  1. The only thing that's going to happen is they will cut down on goodies and keep the same prices, which doesn't go against what they promised the DOJ. Pretty sure we'll start seeing our unlimitted plans throttled a few months after the merger and Dish just sucking and staying an MVNO until VZ, ATT and the new tmobile paying a premium for their wireless licenses. Not anything diff6from the previous mega mergers from airlines, ATT/Time Warner, ATT/DirecTV and ATT/Cingular. All just fluff.
  2. I believe my phone actually picked up B26 in Las Cruces, at least signal check displayed that. I’ll be back there in February, I’ll verify if it was a true hit on B26. B41 runs at 40+ Mbps and B25 at 20+ Mbps, hardly any slow spots in Las Cruces. I imagine El Paso still has some bad areas, but at least around Bowie Bakery I had useable service whereas before it would just timeout.
  3. El Paso and Las Cruces are night and day from when I was there a little over a year ago, especially Las Cruces.
  4. Also, on a separate note, my magic box is providing upload speeds I had never seen before from it. Upwards of 6 mbps. Is this a result of the 64 qam on uploads?
  5. The small cell in my neighborhood is getting close to having backhaul deployed now that ATT is bringing FTTH to the neighborhood. The pole is right by the primary flex point and its handole. Also saw them pull the main backhaul fiber from a handhole a block north from the small cell.
  6. I didn't take any pictures of the sites in Las Cruces, but from what I gathered they replaced their old equipment with 16t16r equipment. It was a great experience overall, even on B25. B26 will be a great addition there.
  7. So visiting Las Cruces this weekend, drove though El Paso and I-10 seems to be fixed between just east of downtown El Paso all the way to Las Cruces. Las Cruces itself seems to be covered with 8t8r's as I am seeing 3 carriers in the south, central and northern parts of the city. Just the addition of B41 unloaded a lot of B25 for those less lucky areas. Haven't seen MM and it's curious that El Paso has those while Las Cruces gets the better equipment.
  8. If they're getting ready to start rolling out B26 they probably need to go install RRU's since they probably hadn't bothered, being in the IBEZ and what not.
  9. Something from Forbes Regarding the in screen fingerprint scanner everyone keeps hoping for.
  10. Well that explains it. I'm actually impressed they upgraded their current customers without having us call in for the upgrade.
  11. Unrelated to Sprint, anybody here from San Antonio that uses Spectrum for their internet service? The past few days my internet speed has gone up, damn near pulled 200 Mbps DL just a couple minutes ago. 150 Mbps last night. I'm not complaining, I'm just wondering if they are changing their 100 Mbps tier to higher speeds or if I'm just getting lucky with this. I haven't made any changes to my account.
  12. Looks like the small cell I found a couple weeks ago is close to coming live. It Needs a power meter, don't know if this will be a relay or if it will have a different type of backhaul. Don't know much about small cells. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1yYsqb51_yI9kbGZccxXqy9ds4j1laxDz/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/121fw6XrIBB3FW8jngwdQ0qa9xHw3tUWh/view?usp=sharing
  13. This is the first sign I have seen of Sprint doing some physical work in San Antonio since a few permits that came through earlier in the year. I tried looking for permits for this install, but I didn't find anything in the portal for either Sprint or Mobilitie. This makes me wonder if Mobilitie has a subcontractor working this area.
  14. Here is the tag on the pole. No equipment on it yet. It just came up this evening, around 6 I'm told.
