I thought CA was on in Shentel I can't remember seeing it though. I know 2nd carrier is widespread where B41 is located.

In my county (Shenandoah Co), I've found three towers so far with B41. All have two carriers active, but CA is not active.

I only know of 1 B41 site in Jefferson County, WV. But it does have CA.

im noticing alot of degraded signal quality in the area... im assuming the towers are getting upgraded now or the backhaul in Shenandoah is being upgraded

 

 

I used to get LTE inside my job in New Oxford and as of about a month ago, i barely get signal. If I leave my phone sitting alone on my desk, it will occasionally pick up LTE, but as soon as I pick up my phone, it'll drop to 3G and sometimes 1x and is completely unusable. A coworker and I already reported network issues via Sprint Zone app a few times and are hoping they resolve whatever got messed up.

It's nationwide now. Just flew from Baltimore to Miami, both are having the same issue and care told me they have many calls on it

If there is a nationwide problem right now, I'm sure it's not related to this isolated incident that he's experiencing for the past month at his workplace.

I'm not disregarding his issue and I experience it to in PA, I'm just saying I am having this in Baltimore and Miami.

Just found a new 10X10 band 25 carrier in Shentel territory.  It Waynesboro, Pa city

UL channel 26140     DL Channel 8140.

This is a change.  We did have the standard G block 5X5 and another 5X5 probably in Block "A"

SCP identifies this as B25 with no second carrier identification.

I am not sure if they obtained something other than block "A" somehow or what.

I have not seen a B-25 second carrier identification in SCPsince this 10X10 suddenly appeared, but there may still be a second b-25 carrier here.

An nTelos site was removed here as it was no longer needed.  nTelos used band 25 but not sure what block was used here. It was not block "A:"

Could this be from trading another carrier to make one 10x10 channel instead of two 5x5 channels?

No, 8140 is the product of an expansion of the 5x5 A Block LTE carrier to a 10x10 A Block carrier. The 5x5 G Block carrier (at 8665) should not have changed...

It was late last night when I discovered this new 10X10 Carrier and I did not really have time to investigate it.  You could be right on the use of the "A" Block.  It could be that Shentel could be forcing more 1x voice traffic onto 800 so that they could clear the "A" block for this 10X10. Another possibility is that 1X voice could have been shifted onto 1900 spectrum they obtained when they killed the nTelos cell sites in this area of Pennsylvania. Needs more investigation.  My Galaxy s7 totally loves this new 10X10 and I am not able to get it to land on the old "G" block at all.

Does anybody know of any improvement going on or about to happen in the Roanoke valley area?

 

I used to get 60+ at my house from the beginning with B41, now I’m at 5-20 Mbps.. The pings are higher, however B41 actually works now in the Valley View area.. (it wouldn’t even assign an IP at the beginning)..

 

I’m wondering if CA is scheduled to come to town any time soon.. pretty big market for Sprint here..

Looks like I found my first B25 CA. This is outside of Edinburg, VA. It's two 5x5 carriers. I would be curious to know why they haven't enabled a 10x10 carrier, since they have spectrum to do that in this area, but hey, I'll take it. 0c6e478dd12a5bd35709f6cf784db5a5.jpgbfd2f975ba6a0a560f0c76bd69c7dee1.jpg

      The 850 MHz LTE Sprint network is so congested in De Soto MO. I also have proof on my SDR Radio.
       My SDR Radio can only show 1.920 MHz of the 5 MHz wide LTE Signal.

      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 !

      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).

    • 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.
    • I don't recall anyone saying they expect pricing to further reduce in either scenario...Sprint going alone nor a merger with Tmo.
