I noticed in this article http://s4gru.com/ind...ge-for-chicago/ that it says some sites are going up in North East Iowa. I'm curious if this includes any around the 50702, 50613, or 50651 zipcodes (Waterloo/Cedar Falls Area). The slow speeds here are killing me
Also, if you have any information on the schedule for tower DM03IP329 @ 42.518472330470786, -92.44050732424769, I have a clear view of it from work as my workplace is on the corner of Adams and Irving. I was thinking about setting up a time lapse camera to watch the upgrades.
Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I need to add an update to this article. When I originally wrote the first completed draft of this article, it did not include any info about Northeast Iowa at all. It was only about the Chicago market based on documents we seen.
However, just prior to publishing, I was contacted by a source about Network Vision equipment deliveries that were occurring in several communities in NE Iowa and St. Cloud, Minnesota. At that time, not knowing as much about NV deployment as I do now, I made the assumption that Network Vision was beginning in those markets. We have since learned that NV Equipment deliveries (especially by Samsung) are happening far, far in advance in many locations. NV Equipment deliveries have very little bearing on the actual NV schedule.
Also since the date this article was published we have seen national NV schedules and local NV schedules. We know definitively that even though equipment has landed in NE Iowa for Samsung to use in the future, NV has not begun in that market. Planning, permitting and design are not even complete in that area. There will likely not be any NV deployment in any of the Iowa markets until 2013. Minnesota will start sooner, though.
This point is one of the reasons why we no longer publish anything anymore based upon verbal communication, but only on things we see ourselves. Sorry for the confusion and disappointment this causes.
