Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market


Recommended Posts

 

I was curious about that, considering that they go to whichever tower's ready to be upgraded, no matter the location (I think?), it's interesting to see that the vast majority of those towers are in The Bronx. The NV rollout in other markets seem to be a bit more random.

 

If this pattern continues I wonder which borough (or Westchester) is next once The Bronx is completed.

 

It may be just be that permitting, access and what not is easier on sites in the Bronx. So, they get done first. The other boroughs may not be completed the same way. But again, that's speculation, we'll just have to steer what happens.

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!!

Had an interesting wireless story today... Drove up to Lake Welch NY. We got there way too late and ended up not being able to get in the park due to it being at capacity.   So a bunch of us pull o

You never know. Maybe Sprint will accept a ton of these 3G sites as 4G sites all of sudden. And then you have widespread LTE all of a sudden. Many will be happy. Many will be sad because there isn't more expansive coverage.

The bronx is coming along nicely (im happily getting about 15-25mb sec near my home) but its a relief to see other boroughs finally get some love...

 

I got LTE signal today at Paulding, Gun Hill and Boston road, Arnow and Boston road towards White Plains road..21mb down 5.8mbs up

 

I tried to sensorly it but for some reason it gave me an error when I tried to map it

Those of you in the Bronx that are getting LTE and fast speeds are very lucky :) over here a woodstock our speed are still in the 0.15 :( Aww man, I need fast speed and I want it now!!! With all seriousness I could wait.. I only been waiting 1 year.

Remember that tower that had consistently good 3G until recently.

 

Well turns out they were indeed working on it becuase now I got LTE baby.....19 MBps down and 9 Mbps up -97 dbm signal strength.

 

For some reason Sensorly doesn't want to map the location. Keep saying 0 LTE points.

You need to be able to connect to GPS for it to map points. If you're indoors, this is likely your problem.

Bronxdale Av & Rhinelander Av

You should be able to accumulate a decent amount of points on sensorly considering that its a blank spot on the map and you do have a decent signal

I didn't realize that at first either but it makes sense that it can't plot points on a map without knowing where you are on the map! ;)

 

I knew it required GPS to map points but I didn't realize that the phone wasn't able to lock my cooridinates, hence causing Sensorly iuuses

That's bananas. I've never seen speeds in the 30 range in the Bronx. I can't wait till lte coverage is widespread throughout the city. I'm looking forwardtotheday when all NYC has NV complete so that I won't have to rollback to 1x rtt speeds in some areas.

I believe this is the tower.

 

I was about 100 feet away when I got the 31 MBps speed

 

That doesn't look like Sprint panels, but you certainly are very close to get those speeds! Perhaps you can use the sponsor maps to better define where the tower is?

You are right.

 

I assumed I was on Morris Park Av but it was actually Bronxdale Av

      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.
