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.

Do you know the Tower number....? I can check for you.

 

*EDIT* duh, nevermind, Forum Runner didn't say you were a sponsor.... :D

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!

I get all my information here. The only upgrades that are not going to be NV are ones that are done in non major metros.

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 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.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.
