Wow. Well Ican tell you those don't look like the new tower in the foothills on north frontage.

 

Yeah, I know they don't, but they don't look like the other sprint tower panels either.

So question. If Verizon and/or ATT put in LTE towers would Sprint be more inclined to sign roaming deals with them vice installing their own LTE?

 

I've not noticed any significant changes in the network. On the flip side I was in San Diego this week and I didn't notice a huge increase in service there than in Yuma.

No. LTE deployments among VZW, AT&T, and Sprint are not currently compatible, and roaming agreements are not in the offing.

No matter if they sign roaming deals or not, Network Vision is a program to upgrade Sprint's entire network and add LTE on every site. Even every site in San Diego and Yuma markets. But currently, no other carrier has deployed LTE 1900 in which Sprint devices run on. US Cellular may add a little in the future. But most of their most likely areas, they just sold to Sprint.

 

AT&T, VZW and Tmo all have some PCS holdings in some markets, but they are being used for other things currently. It will likely be a long time before they refarm any of it to add LTE 1900. LTE roaming of any significance is awhile out. Much farther out than Sprint rebuilding its network.

Any Yuma users have updates? Signal and speeds have been good, I don't have an LTE device yet so I can't even check to see.

 

during the past 3 weeks, we've had more downs than up's. we have been experiencing text delays, poor voice quality, and very low data speeds. Having said that, yesterday I did noticed an increase (not much) on data speeds. today I was on the north end of down town and I experienced text delays again...

Yeah I was just checking out the past upgrades on that site. But weird that you say you've had moredownthan ups cause I haven't noticed service being that badover the past few weeks.

 

you're on the east side of town aren't you? I heard that service has gotten better over there, maybe they are moving west. cross my fingers..

Possibly, I still don't think Sprint has confirmed that Yuma market was bumped up for Network Vision. But like I said, it does appear to have gotten a tad better here on my side of town. Maybe I'll take a drive by the towers and see what I can see.

ok, so I took a drive on the fire truck yesterday out to the East side of town; and your right. service has improved so much. everywhere i went i was hitting at least 600kbps up to 2.01mbps.

 

still the North West side of town is down at the low hundreds throughout the day.

Yeah, I was out at Yuma Palms this Saturday. Noticed signal going from full bars to no bars constantly. Was pretty annoying. Is it like that all the time. I remember when we moved here about 2 years ago the signal in town was leaps and bounds better than in the foothills. Seems to be reversed now.

it's been like this for the better part of this year.

I hope in time sprint can fix these issues. I just gotta keep telling myself to be patient. It will get worse before it gets better. The wellton tower has seemed to stabilize a bit. But I still randomly switch to 1x sometimes.

one thing i have noticed in town is that most of my ping times have been under 100ms. maybe they are finishing up switching us to the 4g switch

maybe...or the network is completely inundated and is bumping people on to 1x. Thanks to the snowbirds of course.

 

I don't believe they are propagating the issue

    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — — The old permit expired for this site without any work being done but a new permit was just approved a few days ago for a T-Mobile site at this address. Description mentions 3 antennas with 2 RRUs per sector. My guess is they're doing something similar to what they did at 360 Furman St in Brooklyn where they broadcast Band 2/66 and n25/41 from one antenna. It's a bit of a downgrade considering the site it's replacing was a full build with Ericsson 6449s. 
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
