Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

Recommended Posts

Now if only NYC would get rid of MSG... It's an ugly building that takes up so much space in an already crowded area because of Penn Station and the soon to be mall and train station at the Farley Post Office Building.

I know you guys have a strict policy against posting Speedtest results in here but I just had to share this. It’s almost as fast as my home WiFi. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Sprint out such speeds. I’m amazed lol. 1b2aad029a0fbab61344e03b8e11e3aa.jpg

There's no such policy. Posting extremely slow speed tests without context or just to complain is not tolerated.

(For example, "Look at this ridiculously slow speed! Sprint sux," would not be tolerated if there wasn't more information).

There’s not point to that. If Sprint sucks so much then just switch carriers lol. But in this case Sprint is doing an amazing job. I remember when Network vision first started, they’ve had tremendous growth since then. Super proud of them.

When I first switched to Sprint, I couldn’t place a call at my house. Today I can easily pull 130-140 mbps download on LTE at home. They’ve certainly come a long way.

I ask this a lot but has Sprint switched to Config 2 in NYC yet? That 86/5 speed test made me think they might have. I heard Washington D.C. recently switched to Config 2.

I did notice the change on my nearest home lamppost pico cell, with speedtest 77/6. Since it usually with high upload speed on this post.  And also I did the speedtest at my home is on macro cell, finally got 98/5 with higher download speed that usually get 67/11 back then.

So I just checked at I am usually on wifi in my home. But facing my macro tower this morning I got this https://imgur.com/8TUWIur, never pop close to 40 ever in the area. And uploads are consistently meh... Another link with higher upload but doesn't cross 8 up. speedtest https://imgur.com/gallery/bC8zM

That's quite a lot of evidence confirming the switch. The reason I'm so anxious for it is because it is one of the steps needed to achieve gigabit LTE. Now all we need is 4x4 MIMO and 256QAM on the download.

Seems that Config 2 is live in the Bronx. This site has never hit over 45mb (and it's been years since I've seen that high of a speed), I just hit nearly 60mb DL/7mb UL

Same here in Midtown. The site that covers my office normally hits download speeds of 50 Mbps at most and uploads above 8 Mbps. Just ran a few tests and I'm reaching 65 Mbps download and can't get faster than 4 Mbps upload.

Lol that has to be fake. *sarcasm* I've never seen sprint go faster than my home wifi. I have FIOS 100mbs set up & usually I get around 110. But Sprint putting out 200+, that is INCREDIBLE.

Looks like T1 and T5 just got 3xCA DAS on air in JFK. 

Especially nice to see T5 since that's one of the most traveled on.

Just saw that tweet. But I noticed he only said tridband DAS and not 3xCA. He mentioned 3xCA for the Chicago airport DAS and those speeds were over 300mbps. Could these JFK DAS be only 2x CA?

 

edit: anyone know if the other terminals have a DAS. The parking lot for T4 has a triband 3xCA site it that covers most of the terminal

Right outside of T5 is 3xca. But somebody has to be indoors to confirm.

I found a Band 41 site in Brooklyn that is messed up. It's giving me pings of over 100ms and download speeds struggle to get over 1Mbps. I reported it in the My Sprint app and hopefully others have noticed and reported it too. Otherwise, download speeds have definitely increased across the board. I'm able to get up to 68Mbps in my house on Band 41 now.

I have found out that the essential phone doesn't work well with clearwire towers trying to report it, so far no luck i even had emailed essential support no response, i hope is a software and hardware issue

      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.
