Clearwire and Qualcomm team up on Multi-Mode chipsets


Recommended Posts

Will it benefit Cricket as well with the LTE they are deploying and the use of Clearwire LTE for additional capacity?

 

If Cricket & Clearwire signed an LTE agreement, then yes it will help them.

These Multi-monde chipset will support GSM,UTMS,EV and LTE TD and FD on the same chip. So I will be able to use my sprint phone anywhere in the world and on any carrier?

No, but you would be able to CDMA eSMR, CDMA PCS, TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE, which would be kickass!

Can't believe I missed this release the other day...should make for a sweet phone in the next EVO as there will be no excuse to not support all bands then!.... :)

 

Nice to see Clear get some positive news their way too! Even if indirectly!

Now I can see that as being awesome. Now all we need is seamless handoffs between the frequencies :lol:

 

What I foresee is being able to use a Clear site with tons of capacity and backhaul when I'm out and about in NYC, and have it switch over to Sprint 1900/800 when I go inbuilding. I could finally watch Netflix while on the bus home, or stream high b/w Pandora!

    • New oddity since the Feb security patch and a carrier services upgrade, no matter if Wifi is turned on or off, I'm seeing a Wifi 4 connection to an unknown ssid.  Airplane mode, etc didn't get rid of it. Connecting to my home wifi (which turned into Wifi 5) then disconnecting resolved the issue. Not sure where/why the ghost was coming from
    • Digging permits for fiber/power pulled by T-Mobile. American Tower sites are just easy to look up since we can find where they are easy enough.
    • Where do you get new tower plans for American Tower? Do they show on the American Tower Site Locator map?    Also, here’s a map of permits across Northwest Ohio (Lucas County) if anyone’s interested 😁 https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/2/edit?mid=1-qgOcMVOnqW4b9-HhUDc7AGxbRLqn48&usp=sharing
    • That's a decent number of new sites. Nebraska is likely the oddest market in the country, as T-Mobile didn't exist here until a few years ago. Until last summer, their footprint didn't really extend much out of Omaha, Sprint had a much larger footprint. But I'd like to think that their aggressive expansion here is a signal that they intend to follow through on their rural expansion plans. Given the number of American Tower sites that we know they are targeting across NE, KS, MO, IA, AR and IL, it does seem that they have an expansion plan ready to go. Unfortunately we haven't done any digging for the OH area so I don't have any details there for you.
    • Here are the new sites in the Toledo area from the last few years. All of these are Sprint conversions, and they still have a few more Sprint sites to convert
