  3. I've got a Gen 3 Magic Box being shipped to my house, should be here in a few days. If nobody beats me to it I'll post pics. I was wrong.... see below

  4. I know for a fact there is expansion happening that isn’t shown on that map so I’m unsure as to how accurate it is.

  5. Neighborhoods mentioned by the CFO to me means expansion for suburban sprawl. The last time Sprints network overall was expanded with new sites was back when Clearwire was putting in Wimax sites - and even that was not allowed to finish (thus leaving coverage gaps). Even areas with no population growth have continued to expand. Growth in the south and west and places like Washington DC, Minneapolis, Columbus have outpaced the Sprint network. B26 LTE 800 helped but more needs to be done. When people arrive in their new neighborhood they should see good Sprint signal, else they might change

  6. He didn't say 70% of all sites. He said 70% OF LTE SITES. Given this was before the massive push for the GMO's to get LTE in 2017, it was probably true that 70% of LTE full build sites active at that time had B41 live when he posted this. Especially if you consider an adjacent Clearwire MM B41 site adjacent in former CLWR markets. Seems like we had a post here at S4GRU calling him out as incorrect or lying back then. I seem to recall explaining the significant difference in ALL SITES VS. LTE SITES. And the number of LTE Sites is only accurate in the snapshot of time that very moment.

  7. It would make sense to start with Clear sites. BTW in this area, I'm usually hitting between 40-60mbs during the day.

  8. I just wanted to say that so far, I'm loving the GS8. I've had it for a few weeks now.

  9. Care to shed some light on the areas you know of that’s not shown on the map ? I would love to know so I can get an idea of what to expect moving forward Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Should be similar to my GEN1 in terms of articles (lcd display, external battery). Can't wait to see it! Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

  11. Could be a possibility. Sprint will probably create a “cable hub” where smaller cable companies can offer cellular services in exchange of Sprint using their backhaul

  12. I'd like to repost this map as it looks like this is the expansion they are making on the fringe in theory. I'm wondering if this is just the 2018 expansion. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

  13. We've come full circle. It wasn't too long ago that we had multiple companies invested in WiMax technology because they thought we'd be using computers over cellular data. Little did they know it would be using a Qualcomm SoC and not an Intel one.

  14. Remember, there are tens of thousands of GMO's that just got LTE. When you consider that, it's not surprising at all. The percent of full build sites with B41 or a nearby Clearwire MM B41 site is much, much higher than 50%. But when fully diluted with all sites now, 50% sounds right. But it sounds like Sprint wants to close that gap relatively quickly now. Robert

  15. Looks like Sprint is a Microsoft/Qualcomm partner for those awesome looking always connected laptops coming.. 22 hours on a single charge(Qualcomm Soc) connected to Sprint B41 sounds awesome! https://www.qualcomm.com/news/releases/2017/12/05/qualcomm-launches-technology-innovation-advancements-always-connected-pc

  16. Dish has no low band spectrum. And before anyone says Lower 700 MHz E block or band 29, that is not low band. AJ

  17. Possibly. Increasing density, but not really expanding the footprint. Recently we've seen more evidence of the B41 footprint expanding.

  18. I love the plan to get all bands on all towers... this is something with low band that T-Mobile has not done. It will give Sprint an advantage if they choose to do this in addition to the high band add.

  19. There’s band 71 live on a tower in Omaha now. Also on one south of Omaha on I29. I mapped some on cellmapper Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  21. Covered in last conference call. It is part of the April 2017 expansion where they purchased the Sprint sites / customers in the Cumberland/ Frostburg area (part of Sprint Western PA market), Marietta, OH/Parkersburg, WV and Gallipolis, WV (Sprint West Virginia Market), and Portsmouth, OH (Sprint Columbus Market). My guess is the remaining counties of the Sprint West Virginia market will be merged back into the Columbus Market. A few sites in this area may already have been upgraded equipment-wise, but it may not have been turned on yet (one found, others checked, some photos still being re
