Network Vision/LTE - Jacksonville Market (including Gainesville/St. Augustine/Ocala)

Recommended Posts

That's exactly why they are using Mini-Macros to push B41 coverage. Much, much cheaper than a full 8T8R upgrade.

I often criticized Sprint for using mini macros and not going full steam with 8t8r. My perception has changed. I guess Sprint has to do what they can to get subscribers and upgrade the network at the same time.

Eventually. With the current capex it is taking a really long time though. Network vision was done faster than b41 upgrades and that was way more work and money. The problem is Sprint is still paying for Network vision 1.0 so they didn't fund 2.0 as fast as they should have.

I wish Sprint would have actually let Vzw buy B41. I think it would have been cheaper for Sprint to build out Capacity if they would have bought the B4 vzw uses instead

Is it possible that an upgrade to my lowly 5×5 B25 (only site within reach) is being delayed because it's going to make the jump to B41 with 8T8R? :Fingers-crossed:

New 8t8r sighting at the River City Marketplace near the airport. I don't know when the equipment was installed but it's online. It's one of the areas I frequent that had terrible speeds. Hopefully this band 41 addition helps.

Speed test?

7.38down/1.56up I'm thinking it's low because it's a high traffic area.

At least it's usable.

After riding around town. There's more band 41 site than I initially thought. Seems like Sprint came back around and added Band 41 to a lot of sites.

Any chance that includes Orlando suburbs?

I can't check right now, but here's a picture of Band 41 from Sprint:446c23df31a38454d209f925a82b4df6.jpg

The light yellow uncannily conforms to my city's boundaries.

Yeah it's not that great here but it's only because the biggest cities have it and even then places like Tallahassee still don't have but a few. Florida is a big state to cover though. LTE coverage on a hole is good just needs capacity which they are doing and faster than usual too.

Doesn't Sprint realize they have to keep up with network demand?

I definitely agree with you. Consistency even where I live is not too good. But I'm surprised with South Florida though. Especially the Jacksonville Market it seems so good at first.

Hopefully they have COWS ready to be deployed statewide but they didn't have much time to prepare even though they say they are. Probably marketing fluff but we will see.

I'm just curious to see if they will actually improve. Speeds definitely need to have a lot of improvement down there.

I have backup networks if Sprint can handle it. I don't know who is going to hold up the best but it will be interesting. I am really prepared. 12 cases of bottled water, 8 jugs, lost count of canned goods, 2 cases of Gatorade, two 30,000 mah battery chargers, flash lights etc.

I have AT&T also as a backup just in case Hurricane Jose hits where I live. I pray for everybody safety in Florida including my sister who lives in the Fort Myers area.

I started to evacuate but I looked at the traffic on the roads. There's too much traffic. Plus by the time the storm reaches the Jax area it'll be a Cat 1 storm. I think I can survive. I also have an AT&T backup line and an AT&T iPad.

      I was in the zip codes of 33993 and 33991 today and did some speed tests on speedtest.net
      I got speeds of about .8 Mbps with peek rates of 1 Mbps. I tried to upload pictures but the uploader said files were to large but even though they were below the maximum file size

      Hello,
       
      I've been following the network.sprint.com site and just in the past year in South Florida there have been over 700+ upgrades to towers in my area (Miami/Fort Lauderdale) with another like 400+ planned! I've been taking screen grabs and adding them up. I know we are on the second tier LTE launch list but could they be doing the upgrades now? I mean I have noticed the speed on my 3G shoot up from unbearable to quite fast in the past 6 months or so. Also the speed of 3G on my new EVO LTE is about double+ of that on my OG EVO! So are these just a lot of 3G upgrades, normal maintenance, Network Vision or new LTE cabinets? When I choose other cities from the drop-down list they have a quarter of the updates that the towers in my area are getting except for say New York, lol. I've tried 4G LTE on my new EVO LTE with no luck. I remember that before the 4G Wimax launch down here in some areas I could get Wimax on one or two towers in certain locations so I thought they might test like last time. Thanks for any answers in advance.

    • Existing sites have all been upgraded, but the network around here was not designed to blanket LTE.  I recognize that the coverage maps often indicate that coverage is acceptable, but that just isn't the case.   Attaching a pic below that has a blue square.  Illinois Route 47.  Its not an interstate, but still a busy state highway.  This is an area where placement of one additional tower would ensure contiguous LTE coverage from Dwight down through Forrest.  It is equally as bad as you travel farther south on Route 47 south of Forrest.  Phones hang onto LTE for dear life, but drop down to 1x and 3g as the town of Strawn is approached.  From Strawn south nearly all the way to Gibson City is 3G or 1x. Site spacing is great for 1x voice coverage, but its just not there for full-time LTE coverage (no matter which band is being discussed.) Every time I'm in one of these areas, I'm reporting the issues in the Sprint Zone.  At one point in time Sprint was working with Illinois Valley Cellular through the Rural Roaming Partner deal - but I have yet to see any indication of connecting to IVC Equipment.  The partnership started in 2014, and it is now nearing the end of 2017, and I am fairly confident that IVC has not held up their end of the deal in moving their network to LTE.  All of that being said, it is not a big deal at this moment.  It will be a big deal at the point in time that a decision is made to shutter CDMA, if the holes are not fixed.     edit:  relevant to this thread - even a Sprint/Tmo merger would not fix this problem without filling in gaps.  
    • I don't think so... the radio in the S8 just performs way better in low signal based on my tests. My coworker did similar tests on a TMO V30 and has similar results as well. It might be a software issue with the phone...

    • It is on the expansion map that was released recently... when I'm not sure. As far as I know it's still 3G up there... outside Marquette they added some unlimited US Cellular roaming based on the latest map update.

    • Completely wrong thread or market but it looks like sprint plans to bring LTE to the upper peninsula aka Marquette MI. Can anyone confirms this ? I see some marginal activity in the Sensorly app

    • Anything new to report about band 26 for SoCal or is this all a pipe dream hoping it gets cleared for rollout before 2027 ?
