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

Recommended Posts

 

Seems to me that if the tower isn't with in a mile of the store. You can't get a decent signal inside. On CDMA on sprint or VZW 1900mhz spectrum even when I tried VZW out for a few days I couldn't get LTE signal inside the very buildings where I couldn't connect to EVDO.

Surprisingly, T-Mobile has nearly perfect reception and signal strength in my store. The tower is roughly a football field away from my store. Verizon also has a site there but the penetration isn't as strong as T-Mobiles is. Of course, Verizons sites in my area are 1900mhz only due to the Altell merger. Verizon does have excellent LTE there, probably due to the sub 1ghz spectrum. (isn't verizons LTE on 700mhz or 850?)

I work at a Publix and unfortunately, it's made out of clay bricks painted over. Clay kills RF. :(

 

I've noticed many Publix now have WIFI for customers to use inside the stores... handy when the mobile network is blocked...

Yep.

 

Winn Dixie does too (at least the one that I occasionally go to does).

Both WD and Publix has WiFi. Walmart doesnt have it at the moment. I spend a lot of time in grocery stores and around the city and 1900 just doesn't penetrate those buildings well. Maybe when CDMA 800 comes online we will see some relief.

:( Third day in a row with no 4g LTE here at Old St Augustine Rd. That two weeks we had it was great!!!

 

I'm assuming they are working on it.

Well a tower near my house had 3g accepted and now when I go to the barbershop I went from roaming on 1x to 3 bars of signal. So I guess what everyone was saying a true about the improved signal.

According to sensorly the site in Ocala at maricamp is live funny because I was at that tower at 4am this morning and it was 3g only but the panels are there and the cabinets are too ill check in a few hours after work I guess

I pulled 4G near Old Jennings/Blanding Blvd area this morning and mapped it with sensorly. 5/2Mb speeds which is pretty dang impressive for this area.

I picked up LTE signal on 103rd street on the opposite side on i295 heading towards Brannan Field Road. Couldn't figure out what tower the signal is coming from. At first I thought it was coming from the Chaffee Road tower that was completed last week. After riding toward the Chaffee tower this afternoon realized that the tower wasnt active. So I assume the signal is coming from the tower on Collins Road that was recently accepted.

I get full LTE signal in the 103rd area close to Chaffee rd. also, the tower at Normandy and Fouraker has lit up LTE as well, max DL speeds of 22 DL and 8.5 UP. very happy sprint customer here

The 103rd signal has to be coming from the collins road site. Also there's a another completed tower by the Kmart on Normandy. The map shows 3g completed.

I started receiving LTE before getting off the highway. So far I've gotten it everywhere in the Normandy area

New tower live in OP, solid 4G from College all the way to 295 on blanding. I think it might be the tower on Kingsley Ave. that is live.

Could be. I bounce from 4G to 3G to 4G (and 0 to 5 bars) on old jennings between blanding and branan field.

 

It doesn't help that the water utility is killing reception in that area with their wireless communication. It is also stuck between the one on kingsley, the one off of 220 and the one out of Oakleaf.

 

If anyone else in the area gets a chance, can you confirm what I see there? I want to open another network ticket on the signal.

I believe the tower on boulevard near shands hospital has LTE active when I'm on I95 near that area I'm picking up a strong LTE signal

Looks like the tower by Riverside Park is about to come up. Phone keeps going to LTE but there is no traffic passing. Full signal bars, about -74 dBm. After a few minutes it reverts to 3g, but it says EvDo under network type instead of eHRPD. I'm using a Note 2 FYI. It will do go back to LTE if I turn airplane mode off and on.

I rode across the fuller warren bridge and saw NV install on the top of the GHG building on oak street so that's where the signal is most likely coming from. Also I spotted a crew working on a tower on the corner of 103rd and shindler drive.

Mayport is pretty well lit up with LTE now.

 

Discovered a downside however, with the poor building penetration where I work my phone's battery gets drained extremely quickly as it attempts to maintain the 4G connection.

 

First world problems :-(

 

Now Jax beach needs some love!

I haven't been out towards the beaches lately but I wouldn't be surprised if the sites are already done but not accepted yet

Saw a site being worked on in Orange park. Behind the Walgreen on Blanding past the BJ's.

Jax beach finally got some love!!! I don't know which tower but I noticed LTE strong and fast up around the 13th ave north and 3ed street area. Kind of near mellow mushroom.

      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 was just trying to see if b41 on my Sprint phone was prevalent while driving to pick up a pizza. While it was available outside my condo, coverage died out quickly west of A1A and Sprint's B25 took over. B26 inside the pizzeria. No B41 until about a quarter mile west of A1A going east towards home. Probably a B41 small cell. No T-Mobile bands appeared on my Sprint phone anywhere on that trip and scant B41 coverage. I do believe T-Mobile has much better coverage on this route. I can't wait to see what T-Mobile will do but so far nothing has changed.
    • I don't eat fast food. In fact, calling it "food" is a tremendous but laughable error.  Yuck. No, put the money elsewhere. 
    • And TMobile has quite the temporal leg up on deploying said mid band, pre-existing spectrum with an already well seeded device portfolio that can take advantage of their 2.5 mid band spectrum. Will the other 2 eventually catch up? Probably. Money does talk, after all. But not before TMO enjoys its solitary vacation for 18 to 24 monts!
    • They will certainly want to bid on some, but I suspect they will be more interested in more n41 spectrum when it goes to auction. FCC needs to get moving if this will be done before January 20th will a possible political change.  Thete are many areas where they only have 55Mhz contigous b41 spectrum.
    • I just had to renew my Sprint Corporate discount last week.
