    Looks like sprint is continuing the upgrade train here on st thomas. Yesterday I made my first volte call on the island. Didn't last long though.

    Nice speeds but we all know it’s the upload that’s killing them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yeah until the upload issues are resolved, no matter how great the download speeds, Sprint is unlikely to win any RootScore awards.

    I'm not pulling data in a traditional way, as Apple has locked all that info down. Rather I'm playing with some image processing that can interpret and log data that appears on the field test screen. Thought it would be something interesting to fiddle around with.

    They don't have to necessarily be strong but letting data speeds plummet like that is not acceptable.

    Low priority markets/lack of spectrum/low density. Sprint needs to pick and choose their battles. They will never be strong in every market (same for all carriers)

    There is a community database with a couple markets. If you shared your market data (Site note with GCI) I could add it. It would give me a reason to update the database. Which is amazing that it has been 8 months since last update. I don't care if you use any of the data and I don't think any of the other market mangers would care. But if shared the data is premier data and the same rules apply with how the data is shared.

    "Upload is used more than downloads" is not justification for hundreds of megabits of excess downlink capacity and 1-2 megabits of excess uplink capacity. This is spot on.

    I can tell you from experience, 5G uploads are exponentially more stable than 3xCA LTE. Where I see 1-3mb on B41 ill see 10-30mbs on 5G coming from the same site.

    ---------- Forwarded message --------- From: <fusiontables-noreply@google.com> Date: Wed, Sep 11, 2019, 2:36 AM Subject: Download your Google Fusion Tables data and migrate your maps Last year, we announced plans to shut down Google Fusion Tables, an experimental project to help visualize large datasets, especially on a map. With three months to go until shutdown on December 3, 2019, we wanted to share progress on new tools to make it easier for you to download your data and migrate your maps. Download your data with Google Takeout If you created many tables over the years, we’ve made it easy to download all your data in one step with a new dedicated Fusion Tables option in Google Takeout. You can save the rows, metadata and geometries of any base tables that you own, and export this data in the following formats: JSON, CSV and KML. Migrate your maps with a new open source tool We’ve seen a lot of great maps created with Fusion Tables, including data journalism projects that shouldn’t have to disappear along with Fusion Tables. That’s why we've partnered with Ubilabs to create a new open source tool built to preserve maps generated with Fusion Tables. To get started, go to the Fusion Tables Archive Tool and select the tables you want to export. You will need to give the tool access to your Google Drive and Fusion Tables so that it can read your tables and write archives. Here’s how it works: The data for each table is saved to its own “archive”. The data will be saved in a Google Sheet; for datasets beyond the size limits of Sheets, you'll get a CSV. This archive is stored in a top level folder called “ft-archive” in your Drive. A Google Maps visualization is automatically created with the archived data. This map preserves many of the original Fusion Tables styling configurations. Any changes you make to the Sheet or CSV will appear in the map visualization. A listing of all archived tables is stored in a Sheet. This handy Sheet is called "ft-archive-index" and lives within the “ft-archive” folder. The index Sheet summarizes each run of the archive tool and preserves the visualization URLs with encoded styles. Each time you run the archive tool, you will get additional archives based on the current data in your tables along with corresponding new rows in the archive directory. You can preview a map visualization in the archive tool, and when you’re ready to share, generate a code snippet to embed your map. If you want to embed the map on your site, you must get an API key. If you're a journalist or nonprofit, you may be eligible for free or reduced cost usage. Finally, certain features of Fusion Tables, notably geocoding, will not be supported by this tool—see this FAQ for more limitations and known issues. As mentioned, we’ve open sourced the export and visualization code. The export code will stop working on December 3, when Fusion Tables shuts down. The visualizer will continue to be available for at least a year after this date. There are guides on how to deploy and host your own version of the tool in the GitHub repo. These and other tools—including BigQuery, Cloud SQL and Maps Platform—provide newer, more specialized alternatives to Fusion Tables, from data storage to mapping. We encourage you to explore these alternatives as you transition off Fusion Tables. Sincerely, The Google Fusion Tables Team © 2019 Google LLC 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 You have received this mandatory service announcement to update you about important changes to Google Fusion Tables or your account.

    Sprint's UL on L2500 is slammed right now. How else could they have the fastest download speeds and the lowest speed score in many cities across the country according to RootMetrics? Speeds like these are unfortunately common on L2500: Don't forget, a 9 megabit pipe can be fully consumed by a few people facetiming or live-streaming. And those kind of things are becoming more and more popular. The Super Bowl is probably the worst example you could have picked to make this point. Sprint had a DAS and several multibeam antennas deployed across the stadium and surrounding areas. This type of high-capacity setup is most definitely the exception, not the norm. How often do you speedtest lower download than upload on Sprint? I'd guess almost never. But how often is the downlink stable while the uplink is unusable? At least in my experience traveling across the country, its's quite often. Most large studies/online reviews tend to agree as well. If you already have excess downlink capacity when in mid/high band coverage areas while the uplink is struggling, why ignore the problem when you have a chance to solve it?

