  1. Thats my best guess. It is pretty pathetic. Only B26 and two B25 carriers are keeping it going. Speeds are good b/c I think plenty of people have left which makes everything better. As I noted earlier, I picked up my first B41 signal north of Paseo on Wyoming this past week. I was sitting outside of starbucks with RSRP of 125 and pulled 50mbs. There are two monopole locations along Paseo and those do not have updated tri-panels. I can't seem to find where I picked up that signal.
  2. I believe this is the case. Most towers they are the same space. I can only count 5 or 6 in NE Heights where they are not. I am sure there are more though. Most of the ones I can think of are monopole.
  3. I would say all towers have received NV update. However, I would say less than 25% of towers have B41. I have found only 4 8t8r. The rest are all mini macros. I can now confirm downtown has been updated to 8t8r as I could only aggregate one additional B41 carrier. It now has 3 and basically all times of day I am greater than 100mbs.
  4. One thing I’ve noticed since they turned on volte is upped backhaul. Downtown is where I work and the lone b41 tower was always swampped. However, midday now I pull greater than 100mbs. Sometimes 130. I would say they fixed some issues that I had. I also live in far NE Heights ans they have updated a tower to b41. I can’t find it but at my house I have Rsrp greater than 110 and still get 50 to 80 Mbs. I’m hoping the next 6 months this spreads more.
  5. Well I think VoLTE was just launched in ABQ. I was on band 26 and got a call. I took it and then placed my phone on speaker. I looked and it said LTE still. I will try again and get pictures.
  6. This is what I was wondering. My box runs on a single b25 carrier and pretty much doubles what we get at our house. It is a great fall back just in case.
  7. No I’m ABQ. I haven’t seen any new LTE carriers, volte, or anything. Service has suffered as a result.
  8. Honestly depends on how they file bankruptcy. Option 1 smaller carrier purchases it Option 2 customers will be divested in markets to potential buyers to pay debt. I say this as DOJ antitrust or FCC says no, Tmo would still be able to buy assets and or customers but only in certain markets. I could also see the spectrum is sold Who knows really.
  9. From a GAAP prospective, there would have to be an asset on the balance sheet that would have to be amortized if that is the case. As redspark said, something will show up on the BS.
  10. Driving yesterday and I noticed a tower with sprint and Tmo was being upgraded. Stopped and asked. Crew was one of several crews installing Band 71. It was pretty neat. The equipment is dual 12/17 and 71. Longer than me. Huge. Well they said all of Albuquerque will be completed by Jan 1 when clear date for stations for band 71.
  11. I would normally agree with you but that happened over a year ago with the second band 25 carrier. Ill do do some tests today to see what is on 1x and 3g.
