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.

It's another tower and I know which one.....the answers are hiding in the premier forums.....join us on the dark side.

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.

    • Sorry, I wasn't clear, the Evergreen Hospital MM setup I already located a while ago. The eNBs for those were: B6BD7, B6BD9, B6BDB. I meant for the cluster of MM which I can't locate in Kirkland. Just like Totem Lake and the John Muir school, there are three MM nearby with their eNB separated by 2 digits and one reports as an MM/SC. As expected, SE03XC353 tends to overwhelm them in most normal areas, making location more difficult. It seems that their job is to fill in the "shadows" for SE03XC353. My guess is all three are located at the aforementioned Clear site in Kirkland, but I am not 100% certain on that yet. I will drive around to see if I can collect better data on CellMapper. As an aside, it seems like it is common in a cluster of three for one of them to report as an MM/SC on SignalCheck. Even the one I found which had the last eNB off by one, instead of two, still had one of them as an MM/SC. 
    • Yes, Sprint was required by the US government to decommission all Huawei equipment due to security concerns.  Sprint has historically had issues with the property owner of that Motel 6. It was one of the last sites upgraded to LTE, and it will probably be one of the last sites upgraded to triband.  That permit is for the Clear site by Kirkland marina. There is a mini-macro setup on the roof of Evergreen Hospital by Totem Lake.

    • That makes sense, I said "loves" strictly because I have encountered so many of them near me. I didn't know about the Huawei aspect of things. They are very well located normally, providing coverage for weak spots from the "main" tower.   As for Evergreen, that would make sense, it's a high location in what has become a VERY busy area. I am guessing that is why the tower over on the Motel 6 nearby has not been upgraded. Also, that is good to know about all of the MM clusters. That combined with this permit makes me think that I am correct on the location. The only thing I need to determine if all three eNB are at the same site.
