Recommended Posts

I don't know work has started, I believe not but lately usually like Tuesday.Wednesday and Thursday mornings it seems that data goes out or the network completely...at first I thought it was me but my girlfriend old photon (best buy replaces it due to nasty bugs she had insurance) and my evo lte lost all conectivity. Then about two days ago it happen again this time she had her new shiny GS3 hers went into roaming and mine went into no network mode. I have my evo set to home only in the networks setting, which baffled me...IM just wondering, I called sprint and they told me that maintenance is occurring but they usually.never have the correct info. And then again today I lost all 3g and 1x data were completely out again... it just strange at time

That has happened to me once in a while. I think one day my data was down for like 6 hours, but it only happened once that I remember.

This is all good news. Been paying for Premium data since the Epic 4G was released and got to use WiMax all of 1% of the time I owned the phone. Now I'm 6 months into my LTE phones contract and still 0% use on LTE.

I travel up to Lake Elsinore quite a bit, where my brother lives he gets very speedy 3G near Flowerhill Dr. & Lost Rd. in 92532. However at Storm Stadium (formerly known as The Diamond) in Lake Elsinore, I've been getting rather subpar 3G service where it's so slow, it's impossible use any data (speeds of 100kbps or less). Honestly I 4G LTE would be fantastic, but I would be very ecstatic if I could just get some usable 3G. Are there any improvements coming to those areas I just mentioned?

I hope so, I'm just up the hill from Storm Stadium. Verizon's LTE is pretty good all throughout the area so I'm really hoping Sprint comes through.

Is there any way to request, probably on deaf ears, more coverage for a city? Hemet/San Jacinto has probably close to 200,000 people living in the area now.. and as far as I can tell it is home to about 4 Sprint towers? No wonder those things get so bogged down! There are plenty of open fields, plenty of light towers at High School Football stadiums (which house 'other' network antennas)... I wonder if Sprint is even aware of how thin they are vs. how many people are spread out here....

Looks like San Diego is now getting a few hits of LTE along with Los Angeles, hopefully we start seeing some soon.

 

Anyone else in the area using sensorly?

 

I drive basically from Murrieta to Ontario everyday up the 15fwy but haven't had any luck seeing any LTE.

As someone who lives in San Diego County, I'm not seeing any Sprint 4G LTE on Sensorly. However Ehrpd seems to come and go, but that doesn't necessarily mean LTE is coming in the very near future.

The Riverside/San Bernardino market is large and spread out, it will take them time to deploy along I-15. Around once a month, I go thru the I-15 corridor from Barstow to Baker, and sometimes between Barstow & the 210 freeway, and the bad service is enough to drive me crazy. Plus the fact that Alcatel/Lucent is building all 5 Southern California markets at the same time.

I thought I had read in the San Diego thread people were seeing some test spots of LTE but I must have misunderstood.

The problem with Riverside / San Bernardino for sure is the size of the market is huge compared to LA or SD. I wish there was more info about our county's. I had posted these photos in another thread and was hoping it was a good sign.

LA and SD have cell splitting, and likely more cell sites to upgrade. Cell size largely depends on the population density, not the propagation of the signal.

Midway through December, very quite in this section of Southern California.

 

I thought we would at least be seeing a little bit of news by now. Probably shouldn't have renewed with the Galaxy Nexus but I had hoped LTE would have been running in my area by now. I don't want to pay to cancel but...

You know you're borderline violating S4gru rules with your pessimism right?

 

Negative comments. Negative comments about Sprint and/or S4GRU are allowed. However, negative comments must be constructive in nature, relevant to the topic and the conversation, illustrate facts, be made rationally and intelligently and cannot have an attack tone. Rants will not be allowed. We do not host Sprint's complaints. Complaints about Sprint should be directed to their customer service channels.

http://s4gru.com/ind...-aka-the-rulez/

 

Anyways. As a sponsor,all I will tell you is there are NV upgrades in that market but nothing major yet compared to LA or SF markets. Work is highly likely to be on going but comparatively "slow" compared to your northern neighbors. Recent s4gru NV map updates have indicated that the OEMs are speeding up deployment in a lot of markets so it shant be long before you start seeing increased activity.

