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?

Lost Montana?

 

Yes, you did not hear the news?  Mighty Canada invaded.  We were no match for the Mounties, and we lost Montana -- now known as South Alberta.

    • Strange business model that they keep around all these pricing plans. 1000s of plans per carrier is reportedly not uncommon.  Training customer support must be a nightmare. Even MVNOs have legacy plans. A downside of their contract mentality I guess. Best to change contracts during a recession. But then all carriers try to squeeze out legacy plan benefits as they grow old.  
    • Everything "Uncarrier" is becoming "Carrier" again. Because of the Credit Limit that T-Mobile put on our account for no reason at all (and wouldn't change/update the last time I checked all the way up to the CEO), I don't plan on buying/upgrading our iPhones through T-Mobile. I'm going through Apple directly. Looks like I'll be going through Google and Samsung directly for our other lines for upgrades. Also, we're staying on Sprint Max given the ridiculous pricing for Go5G Plus. On Sprint Max, we currently pay for our Plan: $260 for 7 Voice Lines $25 for two Wearable Lines. (One is $10/Month. The other is $15/Month because the AutoPay discount only applies up to 8 lines.) Total: $285/Month vs. Go5G Plus (Per the Broadband Facts "nutrition label" on the T-Mobile Website): https://www.t-mobile.com/commerce/cell-phone-plans $360 - ($5 AutoPay Discount x 7 Voice Lines) = $325 The Watch Plans show as either $12/Month or $15/Month: https://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phone-plans/affordable-data-plans/smartwatches So this is about the same for the wearables as what we're paying now. Overall, it's quite more than we're paying now to switch plans. Ridiculous....
    • Welcome back! That's similar to my best (1250ish). A few people have broken 2000 on good sites. 
    • Lots of new multi-carrier nodes popping up in Bushwick. Crown Castle Fiber node at Ridgewood & Palmetto:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Irving & Jefferson:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Wilson & Noll:  
    • I’m surprised they’re running a 5x5 Band 66 carrier still. In NYC T-Mobile has 25x25 AWS and they’re running 20x20 Band 66 and 5x5 n66 (in testing). Presumably when n66 commercially launches they’ll drop Band 66 down to 15x15 and go straight for a 10x10 n66 carrier like they did with n25.
