Got 1x800 in the Tampa Bay Times Forum along with intermittent TD-2600 Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk

Yep, Band 41 pretty much covers all of downtown with good backhaul too. I got about 60 down last week. Also got 1x800 in Westley Chapel today in areas where I usually roam.

I'm ecstatic to have finally found 1x800. My phone only connected once when it disconnected from the DAS for some reason, but it was awesome nonetheless.

Is it normal to lose LTE when a site transitions from a 3G/LTE status to adding 800?  The only reason I mention this is the site closest to me that has had LTE now for sometime stopped LTE last Thursday.

It certainly isn't normal. But I wouldn't rule it out as possible. ;)

You still have the S3? I know that I am loosing LTE on towers lately that are in close proximity to old Clear towers that are being activated without csfb. It is becoming more of a problem across the area as they activate Band 41. But of coarse if you still have the S3 it wouldnt be the case, only if you have a triband phone and connected to a site without csfb.

Yes, still have the S3 and its working well.  Anyway, today the LTE on the site started broadcasting again.  I haven't had a chance to take a bicycle ride by the site to see whats going on, but its a very accessible tower, and I kind of expected it to get 800 soon.  Interesting that in my area of Riverview, there is another tower not far from me in the middle of all of the upgrades that have occurred that has not had any work done on it yet so far.... just a dot on the map and as I ride by it occasionally it doesn't appear Sprint, or any of the other carriers, have done any work on it recently.

Well my assumption was correct.  The tower closest to me in Riverview, FL (Panther Trace), had LTE down for a little less than a week.  As I mentioned, it came back up and tonight I noticed 1 X 800 on my phone (S3) tonight so I assume what they were doing was the 800Mhz upgrade.

Anyone on a triband phone experiencing csfb issues today? Everytime I connect to a band 41 tower today it knocks my phone to 3G. I had to disable band 41 and Band 26 in order to connect to LTE.

Holy crap. My suspicion was right. I disabled Band 26 and no problems, enabled Band 26 but disabled Band 41 same problems, 3G csfb issue BUT this happened for 30 seconds. I was wondering why I got such a good signal for a couple seconds on and off this morning. LTE 800 band 26 is knocking me off this tower like it did another tower a month ago.

Anyone out there lol? I put my phone into LTE only mode and got lots of Band 26 from Citrus Park Mall to Busch Gardens along Gunn/Busch Blvd. Awesome speeds too. But as soon as I enabled LTE +Cdma so I could receive calls, the csfb issue occurred and I dropped to 3G. If I disable band 26 I have no problems. Here are some screen shots.

That's awesome.  I'll have to put my Nexus in LTE only mode and do a little searching around Florida.
