    Sprint's plan is to deploy standalone NR with EN-DC, as they don't suffer from the same uplink issues mmWave deployments do. This is effectively an NR PCC aggregated with LTE SCCs. That being said, I don't know if we'll see SA or NSA NR for the initial launch. Judging from the upload speeds in the screenshots I've seen on various Sprint engineers twitters', I doubt the initial launch will be SA NR...

    Mines here! Airave 4 LTE https://imgur.com/gallery/XjgM91n Super small campared to the 3. Setup wasn't bad other then the power is in a strange location on the unit, hard to plug in with big fingers.

    So it's up and running. Here's a screenshot from signal check pro. It looks like I'm connected to the voice side, but when I place a call I don't hear the 3 beeps. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Found my first two M-MIMO sites in the area: SE03XC104 (located by Wild Waves in Federal Way) and SE03XC278. They are both broadcasting five L2500 carriers.

    I think that is totally unrealistic and completely bad! That is a completely protectionist approach in a free market. The market should drive prices not artificial price freezes. Network Investment takes capital. Terrible idea. Government should stay out of setting prices.

    So, I’m. A LONG time lurker, have learned quite a bit from reading here, thought I should probably make my first post! Ben with Sprint since y2k, diehard Android user (was an HTC fan until I got stuck with a Bolt when my 10 died) have recently gotten my first ever Apple device, the 9.7” iPad. I’ve been seeing some interesting things here in the central Ohio area (I use Signal Check Pro regularly), and became a sponsor to see if any of it has been posted on the maps here.

    Iirc TDD on 5NR can also have more flexible timing arrangements. Basically shift to upload more quickly if all the download slots are not filled. Sorry, no link. No guarantees Sprint would do this either. Really best to just wait and see at this point. 8 days away.

    According to Legere’s Post and Pai’s Statement, here are the concessions Sprint/T-Mobile agreed to: - Assurance of 97% U.S. population coverage within three years of the merger’s close, including of 85% of rural Americans. - Assurance of 99% U.S. population coverage within six years of the merger’s close, including of 90% of rural Americans. - Assurance that 90% of Americans will have mobile broadband access at 100Mbps or more, with 99% being able to access speeds of 50Mbps or more. - Assurance that at least two-thirds of rural Americans will have access to high-speed, mid-band 5G. - Assurance of divestiture of Boost Mobile to retain competitiveness in the prepaid wireless segment. - Billions of dollars in penalties to the FCC if the merged “New T-Mobile” fails to follow through on these commitments. We’ve all seen what a deterrent these penalties have been on Google and Facebook. They simply see it as UPS/Fedex sees parking tickets: just the cost of doing business. I don’t have much faith.

    It’s seems John and team are ready to hand these concessions over to the FCC on a silver platter Giving up boost/ pricing guarantee/ and a rural build out seem a very small price to pay to get this approved. Keep virgin and metro I guess they would consolidate virgin with metro into one. I just think it’s silly keeping boost as an mvno it’s like creating you’re own competition lol.. approval is set soon before the shot clock Expires https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-05-19/t-mobile-sprint-said-to-prepare-u-s-government-concessions Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So after some thinking, I decided to pre-order the LG V50 5G from Sprint. I hate leasing phones and I wasn't planning on getting it but at $14/month, why not? Let's just hope that 5G gets enabled in my market in the next 18 months. I had to use a VPN to order it since I'm not in one of the launch markets.

    FCC's Ajit Pai and the DOJ's Makan Delrahim may already be on the same page regarding the merger after all. Before Ajit Pai announced he will approve the merger, he had met with Makan Delrahim per the New York Post. Ajit Pai, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, “consulted” with Makan Delrahim, the head of the antitrust division at the Department of Justice

If they fail to meet these commitments, they will voluntarily pay into a fund in lieu of other enforcement action.

    Considering they would not be able to afford to roll it out anyway. I would say the chances are 1-2%. It would be better spent on the on going network because 600 million is not much money at all in telecommunications. That's like 1.5 months worth of upgrades. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Verizon's NR deployment is NSA (non-standalone). They are using LTE for uplink. Think of it as an LTE PCC aggregated with a downlink-only NR SCC.

    Something I'm really curious about. If Sprint gets the $600,000,000 breakup fee from T-Mobile, what are the odds that they use some of that to buy some of Dish's lowband?

    Its clear that the device side back to the site is mostly the issue. I think it says a lot that Big Red decided to only make MM WAVE transmit one way for now...

    I did see that report on Verizon using 4g LTE at a lower frequency for phone upload. Many of us wish b25 was used for upload with b41 for download. CA b25+41+41+41+41 or whatever. With 5g's higher channel bandwidth and speed, it should not be as much of an issue. 5NR upload at 40MHz should be 4x, 60MHz should be 6x, 100MHz should be 10x. Of course the real world may differ.

    Really hope this doesn't get shot down, because that means I have to jump ship to Verizon.

    If the Merger fails, I think he will sell them off to some cable or Dish. However they are still confident it will pass. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk

    I might! 🤩 Hope this helps. Under the My Sprint > Click Permissions > Once you are there click my account tab, which should take you to the old layout > Look under "your bill" you see "Recent payments" > click see details > on the right side of the page look under "I want to..." and click "see my order history", it should be a DM14 order ID and you should be able to use sprint.com/myorder to see what the orders are. It will only show once someone processed the order into the system though. Let me know if you can't access it still.

    I wish you were able to order one online, but you have to call their Airave or Magic Box support

    Sigh. Not happy. But maybe at least Ill be able to visit family in Fresno and get better than the .3 speeds Sprint has be proud to offer for the past decade.

    I am very happy with this merger. Get'ir done! I want to see roaming on each other's networks immediately. Don't wait for the close of the deal. I guess selling Boost was a good way to make sure that all or most of the Boost stores stay open which was a significant worry.

    Yes! Very well surprisingly, but being able to pull traffic away from the B25 2xCA nearly all around makes the experience amazing!

    The CDMA module for the magic box is supposed to be deployed soon. It plugs into the Ethernet port on the magic box and broadcasts 1x (and maybe evdo?). So that's an option for them. Or they could get the Airave 4 which just launched. I think the CDMA parts are identical. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
