  1. We can only hope that T-Mobile plans to take full advantage of its full b41/n41 spectrum. This is a very good sign.
  2. It is one of the first devices with Wi-Fi 6E (extended), which has the traditional 2.4 and 5Ghz along with the massive 6Ghz spectrum.
  3. I would kick this back to iansltx. It matches what I would expect until a market is converted to a greater degree. Although we are hearing exceptions now, for roaming to T-Mobile (and back to Sprint if you need it) you need to be on Sprint.
  4. Which carrier is billing you and which carrier is providing your primary service?
  5. Just set SignalCheck Pro to display the ip address (plus turn off wifi) then touch the ip adress and SCP will tell you which wireless carrier is being used.
  6. One of the goals of this is to likely get more Sprint users on 5g phones on the T-Mobile network. Typically in mergers unique sites are converted first. Given that I have seen no T-Mobile conversion permits for unique Sprint sites, T-Mobile's goal might just be to cream off the Sprint users that live near their sites or don't care. Conversion of sites could then be determined by profitability and how many people actually leave T-Mobile.
  7. Or tgey could sell the 2.5 to T-Mobile and just use the 3.5
  8. A duverse group of purchasers including cable companies. What caught my eye was 2.5Ghz WISPs like W.A.T.C.H.TV. Maybe the will sell their 2.5Ghz to T-Mobile as part of 3.5GHz plans.
  9. Go a notice about that on Thursday for a Sprint LG G4. Many other carriers version of this phone supported VoLTE. Just another tactic by T-Mobile to get people to switch to their network without doing unique Sprint site conversion work List of phone from above link: The following devices are impacted and will lose Wi-Fi Calling support on October 30, 2020. Kyocera Hydro Vibe LG G Flex LG G Flex II LG G Stylo LG G3 LG G3 Vigor
  10. Given the decades Verizon (and AT&T) and their successors had a monopoly on low band I think this request should be deferred for a simular amount of time.
  11. Really depends on if they keep all the sites. The increased amount of low band should definately help. It also could be an easy first root metrics state win for T-Mobile for not too much money just like Shentel did a couple of years ago.
  12. Low cost 5g phone: https://www.t-mobile.com/news/devices/revvl-4-revvl-5g
  13. One advantage with T-Mobile for 5g: it is like being a new freeway with almost no traffic. AT&T and Verizon use DSS for their non mmWave spectrum so almost no advantage except in a few places. As always, test signal in the areas you need it first.
  14. I believe most users were resimmed and now use T-Mobile.
  15. mmWave's best use is in crowded stadiums/concert venues, and other outdoor crowded areas etc. Not certain when we will get back to that with Covid-19 so active here therefore mmWave equipment has a bad ROI right now. I keep my phones for a long time so I would want all layers of the cake plus Vo5G. Personally I need to stay on Sprint since my T-Mobile network phone lives on b71 in my urban home inside the beltway. Fine with what I have right now, but without nearby Sprint site conversions, I would move to AT&T if my current phone breaks (or CDMA is dropped) and I was forced to be only
  16. Sprint would only get a six month window. I suspect the New T-Mobile with just get 12 to 18 months.
  17. They will certainly want to bid on some, but I suspect they will be more interested in more n41 spectrum when it goes to auction. FCC needs to get moving if this will be done before January 20th will a possible political change. Thete are many areas where they only have 55Mhz contigous b41 spectrum.
  18. Or you install multiple massive MIMOs per sector in the markets that can handle it/ need it. Another option is to leave most Sprint b41 up where possible until needed on the T-Mobile side.

  20. Sounds like you have become quite desperate during this pandemic. Lol
  21. 600 repack is reported as finished. https://twitter.com/AjitPaiFCC/status/1282720582447124482?s=19
  22. Columbus permits have lacked antenna detail for a while now, which may be related to anti 5g site violence, competive secrets, or the FCC leadership wanting licensing sped up / fees reduced.
