So is there anything sprint in the tower I took pics of. What is this talk of south county? Is that what its considered toward the proving ground past the foothills?

I can't answer about the tower (as I too asked about a tower).

But the Foothills is East county or just part ( Wellton, Tacna & Dateland is East County ).

South County is south of County 14/15th, Gadsden and San Luis are the " Cities" there....

YPG is more North County........

 

I hope this is helpful,

Lateck,

That's why I was confused when he was asking about South county.

I have been praying for LTE to start showing up in Tucson.  If just so I can stop having to get a notification on every post and stop monitoring this thread!!!  :)

Oh well. It's pretty standard for them to turn it on and off the first couple days. Hopefully newgrounds can drive around the area a bit. I can't randomly justify driving through that area and I'm leaving town Friday (go figure).

Eh, there's one tower that can do both. See the site map thread in the sponsor section for my prediction.

(Actually there's more than one tower that can do both, but if it was the other one I should have seen LTE at work)

1.1 miles to Amphi and 1.5 miles to the UA "area".. very doable. Speeds over 10Mbps? Not likely, but connected and usable? Sure.

 

LTE will continue to connect to a lone available tower long after CDMA services switch to a closer site, assuming downtilt allows.

    • Is there a DL speed cap on TNX?  I haven't ever gotten better than 160Mbps DL on N41 aggregated with 20x20 B66 even when near a tower in the middle of the night.    Almost seems like a software cap as speeds quickly approach 160 then just flatten out.    
    • 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.
