    Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    Is it allowing CA? Sometimes when new equipment is fired up CA isn't always enabled immediately. If no CA, that is great speeds.
  2. Qualified because you speak in absolutes when that is not possible.
  3. I see 10+Mbps pretty regularly now that UL CA has been enabled on Nokia B41. And anywhere that has decent B41 coverage, the B25 speeds are generally 10+ as well on the upload. With a decent signal of course.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Read my post again. That's not what I said.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    No. That's not what is happening. Whatever is affecting your service, Sprint is not purposely degrading your experience. I have noticed nothing but improvements in the parts of the network I use. To degrade service on purpose would open them up to so many issues, it wouldn't be worth it just to try and sell the merger.

    Hurricane Florence

    Florence looks like it is going to be a very dangerous storm for the East Coast. It's a little too early to say where exactly it may make landfall, but anywhere from South Carolina to Virginia could be a target. The highest probability for severe wind impacts looks to be from Myrtle Beach to Morehead City, but of course that can change as the storm wobbles. Hopefully all of our members in the area are monitoring forecast updates closely. If you are along the coast, please make plans to evacuate! This storm is likely going to bring an unusually large storm surge because of the unusual path it is taking toward the coast. Let us know how you are doing and, of a lesser priority of course, how the network holds up.

    Network Vision/LTE - Missouri Market (includes St. Louis)

    First MIMO permit application in Springfield. Based on this I would assume MIMO work is also ongoing in Kansas City and in St. Louis! https://www1.springfieldmo.gov/permitstatus/PRJDetails.aspx?no=PRJ2018-01395 Thanks to @Rickie546 for pointing it out.

    Network Vision/LTE - Tucson/Yuma Market

    I totally missed the mini-mac, was looking in the wrong part of the photo. Interesting setup. Trying to squeeze everything out of B25 since B41 is limited?

    Network Vision/LTE - Tucson/Yuma Market

    I'm a little confused on what's happening here. Is this site B25/B26 only?
  10. UL CA on B41 in general disables HPUE. That's not unique to iPhone right now.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Still, you are stating guarantees off of assumptions. There are ways that Sprint could remain competitive with the other carriers going forward, it just seems like you refuse to see them. It wouldn't be easy sure, and it's quite possible they wouldn't be able to keep going after several more years, but to say unequivocally that they would fold is not true.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    We've already seen them turn the corner on network investments and revenue. For the next several years they would be fine. If investment continues at the current rate and they can get subscriber numbers up, they would absolutely be able to compete. You assume they will continue to fall behind in subscribers. If that happens, sure they wouldn't last for more than a few more years, but that assumption is not a guarantee.

    Hurricane Florence

    Extreme rainfall may end up being the worst part of this storm. Winds will certainly do some damage along the coast, but the storm should be weaker than it currently is by the time it reaches shore. Very concerned about the slow movement, or possibly even a stall along the coast of N.C. or S.C.

    LG G6 to be Sprint's first HPUE-capable device

    Has LG announced pie for any devices? I would think the G7 would see it first.

    I should have quoted Robert oops 😶

    Hurricane Florence

    Hurricane Warnings out now for North and South Carolina. Models still showing a lot of wobbling as Florence gets close to the coast. Even if you aren't near the center of the cone, pay close attention to updates. Some indications that Florence may stall and/or loop just off shore, which could impact large swaths of South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia.

    Hurricane Watches going out for South Carolina and North Carolina.

    Hurricane Florence

    The major effects almost certainly will. You could get some rain after the storm spins down, but the major wind and storm surge will almost definitely be well to your south.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Has anyone experienced unusual times shifts on your phone while roaming on T-Mobile? My dad is in western Kansas right now and his phone is showing UTC instead of central time. I'm not sure who he is roaming on, he's driving and not able to tell me. Normally one would roam on Nextech there, but I'm not sure if the T-Mobile deal might supersede that.

    Hurricane Florence

    I expect Florida will have minimal effects overall. There will be an increased rip current risk on the Atlantic coast. But beyond that, most of the impacts wind and rain wise will be north of the state.

    Hurricane Florence

    Yeah if the storm slows down once it makes landfall like the models are showing right now... could be tons of rainfall. Way too much.
