Network Vision/LTE - Orange County Market (Anaheim/Santa Ana/Irvine/Huntington Beach)

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, according to our interactive maps, there is still one tower by Disney that is not uppgraded to LTE. I'm not sure if this is correct but as of the last update it shows 3G :(

I haven't been to Disneyland in about a year but when I had an annual pass around 4 years ago. Services was unusable. But its getting better guy.

Its funny i just left Disneyland and the Sprint network in that area is horrible. During any event like world of color or fireworks it is completely unusable. Verizon was no better though. Couldn't even start a speed test on Verizon. My stay here in Orange county has made me appreciate how well Sprint performs in my home network of Portland. A few strategically placed mini macros would greatly improve the Sprint user experience at Disney.

Yes, visited Portland on February with my Moto X Pure and speeds were great. I even saw CA3 available.

Chances are pretty good it is running LTE now. We haven't had a report from a source for that market for some time. Hard to figure out which sites are active without market reports or several active members with a tracking map.

The DAS in the park is exclusive to AT&T and I believe it’s only WCDMA/HSPA.

This is old news, but I didn't see it posted.  Back in December the City of Huntington Beach reached an agreement with Mobilitie for small cell deployments on the city's light poles:

From the City Council minutes 12/18/17:

Approved and authorized execution of a Small Cell License Agreement between the City of Huntington Beach and Mobilitie LLC for installation of small cell attachments on City- owned streetlights.
Continued from November 20, 2017 meeting

A motion was made by Delgleize, second Brenden to approve the Small Cell License Agreement between the City of Huntington Beach and Mobilitie, LLC; and, authorize the City Manager and City Clerk to execute the Small Cell License Agreement.

I think VoLTE is now live? I see it on my phone in Irvine.

It's been live for a while in certain cities in Orange County such as Brea and Yorba Linda.

I live in Orange and it went live just yesterday~!  So happy~!

According to reddit users,  VoLTE is now live in OC and Inland Empire.

Just wanted to say, for the first time in a dozen years I went to Disneyland Parks and leading up to that trip, I read the threads and forums on Sprint data service expecting the worst. However I was pleasantly surprised and had very useable data speeds there outdoors. Only time coverage was lacking in indoor areas where there were thick walls, but I was expecting that. Uploads to social media, Facebook messenger, & and even streaming the MLB At Bat had no hiccups. This was on my iPhone 7+. Now what I thought was a crowded day actually wasn't according to my friends so that may have something to do with it.

Yes, it's quite usable now over most of the parks. Really quite amazing considering what the situation is and how many people are trying to use the service in that area.

    • Wrong perks program. This is akin to the Sprint Works program, where Sprint and your company have a bit of a deal that gets you a discount on your line. For example, I have a $5 discount for the time being thanks to the Sprint Works deal with my employer. 
    • The *vast* majority of markets had at least 60Mhz deployed, more if you count small cells and magic boxes. There were only a few areas where they were limited to 40Mhz due to spectrum issues.
    • I was in Greenville, NC last week and finally go to experience T-Mobile's network somewhere that wasn't New York for an extended period of time. Just like NYC, T-Mobile's 600MHz spectrum is extremely underdeployed. There are about 15 T-Mobile sites in the entire city and T-Mobile has deployed 600MHz on only 1 of them. Sprint on the other hand has tri-banded nearly every site. Another issue is that Greenville has pretty bad site density on all networks but the issue is exacerbated on T-Mobile by the fact that they lack Band 12 licenses for pretty much all of Eastern NC. The only lowband license they have is 600MHz and they haven't really put it to use at all. The good news is that speeds weren't that bad at all. Speeds were around 20Mbps on average with peaks of about 65Mbps. Deploying 600MHz likely isn't a priority for T-Mobile in Greenville and the towns surrounding it because on their end the network performance looks fine however, deploying 600MHz would fill in a lot of coverage gaps and give a much more reliable signal overall. Until then, Verizon and AT&T will have T-Mobile beat on coverage thanks to them having lowband on every site and U.S. Cellular will have them beat because U.S. Cellular has a bunch of extra sites that no other carrier uses in the region that provide them with much better coverage than any other carrier in the area.
    • Think T-Mobile will bid on this 5G spectrum?: https://www.defense.gov/Newsroom/Releases/Release/Article/2307275/white-house-and-dod-announce-additional-mid-band-spectrum-available-for-5g-by-t/ “The White House and Department of Defense announced today that 100 megahertz (MHz) of contiguous mid-band spectrum, in the 3450-3550 MHz band, will be available for 5G by the end of the summer.“ More info: https://breakingdefense.com/2020/08/pentagon-gives-up-huge-slice-of-spectrum-for-5g/ “The White House formally made the request in April. Roughly 200 technical experts from all four armed services, the Office of Secretary of Defense, and the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy studied the problem for 15 weeks. The FCC, which has already endorsed the plan, will start auctioning the spectrum off in December 2021, Kratsios said, with commercial use beginning “as soon as mid-2022.”” I’m sure AT&T/Verizon will fight hard for it.
    • My bet is that TMo is having to pay $0 for those deals. They're intro-level promos to drive traffic to those partners, broadcast across TMo's entire customer base. Wouldn't be surprised if the money goes in the opposite direction, easily paying for whoever actually runs the program.
