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

Recommended Posts

I can get some decent 4g speeds up in Orange Park, but once you get south of Knight Boxx I struggle to get anything on 4G. If you look at sensorly at Blanding and Old Jennings I mapped 4G at 1 bar and barely 1mbps.

 

Until they light that tower at Old Jennings and Brannan Field, that area is stuck with 3G including the new St Vincent's hospital. Backhaul is not an issue with that hospital being there. Just north and you grab Oakleaf and 4G or nw into Orange Park, or east to sr220 and college, or south into Middleburg.

I can't believe we've made it to page 2. JAcksonville is lighting up like mad!

 

Anyone want to start guessing when Jax will be launched as a 4G LTE market?

 

I'm guessing May 15th.

I'm guessing June or July we still have a lot of progress to be made in the Jacksonville city limits.

If you get a chance, locate the Site OD for that location and PM me. Thanks.

I'll check it out this weekend when I'm back in JAX... I've noticed on one of my Galaxy SIII's that stays in JAX that he's getting some 4G use on his line... He doesn't hunt for it like I do... it just starts to work.... I did notice some purple the Sensorly map down on Old St. Aug Rd near the hospital there.. he works next to that so maybe his use is some 4G from there??? No 4G near where our house is yet but close by..

I drive by the hospital on the way to class tonight. I'll map via Sensorly on the way. Hope I pick up 4g then. ;)

Picked up some LTE in some new places in Jax Beach yesterday. Caught it on Sensory. A little on Penman and some on 9th.

I caught 3 to 4 bars of 4G on Old Jennings between Blanding and Brannan Field last night. Nothing this morning though. I wonder if there is any power or equipment at that tower there. Hard to even see from the road and with SR23 road work going on I cannot really just park and walk over.

I saw some working going on today at the tower on the corner of Lem Turner Road and Trout River Blvd. I don't know if it was NV work. I didn't even see the workers installing panels just look like they were doing some welding on one of the racks. Hopefully, they were preparing the rack for Network Vision installs. :lol:

Drove by that site again today and just as I expected the workers are building some type of support beam. The rack itself doesn't have anymore slots for panels. Hopefully it's for a sprint install. I'll try to get pix tomorrow.

All week I've drove by the Old St Augustine Rd site and not once have I gotten an LTE signal from it. I think the Sensorly mapping is either inaccurate or is from another site that's off in the distance. It's possible the site went live for brief testing...

I work by The YMCA On Old St Augustine near the hospital and have yet to see 4LTE and I check multiple times daily.

Has anyone's device been having a hard time picking up eHRPD?

Mine has - but I'm running modded ROMs so I can't tell if that's the culprit or not. lol

Still no LTE in the part of Orange Park where I live. However, a couple of times driving through known strong LTE areas where eHRPD should be prevalent took a long while to pick it up. Even airplane mode didn't help get it any faster. Could be my phone though as I have read about Samsung Galaxy Note 2s in many threads experiencing lag in picking up eHRPD. Or as Robert might say on things...could be one or the other or a combination of both. Sure hope LTE continues to spread quicker throughout all of the Jacksonville Metropolitan area. Hope all of you have a Happy St. Patty's Day weekend.

looks like the Ocala and Gainesville areas and even Jacksonville for that matter have dramatically slowed down again. Meanwhile Tampa has passed even Miami in deployment. Ericsson is not doing that great at rolling out in a timely manner if Sprint was forced to make 250 million pops covered by the end of the year to 200 million that's a big delay.

There were a lot of sites accepted in the JAX market last week. Since each sites is in various states of upgrades, sometimes they don't coincide with steady completion dates. So you may have a whole bunch one week and a small amount for a few weeks. These are being done by humans, not machines. There will be an ebb and flow. What you are observing is not necessarily any failure by Sprint or Ericsson.

 

In my opinion, for a prelaunch market, Ocala has a lot of sites. And has more sites per POP than any other community in the JAX market. And more are coming. It just will keep getting better and better.

Every time I lose eHRPD, it comes back with a reboot.

<br /><br />I've tried cycling airplane mode and rebooting still stuck on EVDO. Maybe its just the area near my home. I test things out when I leave home.<br />

      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.
