  1. I know you can't have B71 be the "anchor" band for 5G, but are you sure it can't get aggregated with the other LTE bands? according to what my phone was saying it was showing 5G as "connected" and i had 3xCA on LTE, the only bands around me are B66, B2, and B71. So that to me says i had 3xCA with those LTE bands plus N71 5G.
  2. yep, thats exactly same scenario. your phone is aggregating LTE B2 + B71 as well as 5G N71 from the same tower. just the LTE alone at 256QAM, 4x4 MIMO on B2, and 2x2 MIMO on B71 would get you to 346mbps on the LTE alone https://www.cellmapper.net/4G-speed
  3. could be.... but i've hit as high as 396mbps on "5G" before. and i put the 5G in quotes because it was really 15mhz B66, 10mhz B2, 10 mhz B71 LTE plus 10mhz N71. so if you were on an upgraded t-mobile tower with that much/more spectrum available between LTE and 5G you can hit that high.
  4. thats how t-mobiles implementation of 5G works. ALL towers have the EN-DC stuff enabled to be anchors for 5G, even if they aren't broadcasting 5G themselves. So you can be connected to LTE from an anchor tower and 5G from a different tower. Thats why you see so many complaints about the 5G speeds, your phone says 5G since you are connected to a LTE anchor thats close, but the 5G could be coming from miles away. EDIT: plus you don't have to be connected to 5G for the 5G icon to show, just being connected to LTE with EN-DC enabled will show the 5G icon. what i haven't figured out is when you do a speedtest, is your speed only coming from the 5G carrier? or is it aggregating the LTE from the close tower plus the 5G from the further tower? I know for sure if you are connected to LTE and 5G from the same tower it is all aggregated together, I've almost hit 400mbps connected that way.
  5. i need to send you a diagnostic report. i have the oneplus 7T 5G phone and have not yet seen the limited 5G info pop up. Cellmapper will show my 5G connected state as true but nothing will show in SCP. I'll get you a diagnostic report as soon as i can! thanks for all your work on this!!!
  6. Posting this here as I assume it's Verizon..... In the pic the round cylinder out the top back have been installed on light poles in our area for a couple of years now. Recently the triangle of panels started showing up on the same poles that had the cylinder ones. Anyone know what the triangle ones are?
  7. i have a feeling that the report i sent in i was really connected to LTE, like signal check was showing, but my phone is showing 5G..... once i get around to an actual tower that has been upgraded with B71 i can do some more testing and send more reports in. I have a feeling though that tmobile is showing 5G when when connected to LTE on the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G phone. Speed tests and signal check info remain consistent if i'm on "5G" and drop it down to LTE manually.....
  8. updated to the latest version. walked around my basement for a bit and so far it appears to be updating every few seconds. i'll keep an eye on it and let you know if i see any issues, but so far its looking good!
  9. i sent a diagnostics report from my app last night, oneplus 6 on android 10 where its not updating data very frequently.
  10. I would not be surprised if it was t-mobile B71 upgrades, i've found 2 towers with it live in central iowa in the past couple of weeks now.
  11. no issues here! the network in central iowa was already broadcasting as T-Mobile while iWireless was in control. So there weren't any transition issues or anything for me.
  12. B71 live in Ankeny, IA!!!!! https://imgur.com/gallery/OCrS3Ml
  13. there are 2 towers in ames with B41 installed. even though i don't have sprint i still check for permits, there hasn't been a new B41 install for awhile, at least a year now. you can see where the B41 is in ames off of sprints coverage map.
  14. LTE + is the name they use for B41, so if you see B41 you are on "LTE +". the WDM marriott definitely has B41, it got it back when i was still on sprint and i confirmed it from that tower.
  15. nice! glad they got it working, also nice to have confirmation that there is something they can/need to do on their end to get it to work if its not. yeah i didn't expect the call to be able to carry over since iwireless doesn't have VoLTE enabled on the network in Iowa yet. i'm hoping that along with a few other changes, is on t-mobiles radar to do right away once they take over iwireless!
