Recommended Posts

Yay! New S4GRU countdown clock!

 

If you don't know about our Countdown clock, you haven't been here long enough. ????

Does that mean a shut down of all wimax broadcast? Even protection sites?

 

Maybe all protection sites will be converted to full build. I don't see why not if they have to broadcast 2500MHz at them anyway. If they don't allow consumers to use wimax, wouldn't that mean they'd have to be upgraded to LTE?

 

Do consumers have to be able to use the spectrum in order to satisfy the build out requirements?

LTE only or full builds?

 

Well, in the schedule so far, it is only showing B41 dates.  So we don't know to interpret that to include a full Network Vision conversion, just an 8T8R conversion or even just turning on the B41 LTE on a WiMax Dual Mode station.

well some wimax sites aren't running on dual mode equipment. We have two sites out of three here. So my guess they will maybe throw old dual mode RRUs on those panels, and just turn on LTE, or make them full builds.

This is true.  But not all Protection sites are scheduled yet, either.  So, it could be possible, that all the ones schedules so far to date are on Dual Mode Equipment sites.

The only thing is poor old expedience sites are probably left out again.

It probably means a free refurbished EVO LTE/Galaxy Nexus on a two year contract or something lol

actually last time they gave iPhones for like 99 cents or something along those lines.

This was for iDen to CDMA migrations

Oh right, forgive me.

 

EVEN WORSE! They'll give you an iPhone!  :rasp:

They'll probably give out midrange spark devices that will be part of the same lineage as the Sharp Aquos Crystal to increase triband adoption in the budget range of $100-300.

Not so much.

 

iDEN deserved to die.  WiMAX deserved a chance that it never really received.

Possibly, but that ship has apparently sailed. So we might as well have fun with it.

    • Went to Rolling Loud NYC at Citi Field this weekend. Over 60,000 people in attendance. Verizon is a sponsor of the festival this year so naturally they had a ton of COWs set up at the festival. I counted at least 4. As a result, they were virtually the only carrier consistently able to provide a data connection. I didn't see any Verizon 5G, only LTE. T-Mobile on the other hand was a very interesting experience. I was seeing an eNB 331804 which I'm 99% sure is a COW. They also seems to be doing some sort of traffic management because I noticed that if I left my phone idle in my pocket, it would drop down to No Service/SOS or sometimes it would sit on EDGE. But the second that I needed to send a text, make a call, or even use Twitter my phone would switch over to LTE or 5G to complete the task. In an active data session, my phone would constantly flip between Band 2, Band 66, and Band 41. Sometimes, I'd catch myself on the COW and other times I'd get pushed over to eNB 875868, the relatively new Sprint conversion nearby. The network moved at a snails pace though. Where Verizon took about 15 seconds to load Twitter or send a pic, T-Mobile could take up to a minute to complete the same task. Here's some photos of the COWs I spotted. I think that the first two are Verizon and the one in the distance in the third pic is T-Mobile's single COW, not nearly enough for an event that size.

    • You need to have Wi-Fi Calling enabled and also have made at least one phone call over Wi-Fi Calling prior to using the inflight Wi-Fi.
