Netgear's Zing replacement for Sprint


Recommended Posts

Appears will be Aircard 779S-100. It's CCA/RRPP compliant as it has LTE Bands 2, 4, 5, 12, 25, 26 and 41. Also on board is 802.11 b/g/n. No sign of 802.11ac unfortunately. Another apparent oversight is 5 GHz capability. This puppy looks to be 2.4 GHz only which would be disappointing. I've only had a cursory look at it though. I still have to look for things like carrier aggregation, 3GPP2 band classes (I can't imagine that it wouldn't have that) and GSM/W-CDMA availability. I check later.


FCC id is PY3AC779SS.

AFAIK, the SS model (FCCID: PY3AC779SS / AirCard 779S-100) is LTE-only in order to cut costs for regional operators and Sprint.


The S model (FCCID: PY3AC779S / AirCard 779S-200) is GSM+WCDMA+LTE for North America.

The FCC OET docs have been up for two weeks.  Honestly, the RF specs are not that impressive.  ERP/EIRP no greater than that of a decent handset.  And no CDMA2000.

    • Curious as to how SCP works with it regarding NSA, particularly in markets with n41 BW=100 and second channel.

    • T-Mobile eNB 879491/879493/879494 on the keep site map is located at 40.77536940167816, -73.92011957697034. Sprint eNB 5762 is now T-Mobile eNB 306271. Located at 40.582064139078206, -74.16175767702059 Weirdly both of the new Sprint conversions that have been found in Staten Island (eNB 306271 and eNB 326459) were sites I visited earlier this summer but neither of them were broadcasting the keep PLMN at the time. In fact, Sprint eNB 5762 was completely offline when I visited. I suspected both sites were keep sites based on their location relative to neighboring T-Mobile sites so I was surprised when I didn't spot 312-250 coming from them. Glad to see T-Mobile still kept them. Also T-Mobile isn't done with non-conversion new builds in the city. T-Mobile eNB 894075 is a brand new site added this summer on Rockefeller University's campus in Manhattan. It gives me hope for neighborhoods like Red Hook and Williamsburg that desperately need sites along the waterfront.
    • Nearly every site I encountered in the Bronx was running N41 SA. Consistent pings in the low teens and speeds were actually great. Sprint eNB 9294 got converted but isn't live yet. Location: 40.83091697219704, -73.8178106151994   Sprint eNB unknown, now T-Mobile eNB 310677 Location:40.880070855974395, -73.83644046611454   Sprint eNB Unknown, now T-Mobile eNB 894775. Bonus speed test with 2CA and N41 SA. Location: 40.8989406640668, -73.84564472722599   Sprint eNB Unknown, now T-Mobile eNB 894854. 40.86220687471859, -73.86242513896488
