  1. That’s pretty interesting! I had no idea it would be that easy to do that. Smart strategy. In the DC metropolitan area, it seems much more stringent. @Trip and @grapkoski are the permit experts around here. 😀
  2. Yes, but why did they bother installing the 8T8R at this site in the first place if it wound up only being there a month before swapping it for Massive MIMO equipment? I’d imagine they had to go through two permit processes with the time and associated costs?
  3. Wow. Why did they bother doing the 8T8R replacement if it was only going to be there for a month? I hope that 8T8R gear has been repurposed for another site?

  8. T-Mobile acknowledges its patronage of Trump’s Washington hotel increased sharply after announcement of merger with Sprint “T-Mobile’s patronage of President Trump’s Washington hotel increased sharply after the announcement of its merger with its Sprint last April, with executives spending about $195,000 at the property since then, the company told congressional Democrats in a letter last month.” “Before news of the megadeal between rival companies broke on April 29, 2018, the company said, only two top officials from T-Mobile had ever stayed at Trump’s hotel, with one overnight stay each in August 2017.” It’s the way things get done around here...
  9. https://newsroom.sprint.com/digital-transformation-update-leveraging-ai-and-analytics-to-move-at-speed-market.htm “We are leveraging AI through AI-assisted chats, where nearly 30 percent of chats are handled by virtual agents — up from only 4 percent just a few months ago.” 💬🤖 😮
  10. For a preliminary launch, it’s a good start. Assuming Capex isn’t the obvious limiting factor here, Sprint may be limited by available 5G equipment, by regulatory/permitting process or by work crew availability.
