Oh Boy !!!! Maybe that's why I have not seen anything maybe it's all done , must have been santa's little helpers...

 

I doubt they finished all the sites but I have a feeling they have quite a bit done though. Maybe 20%

Just something to do while we wait on a few sites to come online. Jacksonville is a hard city to cover but the coverage is going to be great once CDMA800 comes online.

Why do all you Jacksonville residents think it is so hard to cover the city with 1900mhz? You have any idea how much rural coverage sprint has using that same freq? You guys aren't that special. Mama lied... lol

No Hills in Jacksonville to speak off so that's certainly one advantage... Hopefully when I get back to town next weekend, I'll see my 4G indicator on in town in spots....

Refresh my ailing memory... what was the timeframe when Jacksonville was supposed to start turning on the LTE locations?

It was supposed to be November, but the Ospreys delayed deployment until October. So we're a little behind. Jax is schedule to launch by December. But we'll see.

Hi I'm in Jacksonville also we've been keeping a watch on this site. Robert said that Jacksonville has an update coming this week. We keep all the Jacksonville market discussions in the Jacksonville market thread.

Well, I left for a total of 2 days and came back after the carrier I went to wouldn't penetrate the buildings where I needed my phone to work. After reading the forums and seeing exactly what sprint is planning to do I'm not going anywhere because sprint has big plans for the future and for the price you can't beat it.

See anything? I see a problem its a huge nest on the tower and birds living there. Sprint said this was a problem to rolling out to some markets. I love animals but it needs to move there are plenty of trees in this town but it had to choose a tower lol. This is the tower near College of Central Florida in Ocala, Florida right by I-75. Also it does have a eHRPD signal since around October 5 but that's the whole city.

Marion County may not require a permit for switching our equipment for an existing facility. It varies by jurisdiction.

We need a different picture - it's too hard to tell. The Sprint panel will have RRUs sticking out of the back of the panel. This means you'll see boxes on the backside of it.

There will be a Panhandle thread as soon as someone creates one to talk about The Panhandle market. Which covers the Lake City to Tallahassee corridor.

Panama City westward to the Louisiana state line is the Gulf Coast market. Including Pensacola, Mobile and Biloxi/Gulfport.

I spotted another tower that I suspect to have nv upgrades on i295 near the Lem turner Walmart just as you pass the dunn ave exit.

None of the sites that I've identified are not active. They aren't even blocking connections or sending out enhanced 3g signals but I went back by the Busch Dr tower because I was at the sams club cycled airplane mode and still nothing. Maybe they are waiting to turn on all the completed sites all at once and not one by one like some of the other markets.

      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.
