  1. Coverage map was just updated before these sites went On Air. Haven't had a chance to go around and see in person yet. Asurion Lead Technical Consultant II Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  2. 24 sites just went online yesterday for B26 LTE around Tucson and Sierra Vista. In addition to the 3-4 sites that have been going up each week for 1x800 all over the place. Asurion Lead Technical Consultant II Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  3. GLANCE shows the upgrade date, not necessarily whether it is actively broadcasting yet. That being said, for 2.5GHz upgrades in the area they have been the same date. And the network will move you where it wants to put you. So it may not let you on 800MHz if 1900MHz is fine. There isn't enough room on 800MHz for everyone.

  4. Well there's been 4 (Edit: 5) 1x800 sites put online across Tucson this week so far, 1 in Sierra Vista, and 1 in Green Valley. And that's just the On-air Notifications from GLANCE which seem to be delayed a bit. They do state 4G 800 has been completed as well but without a date for it. TUCSON: Congress/Stone area Sunrise/Craycroft area Greasewood/Anklam area Park/18th area EDIT: Found another near Orange Grove/La Cholla that doesn't have any date listed, so no On-Air notification. SIERRA VISTA: Busby/7th area GREEN VALLEY: Basically Southern GV area. Asurion Lead Technical Consultant II Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  5. Had to come in for an hour or so. It's roughly in the I-10/Congress area. It's not on a major intersection itself, it's a rooftop site on one of the buildings around there. It also lists LTE 800 as completed as well on that site in addition to 1x800 voice. Asurion Lead Technical Consultant II Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  6. Info came from GLANCE, not my device. So it could be a reporting error, but less likely at least here. Asurion Lead Technical Consultant II Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  7. I'll have to look when I get back to work on Wednesday. But from memory it was basically the I-10 and Broadway area. Asurion Lead Technical Consultant II Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  8. Just got an On Air notification for a 1x800 voice upgrade on a site in downtown Tucson. I don't remember seeing any other 1x800 yet that close to the border. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  9. GLANCE yesterday suddenly updated showing two towers with 2xCA updates completed a few days ago. It also showed those same towers estimated 3 months for B41 though. Both on the outskirts of town, opposite sides. Me being curious, I decided to go take a look at midnight last night/this morning. I figured if they were up and broadcasting that should be a good low usage time for some speed tests. SignalCheck Pro was inconclusive, just said LTE with no Band shown on both my G5 and Pixel. GCI: 6E04E12. SignalSpy on my Project Fi phone (don't have it loaded on the G5) showed "Band 41? (2500MHz)". GCI: 6E04E12 (same as above). DEBUG screen showed a Band 25 connection on both devices, UL and DL Channel 8296. Second site showed identical info everywhere except GCI: 6E05613 I ran a speed test just to be sure, definitely was a Band 25 connection - 25.14 down 13.64 up 46ms. I took screenshots just in case, but I included the info above.
  10. It appears it was CDMA international roaming specifically, removal of all remaining international CDMA roaming with the exception of Canada.
  11. Same thing I did before, I'm a Retail Tech. BTW, got it updated. The entire PRL system is much simpler now than it used to be.
  12. In case you all have missed it. Günther Ottendorfer is doing another AMA on reddit tomorrow 12/15 between 11am-12pm Pacific. I've copied below the /r/Sprint announcement from about a week ago for those that haven't seen it: Günther was named Technical Chief Operating Officer at Sprint in August 2015. In this role, he is responsible for overseeing the company’s network, technology and IT organizations, including related strategy, network operations and performance, as well as partnerships with network, technology and IT vendors. As his bio states, Günther has a substantial amount of industry experience having started his international career in the telecommunication sector over 20 years ago. In 1996 he became a founding member of mobile operator, max.mobil, in Austria. He then served as Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Chief Technology Officer (CTO) for T-Mobile Austria, as CTO for T-Mobile Germany and as European Technology Director at Group level for T-Mobile International. In 2011, Günther became Managing Director, Networks at Optus Singtel, Australia’s second largest telecommunications provider. He also led the nationwide introduction of LTE and TD-LTE which Optus pioneered as one of the first providers globally. In 2013, he joined Telekom Austria Group as Group CTIO, and drove major wireless expansion, convergence and network function virtualization projects across the countries of the group. Günther looks forward to answering more of your questions on Sprint's pioneering efforts, network performance, LTE Plus network, network technology and roadmap, LTE Advanced, 5G, Network Function Virtualization (NFV), spectrum, and its Densification & Optimization strategy. Please join us in giving Günther another warm welcome to /r/Sprint!
  13. Well, now that I'm back at Sprint again, I have access to the matrix I had before. It's a different and less user-friendly thing now unfortunately. I'll try and rework the first post with a new system and keep it updated going forwards again.
  14. Hey, I'm one of the two active moderators over at /r/Sprint. Yeah we've only got two for the place and somehow it isn't burning down. I haven't been very active around here lately, but used to be quite a bit. I'm definitely interested, just send me a PM here, a PM over on reddit, or send a message to the moderators over at /r/Sprint and we can talk about it.
  15. From my understanding, without a Nexus device, no phone can swap between Fi carriers because they can't read past the first carrier on the SIM, which is T-Mobile.
