlines not working in Ohio.

 

Have tested from all of our lines in the Columbus market, phones from the Cincinnati market and some friends from the Columbus area.

 

Also have confirmation that some in the Columbus market have complained to local stores.

 

Anyone able to look into this or have similar issues?

 

Also, same issue with Android and iPhones, volte on and off.

Forget 5G. I have witnessed interband CA between b25/b26 and b25/b41 and it was game changing for the reliability and indoor experience. Everyone who said b26 should not use CA don't know what they are talking about and have not experienced the awesome indoor abilities that come with it. Have you ever seen b26 like that? Don't worry I will wait. This makes Ericsson markets severely behind in network reliability. I just realized how much better Sprint would be if this was nationwide.

More interband goodness. I might move to Denver. The experience was amazing and so was the Sprint network.2236234f27babea862e53f9fe4dc94ff.jpgede48abe521eb183f31a6518ddeeceb9.jpg459b62dbb539a3093148f9ea403188cd.jpg8dc5cd6152d860e847a1e1eb365580bc.jpg

Those speeds are so great. Man, I remember back in 2015 all of us fantasizing about how awesome this would be while simultaneously lamenting that it probably wouldn't happen until like 2020 because Sprint. Here we are. 

Glad to see someone finally "flipped the switch" on this amazing software and you were able to enjoy it and get great samples user @Terrell352. This is what Denver needed to keep speeds up. Let's hope it spreads on the network quickly!

Unfortunately most Sprint devices don’t have it enabled. I had to force it to work by using my MSL to turn on all CA bands. Sprint is extremely foolish to not have figured this out sooner because most of these test was indoors where normally b25 or b26 would have been alone. Most people in Denver is not experiencing this because the devices don’t have it enabled. That’s Sprints fault. Here in Ericsson land in Florida they don’t have it enabled at towers so it’s back to the trash indoor experience. T-Mobile will hopefully get this right if they take over.

Its unfortunate, I do not believe TMobile will be anywhere near as good as those advocating for the merger especially in the beginning, not to mention they will need to divulge all Sprint lowband. 

Regardless, this is what Sprint needs to replicate in all markets, starting with markets that lack macro density since 5G has been awesome in cities and are less in need of this..

Unfortunately, with this merger looming who knows what parts of the network deployment take priority.

Bottom line, the "new" TMobile will be worse for a long time before it gets better.

Here's hoping Sprint continues to deploys this and the merger fails.😤
