  1. I'd argue that this is even better than paying people to switch. By giving out a free year of service, they can spread the acquisition cost over that entire year instead of incurring the large one time cost of paying off a phone or contract. Plus, if people leave before the year of free service is up, Sprint actually saves money since they didn't make a large payout. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  2. 850 refers to 850 CLR, aka Cellular 850. 850 CLR downlink is 869-894 MHz, uplink 824-849MHz. The name of the band doesn't refer to the actual frequency of the spectrum. Sprint has 800 ESMR, which is 862-869MHz downlink, 817-824MHz uplink. Verizon has the entire 22MHz 700C block on a nationwide basis, plus some B block in other places.
  3. I've seen that photo before. Those are fake and are put there to discourage birds from landing on the tower. Snakes don't climb towers. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  4. Open sourcing the project would be great. I'd love to contribute to SCP Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  5. It may be beneficial for a little bit, but then prices will start to rise and the customers get the shaft. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  6. SignalCheck uses the high level Java API for accessing cellular connection info. It's up to the manufacturer to properly the back end of the API that interfaces with the modem. They likely don't really care and just expose signal strength for the bar display. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  7. Of course the macros have it, but inside the stadium (where all the speed tests took place) the DAS is providing the service nearly 100% of the time. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  8. The stadium DAS doesn't have 4x4MIMO. They can definitely do 256QAM and get high utilization because of the nature of a DAS. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  9. The engineering screen never showed 2xCA. Been broken since the start. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  10. I had a very favorable experience with LG repair fixing my 5X bootloop. It took around 2 weeks in total. I chronicled my experience on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/nexus5x/comments/5l66de/_/dbx1oim It seems to me that the issues and delays people experienced were due to lack of parts at LG in combination with the holiday season. Now it seems that LG has the parts on hand and is able to repair the phones in a timely manner. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  11. Mini macros are an all in one BTS/RRU unit that has the power of a macro in the size of a small cell. They support a max of 2 B41 carriers and 2xCA.
  12. Yes, you can see the Sprint logo on the left in linked picture and right in front on this image http://i.imgur.com/uCvhvan.jpg
  13. Courtesy of the T-Mobile subreddit, here is a Sprint COW setup for inauguration. Poster mistakenly identified it as T-Mobile, but T-Mobile is nowhere to be found. https://i.imgur.com/1C5VTCb.jpg Rest of the setup including AT&T/Verizon bulb antennas http://imgur.com/a/xwOZk
  14. The press release states that they have COWs set up with 3xCA to handle the load. I suspect they're just not powered up or not available for public connections. Inauguration isn't for another week. Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk
  15. T-Mobile published an EOY 2017 expected coverage map today https://i.redd.it/03zpfb7hhy7y.jpg If it's anything like most of their coverage expansion, it will be poor quality with large site spacing. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk
