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

Recommended Posts

I understand just feel like Verizion and Att had a faster deployment and even Metro PCS has 4G LTE in Ocala making Sprint the slowest carrier in my area when it comes to data. I know Sprint will be better once this is done but its killing me knowing that I had the first EVO 4G the day it came out June 4, 2010 and i'm still waiting on some form of 4G network from Sprint. Hard times when it takes mins to get a email and can't stream music or videos on the go in daylight and it only works at night and early morning :(

I wish I could apply to be a tech just to help them update the towers in my area and then quit when its complete lol

I can't wait until the day when att, VZW, and tmo are all bogged down and congested because they all chose to half ass their networks by concentrating on certain sites or skipping over sites just to get extra pops of 4g coverage instead of upgrading all their sites like sprint is doing with their build out. Even tmo here is Jacksonville are upgrading their sites pretty fast. We all know (those of us here on s4gru) that when sprint is done working we will have a top notch network with unlimited 4g data and lower pricing than all three carriers including tmo with their value plans and handset financing.

Hi folks new here, just got an iphone 5 so I have spotted 3 towers with LTE in Gainesville one off 34th street near alley katz, one off 39th ave at the girls club and another off Archer rd near sw 91st street, seems to be working pretty well the speed tests are impressive. There might be others but I have not ventured to all the areas. Available to collect info on the sites or pictures if anyone is interested.

We have maps in our Sponsor area that show all the sites in Gainesville. And all over the country.

I hope we get close to that "being done date" I hate the slow speed it makes my gs3 look like my old Samsung Instinct when compared to my wife's Evo Wimax. Having wimax decent (2 to 6mb) both in the conde and now in the house was the reason I cut comcast and home internet about 2 years ago (for which I thank sprint, but now ......i hate it)..... it's a love hate relationship but I'm not ready to get home intrnet if lte is close, and if it will be covered (and by close I do not mean another 2 years SPRINT)

4G is live back in Oakleaf, I mapped what I could in Sensorly on my ride to work this morning. I'll map more on the ride home today.

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:

 

Passed the site again today. It has nv panels installed with 4 ruu per panel. Apparently the workers had to build a support bar to mount the new panels because the existing rack doesnt have a slot to install the panels like some of the existing sites in Jacksonville.

I got a blip of it on i95 exit by the baptist hospital Tuesday. I'm going to be driving by it tomorrow to class so I'm going to map it tomorrow. ;)

Too scared to edit my other one. Tapa talk is nasty. Just noticed we're actually talking about two different sites. Worry not for I will still map my i95 site.

I've been mapping my trip from Middleburg to downtown via Blanding daily. This morning was the first time I caught any 4G north of 103rd. Faint, but it has been mapped at least.

 

Btw, 3G is dog slow from 103rd through riverside at times. I mean dialup slow. Be glad when they get that area done.

Avenues Mall area is lit up, not sure which site it is but I'll be mapping it soon.

 

It's a relatively weak signal, though.

Is there anyway to tell official if you are benefiting from improved 3G through network vision? My site has always been terrible on 3G in daylight hours but in late night and early morning hours I can cap at about 2.10 mbps down and .80 up. I know you listed this site in Ocala as in progress since late January and I haven't seen anyone going to the towers nor do I see any sign of network vision going on. I even called tech support and they said nothing is planned to be done to the tower in the next 90 days but my data speeds in day light hours have improved from 0.10-0.20 down to around 0.20-0.60 down average.

Usually you can tell by steady high upload speeds. Nv upload on 3g seems to average around .8 Mbps, up to 1.05mbps.

Well I'm not seeing upload speeds like that even if I'm at the tower at 5am with a dBm of 50 upload speed max out at 0.80 mbps

The site that this signal is coming from could be the site on Brannan field and kindlewood Dr. The site behind the church has full NV upgrades.

 

Edit: I see the site as accepted on the map. :-D

The site by regal avenues movie theater is online. Got some of it mapped it sensorly. On the ramp onto i95 south, I pulled 14mbps down and 4mbps up. ;)

When I'm at my home and I go into airplane mode to see if lte is around I noticed it starts out with a lte sign but never connects then goes straight to ehrpd. It only happens at my house or when of course when I'm actually connecting to a live lte tower. Does this mean there is a tower near by being blocked or is being upgraded because I have been to all the towers I can connect to at my home and I seeno ruus or anything

Has anyone noticed an issue with 3G/4G handoff? I stream music in the morning during my commute and I notice that whenever there is a need for the 3G signal to handoff to the 4G signal, my streaming is interrupted for about a minute or so. It's annoying! I would think the problem would be the other way around.

Actually, the problem I have is that my phone rarely switches to 4G unless I toggle airplane mode. It's really annoying!

 

To answer your question, though, I haven't experienced the delay from 4G to 3G that you have.

Can a LTE signal travel 6 miles?

I believe so depending on the terrain and the tilt of the panels. Some sites are engineered different than others.

Oh ok because im pretty sure that's the case when i go to work. the closest live LTE tower is about 5.5 miles away

      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.
