  1. T-Mobile & Sprint have had 2 years to plan the network integration. If they have not figured out what to do in each site down to the size screws to use I would be severely disappointed.
  2. T-Mobile has asked the FCC for a temporary authority to use Sprint's 2.5 GHz spectrum in advance of the merger close. They want to use it for 5G NR. https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-seeks-ok-to-use-2-5-ghz-philadelphia
  3. Holy crap, go Nokia: Nokia touted a new lab achievement over Sprint’s 2.5 GHz spectrum that boosted 5G capacity by up to four times through a software upgrade. The test included a software upgrade of E-UTRAN New Radio – Dual Connectivity (EN-DC) and Multi-User-MIMO (MU-MIMO) using Sprint’s mid-band 5G spectrum and Nokia’s AirScale solution to deliver 3 Gbps total downlink cell throughput, in what Nokia called a first. It showcased Nokia’s AirScale Dual Mode Massive MIMO for 5G and LTE, using a single radio unit for both LTE and 5G. The test also tapped commercial hotspot devices. Nokia said once its service is commercially available operators will be able to “vastly increase” network capacity through software updates to the base station, without the need to invest in more spectrum or require site visits to swap out hardware or transport. https://www.fiercewireless.com/5g/nokia-notches-5g-capacity-boost-via-software-upgrade
  4. Nothing weird or even interesting is happening to my service. Same ole shitty service inside my condo, great service outside of it. MB working fine.
  5. I have couple questions. When will Magic Boxes no longer be able to use B41 as backhaul? And when will they allow roaming to use the best connection whether T-Mobile or Sprint?
  6. Some people have seen change others like you and I have not. I am not going to lose a lot of sleep over it. OK maybe 10 minutes😂.
  7. Have a little patience. They will turn on roaming on April 1st.
  8. Not to be outdone, Verizon is also getting some help from Dish: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/verizon-latest-carrier-to-get-spectrum-boost
  9. What will they do with 47Ghz? The only thing they can do with it will be either wireless backhaul or fixed wireless.
  10. At the end of 3 years, T-Mobile will have about 85,000 sites, the same amount of Verizon & AT&T.
  11. Verizon only has 10x10 band 5 and 10x10 band 13. They do OK. T-Mobile will have 10x10Mhz band 71 (more in some markets, 5x5 Band 12 and 5x5 MHz band 26.
  12. Sprint is bringing 800Mhz. Dish can elect to buy Sprint's 800Mhz after 3 years. I don't know why you're freaking out about it.
