    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Sprint will never go out of business. The only options they have at this point are succeed or get bought out. A carrier with 60 Million customers doesn't just close up shop.

    Galaxy S9 Series user thread

    This is a million times more stable than the S8 beta last year and it seems like Google Pay still works. Edit: Google Pay doesn't work.
  3. The deprioritization limit hasn't been raised from 50GB as far as I know. Nothing was stopping them from being deprioritized before. Now, they'll just hit that limit faster. If the site is not being strained then they won't experience deprioritization at all.
  4. I think that it's all for show. They've probably studied how people use hotspot data for a long time and know most people aren't actually going to make use of that much hotspot data in the first place. It's just nice knowing that it's an option, even if you don't use it.
  5. Sprint is also being honest about the fact that they use roaming partners to have greater LTE coverage. For a long time people would knock Sprint for their use of roaming partners but it seems that they're trying to spin that into a positive. It's pretty smart.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    I'm not sure but their argument seems pretty baseless considering both Sprint and T-Mobile are already both majority owned by international companies.

    I got the October security patch on my unlocked S9+.
  8. Tons of us probably have experienced it but in order to confirm it you needed a rooted device. Because most of us don't root our phones we just don't know when we're using 4x4MIMO or experiencing 256QAM.
  9. I don't have a list of phones but the S9 series and Note 9 are gigabit LTE devices.
  10. People have started posting speeds of 300Mbps+ more recently and 200Mbps+ speeds are becoming more frequent. I was recently at LaGuardia airport pulling 178Mbps which could likely be attributed to gigabit class LTE since it is a very busy place. I've noticed my Band 41 speeds in general are faster than ever before.
  11. It's a network side update but you need a gigabit LTE capable phone to experience it.
  12. Sprint Reaches Nationwide LTE Advanced Milestone and Delivers Gigabit-Class Performance in More than 225 Cities Gigabit class LTE is now nationwide. Sprint has deployed over 21,000 outdoor small cells now. 15,000 strandmounts and over 6,500 on-street mini macros. A huge improvement from having only 2,000 outdoor small cells deployed last year. Also over 250,000 Magic Boxes have been distributed. Sprint Reports Year-Over-Year Growth In Wireless Service Revenue With Fiscal Year 2018 Second Quarter Results

    Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

    On a more positive note, I was in LaGuardia Terminal C today pulling 170Mbps+ down and 8Mbps up.

    I went to Powerhouse at the Prudential Center and the DAS inside got overloaded. They had two Band 41 carriers but only calls and texts would go through. Text based social media like reddit also worked but very slowly. T-Mobile was in the same position as Sprint with only calls and texts going through. Verizon and AT&T data still worked but was really slow. There was also no WiFi to offload to which sucked.
