Oro Valley.  While at work today, I was surprised with 4G.  Fired up Sensorly so it is confirmed.  I will place the rest of the details in the sponsor section.

A little joy for Sierra Vista,  A new tower is transmitting 4G LTE on the south end of town.

The tower right by the fire station is broadcasting 4G on Houghton inbeteeen Irvington and Drexel. It's strong enough to reach all the way out to my gfs neighborhood past Bilby

Ahh well any idea where the tower is in the area that would have 4G broadcast so far?

Has anyone encountered this problem. My Phone "S4 Mini with Spark" in LTE mode does not accept incoming calls. Outgoing calls take along time to start ringing. The tower we are on is in LTE testing at this time. Switching to CDMA mode returns the phone to normal operation. I will check it tomorrow at work on a different tower.

Sounds like the ecsfb problem that's supposed to have been fixed.

Is Sprint continuing the LTE expansion north of Ina Road, it looks like that's the stopping line when viewing on sensory map, I live in Continental Ranch area still slow 3G speeds. Thanks for any info.

The site(s) covering continental could go live any time between tomorrow and some months down the road, but yeah, if you've got sprint coverage where you are there's a 99% chance your tower is getting network vision.

Hi Desert Communications installed new antennas just north of Overton over the last 3 days.

Sierra Vista and Douglas supposed to be officially launched today. Not sure if that was posted earlier in the thread. Coverage map also shows coverage in Bisbee officially, not sure if that was there before either.

Question about tower on University

 

For the tower a block South of SpeedWay and Campbell, I have a Nexus 5 and I always lose service because of the eCFSB issue that plagues the phone.  Being on campus I always have to toggle my network mode between 3g and LTE

 

My question is since this is a University, and is state land, does that mean this will be one of the last places that Sprint touches for their Network Vision?

 

All I want is a eCFSB upgrade! LTE can wait!

 

edit: On maps does Green mean 800 3g and LTE, or just 800 3g

Are you saying that the tower in question is broadcasting LTE? Or are you losing LTE because there is no LTE coverage?

 

And there is a key on that map. Green = 3G/800/4G

Just 3g 800. The lte 800 map is still premier.

Also remember, this market has no chance of getting 800 upgrades any time soon due to ibez. AlcaLu did not even install the 800 rrus.

Now that the Yuma Market is fat and happy with 4G,,,,  :lol::rasp:

Is there any idea when or if South County will be improved (even in 3G)?  (San Luis, AZ)

 

I would think that they would need more towers????  

 

Just asking, as I travel there every so often and my Note 3 has pooooor signal.  :td:

 

Lateck,

    • This was taking at the cottage but I definitely regret not taking a Speedtest when I got back on I-81 to head home as I took the screenshot of the five bars/full service. My iPhone 11 Pro Max was definitely loving AT&T and hauling ass. Either way, 5 mbps down in the middle of nowhere is awesome and a major improvement from before. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • Sprint has an LTE roaming agreement with AT&T and T-Mobile has an LTE roaming agreement with Verizon. Both of you were probably experiencing some variation of this.  AT&T LTE roaming for Sprint users has historically been capped at 128kbps, so quick speeds would be something new...were you able to get a speed test?
    • The same thing happened to me when I was visiting a friends cottage up in the Thousands Islands and my iPhone began roaming on AT&T when I got past Alexandria Bay exit. Just like what the previous user posted, I actually had awesome and usable service. That never was the case with just Sprint as my iPhone would just show 1X and basically be useless as Mapquest or Google maps would crash. Something tells me New T-Mobile is willing to pay more for usable roaming service in an effort to keep the churn rate down.     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • So I took a road-trip in northern (way north) California, and the new combined Sprint/T-mobile network was almost nowhere to be found. In fact,  found myself roaming on Verizon most of the time...and even got some very usable data! I can't recall the last time Verizon roaming let me use data. How long do we expect that to continue?  
    • From that site on Monday. That brings the total of 2.5GHz currently deployed to 160MHz here (60MHz Sprint LTE, 40MHz T-Mobile LTE, 60MHz T-Mobile NR.) The N41 carrier was bringing in 300-350mbps download in great signal conditions, which is short of the 900 or so it's capable of. However, this could simply be a lack of backhaul at the site. The site kept my phone on a lone 5x5 B66 carrier for the LTE anchor (there is also a 20x20MHz LTE carrier deployed).
