Network Vision/LTE - Kansas Market (including KC, Topeka, Wichita, St. Joseph)

Recommended Posts

Was in olathe, ks and by 5 nv towers and had almost no luck with lte. Did have 4g pop on for 2 seconds and before I could launch a speedtest went to 3g, then back to 4g one more time then 3g. This was on santa fe between kansas ave and hwy 7. Try more parts of kc next Sunday.

Of course many times... :(

The bastards are still blocking. I think they really are in no hurry to unblocked before the EVO is in customer hands. Although a part of me thinks that they won't light up LTE until an OTA for the EVO comes out.

Man I hope my EVO comes in at best buy soon. I will be up in Gardner and Olathe and want to sniff out those LTE waves (that is if they have been unblocked).

the EVO LTE will need an OTA update before the LTE on the phone works (i believe, correct me if im wrong)

I have no confirmation when the OTA Fix for LTE Connectivity issues is coming. I don't think its possible to have been taken care of prior to leaving the factory. However, it may prompt you at activation to update.

 

If the update isn't ready yet, I would love for a member to go to one of the Athens LTE sites working to see if they have LTE Connectivity issues with the EVO LTE.

Can any other KC area members confirm that eHRPD is down today Monday 6/04? Only NID 00041 (KC-LENEXA-MSC_1) and NID 00042 (KC-LENEXA-MSC_2) seem to be affected. eHRPD is restored upon crossing back over to NID 00043 (KC-INDEPENDENCE-MSC_1).

When I got in my truck from working out, I looked at the phone and the 4G indicator was on. :) It must have been on that tower only, when I drove away, it changed back to 3G. The location was 135th and neiman in Overland Park, KS.

Did you run a speed test while you were connected?

Excellent, with me getting lte the other day as well and the other poster in houston in the other thread, now this one, it looks like the official launch is right around the corner. Hopefully

Yes, I ran a speed test, they have some tuning to do. It is like 512K download and 4mb upload. No those are not reversed. I was surprised too. I have download netmonitor so I can tell what tower I'm connected to next time. :)

I would be surprised if NetMonitor will tell you which LTE site you are connected to. It will likely tell you the 1x/EVDO. And the chances of you being on a different 1x/EVDO and LTE site are pretty high.

 

But I'm interested to see what you find out using NetMonitor.

Well I was back in the area this afternoon, definitely must be testing, because when I got there it was 3G service. After going into the store and then getting ready to leave, it switched to 4G. Net monitor showed connections to 3 different towers at times. All in a circle around me. I will do netted next time capturing logs and speed test.

Update: Didn't think 4G was on this morning, but after working out, I was driving home and 4G popped up at 135th and Switzer. I turned around and stopped in the St. Andrews golf parking lot. Net monitor show the network type as LTE, but I could find a pen fast enough to write all the info down, but here is the info when connected to same tower eHRPD

kckid, you were not connected via eHRPD, which is just a variation on EV-DO. The data speeds that you measured -- both uplink and downlink -- are impossible for an eHRPD/EV-DO Rev A single carrier. So, you were connected via LTE. I investigated the site at 135th & Black Bob last night. Here is a screen cap of my EVO LTE connected via LTE:

Not sure if the new EVO folks know but hold the power and hit home to take a screenshot. No need to write anything down.

Can't get that one to work for me. Maybe the onscreen menu button removal/remap makes it not work.

Awesome, didn't realize that worked as well. I figured it was just specific to the gnex, so maybe the power volume down thing is a standard ICS feature.

Make sure you hold both buttons down for 2 seconds or so.

It's a little tricky until you get used to it.

I think so. Because my E4GT started to allow that after I upgraded it to ICS too.

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      Sprint announced the MVNO Google Fi will use its network for 5G in a press release (that is, once there are actually 5G capable phones compatible with Google Fi someday):
      https://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-to-provide-5g-wireless-services-for-google-fi.htm
       
      This is the first I've heard about Fi and 5G so far. Google has pretty much kept mum on the topic, so I'm somewhat encouraged.
