Myrtle Beach NV!!


Recommended Posts

I now have confirmation for the Myrtle beach area that network vision has begun. It is not NV/4G it is just 3g network vision. There were special roll outs of NV for myrtle beach, Long island, and Alabama I am excited because the network here is worse than crap. Hopefully the 3G enhancements will bring the download speed up to atleast 500kbps lol. Cause we dont even peak 200kbps now. And the calls may actually go through! Please if anyone else has any information on when the approx complete date is. thanks in advance!!

I will be honest when I visited SC this summer (MB and Charleston). I didn't think your speed was slow. However, I though your 1x coverage was awful. 800 SMR will help you greatly.

And what confirmation do you have? Where did the info come from?

 

Sent from a phone using an application. That's pretty cool.

We have been able to confirm that Alabama is under way the other day. Long Island is scheduled to start right about now. It does not surprise me that the Myrtle Beach market could be starting now, but we have not received confirmation for that market from any of our sources.

 

In our Sponsor section, we have NV Sites Complete maps. We get information about the sites Sprint inspects and accepts from their inspectors. We update the maps typically every week or two. If Myrtle Beach is under way, then once Sprint starts accepting sites from AlcaLu, they will start appearing on the Sponsor maps.

 

Keep your eyes to the skies. Let us know if you see any actitivty at Sprint sites around Myrtle Beach and post pictures. We have maps in the Sponsor section that show all the Sprint sites in your area.

I went to Myrtle this summer, armed with only my trusty Clear 3G/4G hotspot. WiMax coverage is terrible, and I was falling back to (Sprint) 3G quite often. 3G was in the 500 kbps range. Coverage wasn't bad.

 

THere are only two WiMax towers near Conway and Surfside (protection sites) from what I understand. This thread totally makes my night as the OP stated, Sprint service in and around Myrtle Beach has become mostly useless... I totally look forward to any updates to this. Why would they only be doing 3G parts of NV, why not the "normal" suite of 3G and 4G stuff? That part confuses me.

Myrtle Beach is an AlcaLu market. They almost always start with 3G upgrades first. It takes them a few months of deployment before they start bringing LTE online. That's what's happening in the DC market now.

Same for NYC and Baltimore as well.

    • It’s a neat and seemingly valid / effective strategy that, at least from my understanding, is only really used by VZW
    • Those are usually left over from the initial AWS deployment, so all run B13/B66 with support for BC0/BC1 (although that’s been shut off on most sites). No NR. Sites with the later Ericsson radios got an OTA update and broadcast B2. On those sites, a B5 OTA update was also available (and tested), but ultimately rolled back. Putting up all that power/spectrum severely degraded the B13 output.  The site atop Crystal Mountain is another story and uses the same setup as the site on the ridge near Neilton. These antennas were selected for their vertical beamwidth. Most modern directional antennas have small vertical beamwidths and would require extreme downtilt to cover the road next to a steep ridge. Thus, they would have a severely limited coverage footprint beyond the road. Omnis can be a better choice in these instances, especially when there’s LoS to the coverage objective (since they’ll generally have lower gain figures). Omnis also don’t run in to the horizontal sector edge problem, which can be difficult to optimize for with directional antennas that have complex or irregular 3D gain profiles. That’s why on a lot of sites on mountains, you’ll see wider antennas used. For example, the Verizon site on Joyce Ridge has three sectors with 80-degree HBW antennas. 
    • Do you know what RAN is behind those Omni's? LTE (bands?) are they pushing any NR through them? Very curious   edit: I guess I could check cellmapper etc but you might know more nuance!
    • N41 here has been expanded from 140Mhz to 180Mhz.  Speeds seem the same so they just need to work on backhaul
    • I noticed today that T-mobile has shut of B41 LTE in the Louisville area and widened the 2nd n41 carrier to 80MHz. That just leaves them with 5x5 B12, 10x10 B2, and two 10x10 B66 carriers on LTE, everything else is in NR (besides their 2G network). They have 20x20 n71, 20x20 n25, 5x5 n25, and 180MHz n41.
