    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    T-Mobile gains access to B-41. In major cities, this is a big item for T-Mobile.
  2. Hummmn, they are still using the old nTelos SID on 1x.
  3. I was on I-68 Sunday and did not notice any new Sprint Coverage. Some 1x was there, no Sprint LTE. The 1X was well below the standards we would expect and I really did not see any improvement yet. However, as I write this, I am thinking that the US Cellular LTE might have been showing on SCP and I may not have realized that Sprint 1x was available in previously uncovered locations.
  4. I was in Cumberland, Md and Deep Creek , Md on Sunday. Only had Sprint 1x and the coverage on that was not good. However, I did have LTE coverage on US Cellular. It was OK, not fantastic, but ok. Not everywhere but it was where you needed it. Was on US Cellular EVDO and 1x at times too. It was great that Sprint allows use of US Cellular facilities while they upgrade their network. Allegany and Garrett counties were ignored by Sprint for many many years. Now that they have turned that area over to Shentel we are going to see the service greatly improved. Sprint finally did the right thing. If they could not provide service in the area themselves, turn it over to somebody that can and will. Shentel WILL fix it and soon. I did note that when driving into the area from Hagerstown, my phone resisted connecting to US Cellular LTE until I started trying to figure out why. I think it might have been the Airplane mode on/off action I took that seemed to wake up US Cellular LTE. Once it connected one time, then I was good all day.

    Yep, Sprint's CDMA 1x800 is GREAT. I sure hope they keep it around as long as possible. Right now, VOLTE will not have the same coverage that the 1x800 does. Band 26 LTE(800) will never match the coverage provided by the 800 1x coverage, not even close.

    This may give you a start. Might not be exactly what you want. http://new.monitorsanywhere.com/ Several different things here.
  8. The solution here is to check prices at Amazon BEFORE you even think about going into Wal-Mart
  9. Great Find concerning the Shentel LTE Plus Coverage. The jwMaloney maps even show the difference between inside and outside LTE Plus coverage. You now have one vote for making the jwmaloney maps the official Sprint Maps. The B-41 coverage shown on the Maloney maps appears to be fairly accurate too. How can the Sprint managers see these jwmaloney maps and then look at the official Sprint maps and feel good about their products they place out for public consumption?
  10. Central Pennsylvania - Harrisburg, York, Carlisle, Chambersburg, Waynesboro. Maryland - Hagerstown West Virginia - Martinsburg Probably more than I mentioned. Does not look like any Shentel data has been upgraded for a long time. That is a shame since the service is great. The mapping should reflect that, but it does not.
  11. LTE Plus coverage not showing in Shentel territory

    Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    You must have a lot of Square footage, because an Airave will normally cover a fairly big home.

    No. The Magic Box will only interface with a Cell site.
  14. 20X20 on band 25 could be possible in some of the rural areas but I have not seen it anywhere. Some of the more populated areas that I frequent do not have it either, probably because CDMA voice is still needed.
  15. Sure it would be nice to have Band 41 in every corner, but if you saw how rural some of these areas are, you would not spend the money to activate band 41 either. When you have more cows and cornstalks than people, you need cell service but you do not need 3xCA band 41. if you have two band 25 channels running at 20 down each, would you spend thousands to add band 41?
