East Pasadena 4G service is non-existence again. Also getting really poor to no voice signal. I hope sprint gets their stuff together, this is getting ridiculous.

 

You are in an area of active deployment. It will probably happen again before it's all over with.

Tell me about it... My girlfriend called me from 4 to 7pm today and was unable to reach me. Checked my phone and no signal. Had to toggle airplane mode to get signal back. Frustrating but I am hopeful for what is to come...

Outside of urban interference, why is it at work in Paramount there is almost or is NO lte around my office, but the tower is only half a mile north/east on Alondra? my phone just sucks up juice trying to find signal inside the building, so it's a little frustrating. are the towers directionally variable with a narrow line of sight (90-170*)?

Finally two more live towers in the west Glendale area......Getting close to 30mbps down all around the area...I think is super cool that 3 sites are in line and kinda close to each other...super good coverage now....

 

Just wondering, how do you know when a site goes live and it's exact location?

Picked up LTE out at the 605 freeway between the 10 and the 210 freeways as well. It was 4 Mbps down and 4 Mbps up. I looked at the maps and I think the tower that was broadcasting it was the one near Lower Azusa exit.

I work in Downtown LA and until this morning my phone never got more than .5mb down or up whether 3G or LTE in my office. So either a new tower went live near my work building or an existing tower is pumping out a stronger signal. Regardless, this is phenomenal.

 

This is more than enough data speed to play Pandora, iHeart Radio, or even stream video.

With Baseball season coming in a few weeks, it will be excellent. Now i can drive people crazy with my at bat app going and watching the game. Go Dodgers!

 

I'm guessing you will be using the At Bat app around town (as opposed to at Dodger Stadium) because one of the improvements the new owners will be implementing for Dodger Stadium is Wi-Fi. Then again, who knows how good the Wi-Fi will be, especially when a game is a sellout. I too can't wait - love the new ownership and can't stand that the Hated Ones have won two of the last three World Series.

No, permitting issues could be holding up work, waiting for equipment to be shipped from AlcaLu, or other misc. reasons. Give them time, these things don't happen overnight.

How much time have do we have to give them? All the other major networks have 4G at metro areas while us Sprint customers can't even get reliable 3G. It is such a shame and I think we've been patient enough. I renewed my 2 yr contract thinking at least by end 2012 we would have LTE in LA and OC County, but I couldn't have been more wrong. I regret signing with this inferior network.

If you don't think that Verizon and AT&T didn't have problems with their network upgrades, you are sorely mistaken. There are still towers in the Vegas Market that Verizon has permit applications out that still haven't gotten approved, and those applications are 3 years old. Sprint is spending over $6 billion on Network Vision and the 3 deployment Vendors have hired hundreds of companies with thousands of employees to do the work. However, cities have the ultimate say as to who gets to do what and when. So don't go blaming Sprint for the slow rollout in some areas and not others. And just for the record, San Gabriel is an active deployment area, so work is already proceeding there. I just checked Sensorly and there is even active LTE at the corner of Mission Rd and San Gabriel Blvd.

May I refer you to this?

Negative comments. Negative comments about Sprint and/or S4GRU are allowed. However, negative comments must be constructive in nature, relevant to the topic and the conversation, illustrate facts, be made rationally and intelligently and cannot have an attack tone. Rants will not be allowed. We do not host Sprint's complaints. Complaints about Sprint should be directed to their customer service channels.

I've had constant 3 Bars LTE (iPhone so actual LTE strength) in my apartment in Hollywood since around November. But all of a sudden the past 24 hours or so I've only been getting 1x (the small circle) I cant even get 3G anymore.

 

Yeah yeah, I know connect to WiFi, but this has been causing my text messages to not go through either so WiFi isnt helping.

 

I've never seen it go this long without even 3G, even when they were first working on the tower.

      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.

    • Ah, I see.  Thanks for those details! It is great to see some posts on this subject.
    • I was reading the FCC filing for the Pixel 6 yesterday and saw that it included n258 - I was wondering what that was. That will be my next phone so nice to know it will support this new spectrum. 
    • The decommissioning of Sprint sites has started, the optimistic worrying starts about which sites they will keep and convert. Only 2 out of the 3 B41 sectors are on Cellmapper, and 0 B25/26 sectors. I think another site near me also got turned off/decom'd, but I haven't checked it yet. I guess its time to start paying more attention to Sprint sites... Link to street view of the site via Google Maps ,  Link to the site in Cellmapper . Nov 2020 view: Pic of the empty top and poles on the side of the building removed, taken 2 days ago:
    • Haven't gone anywhere yet, so I can't speak to benefits.  My issue was that I was out on Monday morning and it appears that T-Mobile has turned off several Sprint towers near me.  I was sitting in a parking lot near Landmark Mall on -118 dBm Band 25 because two of the sites I used to connect to there were apparently not running, so data would barely move.  This is in addition to my home site which has been off for several weeks, but that wasn't an issue because I don't use wireless data at home.  But if they're starting to turn off Sprint sites and leave holes, then there's really no alternative. So far, I've only seen T-Mobile, but that makes sense since I've only been home and my home site is gone on Sprint, so the site I had been connecting to was a lot weaker.  I'll have to see when I'm out and about, possibly this weekend. When ROAMAHOME came out, I had that removed and blocked from my account since T-Mobile's network is so lousy, so my lines were not automatically pushed to MULTOCN.  I had to have the block removed and then MULTOCN manually added.  That's probably not typical. - Trip
    • Are you seeing a benefit from MOCN?  Is it true that MOCN is highly biased to using T-Mobile towers?  Should everyone with a non-5G phone ask for MOCN? I had the impression it was supposed to be automatic now, perhaps even without being entered explicitly.  Is this not the case?  I realize that it may take some time to draw conclusions so if you do not know yet that is fine. Thanks!
