Claure or Legere?

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!

But Marcelo lost in the 1st round

The TMO minions came out in force... to be honest, I think his numbers went crazy too quick for those to be from unique IPs. And he's trumping  Larry Page by leaps and bounds already. I can't stand Legere. You should vote for Larry. Vote early, vote often!

Legere is nothing but LOUD... Quite frankly I am now tired of his act.... I fell for it and jumped ship to them back last Jan...  For all his blah blah blah... quite frankly their network is worse off then Sprints.... I get it depends on where etc etc....

Just went on a trip/cruise.... Long beach area...SUCKED...  Catalina SUCKED.. I mean it was sooo bad I could barely get tweets out to vent my frustration....   The map "claimed this and that"  but really should be as light of pink as possible...

 

Its nice and dandy they get the custys... but it is sooooo full, the capacity cant sustain it anymore.. and soon, they will go backwards

The thing is Legere is polarizing and it is working. Say what you want about him but there is no denying that its working. Of course Legere cant take all the credit. He has a wonderful management team in Mike Sievert and Neville Ray that execute and carry out his plans. Still the boldness and the way he has changed the US wireless industry is amazing. He has turned the Tmobile brand to be "cool" and has in many cases kept the network on par with the big 2.

I use to like Claure, but not so much nowadays with the lack of network spending. Although to be fair, I can't entirely blame him for that, as much of the reason is on Softbank. I blame Masa more than anything, as Sprint could be thriving by now, if only he'd at least spend on deployment while waiting on the merger attempt before deciding on densification.

 

Legere I still don't like, regardless of my being happy with T-Mobile, as the Executive Response people are great for everything, other than placing device pre-orders. The last few times I left T-Mobile were solely due to screwups pre-ordering smartphones through Executive Response, and I've learned its better to go with an unlocked device anyways.

      Hello everyone!
       
      It is the belief of myself and of the staff that it is time to reopen a new T-mobile LTE and Network discussion thread due to the implementation of "network prioritization" that tmobile is doing to its subscribers. 
       
      As Sprint has similar language in its TOS, we believe that it is worthy of being discussed here as Sprint may do something similar on a site by site basis.
       
      This thread will be strictly for discussing T-mobiles LTE network and technologies and not about personalities, their followers, and etc etc which may be better suited for S4GRUs sister site for T-mobile T4GRU. 
       
      As a result this thread will be heavily moderated to stay on topic but I view the S4GRU member base very favorably and trust that we won't have much problems here.

      Staff/Topic Chat Poll!

       

      Please fill out this poll to express your interest in holding a scheduled topic chat. I have been kicking around the idea with the staff of having a Staff QnA, Topic Chats, etc. We are looking for time frames that would be best suited for everyone so please put your votes in!

       

      Thanks all!!

    • As Dkoellerwx said, everything gets swapped out, including ground equipment. They are also adding generators to a bunch of Sprint Keep sites in Northern Utah. My understanding is that most Sprint keep sites will get three new T-Mobile panels per sector for the entire spectrum portfolio - 600, 700, 1900, 2100, 2500. 
    • At least a few sites in STL are now at 100 MHz.
    • 100 MHz n41 is live in Austin and...Bentonville, Arkansas. Guessing this went live on Tuesday or Wednesday in Austin; network was acting a bit wonky on Tuesday. Noticed it yesterday, as I'm still a little too far away at home to catch n41. Peak speed in Bentonville 1/3 mi from the site was 675-700 Mbps down, 80-90 Mbps up, with the upload speed only possible with a 20 MHz B66 anchor...which seems congested at times. They also have 5 MHz B2 here as an anchor, which predictably leads to slow uploads. n71 is 15x15 here. Sprint B25 is two 5x5 channels. Weirdly, seems like I'm being routed through Nashville, so latency is rather high, and tethering performance is somehow quite poor...maybe it's due to congestion on the PCC meaning that the difference between on-phone and tethered priority is the difference between a usable connection and...not. Also, VZW (with the old Alltel SID for CDMA) is what you end up using inside the Crystal Bridges museum, though the area has WiFi so not the end of the world.
    • The Sprint site at 520/202 was decommissioned a few weeks ago. Everything was pulled off the pole. 
    • It looks like N5 supports 5, 10, 15, and 20 MHz channel widths. I wonder how long they'll wait before they make a change to be able to use more of that spectrum for N5. Possible options I see: Use 15x15 as B26/N5 using DSS (If thats an option, or would it have to match and be N26?) 5x5 as B5 LTE for older phones and that still leaves 5x5 for HSPA.  A more aggressive option would be to use 20x20 for N5 exclusively and 5x5 for HSPA. This still leaves 10x10 B12 and 10x10 B14 for older phones for low band. Hopefully they enable SA if they go this route. Since I believe you can't aggregate low band LTE with low band NR in most cases, phones using the N5 carrier would not be touching the B12 and B14 carriers. If they enable SA on the 20x20 N5 carrier it would also help free up their limited midband spectrum for older non-NR phones. That would also prevent falling back to LTE only inside a building just because the mid-band anchor band was too weak. In Daytona AT&T was broadcasting 5x5 B2, 10x10 B66, and 10x10 B30 and that was it for midband.