    I am terrible at following HSPA bugs because I don't see them myself.. I'll have to go back and look into this one again. There were some back-end Android changes regarding the PSC value; it technically does not exist on GSM connections, even though Android always reported a value and had specific functions to do so -- it was deprecated a couple of years ago, which caused me to backtrack. Some phones report HSPA information as CellInfoGsm, so no PSC is directly available; others report it as CellInfoWcdma, so I can get the PSC. I can work around it, but it's not as simple as it appears from your armchair.. 😜 I did see your messages and I am working on it. There's a lot of nuances I need to adjust in order to to discard the 1450 offset so it's a bit tricky. There are known issues with Android 10 that I have been working on.. didn't realize it was going to be publicly released yesterday so I was caught off guard. There will be an app update in the next day or so that should resolve most major issues. -Mike

    I think we are starting to see Sprint shutdown 3G in favor of a 1x/LTE only network. Today, I drove south in I-57 from Chicago to St. Louis and a large majority of the towers along my drive were only broadcasting 1x and LTE. I noticed this a few weeks ago in rural Indiana as well. Wider channels for VoLTE, I guess, and exciting times for Sprint .

    Sprint will be running 100 MHz of NR when DSS is ready. Of course, all of that spectrum won't consistently be available due to LTE traffic, but it will definitely be a step up from the 40-60 MHz they are using now. Keep in mind massive MIMO radios have a 120 MHz bandwidth limit. Sprint cannot broadcast more than 120 MHz (NR, LTE or both) through a single massive MIMO antenna. BWs greater than 100 MHz are only standardized for n257/n258/n260/n261. n41 is 2496-2690 MHz. Only 194 MHz are contained by the band. The largest NR carrier that would fit is 100 MHz. The only channel sizes greater than 100 MHz are 200 MHz and 400 MHz.

    I've been testing the T-Mobile network here in Grand Forks for the past two days on the Test Drive program. I am less than impressed. Of the 27 tests I've done, only 4 of them have had download speeds in the double digits. No tests have resulted in upload speeds in the double digits. Summarized data: Average DL: 6.76Mbps Average UL: 2.79Mbps 37% of download tests were slower than 5Mbps. 48% of download tests were between 5 and 10Mbps. 15% of download tests were faster than 10Mbps. 63% of upload tests were slower than 3Mbps. 22% of upload tests were between 3 and 5Mbps. 15% of upload tests were faster than 5Mbps. I will say I have yet to have a test fail.

    As Trip mentioned, the database is local to the device. You can use the database menu options within the app to backup/import/export logs. If you look at a populated log database, the format should be clear if you wanted to use your own data externally. All data from community databases needs to remain restricted to Premier areas only. No exceptions. -Mike

    Lets hope that it will be a far better modem than what was in the 2018 iPhone's. We will find out on the 20th. I did sign up for Priority Status, so let's see what promo's Sprint will give to existing customers.

    The verdict is that you are not the father. Oh wait, wrong topic. All joking aside. I love it. To be perfectly honest, I was happy with the Note 9, but with my travels and my dangerous need for having the latest stuff, I wanted the Note 10 just for the ability of a simplified DeX connection. But once I got the Note 10, I have been really amazed that even from the Note 9, it's a big improvement. Not only for what it offers but the signal is way better in areas I frequent. The camera is really neat. I can keep the s-pen in its slot and still use any other wacom pen I have laying around with it. VOLTE, fingerprint scanner actually works even through a screen protector. The included USB-C Headphones sound nice. The device has way too many things to point out.

    If my memory serves me correctly, Sprint deployed seven 9-beam fast-roll-off antennas at the stadium. This is 126 (9 beams * 2 tx/rx rows per antenna * 7 antennas) times the capacity of an average site and comes without the interference/SNR concerns we have in the real world. Don't forget that capacity was supplemented by other basic COWs and macros which covered the parking lots and other areas around the stadium. The super bowl is absolutely NOT a model for Sprint's performance across the rest of the network. This is exactly the point I'm making. Sprint needs to address upload speed problems, not download speed problems. 45x15 doesn't do that. 20x20+15 MHz TDD or even 20x35 would be a much better addition to Sprint's spectrum portfolio. Imagine Sprint's current DSS setup (40-60 MHz N2500 + 3x20 MHz L2500) aggregated with an additional 35 MHz of NR uplink. Now that would be a hell of a network. 2x is live nationwide. 3x is not deployed, but there aren't any devices that support it, so it doesn't really matter.

