Band 25 2nd carrier is live and well in Chula Vista. Wish it was live in Pahrump, it would sure speed the network up there.

That's a great signal strength.  Were you standing right by the tower?

On way to work @ stop light. The intersection is next to a Sprint site.

Too bad they can't CA B25 and B41 together. That'd be awesome.

It would be cool if they could do B25+B25 CA and aggregate this 10x10 carrier with the 5x5 PCS G Block carrier. According to Günther, B25 CA is in the works so we'll hopefully see it rolled out soon.

Ok. Just to make sure. We have LTE 800 in San Diego in the IBEZ?

Can confirm we do in Encinitas. Just noticed it today, after nearly 2 months of horrible service in the area. I wonder if I'll see this at my house in Oceanside. Service has been horrendous there to.

No no no.

 

SCP AND OTHER APPS ARE MISIDENTIFYING DUE TO 11 GCI ending.

 

IT'S 10X10 B25.

Just got a B26 LTE 800 reading at Black Angus in Escondido. Quickly went to B41. Odd.

We now know that the GCI ending in 11 in an ALU market indicated a 10x10 B25 carrier. It is not B26.

Any idea what's in the pipe for 2017 in SD? Are we still stuck with 2xCA or did we get included in the "100 market" 3xCA rollout?? Just switched from VZW due to cost & interested in the build.

Havent see 3XCA on B41 yet. Sprint been busy pushing 10x10 B25. No new sites or existing work going on since early last year. If your in an area with B41, consider it good as no new known B41 activities. Hopefully soon we will see some more work to get all sites with B41.

I'm in Golden Hill and apparently a B41 area, which is great because it's better than what I was getting w/ VZW. But working in Gaslamp definitely presents challenges. Lots of random slow data spots. Hoping for improvement ????????

Sprint is not too dense downtown. We will need small cells or new sites to get better indoor coverage. We can only hope CAPEX will flow through San Diego, much needed upgrades throughout the county.

Many places that my S7 could not hold on weak B25 5mhz, is now holding on B25 10mhz and usable. Some improvements, seeing much less 3G past few weeks. Hopefully full steam B41 on all sites and small cells fill in.

 

Yesterday @ Gaslamp Downtown for lunch, Tmobile pushing 100mbps, VZ pushing 50Mbps, Sprint unusable 2CA on B41. We need small cells asap.

We'll see. I almost feel like Softbank's throwing in the towel in light of the T-Mobile merger rumors resurfacing.

 

I suppose one benefit of a T-Mobile merger is that unrestricted LTE roaming between the two would likely be turned on immediately after the deal closed so legacy Sprint customers would be able to take advantage of T-Mobile towers and vice versa. Whether that'll make up for increased prices and ultimately less competition is another question.

Mobilitie, LLC
Mobilitie proposes to locate new wireless facilities on existing street lights and new utility poles. The construction will involve attaching an Omni directional antenna, UE Relay, and Remote Radio Head with a GPS antenna along with all needed auxiliary equipment needed to an existing street light and new utility poles. The particular areas chosen are known to be particularly dense with users and these attachments will help alleviate the traffic and provide better coverage to the citizens of San Diego County. Please see attached for propagation maps that demonstrate the areas that our attachments will provide coverage and alleviation.

      hey guys i am due for a upgrade today....i am curious on the opinions of others of what phone is a great phone... any opinions are welcome !
    • By Febby
      I notice a lot of post regarding the markets in IL,FL,TX,PA,NYC.... but how about about the Los Angeles market? I THINK it was samsung doing the set up for the L.A market? Not sure though.... I'm not a sponsor member of the site so I can't really check... if I had a job I'd most definitely donate!
       
      Couple of months ago the local towers were all down and being upgraded to NV I assume since Larry from Howard forums said there was NV work being done my zip code. The speeds were better for a bit but now they are awful again.
       
      Can anyone (most preferred Robert) make a comment on if there is any LTE activity near 90255 area code?
       
      Thanks, great site by the way... I'm a Lurker.

      Just a bit of insight. I live near UMD in Duluth, MN. Sprint's signal is clearly much 'dirtier' with a 1.0 SNR compared to T-Mobile's 20.4 SNR. I don't have a screenshot from the same time, but I get about a 22 to 29 SNR with T. I know that AT&T uses RRU's but I'm not too sure about Sprint or T-Mobile. Also, I didn't even know they had L2500 where I live, but I force checked it on my Samsung S7 (AT&T).

      Karma Go Hotspot Discussion & User Thread

      Since we don't have an official spot for this little hotspot, I'd like to make one... meet the Karma Go hotspot. Running off the Sprint LTE network, the Go is a Spark/LTE Enhanced enabled, tri-band hotspot.
       
