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

      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.

    • In some of southern OH they are simply missing Sprint coverage, which has been an on again off again problem for Sprint.  For example there is a macro cell site in Ripley OH along the Ohio River and US 62.  You also get Shentel around Maysville, KY also on US 62.  They do keep tinkering with LTE roaming data.  Still have noticed issues on once you get on AT&T LTE roaming getting off often requires airplane modeing.
    • Should be able to draw some good interest once we get these torn down and figured out. Expect lots of proprietary protocol so finding a comm port on the modem will be tricky if that is your thing. Getting an antenna design going is what I am excited for most. All I can do with the software is try to break it hard enough in the most blatant manner possible.  I have to be nice to this case though, I shredded a MR100 Nighthawk and a couple of magic boxes no problem, I'm trying to keep this thing at least a few more months, so I am excited to see what I can come up with. If you manage to teardown Sprint's premiere 5G home router and set up some externals that would be really neat to see.   Jim @LTEfix is great. We boomer chat on facebook and get confused by all the software, bitmaps and such. He really has a great domestic business going sourcing all this stuff. Thanks to his services I have an elaborate junkyard going and now 3 year Ever Improving LTE Internet Project. 
    • Doesn't look like it. It only supports Band 2, 4, 5, 12, 13, 17, 26, 41, 66, and LTE-U. It also doesn't have CDMA support. That said, U.S. variants of Samsung phones tend to have U on the end of their name while international variants tend to be F. This is the international variant.
    • Something interesting I discovered is it still shows voice roaming in most of these areas. 
    • I'm noticing some new giant dead spots along I-29 in ND now. Central MN as well. Also SE MN, central MI, southern OH, parts of KY, VA, NC, SC, GA. It's like they just went in and carved some areas out. Seems like they cut out along major interstates. Maybe a cost saving measure to remove roaming?
