    Hi

    I live in northern Flushing (a very densely populated area) and sometimes I experience network issues (mostly dropped phone calls).

    Got a zip and intersection and cross street? I’ll have a T-Mobile tech look into it

    Cell phones with Massive MU-MIMO that support Band 46, 252 & 255 with small cells is the fastest fixed T-Mobile can use to increase network capacity. T-Mobile has announced they will deploy 28,000 small cells but again only Samsung (maybe LG) makes phones at this time that supports these LAA/LTE-U bands. With Cell phones that support small cells and MU-MINO will give you a private non-shared data stream where SU-MIMO is shared data.

    " Simply 2×2, 4×4 and 8×8 MIMO in LTE scales up in 5G to massive MIMO implementations. MIMO represents a 50% to 5x increase in network capacity, depending on whether it is deployed in an FDD or TDD context, according to Paul Challoner of Ericsson, speaking at the recent Competitive Carriers Association conference."

    True but only really important to people who live or work in densely populated urban areas. Folks in the 'burbs can get along fine with lower tech devices.

    That's not entirely true. Many of the burbs here in the N.Y. metro are NIMBY. Cell sites can be spaced one to two miles apart. These are densely populated suburbs that many would probably consider urban, even though they're not. Without 4x4 mimo, 256/64QAM, and 3x-CA, you're in for an unpleasant experience regardless of carrier. And yes, they're blocking small cells and metro cells as well.

    NYC "burbs" are not exactly the "burbs" I had in mind, but if the sites are miles apart, then bands-12 & 71 become more important.

    So suburbs of Huntsville or Montgomery, Alabama? haha. I see where you are going with it.

    Might want to inform T-Mobile support instead of HoFo.

    AT&T's commercial 4G network, with LAA-LTE.

    Suburbs of New Orleans (e.g. Slidell), Atlanta (Tucker), Cleveland (Chagrin Falls), etc. Places where most homes are single-family and sit on lots significantly larger than the house.

So many people in NY have switched to T-Mobile and I think the network cannot handle all the devices for internet. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?
    I actually had that issue when i tried T-Mobile here in Manhattan. I would go out to grab lunch (midtown east) and no page would load at all even though like you stated, I had full bars. I had to either toggle the phone into airplane mode or power cycle the phone all together and i kinda got it to work that way. I felt T-Mobile could not keep up with the demand. I stayed with Verizon for that reason and a couple other things.

    I’m assuming this is near Roosevelt field mall? That whole area is really congested and with all the holiday shoppers, my phone is sorta useless as well. Having a S8 is probably your best hope of having any chance of using your phone.

    Same happened to my friend in Times Square while my Verizon has 4G with 37Mbit download.

    Besides the text outage the other day, speeds have actually improved for me.

    And like someone mentioned that whole area by Roosevelt field mall is a problem for all carriers.. I have trouble there with my Postpaid AT&T and Metro line.

    I wonder if in such a situation, roaming onto AT&T would make it tolerable?
