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.

    • Checked and downloading a 1.6 MB Google Play System update.    Still reflects June 1 after.

    • The options to ignore GCI/NCI/PLMN/TAC are buggy.. working on resolving it. NSA cells are probably not being logged for most users yet.
    • Boost Mobile – the Newest Wireless Carrier – Launches New State-of-the-Art Nationwide 5G Network, Plans and Branding https://about.dish.com/2024-07-17-Boost-Mobile-the-Newest-Wireless-Carrier-Launches-New-State-of-the-Art-Nationwide-5G-Network,-Plans-and-Branding I'm really digging the relaunch of the brand. The new app is a lot better than before in that it actually feels like they're going a more premium route. The BoostOne app tried to gamify wireless service by making you want videos or download games in order to get discounts on your bill. Now it's decluttered and basically only account management. It's perfect. I was on a promotional $25/month unlimited plan on Boost Mobile and I just switched to the new $25 forever plan which is pretty much the same as before, the only exception being that now I'm price locked. The only thing I wish they'd do is start using QCIs instead of throttling once you use up your allotment of "premium data". I understand that they don't have as much capacity as the big 3 and that they're super reliant on AT&T and T-Mobile outside of major metros but hitting 30GB and being throttled to 512kbps is not competitive. They then try to charge $30 for an extra 10GB of high speed data. The big 3 and their prepaid brands have basically given up on hard throttling and use prioritization instead. They should consider doing the same. The next step for them is getting their name on Apple's websites this fall when the new iPhones drop. That's some of the best advertising a carrier can have. Instantly millions of people will learn that Boost Mobile is an actual carrier if they can pull that off.
    • Use cloud features or backup files first before updating with this firmware.  I updated my S24 Ultra with this update.  T-Mobile and Verizon network esims worked fine.  Dish Rainbow sim appeared to work fine.  Right after that, when I rebooted to another non-public test esim which previously worked fine, I got the Samsung Welcome screen.
