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

Recommended Posts

Honestly you never know. The fiber has to be connected to the site so once that gets connected it should be close! Keep an eye to cabinets!

I don't ever get a chance to go check it out lol. They're always working on it (even on weekends.). Hope it gets finished soon. Any chance it could be done by next week? I saw them installing back haul fiber last week and I also see the fiber running from the bottom to the top of the monopole to the panels. The only thing I haven't confirmed yet is cabinet installation.

 

Even so, I'll be checking on it nearly a daily basis and I'll let you guys know when lte is live.

As long as the fiber is hooked up to the cabinet, panels are up and connected to cabinet and inspections pass could, but lots of variables in there to say for sure.

I may be able to get pictures this upcoming Sunday. As of today, there's two guys sitting at the panels working on it.

Looks like cabinets are hooked up, backhaul is installed (the line from the tower site to the road), panels are installed. I wonder what's keeping them from turning it on now. Maybe more cabinet work?

 

Anyways, I found out there's 3 RRUs per panel on this site, not 6. I guess I saw the guy's feet the other day and jumped to the conclusion they were RRUs. lol! I didn't get very close when I made that observation, though.

Good question. I'm not a sponsoring member, so I don't get the maps. It was about 2 miles south of the 210 exit.

I was told by a tower crew installing the NV equipment that ericsson has to come and migrate the new NV equipment into the network. (NOTE: Daytona Beach has had a site with all the equipment installed since Nov 1st and Ericsson still hasnt gotten around to it) (NOTE: North Ocala's install was completed in early Dec and Ericsson still hasnt gotten to it either.) Just saying in my experience I would'nt hold my breath on it being fast.

I don't know because two sites in Ocala went live this week, I wish I knew what there process was for making a site live and how long it takes and why ERICSSON takes so long to complete a sites migration.

Is it me, or does it seem like this whole area's build out is moving at a snail's pace?

 

And when was the last time you heard about a market going live via Sprint announcement?

 

Sprint has announced sites that will have 4G, but none lately that have actually been announced as live.

Jacksonville is definitely the slowest moving Florida market that is in progress. However, there are dozens of sites out there being worked on. So you know there will be more coming soon. It's just a slow start.

Thought so, especially after the recent wildfire like spread of LTE in Orlando starting in the East and spreading Westward across the city. Orlando has had somewhat quick expansion it seems while here in Jax it seems like they've hit a barrier of some sort.

Not a barrier, per se. They are still working on dozens of sites in the market. And each site is turned on the moment it is ready. Sometimes the timings of completion don't flow for consistent turn ons. Lots of variables.

Looks like the site in Lake Butler is live. I started mapping it on Sensorly this morning.

Spoke to an ex-Navy guy who now works for Ericcson. His crew was doing towers here in Jacksonville but they got ordered along with another crew to go to Orlando. They weren't told why just to get down to Orlando for the next 6 months. Hope that doesn't mean a slow down for us here. Getting tired of this dial up speed 3G so hoping things get moving here again..

My site has been offline all day today. It had panels installed last week. I wonder if its in the final stages of being migrated to nv.

Oh yay!!!!!! Starting to hear the jeopardy theme every time I try to get on my phone....

 

On a hopefully good note I saw some white trucks and vans by a tower in the ocean way area I'll try to check it out some more tomorrow

      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.
