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

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know about the Gainesville and or Ocala areas. I havent seen much talk about those areas. I work in Gainesville, but live in Ocala. Cant wait for 4G at home.

 

There are sites being converted for certain in Gainesville. They can be seen on maps in our Sponsor section. Ocala sites are probably starting work very soon too.

it does seem odd to send someone so far south in another Market. But Thanks :-)

Yeah, the site itself I could find in any of the other contractors permit pulls, but I was so sure it had to be one that I knew already. It wasn't until I went to the Clearwater or largo permitting site I found this guy who was one that I hadn't heard of. From a business view I wouldn't drive down here with a crew of 3-4 people for 3 days in a row, I also wouldn't pay for a hotel either but if it was for multiple jobs then yes I would. I could make money off multiple jobs like that. Where this site is though I have not seen any other work done.

Sweet. Do you ever go out towards the beaches? It has to be some converted sites out that way. I'm going to donate tomorrow so I can get access to the interactive maps.

I've noticed that my 3G signal seems to be slightly better and data actually functions while at Mayport where as before when inside data was basically non existant. Is this a possible sign of LTE heading to Mayport soon? Seeing the LTE finally on this side of the river is encouraging.

Looks to me they are doing like the Chicago market starting around the city and then work their way in. Theres also 2 more sites around the top part of the ring (ring) that are not active yet.

There are some new towers in the area. Are you in the same section of the building? I was at the dentist earlier and in the lobby (brick building), I got 0.2 mbps speeds but by the window on the other side of building, I got 1.6mbps DL. Depending on the building structure and site location, speeds can vary greatly.

Haha, any info you got on St Johns County would be epic!

 

In the meantime, I'll continue to map everything I discover on Sensorly. :P

I'm not really sure if that's a sign of nv upgrades because as you can see on sensorly the contractors have been jumping all around the city. Usually what ever site gets its back haul upgraded first the contractors go there and start the upgrade work.

Where are you getting this information? Western Wireless was a subcontractor for Alltel, I think.

I saw west towers truck back on Oct 16th, when they were installing panels on the bay meadows tower. You'll have to share these records. lol

Same building. AT&T and Verizon folks get upwards of 15mb/sec speeds and sit there streaming YouTube like nothing. Tmobile works pretty darn quick in certain parts of the building but their towers must be pretty far. Sprint usually you can't even get google voice text messages or even simple websites to load. In fact the phone just sits there and drains its battery trying to talk to the network. Having Internet surfing abilities yesterday was significantly changed from before although its still dog slow.

In a big building like that you may not be experiencing what other people are on other providers are until LTE 800 rolls out. Once LTE 800 rolls out (no one knows the schedule of which towers and such yet.), Sprint will be top dog. We do know it'll start sometime mid-2013 though.

 

Sometimes, if the building is crowded enough, Sprint will add repeaters throughout it.

Unfortunately I'm on an iPhone which unless I'm mistaken only supports CDMA 800 but not LTE 800 :-(

It's okay, none of Sprints devices support LTE 800 yet. I've got an upgraded available July 1st for that reason. :P

How come none of the Jacksonville market are not showing up as complete even though we verify that they are active?

      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.
