Seems like a stretch but could it be from the doctors inlet tower..... thought crossed my mind this morning

what signal strength do you get from the lte debugging screen? Dialer code ##DEBUG# WITH sprint as password.

Now that I'm looking at the Sensorly maps (I forgot it reports signal strength, too.) It looks like it's completely possible that it's the Doctor's Inlet tower. Keep us updated and thanks for contributing to Sensorly for all of us. ;)

 

I'm literally across the river to the east on CR 210. LOL! I'm so close, yet, so far.

-113 rsrp would be equivalent to -88 dBm on RSSI. I think that's an average signal, a little bit on the lower quality side. Even so, I think a -113 should pull a little better than 5mbps so I will assume the results are just from a tower that's not fully completed yet.

 

I wish Sprint made it easier to track the sites coordinates.

 

Edit: if the second picture is really -91 dBm rsrp, then your lte speeds should be flying!

Once I get out of class, I'll check the Baymeadows Tower again. Hopefully it is completed!

Yeah, hopefully its completed. I don't cycle my phone near competed towers anymore Ive given up on that.(until HTC fix this connectivity problem with the EVO LTE.) I know from this point NV has started and someday it will be complete. Until then I just wait.

The i95/Baymeadows site? I'm convinced they're blocking it. The panels were installed on Oct 18th but no sign of lte at all. 3g speeds are also really slow.

5Mbps is pretty normal for -113dBm RSRP. I'm pretty sure that app is not reading the -91dBM as the LTE RSRP, but errently reading the 1x RSSI, much like Net Monitor and other apps do.

Ya I kinda figured that app wasn't the best... just playing around with different ones on the play store. ...

 

When I was at the tire kingdom I pressed the info button on open signal and it showed the I was using gsm I thought sprint didnt use gsm

I believe the app is trying to say LTE is a GSM technology.

Well.. It does use the a SIM card or equivilant to access LTE doesnt it?

I see all this talk about Baymeadows and the northside...and Orange Park...

 

What about downtown Jax, Arlington, or the beaches?

 

Anything? :wacko:

We know work is being done all over Jacksonville, we don't really know which sites will be completed first (some are delayed, others are ahead, etc.)

 

The best way to know is to check on a common occurrence and see if you get the LTE signal anywhere. There's also a map in the Sponsors forum that tells people which sites have been accepted by Sprint (and in most cases are not being blocked.)

A SIM card is not only a GSM thing. Nextel iDEN also uses SIM cards, and it is not a GSM technology.

Well I went back and mapped the site and I also went by the site on Busch Dr and I95 and got nothing. I'll be near baymeadows tomorrow I'll see if that site is active.

Does anyone know about the Gainesville and or Ocala areas. I havent seen much talk about those areas. I work in Gainesville, but live in Ocala. Cant wait for 4G at home.

Not sure if this will help you or not. There was an Ocala contractor who completed a site here in Largo I believe. I thought it was strange for them to have a crew all the way down here to do one site. I can't remember his name offhand but I'm sure he will be heavily involved with the deployment in that area. Try the Ocala permitting site to see if you find anything

I'm always across the river! Come on lte, appear on the East side!

On a side note, I can try the Bay Meadows tower again on the way home.

it does seem odd to send someone so far south in another Market. But Thanks :-)

      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.
