I mapped out some additional 4LTE love on the Northside. New Berlin to Cedar Point.

 

Let's hope there are plans to light up Bayard near the hospital. 3G is brutal.

 

On a side note....installed CM10 on my Galaxy S3 this week. I find myself toggling airplane mode at work just to get my 3G back. I had to do the same on New Berlin. Once I got 4LTE on New Berlin, the SG3 handled it fine and the handoff from 4LTE to 3G was seamless.

Hello everyone Im brand new to this forum. I just have one question.

 

Has anyone been to or close to Nas Jax and gotten an lte signal. I want to make sure I can get a signal there before I commit to switching to sprint.

You can go to Sensorly.com and see where people have gotten signal. Welcome!

I've personally had signal on 295 across the buckman bridge near the Roosevelt exit but I haven't been near the base. Most users here uses sensorly and map their trips. Maybe someone in that area will confirm that it is or isn't service in that area.

No LTE on NAS Jax. Not sure when or if that will happen. I have LTE near me in Orange Park but still not at my house. The wait for LTE in both locations continues for me.

It's a question of when, not if. And we don't have the answer for the when.

from personal experience both Sprint and T-Mobile are basically worthless while on NAS Jax, particularly as you approach the eastern side. Verizon might be your best bet for NAS Jax service.

Service at Nas Jax is bad for all carriers. It just depends where you are at the time. Every carrier has their places where their service is dismal on the base.

I think we're getting there on Atlantic & Keenan. I used to get horrible 3g maybe 200kb average at best, but since yesterday it has been a lit better around 1mb ...3g with a 1.6 MB sitting on the couch....hopefully lte will be here soon

I just got 1.8mb down and .82 up and I'm near the northern end of Kernan. I haven't seen anyone work on the tower up here so I expect these are just normal speeds for off-peak hours :-(

Well it is weird cause it was good speed all day... and right noe it is cloudy like he'll and again still almost 1mb. I mean last week I wouldvwait for pages to load (and got time outs) any time of the day...yesterday I downloaded over 1 gig while trying different 4...jelly bean and ics on my old evo 4g (it's gonna be my dedicated garage mp3/radio player)

Well the real test is attempt the speed test again at about 530-6pm tonight and see what happens.

 

Usually it'll just time out or get .01 download and upload speeds, basically useless. I'll try it again as well during that time frame.

Right on my couch...low end speeds seem to be at 300kb -500k.. I'm in Sutton lakes complex, up from Keenan on Atlantic, across CarMax......sorry I'm too excited but... ever since I got the phone I had 0 to 150kb with an average of 50kb

Well up here at the top end of Kernan I just pulled 1.04 down and .22 up with a ping of 132.

 

Better than normal for sure. Websites are loading, google maps actually works. I still haven't seen anyone work on this tower though.

Just spotted a completed tower. On the corner of Edgewood and beaver street. Looks like all the nv work is complete but no LTE active at the time.

Okay...my frustration is at an all-time high. I work downtown and I used to be able to stream music, but for the past few weeks, I have not been able to with a consistent connection. I have contacted Sprint 4 times about this, but to no avail. The first two times, there supposedly was some kind of outtage that was supposed to be fixed last Friday. I contacted them twice today and the first time, the network provisioning didn't go through and the 2nd time, the tech had me update the profile (my PRL wouldn't update). Pandora worked for 5 minutes. Then I switched to Amazon Cloud Player and it worked for 5 minutes than became unusable (every 10-20 seconds it was buffering) and it's driving me batty.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Maybe the towers have been getting hit harder in that area lately.

It seems like everywhere I've been going lately sprints speeds have been very slow, even slower than usual. It often leads me to think it's being worked on. :P

Well it must just be the particular tower I'm on, because down at Atlantic/Kernan at about 6pm data was absolutely useless. Websites wouldn't load, speedtest timed out. After attempting speedtest about 13-14 times it finally ran and did around 600ms ping time with a 0.01 download and 0.0 download. Which is pretty much normal for Sprint at rush hour.

