Sprint mvno's and roaming plus access


Recommended Posts

I noticed Sprint has the Roaming + feature on the map now with extensive coverage in Mississippi up through appalachia and Kansas and Oklahoma. My question is will this service work with Freedompop or Ringplus or Boost Mobile accounts? I don't live close enough to these areas to check but I would like to know.

I actually just looked at boost's coverage map and it just shows standard sprint coverage throughout the country. On Freedompop's however it shows 3g coverage not only in the Roaming + areas but extensively where US Cellular roaming would be. I can check with a Freedompop device. If this is the case it puts a whole different paint job on things.

republic wireless is indicating the same roaming as now having 3g access. Can anyone verify?


As far as I know, Republic Wireless has the same roaming coverage as Sprint postpaid.  But Republic bills roaming data usage at 18.3 MB for every 1 MB.  So, within reason, Republic does not care how much or what type of data roaming usage -- because the end user is going to pay for that usage.

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
