Network Vision/LTE - North Wisconsin Market (Wausau/Green Bay/Appleton)

Recommended Posts

They all have been upgraded. Just waiting on backhaul. Hopefully they don't use CenturyLink in that area.

Yeah, that's what I meant. I know there is only one down in Menasha that technically needs to be "upgraded."

I don't know about you all, but I've actually noticed quite a decline in data speeds in Green Bay recently. I'm hoping this it's due to some tower upgrades.....maybe even Spark upgrades.

Has anyone started a North Wisconsin map/spreadsheet thread yet?  I can't seem to find one.

I wanted to take a look before leaving for Oshkosh.

 

The only useful data I can find is the sensorly overlay map in the premier section.

As I'm not a Premier sponsor, I can't say if there is a spreadsheet in there. But I don't think I have seen one for our area, no.

I started picking up band 41 by Appleton the other day. Not sure on the extent or official timeline, definitely not widespread yet.

If you go to the engineering screens it will show you the band you're on. I'm not sure the dialer code you need, I know they've posted it on the iPhone6 thread somewhere.

*3001#12345#* then hit dial. Then Serving Cell Info then look at the band indicator.

I had to reread this. I thought you were asking how you would know if you were ON an iPhone. I was going to suggest you flip it over and see if someone took a bite of your Apple. :)

Wanted to let everyone know, as of 10/28, the coverage map on Sprint.com shows Spark coverage for the Sheboygan area!

 

Going as far north from Howards Gorve, south to almost Gibbsville and as far west to Plymouth.

I think sheboygan was one of the first places in Wisconsin to get band 25 and 26 LTE.

Well then... As I sit here getting my haircut I'm getting my first taste of B41 in Appleton! Actually first time ever I've been on Band 41...

 

Not bad either... 52 ms, -106, 26 down, 5 up... I'm happy with that!

I was right next to the strip mall by Kohls on KK (Calumet) or Appleton East side.

 

I would definitely consider upgrading to at least a sponsor or a premier sponsor, there is a TON going on in the North Wisconsin market over the next 180 days!

Nice! Money is a little tight right now but I'll follow this thread for some good stories!

B41 is popping up all over in Appleton now...  :D

 

The Kohls on Northland and the Fox River Mall in the food court are just a few. They have really made a lot of progress here this year. Once the rest of North Wisconsin gets all towers to at least one band of LTE, Sprint is going to ROCK! 

 

I've already impressed a few Verizon customers on B41 when all they could get was 3G...  ;)

but no B41 up in Wausau yet. I believe that only two towers got LTE this year so far. But once they do the optimization on the network here should really be good.

Band 25? Great to hear they're FINALLY getting LTE up there.

 

So many 3G only sites in our market still.

I am not sure but I will come back to the thread when it is up and running. I will also record it in Sensorly. I was on my way back from family yesterday and noticed I was getting LTE in Tomahawk when driving back up on Hwy 51. Merrill has LTE as well.

Exciting news! I've received the thumbs up from Robert and with the help of uecker87 to get started, I'll be creating a premier North Wisconsin map/spreadsheet thread for all of us to keep tabs on our towers and join in the B41 tracking fun!  :D

 

I'm still in the early stages of creating everything. But for the time being - so you can play along at home - we can start to track and getting confirmation on bands, GCI's, TAC's, and as we go along we can tweak it. Especially since I'm still learning as I go to.

 

Happy hunting!