    Yes. The Pixel 3 can do TDD-FDD CA I believe, as well as many other devices. The way it would work is B25 or B26 is the PCC and is used for upload (no UL CA). Then B41 is used as the SCC for supplemental download. Presumably they can prioritize B41 on the downlink over the PCC (to keep B25 capacity for when B41 is too weak), but I'm not sure if this is actually possible. Either way, in some markets where B25 is 15x15 and B41 coverage is very good, B25 is can be unused and has tons of capacity. Same for B26. It would also help at events where the network puts everyone on B41 which is unusable from congestion, but B25 and 26 are wide open. That's a decent amount of extra capacity to add.

    Ingenium pointed me to this thread. I just finished configuring my 4-headed system for the Sprint network using the new Sprint Inseego/Novatel MiFi8000. Attached is a photo showing the configuration. Router: qty=1: Pepwave MAX-OTG-U4 (Max On-The-Go with FOUR active USB ports). Note that the "MAX-OTG" and "MAX-OTG-U1" just have 1 active port. The MAX-OTG-U4 Supports 4 USB WAN ports, 1 ethernet LAN port, 1 ethernet WAN port, and WiFi connections. Bought from 5Gstore.com Modem: qty=4: Sprint Inseego/Novatel MiFi8000 (a sister unit of the Verizon MiFi8800L). The MiFi8000 supports Sprint's bands (e.g. Band 41, etc.). Sprint has a sale right now. $2.50 per month for 24 months (i.e. $60). Bought directly from Sprint. Arrived with everything configured -- plug and play. No dinking around with SIM cards that don't fit, aren't the right format, or aren't recognized. Antennas: qty=4: Netgear AirCard MIMO Antenna. Bought from Amazon (B00DN3J03O). Quite frankly, the only reason why I got this was because it had the dual TS9 connectors and the cable is 50cm long. I previously tried some TS9 to SMA adapters, but wasn't happy with how that worked. Since I was paying $240/month for Sprint's old 120GB per month grandfathered plan, the plan for these 400GB is 4*$65 = $260/month. Yes, it is horribly expensive, but I live out in the country and have had continual problems since Sprint bought Clear and disassembled WiMax. Waiting for Verizon, waiting for SpaceX's satellite cluster. waiting for the continuous promises of fixed wireless, etc. and I'm tired of continually jumping through hoops. These companies could make a killing here in the country if they would just try... And I'm not in the "country"; I'm 2 miles outside of city limits. Even the pizza delivery people come out to me. But no cable, and DSL tops out at 3Mbps here. So I'm stuck with wireless. Pros: The Pepwave MAX-OTG-U4 works fine with the MiFi8000. Even though the MiFi8000 isn't in Pepwave's compatibility list, it was just plug-and-go for me. Speeds for a single MiFi8000 are 20 Mbps using a modest flat panel antenna. I'm not getting dramatically more signal-strength bars than without, but it does allow me to stuff the units in a drawer and stack the units up willy-nilly. The antennas will mount on a wall with a picture in front of them. The USB cable from the MAX-OTG-U4 powers the MiFi8000 units. It doesn't have any problems driving all 4 of them. The MiFi8000 has TS9 connectors. I would have preferred SMA, but the TS9's seem to work OK with this flat panel. Cons: The battery has to stay in even though the MiFi8000 is on the USB cable. If I take the battery out, it complains then shuts down. Since it is going to be powered 24.7, this is probably going to eat the batteries and these unused batteries will need to be replaced periodically... Thanks, Scott

    Just installed the update on my S9. No VOLTE unless they hid it somewhere. Also, no improved Carrier aggregation either.The last two updates done NOTHING that is visible to me. This is really starting to tweak me. WHY is the s9 being treated so badly? Is there some type of fatal design flaw with these phones that can not be overcome? VOLTE is available almost everywhere, but why not on the S9 which is still fairly new? No new aggregation options. It really needs the 25 &41 aggregation that is talked about but never appears. Due to improvements probably at the cell sites, I am getting locked onto band 41 much more frequently. But it is not usable because of the poor upload from the phone. I actually have LTE+ in my home at levels of -111 to -128. But at those levels, I get absolutely NO upload. No wonder people say Sprint Sucks and leave for another carrier. I do use Wi-Fi at home and that solves the issue at home, but waling into another building somewhere causes the DATA to freeze at these levels.

    I got say this note10 plus is biggest a big upgrade I seen. I am coming from the s8plus. The camera is so nice and I am still trying figure out all the features. I am so glad im back with the note series. I have miss the note and last one I had was the note 5. The phone so fast , its 40 percent faster on lte compared to s8 plus . I get over 200mbp down at my home most time now. MY S8 plus max at 170 mbps at home and average speeds where at 100mps(40mhz band 41 ). The signal on this phone is so great ,this thing so fine tune now. I got the blue one from best buy . It does 0 to 100 percent in about hour for full charge . Its going take me awhile figure out all features . SO IN MY OPINION , ITS WORTH THE PRICE !!!!! HELL YES
