    An interesting note here in this slide which shows best and worst download speeds in some key markets (during peak congestion times). Sprint was #1 in Seattle and Boston. But even more noteworthy, Sprint is only last place in one market...Denver. T-Mobile was often the slowest in this selection. Even Verizon and AT&T all had at least one too.

    I was in Atlanta and Sprints 5G coverage was impressive but most of the time it felt like LTE speeds with a 5G icon. Kinda of like AT&T's 5GE. When band b41 LTE didnt work good then neither did N41. The highest speed I managed was around 450 which is great but it was not common. Also the fact that it was using LTE at the same time makes it even more obvious that Sprint is not putting the backhaul as a high priority. I went inside the Atlanta aquarium and had full bars of 5G but speeds at best was around 15mbps. Meanwhile Verizons LTE was doing around 75mbps and 40-60 upload too. All and all I gotta say I was left fairly disappointed and now see why Sprint needs T-mobile. Sent from my SM-G977P using Tapatalk

    This is amazing. In an homage to the warrior-poets Warren G, Nate Dogg; I'm so thoroughly pleased by the regulators for once, they appear to have mounted up successfully.

    New SCP beta 4.54b rolling out now.. minor bugfixes behind the scenes, primarily this is to align with the public app update also going out today. Goal of the next round of testing will be to add some features for Android Q including 5G support. Thanks for all of your support! -Mike

    I hope they go court personally. It will help clarify the limits of DOJ's powers to force a settlement and whether they have standing to sue under the antitrust laws in this instance. I am totally against spectrum concessions and I am also against any concessions that can come back to hurt T-Mobile.

    Just got my LG V50 today and was worried at first because SignalCheck was having issues where it wasn't updating the signal info. But after this update, things seem to be working now!

    Do you mean wifi/ethernet backhaul? VoLTE over MBs is being worked on.

    Power outage in midtown. Looks like backup generators are doing their thing since cell service has not been interupted so far.

    Yep, for years now as soon as I got on the island I switch to 3g because that was reliable while lte performance was non existent regardless of the time of day or night or location. Now I don't have to do that anymore.

    Interesting stuff. I'm excited to hear how performance is, especially latency.

    Sprint doesn't love MM/SC setups, they were just the cheapest way to replace Huawei Clear equipment per government order. That particular site was a Clear equipment swapout. It is scheduled to get triband this year, I believe. Any MM clusters in the area are from former Clear sites. We do not have any MM on NV setups in this area.

    It's odd. Atlanta is a huge cox market which Sprint got a great deal with backhaul and small cells which was apart of their agreement. Small cells were fast but b25xca 5mhz each and b26 was terrible. The need more pcs, more lowband, better backhaul, better uploads and deep indoor reliability is horrible.

    I gave up on Sensorly a year ago. It was good for a long time, but not any more.

    USA Mobile Network Experience Report (July 2019) https://www.opensignal.com/reports/2019/07/usa/mobile-network-experience Here’s where Sprint stands. Lots of work to do... although Sprint was only .1 behind AT&T in 4G availability percentage.

    That was when I was with Verizon. Im good with tmobile. I was able to get Verizon to take back my phone at no charge due to marginal service at my home.

    I ran multiple Rootmetrics App speed tests along the route. I utilized different servers and ran the tests multiple times. At certain locations while on the tracks, I was able to pull 100 Mbps down. At other locations it dropped out completely for a couple minutes, dropped to 1x or it was barely hanging on to 1 bar of LTE as we went along. It did this repeatedly. I ran speedtests when it did that and I reported the issue in the My Sprint App. Given that I received a mix of good and essentially “zero” speeds in locations, I’m not sure that signal degradation was the issue. I believe it’s more due to poor tower spacing and congestion. Based on my experience yesterday, Sprint’s service along Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor needs some major improvement, because honestly I was left holding a brick at times. Emails wouldn’t load. Links wouldn’t load. You can’t market a service like this.

    Thanks Chris92 for the info, that sounds like great news as far as Sprint's potential capacity goes in the Quad Cities. I'm actually considering getting rid of my cable internet at home and just using the Sprint cell phones I currently have, which have 50GB of hotspot data per phone. Sprint has really come a long way compared to not long ago in this area when Sprint's typical speeds were under 1mbps.

    Really goes to show that despite all of the anecdotes, Sprint is pretty much on par with all of the other carriers in almost every metric besides upload speeds.

    It wasn’t a hard concept: “hey, let’s add band 41 to all sites and see what happens. Lol a bit sarcastic, but that’s what it took Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
