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.

    • I haven't caught a whiff of n41 down here in the South Sound, yet.  I am slowly finding more B41, though.  Recently in Shelton, the two Sprint Retain sites that were converted have B41 live now.  Their permits show n41 equipment.  But they just haven't fired them up, yet. Robert
    • Documentation says one thing, but reality can prove the documentation to be completely inaccurate once you actually test the equipment. I run into this pretty regularly at work with software and hardware I utilize.  "hey, it says it can do xyz" and I get a "mumble mumble mumble, yeah we never got that to actually work" or "that configuration actually doesn't exist", or "we are waiting on firmware" or "this functionality costs extra, buy this for $15,000/yr per radio and we will turn it on" blah blah blah.
    • Wonder if AT&T is doing some last minute deals with businesses, as to why HSPA is still online. Or maybe there are contracts in place that have pushed the "deadline" out in various places. Shoot, AT&T could be getting sued in local courts and the courts saying AT&T needs to keep it online until things are settled?
    • The main n41 channel was just moved up to 2639MHz this morning.  This means that channel spans from 2589MHz-2689MHz. With Sprint B41 at 2501.5MHz, and TMobile B41 spanning 2508MHz-2548MHz. That leaves room for a 40MHz n41 channel. If they drop one of the TMobile B41 channels, they could easily expand that to 60MHz. This all in line with their permit filings which indicate a second n41 carrier of <=80MHz.
    • Another confirmed keep site: Sprint eNB ? -> T-Mobile eNB 895067 (40.73485489368193,-74.0089370311213)
