Network Vision/LTE - Riverside/San Bernardino Market (Inland Empire)

Recommended Posts

I have been connected to the evdo a network since I got my phone. Then a few days ago my phone switched to eHRPD for a few hours and it switched back to evdo a and has been ever since. What does this mean?

 

The Galaxy Nexus has a very hard time maintaining a connection to eHRPD. I haven't figured out why, but the only thing I think it could be is the weak VIA radio for 1x/EVDO. Since the phone can't maintain eHRPD well, it just means that when you drop from LTE down to 3G data, it will have a delay before data starts back up.

I wouldn't mind that as long as I get lte :)

Been hanging around Big Bear Lake this weekend. No NV love up here. I've been bouncing between the unoffciail 4.2.1 AOSP ROM and 4.1.1 Touchwiz based Hyperdrive. Best speeds my phone has received are .3 down, .15 up.

 

Can't wait to get back to the LA basin.

Hoping for Robert to give me a great answer to this..

 

Since were at 9% now when do you think LTE will start lighting up?

I still think we're at least 45 days away.

Seems close enough for me, may be even sooner?.. all I know is I'm seeing network vision all over the place in riverside and lake elsinore.

It would be great if it's sooner. That's just my guess.

Seems like all the work is getting complete except the tower off of sedco heights in lake elsinore. A piece of new hardware seems to get added every week.

Robert can you confirm perris will have 4G? Do u know any cross streets for the towers in this area?

Sprint is upgrading the entire network, if you have a good 3G signal, then you will have a 4G signal by the time upgrades are complete. We have maps of all Sprint towers in the country in our sponsors section, as well as a map tracking the progress of tower upgrades.

 

If you aren't able to become a sponsor at this time, network.sprint.com does show the locations of some towers, but not all.

Yes, Perris will get Sprint LTE. Preliminary work is under way there now. We show maps of all the Sprint sites in Perris, and nationwide in our Sponsor section.

Because Redlands isn't one of the major cities does that mean it will get lte later than when the bigger cites in Riverside/ San Bernardino get lte?

 

The whole market will be deployed all over. They will start with the first sites that are ready, no matter where they are. Redlands will likely start going live with the other communities in the market. It will be more of a shotgun approach.

You should be running the Sensorly app so it get's reported because right now Sensorly is showing nothing for Riverside area.

 

Not a single purple dot on the map for the San Bernardino/Inland Empire area.

Ok, I misread your post. I thought you were saying your seeing the Network Vision on your phone, not on the towers themselves. My Bad. :)

Any 4G news and thank you Robert.

Alcatel Lucent starts deploying markets with 3G first and then starts bringing online LTE over the same sites a few months later. Your market should be starting up LTE soon, since San Diego is starting to go live now. I'm guessing in the next week or two.

    • 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).
