I think I've gotten my first taste of NV.


Recommended Posts

This week I'm attending a conference at a hotel in the National Harbor area outside of DC. I've been seeing 3g speeds I've never seen before on sprint. Here are three speedtest results from yesterday:

 

1873kbps/578kbps

447kbps/450kbps*

1932kbps/580kbps

2393kbps/583kbps

 

And from this morning:

 

1722kbps/720kbps

 

According to the DC market map there is a tower in this area, however it is not yet on the completed sites map. Maybe it will show up in the next round of updates Robert gets.

 

*-I received a text message during test which seemed to throw the test off.

Sprint says one of the towers in my area will be getting some upgrades on June 14.

Do you have the ability to check and let me know what kind of work is being performed?

That's great news.

 

A text message will throw off 3G speed tests because your device will switch to 1x for a few moments for the text message then revert back to EVDO.

 

Lots of times sites will be active in advance of showing up on our maps. Sometimes even by weeks. I don't get the site report until Sprint accepts the site from the OEM. Sometimes they refuse to accept the site for some reason. When this occurs, the site is still active, but not reported on-air. It stays this way until the OEM corrects whatever Sprint complained about. Once Sprint accepts the site, it shows up on the list and then I report it on the NV Sites Complete map.

Robert can you tell what's scheduled to be done on these sites in the near future NY60XC155, NY05XC315

Sprint tells me upgrades are to be performed on June 14. I can't even complete a speed test when in the vicinity of these towers.

 

Thanks.

Furthermore greg, if you have noticed an HUGE increase in dropped calls, data not working right (which it sounds like you have) thats usually a sign that upgrades are currently being done in your area. These conditions will last about 2 weeks or until upgrades are completed in your area.

Thanks for the link but it would be a travesty for me to be on these forums on not know what NV is LOL

 

I was hoping you had info on schedules other than what's posted in the Sponsor forums.

 

Thanks anyway!

Ha ha. Yup, that's how I figured out there was a tower nearby. In fact it may be on top of the hotel where my conference is.

 

Edit: this forum runner app will take getting used to. I thought I was quoting a post from aerxx.

I will post the screen capture if I can figure out how. They were at various points throughout day. Early lunch time and afternoon. And this morning.

I am on the road for work this week and cannot look up specific sites for members. I may be able to this weekend if I come back across the thread.

From the maps in the Premier Sponsors forum, work for NY60XC155 started a few days ago and NY05XC315 is scheduled to start in a couple weeks. Scheuduled to be online in the mid to late July timeframe, assuming the schedule there still holds.

Anyway to know if the work is 4G LTE installation or 3G maintenance?

The maps on this Site are NV only. Not related to Sprint's 3G maintenance. You would have to go to the network.sprint.com site for that info.

That all depends though on when Sprint announces the NY market as live, even if the towers are live. As has been reported here for other towers/markets, LTE is live on many sites but at this point Sprint is blocking LTE for customers. Until they open it up, the site might be live but not accepting LTE connections.

I had Wimax way before it was officially announced in my market, hopefully it plays out the same way.

    • Confirmed on my way to work this morning and while out on lunch that the only Sprint sites I connected to were keep sites. All others seem to now be offline at least around Louisville and Shepherdsville KY. 
    • It is pretty easy to use, once you get the hang of it. For example, to select a specific LTE Band(s) Click on [7] --Clear selected bands Click on [5] LTE Band Preferences Click on the specific band(s) you want to enable.  Click on [F] Go Main Click on [9] --Apply band configuration The same holds for NR5G, just you would click on [5] NR5G Band preferences instead of [5] LTE Band Preferences To re-enable all bands: Click on [8] --Select all bands Click on [9] --Apply band configuration  
    • Got the Android 12 based upgrade today with May 2022 security.  They now have favorites in contacts. Have not yet figured out how to get rid of the google/T-Mobile screen. Wall paper changes.
    • 25/26 are still on here, though the site historically nearest me has been decom'd. I did have to cycle to B26 and then B25 to get my phone to lock on, as going directly to B25 landed me on AT&T MFBI. Will be interesting to see how long 25/26 stay on; it's hard to connect to Sprint B41 here as there's plenty of T-Mobile B41 on n41 sites.
    • Looks like the remaining Sprint network might be dead here now. Forcing my phone to B25 or B26 gives me no network, sad day for sure.
