Thanks. I have not been able to get it in my area and it just started connecting today. I known the tower is on the west side of Mopac, just south of Parmer. Very exciting!

FYI for Sponsors, there is quite a lot of Austin news being reported in this thread over the past few days, with appropriate maps and details. Also, I just looked at Sensorly and see several tracks in North Austin filling in areas that were recently blank. In fact, I had driven those areas last week and found no LTE signal. So stuff is definitely progressing.

My phone literally JUST picked up a 4G signal, North Austin :). It's super fast as well.

Are you able to make calls when your phone says you are connected to 4g? My phone so far will not. I remember seeing something about this on the forums - or on xda- but I can not find it.

It took a few hours but I was finally able to make a call while connected to 4g. I am not sure what the deal was, but it could have been a combination of toggling airplane mode and my customs Roms option for 4g only. All's well... I hope it stays this fast, it was worth the wait!

There are a lot of towers in Austin that have already been upgraded but may not yet be turned on.

As of a few days ago. I could only confirm 3 that were live. Only one of which is in South Austin. (On South Lamar. Supposedly the one right behind Matt's El Rancho.)

 

The range that the signal can be detected can be over 5 miles from a single tower.

 

When Posting sightings it would help if you could get a screen shoot or share the results of the LTE debug menu mentioned in another thread here:

 

 

This gives not only the LTE signal strength but also the Tower ID. All the Signal hits I have in SouthWest Austin have all been from Tower ID = 399.

 

This might help in determining if additional towers that have been turned on verses a current tower available in an un-mapped area.

 

Just Looking Forward to more consistent filled in 4g in Austin and wanting to help track the progress.

What is Tower ID? Where are you reading that? Apparently you are referring to the Serving Cell value on my GS3's LTE Engineering screen. That ID seems to refer to a sector, not to a tower, which typically has three sectors.

 

As far as tracking details in Austin goes, as a Sponsor you have access to this thread, where we recently have published many details of live LTE rolling out in Austin, along with the privileged S4GRU tower mapping data that we really can't discuss in this public forum. We have correlated several towers with multiple sectors to the exclusive S4GRU Sponsor maps.

Thanks for the Correction. I was under the impression that Servicing Cell was some sort of Tower reference code.

 

Thanks for the Link as well.

Hi

 

I was wondering if anyone else here have been experiencing not being able to get onto the 3g network here. I have been getting spotty 4g LTE signal off of i35 and parmer. But as for my 3g signal, it goes back and forth from 3g to the circle. I don't know if this is due to the upgrades that are going on or if it's a system wide issue. right now, I can't really use my iphone 5 on 3g.

San Marcos is minutes away from one of the greatest BBQ towns in America: Lockhart, Texas.

I'm getting weepy thinking about Black's BBQ where I had the best smoked beef ribs of my life.

Texas BBQ and LTE, a match made in heaven.

Blacks BBQ is the best. Ive been eating there off and on since the early 70's. My dad, even longer. My kids have eaten there and Im hoping my grandkids will too.

New member here. Was bored today and went around Austin looking for some LTE on the iPhone 5. Found a live tower off 183/McNeil (on Technology Blvd) which was transmitting LTE. Got around 23m/8m w/~55ms pings on Speedtest.

 

I saw some crews upgrading a tower across the street from my apartment near Pleasant Valley and Riverside a couple weeks ago. So far no LTE signal from there, but I hope they light it up soon!! I'm excited...

Welcome to S4GRU.

 

You might check out this thread over in the Sponsor forums, where we are collecting and documenting such detail about live towers in Austin in a shared spreadsheet. Your contributions there have already helped! (We knew about this tower, but we had not captured the full Cell Identity for this sector. I just harvested that detail from your post for the spreadsheet.)

I work at 183 and Oak Knoll and have seen 4G go up and down the past week. I'm assuming it is from the same tower Doug is reporting. I also got 4G at Taco Deli today at MOPAC and Duval. Speed was a little slower then what I get at work 9.5M but still fast.

 

boomerbubba I tried to get into the sponsor forum you linked to but it is asking me for a forum password.

 

Thanks!

Running speed test from my hotel at Congress street bridge on the 11th floor facing south, I only get 385ms ping, 1.15 down and it shows nothing going up. Anyone else having issues in Austin lately?

In that location you would have a pretty weak signal. What is your LTE RSRP from your Engineering screen in the debug menu?

I live nearly equidistant from the tower and im pretty surprised you even had a signal,
