  1. Found 3 more Sprint Airspan small cells (Florin/Freeport, downtown, & loaves and fishes area) and the first noted Clearwire 2.5 conversion to Sprint triband 800/1.9/2.5 in Elk Grove!
  2. It's been live since the 2nd week of October. Turn it on and leave it be for about a hour and it will provision automatically.

    You can pop on chat or call mb tech support to ask them to activate it back on your account. Takes approximately half a hour. My gen 3 and Gen 2 had some shenanigans where both was somehow not provisioned. Both are back activated now. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    Also the donor 2.5 connection is a 2x2 MIMO 2T2R mini mac 2.5. Presumably I'd experience much more drastic improvements if say connected to an 8T8R or M-MIMO unit running 4x4 mimo / 256qam and 3 B41 carriers.

    It was pretty much the difference of 1 mbps vs ~2 mbps. Hence I have it plugged into the router which is fed by a FTTH connection that is ready to go when Sprint / Airspan sends that OTA firmware. 😉

    Terrible photos incoming. Did a 1-1 remove and replace of a AU545 gen 1(2?). 545 was ordered and installed when publicly released on a 2nd floor bedroom window facing the nearest Sprint site. Crappy Pic. Installed Gen 3 AU587 in the center of the house on the 2nd floor loft next to the router nowhere near a window. Ethernet is plugged in but LTE backhaul preferred until Sprint / Airspan sends out a OTA firmware that enables working ethernet or wifi backhaul. Very impressive.

    It is broken. Known issue. Fix TBD.

    Holy moly. The new 4T8R relay is legit.

    Yeah... Depends on the individual it seems.

    If they do it in band UE Relay like in East Iowa regions then yes. If not then it may*** potentially work only with ETH or WiFi BH but who knows at this point since it's so new.

    Potentially... Though not guaranteed since it supports 10 / 20 MHz IBW while the Airave 4 does 5/10/20 MHz. The smallest EBS/BRS block is 6 MHz wide. Doesn't hurt to try though! Yeah it depends on the agent I guess. Some people have got agents that were able to send it out in a few minutes while others got agents that would not. Mixed results really. Needs the GEN3 MB and I'm unsure on the status of the CDMA module at this time. May take awhile since only in the past week have they began sending G3 MBs out.