 

Though, you may see more updates up north as Alcatel-Lucent (Socal OEM) doesn't seem to be deploying as fast as Sammy is up north in the SF Bay area.

All markets in SoCal are actively being deployed except Lower Central Valley. Not bad, I'd say.

The upper Central Valley work has started? Nice!

 

It appears to me that Samsung is more conservative on how much they are doing at any given time, while AlcatelLucent is going "hog wild" and is now actively deploying in almost every market they will be doing work in.

Southern Cali -- Not NorCal. Upper Central Valley hasn't started yet.

It seems like people are suggesting that work on the IE will begin soon and will be lighting up in the next month or two. The service around my area (Rancho) is super bad. Sad, because I moved here from Denver where I got 2mb down on 3g all the time.

Work has already begun in the Riverside/San Bernardino market (which covers the Inland Empire). But it will still be a few months before LTE starts lighting up.

That is what I have heard. When it is done, It will be amazing. Just gotta hang in until then. I think that one thing all the haters don't realize is what Network Vision will do. We will have the best network in America, by a long shot. They will raise prices, and new subscribers will have to pay more. Older customers on older plans, will not. Pretty nice time to be with Sprint. Even though the service right now is pretty spotty.

I have the Galaxy S III and coverage in Moreno Valley is excellent close to 3mbps on 3g. Can't wait to see what LTE has in store many of my friends have Verizon and they tell me their LTE is 51/50 at times so hopefully Sprint has theirs be more stable

New panels being installed at Landau and 30th. Ave. in Cathedral City, CA. The ones on the ends are old. New are being placed towards the inside.

    • It would not surprise me if T-Mobile leases UScellular's used spectrum while converting sites for up to a year.
    • Here's the spectrum breakdown by band. There's some 2.5 in there as well. The remaining spectrum is definitely enough to keep running FWA on while finding a buyer, and since the towers aren't conveying with the subs and spectrum there's nothing stopping USCellular from competing with T-Mobile on FWA until Verizon or AT&T decide the spectrum is valuable enough to take off TDS's hands. If they go that route, I wouldn't be surprised if FWA gets rebranded under TDS.
    • Transaction Details and Financial Profile T-Mobile will pay approximately $4.4 billion for the assets being acquired from UScellular in the transaction in a combination of cash and up to $2.0 billion of debt to be assumed by T-Mobile through an exchange offer to be made to certain UScellular debtholders prior to closing. To the extent any debtholders do not participate in the exchange, their bonds will continue as obligations of UScellular and the cash portion of the purchase price will be correspondingly increased. Following the closing of the transaction, UScellular will retain ownership of its other spectrum as well as its towers, with T-Mobile entering into a long-term arrangement to lease space on at least 2,100 additional towers being retained. T-Mobile does not expect the transaction to impact the company’s 2024 guidance or 2024 authorized shareholder return program. T-Mobile expects this transaction will yield approximately $1.0 billion in effective total opex and capex annual run rate cost synergies upon integration, with total cost to achieve the integration currently estimated at between $2.2 billion to $2.6 billion. The company plans to reinvest a portion of synergies toward enhancing consumer choice, quality and competition in the wireless industry. The transaction, which is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions and receipt of certain regulatory approvals, is expected to close in mid-2025.
    • The way I heard it, these were for sites that T-Mobile would not be keeping, and presumably is how they would handle decommissioning the equipment from them.  This would presumably happen because they're already on the tower or on an adjacent tower.  For example, in Keysville, VA, T-Mobile is on a tower directly adjacent to the existing US Cellular-owned tower. https://maps.app.goo.gl/kefNy451QXYFSqi5A T-Mobile at left; at right is the US Cellular-owned tower with both US Cellular and Verizon gear on it. - Trip
    • My gut opinion is they are waiting for technology improvements. C-band is seeing some of those emerge now which will extend its useful range and carrying capacity.  Given it current short range, 24GHz is best for places where people are seated in sizeable numbers, although I would not rule out business pico cells. Of course, Verizon is using mmWave small cells quite well for FWA by placing them outside large apartment buildings that only allow one ISP with outrageous charges. UScellular and some Verizon have been using it to do the job of microwave links to preserve licences (4 needed per county).
