Network Vision/LTE - Colorado Market (Denver/Colo Springs/Fort Collins/Pueblo/Grand Jct)

Recommended Posts

Sensorly shows one LTE hit in southern Denver. I have yet to see any eHRPD towers and nothing in CO has been scheduled for upgrades as far as I know. Certainly this is not legit?

I wouldn't think much about it unless i saw a few spots.

Yeah, that must be a GPS error. The Colorado market just finished design. Seems almost impossible for it to be starting. Unless it is like the Cupertino anomaly in the South Bay market. Where a few cells were intentionally deployed, but the market hasn't started. But that was for Apple.

After further review...it is on a Sprint Call Center. I was told about 2-3 months ago that they were going to start installing LTE in all Sprint buildings. So this is not surprising at all.

 

I'm going to be watching to see if the Albuquerque call center gets LTE any time soon!

 

Craig, the next time you are in Centennial, you should drive by and see if you get a LTE signal at the front door.

We may have to start raising bail funds for when Robert is arrested for loitering outside the Albuquerque call center.

 

;)

Try in the parking lot. If you can't get it there. walk up to the building and try. And if all else fails, try to walk in and ask to buy a phone. :lol:

I rarely get down there, but I will certainly have it in the back of my mind to check it out when I find myself out there again.

 

Would any sites nearby be eHRDP, or since this is a sole LTE site would there be no upgrades to neighboring sites?

I would be very surprised to see eHRPD. Since it is an in-building LTE deployment, it probably is an island not attempting to pass LTE data on to the macro network.

It seems like they are doing something, my 3g speeds have improved dramatically, I get 1.2-2.0 mbps consistent just outside of downtown denver at the Broadway Lightrail station, and far better speeds in littleton then I used to. Before I was averaging .1-.2 mbps.(on my 4s) Now its almost never less then .4Mbps. I wonder if it's the phone or first signs of NV in the area. I am happy that my iTunes match doesn't timeout every 20 seconds but streams as seemlessly as pandora with a 256/kbps bit rate

 

I'll have to test this on my ladys 4s to see if it is isolated to the new phone or actual network improvements

So not only is there no proposed 4G LTE rollout date for Denver, now I get no 4G signal at all downtown, where I used to get a full 5 bar signal. Anyone else having this problem?

 

Man, Sprint is going from bad to worse..... I sure hope they are putting in a new tower and get 4G LTE rolled out soon, or I may have to jump ship. I will definitely miss the unlimited data, but that can't last for much longer I imagine.

It is likely a temporary WiMax outage.

Well, WiMax/'4G' has been out all week downtown. How long is a 'temporary outage' supposed to last before it becomes an 'extended outage'?

 

I've been a loyal Sprint customer for years, but my confidence is waning...

Have you reported it and opened a ticket? If so, what was the cause cited? Do you know if other users are having the same problem? You will get a lot farther dealing with Sprint than writing on our boards about your waning support for Sprint.

A dollar says they just want to complain and not spend any time trying to let Sprint know about it. It's easier that way, after all.

 

In other news . . . Any reason why eHRPD would be turned off temporarily after it's been deployed? It could have been a bug with RF Signal Tracker app, but every tower in the west/NW metro Denver suburbs I was connected to this morning had reverted to EVDO. Two hours later, they had been switched back to eHRPD. Found it kind of curious.

This happens often when eHRPD first deploys in a market. It will likely happen again. Don't know the cause. Probably related to the cores.

I was at the denver airport and drove to colo springs and i had ehrpd all the way down how long till it will get Lte then??

 

I certainly hope you are joking... If not, eHRPD deployment has very little to do with the LTE deployment timeline. eHRPD just needs to be deployed prior to LTE for there to be a smooth handoff. So there is no set time between eHRPD occurance and LTE. It could be weeks or many months.

    • It would be a lot more juicy without the redactions. Great.
    • That doc is sooo juicy with all the tea.  That Sprint 5G map is a mess but its hitting cities that are well off for Sprint.
    • Any thoughts, experience, or recommendations regarding LG G7 ThinQ on the Sprint network? https://www.sprint.com/en/landings/lg/lg-g7.html
    • So much juicy info in the Public Interest Statement that T-Mobile and Sprint put together for the FCC. Page 23 and 24 have some maps that show the projected extent of 5G coverage on both networks in 2024 if they were to go at it alone. Beware, the document is over 600 pages long so if anyone has free time and wants to go through the whole thing, please do! https://ecfsapi.fcc.gov/file/10618281006240/Public Interest Statement and Appendices A-J (Public Redacted) .pdf I'll keep editing as I find more cool stuff.   Edits: I'm still reading but something to note is that on their own, it is expected that by 2021, Sprint will cover more POP's in high-speed 5G than T-Mobile. So while T-Mobile would have greater overall coverage by a long shot, Sprint would  be capable of providing 153 Million POPs with speeds greater than 150Mbps compared to only 10 Million from T-Mobile.
