Network Vision/LTE - Milwaukee Market (including Madison)

Recommended Posts

I work right near 164 and Dolphin Dr. I will map that area tomorrow.  Thanks for the heads up. Now if I can only get 4g near Grant park in South MIlwaukee I will be in heaven.

That's so funny. I was glaring at that exact tower today trying to spot LTE equipment. I thought "nah, they will light up Waukesha last." Guess I was wrong! Too bad it doesn't reach Mooreland Blvd.

Sitting inside my house by Manhattan and Moreland in Waukesha and I have LTE inside my house. Use to have no signal at all.

 

Yea Waukesha! I mapped some LTE down Arcadian this morning on my way to work, then picked it up again at the top of the hill on Moreland Blvd near the county jail/courthouse and right into the parking lot of my building at work! (You can see just south of the airport on Airport Rd where the purple deviates into a parking lot :)  I even had it inside the building for a little while before it finally died out. I wasn't expecting it to see it at all once I stepped inside the building.

This is what the Tech told me at the Tokay Tower, but I'm not holding my breath on "going live" (as in officially announced) or a ton of towers lighting up. I know of three that I've personally seen new equipment on that weren't broadcasting as of last week. There certainly could be more.

 

I'll be home Saturday from Michigan and I'll make the rounds.

Here is a speed test from down the block from our home. Actually drove by the tower on the way to a appointment. As someone who has complained about the signal at our house, as is roaming inside and outside our house, it's a beautiful change for once. And there is another sprint tower off of Bluemound Road on the north side of the quarries in Waukesha. Can't wait for that one to get turned on too.

Did you delete your temporary internet files? Enable cookies?

 

 

Sensorly is working fine for me today. I notice that sometimes there is a difference in the amount of new purple you see between the mobile app and the website, but the website is working for me with Google Chrome

I work right on South 76th and main in west allis. I've been losing 3g on and off all day and just had 4g for a bit. I think this bodes well for 4g at state Fair which is right across the street.

I posted a picture early last week I think... I saw guys working on cell panels on a water tower that's on 84th St, right on the other side of i94 from where state fair park is. So I know that site is in progress. That would be really cool if that site went live the first day of state fair!

Well, it's Aug 1st, and I was told by the sprint sales rep at different locations that LTE would be live in Madison.  It's in the areas around Madison, but nothing in Madison.  I was wondering if Robert has heard of anything when Madison will be getting some better signal/coverage.  I was around camp randell yesterday, and my phone was roaming  on 3g, and I could not make a call or send a text.

Has Sprint launched a market at once before though?  Usually they do it one tower at a time.

Middleton tower with nv equipment is still not active after 3 weeks when the build wss finished. I'm sick of the four dead spots on the same road I travel. Dropped call after dropped call to ne service at all. Hurry the **** up sprint and turn this shit on !!!

I have heard from a few sources that some of the towers are ready in Madison proper are ready to go, but they are still waiting on the completion of the backhaul.  You can always broadcast LTE, but if you don't have a backend connection, it is pretty useless.  I am not sure of exact timing of all this, but I have heard it should be starting to go live "soon".  Doesn't AT&T own the backhaul that Sprint will be using in Madison?

I've been told that site has been marked as complete. I know att, and charter own infrastructure in Madison, tds in Middleton. . If I had a dime for every time I heard sprint use the words "coming soon "

I'd never, ever, lend and credence to anything a sales rep at any Sprint-owned or franchised store (except for the truly educated ones here at S4GRU) says about the 4G roll out. They just don't have the same access to reliable information as we do here. They have the same information as anyone in Care would have - which is just general information.

    • Thanks for all the help! I called, left a voice message and sent them an email. Unfortunately it looks like they were pretty quick shipping since I already have a tracking number and an ETA of Monday. Hopefully you’re right and it hasn’t actually shipped yet. I am in Oklahoma, so that’s part of why the shipping is so quick to get here. I guess that could mean returns are faster too. So at least there’s that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • That stinks. My area LTE is still 10x10 I wonder if it's because I'm in a Columbia capital area? Mpls Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • Yes I did restart app. Also rebooted Moto and turned off other signal apps. No accent. Restarting app also was needed on LG V20 if you want to turn accent off (turn off setting then restart app needed). Thanks
    • Hey thanks!! 🍻 I already saw your report and have been looking into it, I'm trying to get another release pushed out this morning to give you guys another try at everything for me.. the Red Pocket SIM caught my eye as the only oddity, although SCP identifies it as T-Mobile so it should show a magenta line. Did you try restarting the app after enabling the option, just in case? (You shouldn't have to do this but who knows). I'm adding some extra logging that should show me some more details why this might be missing. Stay tuned.
    • Accent seems to work fine on my Sprint LG V20 using Android 8. I have not tested it yet switch to T-Mobile or AT&T or Verizon etc.  No accent on my Moto G7 Power Unlocked and rooted with Android 9 on T-Mobile network using Red Pocket sim. I assume accent is triggered by PLMN, but maybe by sim carrier? Diags and beer money sent for both so you can compare if needed.
