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. 

 

Have 1 bar standing in my living room:

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.

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?

    • what sort of speeds (actual numbers) are we talking here?
    • Long time lurker here, long time SCP user.  FYI...  I'm the guy in the bar that had SC on his phone!  LOL First, I just wanted to thank you for this awesome tool.   Second, I do have an occasional freezing of the app on my Galaxy S20 Ultra.  It's usually when switching back and forth between the engineering screen to check CA, SCP, and the Speedtest app, to make sure it's still running.  I have to go in and force close it to get it to run again. Now for a question: how accurate is the distance from the tower in SCP?  I've had a few times that I can't figure out where it's picking up a tower, and now that I think about it, it could be a SC.  Since the S20 U is now on T-Mobile, there are no site notes for the towers, and I'm trying to figure out where they are!
    • So, I'm late to the party here.  Columbus, Ohio market.  I've had my S20 Ultra since a few days after launch (late pre-order) so I've been through the stuff mentioned through this thread.  My issue is 5G.  Before 5G was turned on, my speeds on T-Mobile were great!  Maybe a bit slower than Sprint in a speedtest, but latency was better, and it "felt" faster.  Then 5G was turned on, and I found out to check in the *#0011# service mode screen to see if n71 was working.  It was, I was happy.  Within a couple days, that totally changed.  It seemed that I rarely got n71, and data was SLOW, maybe 1/3 of the speed as before 5G was turned on.  When I do see n71, speeds are really good. For instance, 2 days ago, it was hitting n71 without active data transferring.  Then yesterday and today, not even a blip of n71 when actively transferring.  I found that switching the network mode to LTE/CDMA got my speeds back to good.  It seems that I must get a profile update push when not looking and it turns 5G back on, or if I have to restart and forget to reset it.   Is anyone else seeing this behavior?  
    • Just got off the phone with a Sprint Business rep. According to him the cell site nearest me is now running n41. Which explains why my LTE-41 speeds are a fraction of what they were a few months back. He mentioned a pretty awesome deal on an S20 if I sign a contract, with a $10 price increase per month in exchange for going from 3 GB of hotspot to 50 GB (which I've wanted anyway), so chances are good I'll bump up to the S20. Apparently it's still a Business Fusion plan so I don't have to pay $$$ extra per month for the phone either. Anyone heard of a $55/mo (or $75/mo) Business Fusion plan with 50GB of hotspot? Any video/VPN throttling to speak of there?
