Network weirdness in Canton, Ohio

Recommended Posts

Been bouncing between roaming and distant Sprint connections all day. Appears that my closest tower is offline for Sprint atm.

 

Latt: 40.8667

Long: -81.3442

 

Hoping it's NV related, but not holding my breath.

I thought Ohio markets were all round 3 and currently unplanned. Maybe you are getting some bandaid fixes listed at network.sprint.com, could be additional backhaul, voice or data carriers.

I was in the dc area early last week and I was experiencing the same thing. This was happening in areas where I should not be roaming at all.

I wouldn't be opposed to bandaids at this point =]

 

Currently showing zero bars, then it bounces to Revol and I get a bar or two and it bounces back to sprint.. no bars, etc..

Do you have any upgrades listed on network.sprint.com?

Yeah, there are several listed in the next 6 months:

 

2 Voice, 1 Data Capacity, and 2 Data Speed upgrades scheduled for that tower.

Well, I can't even receive calls on my phone now - they go directly to voicemail. Connections is still bouncing from a distant Sprint tower and a Revol roam. Hopefully they get this sorted very soon.

Like I told Robert, I caught a couple of guys at my sites in Toledo-Sylvania OH , they were putting t-1 lines in for Sprint towers. And now I learned no speed or data capacity untill july 29th at the earliest !! The work is done and now waiting for Ericsson. And I know no NV fore me untill 2013

Wish I could drive over and see if anyone is there, or what they're doing, but this site is on a wooded hill and no visibility to the base of it.

As an update: Just got off the phone with Sprint, at the # ryry provided above. They show no outages in my area so were going to try to re-activate my phone, but couldn't do it because I was roaming. They're opening a network ticket and will let me know as things develop further.

LOL! :hee:

 

That should have been their first clue that something was wrong with the network in your area.

Be interesting to see how soon they get to it. Said they'd call me back with the ticket #.

Evening update!

 

Talked to Sprint, via the number that ryry furnished above, and they mentioned that several towers in the area were giving off "alarms." They have begun researching the issue and will get back to me 'soon' to make sure that my issue is resolved.

Strangely enough, my data connection - even when roaming, is EVDO Rev A. But, I don't show any "phone" connection type - such as CDMA2K.

Are your roaming issues recent or have they been happening, consistently, for a while?

You may want to give sprint a call and detail the info to them. If nobody is calling/bitching they may not know anything is wrong. Ryry posted a number earlier in this thread that can get you in touch with the right people.

 

Squeeky(sp?) wheel and all that..

    • Just figured out this is a waste of time. US Mobile and Verizon lock the eSim to the emei while T-Mobile only uses it to see that you have a capable phone, like Red Pocket does with physical sims (although RP does keep track of what phone you are using it on with the emei.)  So @Trip was right in this case on liking physical sims.
    • Verizon has a reputation for being frugal with MVNOs. After looking around, I also decided US Mobile was my best option. People have gotten C band on it.  Hoping for esim for my S21 Ultra.  No luck so far.  Red Pocket does not claim Verizon 5g, although they say Soon!(TM).  I do see some 5g with it. Typically MVNOs are deprioritized, thus I am reluctant to claim truly getting top speeds with one.
    • Did some exploring yesterday/last night and didn't find a shred of C-Band, including with my brand new US Mobile SIM. Did find 4CA CBRS but the site seemed backhaul constrained; both that plus 15x15 B2 and band-locked 2/66 got me 190 Mbps or so.
    • Did some more exploring yesterday/last night and I think I spotted some LAA downtown but didn't get a chance to confirm before it went away in favor of mmW, which also went away pretty quickly. Also saw another n66 site, as well as an n2 site, making AT&T the second carrier to run n2 DSS within a few miles of me. I think at this point they won't be able to advertise anything flashy, but due to the sheer amount of CA they're throwing at customers here they can keep their network at 50+ Mbps until they can deploy both 3.45 and 3.7, and that's probably enough.
