Specifically Metro West area, seeing some really good EVDO numbers. 2.00+ down ~0.6-1.1 up. Sitting at home.

I feel like I hit the Jackpot... Lol.... I have a high priority ticket open with Sprint Exec care and they forwarded my ticket to the local Ericsson tech. He called me directly. He was so impressed

This has nothing to do with what you pay for. The deployment is nowhere near done in Orlando. The speeds are because half the towers in the city have been upgraded. So 100,000 LTE users are being c

Is that different from what you normally see?

 

Well some context may help if this is what the norm is here. I was away in Tampa over the Summer from about May. I had AT&T right before I left. In Tampa Sprint's EVDO was very bad, even in full reception areas from my experience, 0.11 Down and 0.06 Up. So what I'm seeing now is a vast improvement.

Wow.. I can tell you that Sprint was actually not that bad here, then the iPhone showed up and my speeds crashed. HARD.. It was ok for a bit because I was using Wimax while I was at work and wifi at home. After getting the EVO LTE though the speeds here are terrible. I'm hoping I start to see some work over here soon.. It would be nice. There is so much in the area that I hope Florida in general gets plenty of love soon.

Hopefully we get some LTE love soon here in TB :) I work in Sable Park over by the Fairgrounds, and I think every company over here must use Sprint Blackberry's. We have about 40 Sprint based phones in our office. When i get to my office at 7am I am getting around 500K down, but by lunch time it is usually in the 20-30K range with more than 2K ms ping time. Completely unbearable.

East side of Orlando has been terrible for me. Specifically the Avalon Park area. I drive by the tower every day hoping to see some trucks out front.

Here's some recent tests from the past two days.

funny, sprint used to dominate that area. i would never get signal on the stretch from avalon to around eastwood when driving on alafaya with at&t, while my friends would get good service from Sprint. since the area is still growing, i'm sure sprint could use a good upgrade there.

 

as for metrowest, i got good speeds there over a month ago :)

The signal isnt' bad, I never have any call issues, it's the data speeds that are unusable. It extends through research park and is generally slow everywhere in east Orlando.

 

I did manage to run a speed test downtown last weekend and was pleasantly surprised. No LTE, but adequate 3g speeds.

My wife works there near Coca Cola. That area is a notorious dead zone in the buildings. There is a deli there that u can't get a signal wo roaming.

I work on Coconut Palm and I was noticing the high tension wires essentially wrap around our building, runs along our parking lot then turns behind our building before crossing the canal. I go to Veterans Park on 301 just across the canal at Lunch pretty regularly and over there I get decent speeds (between 1mb and 2mb). A question I have for those smarter than me. Can the High Tension wires cause radio interference?

Yes. Much like they can interfere with your car radio, the can interfere with your wireless device radio performance. I see it happen all the time in my own personal observations.

I'm up for contract renewal, but I'm waiting to see how LTE rolls out in Orlando. I'm in Auburndale, which is halfway between Orlando and Tampa, but Orlando is my market apparently. I have an Evo 3D, but use 3G 95% of the time as no where around here has 4G besides Lakeland (downtown). It's like glorified WIFI for the most part and it doesn't keep signal well, but I can get it there when I do a job-site there. I really want to upgrade to an S3, but I don't want to be stuck in a contract for another 2 years with Sprint if they can't speed up 3G or get 4G LTE. I have a Nextel tower by my house, so I'm hoping that gets turned into a 4G LTE tower in the future. Maybe then I could get service in or around my house because it's pathetic now. I have to have an Airave to get service inside my house. Even outside it's super super slow without the airave.

 

 

EDIT: I remembered I can also get 4G Wiimax in parts of Winter Haven (mainly when I'm at my buddies house). It makes me mad cause I can easily hit 4-5mb inside his house. The funny thing is 3G inside his house is amost nonexistant with Sprint, but I can get 4G awesome. I barely go over there, so it isn't like I can use it much.

I know it has Orlando with 1st LTE sites in Orlando, but just wondering when it'll actually be usable. I know it'll probably be a few months after Orlando lights up that I'll get LTE in my area, but I'm still excited as Orlando was listed in the article to get first LTE sites in September. Will that article be updated?

 

I'm going to donate some money, so hopefully I can get info faster. I just won't be able to donate $100+ so I can get the most info as a premium user.

Just checked it this morning, was usually only getting Evdo the last couple days, did a speed test today and low and behold, Ehrpd. Hopefully won't be too long for LTE Deployment.

Same happened to me down here in Miami. Just all of a sudden I got eHRPD connection. As far as I can tell everywhere that I have been to yesterday I have received eHRPD, even places where I have poor connection (like my campus lol). Hopefully this bit of news does mean we shall be receiving some much needed LTELOVE lol xD (I'm a bit hyper this morning :D)

eHRPD in Daytona Beach / Port Orange Florida!

 

This seems to blanket the entire area. I haven't been able to test Ormond Beach or any other surrounding cities..

 

Data speeds + pings are excellent for noon 3g access.

 

I did notice one of the towers having more antennas since I last checked; Compare: https://dl.dropbox.c...87/M1030008.JPG, https://dl.dropbox.c...87/M1030007.JPG,

https://dl.dropbox.c...87/M1030006.JPG vs http://goo.gl/maps/EA58N

 

I did drive by and noticed a brown SUV infront of the gate, I wanted to stop but traffic prevented me from doing so.

 

I hope to see LTE soon!

 

I did post this as a reply to the eHRPD in jax thread, but I figured it would be more adequate to make a topic to grab attention to those in the Volusia area

Next time i'm near that tower, i'll grab some data. Opensignal was showing thats where my cell site was so it must be sprint right?

 

EDIT: The photos I posted above are the same tower..

Wow, I was getting really excited! I live in Deland( probably only those from here have heard of it) However, I go to school out in Daytona. I have been holding off getting an S3 or evo LTE, but now maybe I need to start looking for a good deal.

 

Thx to everyone for the updates.

Does anyone know if the company C-Mark (http://www.cmarkcorp.com/portfolio.html) works for Ericsson, or if Ericsson works for them? The past few days I've seen trucks with C-Mark's name on the side and they're working on the tower near my house. According to Florida's network vision site map here's the tower info:

 

MI13XC249

27.078340389409764, -80.1436057292412,

8137-8213 SE Pettway St, Hobe Sound, FL 33455, USA

Sprint Market: Orlando

OEM: Ericsson

 

I was just curious if they're getting things ready for Network Vision. They don't seem to be on the actual tower, but working down bellow on the equipment. Also I have seen people hanging from towers a bit north in Port St Lucie Florida but I can't confirm if it was a Sprint tower or not. I was in heavy traffic and saw them out of the corner of my eye.

I've not heard of that subcontractor specifically. But Ericsson has many. So it's plausible. We do have maps in our Sponsor section that shows all the Sprint sites in the country. You can check on those.

      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.
