I was surprised to pick up 4G in Atlantic Beach near Selva Marina this morning. I mapped it in Sensorly. Ill try and drive around up there later and map out some more.

It looks like there it's a tower just north of Selva. I guess that is the most likely source. They are doing the 26.2 with Donna up there now so a lot of the roads are blocked off. I'll see if I can make it up there later this afternoon and map out out.

 

Tested speed and got 4 down and 1 up at the entrance to Selva standing outside.

I see that the tower on 295 north of I10 is now active. Looks like someone mapped it already too. You guys are on your A game.

There are still two sites out toward GA on US 301 that no one has mapped. They've been sitting there for weeks. Don't you guys in JAX spend your weekends out in the Okeefenokee??? :lol:

Well, I won't be driving for a few months (legal reasons) maybe I can go out and have one of those romantic cell site dates ;-) . The wife will drive though.

I saw the rru's and antennas the other day at that site, the Normandy site looks to be ready to go also....... having continuous LTE on 295 would make alot of ppl happy

I'm in Jax Beach so I now have it south of me in Ponte Vedra and north of me in Atlantic Beach. It will be nice when they get it going around the Town Center and UNF area.

Had LTE while leaving Navy Mayport. It disappeared before I could run speedtest but I was driving west on wonderwood.

I believe someone already mapped it on sensorly.

Only a small part is mapped on sensorly. I was up as far as the main gate and had LTE. Didn't take long going down wonderwood before it cut out however.

I picked that up as well going east on wonderwood. After i came over the bridge, no more 4G. I will try to map on sensorly this afternoon or tomorrow morning.

upload was a bit jumpy maybe. really strong around the navy exchange but by the time I got to wonderwood/A1A it was gone.

 

are these download speeds pretty average for LTE?

Maybe there is a cell site on/or near the navy base that is active.

There is no average for LTE, in general. Because LTE performance is directly tied to signal strength. With a very strong signal, it can be in the 30's DL. With a very weak signal, it can be 1-2Mbps. Everything else is somewhere in between.

Finally Atlantic Beach is getting some love.u5u8anyp.jpg

 

At Plaza and May port Road. Mapped it on Sensorly. I got 4G on May port Road from A1A to Atlantic Blvd. On Atlantic Blvd from Florida Ave to San Pablo was all 4G as well, but it returned to 4G after San Pablo going west.

I'm officially surrounded by LTE in every direction now. All just outside a 5 mile radius. Sprint's gotta close the gap soon. :P

Saw some work being done downtown. Tower near the interstate. Not sure if it's a sprint site but I checked the Florida map in the sponsor section that shows all the towers in the Jax market and there is a site a 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.
