  1. by Jeff Foster Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Friday, April 20, 2012 - 11:31 AM MDT Is there a "spectrum shortage?" Those two words send shivers down the spines of wireless industry executives. New services demand ever more spectrum, and, the story goes, there simply isn't enough spectrum available. An Internet search engine will easily find hundreds of thousands of links to the term "spectrum shortage." Many claim that it will be the downfall of America. The dwindling availability of a finite resource that can't be seen or touched threatens to possibly disrupt the mobile lifestyle
  2. I just saw a news article that the United States government is investigating AT&T and Verizon for wireless collusion. I'm going to post a link below. Let's please keep this discussion on track. https://mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKBN1HR2Z8
  3. Yikes! T-Mobile shouldn't have spoken so soon about deploying 5G nationwide before VZW and AT&T. It'll only be a dozen cities by year end but nonetheless, I wouldn't be surprised if AT&T fast-tracked this roll out just to spite T-Mobile. I'm expecting a similar announcement from VZW very soon. Source: AT&T announces plans to start rolling out a true 5G network by the end of 2018
  4. Hate to bring up another carrier on here, but I am on AT&T right now and do plan to switch to sprint as soon as my contract is up. is there a forum similar to this but relating to the AT&T network?
  5. IBEZ will be solved SOONER, rather than later. Which is a good thing. I would have liked for SoftBank to join the fight, because EVERYONE knows that their roaming rates are going to be abysmal with Sprint customers traveling to Mexico. Is this a raw deal? Your thoughts? Via GigaOM: https://gigaom.com/2015/01/26/att-to-buy-nextel-mexico-continuing-continental-expansion/
  6. Am I the only one that likes to look at Verizon's coverage comparison tool. I think it gives a good idea of a carrier's generalized coverage as far as those cities that have been announced. However, it takes a while for it to get updated. I look at Verizon's map and think, no one will ever build an LTE network of that size. When I look at T-Mobile, I see a spotty, spread out network. AT&T is also spotty with a few highways covered here and there. Sprint seems to be more put together as in even if it is spotty, they are in blobs rather than random remote areas. I've also found a few pla
  7. The next step in shutting down former Alltel in Georgia is underway: http://www.phonescoop.com/articles/article.php?a=15007 Of note, AT&T's commitment to keep CDMA live in these markets expires June 15, 2015; I'd be surprised if they keep it on a day longer, which means a fallback to 1x on Verizon for Sprint customers roaming off the interstates and a few other corridors in south Georgia. The SouthernLINC RRPP buildout can't come soon enough...
  8. AT&T took the plunge. Let's see how far they can go with it and how it compares to the HD Voice offerings of Sprint and T-Mobile. [url="http://www.androidcentral.com/att-switches-hd-voice-small-test-markets-small-phone
  9. It's official: Google Fiber is coming to Austin. AT&T has also said that, provided they get the same incentives that Google does, they'll run gigabit as well. I trust AT&T about as far as I can throw one of their VRADs, but we'll see what happens between now and when Google connects its first customer, over a year from now.
  10. AT&T's LTE network impaired by salon's fluorescent light By Tammy Parker AT&T's (NYSE:T) cellular network has faced myriad challenges over the years, such as the overwhelming capacity crunch that hit when Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) first iPhone rolled out. But the latest threat to AT&T's network is particularly illuminating, because the problem is being caused by a common fluorescent light fixture. The fixture is located inside the Perfect Cuts Salon in a San Antonio, Texas, strip mall. By simply flicking the salon's lights on and off...
  11. "This is pretty incredible when you think about it: Verizon has instituted a system where I actually have incentives to not use its network." http://bgr.com/2013/09/27/verizon-att-lte-data-cap-criticism/
  12. Via FierceWireless: In their quest for more spectrum, this will be the fourth acquisition of a facilities-based carrier by AT&T this year, following Alltel (ATN), Leap, and Iowa's Long Lines. Given that they are shutting down the CDMA network, I hope they are not a Sprint roaming partner. I'm having trouble finding a coverage map for them.
