T-Mobile LTE & Network Discussion V2

Recommended Posts

They are constantly adding 600 MHz, though primarily in rural areas right now.  In most of the urban areas, it is dependent on the repack; Los Angeles/San Diego, Denver, Miami, Kansas City, and Houston should be cleared out within the next few weeks, even though T-Mobile has managed to squeeze some 5x5 deployments into some of those areas.

Well 600 MHz deployment is happening quickly...for now it's just testing...

B66 using the new AWS3 will need to be in CA. There are only 4 AWS3 blocks. Where they do own AWS3, it is mostly just 5x5 worth.
They are doing 3 carrier aggregation here...

Hey DanLodish345. I had the same thing come up the other day on my embedded router.
Check out those earfcns'  You are seeing some sweet MFBI fren. 66736 is the band mask translation for 2140MHz,  2250 refers to the same block, 2140MHz just when detected as Band 4 by your handset, that indicates blocks D(5MHz) + E(5MHz) for 10MHz FDD. It just kicked on here, hopefully AWS-3 capacity is coming.

The best part, I was roaming on Sprint  Top is L66, bottom is band(s) L4+5+2 aggregated. It was the first I had seen of it as well. See how the math is exactly the same as yours?

We scored band 2 installations EOY 17,  5MHz is LTE on rural sites, city builds at 10MHz started appearing last summer so the rest should turn over soon, our whole market was modernized over the last year. Those speeds are really fast! Have a great day.

 
Where did you get that router from?

What?! I've never seen Sprint uploads over 20Mbps. 

Try 15 MHz of uplink on L1900 in Seattle with 64QAM.

My bad.  It should have read:

I have heard from sources of mixed reliability that T-Mobile will be adding a lot 600Mhz sites in Cleveland over the coming weeks  They currently have one site near the lake on the east side.

Here is one at prime use time on Sunday evening. I don't want to hijack this thread with Sprint anymore than i already have so I'd be happy to carry on this conversation in the appropriate Sprint thread. Screenshot_20190324-185541_Speedtest.jpeg

Oh man this dual low band goodness is amazing. 20MHz FDD below 1GHz between l850 and l600.

Are you on aggregated L600 here? I don't see how this applies in your response.

It's not contiguous 20x20 600MHz?

      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.

      Am I the only one that likes to look at Verizon's coverage comparison tool. I think it gives a good idea of a carrier's generalized coverage as far as those cities that have been announced. However, it takes a while for it to get updated. I look at Verizon's map and think, no one will ever build an LTE network of that size. When I look at T-Mobile, I see a spotty, spread out network. AT&T is also spotty with a few highways covered here and there. Sprint seems to be more put together as in even if it is spotty, they are in blobs rather than random remote areas.
       
      I've also found a few places that Sprint has coverage in but not Verizon such as in southern Texas.
