Possible work being done in Lafayette, IN?

I don't know if it's my phone (SGS3) or if the NV updates are coming into play slightly, but in the evenings my ping is 1000+ and I'm not even touching 0.2 Mbs down. A few weeks ago it was pretty good and nothing to complain about (can't recall the numbers). Anyone else in the area notice this too?

The first Lafayette sites are not scheduled to start work until the end of August. However, maybe they are starting early?

I hope, I don't think it's my phone cuz my old OG EVO was doing the same thing. I'll cross my fingers and think the good thoughts. I'm not against things starting early :-D

Screenshot_2012-07-16-21-06-35.png Its possible cause they had 4g on last nite in highland indiana dont know how far that is from lafayette indiana.

 

Highland is in the Chicago market, where as Lafayette is in the Indy market.

I love how every time a site has issues its assumed to be a NV upgrade instead of a network issue. This is going to do wonders for the perception of Sprints network health!

Must be a NV upgrade, Congratulations! If you drive to the tower fast you might catch the van.

Nex-tech is working on it. Ive already chatted with them a little. That data issue is happening to all the phones on my account.

I believe the Indianapolis market was having major hick-ups this morning. I drove from Lafayette to Indianapolis around 4 am this morning and had no data until I was on the SW side of Indy, around an hour drive and over 60 miles (I was trying to use Waze and it kept saying searching for network, I then verified it was Sprint (and not Waze servers) by trying to load a webpage).

 

I am not getting super hopeful that we were getting upgraded, but I hope I am wrong.

Had drastic improvements today (1.2 down with a -95 dBm signal, one bar), I actually stopped and talked with the Sprint people and they said they are tinkering with the towers in the area.

I'm in Lafayette and its been rough going the past few days on the network. speeds have improved a lot. Ive gotten 2.2mbps down a few times. mostly its around 1.5mbps down. this is a huge improvement for my area.

    • I'm still getting Band 26 and Band 41 from keep sites in Crown Heights and Bay Ridge. I haven't seen any Band 25 though. I'm starting to think T-Mobile shut down Sprint's PCS spectrum here. I wonder if we'll get 5MHz Band 25 + 5MHz n25 carrier or if we'll just get 2 5MHz n25 carriers.
    • Still seeing strong T-Mobile HSPA+ and some weak Sprint B26 (311-490) in the north Bedstuy area Sprint eNB 6705 (40.70091884265787,-73.94344902067445) is broadcasting the keep PLMN Sprint eNB 899078/899079 (40.83022854043739,-73.94830306659236) has been converted, though the site has not yet been lit up. The density up there is pretty insane - 400ft from the site just North, 600ft from the site just South. Spotted another Dish site near City College (1606 Amsterdam Ave). This is not a former Sprint site, and the neighboring Sprint site (across the street) has not been decommissioned. Still not seeing the Dish PLMN in this area.
    • Just cycled through where I'm sitting...not near any keep sites...and 25/26 don't exist...locking to them but.ps me over to AT&T MFBI (why TMo isn't doing 2/25 MFBI here I don't know...maybe Nokia equipment can't do it?). TMo B41 is visible, but Sprint isn't. Two nights ago I saw 10 MHz Sprint B41 at the top of the band. Not sure whether that's live today.
    • Dish has base stations and antennas already set up for n26, and phones are starting to come out supporting that. Yes, it's a 5x5 patchwork, but it can basically provide an anchor for higher-frequency NR that augments n71, which in many places is only 5x5 on Dish.
    • Sprint still alive on all 3 bands here in the South Puget Sound area this morning. Robert
