Network Vision/LTE - Miami/West Palm Market

Recommended Posts

Another tower just across the bay. Still at work. Idk if the addresses are accurate.

 

I can't quite tell.  Since the Rickenbacker Causeway one has no address, and the Aquarium site is right off Rickenbacker, that one could be accurate or offset.  The SW 29th Avenue one appears offset, but it is pretty darn close to the location.  So it may be offset, I can't say with certainty.  We would need a few more examples.  But I believe most Ericsson markets do have offsets.

EDIT:  After further review, I looked at the site closest to the SW 29th address.  The site is on the roof of the Terrabank tower.  The sector you would be on at Key Biscayne faces SSE.  If you drew a straight line from Terrabank toward the SW 29th Ave address, it lines right up with the panel direction on the tower.  It is indeed an offset of the Sprint site on the Terrabank tower.

I decided earlier today to switch my roaming setting to stay only on sprint. It's worked out very well so far. At work I only care about receiving text, WiFi is for data but i managed to get prompt text sends and responses. 

Robert is there a way to force 1x800 on the nexus?

Hi guys, left for TMUS about 8 months ago, data experience has been better, but not the voice (thou with the activation of VoLTE, it has definitely improved), with the new family share plan offer, and the offer to pay for my ETF's, it seems like a good opportunity to switch back, but I would have to get at least 3 new phones, and that means spending money. My question is, how does the network performance compares today to 9 months ago? It's B41 covering now at least 50% of the market? Those that don't have Spark phones have seen a betterment of their performance since more and more users move off of the PCS band and onto the Spark as their primary data band? How about the old nextel band's deployment for LTE or even CDMA? I was a sponsor to the site, but my sponsorship has expired, I believe that Sprint with Softbank's help can really turn things around relatively quick, now that it isn't focus on merging anymore, but also don't want to spend unnecessary money if experience it's not going to be better than what it was when I left.

 

Thanks for your inputs in advance.

I've been getting b41 everywhere I go from bmwsouth to downtown to key Biscayne. I also find myself riding b41 north on the turnpike through all of broward on my way to Orlando. Its much much much better in my opinion.

Band 26 LTE 800mhz is still stalled due to Miami Dade county cops. But that won't last much longer.

Looks like we have CDMA 800 in West Kendall. Came home for lunch, was going to turn the Airave on, then noticed a 3 bar signal in my house, on the first floor, where it's usually "Extended" or "No Service" or 1 bar of unusable native 1900. Very unstable though.  Keeps switching between SID 22417 and the old 4151.  Made a couple of test calls and have to say, it completes the calls right away, with no delay.  Just like Verizon.

It's actually probably quite stable. The iPhone likes to avoid 1x800 like it's a plague. I SHOULD get 1x800 in my apartment and I know I can pick it up, but my 5s will prefer a completely unusable PCS signal over 1x800. You have to have literally no signal at all to get 1x800. Defeats the purpose of it, and hopefully apple will make some changes soon.

I switched back from t-mobile, and boy, what a difference. In my opinion t-mobile is still a little better in both speed and coverage for data, but when you get connected to B41, there is no contest, and based on my experience B41 its available in more than 50% of the market, even when I'm connected to B25, the speeds are much better, I imagine that's due to the fact that less and less people everyday are using that band as the primary LTE connection.

Are there any more updates coming to the West Palm area? Yesterday, out near Seminole Pratt I got 39mbps up and 6 down. Not bad for the sticks. Much faster than my Verizon phone.

Why is Dade holding up the 800 deployment? I'm trying to find the sponsor forum for the updates can anyone point me in the right direction? Any updates for the West Palm area? Thank you!

Metro-Dade PD still hasn't vacated the spectrum needed to run LTE at 800.  CDMA is on though.

We should start doing FOIA requests on email communications between MDPD, Harris Corp, and Sprint. See  what excuses MDPD have been coming up with.

Thanks for the info. I look forward to reading the article. Leave it to Metro to be slow. MDPD is lightyears behind the surrounding agencies.

My home tower just went live about 20 minutes ago with 8T8R in Tamarac fl. Pulling 32 down.

Awesome! I used to live on prosperity farms in sanctuary cove and the 3G was always slow. Didn't have a LTE capable phone then.

    • Sprint has updated its VoLTE Page as a result of the merger: https://www.sprint.com/en/shop/services/volte.html Support for additional devices has been listed. A couple of things I noticed: “By enabling VoLTE, you will get access to expanded coverage on the T-Mobile network with capable devices.” and this change to Wi-Fi Calling: How does VoLTE work with Wi-Fi Calling? Wi-Fi Calls will transfer to VoLTE when Wi-Fi coverage becomes poor and VoLTE is available. For this automated transfer to take place, VoLTE must be turned “ON”. Starting in April 2020, Sprint is updating most VoLTE-capable devices to prefer Cellular networks over Wi-Fi Networks. This means that if your device has Wi-Fi Calling enabled, it will only be used if the cellular coverage in your area is poor. If you are on an active call using VoLTE and the coverage does decline, the call will attempt to transfer from VoLTE to Wi-Fi when the device is connected to a strong Wi-Fi signal.    
    • Yes indeed, it resolved my issue.
    • Samsung bandwidth selection app still works?
    • Btw new update is out! With security finally updated! Also, camera improvements, autofocus is much better now, on top of that, a couple of tweaks within the camera app.  Very nice update.
