Oh, happy day. I need to come back down to New Mexico and enjoy this momentous occasion. Although 3G in Los Alamos always worked well for me, especially the North Mesa and DP Road sites, I would have loved to have seen LTE arrive before I left in September 2013. I'm so happy for you all! ¡Eeeeee, B26!

This would help White Rock so much at my parents house near the Overlook.

Overlook has always been tough. As is the back of Rover Blvd. With that hill across from the tower acting as a RF shadow and the depression over by Overlook, I wouldn't expect much improvement with a full build. Maybe extending into the shadow 100-200'.

 

A second White Rock site that reaches into that shadow would be ideal. Even a pico cell on public right of way in Overlook Park would be an innovative way to handle it,

My parents back up to overlook.  It is tough. They have an airave which helps (when it works). However, I have converted them to whatsapp which my brother uses as well.

When I talked to the network team last week, the guy told me that our market would be fully completed by December.

Well I will hope that it is closer to the schedule posted in the premier area then what I was told. If the 3G was better durning peek time it would not be so bad. Until then it happens when it happens.

I stay in White Rock with family a couple nights a week while I work up here. 3g is just not super strong as you get closer to overlook. I even have trouble with voice signals inside the place I stay. SMR and B26 will work wonders down there.

NV 3.0 or NV 4.0. I think we are a solid year away.

I like seeing those B26 Sensorly tracks.  Keep running through Los Alamos and Santa Fe, please.  :2tu:

 

Maybe a drive down Trinity in LA and down St. Francis (and possibly Peralta) in SF soon?  :fingers:

It felt good laying some purple down today along truck route. I will go home (white rock) down front hill road so i can lay some more down. I might also be conviced to go St Francis going back through Santa Fe tomorrow after work ;)

Ah! I can get a picture of one of the crews working tomorrow if you like me to? Just didn't feel like snapping them today.

I also just had the realization that even though Sprint is really late to deploying LTE in Los Alamos and Santa Fe, they still beat AT&T.  Amazingly, AT&T only has LTE in Tierra Amarilla and Lake Abiquiu in Northern New Mexico.  Their omission in the City Different is quite startling, seeing how Verizon fired up LTE in Santa Fe in Mid 2012 and Tmo did in Mid 2014.  AT&T is way behind.

TMO is also very limited in Santa Fe and drop to 2G between ABQ and Santa Fe.  IF Sprint can bang out the whole drive between LA to ABQ (which lets face it is most of the traffic during the week), would be great.

yep. Only place I didn't get it was around the hospital. I think it was a combination of being in between sectors and the hospital area being in a depression relative to the tower.

At TA-3 I pickup 1X800 briefly but switch to Verizon roaming (signal isnt great either) as does my coworker. She just keeps her phone off. I'm going to blame my building. Nobody really gets good reception. Even Verizon LTE has issues there.

 

On a side note about AT&T, forcing my T-Mo Note 4 into LTE only mode on B17, I've picked up AT&T LTE in Taos and in Santa Fe. It wouldn't connect obviously since there is not an agreement between T-Mo and AT&T. AT&T roams on Commnet at TA-3.

Where at TA-3? I picked up B26 up there yesterday, though it was outside driving in my car.

Sorry for the crap picture, they weren't there when I came back at noon.

I did find some permits for fiber install last night, but the city site isn't showing them right now. :(
