Information about S4GRU Sponsorship levels and how to become a Sponsor

Recommended Posts

I donated and still don't have access. I just want to see if I have LTE in Cedar Falls, IA yet.

I only received one donation this morning from PayPal, and it wasn't for you. Please send me a message with the donation information, or forward to me the email your received from PayPal to s4gru@herronweb.com.

 

Thanks.

Robert (site admin) is currently in the moving process so membership level changes might take a little longer than usual.

 

EDIT: Robert beat me to it, kinda.

Just sent some dough your way! I love the forum site and would like to become active in providing Information. I have a Sprint Tower that I think has NV upgrades on it and will shoot some pics over.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for a lot of good info.  Sent a small donation, will look at sending more when I can (gotta love having all kinds of emergencies and big house repairs at once).

 

Anyway, thanks for all of the information and technical insight, it's nice to be able to keep on top of things and know what's going on.

I didn't see your donation come thru PayPal. Message me the details and I will get your account upgraded. Thanks for supporting S4GRU.

If I upgrade to premier, is there information for 800 LTE rollout a to specific sites? What about information regarding if a site has had backhaul upgrades? Thanks.

You can tell if a site has had its backhaul upgraded because LTE will be live. As for LTE 800, we do have info on many Samsung markets and and a few Ericsson markets in the Premier Sponsor section. I have more info to post in there, but will not be able to for probably another week or two.

Figured I should donate since I've gotten so much good info from this site. Plus with sites actually going live in the Phoenix east valley area it will be good to know what sites have been accepted so that I can plan some Sensorly mapping trips...

You were upgraded immediately.  You don't need a new password once you become a Sponsor.  You should be able to get right into Sponsor forums now.  If you still have a problem, sign out, close your browser and relaunch it and sign back in.

Robert, did you get my donation? I didn't get a message. Or is that only for the first few?

I did. We do upgrades immediately. But I usually don't get around to sending thank yous for a few weeks. I'm really buried with thank yous now. I think I have to go back to early August at this point. :blush:

 

Thank you for supporting S4GRU!

I just donated! :D I felt that I needed to donate for all the help and info I received from this site and its community. I would've done it earlier but those college tuition fees can really leave your wallet empty :P

Thanks Rai.  You have been with us for a long time.  Even before there was S4GRU.com.  I will never forget that!  I still remember your report of the WiMax Protection Site in Kankakee, Illinois.  Good stuff!

Been browsing the site for a long while. I finally decided to join. Im in Shreveport, LA where we are having the Tri band issue. This is not a launched LTE area but LTE is being turned on gradually. Felt I needed to spend more time here and access the sponser maps. Donated a bit ago and look forward to getting upgraded and getting more information and helping my fellow sprint users. Thanks.

Just made a small donation today.  Didn't put my user name in.  Email account from paypal different, so don't know if I need to do anything to get it updated.  Please advise & Thanks for the great site & information.

Just sent my donation. If I need more to be a premier let me know. I'll probably do another in a month or so. Ive learned a few things and stuck with Sprint because of this site and now I am happy I did.

I can't answer your questions about PRL's, but I can help out with the sponsor info.

 

Any amount of money donated makes you a sponsor, and that membership lasts for 6 months from your most recent donation. In order to become a premier sponsor, you must accumulate a donation total of at least $100 (although, due to a holiday promotion, you can become a premier sponsor by donating a total of $75 if you donate by midnight tonight). Premier sponsorship does not expire and you get all the benefits a regular member, a sponsor, and a premier sponsor get.

 

Hope this helps!

      I'm REALLY frustrated trying to figure out how to become a premiere sponsor. I assume this means a certain dollar amount of donation... I already donated a couple times for the 'basic' sponsorship, but would LOVE to be a premiere sponsor...yet I can't find anything on how much I need to donate to do it. Having to jump through such hoops to donate money makes it really easy for me to just want to give up and move on to something else.
       
      I'm sure the info is here somewhere, but a search of the forums turned up nothing, and I can't seem to find an email address to contact the admins to send a question, which would also be useful.
       
      This seems to me to be a HUGE hole and likely throwing away a lot of money by not making this information easily accessible. You'd get a lot more donating members if you maybe put a couple notes below the donation button so people have an idea of what they need to donate to get to x access level, or a link to a page that says if you donate this you get this.
       
      With that suggestion in place.... what's the answer? :-)

      I would like to become a sponsor and rather pay using bitcoin. Will you be accepting bitcoin in the future?
       
      One site that may be able to help you accept bitcoin is https://bitpay.com/

    • You obviously didn't see my second screen shot. Also M-MIMO has been great with cell edge performance especially on uploads.
    • But he posted a second screenshot that showed that his upload speeds were consistently around 20Mbps no matter the time of day while his download speeds fluctuated a lot more.
    • Like I said, anecdotal. All of those speeds tests where done in the span of 10 minutes past midnight, in (which is safe to assume) the same location and with extremely great signal strength/LOS. The problem with upload speeds in the 2.5 Ghz band is that the UL speeds dramatically fall off whenever you move away from the tower. Good speeds are possible, but on a few select areas near towers.
    • If your talking the Adjust LT timing Advance, no it's not on. I will give you some samples over the next few days.
    • Do you have the TA correction option enabled under Preferences? What I really need to do is get a decent sample size of B41 TA reports without the correction factor enabled, and record what the app shows and what the correct distance is. That would allow me to calculate what the proper correction value would be. TA is a funny beast on TD-LTE, I have always had a correction factor applied to the raw value.. so with the option enabled it's applying a correction to the correction.. 🤯
