  1. 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?
  2. Really? I used to turn it off on the Google Nexus all the time. That's very odd.
  3. 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.
  4. You've answered your own question. Outside of jailbreaking, there's not much else to do to get that info.
  5. If you have a rooted Android, you can turn off the Sprint bands and see the extent of T-Mobile Roaming.
  6. 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?

    Yeah, those speeds are good enough for just about anything, including HD Video. I guess I'm one of those people who stopped caring about top speeds and just wants reliability and usability.

    His screenshot is showing -107 RSRP at the time of the Speedtest.

    Nice to see there is proper backhaul and not satellite backhaul like in some Wyoming sites. Unfortunately, -118 is pushing the limits of LTE. What area of New Mexico is this?
  10. My needs? Is battery performance not important to people? I guess manufacturers must have missed the memo because they are cramming as much battery as possible to their devices (some even removing the headphone jack for battery space). I guess Sprint should also stop bothering with UL CA, HPUE, and high order QAM...because utiz said the majority of people don't care for UL. 0.01 Mbps for everyone! ?‍♂️ You've been told once already to ease up with presenting your opinions as fact. Stop arguing for the sake of arguing.
  11. It's discouraging, but it would makes sense. They've gone a few years without spending any meaningful money. So what's another year? Makes absolutely no sense to waste money on your network if you're confident the merger will go through.
  12. It's not. Which is why I don't have Sprint anymore. Unfortunately, your "I'm always right" attitude blinds you from seeing the benefits of having good upload speeds.
  13. Slow uploads consume a heck of a lot more battery than fast uploads over LTE. Uploading a 5 minute, 4k video on a fair B41 signal could take HOURS. Uploading that same video on Verizon, At&t, or T-Mobile usually takes a few minutes. That's a bigger difference on battery performance. For the sake of this argument....yes. Yes there are.

    You'd be surprised at the number of govt officials selling themselves to O&G companies all over South and West Texas. The fact is, many foreign companies (including Wal-Mart) have been accused or found guilty of doing business the way Mexicans DO business. If you want stuff to get done, you have to buy the right "services". If you don't, then delays happen.
  15. This is something I stumbled upon on Sprint over a year ago as well. I noticed that in areas with B41, I could get 30-40 Mbps on the Speedtest app. But on Netflix's own speed test site, it would max out at 12-13 Mbps. These speeds made sense for network management purposes (ED1500 allowed for such thing under T&C). The minimum speed requirements for 4K streaming on Netflix are 15 Mbps. Not allowing 4K goes a long way in keeping congestion down.
