Looks like Sprint filed three B41 permits in Clearwater too...

Its ok no band 41 so speeds are not the greatest but its usable in most areas I went to there.

Band41 is alive and well in Sarasota. The tower at Bahia Vista and Beneva has it as well as down by Clark and various other locations

Im glad its looking good down there. Might be down there this summer. The last time I was there was Christmas Eve 2014 and Sprint was really slow.

Some updates from the Tampa area. In the City, Mobilitie has just applied for another RoW permit, but no details are available yet. Of the four B41 mini macro permits pulled, one is up for final inspection today. If we have any lurkers in New Tampa, please drive by 16200 Bruce B Downs Blvd (the fire station) to see if it's live. No inspection on the other three.

 

Of the three Clearwater permits, one is up for inspection tomorrow. So there is some tangible progress it seems!

Looks like Mobilitie's February was a mere registration, but last week they applied for new RoW poles. This time in much better locations and the plans are actually being reviewed/approved unlike their last attempt. One of the locations is literally next to the main Sprint store in the area.

 

If you search for Mobilitie here you will see the permit and all of the drawings.

Sadly, Sprint let two of the City of Tampa permits expire, but did complete work on the other two. I just don't get why you file for permits and then don't follow through.

 

Mobilitie is continuing to work its way through the process and filed revised plans right before the 4th of July holiday. Hopefully, they will get the green light soon.

I may be at risk of looking crazy as the only participant in this thread, but I thought it would be good to keep a record of changes in case we get more Tampa-based participants.

One of the expired permits (BLD-17-0449236) was reissued and work completed in the last couple of weeks. Final inspection is due tomorrow. So far no activity on the other permit, but based on the quick turnaround it looks like they aren't letting permits expire for no reason anymore.  :D

My mom is like 40 mins north Tampa I'm getting anxiety about here staying. Talk about 140 mph winds and  praying to God she will be ok.

I hope  everyone in Floridia (including your mom) will make it though this hurricane.

Mobilitie has filed their 48 hour work notice for the six sites they seek to install on public RoW. Sadly, the work won't be complete until the end of March. Hoping the schedule holds!

    • Just to chime in, I find the Magic Box very useful in my home because we have home internet that goes out at least once a week, and therefore need a backup plan for those times when the internet is out. It gives me reliable internet access when the home ISP goes down. Plus, when connected to a UPS, I also have usable internet for news and emergency updates in the event of a power outage, which happens often during storms. I go from being on 1 bar of B26 to 4 bars of B41, with the box being connected to a B41 site that I otherwise don't have access to in or around my home.
      Also a small benefit is having full signal all the time without my device constantly switching between weak B26 and 3G. The battery life savings really add up. Plus being able to make VoLTE phone calls from my home when VoLTE is rolled out will be nice too. All of these are things that WiFi cannot do. Sure, a lot of these problems have solutions or workarounds, all of which require more time, effort and, more importantly, money, than a box that you simply connect to power and never touch again. It almost works like... magic?    -Anthony
    • I'm curious to hear if anyone has called 911 while using their Sprint phone while roaming.

      I know you can call 911 even when there are no reported signal bars on the phone display, if the phone's technology supports using another carrier.

      But what about using Verizon's 700 Mhz VoLTE and T-Mobile's 700 VoLTE bands, the latest iPhones support these voice/bands, but Sprint doesn't yet.

      Does that mean calling 911 will never pick up a VoLTE signal on these bands?
    • Are you using the real VoLTE or the Voip VoLTE Beta on an Android phone?

      VoLTE isn't being enabled for all users for a few months, this is for markets away from the North/South borders, later for those areas.
