    I plan on switching over my second phone number to Altice Mobile sometime this weekend. Im currently using a cheap Tello plan for my second number. Really curious how the switching between Sprint and AT&T will be and what type of Roaming on Sprint there is. Also wondering if it will try to connect to Optimum hotspots before it uses a mobile network for data.

    We'd need to see how the Eero software is configured. It just seems like something isn't right with your setup, and I'm not sure what it is. Can you post the IP addresses of a few devices connected to the switch? Just to make sure that everything is getting a local IP. I would delete the forwards. What IP are you forwarding them to? Remember the Airave 4 has two IPs, so either way you'd only be able to forward to either CDMA or LTE, not both. They each use an independent ipsec tunnel using ports 500 and 4500. So at best the forwards would only work for one. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    A 1x*800 signal can travel much more than 3 miles and even with some trees hurting the signal strength. The signal can also be blocked at even less than 3 miles depending on what the obstruction is.

    A usable signal on 1x800 is available much further away than the distance any Sprint LTE band is usable. It was likely from another site that is further away or was voice roaming on another CDMA carrier in the area.

    Many sites are 4x compatible but there aren't any devices with four lowband antennas. Nevertheless 4x at the site improves signal stability (at the cell edge) as well as propagation/penetration because there are simply more transmit paths.

    I guess it comes down to what the default behavior is on most consumer hardware. I'm not sure if the DMZ there is isolated from the main network? My understanding on consumer hardware is that it's assigned a LAN IP, but all non forwarded ports on the WAN IP go to the DMZ device. It's a hack to avoid port forwarding or when you don't know which ports to forward, and is a security issue. Or at least that's the way I've seen it behave on a lot of residential routers. On more enterprise hardware, I know DMZ behaves as you said, offering an isolated place to put untrusted equipment away from your primary network. Basically acting as a separate vlan. But I'm guessing for the average user, their DMZ won't behave this way unfortunately. For anyone with capable hardware, I would recommend putting the Airave on its own vlan, with access to your other vlans blocked. That's the way I run mine. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    Outside MetroPCS acquisition which gave TMobile some 700A, they started in earnest getting 700MHz like 5yrs ago now. It doesn't matter if it is just 5 or 10MHz wide or that they don't have a 700A license that USCC holds. It's the fact that they have many 700A licenses, have had it for many years now. Yet a lack serious deployment to cover their gaps, lack of deployment in totally new coverage areas, etc. Sure, TMobile is getting 600MHz up there and quick. I expect them too. Just like they did with 700. But will it be above and beyond 700s deployment and be closer to ATT/VZW/Sprints level of deployment where low-band is essentially on every tower or just end up being a sprinkling. The 700 experience or lack there of, for me, does not instill confidence in complete and total commitment. The merger hasn't gone through, but when it does, 3yrs may not be enough with how many years TMobile has had with 700. Over those three years there is going to be loads of work at all levels for TMobile so who knows where resources are going to get diverted.
