And that brings us all back to the question about new towers, did they just get plain upgrades and aren't ready for NV, or will they be partly NV ready from the time they are turned on?


The "new tower" I checked out in PHX was legacy equipment. So I guess that means they are not installing Network Vision equipment till they arrive to that market to do the full NV buildout. (although this is just one experience in an isolated case.)

Frankly, I consider that a waste of resources. They could have gotten everything ready for NV, but just put a software restriction in to prevent faster data speeds to maintain their "schedule". Oh well, that's just my opinion.

Hey Robert would you be able to tell me if they started NV in 60087? Around Lewis and sunset?

I agree to some extent. However, I wonder if new sites are handled by their Network Manager, Ericsson? ALU is the NV vendor for Phoenix. So its probably two separate contracts handling two separate things. Plus, we don't know how "new" this site is. Is it one month old, three months old, six months old? We aren't sure.

Looks like they are just starting NV at some sites in Waukegan. Three of them are scheduled to start NV in May. The rest look like August. The May sites will have 3G come live pretty quickly. The 4G LTE will come live later (like all the Chicago market). Although it appears the schedule may have slipped a little by a week or two.

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.

Robert

Not a problem, I'm not going to go jump off a bridge or anything!! :lol:

I had figured on 2013 before I saw that, just wanted some clarification. Us hillbillies here in Iowa aren't a high priority, lol.

Wait so in Waukegan they are only going to work on 3 towers? Could you possibly tell me at which locations? And I'm going to become a sponsor once I get paid next week.(Car needed a new motor and clutch this payday.)

Not sure if they are NV upgrades or not, but the Sprint network site says 55912 is slated for 3 upgrades on two towers in "next 6 months", though that has been like that for awhile. I've heard that they will be happening around July 30th. Is it possible to verify that, Robert? The slow speeds in town are absolutely brutal, Straight Talk phones did not help the matter either.

Thanks.

Those are the "band aid" fixes that are aiming to make 3G usable until network vision upgrades the towers.

I am thinking NV has started here in Chicago. This past week I have had numerous dropped calls and the data is even slower than before. A few co workers have also stated they are dropping calls as of this week. It seems to be happening all over the city, my home on south side, my work in the west side and my coworkers homes up on the north side. Hopefully by august or September they are running full steam on NV.

Louisville KY falls in the West Kentucky market, which is not in the first 2 rounds and Robert is not speculating on 3rd and 4th rounds because there is way too many variables to have any degree of accuracy. It will most likely be 2013.

Minnesota will start sooner, though.


I know it's in the second round, but... how much sooner? :P

(First post, so I thought I'd hedge my shameless beg with a quick "thanks for this site!")
