  1. Drove up US-15 again yesterday, and found that additional sites have been marked as keep sites. Basically, every site along 15 between Farmville and Culpeper that wasn't co-located with T-Mobile (or nearly so) is now running 312250. - Trip

  2. I guess the 3 of us are the select few whose service got better, as that is the experience for me also. The 5G rollout is moving faster than I expected both n71 and n41, and the speeds are there to match. Plus, the towers that I knew of with slow n41 speeds are starting to see optimizations, as their speeds have also gone up. It's a great time to be a T-Mo customer with a 5G device in NYC. Speaking of towers, T-Mobile seems to be placing all of their bands on all of their macros, including their midband only sites. There are (technically were now) 2 midband only sites that I know of, and they both got the 6449 and lowband treatment, eNB 56208 and 55976. The reason I mention it is because it seems like 56208 got the wide RFS panel that people have seen outside of NYC, instead of the double skinny RFS panels.

  4. T-Mobile did two news releases today. T‑Mobile Has Most Reliable 5G Network (Again) According to New Report T-Mobile has been found to have the fastest, largest, and most reliable 5G network in the U.S. according to umlaut. Although I don't disagree with the results, I still think we should take it with a grain of salt since it was commissioned by T-Mobile and it doesn't look like they covered a very large area. A 5G Build Update! And a Look Toward the Future of 5G T-Mobile now covers 165 million POPs with Ultra-Capacity 5G and 305 million POPs with Nationwide 5G. Neville also bragged about how they fully expect to maintain their spectrum lead well into the future. T-Mobile will average 100MHz of mid-band nationwide by year-end covering 200 million people for a total of for 60 billion MHz pops. This is compared to Verizon who plans to cover 100 million people next year and use 60 MHz of C-band to get 6 billion MHz pops. That same math for AT&T with their 40MHz of C-band is 4 billion MHz pops. In 2023 when the rest of the C-band spectrum becomes available T-Mobile is targeting 300 million people covered with 200MHz of mid-band for 60 billion MHz pops. Verizon says they’ll cover 200 million people with 160MHz, bringing them to 32 billion MHz pops. And AT&T will cover 200 million people with 80MHz of C-band, they’ll be at 16 billion MHz pops. Also here's an updated (though still low res) map:

  5. Finally got the July update on my AT&T phone this morning. 790 MB. Still waiting for it to hit my T-Mobile phone.

  6. Hit San Antonio and Austin this evening (and the stretch of 35 between). San Antonio is up to 100 MHz in many places, though I saw 80 MHz in one. Austin seems to be at 100 across the board. Looks like where that 100 MHz is got reconfigured very recently (last few days); it's now basically 2500-2600 MHz, with B41 2CA sitting at the top of the NR channel rather than below. Sprint B41 is at 2680.

  7. These threads are a joke. 28 upvotes on a comment that says "NYC and east of the city seem to be on a steady decline the past couple of months". Uh, would you like to specify where? There's only 5K+ sites in that area. That's not to say that I haven't been seeing some slow speeds. For example, I stepped out of the subway into Union Sq Park the other day and was only able to pull ~2Mb/s on n41. Or congested (but still usable) service on some LTE-only macros in certain areas of Harlem. Or some congested LTE oDAS nodes in Williamsburg. But this happens on a block by block basis. On the other hand, more often than not I'm pulling 300+ Mb/s. I rounded the corner at Union Sq and was immediately able to to pull a 400Mb/s speedtest. My average speed at home has gone from 200Mb/s two months ago to hovering around 300Mb/s. Etc, etc, etc.

  8. Despite the chorus of complaints and the (now weekly) Reddit thread stating that T-Mobile is getting worse and how everything has gone downhill I'm still spotting more and more n41 and still getting super fast speeds. I took this test at a red light in midtown around 42nd St and Second Ave this afternoon.

  9. Haven't seen this mentioned anywhere, but it looks like some B48 deployments were mapped in the Bronx back in April/May. eNBs 146589 & 146586 on CellMapper.
