Seems to imply greater control from HQ and /or freeing up CEO for more marketing focus.

I believe the  best part is leading Sprint's relationships with key network equipment vendors.

 

Sounds like he will be cracking the whip on latent suppliers/slow installers then possibly suffer monetary consequences or contract cancellations.

In the course of trying to learn more about Miyakawa, I came across several articles/press-releases about Softbank's LTE TDD deployments in Japan.

 

In the link below they talk about having 50-100 base stations per square kilometer.  That's insane!  Would Sprint ever do that in metro areas here?

According to the Softbank website, they are expanding to 94,000 base stations as of March 2014.

Sounds like Midtown Manhattan in NYC. If Sprint managed to do that throughout the entire city, they'd have no competition. The problem is, that's expensive.

I wonder what's their new strategy for small cells. We haven't heard much about their strategy since early summer and the last thing I remembered was they plan on using "spark cells" that will include both 1900 & 2500 spectrum

Anything that will help sprint. Sprint has everything they need to be successful. Now it's just a matter of getting stuff done. The issues that we experienced in NV 1.0 should NEVER  happen again if Sprint wants to succeed.

Everybody is having problems with their deployment, even the mighty Verizon. My brother in law's Verizon 5s is stuck on 1x a lot of the time, even though we are supposedly fully covered with Verizon LTE.

Maybe working with Artemis Networks?

In US, just NYC/CHICAGO need this kind of density. So it won't be too crazy for them.

In Japan, they may have 10 cities need this kind of deployment.

But their current priority should be deployment of 8T8R in big metros and B26 across the nation.

LA, San Francisco, perhaps a few others.

That's all true but that's looking at the metropolitan areas of cities. The difference between New York and many other cities is that most people who work in NYC also live in NYC. Most people commute from the other 4 boroughs to Manhattan more often than not. That's not to say people don't come from other places, because they do. I had a teacher in middle school that used to commute from Connecticut every day.

 

In terms of density of the city itself (city boundary) NYC is ranked first with a density of 27,560 per square mile while Los Angeles has a density of 7,722 per square mile. Chicago has 11,519 per square mile. San Francisco has 3,611 per square mile. Boston has 7,207 per square mile.

This article has some interesting information about how Softbank (including inherited networks) has built out a very dense 2.5 GHz TD-LTE network in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya.

 


 

Highlights include:

• They use omnidirectional antennas instead of a multi-sector config.

• 50-150 sites a square kilometer area

• Distance between sites can be as low as 164 feet.

• Base stations are centralized.

• Look at the picture at the end of the article for a typical installation.

    • One more thing.. I just took a photo of a random glass on my counter in low light with both phones with no modifications to the stock camera settings.  The difference is night and day.  The photo taken with the Note looks crisp. Details are sharp. The dim scene is brightened beautifully.  Even the curtains in the background remain sharp and clear even when zoomed in.  The Pixel 7 Pro attempt at the same photo is laughable.  Blurrycam UFO type horrendous.  Did I get a faulty device?  This thing is horrific.  Something seems waaaay off.  
    • I received my P7 Pro 2 days ago and - coming from my Note 10 plus - I absolutely hate it!  I didn't expect to hate it so much but even the screen looks grossly inferior to my Note 10+ even though I know that makes no sense, at least on paper.  But I'm holding them side by side right now and the Pixel 7 Pro display looks grainy and borderline blurry compared to my several year old Note 10+.  What's going on here??  I toggled on full resolution thinking that would change things but....no.  the screen just looks awful.  Also...is there a way to mirror the Pixel 7 Pro to your smart tv without WiFi?  I've always done this with my Samsung phone. I thought allcast would be able to help out with that but it seems to not even function with this phone.  I'm about to smash this damn thing against the wall but I can't because I need it in one piece so I can return it ASAP to Best Buy.  I've honestly never been so wildly disappointed in a device.  Definitely going to switch it for the S22 Ultra. I don't understand the hype with this device.  Other than instant Android updates (which may not be the best idea after all) ...I can no longer see the allure.  
    • Any word on how SCP works with lineageos 19 on a oneplus nord n200 5g? Alternatively, how does the modem option work with rooted Android 11 on the same device? Maybe it has been depreciated in the past given the APIs. But since those are failing with NSA was planning to revisit the rooted modem options.
    • It doesn't include T-Mobile because AT&T objected to the T-Mobile applications.  The fact that anything at all was filed will add time. - Trip
