Hey guys! First, I want to thank Robert, the admin, for creating this site and his continued contributions to it. It's the only one out there that has updated information on Sprint's NV deployment.

 

Second, I want to share a picture- http://postimage.org/image/mwgnc2kpt/. Yup, that's right. Sensorly is showing eHRPD in San Diego! Check out Robert's post to learn more about eHRPD- http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/1819-what-is-ehrpd/. According to this quote from Robert,

 

eHRPD is not deployed site by site. It is usually deployed over an entire market at all at once, and sometimes just over a cluster of sites in a market. The arrival of Ehrpd is not a sign of imminence of LTE arrival. But it is a step forward.

it looks like the San Diego market now has eHRPD. As he mentions, this doesn't mean LTE anytime soon though. Judging from the fact that San Diego wasn't released as one of 100 cities to get LTE next that Sprint published as well as the below quote from Robert,

 

Based on my sources, so far Sprint's lists have only included cities that can launch or prelaunch before the end of the year.

it looks as if January 2013 is still the earliest for the expected launch for the San Diego market.

Good first post. Welcome to S4GRU! :welc:

 

Hope to see you around.

I just noticed the eHRPD too. Unfortunately, I still have miserably slow data. My parents live in Encinitas, very near where 4G was reported in the other thread, but asking them to keep an eye out for it is akin to me explaining string theory to them. I've still got my eyes (an sensors) peeled for any crews working on sites. I was hopeful an October start date, but it looks like January is more likely. Hopefully the Soft Bank deal will light a fire under their butts.

Honestly that would be a let down if the San Diego 4G LTE after not getting 4G WiMax. Honestly I just hope for consistent speedy 3G upgrades in the area.

Not sure what's going on in Del Mar(15th St at Camino Del Mar aka Old Highway 101), but I am not getting any native Sprint 3G whereas I used to before in the same spot. Now I'm on roaming, which makes no sense. While I never got excellent service, I would get ok service, that was good enough indoors. Now it's nothing. Fortunately I have Wifi at work.

Well I think I have reason to believe that the tower was down in Del Mar (same location mentioned as above) was that Sprint must have been in the process of installing eHRPD. Because that's now showing up today as opposed to EVDO-A last night.

 

The first screenshot was from last night, the second one was from today. I am also noticing improved 3G speeds as well. Robert, I assume that is Network Vision in process?

eHRPD doesn't take much to install, it's just a software update, and whole clusters or even markets are done all at once, so it's not likely that that was the reason for tower troubles. eHRPD also doesn't result in faster speeds. Robert has written a large article detailing exactly what eHRPD is. I would not attribute the change is speeds you posted to NV, rather just normal network fluctuation. If you start to get speeds of 2-2.5+Mbps on 3G, then we might be talking NV.

OH YEAH! SD is finally on the MAP!!!!!!!!!!!

 

We got a tower up and accepted. I am just excited to see that SD is being worked on and has a tower. This means that the backhaul for that area is good to go and now all that is needed is the hardware to be installed, correct me if I am wrong. (by the way, the tower is in Mira Mesa)

 

It does make me wonder which direction the crews are working...did they start near the border and working their way north, working west to east, or....you know what I mean.

 

Any sitings of trucks working on towers?

Over the past 2 or 3 weeks or so ehrpd has been turned off and on especially around CA State Route 56 corridor, Carmel Valley Rd. to Camino Del Mar in Del Mar. Ehrpd doesn't necessarily mean that 4G LTE is coming sooner.

It is a violation to post Sponsor content in public forums. The violative post and subsequent responses have been removed.

See, this is the problem with sponsor content being posted in public forums.

 

Since the subject is something that was only in a Sponsor thread it can only be posted in a sponsor forum.

It looks like the eHRPD switch has been flipped in the whole San Diego county market. I've been getting it at my parents house in Carlsbad, my condo unit in Scripps Ranch, and at the Chili's by I-8 & Mission Gorge Rd.

    • Update just showed up for both of my phones. So far I don't notice any difference, LTE TA is still reporting as 0, I was hoping the new routine might fix that. I sent a diag report from both phones in case you need any of that info. I'll let you know in a day or so if its crashing as frequently or not. 
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta release is rolling out now, and should become available on Google Play shortly! Some notable changes: New "swipe to refresh" -- flick down on the main screen, and the data will "refresh" -- I put this in quotes because it will *not* force the modem to be polled (that's unfortunately not possible), but it will 'wake up' the app and display the latest information if for some reason your screen did not automatically update. I am still working on improving this. New cell identification methods for Android 12+ devices -- new routines are available in Android 12 and this is my first attempt at implementing them. I have not seen any changes positive or negative on my Pixel 6, but hopefully someone sees improvements. I will continue exploring these methods and adding new features as I get them working. Location service auto-restart -- if your location has not changed in 10 minutes, the background location service should restart itself. This is a work in progress that I intend to optimize during beta testing. Missing/invalid TAC values included in web uploads -- this will need some testing, because I can't replicate it myself. The option to log cells with missing TAC must be enabled for this to have an impact. Feedback welcome as always!
    • Another converted keep site: Sprint eNB 9436 -> T-Mobile eNB 895067 (40.60777246698788,-74.16199692361377) Looks like they're using the FFVV-65A-R2-V1 here, as well!   Edit: Also, I know this technically isn't NYC, but here's a Jersey City conversion. Not 100% sure on either eNB. Sprint eNB 105863 -> T-Mobile eNB 876452 (40.72265196811989,-74.08804945021805)
    • More confirmations incoming! T-Mobile eNB 880561 (40.74176835140717, -73.88364207139453)   Sprint eNB 6191 / T-Mobile eNB 880065 (40.71339007010928, -73.85695387371624) Confirmed this site but was unable to get a photo because the antennas are set back from the edge of the building. I could see them from super far away but there wasn't a good area for me to pull over and snap a pic.   Sprint eNB 6189 / T-Mobile eNB 877995 (40.71183894845567, -73.83529788316665)   Sprint eNB 253741 / T-Mobile eNB 875537/875538 (40.70170960850086,-73.83302208208359)   Sprint eNB 79912 / T-Mobile eNB 875989 (40.86349197342981, -73.923456682535) — — — — — T-Mobile eNB 880536 in the Bronx isn't a Sprint conversion but rather, T-Mobile changed the eNB when they upgraded the site. The nearest Sprint site at 40.8150405321864, -73.93010756429787 still has all of its antennas up and is literally within spitting distance of two other T-Mobile sites in an area that's very industrial as opposed to residential or commercial so a keep site isn't particularly necessary. You can see on Cellmapper that the old eNB stopped broadcasting about two days after the new eNB went live.  — — — — — Also wanted to add that I spotted AT&T C-band antennas quite a bit in both Queens and the Bronx. I would expect a summer C-band launch announcement from them because they're moving FAST. At least in my area, it seem like they're upgrading at a faster pace than Verizon is. Some more pics: AT&T eNB 116408 / T-Mobile eNB 42887 in Woodhaven. This one is interesting because T-Mobile upgraded this site but in the process didn't put any Ericsson n41 antennas. There are just two of the RFS antennas that we normally get.   AT&T eNB 112047, bad pic but the arrows on the billboard are pointing right at the C-band antenna lol   — — — — — Last edit I promise: I noticed T-Mobile submit a permit to convert the keep site I found in Staten Island (Sprint eNB 75141). I 100% guessed it's location since I connected to it literally 4.5 miles across the water while inside a building. Glad to see I was right!
    • Support for the -1 TAC is good to go now, so I'm ready whenever you are!
