Network Vision/LTE - Jacksonville Market (including Gainesville/St. Augustine/Ocala)

Recommended Posts

Since yesterday I have been experiencing dropped data/calls in different locations around town (home and work) and thought it was just my phone acting up. However, I confirmed with a few other friends around town that they have been experiencing the same issues. Is this the beginning of the NV upgrade in Jacksonville?

I doubt it my voice service was down near my home for a couple days and I had an outage according to sprint the problem is fixed now.

Btw I'm in Jacksonville too.

Network Vision is just about to begin in the Jacksonville market. Subcontractors are mobilizing. But I would be surprised if they are doing anything right now that could lead to service disruption.

What is really weird is if I put my EVO in "CDMA/LTE" my data connection bounces from 1X to no data at all and I lose (EVDO) 3G altogether. However, if I put the Network Mode in "CDMA Only" 3G comes back and everything's normal. Until Monday, I have always had it in CDMA/LTE mode with no issues, why now???

What is possible is that eHRPD upgrades could be happening in the market now. Have you ever had a confirmed eHRPD connection before?

Yes when in CDMA/LTE mode it bounces from eHRPD to 1X RTT

All is back to normal. Back on CDMA/LTE mode with solid 3G signal.

Do you get good 3G speeds in Jacksonville just about everywhere or does it suck pretty much everywhere just like the Majority of the Country

I average probably 0.40Mbps. It just depends on the location, some places I get over 1Mbps easy, others 0.03Mbps (mostly at like malls and movie theaters where the load on the towers is extremely heavy)

So excited. I'm at a friends house right now but I'll check my local tower later and see if Ehrpd is active there, too.

What side of town were you on when you connected to ehrpd? Do you leave your phone on LTE/CDMA mode? Also does it cause any significant battery drain if left on? I leave my phone on cdma mode only because I knew it would be a while before I saw any lte.

Leaving it on LTE/CDMA hasn't made any noticeable impact on battery life. I'm sure it uses a little bit more, but like I said, my phone activity varies so it's nearly impossible to know 100% the impact it has. I'm in zip code 32259 btw.

 

You'll only find eHRPD if you're on LTE/CDMA, otherwise you'll only find EvDo RevA.

Thanks man I always leave my phone on cdma only because of my old WiMAX phones searching all day but I know the new LTE phones are better at scanning and uses less battery. I'm still paranoid from the past. I need all the battery life I can get. I'll run my phone in LTE/cdma and see what I can find around town.

So to see that do you randomly happen to look at your connection screen while connected?

I turned on lte/cmda and went into settings > status and it states what mobile network you're connected to. My house has Ehrpd now, too. Jacksonville about to get busy!

So does it stay like that until roll out? And you have seen any tower work in your area?

I've noticed fiber optics being installed at some Jax sites but I haven't seen any lte panels installed yet.

I've noticed on my EVO LTE my data connection doesn't go to 1x or no connection when in a low signal area when connected to eHRPD vs cdma only mode. The data problems were starting to get aggravating. So I guess I'll leave my phone on LTE/cdma for the time being.

Its still the same exact signal as before unless of course the tower was changed over to NV.

      I was in the zip codes of 33993 and 33991 today and did some speed tests on speedtest.net
      I got speeds of about .8 Mbps with peek rates of 1 Mbps. I tried to upload pictures but the uploader said files were to large but even though they were below the maximum file size

      Hello,
       
      I've been following the network.sprint.com site and just in the past year in South Florida there have been over 700+ upgrades to towers in my area (Miami/Fort Lauderdale) with another like 400+ planned! I've been taking screen grabs and adding them up. I know we are on the second tier LTE launch list but could they be doing the upgrades now? I mean I have noticed the speed on my 3G shoot up from unbearable to quite fast in the past 6 months or so. Also the speed of 3G on my new EVO LTE is about double+ of that on my OG EVO! So are these just a lot of 3G upgrades, normal maintenance, Network Vision or new LTE cabinets? When I choose other cities from the drop-down list they have a quarter of the updates that the towers in my area are getting except for say New York, lol. I've tried 4G LTE on my new EVO LTE with no luck. I remember that before the 4G Wimax launch down here in some areas I could get Wimax on one or two towers in certain locations so I thought they might test like last time. Thanks for any answers in advance.

    • No, what I did was out of the box I tried the Sprint set up assistant app and input my info in via app and then wifi. It wasn't working with my current cell phone so I tried it on another and it worked. I also have android.    Regarding the flashing, the same thing happens with me. I think it is not connected all the time. When I am on wifi, it stays green when I am close by, then when I turn off wifi, it flashes so the same thing. I have not had mine for very long, so I'm not sure if it takes time to calibrate itself. I also moved the GPS black box to a different location so it has a better GPS signal.   The green light indicates that it is working and periodically flashes so it is set up, but I just set up mine, so I'm not sure on the specific when it toggles, etc.
    • Your second paragraph confused me a bit.   Also, are you saying you ran the set up multiple times as in you factory reset it and tried again? Or just unplugged and plugged back in and it started working all of a sudden, I also still dont know how it functions. Are we supposed to always be on the wifi 5g that we select through the setup? Or after it goes solid green are we supposed to turn wifi off (The only way I get it to flash green is right after I turn wifi off...I get like 5 flashes of green and then back to solid)....but then eventually I lose a signal    
    • My T-Mobile S20+ finally got the May update about a week ago, but my AT&T S20 Ultra is still saying its up to date on the April update. I wonder if they're just going to skip the May patchs and just combine it all into the June update at this point. AT&T used to be super fast about pushing the monthly updates out with my S9+, I hope that's not changing.
    • The set up took several times and really was a hit or miss for me. I tried the wifi option and it kept timing out, however; when I unplugged the pebble then replugged it in, after the LED light sequence set up it was a solid green light then flashes when connected. I think that when inputting in the wifi info, it showed as timing out, but the info went through b/c I see that it flashes when I am near. The first time it happened I was a bit surprised and just gave up as it not working so I unplugged it then replugged it and the light was green.   My wifi router that connects into the cable is indoors, so that won't work for me. If you cannot use the antenna with the ethernet cord then don't use it b/c it will not work if it cannot lock a GPS signal according to the instructions.
    • I'm guessing that's the case. I spoke with 2 different reps on 2 different dates (both were clearly American) and both told me the launch date was June 12th. The second time I called I asked the guy "are you sure about the June 12th launch date and are you sure that it's the V60". He said yes I'm absolutely sure. He said they wouldn't know anything about pricing until June 12th but he was sure about the launch.
