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

I'm still shocked and amazed how successful S4GRU has been in staying online, remaining relevant and keeping quality members and staff all with member donations from a relatively small pool. When we

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

Live on forever? Not in reality, but maybe in memory.

 

Sprint will have to start taking a hard look at accounts that still have sweetheart "unlimited" data deals, such as SERO and Everything Data. It could be done on a case by case basis. Any accounts that are using "unlimited" data significantly above the average should be allowed no further subsidized upgrades or even forced to switch plans.

The industry just needs to kill off subsidies.

Obamacare should convene "death panels" on subsidy and "unlimited" data.

 

;)

Too many Republicans would complain about that infringing on business choice. Though technically speaking on the particulars of death panels on technology, they could add a suicide code into devices, such as one if a person used too much data, but then human rights groups would complain.

You are developing a sense of humor.  Maybe there is hope for you after all.

Maybe the announcement is about the arrival of the new Sprint exclusive Sharp Aquos Xx.

It's a neat looking phone, but would Sprint really try to hype up an event to announce that?  Did the original Sharp Aquos sell well?

So they brought back the my way plan that I currently have. I wonder what for? Not unless they are going the phase out the $50 and $60 unlimited. What it did notice is that this plan had the guarantee but it doesn't say for what services just unlimited. When I signed up it said for talk,text and data.

My Way plans haven't gone away. They just stopped pushing them when Framily and all of the no contract plans came into play.

Look at the T&C's:

 

"Usage Limitations: Other plans may receive prioritized bandwidth availability. Streaming video speeds may be limited to 1 Mbps."

 

 

Makes you think there may be plans in which there is no prioritized bandwidth availability...?

Sprint dropped that recently when they committed to net neutrality. They also emphasized that they never prioritized based on plan. I'm fairly certain that streaming video isn't throttled either because I can stream 1080p YouTube just fine.

Apparently they de-committed on the new unlimited family plan. They are limiting that to 600 kbps for streaming video: http://www.s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/7066-Unlimited-family-plan/page__view__findpost__p__427167

What lasts longer: unlimited data or best buy brick-and-mortar stores?

Marcelo has a big push to simplify plans and consumer offerings, so if this is plan-related, should be interesting to see

If he's in Tokyo today though, will he be around to introduce anything tomorrow?

    • I've seen n41 in rural-ish areas already, plus some B41 on sites that were 25/26 only a year ago. They seem to be getting better about not just deploying a single band in places, though from what I've seen the more rural setup appears to be whatever B/n71 they have, plus a 5x5 B2 carrier to use as an NR anchor. Narrower bandwidths go further, hence running 5x5 when they definitely have the spectrum for more.
    • So, my home connection has changed, and NOT for the better. I can hope this represents some temporary status during a changeover . . . Update: back on Sprint B26 with download of 15Mbps
    • Figures, I check every day to see if the LG V60 has an update and the one day I didn't an update is issued. Lol  Thanks, updating now. Will check signalcheckpro to see if any info is missing on my end.    
    • The unusual factor is the Band 41 holdings in the primary county for each of the 3 New York cities.  T-Mobile effectively owns all Band 41 in Albany, where they are also getting 60Mhz of n77.  Where as in the n77 20Mhz markets for Rochester and Syracuse, Krisar, Inc. - George W. Bott fragments the n41 spectrum.  In Rochester they could do 100Mhz and 40Mhz.  Syracuse is 60Mhz plus 20Mhz and 20Mhz.
    • Hmm that looks like NSA 5G with LTE information missing, since there is no 5G cell identity info.. but who knows. Send a diagnostic and I'll see if it's hiding anything good behind the scenes!
