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

Recommended Posts

I thought that those 6 panels site. The extra panel was for extra voice capacity. I always thought that was weird. I could be thinking of the wrong thing.

These sites are designed interesting. Its bascially 2 sites on one pole. 2 base cabinets and 2 different pair of sectors. Like one is D01, 02 and 03 and the other is C01, 02 , 03. Same for band 26 values.

I wonder why they decided to have 2 of everything. I thought the purpose of network vision was to eliminate the need for all the redundant equipment. Therefore lowering Operating Expenses.

I was told that the traffic of both of them were ranked in the top 15 of the entire jax market. That was 3 years ago

Can't wait for Gainesville to get some love. What's up with the spectrum swaps. 10X10 B25 would be nice until B41 is live.

2X, I have a Note 5.

 

Probably faster if I had a 3X device.

No, it's just one of the few towers in OP that has 8t8r installed.

I have yet to get over 100mbps on my home tower. Even late night on my note 5. Probably because its the only tower in the entire county with 8t8r. Most towers have had the same capacity for the last 3 years which is crazy. Only Sprint seems to have this problem.

Towers here actually are faster over the weekend. Not by much but like a 1 mbps or 2.

Well looks like Jacksonville may really have a full scale band 41 roll out. I have spotted another install at a site on i95 near Broward Road.

Oh,OK

 

I got excited there for a moment. I work at Bowden and 95 and have been complaining about the capacity constraint over there for sometime.

Im usually in the Bowden Road area atleast once a week. I'll keep my eyes to the skies to see if any work has taken place in that area.

      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.
