Was that you on Rockledge Blvd?

Yes. I plan on looking south of where Wildman was, tomorrow.

Nice..I love collaboration..Did you have any issues picking up the signal? Did you have to toggle at all

My phone picked up the signal well. I never had to toggle. There's a slight lag, but that's understandable.

I just went out for a quick drive around the area and did find LTE. It's mapped on Sensorly. I will drive around some more tomorrow to see where the signal ends in all directions.

Yes. I plan on looking south of where Wildman was, tomorrow.

 

Just looking at the current Sensorly map and your Speedtest screenshots earlier, I suspect that the source of your LTE signal might be found around the Sensorly hotspot about 2-3 miles to the northwest of your track on Rockledge Blvd. It is pretty clear from both Sensorly and your own screenshots that you did not have a very strong LTE signal where you were, even though your CDMA 1x signal -- as shown on your status screen and notification bar -- was quite decent from a different, nearby tower. (And once again, I gently suggest that it would help if you gain access to the Sponsor maps so you will know where to look for the Sprint tower sites. That really saves a lot of time and guesswork.)

I drove around some more today. The Sensorly map should be updated.

 

Did you go further south like you planned? Looks like you may have and the signal faded

I did. I was driving to Melbourne and lost the signal before I got out of Rockledge. I also filled in some of the areas Wildman didn't get to.

Anyone want to chime in here? based on Wildman, Sloppy,and someone unknown who should be part of this site this may be one tower lighting up this area likely where the darker shade is located. I do wonder about the blip at the port though. There is a site in that area but I'm assuming the port blip would be a darker shade even if just one sector was working. If Sprint were being strategic I would have that one on full blast so people from other parts of the country that were leaving for cruises would have a taste of whats coming soon. That's why I'M surprised Disney or Orlando isnt lit up

Sprint really didn't pick when and where the broadband connections were going to be available though.

Looking at all the available evidence -- Sensorly tracks, the screenshots upthread and the all-important Sponsor maps that show the actual tower locations -- I think it is more than clear that there is only one live LTE site discovered anywhere in the vicinity so far. Wildman located it easily, apparently with the aid of the Sponsor maps, but properly did not identify the Sprint tower ID in this public thread . All the other tracks in the area just confirm that coverage pattern around the site, and confirm that no LTE registers at any other nearby Sprint tower. (Almost certainly, that could be verified empirically with the aid of the LTE Engineering screens to compare the IDs of the sector radios at various observation points.)

Yes, I do. I might check out the Port at some point.

Ill be going out of that port on a ship in a few weeks. I suspect the Sensorly map will be much different by then.

The city of Olando has a number of permits pulled but this is the only site that is indicating anything other then issued. "633 LAKE DOT CIR// Certificate of Appearance Review Issued// Removal of five (5) existing antennas and install three (3) new antennas"

There's another Orlando market site that showed up this week south of Palm Bay near a place called Grant.

Wow, Grant?! There's nothing down there. I have been doing some biological surveys down that way. I will keep an eye out for signal.

Just wanted to share what I found today. I've been lurking here for a while, and never thought I'd need an account, but this was too good not to share. LTE is being tested in Cocoa, FL at a tower on Clearlake Road. I happened to look down at my phone today and saw the 4G icon. I quickly took a short field trip to the tower, located about a mile away. There were 2 guys sitting outside the building, looking at a laptop. I yelled at them "You guys are my heroes!" They replied "4G, yeah!" It was a geek moment. They told me that they were just testing the LTE, and that we wouldn't be fully on-line for another couple of months. But wow, those first tastes of 4G LTE are ever so sweet!

 

Pics of my speed test is attached.

I saw some guys working on the tower that's within a mile from my house, in Palm Bay, today. Didn't have the time to stop and talk to them or get any pictures. Might go by there tomorrow, after I vote and see if I can speak to them and get some pics.

      Ill make my comments brief, in hopes that it creates dialog abbot our future. The synergy and blending of the 2 company's from the network perspective is a complete disaster already! If you are a Sprint Network Employee and feel everything is so far, so good. You have not yet been tortured by the superior leader. Its coming. 
      T-mobile either has a leadership directive to force out Sprint employees, or the local markets and regions are overwhelmed by the extensive knowledge Sprint folks bring and that intimidation is causing them to try and force you out. To be fair, Sprint had layers of dead weight also and most need to be bounced. 
      From the brief time I have seen their processes and procedures combined with the lack of experience, rest assured you are all in for a wild ride.
      How about unionizing?

      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.

    • LTE or LTE B? would be good.  I personally prefer to know that it is unknown.  Thanks!
    • Shoot me a diagnostic if you can catch this again! Invalid signal levels should automatically be filtered out.   Yeah, B66 and B71 are natively reported wrong on many devices due to an Android bug. SignalCheck tries to catch these and report them as B66/B71, but it's tricky because in some instances the incorrect band is actually a possible valid result. I'm not aware of B7 showing up, if someone catches that please send a diagnostic.. it is likely B66/B71 being reported incorrectly but not getting caught.
    • The report you sent showed the app was displaying B2 and the icon at the time was also B2--I checked the graphics to make sure the B2 icon didn't actually say B71, LOL.. if it happens again send another report! I don't recall any recent reports of the notification icon falling out of sync with the app itself.
    • Your G4 is running Android 6.0, which does not report EARFCN info. SignalCheck is displaying it as band 41 because PLMN ID 311490 is leading it to believe that it is a former Clear site, so it defaults to B41 unless another band is identified another way. With 311490 now being used during the merger transition, it's throwing things off. Unfortunately the app isn't going to be able to know if it's a Clear site or a merger-related thing.. perhaps I'll just remove the default band for now, since newer devices will be able to figure it out anyway. These multiple PLMNs are going to be even more problematic than they were before, because they aren't being used the same way in every market.
    • Because just like any other network, they can't guarantee coverage everywhere.
