The tower on Blanding and old Jennings is already built. It's the flag pole on the corner. BTW clay county has more active towers than any other area in the Jacksonville market. I ditched my WiMAX phone back in May. I don't miss out at all. WiMAX was a big headache and not worth the battery drain. It won't be long before LTE is more wide spread.

Is the tower live? I don't see any equipment on it, and when I am at the intersection there I don't get anything better than ok signal, I do get a stronger signal as I get closer to the one in Oakleaf.

That tower at Old Jennings is owned by Sba Towers III LLC

http://map.sbasite.com/SiteInfo.aspx?SiteCode=FL14573-A

 

The regular network vision site shows (of course it does not show LTE) no work on that site, but does show:

The tower up near College/Blanding had a voice upgrade.

The tower near Oakleaf Plantation/Brannan Field had a voice upgrade.

The tower off of 220 had voice/data/capacity.

 

Does anyone live near Branan Mill Plantation and/or Whisper Creek and confirm strength if any?

Opensignals shows nothing.

Its one of those sites with the hidden panels. I don't believe it had nv upgrades. It's 1x and evdo only.

Shands Bridge is covered now, too. Most of the action is in Orange Park. I wonder if the same crews that'll work in 32259 are doing the Orange Park sites, then moving over to the east a bit. :P

I got a hit on my phone last night according to my LTE record. I traveled across the hart bridge down university Blvd then down Atlantic to the Walmart on Kernan. So somewhere on that stretch my phone connected to LTE.

 

Also I connected to a site for the first time without cycling airplane mode. I updated my EVO LTE to jelly bean and it looks like HTC increased the scan times. I'll test the connectivity when I go back to work Tuesday and connect to a LTE site.

Hart bridge is all lit up on sensorly.

Bleh, I really want the Racetrack and 13 tower in 32259 to go live! I'm used to nearly ubiquitous outdoor coverage in my part of Boston.

Interesting you say that because I'm in 32259, too. The site you're talking about is about complete. The new antennas are already installed and I saw them installing back haul last week. It's only a matter of time. :P

I'm on cr 210, and none of the sites on 210 have even started yet. :'(

I think backhaul might already be connected. 3G is consistently above 1 mbps. When I was last here, during the summer, getting 600 kbps was a nice surprise. My signal isn't the greatest, either. It varies between -80 and -100 dBm in different parts of my house. Hopefully they're just in the last stages of testing LTE.

There is a big tower off wells in the industrial loop I saw some guys working at the other day....

I drove past the site that shows in progress on Soutel Dr and I didn't see any panels or any workers could that mean that the backhaul is install and work is ready to begin?

In progress sites mean its been confirmed by another user that work has started there. Sometimes it'll be backhaul installation and sometimes it'll be antenna work or even new cabinets.

Not necessarily. About half of the In Progress reports come from Sprint sources. They are more likely to be able to report early in Progress work, like backhaul work and equipment deliveries. Our members are more likely to report panel installs and other more visible work. So it can go either way.

I'm going to go check out JA74XC047 today and see if there's been any work done.

Well, I saw a truck drive into the site area nearly 3 weeks ago and I figured they were about to start. I checked today and nothing. :x

 

I'm becoming inpatient because every single other carrier has 4g lte (or HSDPA+ speeds) in my area. Hopefully Ericsson jumps the gun and pushes harder than other OEMS

I was impatient to until I actually connected to LTE. Now I can wait. I can't wait for cdma 800 personally most buildings I enter I lose signal.

I wouldn't mind LTE 800, either. Maybe then I can get some signal at work. :P

Right now I have to flash a verizon PRL to make phone calls while I'm at work. I wished Roam Ctrl worked on 1900 mhz band too.

I must say since this jb update my evo LTE connects to LTE sites almost instantly. Made me fall in love with it again. Any way back on topic. There's a couple sites marked in progress I wonder how many more site will get worked on in the coming months.

I picked up a signal on I95 near Bowden and university. I don't know of its mapped yet. I couldn't do it because Iwas driving

There's a blip of LTE on the riverside of JulingtonCreek river. West of the neighborhood, River Oaks Plantation. My friend lives there, so I'll check it out sometime this week and map it, of course. :D

      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.

    • Wrong perks program. This is akin to the Sprint Works program, where Sprint and your company have a bit of a deal that gets you a discount on your line. For example, I have a $5 discount for the time being thanks to the Sprint Works deal with my employer. 
    • The *vast* majority of markets had at least 60Mhz deployed, more if you count small cells and magic boxes. There were only a few areas where they were limited to 40Mhz due to spectrum issues.
    • I was in Greenville, NC last week and finally go to experience T-Mobile's network somewhere that wasn't New York for an extended period of time. Just like NYC, T-Mobile's 600MHz spectrum is extremely underdeployed. There are about 15 T-Mobile sites in the entire city and T-Mobile has deployed 600MHz on only 1 of them. Sprint on the other hand has tri-banded nearly every site. Another issue is that Greenville has pretty bad site density on all networks but the issue is exacerbated on T-Mobile by the fact that they lack Band 12 licenses for pretty much all of Eastern NC. The only lowband license they have is 600MHz and they haven't really put it to use at all. The good news is that speeds weren't that bad at all. Speeds were around 20Mbps on average with peaks of about 65Mbps. Deploying 600MHz likely isn't a priority for T-Mobile in Greenville and the towns surrounding it because on their end the network performance looks fine however, deploying 600MHz would fill in a lot of coverage gaps and give a much more reliable signal overall. Until then, Verizon and AT&T will have T-Mobile beat on coverage thanks to them having lowband on every site and U.S. Cellular will have them beat because U.S. Cellular has a bunch of extra sites that no other carrier uses in the region that provide them with much better coverage than any other carrier in the area.
    • Think T-Mobile will bid on this 5G spectrum?: https://www.defense.gov/Newsroom/Releases/Release/Article/2307275/white-house-and-dod-announce-additional-mid-band-spectrum-available-for-5g-by-t/ “The White House and Department of Defense announced today that 100 megahertz (MHz) of contiguous mid-band spectrum, in the 3450-3550 MHz band, will be available for 5G by the end of the summer.“ More info: https://breakingdefense.com/2020/08/pentagon-gives-up-huge-slice-of-spectrum-for-5g/ “The White House formally made the request in April. Roughly 200 technical experts from all four armed services, the Office of Secretary of Defense, and the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy studied the problem for 15 weeks. The FCC, which has already endorsed the plan, will start auctioning the spectrum off in December 2021, Kratsios said, with commercial use beginning “as soon as mid-2022.”” I’m sure AT&T/Verizon will fight hard for it.
    • My bet is that TMo is having to pay $0 for those deals. They're intro-level promos to drive traffic to those partners, broadcast across TMo's entire customer base. Wouldn't be surprised if the money goes in the opposite direction, easily paying for whoever actually runs the program.
