He obviously was confusing Band 41 and called it Band 45. People make mistakes. That doesn't mean he was trying to pull one over on you. Holy moly.

Sorry if this has been asked before but is the signal strength a tower transmits constant?  I get that internet speeds will fluctuation when there is less or more traffic but what i never understood is the fluctuation of signal strength one receives on their phones.  is there a correlation with the two?

Not sure what i can gleam from that thread other than SNR fluctuation cause interference with tower signal.

Just thought more people would see your question in that thread.

Band 25, 26, and 41 in Kerman and even though I live in town, it's rare to get any LTE signal. And when you do get band 26 it only lasts a few seconds and then drops back to 3G if you go indoors. Pretty disappointed, looks like I'll be stuck in a dead zone.

Has it improved any since you posted this? 

 

I was wondering if it hasn't been optimized or something. Oddly Sprint's maps haven't been updated to show LTE (they were pretty good at including new LTE areas quickly before). I was in Kerman yesterday and was surprised I couldn't get LTE inside the Valley Food shopping center (across McDonalds). I was expecting better from 800MHz LTE. Hopefully it's an optimization quirk can be easily tuned.

I keep getting 1x800 but it stays around for like a day and then goes away for a few days and then it's back. Anyone have ideas why?

nope wish 1X800 & B26 would get all over Kern Co yet with Santa Barbara making it hard for So Cal to get the upgrades we want & need hard to say

Any news on full spark capability in Fresno?

 

I'm only aware of one site with B41 gear in Fresno, and that one is a roof top setup. The others are going to be hard because they weren't able to keep the old rackspace from the old, pre-NV gear, so now they have to re-engineer everything all over again. I'd give it another 6 months at least.

Ive seen B41 around 3 places in fresno (downtown, near shaw and blackstone, and river park) also its on in kerman. But they only seems to be testing it or something because it will come on and be on for a few and than it goes away.

Anyone notice recently in fresno that Download speeds are pretty bad? im not sure if its because Im trying out a new phone (went from Galaxy S5 to HTC M9) or its just the service. Speed test are really weak and uploads are faster than downloads at times which never happened before.

That was frequently the case for me. There's not enough bandwidth (b41 will greatly help, but it's going to be a while) and there's not enough sites.
