Recommended Posts

Where in Greenfield? I live right around 92nd and Layton. I want some band 26!

Cleveland and hwy 100.

I'm not too familiar with the area so if I got the wrong city name my apologies. The screenshot was taken right at the intersection going south.

How's the coverage looking over by Camp Randall? I'm on AT&T with a Nexus 5 and I'm looking to switch.

Solid 4G by Camp Randall. The two closest towers are broadcasting 4G. The State Street tower is not 4G active yet, and I'm not sure what the hold up is.

I went out driving through Racine and have been getting more and more band 26. I did not expect it to progress this quickly but I'm glasnost has.

My LTE speeds at my mom's house have nearly tripled and I can actually use everything on my phone without it buffering. Woot!

I drove by the tower on I-94 in Delafield at the Sports Commons park as I do every day and there was a truck from Pieper Power working on the base station equipment (I could clearly see this because he covered the equipment from the rain).

 

This and the other Delafield sites are listed as 3G accepted but they do not have NV antennas.  They are above power lines.

 

The truck didn't have any kind of lift equipment.

 

I know that these sites are not listed as GMO but I do wonder if they are.  Can a site be 3G accepted without NV antennas if it will get a full upgrade?

Yup, that's confirmed broadcasting already. You should become a premier member and see all the amazing information Eucker87 has assembled in the Milwaukee Market premier thread.

Has anyone been experiencing weird signal loss at all today around the Milwaukee area?

So quiet in here!

 

I noticed a WE Energies truck at the Sprint tower at the sports commons area in Delafield this morning.  I'd assume they are finally putting in NV antennas, and hopefully the other two Delafield towers follow today.

 

I'm a little surprised there's still a few towers in downtown (Cathedral Square for one) that haven't received 4G upgrades.

We have all pretty much been in the Milwaukee Premier Thread lately.  Although, even that has slowed down a bit.  Do you still have the Note 2 or have you upgraded to a Tri-band device?

Note II :(  Holding out for my upgrade in October, unfortunately.

Ahh, well here's the link, Click Here, for the thread.  At least you can see what other confirmed upgrades some of us have found.

Anyone noticed Madison speeds being significantly worse over the last week or two? Latency more than bandwidth, but both have been worse for me. Specifically the Beltline/Fish Hatch tower, but all over.

Haven't noticed anything different here.  The same of slightly better speeds and latency actually.  I spend most of my time downtown and on the west side though.

The Marketplace and Fish Hatchery towers have been real slow for me until this morning. Back up into the 20s down, 9 up. Hopefully they're preparing the B26 switch?

I have connected B26 in the area of the Fish Hatch tower. Wasn't a strong signal, so not sure if it was from that tower or another.

Work being done finally at the Delafield towers. WE Energies crews were working today on Sunday. Not sure why a little rain and some lightning bolts in the air would cause them to stop working around power lines though :)

This is at I-94 and 83. The tower a little east also is being worked on.

Yes it is!  The tower a little east at the park is live, too.  The other Delafield tower west is NOT.

Ugly speeds near Fish Hatch and Post. Rd. and can't maintain 4g after airplane mode cycle. Makes streaming of World Cup frustrating. Any hope for improvement soon? Used to be better.

According to Sprint, the tower near Fish Hatchery at the beltline has been offline sporadically. I'm sure it'll be patched up soon.

If someone wants to pm me a phone number for out there I can check it and see when they plan on being done.

    • This is why am getting a pixel three XL. I can view the screens through reading it and using network signal guru. Anyways interestingly enough AT&T has a primary 10 MHz PCS carrier and then a secondary 5 MHz carrier aggregated with the PCC Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    • So far I've found 5 or so of these small cells. I wasn't able to locate either a building or electrical permit for any of these, but I'm attributing that to the new permitting system that went live last month. Between all cellular permits in the last 2 years I only found 91 records, so a lot seems to be missing. But I am pretty confident that these are AT&T as one is in the shadow of a Verizon/TMO tower. None of them have the electric meter installed yet so not sure how long it will be before these get fired up. These have a pretty minimal footprint, it looks like the radios are under the antenna in the brown enclosure. The only thing on the ground is an H bracket setup for the power meter and fiber termination. This particular one was installed on an existing pole, but most are on newly installed poles.  Map of AT&T small cell permits, as I mentioned earlier, this list is just what I pulled from the permit portal.  View AT&T CRAN in a full screen map
