Network Vision/LTE - Tucson/Yuma Market


Recommended Posts

Well I have been getting this signal quality for the past 2 months. So something tells me it's just propagation issues.

I have noticed that after the towers around here were accepted to 3G, there has been far more areas with low signal levels.

Thats strange..

So, Most of Sprint's tech support and store reps have been very positive about explaninig that LTE will be lit up in the next three months.  This means that prior to the 3 months, we sould start seeing towers broadcasting LTE until they reach the point of 40% to anounce the market?  If I'm not mistaken, this has been the pattern for most of the makets that have been announced so far??

40% of the towers can be accepted with the new NV / LTE equipment however until they install the fiber backhaul, it is kind of moot.

A site isn't LTE accepted without the appropriate backhaul.

3g accepted sites can still be on legacy backhaul. 

 

They can also be 3G accepted and still broadcasting on legacy equipment as well for a variety of reasons. In some cases, even less equipment than was there previously if a legacy panel needed to be removed to make room for the new NV panel. This would account for degraded service after the "upgrade".

I've been tracking the signals around the entire city of Tucson every day for the past month. Today, 8/11/13, there must be some serious back haul work, or some kind of work goin on because my Erpdh signal switched back and forth to EVDO, and sometimes it goes out completely just left with 1xRTT running at -88 dBm, Ec/lo: -2.0 db.

The strangest part of the whole thing is that my AirRaid 2.5 has went on the blink showing all flashing red lcd's except solid green on the bottom one. It will then go all solid green for 1 minute, only to return to blinking red again. Coincidence? Who knows.

I suspect because this is ONLY happening late in the evenings for 4 consecutive days.

 

Any thoughts?

I'm going to keep this thread informed the best I can on a daily basis to help us Tucsonians up to speed on Sprint's 4G/LTE rollout process. As we have kept the faith and believe that sticking with Sprint through thick and thin will have a big payoff in the end. All the band wagon jumpers will regret ever leaving. We will have one of the best products out in the market.

 

Keep the Faith and stay informed fellow Sprinters!

I am getting real impatient! Last year I passed on the iPhone 5 and stayed with my 4S because there is no LTE. Apple will announce a new iPhone next month and I am getting it on an LTE network, hopefully Sprint will have at least one LTE tower in Tucson by then to keep me, otherwise it is Verizon baby!

Well, we got the first Phoenix towers today, so hopefully Tuscon/Yuma follow suit here shortly.

Odd activity today. Was at the MCAS in Yuma, was only connecting on Evdo and speeds were horrendous, actually network signal completely dropped out at times. Normally pull Eprhd in that area...what gives

Very strange activity today in Tucson as well. Erpdh dropping off to EVDO.....and slow EVDO, and I mean slow ...to no signal at all. There MUST be some stirring of the 4G pot here in Tucson.

Ok, I was just been told by Sprint that the tower next to my house between Broadway and 22 nd east of Houghton is an LTE tower but I cannot test it because I don't have an LTE phone yet, can anyone confirm?
