So are your normal towers you all connect to working? Mine has been out for a week and a half. I am connecting to about 6 different towers in its place and drop every call. It is so bad I know some of my neighbors have called and complained even.

you guys do a great job of still scouting the towers out!! I haven't had much luck with anything new around my area. not finding anything new just the same old stuff. our tower still has the small boxes out there, haven't seen anyone around for awhile. still waiting for the backhaul  <_<. still hopeful though. when i was opening a new store in McComb the speeds were great! :D wish i had those speed here, but I have the airave and wifi so I'm good. my wifi is quicker. here is to hoping that the end of this month or next will bring our market some good news!!

So to go off my post from yesterday. I drove by the tower today on my way to work and bam there are people are working on the tower again. On the top and bottom!! I did a drive by taking some pics. Hopefully good news still trying to stay positive about the whole thing. Cause sprint said 90 days well the 90 days are about up. But that is taking that with a grain of salt Lol. Same with the text I got lte will be in your area soon!

Ok, Bancroft and Douglas has workers there..There seems to be a hybrid cable shortage. The crew put up 2 towers so far without cabling. Also, they are using K&W antennas as well as Andrews. When I see Andrews I think of T Mobile so, if you see Andrews antennas don't assume its for Tmo @ a site..got it ?

Are there any updates for LTE in Toledo - Oregon, Ohio? Last update I see here is Nov 20. Thanks

Nope, they are working slowly in Toledo maybe a tower every week or two weeks being worked on. Oregon has a tower with the equit. up by wal-mart. Just waiting for Sprint to accept it or whatever the case may be.

also there's a lot of sites up but, there is no hybrid cable available. Why is there a shortage? I don't know

Is that still the problem? It feels like that was months ago.

according to the guy I know from a previous site, he's the only one out of a3 man crew that show up and he said he's got a hybrid cable shortage. He has done 3 or four towers they're all up but, there is no cable available until next year.

That sounds good and bad. Seems like as soon as they get an order of cable in we could be good.

I would say make sure you call sprint and complain. Please ask for a ticket number

We have tryed that too ans we get the same crap..you have to try to get higher ups to get anything done. Me and Ryan have had the same issues for 3 months now tho my voice now stays on the tower that I'm supposed to connect too, but data goes back and forth...hate to say it but I think we don't have a choice til they get LTE here.

Thankfully our contracts are up in May. Sprint has us until then....I think we've been on Sprint since 98.  It's never been this bad.

    • 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.
