This is very disappointing news. I am averaging -105dBm in my house right now.

 

You will likely not get LTE inside your home then. What is your signal like outside? Although, none of us really need LTE inside our home, because of WiFi. But it would be nice to have once we step outside.

Yeah, no doubt. Our gas is currently $3.59 a gallon, and that is very expensive to me. I wouldn't want to pay CA prices at this time. Yowzers!

We shouldn't need it at home but I do need it at work, which undoubtedly has thicker walls than my home. Of course, LTE hasn't even been switched on for West LA yet, but once it is, I hope that the penetration is good enough for me to keep a signal at work. Doesn't help that I have the EVO as well with its radio problems.

I don't know the dBm level, but I usually get about 3 bars outside. At least the closest tower is now NV upgraded.

If your 1x connection is typically -95dBm or better, then you will likely have LTE in your workplace when the nearest site to you has been converted and goes live. This is far better than WiMax, which was limited to -82dBm in most devices.

You can go to Settings > About > Status and look at signal strength. In places where the signal is better than -95dBm, you will likely get LTE when the build out is complete.

Came to best buy on Washington and overland near Culver City....picked up my phone and I had LTE!!! Ran four speed tests and was getting between 15 and 20 Mbps up and 8-9 down. Super happy! Unfortunately sensorly doesn't let me map it on iOS so if any android users are near this area please map! Looks like the west side is finally being lit up. :)

That's about 2 miles from where I live! I'll see if I can swing by there and map it on Sensorly before going to work tonight.

Oh I know - I just never bothered to look when I'm outside ;P

Okay, a few minutes after posting this, I checked my phone in my apartment, and there it was: LTE! I was getting about -100 indoors, so I took it outside and did a quick Sensorly map and some more speed tests. I was getting about -80 outside, and got these speeds:

Realistically inside my apartment I was getting between high 6 and low 13.

 

And the blob of purple on this map, that's from my little walk around the block while mapping: http://sensorly.com/...0sprint#q=90034

 

I'll map on my drive to work tonight and see how far the coverage goes.

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.