  13. From GigaOM: Interesting excerpt from the AT&T public policy blog post: Details are thin on what that "software feature" is, or how it works to remove Ch. 51- 700 MHz B-block interference that the smaller carriers deny is even present. Also, if it's true that AT&T has been investing "considerable time" in modifying it's 700 MHz LTE equipment, you'd think they'd have tipped off Google (Nexus 5) or Apple (iPhone 5C/S) about that. Still, this seems like a step in the right direction toward LTE roaming, or at least a step away from further industry consolidation. Tele

  15. "So you could argue that SoftBank’s ability to smack down bigger rivals like NTT-DoCoMo and KDDI did not hinge on the one-time surprise attack it staged in 2007. SoftBank has been able to keep its bigger rivals on the defensive through half a decade, introducing a variety of new pricing and marketing strategies." "If SoftBank does acquire Sprint (S) and/or Clearwire (CLWR), the obvious U.S. analogs to NTT-DoCoMo would be AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ)." http://www.bgr.com/2012/10/12/softbank-sprint-acquisition-analysis/
  16. So as you cruise the internet at work and things are getting you down, just think you could be working at the Car Wash.
  17. AT&T is making it known that it is going to try to capitalize on Sprint's iDEN shutdown over the next year. http://www.att.com/gen/press-room?pid=22974&cdvn=news&newsarticleid=34695&mapcode=consumer|enterprise AJ
  18. I've seen various times around the site that Verizon's 700 Mhz LTE site spacing is rather large and they don't have it deployed on all the towers they have EVDO, whereas Sprint is going to deploy 800 Mhz LTE on most (I think I've seen 85%?) of their sites. Meaning for in-building coverage Sprint would have a better set-up. Has AT&T done the same thing as Verizon and used the fact that 700 has a large range and deployed it to just achieve coverage? I haven't really seen a lot of mention of AT&T's LTE on this site and was curious how Sprint's 800 Mhz will likely compare to theirs once co
  19. Came across a book on the History of Bell Labs. Jon Gertner's The Idea Factory, was an interesting read. Interesting to see how Bell Labs conceived the future, which is now the present. Book goes into the development of transistors, solar cells, RADAR, microwave communications, information theory, satellites, UNIX, CCDs, LASERs, lightguides and the list goes on and on. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/08/books/review/the-idea-factory-by-jon-gertner.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0 I had no idea how involved in the defense industry Ma Bell was with Sandia.
  20. "... there is no sales growth to be had from chasing new customers; all the upside is now in squeezing more money from existing subscribers." Article: http://bgr.com/2013/06/21/att-verizon-fees-analysis/ Presentation: http://www.chetansharma.com/usmarketupdateq12013.htm
  21. I have a question, outside of the data issue, Why is it that people refuse to be on sprint? I have seen people talk bad about Sprint more than T-Mobile.
  22. Making this thread for discussion about the new AT&T MVNO Aio Wireless. Curious to see what anybody has to say that's tried them. What kind of speeds you get (also pings), coverage (especially in larger buildings), and whatever else. Had a response from a person in another thread who said they got longer pings (100-200 ms) than normal for AT&T LTE (attributed it to a Aio proxy) so if anybody else has seen the same it would be interesting to know. Also if anyone has used both Aio (or AT&T) and Sprint LTE and can provide some comparison that'd be cool especially since this is a Sprin
  23. Came across this website today that compares customer complaints to all carriers and locations. You will learn that every company has issues and significant ones. It will also help those people who want to switch carriers to see what reviews the other companies got. I learned sprint in NYC is rated 2nd and of all four carriers and every carrier has dead zones. (Not a lot of reviews on site but sill some interesting info) Check it out and add any thoughts. http://www.cellreception.com/coverage/ Click on your city at the bottom of page..or put zip but i learned clicking on city works be
  24. So apparently the FCC just issued a ruling that on top of setting standards for boosters it also requires that they be OK'ed by the carriers. http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2013/02/fcc-orders-2m-people-to-power-down-cell-phone-signal-boosters/ Also allowed more bandwith on 5GHz for WIFI. Any thoughts?
