How is signal propagation compared to before and other bands now?

Curious about this as well.

Too early to tell.  But I will say the Mimo antenna takes up so little space.  They should be able to put that antenna on everything.

That unit weighs far more than an 8t8r antenna and radio setup FYI.

I'm familiar .  It should weight about the same as the RRU and antenna together.  Well thats what Johnny Saw would say in conferences.

Looks like a Nokia Massive MIMO unit! How are speeds around that area now?

It is.  Speeds so far are around the same as with 8x8 antennas. Device Im using is Moto X2 force if that matters.

How is coverage/propagation with the new equipment?

Too early to tell. I do get more stalls while using data.   If that makes sense.

Not really.  I think they need to tune everything.  The same places where 8x8 b41 struggled. Still struggles with mimo.

Gotchu fren. When you get your data points in, let us know how many carriers and what frequencies you are seeing. I wonder if and how they will shuffle anything to accommodate New Radio, like the Magic Box or UE carriers. What is the available bandwidth Sprint leases on 2.5 in your daily travels? Thanks for what you have put together; these are great pictures.

    • My UNLOCKED S-9 can not transmit to the cell site if Band 41 is weak either.  It supposedly has HPUE but I do not see any improvement over phones without HPUE.   To make it wore, recently the parameters have changed that allow me to hang onto Band 41 and band 25 with a signal of -130.  Nothing works at the level, but apparently somebody decided to keep me on extremely poor connections and not allow the phone to drop to a better band.  It probably was done in preparation for VOLTE, but it sure has killed my data experience.   If I am trying to download an attachment to a G-Mail message, I can not do it on band 41 when being held to very bad levels.    -120 was not working and now I find my phone hanging onto -130 level.
    • June security update hit my G7 today - G710P16a (extremely fast reboot/install on this one at that).  Still no sign of Pie unfortunately.
    • Does anyone here have an issue with Band 41 not working well (or at all) on their S10 series device at signal levels of -104 dBmv or worse?  It's like the phone can't reach the tower to send requests.  I never had this issue with my Note 8 and it worked well up to around -120 dBmv. I can't help but wonder if my launch-day S10+ is defective.
    • I'm willing to give T-Mobile credit for at least publishing a map.  As far as I know, Verizon has yet to publish one. - Trip
