    With that being said though, I'm going to let it optimize for a while before drawing any final conclusions. Our Gen 2 MB generated 60+mbps downloads, and thus far with the Gen 3, it seems to be 'stuck' at nothing higher than 30mpbs downloads.

    Our Gen2 MB... stats: RSRP: -105 dBm CINR: 17.0dB Our Gen3 MB... stats: RSRP: -98 dBm CINR: 19.9dB Box is in the exact same position. Pretty impressive difference. We are still non a non-3xCA macro site, but we are ready to rock for whenever we finally get upgraded.
  3. Hoping they push this out to other markets soon. Was depressing to leave Atlanta and Dallas this week (where I had VoLTE) and came home (to where VoLTE is not live.) . Ugh

    Second chat agent hooked me up. . Amazing the personality difference between the two that I dealt with. I was most surprised that when I was on the phone with the OKC team that they said to try again in a month or so.

    HUCA (HANG UP CHAT AGAIN.) . .... worked for me. Second chat agent was perfectly happy to get a Magic Box Gold headed my way, along with a return kit for my current MB.

    I literally just got off the phone with Magic Box support and was told there to try again in another month or so. Ugh.

    Yep - I'll be calling in to get one of these to replace my MB.
  9. Other than capacity improvements, can someone put into layman’s terms why all the hype about ‘5g’ ?? I’m in Midtown Atlanta and am seeing frequent speed tests of 150-200mbps download speeds (which is TWICE as fast as our home ISP) and i am trying to understand the use case for consumers.

    Welp nevermind on that. Ran a speed test this morning and now we are back to 55-65mbps download and 5+mbps upload.

    You have mentioned this is multiple posts, but you are the only person I have seen saying it. I hope you are correct. *crossing fingers*

    Apple Watch Poor LTE Performance

    Anyone know how watches will (or will not) work with roaming agreements? I know that my LTE watch was inoperable in Canada even though my iPhone was solidly on Rogers LTE.... but how about domestic roaming via approved partners like tmobile (whenever that goes live) ?

    Why? Did I miss something? What is happening on 12.1?

    Have been reading on reddit that foilks roaming are seeing the same thing (time zone changes.) Pretty wild.

    Our speeds are not that low, but where we were a consistant 60mbps download, we are now stuck around 15. Odd.
