I'm naive I guess but am confused as to Sensorly mappings of LTE. If the signal in many places is fleeting at best all this does is tease us-no?

 

How will the mapping differ say 6 months from now? Thx.

It's not weak nor fleeting if the Sensorly measurements were taken next to the live LTE site. Mapping only occurs where Sensorly users drive and report using the Sensorly app. 6 months from now there will be dozens more sites live. However, they will only be shown on Sensorly, if users map them out using the Sensorly app.

First post, but have been following this thread for a while now. Just got my GS4 on Monday last week(up from GS2). We were out on the boat on Michigan waiting for the fireworks, I had 4G from as far south as the Lake Express dock. And as far north as UWM. When we came in and hit the river, the 4G would come in and out.

 

By the time we pulled off and headed home it was back to 3G.

 

It was exciting for me as I haven't had any 4G experience so the speeds were really cool. My wife has a GS3 and she had 4G signal as well.

 

I wish they'd hurry up and get it going out here in Waukesha, having it for that little bit has really made me want it more.

On my sensorly app I have LTE on the streets, but since I live a good distance in between two streets, I do not get LTE. So close, yet so far.

Connected to 4g signal at Walmart on

East Capitol, must be from the estabrook tower.

Just had LTE for a second on cass and kilbourne, now it is back to 3G. Testing the tower maybe?

I would bet you briefly connected to the tower that is covering the lakefront.

I have a friend who says he is getting 62 down and 17 up in downtown Milwaukee.  Is that possible?  In Milwaukee?

Pics or it didn't happen!

Asked for a complete screen shot.

Yup, the Estabrook tower is certainly broadcasting LTE finally! 

 

I took a walk around the Capital / Oakland intersection area while running some errands today, mapping everything on Sensorly. I'll do some more mapping tomorrow.

Snapped a screen shot, wasn't able to run a speed test before it lost LTE and went back to 3G.

Was able to get a speedtest in during the early innings of the Brewer game at Miller Park.  Not a very consistent signal, but I still thought I was dreaming because it didn't take 20 minutes and 40% battery for me to check in on Foursquare.

Im at Aurora St. Lukes. Just saw i lost eHRPD and EVDO lit up. I just toggled airplane mode and LTE came on. Will try and go outside to grab a signal and update.

No way! Wait, so you're out in New Berlin on National Ave? That's awesome! They are getting closer to the areas that I frequent! Waukesha and Greenfield!

Aww. There's also an Aurora St. Lukes Medical Center out in New Berlin on National Ave. It's not as big though. Oh well, at least there's more progress going on. That's all I really care about.

I wish that was where it came online...  thats pretty close to where I work.

Update

 

I still have been in and out of 3g/1X. I am now not even connecting to 3G. It seemed Signal Check Pro listed LTE when i switched to Airplane mode. Im 99% sure there is work going on at the tower.

 

Tower is listed as SID 4153, NID 84, BID 543

Just had LTE on the Eastside by Maryland and Newberry. Lost it at Locus. Friend stated he has it at UWM Union. Confirming in a few minutes.

I'm so confused. SignalCheck Pro is giving me an address for the tower I'm connected to. But, the tower/antenna doesn't show up on antennasearch.com and when I drive to that location, there is nothing around. I want to physically see these towers. What am I doing wrong?

    • It’s been a while since I’ve posted here since I’ve switched away from Sprint but I happened upon your thread while researching an upgrade to my Rural Internet Setup and I thought you might be able to help some   I currently have a MoFi 4500 with two 35ft long LMR400 cables going from inside my cabin up to two panel antennas on the roof https://imgur.com/a/NpOjzwM   It’s working ok but I think I’m missing out on a lot of bandwidth since bands 14 and 66 have been added to the area and I could get better signal with a modem mounted behind the antennas (eliminating a lot of line loss).   I’ve been looking at mounting a Telit LM960 or Quectel EM20 in a panel behind the antennas outside along with a Golden Orb compatible router powered by POE and adding another pair of antennas for 4x4 MIMO.   Since you’ve tested both the EM20 and the LM960, which do you prefer? It appears the LM960 actually has better CA combinations for AT&T’s network even though it’s theoretically not as high level of LTE technology category as the Quectel.   It appears to me most of the higher order carrier aggregation on the Quectel is with CBRS or LTE unlicensed which I don’t think I’ll ever see in this rural Edge of Cell area.   Also does it appear to you that having these installed outside would be a reliability issue? It gets really hot here in the summers with plenty of severe weather and it can be cold in Winters. The LM960 at least appears to have a pretty broad operating temperature range.   Any advice is appreciated, thanks!     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • Yeah, agreed, it's pretty ridiculous, but that's typical Sprint for you. I doubt T-mobile will put any work into fixing things like this, since they will want to get rid of B41 femtos to refarm the spectrum. Plus they're moving people to the T-Mobile network anyway. I imagine their CellSpot will work better with VoLTE, with the caveat that it doesn't have as good of range as Sprint femtos (at least the magic box). And/or they'll release a 5G version eventually. But either way, we likely won't see any changes or improvements to Sprint femtos going forward. If you have a UPS, it's worth putting the Pebble, your router, and modem on it. It's certainly nice to have working internet for a while when the power goes out, and then you won't lose VoLTE either. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
    • I just figured it couldn't hurt for it to have a fresh reboot every week at 4 am on Sunday while not in use. I don't know if it particularly NEEDS that but the point is that any type of power/internet failure knocks the damn VoLTE out for 2-3 weeks which is ridiculous. I'll disable it for now and see if the router becomes unstable.
    • Yeah that would definitely do it. It keeps getting pushed to the back of the queue.   The guy I spoke to was more in engineering than tech support. He's helped me with a few other issues in the past, so I trust what he says.   Why do you have your router set to reboot weekly? If you have to do that for it to be stable, perhaps look for a new/better router. Mine is at 337 days of uptime. I only reboot when there's an update.      
    • Odd... I escalated as high as I could go, and spoke to a technical supervisor, who told me in no uncertain terms, there is NOTHING that is within their control (in order to enable VoLTE). She told me it is a technical limitation of the device which I said I thought was bullshit. She wanted to leave it at that but I told her I wasn't happy with that answer and wanted an actual explanation as to why they would even offer a product which they had no control over and which took 2-3 weeks to activate fully, and which resets every time the power goes out, and she said she would send my ticket to corporate compliance and they would call me back. I also realized my router is set to reboot once a week which knocks the connection out. I'm wondering if that is causing this Pebble to never activate VoLTE.
