Went to apple today to fix a button issue on my phone only to get a brand new one but then I noticed some network issues at my house that usually never occur. I gave up trying ##UPDATE# a million times and called.

 

The man informed me that my area, including most of Michigan but especially, what he could see, all of Kalamazoo, MI was preparing and receiving some prep work tonight for the "4G LTE Network Vision Upgrade"... It will be interesting to see the new maps come in.... This man said he worked closely with the network management and engineer team too.

Just got word that 2 Network Vision sites in West Michigan went live yesterday. One in Byron Center and the other in Holland. Not sure if LTE is live, but they are NV sites.

Who or what is the source? Can you provide addresses or location for the towers so that they can be marked on the maps?

 

I will be in Byron Center a week from today and will try to validate.

 

Edit In: Looks like there is only one tower in Byron Center, but many in the Holland area

Rob, if we have the tower ID for the Holland location, can the "relative" address be posted in this thread so people can try and Sensorly it up?

I have not been contacted about the Holland site. I don't know anything about it except what's been posted here. If I knew which site and had corroboration, I would mark it In Progress in our maps.

Is LTE turned on or still just 3G?

The LTE is complete at the site. We just are awaiting confirmation from the field from a member that it is operating.

I didn't figure out the Holland tower location until after I left the area.

 

Here's a photo of the Byron Center tower. No 4G signal for me, though :(

You posted that an hour and a half after I left my home on a mission! So I was relying on your previous post on the matter from 18 hours and 11 minutes prior!

Oh well, I still had fun and left some cool pics and a write up of my day of tower touring in the Premier forum. But it would have been better if I knew where I was going in Holland, went by 2 sites, just not the right ones.

I can tell you all, this is indeed the tower in Byron Center, MI. I had Breakfast in the McDonald's right underneath it this morning. It was not serving up LTE as grimloch stated, but the equipment is up there! It's hard to see in the photo posted here. I did get a bigger and more zoomed shot that I posted in the Premier forum, if Robert tells me it is OK, I will post it here.

 

Also, I had the same problem as you grimloch, as you can see by my post above. Went to a couple sites in Holland, just not the right one! Holland isn't a big town, but it does cover more than just a few blocks!

You can post the photos in this thread, just do not reference the Site IDs or Sponsor info in this public thread.

Ok guys, Robert gave me the green light, so here are the pics of the tower in Byron Center, MI sporting some really great looking Sprint NV bling! These are large files, larger than full screen on a decent desktop monitor, so I put them as links so people on phones and slow connections don't have to wait for load times.

Like I mentioned earlier, it wasn't giving out any LTE service, but the goods are there, so hopefully it won't be much longer!

I drove past two West Michigan sites today that had crews at, and up on the towers. Several trucks around and it looked like Sprint panel sections from what I've gathered Sprints panels look like....

 

One in downtown Kalamazoo on the east side..

 

..and another off of I-94 (I saw work last week as well) closer to Battle Creek.

 

No pics, as I was driving but I would LOVE to see new maps! Hopefully a lot more GR and KZOO, LAN sites start coming up! Michigan was supposed to originally launch around March, we'll see...

I retract my earlier post, driving home from work and saw a tower being upgraded. NV panels are freaking huge.

 

Talked to a worker, said two other crews were working on Lansing towers and they had done six in Grand Rapids.
