  1. Past hour
  2. Likely 16 port triband if it's a one for one replacement. Some seem to get octoport 800/1.9 + a 2.5 antenna of some kind (reuse mini Mac / 8t8r / M-mimo). Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  3. They would be owned by somebody else but would still be Sprint/T-Mobile MVNOs
  4. If they do where do they do? Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  5. Looks like Sprint went around and added Tri-band panels to all the old Clear wire only sites. Giving them 800/1900/2500 in which it covers some of the problem spots.
  6. They will probably get rid of Boost and Virgin Mobile.
  7. Today
  8. Someone claims they will give up all prepaid not sure I believe that as that makes no since Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
  9. Did I read somewhere; that Tmo was willing to sell Metro?!? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. So we appear to have reached the horse trading stage. 2 things come to mind, first that T&S are basically going to give up whatever the government wants to make this merger happen. Secondly if we're at this stage approval is probably happening, unless the FCC requests something onerous. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  11. Interestingly enough, i can only seem to find B26 up here in Williston, I have not found any 25 or 41, no matter where in town I go. I have a suspicion what tower it's on, but not for sure. Sent from my SM-N960U1 using Tapatalk
  12. The way this is worded implies support for on;y two Gs at a time, ie 3g & 4g or 4g & 5g.
  13. The CDMA module for the magic box is supposed to be deployed soon. It plugs into the Ethernet port on the magic box and broadcasts 1x (and maybe evdo?). So that's an option for them. Or they could get the Airave 4 which just launched. I think the CDMA parts are identical. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  14. So after some thinking, I decided to pre-order the LG V50 5G from Sprint. I hate leasing phones and I wasn't planning on getting it but at $14/month, why not? Let's just hope that 5G gets enabled in my market in the next 18 months. I had to use a VPN to order it since I'm not in one of the launch markets.
  15. Yesterday
  16. These M-MIMO are going to be a huge hit to the backhaul limits. Are there any plans to use a network cache at the sites that get the most used traffic instead of rising the backhaul limits? I know you can make a steam cache on your home LAN. So you only reach out to steam once for the game the first time then everyone else gets redirected to the cache after it is downloaded. I think Netflix has something similar where they deploy something to the ISP a "Netflix Open Connect". Netflix Open Connect looks like it is a 2U NAS with everything Netflix on it. It won't help video chatting but it should be able to take the two data hogs(Netflix and youtube) off the back haul.
  17. If Sprint can just prove to CNET and others that you don't need to be within line of site of a cell site to get decent speeds, they'll already be ahead of the pack even if they can't provide gigabit peaks like VZW. For these Verizon tests the press were encouraged to stand a certain distance away from the site and to face the antenna, etc. Sprint should just give the device to them and tell them they can roam free.
  18. I doubt it but they’ll be certainly making a video after they purchase a device. Sprint already made claims that their 5G coverage is going to broader in cities than that of Verizon so that within itself will draw attention from CNET. I really really hope this goes good for Sprint. I think it’ll bring much needed good press about their 5G network. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. In my opinion, this isn't a bad compromise. Shoot for higher arpu customers and limit it to markets that actually have 5G deployed. Just seems sensible considering Sprint's position and that it isn't free to deploy.
  20. Yup, so on the network side it will be a successful launch.. but that’s about it .. most of the us won’t get to try it .. hopefully sprint does what Verizon did and send some of the CNET’s and some blogs out to test the networks. If not it will be a very quiet and unnoticed launch imo.. other than of course what sprint announces and that’s about it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Requiring that people upgrade to Unlimited Premium certainly won’t help with the uptake numbers for 5G or the devices. They should reconsider this. Also, the device isn’t available outside of the four initial launch cities right now. They’re using a location filter of some kind on the Sprint website.
  22. I will ask.... to see if the team will send me a screen shot Opps was not supposed to share that link my bad Also, the team is not confident that many of sprints customers are going switch to the LG v50 or any of the 5G devices coming right of the back.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
