Network Vision/LTE - Tucson/Yuma Market


Recommended Posts

Things are a mixed bag right now. Service has improved in the Foothills but today I was driving around the old part of town and trying to map with Sensory and it could not even pull up the map....

 

Lateck,

This sucks, the tower that I connect to it home started failing again, 3 days ago. It started behaving the same way it did about a month ago.

That is wierd, there should be a tower almost in front of you. I wonder if it's failing like the one at 20th Street.

Well I know the tower their on ave b has had a cherry picker their for the last idk 3.5 months and it looks like one set of panels are missing some. I'm not sure if they are sprint panels or if that is a sprint tower or not.

It's not as quiet in the sponsor area. I'm running out of permits to track.

Do you know if Sprint has plans to add more towers in Yuma County?

I have been playing with Sonsorly (FUN :lol:   ) and I am finding a lot of 1 & 2 bar 3G areas.

I have not seen an acceptable speedtest in the county.. (on Sonsorly)

But the main corrador of Yuma is in the 3~5 bar 3G range  ;)

Work being done at the site between the El Con Mall and Reid Park in Tucson. Orange barricades, and several trucks. Large wire bundles and trenches dug out from the site. Interestingly, all of the equipment on the ground is out in the open, no fence or wall around the site, never has had any protection like that there.

Someone took pictures of the exact same thing in the Nebraska/West Iowa sponsor thread.

To answer your questions about sprint adding more towers. Looks like they are. If you look at the sprint network enhancement map, looks like they added one more tower on 24th Street and 4th Ave,

Blast! They need to add another one out in the Foothills...maybe just north of i-8 exit 12 seeing as how that is only about 3 miles from my house...that would be great! Edited by FanOfSkynyrd

In south county too...

With Sensorly, I was loosing signal completely at times, near Ave B & Cty 19th. In San Luis AZ the same, when you move away from the Hwy 95 corridor.

 

On a side note: It's fun mapping with Sensorly..... I find myself looking for places to drive though on my trips just so I can map it.......

(Can't wait for LTE......)

Tip when using Speedtest.net to check / test your speeds - Use Albuquerque, NM - Internet Exchange NM

It is the best testing server when in Tucson, I don't find Tucson AZ speed test servers accurate as the NM servers.

Haven't replied since July.. This seems dead. Is there the slightest light at the end of the tunnel for LTE in tucson? Because I remember it was estimated to be due in July/August. Yet were in October and nothing new/exciting? Just wondering. :-)

Sure there is! Since then Phoenix started rolling out. Now LTE is only Casa Grande away. We'll get ours eventually :)

Just walked ih the house from dropping the boys at Boy Scouts. Thier meeting location is basically at the base of a tower just south of Sierra Vista, AZ  4067 E Monsanto Dr, Sierra Vista, AZ 85650    PH12AL030 

There was a backhoe there with two workers digging and signs that they had a trenched from where they were at back to the tower. The trench had been filled in. I stopped and talked with them and they stated it was fiber to the tower. They had no information on any other Sprint tower fiber work thier company was doing but did state most of it has been for Verizon and ATT.

broken promises for over 2 years now, this thread is over a year old almost 900 replies and we are still here with no LTE

 

Someone made a promise to you?  Hmmm...

Lateck,

I would agree, a tower in the south of the country would be nice. I'm in the Marines and our shooting ranges are located in the southern portion of the county.

 

I think I roam on a Mexico tier when I'm down there

Look what I just saw at the when at the Barneys on Ave B and 24th. Wasn't able to pull a speed test, but looks like 4G is close!!

 

Can you get it again?

 

Screenshot of location?

 

Engineering screens? 

 

Please? :D

    • 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.
