Network Vision/LTE - Las Vegas Market

Recommended Posts

 

 

It will change for the better and in a big way. I happen to live in an area that has been upgraded to Network Vision with 4G LTE.

The results are amazing. Much Much better than I ever expected. It is worth waiting for. It just is too big of a project to complete real fast.

 

in what area in Vegas has upgraded, am far north of Vegas and signal is bad.

Yeah, what area in Vegas has been upgraded? I would drive there just to sit beneath the tower and bask in the glow of the wonderful goodness that is LTE. Seriously though, I have heard 2013 a few times but I haven't seen Vegas on any of those network deployment announcements. Did I miss one?

Guys, I do NOT live in Vegas, but I do visit there quite often. I really never had a complaint, but I realize the problems getting a signal into some of the Casinos and Hotels and accept it. Be assured, when Sprint does attack Las Vegas and you start to see the results, you will be amazed.

None of Las Vegas has been upgraded. That poster was referring to an area outside of Las Vegas. The updates for Las Vegas should start sometime in the first few months of 2013.

Vegas hasn't started yet, but even authorized retailers are being told that work will start in Q1 13. And if history with Alcatel Lucent is any indication, 3G work will be done first with 4G coming online beginning in Q2 13. Be patient, it's coming. Only a few more months to go before we start seeing LTE in the Vegas area!

Anyone in Vegas live near the Christ Lutheran Church on North Torrey Pines by the 95 Freeway? I want someone to take pictures of it and post so we can see if they have started work in the area. Thanks!

Just got word the first five sites in the Vegas market were accepted today. All were 3G only, so far. No surprise considering this is a AlcaLu market. They are currently In Progress on the Sponsor maps.

Work just started in the Las Vegas market. The first 3G sites have just been this week. The 1st LTE sites should start coming online in the Spring time if all goes according to plan. An unofficial launch may happen by June or sooner, but it will take a while for the market to be complete. As soon as you have a 4G LTE signal, please post a screen shot of the Field Test screen, dial *3001#12345#* and look up the LTE section that displays the Physical Cell ID so that we can dispatch someone with an Android phone to map it on Sensorly. The next few months are an exciting time for the Vegas Market.

Sounds like a switch problem. I was in Vegas on December 11th and had no problem.

Market work just started this month. 3G improvements will start first and sometime this spring we will start to see LTE pop up on Sensorly. 1st 3G sites were accepted this last week.

Was in Vegas over the weekend and for the most part signal was good around the center of the strip. Going to the South Point though, i lost signal a few times.but it wasn't as bad as it used to be.

Las Vegas folks, this is what you are looking for:

The Alcatel Lucent Antennas are circled in red! This pic was taken from the tower at Tropicana and Eastern.

 

If you see any other towers in the Vegas area with these antennas, post pics and the closest cross streets.

 

And for those that want to become Sponsors to find out which towers have received build permits and where they are located, the link is here.

Imagine having to live with this unbelievably bad 3G day after day in Vegas, when you have an LTE capable phone just waiting for that LTE to kick in. I see this other post that says it should start kicking in by Spring. We shall see. I can imagine when these lucky people, you know those from Podunk USA population 25 that already have LTE come to Vegas on vacation and find they are stuck on really slow 3G. So much for uploading and sharing those photos quickly LOL. Well here's hoping MacinJosh is correct, that would be a good thing.

In the Sponsor section, we have maps of sites permitted, In Progress and already completed with initial upgrades in the Las Vegas market. Work is already well underway in this area.

I was just in Vegas the other day and data was screaming fast on 3G! I was getting speeds of up to 2Mbps download all over the place, like Summerlin Pkwy and Buffalo, the 215 and Tropicana. Work has been underway and is continuing to do so! I'm hoping for a ramp up in production soon!

Yeah, there are some slow cell sites in Vegas for sure. However, by and large my 3G is generally usable in most of the areas that I frequent.

The Sprint site at Boulder Highway just north-west of Nellis was approved by the Clark County Building commission yesterday. Is anyone near there that can take pictures and post them here? It's right next to the Long John Silvers on the west side of Boulder.

    • All Good Valid Questions.  If I remember correctly, I think T-Mobile has to assist with financing should Shentel want to buy out T-Mobiles assets.  If my memory is good on that point, it might make a difference. T-Mobile surely had their hands full of issues in the country.  If I were in their shoes, I would be very happy to have Shentel upgrade and manage all assets in the current Shentel area.  Shentel's Sprint network is very very good. They built a network that was better then Sprint was elsewhere.  There is no question that Shentel would do a much better job combining the networks than T-Mobile would.    T-Mobile really needs Shentel to continue their good work. I hope T-Mobile  realizes that. T-Mobile's network in most of the Shentel territory is not good. Shentel's Sprint network is very very good. Shentel could easily combine them efficiently and have a superior network to anybody else.
    • So does anyone have experienced band 71 that's basically unusable and band 12 unusable? I've had no luck with either one in month's.  I'm in the Denver area. Just wondering if it's just my area or nation wide.  
    • According to that link, the OnePlus 8 supports 5G SA, but it didn't specify the software version required. How would I know if I was connected to 5G SA?
    • https://www.shentel.com/news/2020/july/20q2 earnings release Some notes on this possible acquisition. So the 90-days after the Sprint/TMobile merger is up.  TMobile and Shentel did not negotiate a new agreement where Shentel would continue as a TMobile affiliate. T-Mobile has a period of 60 days to purchase the assets of the Shentel's wireless operations at 90% EBV.  This period ends August 31th.  If T-Mobile does not purchase Shentel's wireless assets, Shentel has 60 days to purchase T-Mobile's legacy network and subscribers in Shentel's service area.  If after these 60 days Shentel does not purchase out T-Mobile then T-Mobile must sell or decommission it's network and customers in Shentel's service area.   Now, questions I have: 1.) Would there be reason for T-Mobile to not have purchased Shentel's wireless business out August 1st or the 3rd? Would they wanna wait until the 30th? Since there is no news on T-Mobile making their move is it a higher chance that Shentel's wireless survives this merger? 2.) If Shentel makes it past the 30th, do they have the capital to purchase TMobile's assets and customers? 3.) If Shentel buys T-Mobile out or T-Mobile exists the service area, in both these cases does Shentel get the rights to all of T-Mobile's spectrum portfolio? Only the Sprint spectrum? What about the 800MHz they utilize does that still go to Dish? 4.) What if Shentel expands?  I know they made an agreement with Sprint a while back that gave them the option to expand deep into Eastern KY (possibly via an Appalachian Wireless acquisition maybe?).  If Shentel expands into new service areas will that force T-Mobile out?
