T-Mobile LTE & Network Discussion V2

Recommended Posts

Hey, in my backwoods area, T-Mobile has twice the cell sites as Sprint. They use microwave backhaul here, as well as Verizon. All 4 carriers here have issues. I'm not even speaking of my market.

U can't comment on markets u yourself haven't visited.

Don't waste your keystrokes arguing with him -- he feeds on it.  Looking at his screenshot, it is possible that he was on WiFi, not even on LTE.

I understand that "this isn't English class," but, honestly, how hard is it to type the word "you"?

That was a such thing called a typo. And who is talking about grammar this isn't English class. You said T-Mobile speeds are slowing. I posted a speed test of a T-Mobile line getting faster speeds JUST on band 4 than I saw Sprint or AT&T on multiple bands.

And just because your backwoods area is doing bad it doesn't reflect the use of others either. So can you please stop spreading bs. You are sounding more and more like a fan boy every post.

So is yours. Point blank it's too early to tell if BingeOn is having a negative impact on the network.

Was that your speed test because someone posted that screenshot on Howardforums as well?

I knew I saw that test before on reddit. The person that posted that speed test was likely one of the only people on that sector. T-Mobile is increasing backhaul across the NYC market and they recently upgraded to 20x20 AWS but that speed test is not indicative of what speeds are like across the entire NYC market. Most areas are not that fast at all.

 

 

I can find areas in certain cities where I can pull 100Mbps+ speed tests too. Doesn't mean that the entire city is that way.

I may believe it's possible in already highly populous areas, but in my corner of suburbia the theory of BingeOn bringing the network to its knees (or just slowing it down) is absolute bunk. I took a phone with a T-Mo SIM out with me today and witnessed no less than 20 Mbps and peaked at 81 Mbps, with an average around 30-50 Mbps.

 

Even if "everyone" is suddenly watching crap all the time, the network can handle it here...

 

I'll have to test in the city when I go there next.

 

What ought to be more worrisome is everyone being upgraded to unlimited for three months. Word gets to the masses about that and look out.

T-Mobile can't get to 120 Mbps in Chicago. They only have spectrum for a 15x15 FDD LTE deployment active at this time.

That's right! Regardless of whether they add YouTube to the their CringeOn manifesto, we still have to start popping the popcorn for December 1st and their Unlimited Throttle Deprioritization nonsense!

 

Oh that's going to be good. Just wait until the end of next month. I bet we'll be picking a best horror story post of the day every day. 

 

Maybe we should start a new thread to try and be somewhat decent to this one.  :D

Xodium is one of the bigger pro-Tmo people on there. That is what is surprising to me.

 

On a side note, what is your issue with VZW? As much as I don't care for their business practices, they are still the gold standard for around STL and Southern IL, frankly for most of America from a network POV. While I wish Sprint worked in Chester, there are worse things than being stuck on VZ here.

You may want to take a look at punctuation rules again, friend.

      Ill make my comments brief, in hopes that it creates dialog abbot our future. The synergy and blending of the 2 company's from the network perspective is a complete disaster already! If you are a Sprint Network Employee and feel everything is so far, so good. You have not yet been tortured by the superior leader. Its coming. 
      T-mobile either has a leadership directive to force out Sprint employees, or the local markets and regions are overwhelmed by the extensive knowledge Sprint folks bring and that intimidation is causing them to try and force you out. To be fair, Sprint had layers of dead weight also and most need to be bounced. 
      From the brief time I have seen their processes and procedures combined with the lack of experience, rest assured you are all in for a wild ride.

      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.
