  1. Their coverage is so exaggerated that it's almost criminal. Having said that, T-Mobile has done a lot of rural work since 2012. It's gotten to the point where they have much superior rural network than Sprint does in Texas. Sprint's only saving grace is Verizon CDMA roaming. But once that goes away, Sprint will be stuck with a skinny voice network (unless they find a way to bring VoLTE to older handsets or allow WCDMA roaming).
  2. There's no way to refute this without getting a bit political, so I won't do that. But what I will say is that 5G is very important for our economy. I really hope the merger happens as it seems like SoftBank has hit a dead end. It's gotten to the point where they can't even give the service away for free.
  3. Meh. Sounds like someone is trying to make an article out of nothing.
  4. Great article! Just one question; Since Sprint usage is prioritized over MVNO usage (at least that's what most MVNOs state in their fine print), are MVNO users assigned a different QCI that gives them lower QoS priority? It would be interesting to see if plans such as Sprint's Kickstart, T-Mobile Essentials, and Verizon's goUnlimited also have a different QCI.
  5. LTE wasn't launched on mmW spectrum. Apples to Oranges comparison. 5G is a whole different monster.
  6. It actually isn't concerning or unexpected since the stoppage was expected by all parties. New fillings were submitted by T-Mobile/Sprint. It is all part of the process. This merger is still likely going to happen. Some people in power will question it in order to toot their horn (it's politics 101), but will ultimately not stand in the way.
  7. Am I the only one that feels like these maps are a huge letdown? Sprint holds the spectrum advantage with their EBS/BRS spectrum. They have the ability blanket most markets with wideband 5G. Yet they aren't. Why? Why not go scorched Earth on their competitors and widely deploy 5G? That DFW map is a joke.
  8. https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-inks-533m-reciprocal-long-term-spectrum-lease-deal-sprint?utm_source=internal&utm_medium=rss So spectrum will exchange hands via lease soon. Any ideas which areas will be impacted the most?
  9. Try turning off CDMA BC1, BC10, LTE B25, B26, B41. Don't force anything. Just let the phone do it's own thing after turning off all those bands.
  10. You've answered your own question. Outside of jailbreaking, there's not much else to do to get that info.
  11. If you have a rooted Android, you can turn off the Sprint bands and see the extent of T-Mobile Roaming.
  12. Sprint PLMN, so it definitely is T-Mobile. Only question is why is it coming up as "Roaming"? I thought all T-Mobile roaming this far was showing up as native on phones?
