Network Vision/LTE - Tucson/Yuma Market


Recommended Posts

I really am trying to be optimistic about this. Looks like they are actively working on towers again. I set a date of end of Sept to start seeing LTE here if not I would move on.  This gives me hope that it will happen sooner than that. 

 

right now, signal out of that tower where they were working off of Ave B and 20th street is very low. Voice calls are digitized and cutting out. I passed by there again and there was no one around.

I am not very optimistic, I setup a deadline by the release of the next iPhone next month, if Sprint does not have some LTE in Tucson I am as good as gone.

It will come, i cant live without unlimited data and unlimited LTE is going to rock!

I agree, once lte hits unlimited data will rock. I can hold out till then. Of course I say that since I upgraded to an S4 back in April, so I'm locked in for another 2 years.

Do not expect honest answers from any cell carrier - it's a lost trait in this country! That said, additional delays have possibly been caused by a recent agreement to allow Cricket customers to utilize Sprint towers/Network - they appear desparate to recoup the 1,000,000+ they lost by being less then truthful about their progressions!

The Sprint site on S Wilmot by the DMAFB gate has been 3G accepted and the current status is "Pending" - not exactly certain what that means but other eastside sites are "three months away" according to Sprint.

It's been done for a while. They pulled the legacy gear down about a month ago.

 

Still love how AT&T was too lazy to replace all 3 antennas per sector.

These guys are at it again at 20th and Ave BCentury Link back after Fiber line was dropped last Wed. Sent from my EVO using Tapatalk 4

Well that explains why the speeds coming off that tower have dipped

Yeah have a strong signal when at the light right there but just slow data. When EHRPD first showed up on that tower I was getting over 1 mbps during peak hours

Hey Sprint! I sell real estate and property on the moon will be available by the first of September 2013 or was it by the end of the month or was it in the next several months - I never was able to read memos right - oh well, better place your order now before all the 4G, OOPS, I mean property, iis gone - just be patient - soon you will be able to provide unlimited "mooning" for life!

This has nothing to do with anything. Sprint already has dozens of sites in the Tucson market with LTE equipment on it. They are awaiting backhaul. Cricket doesn't mean anything. And Cricket is in the process of being bought out by AT&T.

Why is it taking so long to upgrade the backhaul?

so, happy Labor day btw, obviously hooray that Phoenix has LTE popping up :) does anyone know if any Tucson towers are LTE ready? I know we have no LTE so far as per the Sensorly map... just curious, hopefully we are not that far behind them...

    • I agree. I think AT&T site SB25 at Oksams corner would be a much better fit. 
    • Anyone in central PA region/Shentel land on this phone that can speak to recent behavior?  Considering upgrading this this or possibly the LG V60 5G otherwise and moving my wife to my G8X, but trying to get opinion/feedback on it.  If you chime in, state whether you're still pure legacy Sprint vs say TNX mode as well please for clarity.
    • Thanks for the analysis on those sites! The Juanita-Woodinville Sprint tower at 47.74330, -122.19131 was mostly a surprise because:  The T-Mobile tower at 47.74440, -122.18346 is only 2000ft away and the T-Mobile tower at 47.74641, -122.20140 is only 2700ft away. The fact it NEVER showed the 312-250 PLMN. This is despite me trying hard to find out if it or the Sprint tower at 47.747532, -122.18941 were going to be keep sites.  If this were to fill that geographic dead zone, I would imagine something located closer to Oskam's Corner would be more suitable. I guess it is a case of a bird in the hand is worth more than two in the bush.  As for T-Mobile's roll-out of B41/N41, I have to say I am impressed with the speed of deployment. Driving north on I-405 from the start at I-5, I locked my phone to B-41. I did not lose my T-Mobile B41 connection until I reached Kirkland. Even then, there was only a small gap and I likely would have been able to reach north of the 124th in Kirkland without issue. It seems like they are upgrading a number of sites in suburban Snohomish county near the King/SnoCo border.
    • Looks like they're continuing their streak of buying up T-Mobile MVNOs. I wonder how they plan on unifying all of them under one brand down the line, if they plan on doing that at all.
    • Block the DNS lookups (return NX or something like 127.0.0.1) for epdg.epc.mnc260mcc310.pub.3gppnetwork.org and epdg.epc.mnc120.mcc310.pub.3gppnetwork.org and epdg.epc.mnc530.mcc312.pub.3gppnetwork.org And/or block UDP outbound to 208.54.0.0/16 port 4500. You could probably just block all outbound to that subnet, but if you want to be sure it just blocks wifi calling, also restrict to that UDP port. The latter is probably preferred, but the DNS block should work if you don't have the ability to set outbound firewall rules on your router. Regarding the handoffs, that has always worked reliably for me. But you might have to make sure that "always on mobile data" is enabled under developer options.