      Currently it runs for $149. Down below in post #2 you'll find all the information that I've compiled about Go.
       
      For anyone who has never heard of Karma, check out the Karma Go. 
          If you'd like to purchase the Karma, PM me and I can give you my referral code for an extra $10 off your purchase!
      Be sure to watch for sales to get the Go at $99 and if you add my code in, $89! 
       
       
      Current Sale(s):
       
      Not at this time... Check back soon!

      Did you know that with many Sprint (Uniband) LTE Android devices, the signal strength indicator at the top does not show your LTE signal strength? Even if 4G or LTE is displayed next to it?
       
      That's right!  This signal displayed here is your 1x (voice signal), and it is not your 3G EVDO signal strength, nor your LTE signal strength.  Regardless of whether it says 3G or 4G next to it. This is the cause of a lot of confusion.  Also, third party apps like NetMonitor do not show accurate LTE signal strengths. They also only show the 1x signal strength, even though they may reference being connected to LTE.
      The purpose of this thread is to help educate the masses, because many people think they have a strong LTE signal, when in fact they do not. And then they are unhappy, thinking that Sprint LTE is really slow, even with a strong signal. LTE performance is very signal strength dependent. So, when you have a weak signal, you can expect much slower than peak results.
       
      There is only one accurate way to get your LTE signal strength, and that is from your LTE Engineering screen in your Debug menu. And we will discuss the different ways to get that below.
       
      ...In HTC, Motorola & LG Sprint LTE devices:
      Go in to your phone app, and dial ##DEBUG# Select LTE Engineering Go down to RSRP. The number under RSRP shown in dBm is your LTE signal strength. ...In Samsung Sprint LTE devices:
      Go in to your phone app, and dial ##DEBUG# Enter 777468 for your lock code Select LTE Engineering Go down to RSRP. The number next to RSRP shown in dBm is your LTE signal strength. ...In the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 5:
      Go in to your phone app, and dial *#*#DEBUG#*#* Enter 777468 for your lock code Select LTE Engineering Go down to RSRP. The number next to RSRP shown in dBm is your LTE signal strength. The LTE Signal Strength Scale:
       
      Now you have determined your actual LTE signal strength in dBms your device is receiving, you can use the following scale below to determine its strength:
      Better than -88dBm RSRP is a strong signal Between -89dBm and -96dBm is a very good signal Between -97dBm and -105dBm is good Between -106dBm and -112dBm is fair Worse than -113dBm RSRP is poor Feel free to link people to this thread for explanation. Hopefully, this will clear up some confusion out there!

    • There are positives to be had if there is a merger, for sure.  I don't believe a merger is bad in every way. And if it happens, there will be things that I will like. I just believe, at this time, all things considered, I'd prefer they'd be separate.  Just my opinion, and I respect the opinions of others points as well.  Because I considered them, and they are marked in the 'pro' column for me. I like where Sprint is going now more than ever in it's past.  And Sprint's road to "5G" is less capital intensive than the others because of spectrum and equipment deployed. 
    • I was also under the impression that site would be in the town of Wall. And the closest planned site to Wall in my maps is in New Underwood... Wish we had some eyes out there.
    • I don't think a merger will help consumers much.  TMobile capex is $5b.  Sprint might spend $5b. A merged company still could have $10b, but it will take years and a LOT of money to consolidate assets. There is going to be a lot of work, and a lot of money that will not go into making the network better, but making 2 networks 1. If you want to see a combined company make ProjectFi your carrier. Just look at some recent mergers.  Charter is doing horrible. AT&T and DirecTV brought no value but just increased TV bills. Large acquisitions tend not to benefit the customers but more so investors and those on the board who get millions for making a deal happen. As an investor I can see the excitement, but not so much a customer.
    • The total percent of subscribers graph shows everything you need to know about the current US wireless industry.  Verizon has ~35%, AT&T has ~35%, and all the other competitors are competing for the final 25% to 30%.  This also means that 70% to 75% of all the profits are split between AT&T and Verizon which gives them the money to keep deploying and keeps them with much larger, stronger networks.  If AT&T and Verizon can each afford to spend $10 billion+ on their networks each year, no smaller competitor can hope to keep up.
    • I see the purple on the Minuteman Site. I've been to it many sites. Very friendly horse next to it. It's a well established AT&T Guyed Wire Site.  It's possible this might be AT&T LTE Roaming pollution on Sensorly.  Especially given the strength of the report. I was expecting the Sprint site in this area to be in the town site of Wall itself.  I guess it's possible Sprint chose this site instead.  If I still lived in the area, I'd go check it out. But alas..
