NYC LTE updates?

Recommended Posts

I am waiting too, but I was in the Throgsneck area and got a Wimax 15mbs down today....I can't wait to see what LTE offers

 

We post an updated map in the Sponsors forum every week showing the latest Network Vision sites to go live, including in the NYC market. An example of the latest map is below:

I saw this map, and I am anticipating the release However; I wont be getting a Phone until after the SGIII drops so I can Choose between that and the EVO LTE. Who ever has the best radio is going to get my hands wrapped around it. LOL The one tower that's near 95I am guessing is in the Parkchester area of the Bronx ware in January I received over 1mb up and down on 3G. Phonedog has a review of the SGIII that has my attention not withstanding the specs of 1.9 ff camera 2gigs of ram, and possiblr better radio on paper.....SGIII looks promising!

Looking at the map' date=' am I correct by saying that no 4g upgrades have been completed yet?

In the NYC market, Sprint is not reporting any of the NV complete sites yet are broadcasting LTE. However, we did receive a report that a member was able to connect to LTE in the Jersey cluster around Freehold/Marlboro.

Hi guys, I live in Brooklyn. I have the EVO lte. while I used to see an average of 800kb for 3g on my Samsung, Now I get 1.3-2 mbps . I'm not sure if its the EVO or the nv. In any case how come we barley see new Yorkers writing about sprint in New work?

Its not just new York people talk bad about sprint all the time. Yeah the other carriers may have more coverage in more places but I only need my phone to work in my city and cities I vacation in. I've tried other carriers but sprints price to performance works for me. Anyway with network vision your going to see a major improvement in speeds and signal strength

Thanks u guys. I just thought its weird how nyc is one or biggest sprint markets yet the shortest thread.

I guess for now will just enjoy the NV.

Can't wait for LTE to put my beast phone to serve me.

I just did a speed test, I got 1820 down and 911 up.

What's funny is I did the test in Brooklyn and the tower is from Clifton NJ. I wonder what I would get in NJ.

Sorry I'm a New here, Is there a way to upload a picture on this site?

Thank you,

I have the paid forum runner and it wouldn't give me the option, only by other forums.

For me, if hit reply to a post, there are three buttons at the bottom of the text box using Forum Runner. Attachments is the middle one.

Interesting, I just tried again.

On xda it gives me the option and on S4GRU it only gives me send or cancel.

I'll try to reinstall it or if not ill try the link option.

The server hosting the speedtest session is in Clifton, NJ not the tower you are connected to.

Thanks for the info, I guess I don't fully understand how it goes from server to tower. I'll maybe read on it a lil. Any suggestion were to read?

I tried the same thing and I got the attachment option on xda but I don't get it here. Perhaps it is a permissions issue. Since Robert is an administrator his permissions level on the forum side allows attachments via this interface.

I think that may be the reason Robert sees it and others don't.

 

As for the NY thread, well Robert has mentioned that the reports coming for NYC are slow, but that does not mean work isn't being done here in the city.

 

As for NY'rs hating sprint, I've always have advocated sprint and have no issues whatsoever with their service, signal, plans etc.

And while its true that my main line is now on AT&T its only because Sprint doesn't have the Note. Even with the Note, on AT7T, i keep it connected to my Sprint Tri-Fi.

 

Once LTE comes to the city, not only will this thread pick up but you will see quite a few folks coming back to Sprint from the other carriers that are gauging their customers left.

I randomly get the attachment button in forum runner pro, haven't figured out the trick yet

 

Edit in: it has to be a permission thing. I have the attachment button in Interactive Maps and Sponsor forums, but no where else that I've spot checked.

 

Robert can you comment?

    • T-Mobile wins more 5G spectrum over AT&T's objections So now it's official?
    • Just got back from Puerto Rico. I spent a lot of time going around the San Juan metro area, predominantly in Viejo San Juan, Santurce, Isla Verde, and a short stop in University Gardens.  T-Mobile's network still performs as well today as it did when I last tested and in my opinion is the best on the island. n41 is still at 100MHz in most areas though I did record a few areas with only 80MHz. Yesterday the FCC announced that they're finally granting T-Mobile their Auction 108 winnings so we'll probably finally see that increase. They also have 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz n71. The fastest speed I recorded while there was 922 down and 120 up, presumably aggregating n41+n25 and potentially n71 as well but I wasn't able to confirm that. A couple of things I noticed about their network are that their is a ton of split-sector n25 deployed in San Juan, much like in the U.S. I even noticed some n41 sites that had 4 or more sectors. The weirdest being the site on top of SJU Airport where they have 6 n41 sectors each broadcasting 80MHz of n41. AT&T SIMs roam on LIberty's network but they still treat it as the home network. In my opinion they're the second best network in Puerto Rico. Liberty is still using the AT&T MCC-MNC code and is pretty much coasting on AT&T's network upgrades. They have 10MHz n5 virtually everywhere but I never saw my phone connect to any other 5G bands. Their saving grace was just how much spectrum they have to aggregate across midband and lowband. I'd see combos like 10MHz n5 + 20MHz B2 + 10MHz B66 + 10MHz Band 30 + 5MHz Band 2 and get upwards of 200Mbps. Coverage was slightly worse than T-Mobile in my experience, even indoors which is a surprise given T-Mobile usually struggles a bit indoors due to their macro density. Verizon is roaming on Claro in Puerto Rico just as they have been for years. No idea if there is 5G roaming because I was connected to LTE the entire time. Toggling 5G didn't do anything and both pings and speeds weren't great. Speeds were in the 20-40Mbps range consistently and pings over 200ms. For comparison T-Mobile's pings are in the teens and Liberty pings are in the 40's even when roaming using an AT&T SIM. Claro's network is ok in my experience with nothing really notable about it.  — — — — — Here are some pics of sites that I took:
    • WTB instructed to process all 2.5GHz licenses across the USA. They are only giving up some spectrum in certain markets of Hawaii.
    • Is this just for licenses in Hawaii?
    • Yeah, it basically directs the bureau to proceed with granting the applications in the normal course.  It's no longer being held by the AT&T objection. - Trip
