  1. What kind of generators are in use? Natural Gas fired? From what I understand, natural gas delivery is also an issue. Diesel? Gelled up diesel could cause problems as well. Neither of the above issues would happen during a hurricane. Not making excuses, just pointing out that sometimes even backup ideas fail,
  2. 700mb/s seems like such a weird speed cap to me. At least for residential customers, tiers are normally 100/500/1gig. I'm struggling a bit with understanding the 700 limit that appears to be in place
  3. I addition to the 30 month financing option, we still had an 18mo lease option - but now a big downpayment with reduced monthly payments.
  4. This is the first time in many years that my wife and I wont be upgrading from our iPhone 11 Pro's. Previous years, I am pretty sure we simply paid $100 down, did iphone forever, and paid the $41.xx a month for our 256gb versions. This year, Sprint site wants $350 down with reduced monthly payments. Just seems much less attractive this way, so we are skipping. 😕
  5. I think you are missing the point. Sprint, in enough places to matter, had (and still has) the superior network - wether it is talking about LTE coverage or speeds. The issue is that (legacy) T-mobile simply does not have towers in a lot of areas, and instead rely on their low band to give the guise of coverage. Its easy to paint an area pink to show 'coverage', yet when you go into that area, you get zero service. Sprint, on the other hand as an example, in my basement, is getting download speeds of 90+mbps. The attached image is a great example - it is painted pink, yet if you
  6. Some? Yes. Unfortunately nothing firm. There are still plenty of us out there who are on the Sprint network getting spectacular service where the is little to no Tmobile network coverage. As of two weeks ago, Tmobile customers here went from a very slight signal to no signal all over town. Looking at some posts in that reddit thread makes it sound like upgrades for legacy Sprint customers to an iphone 12 will possibly push them over to Tmobile being the home network. If that's the case, I predict a LOT of infuriated customers - me included. I'll stick with my iphone 11 pro just to keep S
  7. That means That means you are on 2XCA with B41 being both carriers.
  8. I disagree somewhat. Having the info available in widget format would be awesome.
  9. What? T-mobile has B71, they quite literally have no need for B26 once B71 is deployed everywhere. B26 is going to dish. So I'll ask again... What are you suggesting is the 'sprint native' network that will be shut down?
  10. I'm confused. What are you suggesting is the 'sprint native' network? B25 and B41 will be transformed to tmobile - which I think will be mostly seamless to end users. B26 will eventually be used by Dish, but I'd think that before that is done, Tmobile customers (and those formerly known as Sprint customers) will have full unfettered access to Tmobile B71. So again, other than those people at the very limits of B26 coverage, I hope this will also go largely unnoticed.
  11. I NewTMo can make that happen everywhere - they are going to have a LOT of happy customers. Nice! edit: However, it does appear Willmar has a tower located in town, so I wouldnt expect any less. Still though... Nice!
  12. Sure - that is true what they said about the 'keep sites'. However - I don't think anyone has seen a list or a map of sites that will be kept, thus, I'll stick with " I will believe it when I see it. "
  13. It's times like this that I am glad I live where I live. The closest native tmobile site is 14 miles away, and there is a Sprint tower less than a mile from me. I'm hanging on by a thread right now hoping that tmobile comes in and does a full 'new tmobile' build on this existing sprint site. If I have to default to native tmobile coverage right now, I'm boned.
