Hi All,

 

I cant find this tower on Indianapolis's map for cell sites but it looks like a Sprint tower with RUUs attached.

 

What do you all think?

AT&T is starting to use RRU's, what does the base station look like? is it in a shed or not?

sorry to burst your bubble but those towers have been everywhere for years. Sprint has started doing some upgrades in our area but I have seen no improvements as of yet. those towers are probably AT&T t mobile or Verizon towers that absolutely destroy sprint service in our area, since we were shafted on the 4g. I am excited to have 3G speeds above 100kbits also lol.

Hi, actually all of the new hardware I'm referring to has been added in the past few months Max. The tower picture I posted had those added a month ago.

 

Most areas speed is fine with me 1mb, bit some areas are bad. Also those areas have the same issue with Verizon 4g and ATT 4g

I live close to Ivy Tech downtown and my speeds suck all the time. Everyday. I have always wondered how I can live so close to downtown and have such a decrepit and slow network experience. Voice calls are fine but data....sheesh! A few weeks ago, I was in the parking lot of the Walgreens on16th and Meridian and couldn't get a signal at all. 16th and Meridian! I have an Evo 3d which doesn't have any radio problems. I'm like Riggs.I'm excited to see speeds over 100kb also. I tend to stay on the West side and the only place I've ever seen Wimax was at the racetrack and a couple of pockets on the northwest side.

The last time I was downtown during the mini marathon, I tested about 800Kbps. On the north side a few days ago, around 86th and Michigan I got 900Kbps, sometimes higher.

 

Here in Muncie I've been seeing speeds fluctuate violently in the past week. A few towers here are due for NV updates so I'm just crossing my fingers.

The current state of Sprint's network is pretty bad for 3G data in many places. Network Vision will correct most of these problems. Fortunately, Indy is in a sooner rather than later area. You should start seeing network improvements this year...and some 4G LTE.

That's AT&T's RRU. Same around STL where AT&T is doing a Network Vision like upgrade in getting 4G LTE running.

 

Thank you for he replay, ATT just started lte here so that makes sense.

I've not made any changes to the map since it was posted. I will be working on S4GRU most of tomorrow and will take a look at it. I'm pretty tied up today.

    • The powerline tower overlooking downtown Redmond has FINALLY been upgraded. I guess it took this long due to the large birds nest on top of the tower. During the upgrade, they moved all LTE frequencies including B41 to one eNB 84782 and decommissioned eNBs 97521 and 95988. Additionally, the tower finally has all three 5G-SA bands (gNB 1852420). 
    • I have 3 Samsung Galaxy a10e for mapping LTE. For 5G I like the Samsung a32 5g (both factory unlocked).  In both cases try to get one with firmware from the spring of this year.  Then you can use the Samsung Band Selection app no matter what the carrier. Been trying to get my OnePlus Nord n200 5Gs squared away with android 11 and rooted.  OnePlus bought out by Oppo thus service and strategic direction are both problems.  Just getting an e-mail back for the unlock the bootloader process is taking a while. Once we get out of NSA, 5g will be much easier to map. Factory unlocked esim issues are plentiful on high end Samsungs.  My quest is a factory unlocked phone that works well with SCP and Cellmapper for both SA and NSA, with multiple active esims that work easily with MVNOs, functioning VoNR, great reception and transmission, full band support for AT&T and Dish. My next hopeful candidate is the s23.
    • Forgot to mention that I traveled all over the lower Hudson Valley last weekend while using the Verizon eSIM trial to directly both carriers' coverage on one device as opposed to using a second phone. Coverage was virtually the same in my experience with the biggest exception being the Bear Mountain region. All along the Long Mountain Parkway from Woodbury Common going east, coverage remained virtually the same. Both carriers reported similar signal strength going all the way down to 1 bar at the same times but when I arrived at the roundabout near where Long Mountain and Palisades Parkway meet up with one another, Verizon had a much stronger signal compared to T-Mobile's 1 bar. Verizon has a series of sites installed all over Bear Mountain State Park to provide signal to visitors. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like any other carrier attempted to do the same in the 2+ years since they got built. Because of these sites when you're driving on Bear Mountain Bridge and along Bear Mountain Bridge Road going south, Verizon has slightly stronger signal than T-Mobile. — — — — — I'm thinking about buying a burner Android phone to get back into mapping again because I drive around the city a lot and never get the chance to do so. I have a Galaxy S7 Edge in a drawer with an inactive T-Mobile SIM but it doesn't register LTE at all and it doesn't have Band 71 so it's not that useful for me. Any recommendations for phones/plans to map cheaply?
    • So what am I missing???   Why cant i get the s22 ultra do a screen share through cord??  Trying to get it to share to my 10" auto screen. I could enable it with the note 20.. but I cant seem to get this to do it.. All the videos show 1 way, but that setting isnt there.
    • Got the update last night. Broke SCP notifications .... so yay.
