    Is this good for the company?
  1. Staying up in Idyllwild the for the next few days at my parents' cabin and I'm pleasantly surprised which is about a mile east of the town center. I'm getting useable Sprint data and good voice coverage due to T-Mobile band 4 roaming. The town center of Idyllwild has always had native Sprint service and over there, it's always had good voice & data. At the cabin previously, I would never get useable data or good voice coverage at all since it would drop to Sprint 1xRTT, Verizon 1xRTT or Verizon 3G. While the latency isn't great, I'm not complaining, I'm not gaming on my phone and still streams video & music just fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Any word if Band 26 has arrived in the San Diego market yet? I noticed on the Los Angeles market thread there are reports of B26 being live there. Or are we still being held back due to I.B.E Z? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What's the latest carrier Update?

    Assuming carrier update and bundle are the same thing, I'm currently on 34.0. I'm trying to think if it's normal to get a completed update notification once the update has been applied or not. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Got a carrier update notice yesterday? Is it updated to 34.0 now? I only ask because I've looked up online see a couple of mentions of 34.1 mentions. Any idea what this latest carrier update is supposed to do? Anyways I'm using an iPhone 7 Plus running on iOS 12.1 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    We'll I'd guess I'll keep the current Magic Box then. Has anyone figured out the advantages the next generation Magic Box has that the current one doesn't. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    That would be awesome if the next generation Magic Box had voice support. That would help me out at my cabin. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Sprint still has some work to do in ABQ as speeds were quite slow of Frontier Restaurant, but at Isotopes Park, the speeds on Sprint's network were fantastic when I was there this most recent Wednesday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. It's been a couple of years since I've been to Ruidoso, last time I was there Sprint's service was lacking. Have any improvements been made there? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ordered a Sprint Magic Box a few weeks ago for my parents vacation cabin in Idyllwild, CA. Cabin sits just barely outside of LTE range (even in outdoors). Not going to lie, I was very skeptical of this magic box, after about 20-30 minutes, followed by toggling on and off airplane mode, & PRL update and I was very happy with the after results. Download speed has increased 25 fold & upload speed has increased 5 fold. I placed the unit inside the detached wooden garage and thus far, it's working great! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    LTE back up and running at the Carlsbad Costco Food Court with satisfactory speeds again, 9Mbps down/10Mbps up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I was out in the Coachella Valley a tad over 2 weeks ago & service and data speeds were acceptable in much of the area with the exception of Desert Hot Spring. I dunno if Sprint's towers are overloaded but the data speeds there are lacking. Anyone else notice this when they go to DHS? First screenshot is LTE & The second screenshot is 3G.

    Last streetlight adjacent to westbound Aero Drive, prior to Kearney Villa Rd, I spotted this. Is this Sprint's equipment? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It's hard to believe a tad more than 5 years ago, Sprint didn't have any LTE in San Diego. Still more work to be done on Sprint's end but much better than at this time 5 years ago. I'm not mistaken, I think the other spot where LTE started in San Diego was in the South Bay. I found this on my Facebook memories popup today.
