it will depend on the merger results from a customer perspective.

That's true very true. Everyone's opinion will obviously be different. But I'll take your word for it as well.

I'm definitely going to miss Sprint.  It's like a homely introverted ex-girlfriend.  She's a cheap date and just likes to stay home (on WiFi).  You know there was so much potential, if she could just be what you wanted her to be.  Get moving, get out of the house, get a makeover.  You weren't in love with her, and made so many excuses for her to all your friends.  You've been meaning to break up with her, but you didn't want to end up with one of those 3 other narcissistic chicks out there, who really didn't look much better with their makeup off.  Eventually she just finds someone else (T-Mobile).  :devilangel:

I'll miss Sprint. I've had them since 1999. Maybe I was simply lucky, but I just didn't have the problems with them that other people reported throughout the years so I never had a reason to switch.

One thing I will miss about Sprint is them waiting until midnight to bring up new sites etc.  T-Mobile completely brought down its sites several times in Columbus last night for B71, between 6:30 and 7pm (prime time).  Not impressed.  Sprint typically would wait until midnight, a far less busy time.  Personally think they should give warnings like "We plan on bringing up more low band capacity tomorrow evening.  Service interruptions are possible."

How long was it down for?   All day?     Sprint is weak in my area.   Not enough towers.     I certainly wouldn't mind the interruption if it meant better service for me.     Sprint for years did very little in my area.   T-mobile is making waves of improvements.   Really great to hear and see.    I'm one of those who will not miss Sprint.    over 20 years of it.    Welcome to T-Mobile.

Same here but I've had them since 1998 - one year longer than even you.  I was a senior in high school that year in Lexington, KY. Since then I've lived in both several portions of metro Cincinnati and also here in Atlanta.  Even in the late 90s, I had no signal issues with Sprint even in Lexington.  Anywhere I went  - and I went to a lot of places during my college years (while at University of Kentucky)all over the United States - I tended to have service.  When I didn't have it through Sprint I was roaming on Verizon for little or no cost.  So it didn't matter to me as long as the damned thing worked.  And it did....at least until the latter end of the 3G era during the much maligned rip and replace.  By then I was deep into my stint here in Atlanta and after that really terrible period.....the service became stellar here.  I mean awesome, even, at least at times.  LTE here in Atlanta was absolutely fantastic. Low latency, high DL speeds.....tolerable upload speeds.  That was a deliberate configuration as we all know but it certainly worked for most people.  

 

But change is inevitable and here we are.  It's an ever evolving story!

Hello from a former Lexingtonian (TCHS '99 here)!

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
