  1. This is in fort bend county, they have the entire 196MHz there.
  2. From that site on Monday. That brings the total of 2.5GHz currently deployed to 160MHz here (60MHz Sprint LTE, 40MHz T-Mobile LTE, 60MHz T-Mobile NR.) The N41 carrier was bringing in 300-350mbps download in great signal conditions, which is short of the 900 or so it's capable of. However, this could simply be a lack of backhaul at the site. The site kept my phone on a lone 5x5 B66 carrier for the LTE anchor (there is also a 20x20MHz LTE carrier deployed).
  3. https://www.t-mobile.com/news/network/tmobile-achieves-significant-5g-firsts The X55 modem can do VoNR (Done on T-Mobile with a OnePlus 8). I would expect T-Mobile to add VoNR via software update to all X55 phones once they have SA and VoNR ready on the network side.
  4. 2.5GHz install on a T-Mobile site in the Houston area: 29.7018566, -95.7397737 Site is only broadcasting two B41 LTE carriers, no N41 as of right now. Talked with the crew for a bit and the four of them are tackling four sites per day right now.
  5. https://www.reddit.com/r/tmobile/comments/hkm90h/chicago_nw_burbs_n41_bandwidth/ 40MHz of N41 live on a T-Mobile site in Chicago.
  6. I think T-Mobile is just wanting to reduce Sprint churn, an extra free line increases value and makes it harder to leave.
  7. I think they're just showing possible long term spectrum that could be used for 5G.
  8. AT&T DSS just went live in North Texas: https://www.pcmag.com/news/atts-5g-network-gets-more-dynamic
  9. They are not using DSS, they have 15x15 running on LTE, and 15x15 running on NR. They have access to nearly the entire 600MHz block due to Covid right now. The same is in Houston, 15x15 LTE and 15x15 NR.
  10. New forum section... Are we going to do a separate thread for just NR deployment/tracking?
  11. Correction, it looks like 25 and 30 are there for N66 now. https://www.sqimway.com/nr_band.php
  12. Unused in Philadelphia, and for NYC the same frequency Sprint was previously using for N41.
  13. The latest 3GPP release shows 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, and 40 MHz bandwidth support for N25, N2 still only 5, 10, 15, 20 so I would assume T-Mobile has been dipping their hand in this. N66 also shows support for 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, and 40 MHz.
  14. I'm doubting they will. I'm not sure they want to run the antennas in split mode. More and more 5G devices over the next few years, LTE is going to be an afterthought to them. NR is more spectrally efficent, so they're probably going to keep pushing hard on getting 5G devices in people's hands.
  15. It's been many years... but we're going to finally see the true power of 2.5GHz. Proper backhaul does wonders.
  16. They would be forced to probably implement DSS, and focus more on mmw. Battle VZW and ATT in the few remaining sub 6 spectrum auctions.
  17. https://business.sprint.com/solutions/sim-swap/ Anyone seen this before?
  18. All of T-Mobile's 5G phones have got the update to do this at this point. The 5G Mclaren got the capability back in February. Here are some screenshots from back then I have when it was first enabled. Ignore the missing information up top on NSG, this was a beta build.
  19. While B71 cannot be the anchor band for N71, it can be aggregated with N71 by sharing the same antenna path in current T-Mobile 5G phones.
  20. I'd kill for a source on individual T-Mobile N71/N41 sites going live. Was so spoiled with all the Sprint information during network vision.
  21. Ignore any kind of band priorty menus, those are only for the inital scan of coverage. The network will determine what band to put you on after the initial connection.
  22. T-Mobile runs LTE and NR on 600MHz spectrum, so B71 LTE and N71 NR. There are no ENDC B71+N71 combos, so if you're on LTE band 71 then you are not connected to NR N71. N71 requires a B2/B66 anchor atm. You can check engineering screens to confirm what you're connected to.