 

Judging by apparent signal strength on my phone and locations of Sprint towers I'd wager I'm on a different tower than here at home where I pulled half way decent 3G yesterday at the same time.

Yeah, just gotic a 1.6 mb domn...IT is after 10 pm but, never ever got this speed before. The most I got was about 200kb in my bedroom at real no peak hours (3-4 am)

 

I hope lte is close

Probably. The tech said something about one of the towers around here "wasn't 100%." I don't know what that means though. I gather that whatever they are doing around here isn't 100% completed or repaired. At least, that's what I hope.

      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.

    • I just built this PoE and USB 3 upgraded WG3526 with an LM960 in it today   I am testing it on the two Kathrein antenna I put on my TrashMonster™ tower. It works great so far. I use 3 foot of LMR400 7/16 DIN male to SMA male. The cards are pretty on par with each other. They both get lots of aggregation combos, the Quectel is Eng samples only and the LM960 is on production revision 2, model A18 now. IMEI manipulation is more for Quectel if you need that for your plan, Telit I haven't figured that part out yet. The 960 is mPCIe so no adapters for most embedded router slots, the EM20 is M.2 so unless you get one of those fancy new routers I mentioned above you need an adapter. What other questions do you have for me?
    • How do you get your Verizon SIM to connect to LTE without active service? Mine will only connect to CDMA.       Pixel 2 can do NSG, but Pixels require a licensed/pay copy of NSG to band lock. Other phones supposedly don't. Google disables Qualcomm diagnostic mode, so NSG has to jump through some hoops to get it working. On the 4 they don't even include the driver for it, and you have to flash the userdebug vendor image every month. Pixels are fantastic for NSG and logging, except if you need to band lock and don't have a license. No other way to lock bands.   A lot of people in the NSG community really like one plus phones. They support a lot of bands, and play well with NSG. But I'm not sure how good Sprint support is with their older models (ie CDMA).   If band locking isn't super important to you, you could get a Pixel 3a since they're on sale. They support dual SIM, so you can log on two networks at once with Cellmapper. SCP doesn't support dual SIM yet, and seems to report data for the active data SIM. Neighbors will show both SIMs though usually.   Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk      
    • I use NSG SCP and Cellmapper on a bootloader unlocked rooted moto g7 power unlocked. New for $179 on Amazon (many models but can give a link if needed). Used on T-Mobile and AT&T. ..
    • Wifi calling uses your internet connection to route just the the call, not SMS or MMS (thanks Sprint....). VoLTE uses the carrier's LTE data connection to route the call and allows for SMS and MMS at the same time. When on a wifi call, you can still receive SMS and MMS but not if you have a shit cell signal (doesn't even matter if you are on a call or not, with a shit signal you will still have trouble anyway). The Pebble is used to boost your cell signal so your SMS and MMS will be more reliable (and your LTE data connection). For actual internet use, you are correct, you can just use your wifi.   Femtocell for the Home For the consumer, Femtocells can be used to transform an already existing internet connection into useable cellular service. It may sound counter-intuitive, but there are many people in the United States who have access to high-speed broadband but who are unable to make phone calls from anywhere inside their home, and for people facing that situation, femtocell technology may be their best option. Here’s why: Femtocells operate like a tiny cellular base station, literally tiny, at about the size of a cordless phone’s base station, and can be easily attached to your home internet network modem. The Femtocell then transforms your home broadband connection into a usable cellular signal that can be used to make phone calls and send and receive SMS text messages. In a scenario like this, a femtocell system may be the absolute best option, especially for consumers who are unable to utilize Wi-Fi calling with their current contacts and cellular provider. Most individuals, especially those who run a small business from their home, still require a reliable cellular signal in order to handle their affairs, and a Femtocell network can provide 5 bar connectivity from anywhere within the home. Unfortunately, this cellular connectivity does come at a cost. Because the Femtocell uses the existing broadband to create the cellular signal, there can be a noticeable loss of broadband speed in certain situations where phone calls and web browsing (especially uploading or downloading) behavior is occurring simultaneously. However, if your home office broadband connection is currently 50 Mbps or faster, then your internet connection should remain perfectly steady, even if you decide to use both at the same time.
