As of today, I'm done with SERO-P...

...and upping the amount that I pay to Sprint.

 

What got me to do this? Their business plans.

 

So I'll be getting unlimited voice + data + 3GB tethering on my phone for $45/mo with no contract (no subsidy, obviously). Plus another 3.1GB shared between a Zing and a Galaxy Tab 4 (which I'll probably mail to my littlest brother for use at college after I play with it for a few days) for another $45/mo, on-contract with subsidies slightly above the ETFs for those lines.

 

Consider this my vote of confidence in Sprint's ability to get Spark running everywhere I want it. I'm already nearly fully covered with B25+B26, and it's no mistake that all three devices I'll have (Nexus 5, Zing, GTab) are tri-band.

 

We'll see what happens. But I for one will enjoy having all of that legit tethering data at my disposal, in case for example Time Warner Cable decides to have another backbone failure, or whatnot.

Sounds pretty bad ass. I'd like to pick up those options.

I'll have to look into their business plans.  That sounds substantially better than what I've looked at before.

 

EDIT: I just looked again and see $65 for that same plane.  Are you really getting a 30% discount on top of that?

 

Thanks for the heads up.

I was wondering the same thing. I just looked and seen $65 for that...Plus how did you get the share pool?

    • I'm still getting Band 26 and Band 41 from keep sites in Crown Heights and Bay Ridge. I haven't seen any Band 25 though. I'm starting to think T-Mobile shut down Sprint's PCS spectrum here. I wonder if we'll get 5MHz Band 25 + 5MHz n25 carrier or if we'll just get 2 5MHz n25 carriers.
    • Still seeing strong T-Mobile HSPA+ and some weak Sprint B26 (311-490) in the north Bedstuy area Sprint eNB 6705 (40.70091884265787,-73.94344902067445) is broadcasting the keep PLMN Sprint eNB 899078/899079 (40.83022854043739,-73.94830306659236) has been converted, though the site has not yet been lit up. The density up there is pretty insane - 400ft from the site just North, 600ft from the site just South. Spotted another Dish site near City College (1606 Amsterdam Ave). This is not a former Sprint site, and the neighboring Sprint site (across the street) has not been decommissioned. Still not seeing the Dish PLMN in this area.
    • Just cycled through where I'm sitting...not near any keep sites...and 25/26 don't exist...locking to them but.ps me over to AT&T MFBI (why TMo isn't doing 2/25 MFBI here I don't know...maybe Nokia equipment can't do it?). TMo B41 is visible, but Sprint isn't. Two nights ago I saw 10 MHz Sprint B41 at the top of the band. Not sure whether that's live today.
    • Dish has base stations and antennas already set up for n26, and phones are starting to come out supporting that. Yes, it's a 5x5 patchwork, but it can basically provide an anchor for higher-frequency NR that augments n71, which in many places is only 5x5 on Dish.
    • Sprint still alive on all 3 bands here in the South Puget Sound area this morning. Robert
