Cool.  If I am reading correctly: Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix and Washington DC will start getting 5G shortly after the next month in June?

As interesting as this is and even though I live in Atlanta, I can't say that I really care. 4G still has room to grow and is a pretty awesome technology. I couldn't care less about 5G in my city anytime soon. I'll wait til it matures I suppose as early adopting usually (always?) backfires, sometimes tremendously. 

That said, good for Sprint. They could use some positive street cred.

Yeah, I hope they spend their money tri-banding all their sites and thickening their coverage so they can deploy VOLTE.

Exactly. Their network is not ready in most places. They know this. Hence the extremely limited rollout. That's fine..just fix it with band 26 densification and cut off thresholds.

When the value factor is an order of magnitude than you make a fantastic point. 80 bucks is over a year of 5 buck bills. You will still get 5g eventually, and as that or before it happens you should be able to count on better coverage. Consistent speed is only as consistent as the network can reach from cell to cell with wide channels. Coverage is terrible without capacity, believe me. 

Flip that coin and 5 dollars seems to be an entry level price point for service. I would love to see more available bucket in terms of coverage, speed and consumption for 5 dollars, and unlimited to cost less. Depends on how efficient 5g is and what price level the market can bear I suppose fren.

So, what exactly is 5G New Radio. I saw a YouTube video that Nokia demonstrated  3CA + 64T64R. Is that what's in the NR? Seems like just one step up from current 3CA + 8T8R

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      I was taking a look at the HTC 5G Hub that's supposed to be launching on Sprint sometime this month. It looks like it could technically be Sprint's first foray into the WISP space. On HTC's site they mention it as a sort of replacement for your WiFi router with the ability to connect up to 20 devices to it. I wonder what data caps will be on this when it launches and what they plan on charging people for using it?
      It seems to be a lot of things smashed into one device. It's combining a wireless router, a streaming box, and a cloud gaming device all into one. It also has support for pretty much every U.S. LTE band.

      I figured since Verizon's 5G-NR network officially launched it would make sense for there to be a thread for it.

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      Sprint announced the MVNO Google Fi will use its network for 5G in a press release (that is, once there are actually 5G capable phones compatible with Google Fi someday):
      https://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-to-provide-5g-wireless-services-for-google-fi.htm
       
      This is the first I've heard about Fi and 5G so far. Google has pretty much kept mum on the topic, so I'm somewhat encouraged.
