What speeds were you getting before

The 3G in the areas I frequent have been ridiculously slow as of late (sub - 100 kbps) when I used to get at least ~600 kbps. Would that indicate tower work is being done?

Wow. 101 sites for this week's update.

 

Were they mostly in West LA? I noticed some outages around my area this past weekend.

i wish that they would futher their work around Dodgers stadium. It is just death in there for sprint. VZW and ATT seem to be fine, it's t-mo and Sprint that just can't hold a signal. I get an OK when in 4G but i can barely hold it. My tickets are by the visiting bullpen, so there's room for improvement.

It was around the entire market...all over.

I called in and they confirmed NV work being done. Sprint normally has strongest signal at my house, but it went to no signal at all recently.

Unless the May 2nd Carbon nightly greatly improved my radio LTE speeds were much improved in Downtown LA all along the 110 freeway and PCH. I watched several innings of baseball on the MLB At Bat app with only one hiccup when my bus was going by USC.

I went to the Dodger game last night against the Angels. Got signal for 3G and 4G, but data wouldn't work. I would guess that the network's congested.

My friend's AT&T 4G LTE phone worked though.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe Dodger Stadium went through a process where they put WiFi in every part of the ballpark.

That's even worse then.  There was no WiFi to be had during that game. I just wanted 3G to check my e-mail and my Hangouts but alas that didn't happen.

 

I'll be at Angel Stadium tonight where my phone has picked up LTE throughout the stadium (except club suites).

Let's see how well it performs when there's at least 20000 people at the stadium.

Let me clarify, I've been to over a half dozen Angels games, and my phone had consistently picked up LTE before, during, and after games at the Big A.

When I am on Sunset Blvd. In Echo Park, between Echo Park Avenue and Portia, there is no Sprint service at all and my phone goes to roam. I think that's odd for a major street.

He was speaking for DODGER Stadium, which will not have a finished working Wifi network until june/july. 

 

The BIG A has a tower close by and one a few miles away in SA. 

 

There is a tower up at the top of the hill behind the outfield, you can see it as you exit the stadium.  It has been upgraded, just not sure on the backhaul and when 4G will broadcast.  Hopefully sooner rather then later.

Dodger stadium is atrocious. Once i was in the stadium, i had full bars, but calls were unavailable, messaging was unavailable and data was a "Good luck Charlie Brown" deal.  4G was more usable then 3g, but with it coming in at -120dB or so, it was almost unusable 85% of the time. 

I'm glad i don't have season tickets or i would be activating my old EVO 4G just for the wimax.

Towers in Glendale, CA on Hawthorne and Wilson just went live with 4G!

I think it went live on Thursday, I had an amazing signal at my office in Glendale, but then Friday I was back to what it was before. I think they may have been testing but if that's the case then I will be stoked when they go full live.

      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!
