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?

Jacksonville is now showing as an official Spark market!   (Not that anyone needed to tell you that Band 41 was around )

Just tried out T-Mobile for laughs (Test Drive, which is a kind of cool attraction.)  Anyways, I've come to the conclusion that Sprint is better here, coverage-wise.  I'd rather have a reliable method

I'm safe. Sprint holding up well. 4.5 million without power. The eye of the storm coming straight for Marion county with 100mph winds. I hope I have a home to go to when this is over.

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?

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)

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.

Let me know what you find!

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

      Specifically Metro West area, seeing some really good EVDO numbers. 2.00+ down ~0.6-1.1 up. Sitting at home.

      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.

    • ⚠️ Important heads up for the Beta Crew: the next SignalCheck beta is going to have some significant changes behind the scenes that will likely result in some bugs/instability. I have spent many hours working on it over the past few days, and certainly won't release something with obvious bugs. But I wanted to give an early heads up in case someone wants to hold off on updating immediately. I don't know when it'll be ready to try.. hopefully Soon™. The changes aren't exciting on the end-user side, but behind the scenes it reduces redundant routines and inefficient code. More importantly, it helps streamline my ongoing efforts to support dual-SIM devices. I am hopeful it will reduce memory usage and occasional ANRs, but some of that is so ambiguous it's hard to know for sure.
    • Have you seen any improvement after adjusting that power setting? I fear that more and more devices are going to run into similar issues.. Android is really focusing its efforts on power saving and background access, which has a direct impact on SCP of course. Unfortunately not only have I not changed much that would intentionally cause this behavior, there isn't much I can do about it right now. The OS is trying to make sure that rogue apps aren't wasting power, but the side effect is limited options for apps like SCP that legitimately exist to frequently run in the background.
    • Not working out very well for Mexico yet.
    • Did some more mapping between 110 and 165 yesterday. Connected to 7 new B41 sites, only one of which I was able to locate. Three sites I spotted with n41 antennas several months ago still aren't broadcasting B41 (47004, 43911, 43918). I wonder if they're waiting to upgrade them with 6449s. Also, spotted a site that looked to be recently upgraded (41956) with 6449s that wasn't yet broadcasting B41. B71 had been moved to 140190 on that site (the first 14xxxx eNB I've spotted), so it appears as though eNB splits are still occurring. Including the site on E110 and Lexington I spotted a couple days back, that brings us up to ~12 sites spotted between 110 and 165.   On another note, successfully roamed on Sprint (310-120) yesterday. For reference, my device is an unbranded Android that doesn't have access to either 311-490 or 310-120. Sprint keep site, perhaps?     Regarding upgraded oDAS nodes, maybe I totally missed something but the vast majority of them now seem to be equipped with LTE-LAA. Pulled this off a node on Edgecombe and 162 (59823).
