    UK Roaming experience?

    using a GS9 in London now. Spent the $25 for a week of high speed data. 5 days in and I'm almost at 2GB so for high data usage its better to go this way than keep open world. The main network for Sprint is O2. I think I connected to Vodafone once so far. I do have problems connecting once in a while and dropping to HSPA. Speeds are slow but I think this is due to not having all the bands on the GS9 and not having CA for the Bands I have. Haven't gone past 15Mbps download. I also brought my Essential phone and put an EE sim card in. they are known as the biggest and fastest LTE network. They use band 7 which is also 2600mhz and when i connect to that and/or CA I've seen speed over 100mbps. on the glaxy on O2 I haven't seen faster than 15mbps

    i've still noticed not all sites have 10x10 on the second carrier. Especially in Long Island. I'' have keep a look out since I am not on B25 to often.

    This should help the congestion issues in the surrounding area when games are going on. And it was probably much cheaper than a DAS

    Do you have SCP screen shots. Curious how that displays MIMO Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    crazy how small these things are! tower companies want to charge more for the weight but these antennas are all in one solutions and are much smaller.

    Not as high as I thought but I guess it's really for capacity during peak times. I wonder how these will compare to the 4 or 5 carrier B41 sites Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Interesting location. I'm going to try and make it out there this weekend but it's no so accessible. Now I have an excuse to go back to Mill basin deliSent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Just a few mins ago 33rd and 3rd Ave on a full sprint site. I honestly think sprint is the best in Manhattan. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Very possible this is why my speeds increase. its crazy that in the middle of the day in such a busy area I can reach speeds of 100Mbps.

    Anyone know if the Empire State Building has a DAS in it? I noticed a really strong B25 10x10 signal inside of it. Almost to strong to be from a Macro Site. The 1X signal also has the BSL note that says "Empire State Building" I noticed around the same time the speeds from the Macro site by my office one block away almost doubled in speeds. I would max out at 50Mbps but now I've seen 100Mbps. I average 40 to 70 now. Before its was 20 to 40. Its a old clear site. I guess it could be a 3rd Carrier but I've never seen 3xCA in the debug menu. When these Clear sites got a 3rd carrier are they able to do 3x CA or are they still stuck with 2xCA?

    Any idea what the max speed is for 3xCA B41 with the current config and 256QAM and 2x2? and what it will be once they turn on 4x4? i recall the max being around 330 mbps with 64QAM about 110 per a 20mhz carrier.

    Is it possible the engineering screen on the GS9 can be wrong. I've only seen 64QAM displayed during data sessions

    hopefully some of those 7000 strand mounts are also in the Westchester area. I have a feeling more than few of them are in Long Island.

    Any idea how density is being increased up north? Are they doing more light post MMs? I would think with Sprint existing towers and all of the clear only sites they would have pretty good density like Manhattan.
