Have not seen any movement in 4g lte in Bixby Knolls (Long Beach, Ca) does anyone have any updates for this area it's seems like there has no improvements at all in this area. I have to use an Airwave to even get 3g service.

At this phase LA is not gonna hit 100% in years..inly 9 sites this week...Thats freaking slow.

 

Be careful not to say anything about or complain about the LTE rollout or the mods will say you're breaking the forum rules :0

Believe me I know. It just seems like whenever someone post some frustration on here, they're breaking the rules Lol I never have LTE when I absolutely NEED it, which sucks.

I actually find these posts more annoying than the complaint about the rollout going slow in LA last week.

Well, that should come as no surprise because you are breaking the rules. See the section on "Negative comments." We do not host Sprint complaints. Plain and simple.

Okay. I have some positive news to share.

 

When I made my daily trek on PCH through Lomita and Wilmington my phone showed consistent 4G. Took a speedtest at PCH and Normandie intersection where the phone showed 3mb down, 1mb up.

We don't track percentage with live LTE, but do we track percentages of sites that have started and/or completed upgrades. http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/212-network-visionlte-deployment-running-list/

 

For the LA Metro market, 43% have at least the 3G portion of the upgrade and about half of those have the 4G accepted too. Additionally, all 43% have the LTE equipment installed as well, but not all are functioning yet because of backhaul availability, etc.

 

Over in the S4GRU Sponsor maps we show all the sites signed off for 3G and LTE upgrades all across the country.

This thread is too quiet.

 

For people who live or work in downtown LA, I've noticed at random times this week where there was no 4G available. It was only an issue when I wanted to watch a Netflix show and the reception was awful at best

So, I just checked the map for the first time in a while. The tower that is closest to me is 1/2 a block away (I'm at the corner of Fairfax and Wilshire), but the 3G/4G signal is so quirky on my Note 2. According to the map, that tower is complete, but why is 3G/4G connection so awful. When I first discovered 4G going live, it was decent, but as of late...both 3G and 4G have been awful.

 

Seems like Network Vision is going just as slow as I originally thought it would. Here's to hoping 2013 gets faster updates.

Yeah the tower by my house shows up as NV complete but no LTE for me yet. I'll it ever have LTE or just NV 3G?

Yea, it will get upgraded to LTE. Alcatel Lucent brings up the 3G side first.

Nice thanks for the info and quick reply :-D it doesn't show as "in progress" in the interactive maps for sponsors so I guess I'll just wait and hope it comes soon.

We only have about 1/4 of the sites In Progress logged on our maps. We don't get info on all of them. We get In Progress site info inconsistently. And about 1/3 of them come from our members.

 

All 3G accepted sites in your market technically are all In Progress for LTE.

      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 .

    • 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!
