Hello from Plano, TX

Hello from Plano, TX, specifically, around 33.0492,-96.759.

I'm using a Galaxy Nexus, and so far, very little LTE love for me in my part of town.

Surprised a bit, as the LTE map in my part of DFW is full on 'red'.

I'm getting a strong 3G (SID 4120)

 

Anyone in town near me getting LTE?

 

Couple of other questions; Any PRL advice? I'm on 'stock' 24006, and have used a few, like 00001 , but didn't know if anyone had any favorited. Also, other than roaming, and since I don't think my geography uses 800SMR SIDs, not sure if I need to mess with mine.

 

 

Finally, anyone have any specific Plano/ North Dallas resources like maps or sites they'd recommend?

 

Thanks for the community.

Welcome to S4GRU! :welc:

 

If you change your device from the 25006 PRL, you may have problems getting LTE connection. This was something was recently discovered by one of our S4GRU PRL writers and I verified in my Waco testing recently.

 

Additionally, we have in our Sponsor section interactive maps that show all Sprint sites, as well as all completed Network Vision/LTE sites in the country.

    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.  
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
    • Same with factory unlocked
