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

Recommended Posts

I don’t know about Jacksonville but Ocala and Gainesville have been seeing tons of b41 upgrades the past two months. Most seem to be the 10 port 2500/800 set up. With others being 8 port 2500mhz only.

I don’t know if in Jax they are doing to 2.5/800 setups but they are definitely still putting 2.5 on sites around town.
Just sucks my LTE connectivity went to shit with this latest iOS update. Taking longer to connect to sites and hangs on to 3G way longer than it should.

Sure is hard to be a iphone user on Sprint. No calling plus, hpue, 4x4 mimo support. Sprint is in the middle of adding the 10th LTE Plus site in Ocala. Just think we only had 2 LTE Plus towers in April. They are not playing around with 8 upgrades in the last 60 days.

If Ocala is getting all of these upgrades then I know Gainesville is getting some.

Was inside of Walgreens just now, and I noticed that my signal was unusually stronger than normal. Did I field test and got B41 with UARFCN 39874. This particular Walgreens does have a Sprint express booth inside if that info helps any. Just wondering if this is B41 signal came from a small cell or possibly magic box? Any info would be great. 

If they haven't yet they will most likely install a mini macro sites in most every Walgreens.  They recently turned on sites at the Walgreens in Lake City and Like Oak.  Attached is the screenshot that I took from the Lake City store today.  The nearby Macro site has not been upgraded to B41 yet

That’s nice! I’m originally from Live Oak so that’s great news. I’m also in Lake City from time to time. This is awesome.

What does Sprint have a partnership with Walgreens?

Yes, they recently opened  8 Express Stores in Walgreens in Gainesville, and from I have been told by current employees ( I used to work for Sprint Corp in Gainesville) they have a large scope agreement with Walgreens and will be expanding the Express stores and installing network equipment in most stores.

Still waiting for them to add more sites up here, but in the last 3-4 months they have obtained permits to add B41 on all the sites in Columbia County

      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.
