Everything 800mhz (1xA, LTE, coverage, timeline, etc)

Recommended Posts

Hopefully there is not also Public Safety Agencies in Canada that need clearing.

 

If Canada has not finished 800 MHz rebanding, then Public Safety still will be in the way at the top of the band where the band 26 LTE carrier is located.  The band class 10 CDMA1X carrier has been deployed in some IBEZ areas because it is located below 821 MHz x 866 MHz and is in a contiguous 3 MHz FDD block that has been used for commercial operations, not Public Safety.  So, once Telus Mike goes dark, band class 10 CDMA1X at the very least should be possible.

I think it may be somewhat market dependant as far as 800 installation in IBEZ areas are concerned. Most of the sites in the Cleveland market already have at least the dualband antenna installed, and 1x800 lit up rather quickly in the secondary IBEZ once Sprint decided to activate it about 3 or 4 months ago.

 

I know we have confirmed that the East Michigan and Washington had PCS only antennas deployed. I don't know about the other IBEZ Samsung markets. I'm not sure, but I don't think the other vendors deployed a PCS only antenna. Just did not install an 800 RRU initially.

Yea we don't have 800mjz equipment up at all here so the deployment probably won't be as quick.

Where is here? (I don't know where the food is)

Oh the food is in Seattle WA.

Jesus. Sounds like it's going to be awhile before this is settled. I hate Arizona. I use to live there for 6 years lol. My kids still live there now.

Well at least now they've got the FCC breathing down their necks. Probably better for all involved parties to ensure more transparency.

This should be faster now especially since Telus as killed of Mike (iDen Network in Canada) last January.

Telus MiKE has no effect on the situation in Arizona, only the situation in western Washington.

      IBEZ will be solved SOONER, rather than later.
       
      Which is a good thing. I would have liked for SoftBank to join the fight, because EVERYONE knows that their roaming rates are going to be abysmal with Sprint customers traveling to Mexico.
       
      Is this a raw deal? Your thoughts?

      The closest Sprint tower to my house is about 3.5 miles away. In between are hills, trees, a handful of houses, and fields. However, I do have line of sight. I can see the blinking light of the tower in the distance at night. I do not think Sprint has deployed any LTE at this tower. When they do, is it possible that the LTE signal would reach my house?
       
      Right now I have a Moto X, but I may go back to the Q10. I do pick up eHRPD at my house. What frequency is that on? I'm thinking Sprint's 800ish mhz LTE band might. Not sure about 1900 though..
       
      Thanks

      With the extremely fast ramp-up of band 26 deployment in the recent months, a lot of the US is now covered by it. Some markets have been optimized, some haven't. 
       
      For those markets that have seen band 26 optimization, what's your story? Did you used to get a weak 3G connection indoors, and now enjoy a usable 1-2 bar LTE connection? 
       
      Is your 800Mhz LTE connection stronger, the same, or slightly weaker than 3G now? 
       
      Let's try to keep this focused only on stories about areas that have seen a definite coverage improvement as a result of a fully optimized band 26 LTE deployment, not a thread that focuses on where optimization hasn't taken place yet. Perhaps we can boost morale and give us non-optimized folks something to look forward to. :-)

      I'm James from OpenSignal. We're trying to map international rollout of LTE, but very few phones can report the band and bandwidth used, so we're hoping people can help us by firing up field test mode and submitting the data to our map - all the data can be downloaded.
       
      We've already got a great map of South Korea and China, there's a lot of 10 MHz and 20 MHz bands there, which explains why they're clocking some of the fastest LTE speeds on the planet.
       
      You actually need to use "service mode" on Android to do this: 
      Type
      *#0011#
      Into a dialer. 
       
      You should see
       
       

       
       
      Here you can read the LTE stats easily. The Band is 7 (around 2600 MHz), and the LTE Bandwidth for download (LTE DL BW) is 15 MHz. Actually the Earfcn_dl gives a more precise reading of the band, 2825, so if this available use this.
       
       
      You can fill in the form here: Google docs form
      Your data will appear on a map here: LTE bandwidth map.
       
      This won't work for all Android phones, I'm yet to find any other codes that can bring up this info (field test modes & service modes are implemented differently on different devices.  
       
      On iOS try:
      *3001#12345#*[/size]
       
       
      Btw if any admin has the permissions, you can embed the form and map right here:
      Form:
      If that works fill out this form and your information will be automatically mapped:
      Loading…
      All the information is public, and responses are mapped immediately below – you will probably need to refresh this page before your data becomes visible. If it doesn’t appear after that there may be a problem geocoding please email me James (@ opensignal.com) with your observation and we’ll get it up.
