CCA/RRPP live date?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Does anyone know when the Roaming agreement will become live so sprint phones can start LTE roaming on its partner networks? I am looking to buy a Nexus 6 as its fully CCA/RRPP compliant. I tried to ask sprint and they just told me to visit the newsroom for updates. its been about 8 months since this was first announced by sprint. 

 

Thanks,

 

John

It takes time for stuff to happen.  lol.  Think about how long its taken Sprint to do the NV upgrades.  So I can imagine that it will still be a bit until they actually are fully CCA/RRPP compliant...

Hello,  I thought this is the whole point of the CCA/RRPP though.  NV upgrades took a while as sprint had to upgrade there own network. with CCA/RRPP sprint is using another providers network that is already built.

I don't know any dates, but, I assume that, once the network itself is in place, it should be fairly easy to implement. It's just an update to whatever the LTE version of a PRL is, correct? Maybe digiblur can give some insight.

Is this program ( thinking mainly of US Cellular ) affected any at all by the 9,000 site expansion plan? Desperately need some US Cellular coverage..

Not affected at all. And we have been hearing increased chatter about USCC joining the Sprint RRPP lately. Maybe coming soon?

And next step is a USCC buyout aka ntelos buyout?

Buyout isn't going to happen anytime soon. Uscc has repeatedly said they aren't on the market. But an rrpp partnership would make a buyout seem like much less of a necessity.

i don't know if it has anything to do with CCA/RRPP or not, but i've been seeing more and more PCI numbers show up in my neighboring cell list that don't belong to sprint. unfortunately all the people i know on other carriers have samsung phones (that don't yet show PCI) so i can't use them to track down the PCI.

 

it used to be i would see 1 here or 1 there and now its almost everywhere i go i'm seeing new PCI that i hadn't seen before. my main 2 guesses are that its USCC that i'm seeing and it has to do with this going live hopefully soon, or verizon has been installing XLTE around here and as more towers get that i'm somehow seeing the PCI from their towers.

much less of a necessity? Remember how we lost [native coverage in] Montana?

    • Some recent non-urban new builds in Utah, which are a mix of Sprint conversions and new site builds: Central Cedar City Enoch Parowan Beaver Wallsburg I'm also hearing of future new site builds in places that currently have weak / no signal on all carriers like Fountain Green, Oak City, Woodland, and along Hwy 191 in the canyon north of Helper by the Power Plant. There are also an unbelievable number of Sprint conversions happening in the urban Wasatch Front corridor as well. 
    • Only time I have gotten a free sim from them is when I "purchased" some "free" phones from T-Mobile, unless I go back to when they were a distant 4th carrier.  My four other MVNOs are feast or famine, so I try to keep several hanging around.  I have noticed different versions have different capabilities, and newer is not always better.  They typically force you to upgrade when you need to activate another discount period.  
    • Hard to imagine they're actually worth much as easy as they are to get free though.....they keep sending them out unsolicited like nuts.  We just got like a 3rd packet of them less than a month ago and got another email notifying "SIM card is on the way".  
    • E-bay.  The physical sims do have one advantage: they are not tied to your phone, thus you can change phones mostly without your carriers permission (except Sprint billing). Benefits signal hunters, travellers, and thieves.
    • Maybe in a museum? When the phone manufacturers follow Apple’s lead and go all eSIM it will be a moot point. At least in the states.
