    Minor development news for the Beta Crew.. because of where I was at in overhauling SignalCheck Lite when I discovered the EARFCN bug that impacts LTE band 66 (and 71, and potentially others), I implemented a workaround in Lite first. I launched a SignalCheck Lite alpha channel (no different than beta, it's just semantics based on how I had to set it up on the back end) to facilitate testing. Lite is missing a lot of features that Pro has, but you can test the EARFCN workaround right now if you're impatient -- I am in the process of implementing the same routines in Pro, and hope to have a beta out sometime this month depending on how much free time I have. To enroll in the SCL alpha, first opt-in here: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.blueline.signalchecklite Shortly thereafter, you should see the alpha version of Lite on Google Play. You'll know it's the alpha because the release notes say it, and it should be version 4.482Lb. If you see the old version (4.28L from 2015!!), give it a few minutes and try again. Pro and Lite are two independent apps so you can have both running on the same device and they have no impact on each other. Any and all feedback is appreciated! -Mike

    AT&T and Time Warner got the green light. Let’s open the flood gates officially to buy up whoever. This ruling today gives and shows there little to no reason why Tmo and Sprint cannot marry.

    PCMag's Fastest Mobile Networks 2018 is out now. Here are some quotes from it regarding Sprint. https://www.pcmag.com/Fastest-Mobile-Networks

    Its pretty insane, thats without 4x4 MIMO or Massive MIMO live.. If they pair B25+B41 and CA uploads will not be an issue at all. Its just a matter of Sprint making that a priority. At this point, they are more focused on launching VoLTE and deploying B41 on all macro sites/small cells.

    Sprint really kept up with the other 3 and at times exceeded them in raw download. It's the upload that holds them back soo much.

    No surprise here, but the Charlotte, NC results show that Sprint has a lot of catching up to around here. 30.63 / 8.05 - AT&T 25.32 / 7.74 - T-Mobile 7.28 / 2.12 - Sprint 30.95 / 6.46 - Verizon

    Tim YuSprint 4G Rollout UpdatesFriday, June 8, 2018 - 3:00 PM PDT It has been a little over a year since the first Magic Box publicly available was announced. In the time since then since the Airunity 545 "GEN 1" was announced, minor revisions were done as "GEN 2" with the Airunity 544 sporting a LCD display and subsequently the Airunity 546 having an more aesthetically pleasing exterior. All LCD display models are known as "GEN 2" respectively. Come next week starting on June 11th, 2018, the GEN 2 Magic Box's (AU544/546) will be considered out of stock and a GEN 3 Magic Box will take over the reigns in the beginning of July 2018. Though information on this new unit is scarce, information attained by S4GRU does suggest the new revision may potentially contain user accessible USB Type A ports and have a slightly lower transmit power. More to come as S4GRU discovers additional information about this GEN 3 Magic Box.

    Doesn't matter now. At&t is allowed to get Time Warner with no conditions. That Tmobile merger is basically guaranteed at this point.

    I am still finishing up the EARFCN workaround, among other things.. it's going well, just lots of code to pick through to make sure I'm not missing anything. I'll send you a PM. -Mike

    Just imagine when gigabit lte shows up! Granted Sprint announced plans to roll out gigabit lte back in March 2017 and its June 2018 yet they still have not delivered but this is great news especially since they still have so much in the arsenal.

    Mike, In my region, Clear sites with 03/04/05 for the last two digits in the GCI represent B41 third carrier. This is a relatively recent development. - Trip
