Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

Recommended Posts

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.

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...

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?

      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.

    • My s21 has the Sept security update ready for install this morning.
    • Ah, I see.  Thanks for those details! It is great to see some posts on this subject.
    • I was reading the FCC filing for the Pixel 6 yesterday and saw that it included n258 - I was wondering what that was. That will be my next phone so nice to know it will support this new spectrum. 
    • The decommissioning of Sprint sites has started, the optimistic worrying starts about which sites they will keep and convert. Only 2 out of the 3 B41 sectors are on Cellmapper, and 0 B25/26 sectors. I think another site near me also got turned off/decom'd, but I haven't checked it yet. I guess its time to start paying more attention to Sprint sites... Link to street view of the site via Google Maps ,  Link to the site in Cellmapper .

    • Haven't gone anywhere yet, so I can't speak to benefits.  My issue was that I was out on Monday morning and it appears that T-Mobile has turned off several Sprint towers near me.  I was sitting in a parking lot near Landmark Mall on -118 dBm Band 25 because two of the sites I used to connect to there were apparently not running, so data would barely move.  This is in addition to my home site which has been off for several weeks, but that wasn't an issue because I don't use wireless data at home.  But if they're starting to turn off Sprint sites and leave holes, then there's really no alternative. So far, I've only seen T-Mobile, but that makes sense since I've only been home and my home site is gone on Sprint, so the site I had been connecting to was a lot weaker.  I'll have to see when I'm out and about, possibly this weekend. When ROAMAHOME came out, I had that removed and blocked from my account since T-Mobile's network is so lousy, so my lines were not automatically pushed to MULTOCN.  I had to have the block removed and then MULTOCN manually added.  That's probably not typical. - Trip
