Network Vision/LTE - Tampa Market

Recommended Posts

I am now wondering, with all the work being done in the Miami market, are resources being focused there for deployment before moving to other Florida markets?

I doubt it. When I worked for Goff we didn't go to Miami so someone was there doing work. Another thing to add is a tower company can also sub out their work to other contractors even from out of state. That may make some sense if there are bonuses to be considered.

 

The Miami deployment looks strange to me at least on Sensorly. If you look at most of the other deployment areas there is a clear path where they are going. Northern California is a good example as you can see them working to Sacramento. Miami seems to be spots here and there. Makes me think there might be 2 or 3 tower companies working..

Though it may not feel like it, work is occurring in all Florida peninsula markets. I just talked to an Ericsson engineer yesterday. Expect the first Orlando sites to start appearing very soon...Jacksonville, Tampa and SW Florida very shortly afterward.

I think I would take a walk off the Skyway if it wasn't for this site

I know we've all been actively seeking out the first LTE sites in Tampa/St. Pete, but wondering about Orlando. Are there as many folks actively watching for a site to pop up and put it on Sensorly? I only say this as Robert mentioned that he talked to an Ericsson engineer and that we could expect the first Orlando sites to start appearing very soon...Jacksonville, Tampa and SW Florida very shortly afterward. Seeing that would provide some optimism...

You are right sir. I'm not sure if anyone has checked in from the Orlando market at all. I already follow Jacksonville, Miami, and of course our thread.

Orlando is not a very active market for S4GRU members. I can only think of two off the top of my head. We even have more members in the Panhandle market than Orlando.

Makes sense.. Florida in general is a transient state. It seems like no one here is actually from here. Orlando would probably be even more so with the reasons people actually go there.. Time to dig in the Orange County permit site and see what I can find..

Thinking about taking a motorcycle ride out that way and see what I can find. Good excuse to ride, not like I need one though.

Hey guys, I'm an Orlando market guy... I just don't post much I just watch the experts on all things Sprint LTE. ha. I live in Deland which is about 45 minutes north of Orlando and 30 minutes west of Daytona. I don't get out to Orlando to often, but I'm in Daytona almost every day. I have been checking for eHRPD and have not found any yet. If I ever find anything I'll be sure to post about it here and of course run sensorly, but I KNOW people will beat me to it! ha.

Well I am hoping that Orlando, by showing some activity, will provide us folks in the Tampa/St. Peter area for some Hope and Change. (Please, no political comments on that pun).

I am from Florida... I am a rare breed :) though I did take a 16 year detour in VA.

Just sucks in general now. Tampa used to be a very good market for Sprint data.

OK so I have tested all over Tampa on my way home today. By my office near the Fairgrounds. Ybor, Downtown, Westshore, and the Vets/Suncoast all the way up to NPR, even tested in a few spots in NPR. All I can say is pitiful results, it has actually gotten way worse in the last few months. My OG EVO would at least get around 600K in most places except my office. most my tests today were below 200 down, and below 100 up. The best tower I can connect to is my AirRave it gives me 2.5Mb/sec 3G so it wasn't my phone.

Everyone is testing, thus slowing the network.

    • This is in fort bend county, they have the entire 196MHz there.
    • I know the guy who'll be doing drive testing for their Fastest Networks report in Austin, hence asking. What's funny is, when they do those tests, TMo will be at its nadir, while Sprint will be very much alive still in tons of places.
    • Honestly the past 2 - 3 weeks I have seen a big improvement in download speeds even during heavy foot traffic on the Sprint Tower at Fashion Square Mall in Ch’ville. This is the one I’m always connected to at my apartment up the street. Upload speeds still averaging 2.4-5.xx but download speeds use to be around 25 down during heavy foot traffic times and 30-40 download speeds when the load wasn’t so heavy. Where my apartment is I’m always connected to Band 41. I am impressed that the download speeds have made a big improvement lately. 
    • I don't have a Sprint phone to check, but does this mean Sprint Small Cells are no longer operational? IIRC, 160 Mhz was all the EBS/BRS spectrum Sprint owned in Houston. (I remember reading they owned or had leases for the entire EBS/BRS Band, but I don't feel like searching the FCC site to verify this.) Not turning off the small cells using LTE UE Relay for backhaul (which is all of them AFAIK) could create issues if all Sprint owned in Houston was 160 Mhz.
    • T-Mobile offers roaming on their WCDMA/HSPA network for CDMA-less Verizon devices; the agreement is reciprocal. I believe LTE roaming on Verizon is restricted to only certain areas.
