Half of them were already on the maps since the last update. But the other half are new.

I need to check around more. I can't wait until Philips Hwy is covered in LTE.

 

Also - My cousins in Starke get LTE before my house. LOL! Now they have bragging rights. :(

I would never publicly claim my family if they lived in Starke. :lol:

I'm sitting at Hurricane Wings on CR210 and I have 4G. It's a miracle.

Looks like someone hit the site on Lem Turner near Callahan and the site in Callahan.

It's spreading. I am just out of reach where I live. hope they can boost it a bit more because I can get it if I walk about a block from my place.

Pretty insane speedtest I got tonight at around Racetrack Road/San Jose Blvd area. Pretty insane that my iPhone on LTE has a faster connection to the internet than it does at home on my Comcast cable modem.

The Creekside site has turned on and now I get a decent signal in my work parking lot and at home. On Cyanogen mod ROM 10.1, when you're connected to LTE, the status bar signals reflect lte connectivity rather than cellular connection. My average or should I say, steady signal at home is -93dBm with ~44 asu. Signal must be good because I pull around 20mbps at home. Not much use, since I off load on WiFi though. My work though, I get around 5mbps. I think the signal there is around -112 dBm or so. LTE connectivity is definitely stronger than my EvDo signal is at home (even converting rssi to rsrp. It must be the new panels and RRUs being mounted on the back. :P

Must be nice my home tower has been in progress for months now. I haven't seen any activity but Jacksonville deployment as a whole is starting to speed up.

Panels were added approx Jan 28th. Came online March 1st. Not sure if that's relevant to other sites completion but I thought I'd throw that figure out there.

 

Very impressed. Everywhere I go on cr 210 now is 4g lte covered...except for the Burger King. :P

There's no panels no work has been done as far as I know.

:( the site by Julington creek bridge (just south of it), had panels on it for approx 2 months before it went live. I think back haul might play the largest factor at the moment.

Not bad 3G for Sprint but on any other major carrier this would be very bad

3G is getting better no doubt, almost 2mb on speed test in the house,...what a change from the .1 mb that I had to endure for the past couple of months....however 26mb in the house gets me jealous never had that other even on Comcast. Hope Sutton Lakes gets covered pretty good, Wimax is decent....wife still has the evolution 4g

      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

      Specifically Metro West area, seeing some really good EVDO numbers. 2.00+ down ~0.6-1.1 up. Sitting at home.

      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.
