  1. There will probably be a press release of some sort, followed by a carrier update on your device. Then, the feature should show up to be toggled on/off.
  2. Got my best speedtest of all time on that site a few years ago. 106Mbps IIRC.
  3. Actually, it looks like Delaware is finally filled in with LTE after the last map update. Next time I'm down there I'm excited to try it out down 13 past Dover.
  4. My friend raves about T-Mobile in DE. He would get LTE down to Felton without issue, never drops to 4G. Fast around the air force base, and seems to have good coverage even out in farm country. From personal experience, T-Mobile has been killing Sprint in Delaware for years.

    Official Magic Box discussion thread

    The point of the Magic Box isn't to bring 30Mbps into homes (where 99% of people have Wi-Fi anyways), it's to fill the inside of a home or business with full LTE for the ability to message and call once VoLTE hits. My home gets 1-5Mbps on Magic Box as well, but my basement has full signal and is a completely usable location for anything my iPhone can do. Youtube, Facebook, iMessage...etc. Phones would drop to 3G or 1x prior to installing the MB.

    Sprint to Begin VoLTE Soft Launch in September

    Great news. I wonder if this will come with a subsequent final bump of B26 power levels to absolutely ensure the voice footprint is as close to 1x as it can get. It's good to see that NY and Delaware are absent from the soft launch, as they are definitely not ready yet. Sprint must know this, and is hopefully taking measures to get these markets up to snuff before finishing the VoLTE rollout.

    Calling 911 experiences while roaming?

    So if I'm in the woods next to a T-Mobile only site on a new iPhone, and my Sprint device shows "No Service," it will attempt the call over T-Mobile?

    Charter Introduces Spectrum Mobile

    Same - I plan on being a Spectrum internet customer by the end of September and this would be great if they did iPhone/BYOD. I wonder if it's intentionally limited now to slow adoption.

    Official Magic Box discussion thread

    I've taken a peek inside a Gen2 magic box and didn't see anything resembling good 'ol RJ-45 ethernet, but it may use ethernet over a proprietary ribbon cable of some sort. Unless someone has cracked into one deeper than I have and knows otherwise! 🙂

    Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    Really - that's good info! Sounds like they're using them as a backup plan....

    These were discontinued by Sprint. Third parties cannot transfer or sell them, as Sprint technically owns each one in the wild.

    Xperia XZ2 Compact

    Low chance it will arrive on Sprint without B25 support, unfortunately.

    3G Shutdown

    An unannounced 3G shutdown would definitely cause problems for a lot of customers, as outdated as they may be!

    New Verizon MVNO

    "Blurry mess" is hugely exaggerated. 480p is completely adequate on my iPhone 7 - most people will probably never know the difference. I just set Youtube to 480p and it looks crisp, I can barely tell the difference between 1080p and 480p.

    Sprint & T-Mobile Roaming Agreement

    Roaming is only for when there is no native coverage at all from your carrier.

    Sprint & T-Mobile Roaming Agreement

    AFAIK, PRL tells the phone what it can roam on regardless of the technology used.
  18. It's kind of funny seeing the other 3 carriers on the big tower, then little Sprint off to the right. The picture speaks volumes. :-) Hey, we're trying!!
  19. Wow, nice find. This isn't marked anywhere, not even as a future site... And it must be a full-build if it's B26. Interesting!! It looks like you were pretty close, were there any towers nearby?

    iPhone 8, 8+, X announced

    If anyone installs the 11.4 public beta, let us know if the carrier updates to a version later than 32.0.

    Happy birthday

    I hope your birthday is within 1% as good as last year's. Happy birthday!
  22. A ground mount B25-only site near Endicott is spitting out 10x10 now as well. Sweet! Looks like it’s everywhere.
  23. 3Mhz won't affect coverage at all, right? Just max speeds?

    Official Airave 3 LTE / S1000 NSC Thread

    Crossposting from Reddit.... Cliff's notes: Gf's brother called to exchange his Airave 3 LTE last night and was informed that Sprint discontinued it on March 5th 2018. They are encouraging customers to use Wi-Fi calling instead. Is this true? EDIT: It's true! No more Airave 3. This leaves a notable gap before VoLTE is enabled, but shouldn't be much of an issue if you have a modern device this Fall. (Wi-Fi calling/VoLTE should eliminate the need for CDMA)
  25. I think the whole Binghamton market now has 10x10 B25 enabled on full builds. Pulled down a nice 40+Mbps speedtest in Endwell, NY last night on a B25/26 only site. This is new as of the last week or two. Once the GMOs are upgraded to full-builds (should be this year if Sprint sticks to their timeline) then we will have B26 on every site. Most of NY is covered in GMO sites along the highways. They did an amazing job converting these all to B25 LTE in the last six months though, it was a very quick transition once they started. We can finally say that most of NYS is LTE now.
