  1. So I finally received my gateway and got it setup last night. So far I've been very impressed with this thing. Speedwise I've been getting between 50-120 down and 50-70 up, which is insane coming from 5-10 upload with Spectrum. Obviously with cellular there's been plenty of fluctuations but none I would have noticed without running speed tests constantly and comparing them. Ping has typically been 40-90 ms to whatever server speed test app picks, which isn't all that much worse than my Spectrum service that averaged around 55 ms consistently. The device was super simple to setup, and is

  3. When I worked at Verizon, people would call in all the time with 10+ year old plans from companies that no longer existed One customer had a north dakota plan where every other state was considered long distance! One had a car phone plan! A CAR PHONE PLAN. I think they got 20 minutes a month. Verizon had no issue keeping all these. NOW, if your old plan had unlimited internet, then Verizon cared lol.

  4. Sure, I think you have good points in your favor. The literal terms of the merger are not the only basis to ask for equity.

  5. I know it’s a long shot, but according to the merger terms it should of been honored as is. I would be happy with 1080 streaming compared to no throttle currently. Going from no throttle at all to 480 is ridiculous.

  6. Results are in! It looks like T-Mobile got 40MHz of C-band in NYC, AT&T got 80MHz, and Verizon got 160MHz. My hope is that T-Mobile works out a deal with NW Spectrum LLC where they trade the 40MHz of C-band for the 40MHz of BRS/EBS licenses they're squatting on. After the swap, T-Mobile will control all 197MHz of BRS/EBS in most of NYC. Also let's not forget that T-Mobile got that 10MHz CBRS PAL last year in the Bronx. In parts of the south Bronx T-Mobile is missing more than just 40MHz. Perhaps their intent is to give up C-band and CBRS (a total of 50MHz of spectrum) to gain all of the re

  7. Did some mapping in the East Village this past weekend. My S21U was really struggling with n261, had to try 4-5 sites before I could actually maintain a connection. n41 was fast and reliable in the majority of places I tested. n41 vs n261 on the same site: Did a bit of mapping in the Greenpoint area, as well. Only two of the five sites between Nassau Ave and Newtown Creek have been upgraded with n41, so still a bit of work that needs to be done. Unfortunately, the Sprint site on Ash Ave doesn't seem to be designated as a keep site.

  8. I know people keep saying that the merger terms say that because it seems logical that they should have, but there is no such commitment in my opinion. The commitment was to offer plans of equal or better value than plans *currently* being offered at the time of the merger. That commitment is entirely satisfied by the "Exception plans" and nothing more is there in my opinion.

  9. Are there network reset codes for TNX (Tmobile) like there was for Sprint (##72786#)?? One of my lines (S21 5G) in the St. Louis area is dropping calls after 3 mins very consistently. It appears to happen on WiFi-calling and on TMO network. We're all on TNX for my 5 lines. Anyone have any thoughts?

  10. the magenta max is similar to the ed 1500. but the only problem with ed1500 is that you will not get 5g sa because of sprint sim. (that is if you have a 5g phone or will get a 5g phone in the near future) you should switch to the magenta max. for me, the the new magenta max is great but its one short of our ed1500. I have the option to buy new phones with 2 year contract pricing. With taxes and fees, I have preordered the 512gb s21 ultra for $971. no trade in or anything. full retail price is $1379 and with nyc sales tax it comes out to about $1500). we buy phones every year. one li

  11. Yep. The $70 plan still isn't great...not a ton of hotspot and still SD-only video...but the 100GB deprioritization limit is nice and of course 5 GB of hotspot is better than 3. Bumping the top-tier plan from 720p to UHD for video is significant though, as is doubling the hotspot cap...and removing the deprioritization limit on the entire network is a testament to how string TMo feels their network is. Guessing they figure they can add mid-band capacity quickly enough to deal with network congestion. They also probably know that VZW and AT&T can attempt to match this once C-Band comes

  12. In the pictures of the proposed design the top portion looks vented on the bottom so we might finally be getting regular antennas hopefully. Also just taking a look at the Sprint small cells around my home, the time between the reservation date and when they were actually installed was only a few months. But then again Sprint was moving really fast on small cells here.

  13. I remember the lte rollout with Sprint. It was rough for many people. We were all tracking cell site upgrades and reporting issues all over the place. It was great and wonderful and awful and frustrating. Everyday, someone was threatening to change carriers. I am glad I stayed. I only changed to Tmobile in the last couple of years when I relocated to an area where Sprint was weaker and I couldn't get a good signal indoors. I am really glad to read these posts where people are overcoming the rough patches while the new Tmobile is rolled out.
