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

Recommended Posts

Network speed is holding them back. They need a little push. 15mhz b25 on every tower and more towers getting b41 equipment should fix this. It's all about how fast they are willing to move.

The biggest thing that could help is densifying both B41 and the 15x15 B25 then aggregated them. The results well change. Sprint network needs to be vzw dense.

Sprint on the other hand is 98% of towers with b25 10mhz, b26 5mhz and some still 5mhz b25. No 4x4 mimo, no 256 qam, no CA. It's like Sprint is 3 years in the past.

When I was in Jacksonville FL last year I did see some B41.

Jacksonville has b41 on like 50% of towers. I was talking about where I live. I did see 2 new b41 towers online in Gainesville Fl though.

Well at least B25 is 10x10 instead of 5x5 so that's better than nothing

Could you imagine 4x4 mimo, 256 qam 3xCA b41 and 15mhz b25 all aggregated?

Well here it helped on upload but download is still under 1mbps on a large amount of towers. I see 3 permits for Sprints new 2500ghz/800mhz Antenna. But it's taking a long time for them to do a upgrade. Been sitting since December.

That would be awesome. Unfortunately no device supports B25+3x41. Only B25+2x41

Where are the two new towers for B41 located? I’ve only been on B41 while downtown and close to the University of Florida campus.

One on Archer where previously I could not pick it up. 3xCA too. The other is 441 north where there was no B41 there either.

Like Instagram will barely load bad lol. Usually sub 1mbps...not just inside the mall even outside in the parking lot it’s bad.

Will continue densification can definitely help with getting the speeds back together and coverage too.

You guys underestimate Sprints market share in central Fl. It's big and most of these towers don't have b41. Finding a b41 tower is like playing where's Waldo.

Definitely it's kind of like finding a needle in a haystack?

Was inside of Walgreens just now, and I noticed that my signal was unusually stronger than normal. Did I field test and got B41 with UARFCN 39874. This particular Walgreens does have a Sprint express booth inside if that info helps any. Just wondering if this is B41 signal came from a small cell or possibly magic box? Any info would be great.

My home cell site is getting band 41. Good to see Sprint is still investing in its network while they pursue a merger with T-Mobile.

That’s awesome to see the upgrades happening in Duval county. I was at the St. John’s town center two weeks ago getting my phone fixed at the Apple store. Service was OK, but not great.

I don’t know about Jacksonville but Ocala and Gainesville have been seeing tons of b41 upgrades the past two months. Most seem to be the 10 port 2500/800 set up. With others being 8 port 2500mhz only.

      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.

    • Roaming on band 2 T-Mobile that’s all

    • Yeah that tower is by mercy. I saw yesterday a tower being put up north or Penn and Memorial. 
    • Based on the earlier public released plans and interviews, that would be true on a market by market basis as the new T-Mobile converts B41 to 5G.  What is in the latest plans is anyone's guess.  Going to 5G would provide 100MHz wide carriers which would mean 5 times faster uploads before factoring in 5G speed improvements.  Could one radio handle all of the available B41 bandwidth that Sprint has in numerous cities (up to 8 or 9 20MHz carriers)? Rumors are the Sprint Massive MIMO radios can only handle 6 carriers for a total of 120MHz, but I could be wrong.   My understanding is also that T-Mobile small cells are all fiber fed which would free up bandwidth for phones.  T-Mobile would likely go for different radios hopefully covering the full 194Mhz since they would only want 5G support.  In deals like the Shentel-nTelos and T-Mobile-Metro PCS the FCC has always had the firms either upgrade the firmware to support the new network or to give discounts for new phones.  Your voice will only be heard if you tell the FCC.  The FCC comment period is now open until early December. If T-Mobile drops CDMA, then voice coverage will also be reduced given the vast range of 1x800. (I have observed it up to 50 miles away, but that is in rare cases).  In the Shentel-nTelos merger, LTE coverage was mandated to extend fully over all nTelos 3G coverage.  Once again this is something you should ask for.  Another area of concern is VoLTE support.  I personally think Sprint will only offer it on phones it is currently selling.  Hopefully T-Mobile will go back to phones such as the LG V20 and have VoLTE support.  But always best to ask. https://docs.fcc.gov/public/attachments/DA-18-1155A1.pdf https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/search/filings?proceedings_name=18-197&sort=date_disseminated,DESC
    • Looks like Sprint and T Mobile have been active around my house.   I see at least 3 new small cells that have going up in the last 2 weeks and are active.    I can pull a band 41 signal from 2 of them... the 3rd I'm assuming is Sprint  or T-Mo?   I'm not sure what the T-Mobile small cells look like.   Its very good to see progress.    Does anyone know if the small cells can broadcast more than one frequency?  Ie... if the merger is approved and T-Mo turns band 41 into 5G... then I assume I will not be able to pull that in with my Samsung 9+? 
    • Oh and I assume much of this is was a negotiation to renew their lease.
