    This forum has devolved so badly. You used to be a decent poster, now you're getting in on the trolling too, just posting for the lulz. It seems fun. Maybe I should try it too.

    So you won't answer the question. Great. So apparently you're just full of hot air then.

    There comes a time when everyone realizes that they aren't a twelve-year-old on a playground. Well, I hope everyone does...

    Which has nothing to do with anything. The issue is that you won't answer the damn question.

    Please look at the forum rules, especially the section concerning what's called "thread crapping".

    I know you would like nothing but 64+ more comments on this particular non-subject by Tuesday, but it's not happening. Over and out, you got the last word. Or if you got the message, you simply won't continue.

    All I'm worried about (after the states lawsuit of course) is getting Band 41 up and running for Magenta customers.

    Shilo is right, tear down Sprint (name and all) as fast as humanly possible and let's get on with it.

    CAN'T WAIT!!!

    I think this can happen fairly quickly as additional LTE service. I'm not so sure about 5G. That may take a few years. There's a lot of those sites to decommission. Does anyone know if Sprint's band-41 mini-cells can be software upgraded to 5G NR?

    They could run two different B41 networks for a time if they needed to, since Sprint has a metric crapload of B41/n41 spectrum.

    T-Mobile service over Sprint towers?

    So several new pieces of info from this article:
    https://www.speedtest.net/insights/b...trum-coverage/

    1.) Sprint calls on Sprint Towers will begin to be routed through the T-Mobile Core rather than the Sprint Core (as was done with MetroPCS).
    2.) Modern Sprint handsets will receive an OTA update to enable access to the T-Mobile network from existing Sprint devices.
    3.) 11,000 Sprint Sites will be kept by the New T-Mobile to densify the Network.

    Also it looks like we will be seeing phones that aggregate low-band FDD and TDD:

    “To take advantage of the new T-Mobile’s spectrum and 5G network, smartphones must have the capability to aggregate both Sub-6 FDD and TDD (FR1) with mmWave (FR2), in addition to LTE.”

    Yes. That's part of their 5G. Don't forget TMO gets to keep and use 10,000 Sprint sites. The other person needs to realize that only the name Sprint is will be gone their employees like Marcelo become part of the T-Mobile team

    Some current devices do support 25+41 CA which is live for Sprint now. 26+41 is also supported but will not get to stay since TMobile has to give up B26. New devices will be Required for TMO bands and Sprint combos. Like 66+25+71 or 66+71+41 for example. Current phones can do 25+25 or 25+41+41. The S10 line up also supports B41+LAA which would be cool to see.
