Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market


Recommended Posts

Queens and SI seem to be the only boroughs that don't have as much NV work as the other boroughs. How has wrk been in the Bronx. There hasn't been much talk about them for a while.

I was on lunch today at tmobile checking out their plan prices. One of the reps came up and asked what service you on? I said Sprint and she immediately went on this rant on how sprint is slow, ouch

Its finally happened!!!! Sprint overtook Tmobile on Netindex in Manhattan!!     Next...Verizon!!

This is awesome!     UPDATE: I dont think this was meant for public consumption. Post removed from FB. Making it more awesome.

Sprints 3G has always been slow! I left from sprint two weeks ago cause of that. NV is taking way to long to be completed.

 

I don't blame you. When NV is finished and done, that's when anyone should decide to come back. The upgrades are killing me. Having spotty and poor coverage due to upgrades are normal these days and you would be lucky to be in the parts of the city where there is LTE. Sensorly is accurate up to a certain point. There are spots that had LTE and was mapped but are no longer getting that signal due to adjustments.

using sprint for 7 train ride from queensboro plaza to Flushing is a joke now. half of the time the phone has 4g signal but the signal is coming from very far away with worse than -120dbm. turning off the 4g doesn't really help because 3g signal is very poor due to tower being down because of NV. at least in Flushing, the 4g is very good since there are five towers live with 4g and I have pretty good speed at home. the quarterly report from sprint showed 643 million dollar loss with loss of 560,000 contracts, but with significant improvements on net loss from previously quarterly report. the loss of contracts are due to Nextel sites going down. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323789704578442454292712928.html

Nothing new other than the spotty LTE. When you have though its good.

Everyday it seems to be a bit more consistent..its not perfect but its less spotty as time goes on..

The thing is... everywhere but Queens, S.I. and Lower Manhattan is getting less spotty. Living example right here as I live and work and visit places where LTE doesn't exist. But it will be better in a year.

I left to T-Mobile and got the iPhone 5 with them. Which i can be unlocked to use in the US. I returned my iPhone 5 to sprint and they waived my cancellation fee. T-mobile will have LTE in NYC by mid June.

All I can say is that I am starting to get LTE signal on and off in my home in the Bronx. Most places I go has LTE in the city, and since I bought my p[hint to talk LTE is a bonus for 10.00 more.....wTF I can understand people wanting to down load a beak neck speeds, but to go pay more for it makes me wonder WTF the gripe is all about .....but then again I don't need to have the fasted down loads as long as I can make and receive text and calls at a fair price.

 

 

The last time that I checked Verizon's cheapest plan is 90.00 for 300 minutes and 1gig of LTE usage......man people are loaded, desperate or stupid....pick one.Sprint will be a leader by the end of next year any one leaving for a "QWIK" fix today will be locked into slow ass high priced contracts else ware,

I went to the Yankee game tonight and had LTE throughout the whole stadium. Over 30,000 people there! Check out these speeds! http://tinypic.com/v...pic=2143y82&s=5 :(

 

On the bright side, at least it didn't overload the tower and you get 0 data going to or from the cell site. Some BRS TDD-LTE seems to be in order for gatherings like that.

Actually it took me quite a few times to get the app to even start doing the test! This was considered good! It gets me nervous what will happen if people hog the bandwidth around NYC! Can they add more speed to more populated areas?

      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.

    • A ton of them are from Extenet which afaik is Verizon's primary small cell partner here. I also see a bunch for Mobilitie which was Sprint's primary partner and Crown Castle which is T-Mobile's primary partner. I wonder if T-Mobile plans on contracting both for small cells going forward. If so, that's a lot of combined potential small cells, though still less than Extenet. By far the least are New Cingular which is likely AT&T. The wildcard is Transit Wireless who seems to be branching out of the subway system and is deploying quite a few new sites.
    • NYC DOITT database was updated about a month ago. Imported all the new oDAS node locations into my map. Haven't yet spotted anything with the new design in my travels through Williamsburg & Bushwick. Almost 1400 newly proposed nodes (since 3/5/21) is pretty incredible, though. Made my way up to Harlem and City College this past week. The site (eNB 55893) covering the north side of the campus STILL hasn't been upgraded from B2/B66 (dual APX16s). Pulled ~70Mb/s down on what is essentially an empty campus. Wish I knew what the deal is with that site. I almost wonder if it might be easier to work with the school and keep the Sprint site on top of the engineering building (Steinman Hall, across the street from their current site), instead.
    • Just saw this permit for a very rural area:  https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/21110744CBP/Snohomish County It sure looks like a T-Mobile site number (SE01794A) and mentions "ADD 2 ABIL FOR N1900 N2100" First time I have seen a permit mention n1900 or n2100 (would this be n2/n25 and n66?). In fact, I searched all of the major locals on that site and not a single other permit mentions n1900 or n2100 (and none mention n2 or n66).
