  1. That's a long lines tower, unless you've seen new equipment added to it.
  2. Which part of ND do you live in? Fargo? If so they've got a boat load of spectrum out that way. Pretty much identical to what we have in Duluth. B2: 10x10 MHz B4: 20x20 MHz B5: 12.5x12.5 MHz B12: 10x10 MHz B14: 10x10 MHz B30: 10x10 MHz B66: 10x10 MHz Haven't seen any evidence of 29 being deployed out that way but we've got some sites with B29.
  3. I agree, but that's how it is. You're at the very edge of the PGW and SGW.
  4. First and foremost, there are 0 signs of deprioritization in that speedtest. None. Secondly, your pings will always be high in North Dakota. Their core is in Chicago, which is about 550 miles away (I'm assuming you're in Fargo, which could be way off base). T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon all have a network core in Minneapolis. Thirdly, I visited Fargo in December. AT&T's performance was nothing short of fantastic. I averaged about 75 down and 20 up across the region, with about 250 tests run, all over the place. The kicker was my ping was about 90ms on average. If/when AT&T adds a core in Minneapolis, things will change for ping performance there. I think they are opposed because they don't own any wireline infrastructure down there. Here in Duluth, my pings average about 35 ms... with a 35 ms jitter. So 70ms. Hope this helps.
  5. Lots of cobwebs in this thread. Anyone familiar know if/when Sprint will have 41 on all macros in Duluth?
  6. Take it from a Duluth native, heading up to Two Harbors, Gooseberry, Palisade Head, etc. Sprint is nonexistent and T-Mobile is awful as well. Super patchy and unoptimized... it will say you're connected to LTE but won't load. This happened on my iPhone XS, Galaxy S8+, and a LG G7. AT&T is really the only way to go that far north.
  7. I am referring to this, if anyone is wondering: https://twitter.com/lynnlaaa/status/1134162727168086018
  8. Why would Sprint want to show off how awful their LTE network is in actual use? Having 1 network run at 3 Mbps which 99.99% of your customers use seems pretty embarrassing to me.
  9. T-Mobile is garbage in the city. Tests failed all over the place. I have them as eSIM right now. Verizon isn’t a bad option either but will cost more than AT&T and still isn’t quite as good. Yeah, the U1 S9 has B14. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. It’s on in the rural areas. A 10 MHz channel and a 5 MHz channel. Saw it at Jay Cooke and up in Eveleth. Nothing in the city yet. You might want to activate an AT&T prepaid sim if you’re going to be up here longer than a few days. AWS is a 20 MHz carrier now and there’s lots of B14 and 66. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Nothing I’ve seen beyond what’s already there. Mall area is lacking it... where other carriers have tons of spectrum deployed and Verizon is even building small cells. Good luck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Yeah, near the borders some of their B26 channels might be 3 MHz. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Yeah, a Spectrum or Comcast merger would be ideal in my eyes. Deep pockets with generally good wireline networks. Perfect for backhaul to small cells. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
