Just listened to Dr John Saw’s interview at CES


Recommended Posts

I have to admit, it’s somewhat encouraging network wise for 2018. I’m not overly excited becuase we all know Sprints execution is laughable but if they can expand the network plus continue to densify and add all the bands on all the existing and new towers then they should be back in business. They should have done this back in 2014 but at least it’s getting done. My question is how much expansion are they doing. He mentioned neighborhood expansion just outside coverage areas as well as location destination spots that typically sprint doesn’t provide service to that would get new coverage. My guess is it would be decent expansion when it’s all said and done but nothing overly dramatic. Also, I would love B26 and small cells to takeover SoCal all 2018 but I know I’m dreaming.

Blame the Mexican “FCC” and lack of vision for SCal

You can't play the blame game on this one. The SMR band was never intended for wideband usage. Roadblocks were to be expected.

Same can be said for many new bands. As long as there still is movement on some portions of the border I advise patience, as difficult as it may be. I do wish Sprint would be more forthcoming, but action is best.

Hopefully they’re planning thousands of sites for new coverage. They also need to keep rolling out small cells, and should be calling businesses EVERYWHERE to send a Magic Box.

It’s do or die time for Sprint, and they need to keep both the momentum and money flowing in the right direction.

    • Mike, are you still recommending that this beta only be used on on dual psim/esim devices or should it now be basically safe for all devices (with usual beta risks)?
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta is rolling out right now with LOTS of bug fixes.. and some new features. The full changelog is in the app or on the website. In addition to many bugfixes, there are some notable new options: Colorize location display to indicate low accuracy (yellow when Trail Logger is enabled) or outdated timestamp (red). This is enabled by default. Enable/disable display of location coordinates with location accuracy and the location timestamp.. so now each value can be individually enabled/disabled. Configure the maximum age of location data before Location Service is restarted; the default remains at 10 minutes but can now be configured as desired. Limit max number of neighbor cells to display (including 0, if you only want to see the summary line). Some users are seeing LTE or NR data persist after a connection is lost. I made some minor changes, but I wanted to get this release rolled out before continuing to dig deeper into that issue since I made so many other changes that may or may not impact this bug. One thing that users can try is to disable the option under Preferences > Display Settings > Show Hidden Data -- that may resolve the issue. Looking forward to feedback! Thanks..
    • Yup. It keeps GPS info up to date while logging. 
    • Looks like GPS Status and Toolbox
    • https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl T-Mobile DAS upgrades and AT&T under the seats antennas are interesting. Hopefully someone gets pictures and details of the under the seats antennas.
