  1. While most towers are near instant, one local tower took two to three weeks to turn on B41 and over a month to turn on n41.
  2. After over a month, they finally turned on n41 on this tower. Previously I could connect to B41 but could never get an n41 signal.
  3. I hate to say it but blame your NIMBY neighbors. Permits are a lot easier/quicker in bad areas because there is less objection.
  4. I'm very curious what their metric is for including cities in this list. Woodinville, Bothell, Kirkland, and Redmond all have n41 towers but aren't listed. Meanwhile, Monroe has a single n41 tower and is listed.
  5. A number of towers lost 5MHz on B25 in eastside Seattle. Strangely, it is not all/most towers even. These towers were 15MHz at 1907.5 and 1987.5 previously and are now 10MHz at 1910 and 1990MHz. I expect T-Mobile intends to expand B2 to 20MHz in the area.
  6. Found a third n41 along that same powerline. A new T-Mobile B41/n41 signal has appeared at the 405/522 interchange. I discovered that the powerline tower at 47.7798189, -122.1750665 has been upgraded to B41/n41. It is broadcasting 40MHz of B41 and 60MHz of n41. I was able to pull around 400 Mbps from it when I was close by.
  7. It sounds like how it is for all 5G phones. My Samsung Note 20 Ultra is basically a T-Mobile phone. Unless I force the bands, I am more or less permanently on T-Mobile.
  8. Went by there today, it is broadcasting two 20MHz B41 carriers: 2538MHz and 2558MHz. The 60MHz n41 carrier is at 2597MHz. Tmobiles plan for the 2.5GHz spectrum makes far more sense now. Irrespective of bandwidth: 2508MHz to 2568MHz: TMobile B41 2568MHz to 2628MHz: TMobile n41 2630MHz to 2690MHz: Sprint B41. This gives them freedom to reallocate either B41 portion to make a contiguous 120MHz n41 allocation.
  9. The powerline tower at Kirkland/Rose Hill (47.67565, -122.17482) got upgraded to n41 as well. I noticed n41 on the 405 in an area where I have never seen it before and eventually found the source (there aren't a lot of TMobile towers in that area). That tower location makes huge sense if they intend to keep Sprints 2.5GHz towers online (either as B41 or n41) because it is located in a gap in Sprints B41 coverage. Interestingly, it seems to be 60 MHz n41 BW, rather than 40MHz I saw at Canyon Park. I will go back in the next few days to check the n41 frequency and to see if it is broadcasti
  10. Is this the Bridle Trails powerline tower that was being worked on this weekend?
  11. If you consider the recent Samsung FCC filings, I think the B41/n41 roll out is going to occur faster than expected. Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk
  12. The 64t64r M-MIMO panel just had a similar change as well, adding 40, 50, and 80 Mhz carriers. Considering these were the backbone of Sprint 5G in Samsung markets, there are a decent number of them around. It doesn't make sense for Samsung to file to the FCC unless T-Mobile intended to keep them. https://fccid.io/A3LMTP02P-41A/Letter/A3LMTP02P-41A-C2PC-Letter-4898464 This could also explain why T-Mobile hasn't removed any of the Samsung 64t64r units in my area. Despite them being at ultra-high density areas. Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk
  13. I wonder if Tmobile changed their mind and plan to keep some of the Sprint B41 equipment Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk
  14. Confirmed n41, though it's not live yet. Sent from my SM-N986U using Tapatalk
  15. Does anyone know if that is Seattle Seattle or Metro Seattle?
