I wish I had an LTE phone :( I drive past from Melbourne to Orlando almost daily and could easily swing by there to map it on Sensorly.

Given the terrain in that area is so low and most of the signal would be across open water, the Sensorly blip out on Cape Canaveral could certainly be from the Cocoa site that showed up in the last update. It is on a really tall tower.

If that one occurred today at that location then that person is enjoying a nice trip out to sea on one of the Thu-Sun cruise to the Bahamas. It's a nice easy port to go in and out of and that location is right smack dab where a cruise ship would sit.

In the beginning, I thought it was just me. That I would be all alone in my corner of the internet. However, I have found there are 1000's just like me. Thanks!

I was just driving in Rockledge and noticed that I was on 4G. Oddly, the tower is about 4 blocks west of my house, but I cannot get 4G (I can see the tower from my backyard). I actually lost the signal after driving one block east of the tower. However, I drove about 1 mile south and did have 4G the entire time. I lost it when my phone grabbed the signal from the next tower to the south.

 

The map shows the route that I was driving.

Maybe not all of the sectors are active. The one pointing towards your house may not be turned on yet.

That is probably accurate. I will check out areas to the north and west this weekend.

      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.

      Sprint announced at MWC trade show in Barcelona that 5G will go live with 4 cities starting in May  (Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas and Kansas City )

      Sprint announced the MVNO Google Fi will use its network for 5G in a press release (that is, once there are actually 5G capable phones compatible with Google Fi someday):
      https://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-to-provide-5g-wireless-services-for-google-fi.htm
       
      This is the first I've heard about Fi and 5G so far. Google has pretty much kept mum on the topic, so I'm somewhat encouraged.

    • Thank you. That’s good to know that it sounds like the modem is better than the XS Max.
    • So after waiting 2 hrs in line at the apple store I finally have a 11 pro. I can tell you the reception is alittle better then last years iPhones. It is a lot better then the unlocked s10 plus I was using which anything above -112 was useless. 
    • Yes we do. 60 MHz NR + 60 MHz LTE out of M-MIMO equipment. DSS will be deployed soon and 40-60 MHz will remain used for LTE on small cells/MBs.  As far as LTE goes, Sprint runs between 60 MHz and 100 MHz on macro sites with 20-60 MHz used for small cells/MBs. The actual numbers vary from market to market. In Seattle, Sprint runs 100 MHz of L2500 on macros, 40 MHz on small cells, and MBs have their own dedicated channel.  Only in areas lacking contiguous spectrum. 60 MHz will be the norm.  Let's not start this discussion again, please. 
    • I'm just saying it will not happen as whomever buys Sprint will want B41. Not every area has 160 mhz. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
    • We don't know what Sprint is going to do with 5G.  I don't even think for 4G they used all of its 160 GHz of 2.5 GHz spectrum.  Even in early 5G deployments Sprint is only deploying 40 MHz of 2.5 GHz spectrum.  Also we dont know how long Sprint will continue to operate as a company with all of its debt and declining customer base.
