I just Centurylink and, anyone that drags their feet like on sprint current towers will not be a part of these new sites. I also hope sprint will be able to lease 600mhz in the future when that time comes for when that could be deployed. att will spend 10 billion dollars for that FYI.

Anybody remember when orignal nv was thought be donevby sprint . End 2013 if i remember right.

 

No, end of 2015. They are still on track. It could also mean early-mid 2016 as many have argued in the past, as that's when the deployment physically started.

Completion of Network Vision across the Sprint network is expected to take from three to five years.

The substantial completion has happened a while ago. There might be a few stragglers left in the system but at this point it is an immaterial number of sites.

Immaterial is very important to a lot of subscribers and they are losing a lot of customers due to not having them upgraded. I think they should make these last towers a priority. If they can't reach the landowner then choose another tower. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

Sprint has stopped hemorrhaging customers at this point. Almost all that were on the fence have left already. Those straggler sites are obviously still a priority but they aren't going to wait around when they can get more more work done in the meantime. Additionally a lot of these sites are being held up by the very municipality that they are in so choosing another tower is simply not an option.

    • Just got back from Puerto Rico. I spent a lot of time going around the San Juan metro area, predominantly in Viejo San Juan, Santurce, Isla Verde, and a short stop in University Gardens.  T-Mobile's network still performs as well today as it did when I last tested and in my opinion is the best on the island. n41 is still at 100MHz in most areas though I did record a few areas with only 80MHz. Yesterday the FCC announced that they're finally granting T-Mobile their Auction 108 winnings so we'll probably finally see that increase. They also have 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz n71. The fastest speed I recorded while there was 922 down and 120 up, presumably aggregating n41+n25 and potentially n71 as well but I wasn't able to confirm that. A couple of things I noticed about their network are that their is a ton of split-sector n25 deployed in San Juan, much like in the U.S. I even noticed some n41 sites that had 4 or more sectors. The weirdest being the site on top of SJU Airport where they have 6 n41 sectors each broadcasting 80MHz of n41. AT&T SIMs roam on LIberty's network but they still treat it as the home network. In my opinion they're the second best network in Puerto Rico. Liberty is still using the AT&T MCC-MNC code and is pretty much coasting on AT&T's network upgrades. They have 10MHz n5 virtually everywhere but I never saw my phone connect to any other 5G bands. Their saving grace was just how much spectrum they have to aggregate across midband and lowband. I'd see combos like 10MHz n5 + 20MHz B2 + 10MHz B66 + 10MHz Band 30 + 5MHz Band 2 and get upwards of 200Mbps. Coverage was slightly worse than T-Mobile in my experience, even indoors which is a surprise given T-Mobile usually struggles a bit indoors due to their macro density. Verizon is roaming on Claro in Puerto Rico just as they have been for years. No idea if there is 5G roaming because I was connected to LTE the entire time. Toggling 5G didn't do anything and both pings and speeds weren't great. Speeds were in the 20-40Mbps range consistently and pings over 200ms. For comparison T-Mobile's pings are in the teens and Liberty pings are in the 40's even when roaming using an AT&T SIM. Claro's network is ok in my experience with nothing really notable about it.  — — — — — Here are some pics of sites that I took:
    • WTB instructed to process all 2.5GHz licenses across the USA. They are only giving up some spectrum in certain markets of Hawaii.
    • Is this just for licenses in Hawaii?
    • Yeah, it basically directs the bureau to proceed with granting the applications in the normal course.  It's no longer being held by the AT&T objection. - Trip
    • I checked some counties for T-Mobile auction 108 licenses and the licenses have not been granted yet.  I expect it will take a few days or longer.
