Yeah, I've been getting T-Mo LTE at my work in Holland the past few days. Gotta admit, 25-30Mbps is nice.

So with a lot of areas being done with new NV stuff, I catch myself saying what Jodie Foster said in the movie contact "Ready to go".. Ready to go"..

Okay since this hasn't been talked about much beside you Codie, Central Avenue and McCord, all old 3G stuff removed. Now they're still isn't 4G but just to let you know they're taking it down as quick as they put the new stuff up

I need a more concrete answer than just by the end of the year.  It seems Lima, Ohio will not even see Sprint 4G this year if possible can anyone get some strong answers for the Lima, Ohio area.

I am also wondering why the Lima area seems to be ignored.  I am in Van Wert and it seems this area is the Big Hole they forgot about.

Well that's about all your going to get for now. They are working all over the market tho seems like there's nothing much going on at all. There's backhaul at a few other sites in Toledo but no LTE with a few with upgrades..idk what Sprint,Samsung or these contractors are thinking right now.. We all want LTE but sooner or later it'll happen. Also they have to do them in clusters even tho we are not a moto market we have them all around our market which will cause all hell to break loose with dropped calls and such. I don't mean to sound like I'm attacking it's frustrating for us all trust me.Also should donate a few bucks that way you can see more information of what's going in our market here's a few sites once you become a sponsor http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/517-nv-sites-complete/http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/3365-toledo-area-building-permits/ Edited by keelerman8042

So this is what is going on at the tower outside of Continental. I'm guessing under the tarp is the panels and rrus. but in the boxes not sure. hopefully nothing that is damaged. Those boxes look beat up pretty bad. They were also out in the pouring rain. You can also see the new base cabinets there next to the old. very exciting!!

Nothing very important happened monday either. figures with my day off.. but on my way to work today around 2 this is what was going on. people out working on everything. So on my break I drove back to the tower to see what they had done. it looks ilke they have 3 new panels up, and the RRUS are setting on the ground down there still. but its nice to see work happening. might stop in on my way to work tomorrow and see whats going on! hopefully better pics

today it looks like they have the rrus up, and they pull out the trailer they had there. but the boxes are still there. I'm guessing they are waiting on backhaul still. I'm sure that will take awhile not sure who they are using for backhaul, just a guess its TDS they are slow at things, and having outages all the time. hopefully it will be fiber they are bringing to the tower they brought it to the GOGO tower down the road. fingers crossed. something happens soon. playing the waiting game is hard lol

Sorry no photo..Bancroft n 23-475...Gear is going up the tower as I write this but, this spot has a shed (like Verizon) So, you guys keep an eye out for what's going on if you live in a certain section of town. We are a small group in Toledo metro area..inner city... Keep your eyes open.. I like to thank Ryan(third person )..LOL

    • 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.
