T-Mobile LTE & Network Discussion V2

Anyone know where to find the port ratios for T-Mobile?  Legere said Sprint's went down to 2.07, which is a lot better than the previous quarter (2.45).  I'm curious about what Verizon/AT&T's port ratios are against T-Mobile.

T-Mobile is port-positive against all carriers. In Q3 2015: 2.1 to Sprint, 2.0 to AT&T and 1.3 to Verizon

 

The opposite ratios are easy to derive.

(0.77 T-Mobile to Verizon, 0.5 to T-Mobile to AT&T and 0.47 T-Mobile to Sprint).

The all new data strong network bloated with customers

Now John Legere can quickly scratch out whatever he had planned for Uncarrier 10, maybe even push back whatever that is for Uncarrier 11, because now for Uncarrier 10 is the new "Data Gone Wrong" Network, if he's truthful about it.

 

However, more likely it's be called the "Data Long Gone", Network "experiment", where T-Mobile takes customers back to experience the speeds of the early 90s. Not to worry though, John Legere likely will have someone fix it if you send an email or tweet to him.

 

If you tweet to him, you'll get to read all the responses Magentans will tweet in saying how great John Legere is for helping resolve a customer pain point, assuming he does respond.

Ha. I wish. I'd love to watch their network implode, but I doubt they'd do something that crazy. At least not with equally crazy fine print.

This would kill any reason to buy an unlimited data plan, in fact smart people would buy the cheapest data plan available if this truly meant fully exempted music and video streaming.

If anything, I could see at best, throttled video streaming to 1mbps, so users can still stream video after reaching their limit, but not to the point where it slows their network to a crawl.

 

That was my thought as well.

 

Let's see how the fanboys spin the * found in the T&Cs.

I agree as T-Mobile boasts its network speeds and this would slow it down immensely. This is similar to what Claure tried (for a few hours) and was flamed for.

Pssh.  Legere can do things Marcelo has done and it is good.  Meanwhile, anything Sprint does, even if they succeed T-Mobile's offerings, is bad.

It'll still slow it to a crawl, Music freedom requires 2-3Mbps for bursts up to 4 seconds.

 

A constant 1mbps stream x 3,000 people streaming, will cause some troubles lol

John Legere Halloween Tales of the Scarriers... :mad2: Only he would do this

 

http://www.tmonews.com/2015/10/john-legere-celebrates-halloween-with-tales-of-the-scarriers/

With John is its a love/dislike with me. After watching these videos I thought they were funny especially the one for Sprint and the cage fight with him and Marcelo. But still shocking john didn't dog out Sprint like he use to.

I've already posted my opinions about this here, and it seems some of you agree with me about the throttling. Yet, here is what I think is further going to happen, which I believe I mentioned a bit about before.

 

John Legere likely is going to institute a speed cap for this, that'll be on all plans for anything that uses video and I assume for audio as well. My guess is the speed cap will be around 8/9 mbps, just like the one of the prepaid plan groups that use it. More later...

      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.
