Looks like Sprint filed three B41 permits in Clearwater too...

Its ok no band 41 so speeds are not the greatest but its usable in most areas I went to there.

Band41 is alive and well in Sarasota. The tower at Bahia Vista and Beneva has it as well as down by Clark and various other locations

Im glad its looking good down there. Might be down there this summer. The last time I was there was Christmas Eve 2014 and Sprint was really slow.

Some updates from the Tampa area. In the City, Mobilitie has just applied for another RoW permit, but no details are available yet. Of the four B41 mini macro permits pulled, one is up for final inspection today. If we have any lurkers in New Tampa, please drive by 16200 Bruce B Downs Blvd (the fire station) to see if it's live. No inspection on the other three.

 

Of the three Clearwater permits, one is up for inspection tomorrow. So there is some tangible progress it seems!

Looks like Mobilitie's February was a mere registration, but last week they applied for new RoW poles. This time in much better locations and the plans are actually being reviewed/approved unlike their last attempt. One of the locations is literally next to the main Sprint store in the area.

 

If you search for Mobilitie here you will see the permit and all of the drawings.

Sadly, Sprint let two of the City of Tampa permits expire, but did complete work on the other two. I just don't get why you file for permits and then don't follow through.

 

Mobilitie is continuing to work its way through the process and filed revised plans right before the 4th of July holiday. Hopefully, they will get the green light soon.

I may be at risk of looking crazy as the only participant in this thread, but I thought it would be good to keep a record of changes in case we get more Tampa-based participants.

One of the expired permits (BLD-17-0449236) was reissued and work completed in the last couple of weeks. Final inspection is due tomorrow. So far no activity on the other permit, but based on the quick turnaround it looks like they aren't letting permits expire for no reason anymore.  :D

My mom is like 40 mins north Tampa I'm getting anxiety about here staying. Talk about 140 mph winds and  praying to God she will be ok.

I hope  everyone in Floridia (including your mom) will make it though this hurricane.

Mobilitie has filed their 48 hour work notice for the six sites they seek to install on public RoW. Sadly, the work won't be complete until the end of March. Hoping the schedule holds!

    • By site ID do you mean cell ID in the IPhone? If yes then sort of but you have to work to match the sites up. IPhone shows the cell ID in decimal (base 10) and the maps use androids and Sprints GCI in Hexadecimal (base 16). So you would have to convert the decimal number you have to hex.  I don't know if dkyeager is going to add a column for GCI in Decimal for you to make it easier. But it would still be difficult because Cell ID would fall in a range for a site like 140513792-141845060 for 086012xx.  How I got the range with google sheets if a column where to be added W4 is a place holder for the GCI column.  =CONCATENATE(HEX2DEC(CONCAT(W4,"00")),"-",HEX2DEC(CONCAT(W4+1450,"44")))
    • Pulled up field test and I looks like I’m bouncing between a B41 and a B25 site with db strength over -115db all the time.  Which makes sense why my coverage is trash. Does the site ID correlate to the maps on the sponser side? (I still haven’t been upgraded yet)
    • I would think that 25 upload along with 41+41 download would be the best possible combination. Maybe there is some type of issue with this that I am not aware of.  It just seems to me that this combination would make band 41 so much more valuable. This needs to be active everywhere and the sooner the better unless there is some issue that we do not know about.There should be plenty of upload bandwidth available especially with 10X10  band 25.
    • Running iOS, iPhone XS which is why I switch back to sprint. Their deal was insane. So no, I’m not running SCP.
