  1. Have you ever been down there? Sprint's small cell deployment is paltry compared to AT&T and Verizon's C-RAN deployments.
  2. That's a fraction of what AT&T and especially Verizon have deployed down there. Verizon is practically on every street corner.

    AT&T LTE and Network Discussion

    Yeah it is. T-Mobile’s widest channel is 10 MHz (AWS and PCS), Verizon has 15 MHz B4, but can go 20 MHz once they decide to attach the G block AWS-3 to it, and they also have J block (a 10 MHz block). Not used to seeing uploads this high so far north!

    AT&T LTE and Network Discussion

    AT&T widened their AWS from a 10x10 MHz channel (EARFCN 2100/66586) to a 20x20 MHz channel (EARFCN 2050/66536) after what I would guess is acquiring the A block license from Nsight in Duluth, MN. This happened Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

    Android Phone with Best Reception?

    Take a look at the G7 ThinQ. I've heard that recent LG phones (V30 and newer) have some very impressive RF performance, and the G7 is a 6 month old phone going for under $400 on Swappa.
  6. You don't drop to CDMA and carryover a VoLTE call. It goes from VoLTE to no service, and the call drops.
  7. I wish they announced a single name of 1 of these "225+ cities"... how is anyone supposed to know where to expect to see Gigabit LTE? I doubt they have the backhaul for 99% of these sites to see past 300.
  8. I'm curious about how much BRS/EBS spectrum Sprint holds where I live. The FCC spectrum dashboard no longer seems to be maintained... is there an easy data base to find this information?
  9. Can anybody confirm or deny cross carrier HD Voice with AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon?

    iPhone XS Thread

    I've had better performance in general on my Xs over my X on AT&T... does anyone know if UL CA is supported on any frequencies other than 41?
  11. I saw Verizon prepaid roam onto Sprint 1X in Duluth, MN in April of this year.

    Google Pixel 3 / Pixel 3 XL User Thread

    Yes it does.
  13. Responding to a few earlier posts, Sprint does have an Ookla server in Minneapolis and they were put on the Verizon neutral host iDAS at the MOA.
  14. It's about time. Hopefully lilotimz or wiwavelength/s4gru can answer, but with eHRPD, can calls hand off from LTE to CDMA? Has Sprint made any progress with this? I noticed that it was mentioned earlier but nobody really got a clear answer.

    Calling Plus (VoLTE "Lite")

    Someone here can probably explain this, but what exactly is preventing Sprint from doing full on VoLTE? Lack of macro density? Lack of coverage? Something in the core of their network? I remember years ago their excuse was lack of fallback to CDMA, but what's causing it today? Why can't they do a full scale VoLTE launch like Verizon did? Or at least a market-by-market launch like AT&T, where they know they have the LTE reliability and capacity?
