Think you found a new LTE site in your area? Please help us by getting some information from the site. If you find a new LTE site in the market or what you may think is a new site, drive close to wha

And of course I saved the best of last, the Addis, LA site (interesting site). Only 2 sectors on this one by design since there's really nothing on the backside of this one except for marsh/fields, e

The legacy site that just won't stop. Downtown Baton Rouge legacy rebuild.  New single band antennas, new coax, and legacy cabinets moved from the roof to the sidewalk during the building construction

Just checked out the no east site. It's good, I mapped it good with sensorly. Can't get cell ids etc as I'm on cm10.1 and can't get to those screens. Sorry.

One of the cell ids on berhman hwy is 190

I'll scope it out after work.

 

Yes, a member in the sponsor section posted pics a week ago of it with the panels on the ground by the crane. Amazing that it turned on so quickly. He mapped a bunch of it and sent the serving cell IDs which are 21, 190, 359. In case anyone forgot, they are 169 apart on the same site.

You need a nandroid backup of a simple clean stock setup, just backup the current and hit restore.

Do we have to use a custom prl to get the 800? How do we know if it is broadcasting 800?

 

Yes, there are ones posted in the sponsor section for testing. You will know by looking at the 1x engineering screens. You will be on a 224xx SID if connected.

I did a lot of mapping around the Behrman tower yesterday and today. The other serving cells are 21 and 359. I couldn't believe how fast it's come up. I posted pics about a week ago with the panels still on the ground at the tower. The 190 serving cell seems to cover a lot of area. I can get 20 megs down inside of my condo from this site and I'm at the back of Park Place.

Thanks for the confirmation! I had you on the sheet as credit for confirming LTE and the pics but wasn't sure of sharing that outside of the sponsor forum since you did mention it there. This really makes me lean towards that they are ramping up here as the crews get the process down pat in this area. Then it just becomes a backhaul/permitting waiting game.

 

Will have to keep an eye on the site that one of the Baton Rouge members found that I posted pics of the backhaul not hooked up. I did notice today downtown BR that there was an AT&T truck parked at the door that leads to the Sprint site that covers downtown. There really is no other reason to be there as the building is 100% empty and only Sprint is on the rooftop. The door to the building was propped open a bit. I circled around but didn't see anyone the second time I passed either. I'm really hoping he was there to hookup a new backhaul connection and not just working a ticket for a wonky T-1 line on this site. As we do have a problem with one of the EVDO channels on this site but I figure that would be on the Ericsson side of things and not AT&T. I would personally take the week off and help the contractors for free all week to get this site going!

Yea, I was thinking that they may be ramping deployment up also, at least that's what I'm hoping. It's amazing how a site like Gonzales can sit there accepted by Sprint for so long and another site can come up in a week. Your theory from another post about them just moving on to sites with the more reliable backhaul vendors is seeming more accurate. It seems Ericsson may be moving faster than some of them can keep up. On another note, has the Behrman site been reported to Robert as accepted yet? And, what are the chances that a site that comes up so fast is just up for testing and will go back down. It has been broadcasting for at least 30 hours straight that I know of.

It probably has if it is transmitting.

 

I would love to take a peek around the NV war room they talk about and see what's going on in our market.

i got lte from cell tower 263 most likely behind popeyes. the signal is very strong as i receive LTE on chef from Read Blvd all the way down to the drangizer bridge.. same cell tower

 

If this is a repost sorry i havent been on much and havent been reading..

Since you have an iphone be sure and post the LTE engineering screen. I'm looking for the cell identity and the serving cell since you can see both. I will mark this site as tentative , 94, 263, 432

Thanks for the warning digi... saved me a little gas lol

 

Now this is weird. I know I live WAY closer to Behrman Hwy, but when I'm home, My phone is still connecting to the tower by the Navy base <_<

    • Definitely agree. I'd honestly be satisfied if T-Mobile announced that they were deploying mmWave in targeted locations like airports and stadiums nationwide. Right now it still seems like they've stopped working altogether on expanding mmWave coverage with the exception of installing it at Raymond James Stadium and Tampa International Airport for the Super Bowl. Maybe they're holding out until new antennas and phones come out that support 24GHz and 47GHz spectrum since that's where the majority of their mmWave spectrum is here in NYC. Though there is nothing stopping them from deploying the 400MHz of n260 that they own here. I ran about 5 tests at this site but this was the only test with any packet loss. All with around 70ms pings. Even my mmWave speed tests in Brooklyn show 70ms pings. I've kinda been using it as a gauge for what 5G band I'm connected to. n41 is always in the teens, n71 is typically in the low to mid 20's, and n261 is around 70ms. It's honestly a mystery. Especially when we've seen Verizon mmWave with single-digit pings.
    • Dang, not too shabby! I'm sure this has been said before, but in some ways I kinda feel like T-Mobile has abandoned their mmWave network in NYC. I haven't seen any recent buildout, they're still stuck on 2x 50MHz n261 carriers, and performance (when you can connect) generally isn't much to speak of. On one hand, I don't really blame them when they have so much n41 deployment left to do. But it's also disappointing to hear them preach about the "layer cake" when their mmWave performance (at least in NYC) is a bit underwhelming. Here's hoping they'll get back on it when we start seeing these new 5G oDAS nodes roll out. I wonder what the reason is for the abnormally high pings you're seeing on n261. Didn't even notice that from my last post - it's a bit brutal to see a 77ms ping on n261 NSA and 13ms ping on n41 NSA, from the same site. Is this a recent development? Also, you probably shouldn't be experiencing ~5% packet loss when you're LOS... On another note, that's an interesting setup. Haven't seen one with a single APXVAR18_43-C-NA20, and I don't believe I've seen that 8-port Ericsson (?) midband antenna before.
    • Got my fastest mmWave speeds ever from a "layer cake" site in Chelsea. It recently got n41 but my phone didn't connect to it at all given I was super close to the site and within line of sight. Speeds on LTE alone were about 190Mbps.  I've been noticing consistent ~70ms pings on mmWave citywide.
    • is VoNR a thing yet?  when connected to n71, if a call happens, the device drops over to band 71 LTE to make the call and then switches back to 5G n71.  If I use samsung band selector and lock the device to n71 and do a call, the phone does not switch away from 5G and continues to reflect n71 but i dont have a way to know if that is just the phone not knowing what to show since it is band locked.
    • I have not seen CA on either with TNX.  CA on Sprint B41 is reduced to 2X around here as well.  Where the "magic" happens is n41 NSA. So far, I have not seen very fast speeds out of n41 SA.
