Since the announcement of the new US/Mexico 800 MHz reband plan as shown in the pic below, the FCC has made an announcement for the 800 MHz band reconfiguration to begin on August 23, 2013 and end on February 23, 2016. What is disappointing is that this 800 MHz band reconfiguration effort will take 30 months!!!! Well at least we know now that the 800 MHz band along Mexico is in the process of being freed up so that markets like San Diego, Tucson, and the south parts of Orange County in 2016 will be able to use CDMA and LTE at 800 MHz. From the new 800 MHz band plan it appears that 5.5 x 5.5 MHz will be freed up in the ESMR band which means that these markets will likely see a 1x CDMA carrier and a 3x3 LTE carrier. Hopefully Sprint is working with the FCC and Canada to work out a 800 MHz band plan so that Sprint can use 800 MHz there for CDMA and LTE. http://www.fcc.gov/document/commencement-800-mhz-band-reconfiguration-along-mexico-border
Good morning everyone, We've been experiencing some interesting problems in San Diego over the last few weeks - persistent voice and data outages all over the county. SprintCommunity.com's customer-care reps have attributed the problem to OEM issues and have acknowledged the county-wide nature of the outages here, here, here and here. This is a typical response: For me in particular, it's eight days and counting, and there's still one tower down near my home. My GNex and ZING seem to handle it OK, pulling in a 4G or 3G signal depending upon what's up or down (although this morning our service is voice-only). My wife's GS3, on the other hand, reboots frequently unless I disable LTE in settings. San Diego is in the IBEZ area and uses Samsung equipment, and is approaching 4G completion. Out of nothing more than curiosity, does anyone have an idea what kinds of problems could be causing voice and data outages across so many towers? Happy Friday! John
