Did they announce anything on the 800 mhz

Not that I heard.

 

The latest on that would be in Sprint’s Status Report on 800 MHz Band Reconfiguration (May 2, 2016): http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/comment/view?id=60001698703

So, does this mean that 800 mhz license is cleared

In those areas, yes.  But only in those areas.

 

The areas in red and light green on the map on page 2 of that document still are in limbo apparently.

Haven't had a chance to review the powerpoints or read all of the above posts...

 

Any mention about NGN deployment? Anything else exciting that was uncovered during the Q&A?

 

 

Basically the answer is no and will continue to be no since Sprint doesn't want to make promises that could potentially be detrimental is they don't follow through. It's the mistake Sprint made under Hesse and I'm willing to bet Marcelo won't be making them again.

So the 3rd carrier is showing as it's 2xca + another 20mhz carrier card for a total of 3 carriers on a site? Not showing as 3xca because the the tower needs a software update?

 

Is the 3rd carrier card active as a single 20mhz? If so does that really help? Who gets the one carrier card and who gets the 2xca if phones are equal? Is this another form of network management? Will that affect testing if say root metrics gets the 1 20 MHz vs the 2xca?

Didn't Sprint change their financial calendar so 1Q actually means Sept to Dec 2016? or am I mistaken

Sprint fiscal first quarter is april to june.

I don't believe this at all. Even there coverage map is nowhere near 70% coverage. When Sprint LTE was 70% finished it was easy find it. 2500 at 70% is still non existent for miles. Granted my home site just recieved nokia equipment this week but its still much harder to find a tower with b41 on it.

 

That's in your local area.

 

In the NYC market for example, 2.5Ghz is nearing 90% if not more.

Local as in most of north florida. Thats some huge patches of b41 missing to be at 70%. I just don't believe it and you need to see proof.

How does that help and who gets the one carrier and who gets the 2xca if phones are equal?

Folks with non CA devices get access to that third carrier, effectively off-loading work from the other 2 carriers, in essence bringing up average speeds overall for all users with triband devices.

I don't think it's 70% of their footprint but 70% of total POP's covered which would mean 210 Million people are covered by Band 41. That doesn't seem too wrong to me.

Yeah that's a pretty small area when you consider the rest of the country. Also, I actually can see proof ;)

 Definitely different experience in different markets, here in NYC and NJ I agree with Deval, im on B41 about 95% of time in NYC and bout 85% in NJ.

He's an employee so I'm guessing that he has access to glance or some other internal tools that allow him to see the proof, but can't share details publicly.

I agree with your interpretation.

 

From the Quarterly Investor Update:

 

"Total LTE coverage now reaches nearly 300 million people, including approximately 70 percent being covered by the 2.5 GHz spectrum deployment."

It doesn't specify whether they mean area or of POP's but it's safer to assume they mean POP's as opposed to area.

I agree.

95% just outdoor only or both indoor and outdoor?

I'd say for me it's 90%+ outdoors and 70%+ indoors. My neighborhood has horrible site spacing yet I manage to get Band 41 indoors.

    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.   
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
