  1. Indeed, it was just a matter of trying two more times until I got a nice lady who was more than eager to give me whatever I wanted, which is what Sprint really needs at this point. *cough* In any case, my N5 just rebooted with B41 enabled, so we'll see how that goes!
  2. When did it become nearly impossible to request your MSL? Two reps so far have said they can't give it to me because my line is under contract, and one just said I had to talk to tech support because it's a technical code. If they're trying to keep the MSL so people can't unlock their phones and go to another network or some technically-incorrect reason, all they're doing is pushing me to ETF and get the f- out. All I want to do is to enable B41. Is there some secret handshake that I need to use?
  3. An LTE tower lit up in the South Lake Union area: http://www.sensorly.com/map/4G/US/USA/Sprint/lte_310sprint#q=98109 Speeds have been... less than encouraging, though. The best I've been able to muster so far was about 3.6Mbit up, 2.1 Mbit down. The speeds jump around a lot, the signal is a bit weak, and most speed tests are well under 1Mbit to Seattle servers which can easily do 100Mbit+ speed tests. Bandwidth isn't everything, and the latency is generally good - about 60-90ms - but it's really not looking great for Seattle proper so far.
  4. In other threads it has been discussed that NV is being deployed from the edge of a city inward. Is a pattern used for the towers at smaller towns or along the interstate as well? Not that I'm anxious for my Western Wisconsin town to get some NV upgrades...
  5. I can't wait for the Eau Claire area to get the NV treatment. I don't even care about LTE as much as the backhaul and signal improvements. LTE is just a bonus.
