  1. Just for kicks, I looked at a log copy from a few days ago. Filtering on the 311490 PLMN, I have 193 rows total. I have no rows for T-Mobile B71, but my LG G6 does not support Band 71. I have 10 rows for T-Mobile B12, eight of which were in western Maryland near Frostburg. The other two were momentary connections at the hospital near here and in New Jersey. - Trip
  2. The roaming restriction is based on first-hand experience. I have roamed on T-Mobile 600 and 700 before in select locations, but in many areas, I have never connected to T-Mobile 600 or 700, even when the alternative has been no service, and sometimes even while my T-Mobile phone is connected to 600 or 700. My impression is that in places where 600 and 700 are not loaded, they allow such roaming. In the places where it's under considerable demand, either due to high number of users or low density of sites, Sprint roaming appears restricted to AWS and PCS. - Trip
  3. LTE works. CDMA does not. Got it specifically for CDMA. - Trip
  4. I have never had a GPS lock on my parents' Airave. I've not had a chance to call Sprint to try to diagnose it, but the antenna is actually sitting on the outside of the window glass (inside the screen) and it still doesn't work. - Trip
  5. Yeah, Massive MIMO's been lighting up all over the place around here. - Trip
  6. Wait, they're launching it with "5G for Good" branding to build support for the merger, but won't launch it if the merger isn't closed by then? What? Those things seem like they're at odds with each other. - Trip
  7. Yeah, I thought I could get away with that, but it expired after a year. - Trip
  8. The problem with this example is that the Google Maps API is also heavily limited now. I had to switch my website over to Leaflet. So even what you've written so far would probably have to be rewritten. I've written code that does what we're discussing here in other projects, but the editing ability spread across multiple users in a friendly manner is where I run into problems. I've only ever written code that has one editor--myself. - Trip
  9. I've never used MapBox, but I'm probably more of a developer than you are, even if I also wouldn't call myself one. What kind of problems is it giving you? (We can take this to a PM if you want.) - Trip
  10. https://ecfsapi.fcc.gov/file/1104335023634/800 MHz Monthly Report for NOV 2019.pdf Five licensees left to reband. - Trip
  11. Yeah, I've seen a huge expansion of Massive MIMO. The original DC 5G area shown earlier in the year was basically from SW DC to Tysons. But I went to Baltimore over the weekend, and there's now Massive MIMO around much of the beltway, and then I spotted two Massive MIMO sites in the Baltimore market. There was also two more sites south of Woodbridge on I-95 the weekend before, one of which was in the Richmond market. - Trip
  12. I wonder how this would play into the DOJ settlement. https://www.foxbusiness.com/media/apollo-pitching-att If this comes to pass, does all the Dish spectrum--and the associated new fourth wireless company--end up with AT&T? Oops? - Trip
  13. Every 311-490 entry I have in my SCP log is T-Mobile roaming. - Trip
