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.

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.

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?

    • I definitely don't need more coverage... just the damn VoLTE activated so I can get calls and MMS at the same damn time. Like I said, it isn't a huge deal, just annoying that this is even a problem in the first place. They told me AR4 are out of stock and they have no idea when they'll be back, nor can they put me in touch with someone that knows. They said they just have to keep checking and see if it comes back in stock. Once again, I said that is nonsense, but what can I really do about it. For right now, the Pebble boosting the LTE, and using wifi calling, is working fine for my needs. Much better than the AR2.5 I was using which didn't work at all.
    • Yeah VoLTE took forever on Airave 4s, but it's definitely working now. Supposedly it was enabled months ago, but not necessarily for existing devices (only new ones). I had to factory reset mine to get it back in the queue, but after 2.5 weeks it got it. My Magic Box with wired backhaul, on the other hand, got it only 3 days after a factory reset. It seems that a lot of femtos setup before VoLTE launched never got put back in the queue (particularly femtos using WiFi or Ethernet backhaul), hence the necessary factory reset. I'm not sure if an Airave 4 would offer substantial coverage improvement over the Pebble, other than having CDMA as a fallback. If you need to cover a larger area, you can use both actually. They should handoff to one another with VoLTE, just keep them sufficiently far apart to minimize interference. And you'll probably have to tell Sprint it's for use at a different address, but they won't actually check where it's deployed. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
    • Do it quickly.  My impression is T-Mobile really wants to move people to their network ASAP, even if it causes lots of pain. August 1 is rumored to be the end of Sprint retail.
    • I'm trying to switch over to the Airave 4 now that the've enable VoLTE on them. That should fix this problem. The only reason I got the Pebble over the AR4 is because VoLTE wasn't enable on it yet.
    • My router typically only gets rebooted for firmware updates or major functionality changes that I have implemented. Otherwise stays up for years.  Last time it was down is when Hurricane Ike remnants hit Ohio in 2008 and caused week long power outages, which killed local internet in a few days (I have two ISPs, UPSes, generator).  ISP's battery backups and generator use had improved considerably since that time. Making changes appears to be the greatest reason for router instability. So put internet connections on a UPS,  reboot after major changes, and otherwise enjoy.
