Is the GPS off on that mark? Thought you were 2 blocks over?

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

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?

 

Yes. On the sheet, kevins669 confirmed and updated the serving cell IDs.

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!

    • as of today band 25 being reduced on Sprint side, EARFCN 8321 is 5 MHz vs 8290 10 MHz here in LES. But when I forced roam to T-mobile it still 10 MHz band 2 EARFCN 750.
    • I sent mine back a few weeks ago. My power went out for 2 seconds and it went back to search mode. If the pebble gets disconnected from power for any amount of time, it needs to be completely re-configured. Decided it wasn't worth the hassle. I have wifi calling so I get phone calls and if I don't get texts,....depending on who it is from that's actually a bonus.
    • Just did some quick adding and 70% of the US population is in the largest 114 US MSAs. If Dish covered every MSA above 475k population (so, everything from Lafayette, LA on up), and service stopped completely outside MSA borders, they'd hit their 70%. That's while covering none of places as large as Reno, NV. Oh, and if you cover the San Juan, PR MSA, you can just hit the top 110 other MSAs, down to Pensacola, FL (so, everything with >= 500k population). Now, I fully expect Dish to omit some MSAs in the top 114 in favor of others that are closer to their footprint, or have more Boost Mobile user concentration, but this isn't a ridiculously huge lift...and is why Dish is saying they'll be building out only 15k cell sites by 2023...and they'll have help from T-Mobile as TMo casts off a bunch of redundant sites, many of which would love to immediately get a new tenant.
    • Thing is, building a coverage focused network to cover 70% of the US population using 600 isn't *that* expensive. It's the capacity play that's expensive. You need capacity if you have a ton of customers, which 10MM isn't. Alltel had 12 million customers when Verizon bought them, and covered a larger area than Dish will need to. If you spend $5 billion building a network for, say, 15 million customers, and don't have to subsidize those customers, that's not a huge outlay in the scheme of things.
