  1. For starters.. from knowing areas well Sprint need at least 12 co locations to begin with.. lucky TMO and Verizon already have ton of sites for Sprint to do so Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  2. Any changes on the calling.. have you dropped calls .. or has it been solid ? Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    At this point everyone is trying to do whatever it takes to get this merger to get approved... There is a proposed re-brand of the metro pcs brand happening on September 23rd .. new name new plans and all .. seems tmo is adding the finishing touches to get this approved Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  5. After further testing by @terrell ... 2xca upload cuts out when you hit 100DBM .. which at that point it would seem that hpue will kick in again Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  6. Got one more question.. I have a few friends that are using Sprint in market's that are part of the soft launch for volte.. are reporting lots of drops to 1x now and toggling airplane mode isn't helping much. Could that be because of the volte launch ? Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  7. Interesting, so Intel shows the modem to be capable of 5xca downlink, but on Sprint it can only make use of 4xca downlink.. Btw, Tim are you able to link to to your post about the new pixels not supporting 2xca upload and limited mimo streams Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  8. No those will not support it and will have limited Mimo streams . Google did the same last year not surprised Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  9. Your speaking about something totally different if I'm understanding correctly.. your talking about certain tech that Intel uses and hasn't paid Qualcomm it's royalties for it Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  10. If the modem support the technology... And Sprint has it enabled on the network side .. I don't see a reason as to why it won't work Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  11. The Intel modem In the I phone xs is upload CA ready out the box ... So,I don't think Sprint would have it disabled Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  12. Sprint showing more improvmemts on root... Boston speed Improvements Washington DC speed Improvements Grand rapids Michigan speed Disregard Fresno CA..... Sprint made absolutely no improvmemts there Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    I'm sure there's more to it .. pressure from Sprint and softbank investors for one... Also, Masa was feeling the heat/pressure from his own board members.. Sprint wasn't meant to go at it alone. As soon as Masa purchased his percentage he was supposed to merge them with TMO that didn't happen... So, this whole time Sprint posting better number etc starving the network to post profits was all to make this merger possible Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    My market ( El Paso,tx) is a perfect example: from internal upper management.. TMO has one of their biggest market share in the country here and that demand has slowed the network down tremendously... Even, Sprint is faster here now with far less sites then tmo.. So, that tells me TMO need more spectrum and lot more macro towers/small cells which in return will spike their Network investment by about 20% as per the article just to stay above float it seems as there growth still seems to be tremendous Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    And those average are only showing up until 2021 ... I'm sure by 2024 Sprint can push those average even higher Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Ya, I don't know if this is a accurate analysis.. TMO needing 38 thousand more tower to carry their demand ..that would put them ahead of Verizon in term of total tower I believe ... But it does show that Sprint has better chance going into 5G Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  17. So according to Sprint care (who knows how accurate this is lol).. Sprint will give it a shot on a nationwide volte launch middle of next year Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  18. Yes coming soon on the 21st of September.. Sprint has managed to upgrade a high percentage of their current tower grid here in 5 months.. More sites are being upgraded that I still haven't checked on yet.. and the mall sites looks to be getting massive Mimo as that site serves an indoor and outdoor mall that are across the street from each other.. will upload pics as soon as I can get to that side of town (Ericsson market btw ) ..band 26 is up on all those sites which should be turned on any month now.. for Sprint to have a shot at volte with just 60 macro towers a tough task ? I'll have to check and see where drops to 3G happen and evaluate based on that, but more sites are needed Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  19. Spotted another band 41/26 upgrade a bit out side of El Paso county lines along I-10.. lot of work going on here Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Again, the facts are there that Sprint has under spent on the network in the last 3 years.. but now that they are spending we are seeing markets catch up to par not within one year,two years we are seeing it happen within 3 to 6 months and they are upgrading the sites quick to tri band.. San Diego is another example Sprint is right on par with all the carriers and once they get the higher Uplink going they will also be in the low to mid 90s.. so I think at this point of network shouldn't be a concern anymore as Sprint has shown that they will Implement small cells and add Towers where needed.. the question now is can they gained enough subscribers per quarter to recoup the network Investments that they are making over the next three years in case the merger doesn't get approvedAlso, 4 x 4 Mimo from what I have seen Sprint is incorporating it on all of these upgrades so at the end it's just a flip of a switch on the software side to turn that on so I don't think that'll be a big issue Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    It was more to get support for the merger then anything Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  22. If anyone is planning on switching to Sprint... Sprint is lowering their buyout program down to $450 starting on September 21st Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  23. My predictions are Q2 next year .. Once sprint gets massive mimo more widespread and 4x4 mimo more widespread. Sprint should win both. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  24. Another upgrade in progress.. and another team is working on a site that already has been upgraded Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    I don't think it's the resources anymore at this point.. Sprint has enough spectrum to where they won't need as many tower to bring capacity to certain areas.. I think it's SoftBank not fully 100% confident/behind Sprint to fully go at it alone...and Sprint brand image.. I think that's about it really .. the network will tag along piece by piece.. imo Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
