  1. I am thinking of taking the plunge on AirPods myself. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. How is it Sprint has cut their pings down so drastically there? Conversion of the network core to Nokia? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. And most heavier data users don’t care that much about voice quality. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. As it is, it’s time for Sprint to be active in spectrum auctions again. mmWave and CBRS are all needed. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  6. Even if that doesn’t yield much of a gain, 2600 is still going to get better results in rural than mmWave. Now I’m not going to claim it would make 2600 like 600, but it’s pretty clear that 2600 is at least deployable in some rural cases. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  7. 5G has caused so much total stupidity in this industry. Look back at the 4G LTE rollouts. Verizon and AT&T pushed hard early on rural 4G in 700 MHz spectrum. This approach in the early days of LTE was ludicrously successful. Verizon and AT&T pulled away from their smaller competitors. Only when T-Mobile got 700 MHz and started expanding out of cities did their customer numbers really start to change. Sprint largely stuck in their existing footprint. Now we have AT&T and Verizon focusing on mmWave. Focused on urban and the exception like AT&T’s Waco adventure. Meanwhile T-Mob
  8. It will be interesting to see how LAA works with LinkNYC. I hope there isn’t any interference and everything is properly vetted in that regard, especially since LinkNYC is obscenely fast. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 12 MHz 700 30 MHz PCS 30 MHz AWS 30 MHz B71 0 MHz B66 There are larger markets with less spectrum like St. Louis for example. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Same here. Just got the iPhone X last Friday. Blown away. Just so fast and smooth. It’s unreal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Isn’t Sprint faster in Chicago? I have friends up there and they seem to be saying Sprint has been faster there for a while. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Anyone with an iPhone on here actually get a call on VoLTE on Sprint? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Masa Son is the chairman of both SoftBank and Sprint. He sets the capital budget of both companies, he has said as much to investors meetings numerous times. Under his ownership Sprint hasn't set forward a large geographic expansion and he has controlled Sprint for four years. The evidence on the table, as of now, shows he is not much to care about it. Now if there is a reversal of policy, I will be the first to credit Masa for making changes to Sprint's policy. That said, other competitors serve a larger geographic region and all have more connections. Now I'm not saying Masa Son
  14. No offense but if that's the case, and that is truly what Masa is thinking, he should divest himself of Sprint somehow. Fortunately I'm confident Masa will take a longer term approach.
  15. So Sprint is pushing both small cells and macro towers? I hope this is the new focus along with disruptive plans.
