Network Vision/LTE - Toledo Market (Toledo, Bowling Green, Findlay, Lima, Port Clition)

Recommended Posts

Had a touch of Lte today in rossford at intersection lime city and buck and at levis Commons in Perrysburg. Seems like testing since it came and went and not to mention 3g was not working at those locations.

For the past 4 days there have been people working on the tower. Two of the four they was working top to bottom and the other 2 they was working just at the bottom. Still hoping for something to happen in the next few days or into early march!

Well of cource lol but Buckeye cable internet at home is about my only sanity I have till it does come in Toledo. I'm not trying to fill peoples head with crap cus I've in the same boat as everyone else, but Ryan and I have been all around and to us it just seems like they could have these towers all complete by end of March going into April..but that's not with mother nature's wrath and our one or two crews working in Toledo. Trying to stay positive

They do supply backhaul for sprint not sure in exact sites

Thanks for finding this out for us much appreciated

 

Sounds like AT&T and Buckeye cable around Toledo and I think it's prob Century Link out toward the west for the most part I know that was the main internet provider when I lived In out west. Could be a few more but that's looking like the main ones.

Quick question...does our device prioritize an Lte connection over evdo? I have noticed after working in sylvania all day today that my phone would choose to connect to a Tower with Lte that had little to no signal strength over a full barred Evdo tower. I noticed that once I was just out of range for the Lte tower I switched to a full strength Evdo tower almost everytime. Which I noticed also affected call quality.

I really think it depends on your device. I know with my HTC one I have to be close to the tower sometimes for it to connect to LTE. Also sometimes you may still get 1x signal from one tower and LTE from another all depends. If you notice to your 1x is somtimes better than your LTE due most likely cus LTE has more of fragile signal than EVDO. Idk if this is any help I could be way off on it, trying to remember.

Thanks, yea any answer is good, just seems like my s4 is have a very hard time trying to figure out what to connect to, I have signal check set to notify me via sound when I connect to Lte and drop to 3g and it just goes nuts.

The site is at Sylvania & King. The output is mostly pointed west so, if you were heading east, the strength on that side of the site is weaker than if you were headed west, toward Centennial, where the signal also extends further.  I'm sure this is because the neighboring sites to the east are much closer than sites to the west.  This could be the reason it seemed to favor weaker lte signals over stronger cdma.

That could be a good reason. Just want my phone to work again, having way to many problems even when connected to a full strength Lte tower

This very true cus there's one up the street on the blue water tower, one over by 475 and one right by central and McCord. Than to the west it's the tower in Metamora on C.R. S and 3-1. You don't want towers overlapping eachother with signal or it will cause a big mess, hence the weaker signal to the east and direcited toward the west...it was late I was trying to remember all this lol..thanks for explaing this tho :tu:

Could it be so that I found a permit for 2500 LTE?? There's a few more at other locations as well. Don't want to give to much more detail due to this being an open fourm.

    • You literally said #2 carrier ahead of AT&T. They're #2 not because of network metrics but because of the amount of subscribers they have. Nationally, they're still ranked last in terms of overall network performance because despite their square milage, they still lack in call and text reliability. There is zero doubt that they have one of, if not the fastest network in the country but that isn't the only metric to measure a network.
    • Nothing to do anything about number of customers... How are they not on par with the big two?  TMobile is crushing it for data in all the major markets.  If TMobile can execute their 2017 coverage map goal, they will be on par with AT&T, which is considered to be in the same coverage league as VZW.  So yes, TMobile will be in this club come 2018. https://www.t-mobile.com/coverage/lte-comparison-map
    • This is a reach. AT&T and Verizon still have twice as many customers as T-Mobile and even if they added 2 Million customers per quarter it would take 8 years before they got to VZ and AT&T's current size, assuming VZW or AT&T don't have any growth at all. We can acknowledge T-Mobile's accomplishments without making it seem like they're nearly on par with the big two. In terms of data speed, sure. In terms of price, they're approaching it too. However, you won't be able to find the consistency of the duopoly's network nationwide on T-Mobile right now. That'll take quite a bit more infill sites. That's why given Sprint's "non-announcement" of 8K macro sites for expansion, I'm glad to see it's not a huge expansion because we know that they're going for reliability over square mileage.
    • burnout8488-   Probably about 30 minutes a day.  I mostly text and web browse with it. Galaxyguy-         I didn't add any other apps at that same time...  Of course, Samsung has installed a number of apps around then and in the last week that I have no use for-  I'll watch to see if indeed my battery rebounds or continues to suck.
    • And in terms of this, TMobile already does on many fronts.  They constantly prove to be #1 in so many data tests. Verizon and TMobile are essentially #1/2 in terms of data speeds and they are the most constrained carriers in terms of spectrum.  In terms of Coverage, TMobile continues to show us how they will be on par with VZW/AT&T soon and do continue to deliver with expanded coverage. TMobile is well on its way without Sprint to be equal to VZW/AT&T.  So that is three strong nationwide carriers with Sprint still being a forth option if absolute total native coverage is less a concern.  They are well on their way to provide fast speeds within existing coverage areas.  Honestly, with a little stronger rural coverage and less dead zones TMobile will be the nations #2 carrier ahead of AT&T.
