NV in New Jersey???

Recommended Posts

Im starting to notice better 3G speeds in a couple of place i go through out Jersey, mostly northern jersey. When i do speed test it will get a high as 1.8mbps down and 1mbps up but then without warning ill start to see terrible speeds. Hopefully this mean theyre doing some NV work in Northern Jersey, is there anybody that is seeing sprint do work around there area?

Also do the Mods know the NV status of North Jersey?

This is not Network Vision related. Its related to network maintenance upgrades. The ones tracked at network.sprint.com.

Robert - can you advise why the band aid fixes (the one this user is discussing here) seem to have this same issue? The issue I speak of is ranging from fantastic speeds (approaching 2mbps) and then, just as suddenly, jumping back to horrific speeds. I have the same problem here in Georgia and it seems to be common to the "band-aided" towers. Is there anything inherent in how this process works that might lead to the wildly varying speeds associated with these towers? Thanks in advance!

Most of the time when it says they are adding a speed upgrade, they are adding 1 (and in a few instances 2) T1 lines. A T1 line does not add much capacity. So in the beginning, it's good enough to relieve the burden initially from the amount of traffic the site currently carries, and speed improves.

 

But once users start to realize the site is running faster, they start using it more and quickly overwhelm the additional bandwidth added. There is no substitute to new high capacity NV backhaul. Additional T1's are not a permanent solution.

    • It would not surprise me if T-Mobile leases UScellular's used spectrum while converting sites for up to a year.
    • Here's the spectrum breakdown by band. There's some 2.5 in there as well. The remaining spectrum is definitely enough to keep running FWA on while finding a buyer, and since the towers aren't conveying with the subs and spectrum there's nothing stopping USCellular from competing with T-Mobile on FWA until Verizon or AT&T decide the spectrum is valuable enough to take off TDS's hands. If they go that route, I wouldn't be surprised if FWA gets rebranded under TDS.
    • Transaction Details and Financial Profile T-Mobile will pay approximately $4.4 billion for the assets being acquired from UScellular in the transaction in a combination of cash and up to $2.0 billion of debt to be assumed by T-Mobile through an exchange offer to be made to certain UScellular debtholders prior to closing. To the extent any debtholders do not participate in the exchange, their bonds will continue as obligations of UScellular and the cash portion of the purchase price will be correspondingly increased. Following the closing of the transaction, UScellular will retain ownership of its other spectrum as well as its towers, with T-Mobile entering into a long-term arrangement to lease space on at least 2,100 additional towers being retained. T-Mobile does not expect the transaction to impact the company’s 2024 guidance or 2024 authorized shareholder return program. T-Mobile expects this transaction will yield approximately $1.0 billion in effective total opex and capex annual run rate cost synergies upon integration, with total cost to achieve the integration currently estimated at between $2.2 billion to $2.6 billion. The company plans to reinvest a portion of synergies toward enhancing consumer choice, quality and competition in the wireless industry. The transaction, which is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions and receipt of certain regulatory approvals, is expected to close in mid-2025.
    • The way I heard it, these were for sites that T-Mobile would not be keeping, and presumably is how they would handle decommissioning the equipment from them.  This would presumably happen because they're already on the tower or on an adjacent tower.  For example, in Keysville, VA, T-Mobile is on a tower directly adjacent to the existing US Cellular-owned tower. https://maps.app.goo.gl/kefNy451QXYFSqi5A T-Mobile at left; at right is the US Cellular-owned tower with both US Cellular and Verizon gear on it. - Trip
    • My gut opinion is they are waiting for technology improvements. C-band is seeing some of those emerge now which will extend its useful range and carrying capacity.  Given it current short range, 24GHz is best for places where people are seated in sizeable numbers, although I would not rule out business pico cells. Of course, Verizon is using mmWave small cells quite well for FWA by placing them outside large apartment buildings that only allow one ISP with outrageous charges. UScellular and some Verizon have been using it to do the job of microwave links to preserve licences (4 needed per county).
