It is out of Sprint's control.  If they had their way, the IBEZ rebanding and coordination with Mexico was done a long time ago.  It is bureaucracy in action.  Or should I say, Bureaucracy Inaction.

Hopefully it'll move a little quicker, we're in the process of reprogramming our radios to 700 Mhz

Totally agree, just give it time , need to move the congestion of the network to these other frequencies.

Tower on UA campus got 3g NV, now I can't even hold a 3g connection, it drops out or won't even connect for a week!  Hopefully LTE comes soon

don't get frustrated, sometimes they do that, when it comes back online, you might get better signal and speed.

Any word on improved 3G ( or even 2G) in San Luis AZ?

I was there this week and at times I had NO service. Had to lock my phone to Sprint only so it did not roam into Mexico......

Lateck,

 

San Luis and Somerton are on the same boat to Unk. Sprint keeps blaming Centurylink for their lack of backhaul. According to some of the conversations I've had with some sprint executive reps, they can't provide the amount of backhaul requested on their RFP.  They don't even have a time line.  Both San Luis and Somerton have increased 3G speeds, however both of those cities are serviced by one tower each and it gets maxed out very quick.  Lots of people from San Luis are just leaving sprint and going with Clear talk or VZ because of how horrible Sprint is down there..

update on Yuma market:  I've got very little to share with you all today on the Yuma market. So far I've not seen any building permits issued for Spark in the City Of Yuma. I"ve been in contact with Ericsson over an area of Yuma that is just not performing well; pretty much the heart of Yuma. Sprint has identified an issue with a couple of towers and are "working on it". The tower on Ave A and 32nd street has been down since Oct 4th,  The one that they identified as having issues is the one over by 18th street and Riley Ave.

 

And as far as Somerton and San Luis, there is nothing on their end as to when they will be lit up..

Lateck,

 

are you out and about the San Luis AZ area?  Sprint updated its network enhancement web page and San Luis got a couple data speeds upgrades. Usually that's an indication of LTE lit up. 

 

 

Never mind, confirmed San Luis has LTE now..

Hypeo, I do not go to San Luis on a regular basis but I do go monthly. 

I'll be down there later this week and I'll check for LTE with my Note 3. 

And as for Yuma proper, I have not seen any improvement and even a little loss of LTE (4G) is many areas. But out at the college 4G is holding steady.

Yes, San Luis, Arizona has Sprint LTE..... I went through SL on Hwy 95 and I got lte just past Walmart. With the strongest by the Catholic Church and it disappears by time you get close to the boarder.

Lateck,

Yes, the tower is across the street from the church. The one tower does very little in San Luis, the town is so big and lte is so frágil, even 3g doesn't cover the entire San Luis city

From what I gathered in reading around the thread here it should be completed by the end of 2015, I know public safety in yuma is moving away from 800 and into 700 already

Yuma has like 3 cell towers and a population of 50 lol.  So Sprint owns 700 already?  Thought there was some huge auction coming

I'm not sure what this has to do with discrete math but it was one of my favorite courses in college as a math major!

Yup! CS major! And I was trying to find an algorithm run time while reading your post so my brain didn't fully comprehend.

Here is a little insight of what is going to happen in the very near future in Yuma County..

 

This is from our IT dept email.

 

 

 

 

 

Services Impacted:
 
The ITS – Radio Division will be replacing existing 800MHz Radio Frequency (RF) site equipment with new 700MHz equipment at Stone Cabin as per our Rebanding agreement with Sprint-Nextel and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The Public Safety portable radio voice communications in the southern part of La Paz County and northern Yuma County on Hwy 95 will be affected. Users will encounter communication problems starting at 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM, Thursday March 19, 2015.  Please make sure to use your mobile radios in the areas affected to support your operational needs, while the YRCS RF replacement is completed.  
 
Summary:
 
The RF Site equipment replacement at Stone Cabin (Yuma County – Hwy 95).  This major upgrade is for the YRCS public safety agencies.  It will replace aging 800MHz equipment with new 700MHz to comply with the FCC mandated 800Mhz Rebanding.  We will work timely to keep the outage to a minimum.
 
Customer Impacted:
 
Public Safety - Yuma County agencies, La Paz County agencies, Arizona DPS and ADOT.

Received some sad news today from an executive rep at Sprint for Yuma. No updates or upgrades are scheduled until 2017.. That's a bummer

    • One thing that occurred to me after my post is that I'm actually not sure if it was based on timing or based on changing my device.  My current device doesn't attempt to use SRLTE, so I'm guessing it uses VoLTE for 911 calls.  That might be the difference. - Trip
    • I didn't know that had changed, thanks.. very good to know for testing!
    • It has to be a new SIM, not a previously-activated one.  For a long time, Verizon would only let it connect to LTE for 90 days and then disable LTE access, so I have a pile of Verizon SIMs so I could toss and replace when my SIM after 90 days.  That stopped happening at some point, though I'm not clear when. - Trip
    • I just built this PoE and USB 3 upgraded WG3526 with an LM960 in it today   I am testing it on the two Kathrein antenna I put on my TrashMonster™ tower. It works great so far. I use 3 foot of LMR400 7/16 DIN male to SMA male. The cards are pretty on par with each other. They both get lots of aggregation combos, the Quectel is Eng samples only and the LM960 is on production revision 2, model A18 now. IMEI manipulation is more for Quectel if you need that for your plan, Telit I haven't figured that part out yet. The 960 is mPCIe so no adapters for most embedded router slots, the EM20 is M.2 so unless you get one of those fancy new routers I mentioned above you need an adapter. What other questions do you have for me?
    • How do you get your Verizon SIM to connect to LTE without active service? Mine will only connect to CDMA.       Pixel 2 can do NSG, but Pixels require a licensed/pay copy of NSG to band lock. Other phones supposedly don't. Google disables Qualcomm diagnostic mode, so NSG has to jump through some hoops to get it working. On the 4 they don't even include the driver for it, and you have to flash the userdebug vendor image every month. Pixels are fantastic for NSG and logging, except if you need to band lock and don't have a license. No other way to lock bands.   A lot of people in the NSG community really like one plus phones. They support a lot of bands, and play well with NSG. But I'm not sure how good Sprint support is with their older models (ie CDMA).   If band locking isn't super important to you, you could get a Pixel 3a since they're on sale. They support dual SIM, so you can log on two networks at once with Cellmapper. SCP doesn't support dual SIM yet, and seems to report data for the active data SIM. Neighbors will show both SIMs though usually.   Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
