  1. Thanks for the heads up on the October update. It's out for the Note 20 Ultra as well.
  2. Sept 1st Update is out for Note20 devices. Kinda surprising since the previous update was 10 days ago.
  3. Sept. 1 security updates is out
  4. Dang it, just did a road trip and none of that will count. 😁
  5. N20U and got the update today as well. Pretty hefty at 1350MB.
  6. Example of capacity, speed tests are now in the 750s when they used to be in the 60s.
  7. The tower in the Hollywood district got the full suite (2/12/41/66/71). This is a much needed upgrade improving capacity and range in the area, expanding into some notable weak spots.
  8. Starting to see more and more mentions of n25and n66 in local permits:
  9. TMobile continues their trend of keeping and updating absurd towers. SE02656A (18324 151st Ave, Woodinville, WA) received the full suite of upgrades including B41/n41. That site is horribly located, serving almost nobody (it is heavily geographically shadowed). Also, I just saw this permit for Kirkland. It appears they are keeping the Sprint mini-macro site at the top of 85th. This is along with the previously mentioned site across the 405. I fully expected this mini-macro site to get decommissioned because T-Mobile serves that area pretty well already. https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/WIR21-00494/Kirkland Speaking of the site across thr 405, I believe this permit is for said site: https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/WIR21-00477/Kirkland
  10. FYI the Evergreen hospital n41 panels are live. They do a great job of covering I405, I was able to maintain a B41 connection to that tower almost all the way down to Kirkland exit 18.
  11. Quite accurate if not conservative in the Metro Seattle area. In fact I know of two recent B41/n41 towers that aren't on the map.
  12. I saw a permit for it in rural Washington a few months back. I also believe one or two people have seen n66 on Reddit.
  13. I noticed yesterday that T-Mobile upgraded the n41 panel on a local tower from an AAHF to an AEHC. I am quite surprised they updated that tower so quickly, since it was just upgraded to n41 in Sept. of last year. This allowed them to expand the n41 carrier from 60MHz to 100MHz. Not sure why since the tower speeds are backhaul limited.
  14. A couple of interesting new permits I came across in Kirkland: First one: https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/PUB21-04351/Kirkland This one has been returned to T-Mobile for correction and resubmission. That being said, first time I have seen a permit for an outright decommission of a Sprint site rather than a conversion. Second one: https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/WIR21-00397/Kirkland Looks like they are finally going to upgrade the Kirkland Urban. It really surprised me that they didn't upgrade this site sooner. The density in that area, especially as Google and Tableu return to the office, is going to be extremely high. It could easily use n41 if not mmWave density to serve the area. The latter is especially true since it has loads of open outdoor spaces.
