    This tower has to be 4x4 mimo. Its speeds are too consistent. 250-320 mbps at all times. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Tim YuSprint 4G Rollout UpdatesWednesday, September 12, 2018 - 12:45 PM PDT [Edit] It has come to the attention of S4GRU that the Magic Box also supports CDMA Voice Today, Sprint announced the newest Magic Box™ to the world. This Magic Box was first spotted in early summer and S4GRU did a quick write up on it here. Today's announcement formally revealed what new technologies this 3rd Generation public release will give to us. The highlights: This is some huge stuff here especially for technology nerds! Previous Magic Box's only utilized LTE UE Relay for backhaul up to 2 carrier aggregation at 2x2 MIMO at 64 QAM modulation. With 3 CA, 256 QAM, and 4x4 MIMO, this new Magic Box has the same capability as a Gigabit Class device on the Sprint™ network! In addition the notes about Wi-FI connection working for backhaul are huge. Sprint Band 25 or Band 41 may not reach indoors or even in some neighborhoods due to macro coverage patterns even though a Magic Box is available to use in a region. By having the option to use locally supplied internet via WiFi as backhaul, this allows Magic Boxes to enter locations where LTE UE Relay does not work. In addition, the ethernet port tidbit may also be a hint that using ethernet backhaul could also be an option. If so, this Magic Box would potentially support 3 choices of backhaul all in one unit; LTE UE Relay, WiFi, and Ethernet! Wow! With the coming arrival of VoLTE opt in in the near future, LTE coverage indoors is a huge concern. The now expanded reach of this new Magic Box into places previously unreachable is a huge step forward. Exciting! Sprint and Airspan sure loves Magic!

    MB went down a couple evenings ago -stuck in reboot loop. Checked here and no one had posted about the outage yet, so I performed a factory reset. Back to the reboot loop. It was up and running when I got up to go to work the next morning and seems to have been working ever since. We live out in the country, found a prefect position for the MB. 3 bars at -112dbm connect. Getting up to 20mbps down and up to 8mbps up on devices. The only internet we can get at our house is 3mb/0.6mb DSL, so we rely on this for our phones/data plans. LTE signal is nonexistent otherwise in the basement, 1 bar lower floor, 2 bars upstairs and 2-3 outside. With MB, it's 5 bars on our entire 2 acre lot.

    This guy from Xiaomi has been showing off pics of the Mi Mix 3 before release and this morning he dropped a pic that shows 5G in the status bar.

    20 MHz 2x2 MIMO 64 QAM = 150 mbps 15 MHz 2x2 MIMO 64 QAM = 150 * 0.75 = 112.5 mbps 15 MHz 2x2 MIMO 256 QAM = 112.5 * 1.33 = 150 mbps 15 MHz 4x4 MIMO 256 QAM = 150 x 2 = 300 mbps

    I would not let these Magic Boxes collect dust, but rather put them to use somewhere that has RF shadows - work, charity, store, etc. I have my Magic Box positioned to supply signal where I need it at a client. Also serves a daycare and a shopping center across the street.

    Some required core updates, prerequisite upgrades, Samsung sites may have required special modules and then changing the GCI sectors (Sprint tends not to go ahead until all three of its vendors can do something. Latest example - Massive MIMO). Another huge factor was likely the cost of backhaul. They also had to get Son's approval and raise the capital. 5G represents a leapfrog opportunity for Sprint. Most people don't understand how close to bankruptcy Sprint was before Marcelo took over.

    Probably. This $90 puts them in line with everyone else. From what I’ve seen on here, they’ve been having great momentum with the network so why not put in plans that can further help put cash into the network.

    Purchasing spectrum from spectrum squatters / speculators only legitimizes them in the eyes of the FCC and other government agencies. They demand money that far excesses the value of the spectrum and in the majority of previous cases require legal action to free up the spectrum for use that benefits the public. Ascribe all you want but speculators know what they're doing and it's basically extortion to telecommunications carriers like Sprint who have the capability to put said spectrum into immediate use while they do nothing with it.

    I don't get your response at all. He asked a reasonable question. If you're not happy, why not leave. He didn't make any statements regarding how well it worked for him, at least in the initial post, so why you had to include that does not make sense.

    Oh hello San Diego .... what do we have here... 4x4 MIMO huh! Lets check with the S9+... Weird... Wonder if 3CA is affecting it... (checks pixel 3 CA vs S9+ no CA enabled) Hmm... i wonder what'll happen if I disable 4x4 B41 MIMO on the S9+... vroooooooooooooooooooooooooooooom.
