Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

Recommended Posts

My new doctor's office is served by a small cell outside. It's only one carrier of Band 41 but the performance by of it is pretty wild.

do the small cells come with 3 carrier aggregation?

 

That post wasn't about small cells.... but no, small cells currently only support 2 carriers and 2xCA.

* 2nd carrier. SCP does not indicate carrier aggregation.

Was in Queens on Friday and connected to a B41 MM site. I believe it was one of the grey box sites on a pole due the the amazing signal. It was somewhere near https://goo.gl/maps/QSxZahYUC2C2 . After loosing connection to that site while driving east on Metropolitan Ave I saw a building located here https://goo.gl/maps/wYq3AoaJeWQ2 .  I believe I sawSprint Antennas for B25/B25/B41. Signal Check Pro Confirmed and I was able to hit 30Mbps with B41 and SCP showed a 3rd Carrier.  I don't have a screenshot for that. 

 

 

MM B41 site 2XCA

Did anyone else see this tweet? https://twitter.com/guengott68/status/897867126756790272

 

Pretty cool to see what exactly is inside one of the grey boxes I see all over NYC and now I've seen in Queens.

 

Yup! saw that.

 

I believe it's Nokia flexi zone...

That's not a sprint site. There is a Sprint Site across the street and it looks like another carrier or 2 is on there as well.

Connected to B41 for the 1st time in a subway station @ 59th Street . I know its existed in some of them but I have never connected to it before. You would think all the major station like 34th, 42nd, and 14th Streets would have it but I have never found it there. Every station luckily has the 2nd B25 carrier.

Is anyone having Google Voice issues?  Not sure if it's a NYC area problem so that's why I'm posting it here.  I'm not getting any texts.  I can send and I can make/receive calls, but nothing inbound.

Yeah I found the issue on repl.it reddit as well... glad it wasn't just my account.

 

(Lesson planning at 10:30pm using repl.it and my brain defaulted there)

There are COWs along Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn in preparation for J'ouvert and the Labor Day/West Indian day parade. It's not Sprint though as far as I can tell. I wonder if they'll put up some.

 

It's anticipated that there will be between 1-3 Million people in attendance so it's definitely necessary.

A week old, but these are the fastest speeds I've experienced with Sprint, by far. This was near NYU. B41 near me is bogged down to EVDO speeds or slower during the day.

Where is it that your speeds have slowed down? Have you reported it on my Sprint?

Far Rockaway and multiple areas of Long Island (technically another market, I know), I've reported poor performance in the past, but I can't say I ever noticed any improvements.

 

My only service this evening has come from a fringe B26 signal, from what I assume is a distant tower (I need to become a sponser to confirm).

Only problem is that my phone keeps switching back to a slightly stronger B41 signal, despite no data going through lol.

You should signup for a magic box, don't know if the sign up is still open, but you should also keep reporting your issues on my sprint app.

 

I have noticed that GMO's and also mini macros are being added in LI, so theirs that as well.

You can't sign up anymore but I still got one by emailing and explaining my situation to booster@sprint.com and asking for one. I don't know how often that method works for getting one but I got a response within a few hours telling me that they placed the order for one for me and that it would arrive in 5-6 business days.

Weird. I connected to a 2nd carrier MM SC with EARFCN 40142 but it only at 15 MHz BW. Speed is at 26 Mb Down/8 Up taken at 1:20 PM today. Located at whitehall st and water st lamppole. No Carrier Aggregation between BW: 15 and 20 Mhz.

Very odd, this was one of the first Small cells found in NYC. Pretty sure they all ran at 20Mhz. Manhattan has plenty of spectrum and 3xCA is already deployed. Maybe its an error on the engineering screen. 

What device are you using?

      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 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.
