There is only a few phones that support it. The one I have is the lgv30.

Yeah, so far no stand alone radios have it either. I don't have one I can build into a modem.

Yeah I'm wondering when those will come out. I'm waiting for T-Mobile to start testing here.

Next year. The em7565 I just picked up supports all the current bands and has 5GHz LTE, Cat-12. I am gonna wait for new radio 600MHz before I go dump 200 more bucks on a chip.

The timeline everyone is saying seems like new radio 600MHz will be in a flagship by end of year and L600 should have aggregation and be available in mid range phones then as well. 
Four carrier aggregation. I believe the new S9 has four carrier aggregation.

Considering the excellent Sprint reports here in Chicago, I'd really like to switch to Sprint, but the phone selection still is looking quite limited this year until VoLTE comes around with DMA going away, allowing customers to purchase any unlocked phone and switching to whichever carrier they choose. I'm set on getting the flagship Sony phone this year, so its looking like I'll either have to stay with T-Mobile, or else go back to AT&T. Anyways, S4GRU is helpful with the Sprint updates regarding the network, and if anything changes allowing me to use an unlocked phone on Sprint, I'll switch.


Isn’t Sprint faster in Chicago? I have friends up there and they seem to be saying Sprint has been faster there for a while.

Doesn't T-Mobile have less Spectrum in Chicago than they do elsewhere?

12 MHz 700
30 MHz PCS
30 MHz AWS
30 MHz B71
0 MHz B66

There are larger markets with less spectrum like St. Louis for example.

Do they have any band 46 in central New Jersey?

Its LAA, saw a post on Reddit. Its pushing over 300Mbps.  Not sure if LAA is nationwide or New Jersey.

it uses carrier aggregation of both the 5GHZ band, yep the same band that WiFi uses and a licensed LTE band. The licensed part is used for control signals. The 5GHz band is shared with WiFi users and other carriers that decide to implement LAA. If nobody else is using it it is capable of vast amounts of bandwidth. If everybody else is using as well the available bandwidth goes down precipitously!

It's not being deployed Nationwide?

I thought tmobile came out and said that their 5G for now will be hotspot areas in cities.

I'm talking about LAA... I don't see that as a 5th generation upgrade.

In order to deploy nationwide it would require vast numbers of small cells. I predict that it will redeployed at least initially in stadiums, malls, large buildings, box stores, etc. T-Mobile will have to share the spectrum with other carriers and cable cos that have an advantage in that they can use strand mounted small cells.

But phone carriers will not get priority?

I thought they said they were using their 600, mmwave and LAA for their 5G buildout? But because of what they have it will be hotspots around the city (high traffic locations) I could have misheard them.

They are only using part of the 600 megahertz they have for 5G.. T-Mobile only has 10 megahertz I'll 600 megahertz for my area. LAA may be rolled out here sooner. I'm not totally sure.

If they do roll it out soon that’ll be interesting.

I don't know to be exact when they will roll it out. If they do it sooner that would be better.

      Fierce has a poll posted... and is utilizing a bracket style contest to find out who their readers think is the most powerful person in the telecom industry. Between Marcelo and the pink clad Chihuahua of a man... I give it to Marcelo. I think the final winner should be Masa, it's is a name people know and will get to know more in the coming years worldwide. But for the current poll, it's an easy decision for me!

      T-mobile Ericsson Cell Equipment
       
      For Ericsson markets t-mobile uses what is known as AIR antenna units which have the radio unit integrated with the antenna. This type of setup significantly reduces signal loss from the radio to the antenna since they're both practically next to each other and not sepearated by coax jumper cables like that of a remote radio unit.
       
      Basic Ericsson AIR21 setup
      (Note typically there are 2 Ericsson AIR per sector)

       

       

       
      Ericsson AIR21 + Band 12 700 mhz Equipment
       
      Note the addition of a new low band 700 mhz capable antenna + Ericsson RRUS11 B12 (remote radio units) in addition to new TMA (tower mounted amplifiers) connected to the AIR antenna. The new Ericsson RRUS11 B12 + Antenna addition is for tmobiles band 12 700mhz (L700) deployment.

      With the introduction of the new plans Sprint has announced. I told one of my friends about the $60 unlimited plan and she was shocked yet happy about it. She currently has T-Mobile and there has been times where my Sprint service has out performed her service even in the city with puling up information and out of town...well... you already know how that went. She was talking about switching and stuff but then she sent me a typical article bashing Sprint and I got irritated by it and I had to explain to her that Sprint is not bad at all. These articles are based on past experiences from 3+ years ago. I told her I'm pulling 60+ mbps on LTE but she's worried about Sprint being slow ( because of what she read). Guys give me some advice on persuading her to give Sprint a chance. 
       
      I feel like articles that are being posted is what keeps away customers.  It makes no sense that T-Mobiles 2g network is not spoken about when they are in the news for changes to plans and such. But good ol Sprint makes changes and articles that get posted rips Sprint apart for filth.

      Roger Cheng @cnet appears to have had the most fun out of this, it kind of wrote the story for him I guess, so there is that. Also, just noticed the extra title Q, that is gonna drive some people nuts today. Top lel.
