Well, pretty much requires getting out and doing some mapping or checking the cell IDs to pinpoint the tower.

 

I've got an iphone and its cant give sensorly the data it needs. Although it isjailbroken- is there an app that allows sensorly to map?

You can still check cell ids and such, there's a lot of good information on tracking down sites in the DFW/Austin and the New Orleans Sponsors threads

Big swath of coverage mapped in Buena Park on Beach Blvd.!

 

Still on the edge of the OC/LA markets. Not confident enough at this time to say that the OC market is now going LTE live. If coverage increases and we can make a better guess as to which tower the LTE is coming from, then we can celebrate!

So you think Buena Park is its own OC tower?

 

That particular stretch is likely from a tower in the LA market. Until we can see otherwise, assume all LTE reports are from the LA market. In the Sponsors section, I could point out which tower I expect it is from, however that information cannot be posted here.

What part of la? Buena park is deeper in oc than la habra and cerritos is kind of far west to hit Buena park

 

Well, regardless of where the actual OC boundary is, the Sprint LA Market comes up right against the 39 or Beach Blvd, whatever you call it, so a tower on that line could be broadcasting LTE into the OC market.

I'm from la mirada. I had lte in between imperial and rosecrans from la mirada to valley view. It was all pretty spotty. And as I drove down valley view towards buena park I had lte up until la Palma so roughly from imperial in la mirada to la Palma had some lte. La mirada is borderline oc la county so hopefully it keeps progressing

Just to make sure I understood your directions lol. From imperial going south to la Palma on valley view was spotty?

I think if people start to simply map their commutes in OC it will start to flesh out the coverage. It's just one stripe on beach blvd going to below the 91 fwy. That is definitely Orange County.

 

If it was LA, why would it not show up until recently? It seems like LA coverage hasn't expanded at all for a while... Then this pops up...

    • Ah, I see.  Thanks for those details! It is great to see some posts on this subject.
    • I was reading the FCC filing for the Pixel 6 yesterday and saw that it included n258 - I was wondering what that was. That will be my next phone so nice to know it will support this new spectrum. 
    • The decommissioning of Sprint sites has started, the optimistic worrying starts about which sites they will keep and convert. Only 2 out of the 3 B41 sectors are on Cellmapper, and 0 B25/26 sectors. I think another site near me also got turned off/decom'd, but I haven't checked it yet. I guess its time to start paying more attention to Sprint sites... Link to street view of the site via Google Maps ,  Link to the site in Cellmapper .

    • Haven't gone anywhere yet, so I can't speak to benefits.  My issue was that I was out on Monday morning and it appears that T-Mobile has turned off several Sprint towers near me.  I was sitting in a parking lot near Landmark Mall on -118 dBm Band 25 because two of the sites I used to connect to there were apparently not running, so data would barely move.  This is in addition to my home site which has been off for several weeks, but that wasn't an issue because I don't use wireless data at home.  But if they're starting to turn off Sprint sites and leave holes, then there's really no alternative. So far, I've only seen T-Mobile, but that makes sense since I've only been home and my home site is gone on Sprint, so the site I had been connecting to was a lot weaker.  I'll have to see when I'm out and about, possibly this weekend. When ROAMAHOME came out, I had that removed and blocked from my account since T-Mobile's network is so lousy, so my lines were not automatically pushed to MULTOCN.  I had to have the block removed and then MULTOCN manually added.  That's probably not typical. - Trip
    • Are you seeing a benefit from MOCN?  Is it true that MOCN is highly biased to using T-Mobile towers?  Should everyone with a non-5G phone ask for MOCN? I had the impression it was supposed to be automatic now, perhaps even without being entered explicitly.  Is this not the case?  I realize that it may take some time to draw conclusions so if you do not know yet that is fine. Thanks!
