  1. Are there criteria which determine whether UL B41 CA is active and that disable HPUE? Is this determined by the network or on the device itself? Or, will a device like the iPhone XS always have HPUE enabled, which disables UL B41 CA?
  2. Wasn’t there an issue that you couldn’t have 2 UL CA if you had HPUE enabled or am I misunderstanding this?
  3. Yeah, the specs for the Modem say it supports 2CA for the UL: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/wireless-products/mobile-communications/xmm-7560-brief.html Curious what’s up here...
  4. Sprint did pretty well on Average User Speeds according to this test report by P3: http://www.p3-group.com/en/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/P3-Report_US_Speed.pdf “Again, Verizon leads the benchmark with an average user speed of 5.3 Mbit/s. Sprint shows only slightly lower user speeds with an average of 5.2 Mbit/s. This is remarkable since Sprint’s Network Top Speed was only a little more than half of what the Verizon network showed. Obviously, consumers on Sprint face less limitations in their real life smartphone usage than users in the other networks. The average user speed with T-Mobile is 4.6 Mbit/s, while AT&T is slowest with still competitive 4.3 Mbit/s.” Background article: https://www.rcrwireless.com/20180911/test-and-measurement/verizon-tops-p3-network-speed-analysis-but-sprint-is-a-surprise-second
  5. What’s different about these handsets to enable them to support CA for UL, while the iPhone XS doesn’t?
  6. Thanks! Will “current” HPUE devices be compatible with an updated FCC transmit power restriction or will this require a new handset?
  7. Oh man... 🙁 I guess something to look forward to for next year.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Yeah. This seems like a very thorough review by knowledgeable people. However... the answers either matter or they don’t. It’s the way the town runs. I forgot to add 27 to that list... I wonder what Sprint is claiming it can accomplish on its own without a merger.

    Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Wow... I would especially like to see the answers to questions 8, 16, 17, 24, 26, 28 and 38 on the Sprint document. FCC don’t play...
  10. Total Equipment Protection (TEP) has been rebranded and updated as “Sprint Complete”: http://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-complete-provides-worry-free-wireless-protection-with-enhanced-service-and-repair-and-personalized-on-demand-tech-support.htm Some pretty substantial changes to the program.
