That was when I was with Verizon.  Im good with tmobile.  I was able to get Verizon to take back my phone at no charge due to marginal service at my home.

Definitely cellular equipment. Not Sprint's, though.

They're popping up like crazy in downtown Denver, maybe Verizon, they're attached on the Comcast cable strand

DN0410, assuming I'm reading that properly, makes me think AT&T.

Dramatic uptick in AT&T small cell permits has been noted in Columbus and Sacramento over the last few months, so Denver find is not surprising.

5g is still in the early phases of deployment and testing . I honestly don’t care about 5g one bit..

Strand mount small cells of the tmobile flavor. Supports LAA or LTE-U

Are they doing it to their network across the grid? Or only in certain locations?

You're lucky. Houston is getting monstrosities that look like this. They're popping up in the most random locations (in front of people's yards, businesses, schools). They're not even trying to be discreet by using better stealth set-ups.

A few people are mad that they're showing up in historic neighborhoods. In some cases, they're putting two of these right next to each other; one facing one side of the street and the other facing the opposite. Heck, I've even seen a T-Mobile small cell get co-located with an At&t small cell!

It's nice that T-Mobile is moving very quick in deploying these small cells. But at some point, they're going to piss off the wrong old lady that loves to show up to City council meetings 😂.

So was wondering if anyone can explain why sometimes when I'm on a call it says 4glte, most of the time it says 4g. What is the difference and is one way better than the other? I know hspa or wCDMA but what is better?

LTE > HSPA+ (4G) > HSPA (4G) > WCDMA/UMTS (3G/4G).

4G LTE is 4th generation long term evolution which is the next step up from 3-g. 3-g or 3rd generation services. HSPA is just a faster form of 3-g. T-Mobile uses 42 megabytes a second maximum dual carrier 3-g services. And HSPA is better. Wcdma is a slower but more widely deployed form of 3-g.

How does the current plans compare with the old and legacy plans? And this goes for 2 and 4 lines

 

I had tmobile maybe about 10-15 years ago but i didnt really pay attention to their plans since.

 

Is it worth $140 for 2 lines on the magenta plus? Dont really care about the extras such as hotspot, netflix, free stuff, etc.

But i do care about HD streaming quality and deprioritization

 

Im particularly asking people who have or had the older plans in tmobile. Or anyone who knows about the old plans

Yesterday, WRC and WMPT transitioned to their new channels, clearing some of 600 MHz in the DC area.

Today?  https://imgur.com/a/Pg7Bclb

4G LTE is a different technological standard then 3-g. And vo LTE is the technological standard for making phone calls on an LTE network. So when you have LTE service you make phone calls on LTE. So if you live in an area where TMobile works very well your voice over LTE experience should be pretty darn good. Now if you live in an area where TMobile service isn't great then you would experience a lot of dropped calls. It really depends on where you live and how T-Mobile's network is over there.

The main difference is the call itself... one is (4G LTE) is done in a typical wireless call fashion.... VoLTE is a voice-call over the data side of the network... The "experts" on this forum can pick this up and explain further.    Basically VoLTE allows a more efficient use of the network because the call is treated like a packet of data...

      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.
