Network Vision/LTE - South West Florida Market

Recommended Posts

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

Saw a couple of towers being worked on here in port Charlotte and north port Florida.. That is a good sign... Didn't see any new equipment though just some guys up on the towers them self.

Is this Site #TA70XC049 off Toledo Blade, south of the Publix? If so, this site is not scheduled to start work until October. However, there have been many sites that start work early if the backhaul gets completed sooner than expected.

 

Also, one of those trucks looks like it has GOFF written on the side. Goff is one of the subcontractors seen at sites underway in the Miami market too. This is a good sign. Keep us posted. Thanks for the heads up.

Yes that is the site right on toledo.. also i seen the same thing happening to a site right on veterns (rd. highway ??) and interstate 75.

 

The Veterans/I-75 site is scheduled to start in August. So this one appears to be ahead of schedule too. Good news. :D

That's actually a very sexy looking tower.

 

I wonder if NIMBY people would complain less if more towers had some design elements added to them vs. just completely industrial/functional element.

 

Forget the fake trees, let's just design sexy looking towers - turn them into something people can appreciate.

I was thinking the same thing. It is pretty nifty.

I was wondering, since it's in Florida, if this tower design was for strength to handle hurricanes better. Looks pretty sturdy.

Goff Communications. I don't have that type of vision to see that on the trucks but I used to work for them when I first moved to Florida. I can tell you that I hung a buch of Nextel panels and ran tons of coax back in 1994. It would make sense for them to be involved. I can tell you guys too that if you see tower guys working don't be afraid to walk up and say hi. Maybe with a few Gatorades and ask some questions. Most of them are not hardcore phone geeks but they love job they do and love talking about it. You could get some real good info that way.

A speed test i recently took right next to the tower they were working on off toledo blade.

 

Now that looks like some NV backhaul! Hopefully this site will appear on our NV Sites Complete map soon. Does the signal seem slightly stronger too?

Nothing here yet. I would imagine the first LTE tower to light up in Naples will be the same one that first came online when they flipped the switch on 4G. That tower is located on the corner of Commercial Blvd & Enterprise Ave in the Corporate Park just off Livingston Rd.

Is that a Louisiana server you were connected with? And that was in the Southwest Florida region. If that's the case I need to keep my eyes open here in St.Pete

 

Yeah i had my gps off so that is the server it connected to.

Looks like another tower is being updated here in port charlotte, north port area.

 

I saw 2 workers working on the tower heading south on us 41 and the closes intersection was cranberry blvd. Tower is right off 41 to the left heading south and about a quarter mile from the intersection of cranberry and 41 in north port. Just wanted to let you know. Hopefully this is a sprint tower being upgraded.

That is an excellent speed. What's odd for me is that I used to get speeds like that before they added an extra carrier to the closest tower next to me. Now I'm lucky to get 1mbps. No idea if the extra carrier was the "cause" of my poor speeds but I stopped getting those speeds around that time :(

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
