So the good news is that I just saw a buddy of mine that I haven't seen since high school..  It was great   The Great news is that he works for Century Link and they were installing back haul to the

Where is that small track on La Cholla coming from? I was driving on River and i got it for 5 or so seconds and couldn't reconnect. Also all that LTE on I-10 to Orange Grove does not work, or at least i couldn't connect to it..

I mapped that track on La Cholla but the signal strength is so weak that it is hard to tell where it is coming from. I got the hexidecimal ID code for it but not sure which tower it would be associated with at this time. Signal comes and goes. I would say the triangle from river, ruthrauff and I 10 has a tower in the middle of it however I would feel the signal strength would be stronger unless they are operating on a dummy load.  it could also be another tower.

Sensory is showing lte along I-8 corridor out in the Foothills of Yuma. When I pick it up I'll try to grab some engineering screens to see if it's a new tower

I mapped from I8 and 16 street all the way out to Fortuna and I8. It was from the Atlantic Ave tower that was just accepted.

 

 

Haven't read all posts so sorry if this had been shared but seeing LTE starting at exit 30 in Welton wasnt there this morning when I was heading out of town

Pulled 14mbps Down 4 up

Yeah, was going to turn Sensorly on when I saw it but forgot that I had deleted it a few days back since the areas I typically visit around town are pretty consistent and pretty well mapped. It shut off at the dome Valley exit, and i noticed that the foothills were EVDO A for the most part, but I was pulling LTE up till the 8 1/2 E exit a few days ago, guess they have a few tweaks to the tower before lighting it up for good.

06E090 is not listed in my spreadsheet, and looking at my map it's probably a new site. Sensorly isn't giving any clues as to which one though.

Confirmed that the newly accepted tower has the Hexadecimal ID 06E090  01/02/03  N/E/SW.  I mapped Sensorly La-Canada, to River, River to Thornydale / Orange Grove -  Orange Grove west from La Cholla.  Signal very week out that far.

My speed tests are always slow on this phone. I think its because its prepaid Virgin Mobile. I'll check speeds again with my girlfriends phone soon

That hole in Midtown is slowly closing.

That it is sir. Just sucks that once I'm 30 feet from my apartment I lose my signal :/

So I tried to map out the area some note via Sensorly. Well the tower was shut off at 930 am right as I found it lol. Its a small tower next to the bus stop and in front of the CVS on the corner. Also right before it went off I pulled the best speeds at 10 mbps

Notice the RRUs didn't make it into the picture. They should be on a ring a few feet below the frame.

I'll stop by Here later and take a photo from the front

Hello guys, I was just wondering if anyone knows if the site way easy, east of broadway and houghton is broadcasting LTE, according to Sprint CS, they are but I am only picking up a weak signal and I live about 300 years from it. How do I know on the iPhone 5S which tower I am connecting to on LTE?

 

Thanks

1: Look at sensorly, you can pretty clearly see what's broadcasting.

2: The LTE Engineering link in my sig will get you into the serving cell info (hopefully)

3: Cross-reference serving cell info with info posted earlier in this thread or with the sponsor map.

Thank you, this is what my phone showed, also, in Sensorly, it only shows me the coverage map but nothing about sites

The truncated Cell Identity (GCI) sucks, but I doubt we have GCIs for anything in that area anyway so it's not a big deal. The Physical Cell ID (PCI) is valid, however I don't see any information in this thread regarding that ID. I can't share info here gleaned from sponsor threads, so I can't confirm a whole lot for you. Drive a circle around the site you suspect it's coming from and see if you find PCIs separate from the one you've got by increments of 169 (452-169=283, 283-169=114). An RSRP better than -90 is a fairly good indicator that you're very close to the source of the signal too... or just donate to help keep S4GRU broadcasting :)

That's the problem, I don't know what site is broadcasting this signal, I though I was picking up LTE from the Harrison/Broadway tower because if I was picking up from the tower next to my house I would think I would have more than 2 bars.
