Running list and LTE connections


Recommended Posts

I've been viewing the running list in the Houston area for the past couple of days and its stayed at 14%. My question is how long does it take to update when new towers are complete and does anyone know how many or much upgrades per day can Sprint accomplish. Furthermore based on reading one of the articles could it be that many in Houston could have good in home coverage of LTE with the 14% completed but can't connect because of the threshold issues?

I typically update the NV Completed Sites map on average once per week. When I do, I try to remember to update the percentages in the Running List thread. I can confirm as of our last live site update on July 15th, that Houston did only have 14% complete. Well below the normal launch target of 40%.

 

Based on the past weekly updates, I would say on average, 5-10 sites come live every week so far in Houston. However, the master Network Vision schedule shows that sites complete every week is supposed to jump in July from the previous 5-10 to be more like 18 per week. So they are going to have to speed up deployment soon, or they will get behind the schedule that we discussed in our last Houston article: http://s4gru.com/index.php?/blog/1/entry-263-houston-network-visionlte-deployment-schedule-update/

 

As for the 14% coverage, you would get good in home coverage if you were within 2 miles of a site in most instances, if there wasn't the threshold issues. When complete, you should have a similar LTE signal as 3G signal in most places.

    • New oddity since the Feb security patch and a carrier services upgrade, no matter if Wifi is turned on or off, I'm seeing a Wifi 4 connection to an unknown ssid.  Airplane mode, etc didn't get rid of it. Connecting to my home wifi (which turned into Wifi 5) then disconnecting resolved the issue. Not sure where/why the ghost was coming from
    • Digging permits for fiber/power pulled by T-Mobile. American Tower sites are just easy to look up since we can find where they are easy enough.
    • Where do you get new tower plans for American Tower? Do they show on the American Tower Site Locator map?    Also, here’s a map of permits across Northwest Ohio (Lucas County) if anyone’s interested 😁 https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/2/edit?mid=1-qgOcMVOnqW4b9-HhUDc7AGxbRLqn48&usp=sharing
    • That's a decent number of new sites. Nebraska is likely the oddest market in the country, as T-Mobile didn't exist here until a few years ago. Until last summer, their footprint didn't really extend much out of Omaha, Sprint had a much larger footprint. But I'd like to think that their aggressive expansion here is a signal that they intend to follow through on their rural expansion plans. Given the number of American Tower sites that we know they are targeting across NE, KS, MO, IA, AR and IL, it does seem that they have an expansion plan ready to go. Unfortunately we haven't done any digging for the OH area so I don't have any details there for you.
    • Here are the new sites in the Toledo area from the last few years. All of these are Sprint conversions, and they still have a few more Sprint sites to convert
