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

Cool.. I might have to cross the street. ;)

 

What side of the building are you on? Guess you can figure where i am at by the pics I posted.

 

Insane..across the street and we still haven't chit chatted. I am sure we have seen each other, as I go walking for exercise everyday.

Digi I just flashed your 33010 PRL to see if I could get 800 smr off of the Behrman tower. This is what I got. The sreenshots are from the 1x Engineering Protocol screen and lordsutch's Signal Detector app.

Doesn't seem like you got SMR; you almost certainly would have landed on a 224xx SID if you had. Not sure where in the GS3 service menus the 1X band shows up (if at all)...

Thanks, I was hoping for a 22XXX SID, but I got kind of confused when I saw 4159. I didn't know if I was looking at the right thing because I expected that even if I didn't see 22XXX that I would at least see something that was 5 digits and not a 4 digit number.

Yes, that is one give away the SID. On the 1X RF screen you probably would have noticed a 25 or 50 or some other PCS channel for voice. 476 or 526 will be SMR.

 

Yep channel 50

What site?

Digi, I know how to pull up the debug menu on my phone but I don't know how to tell which site I'm pulling from. I ran the speed test at my house in Edgard so I'm either connecting to the tower on hwy 640 here in Edgard, the tower on 3127 in Killona, or the one on W. 10th street in Reserve.

Speaking of the debug menu, when I open the LTE engineering screen it lists a serving cell a, a DL and UL band, and some other info. It also says my connection is idle and I have no IP addy. Could I be picking up signal from a tower that isn't allowing connections?

I was on the corner of Perkins and Essen and when I looked at my phone I had a very weak lte signal..... Then it switched back to full bars 3G any ideas on what site that lte might have been?

Dbrow, what kind of phone was that on? I go through that intersection 4 times a day and have never picked anything up.there is a tower real close but I doubt it is it.

I'm on an iPhone 5, I was stopped at the light and saw 1 bar of signal with LTE instead of 3g. I drove by the Picardy tower and that wasn't it. I'm going to look at the map and when I leave work I'm going to see if I can stop by some of the other towers near by

Did u check what cell site it was?

I strongly suspect that it is the Sherwood/Florida Blvd site. It seems they have just adjusted the two current towers to maximize coverage at the expense of usefulness and that certain phones will latch on to a much weaker signal. If it isn't either of the two known 4g sites, the only other possibility would be on the building at United Plaza.

Did another tower go active? There is a lot of purple on sensorly at siegen and i10

 

That would be great. If someone can swing by there and get the serving cell number we could know for sure.

If someone can snag it, I bet it will be 81 or 91. Only other site it could be is the Burbank & Highland site but I'm sure Basil would have posted by now and there would be a big track on Sensorly. Everything else in the area that it could be hasn't been worked on yet.

My bad... I meant 419 or 429. Those are sectors of the 2 LTE sites facing that direction. Look in the NOLA spreadsheet, I list the serving cells of the two sites. 419 is the Flannery/Old Hammond site.

I really wish I could say there was another tower active, but...that strip of purple really hasn't changed over the last week or so and I've been by it a number of times with no 4G to be found on my EVO LTE. There just seem to be a number of over-achieving phones out there picking up the two sites that we know to be active. This town is being covered with stray purple dots and stripes of 4G that isn't usable. My theory is that they have sites set to have the greatest coverage right now at the expense of usability until more sites come on line. It gives the appearance of greater activity.

Is that a new site on w Esplanade and Division St?

 

I figured it has been so dead around here for a few, I figured I would see who would notice Sensorly or the worksheet first... he he he :) I am surprised it took this long!

    • 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.
