Sprint 3xCA ?


Recommended Posts

  • 2 months later...

Hi all,

 

Sorry to semi-resurrect a thread, but I figured it would be better than starting a new one. I'm curious about when we can expect to see higher speeds on band 41 uploads? I read that there was something involving CA or something similar for uploads as well that was in the pipeline, even if it's a long term thing. I'd appreciate any guidance,

 

Thanks!

It has been talking about. Just need devices that supports it. When the HTC A9 came out it was said that it supports it. It doesn't sound like they will inable it on that phone. Which makes no since.

It's not uncommon for chipset features to go unsupported in devices. Just because the modem or processor supports something doesn't mean the handset has the rest of the necessary hardware in place to implement the feature.

Like the Note 2 that supported CDMA BC10, but Sprint removed 1x800 from the PRL that the Note 2 received. To this day, I don't think Sprint has allowed 1x800 to the Note2, even though I remember them saying they were working on a fix via firmware update.

Correct. Though it worked fine for me if I sideloaded a regular PRL. I think it was a manufacturing issue on some.

I don't think you will see higher upload speeds, it's a ratio for download/upload with a finite spectrum resource.

Upload speeds on B41 are staying where they are at for the time being. Upload side carrier aggregation has been discussed and is in Sprint's roadmap, but there is no clear indication of how far out it is. I would suspect at least a year? Probably longer, but it's hard to say.

Iirc they could adjust the download upload ratio else the chips can add it along with another antenna transmit path, which would double it.

They could adjust the ratio, but if they do it will be to favor the download side, not the upload.

When the S8 comes out we will have to see if the Specs support it or not. That could tell us..

"In a packed arena during a National Basketball Association game, Sprint Corp. put its network claims to the test. The carrier said it was ahead of the ball — the first in the U.S. to reach blazing fast, near-gigabit speeds on licensed, commercial spectrum."

Means voice is roaming on vzw but data is on Sprint

I got that but, does that mean B41 is on a vzw tower? Weird seeing that in a metro area. It's also a Samsung Market where GCI are usually 09B.

    • 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.
    • Same with factory unlocked
