3g performance in yuma

Verizon just turned on their LTE towers today.. Luck them..

 

on another news. I was talking to one of my buddies who is friends with the owner of BeamSpeed here and he assured him that sprint will not get 4G soon because he owns all the frequencies that they need to light it up, and he has not been contacted by them yet.

 

I wonder how valid this is.

He owns all the frequencies? What kind of crap is that? He owns Sprint's spectrum? Not true. Maybe he is speaking of microwave, but there will be no MW backhaul or very little in this market.

That does not sound valid. No offense I know the beamspeed guy is your friend, but beamspeed is full of it and has been since their inception. It's sad that they charge $70 dollars for "broadband" internet that barely gets 1mb down. I've seen some of the spectrum that beamspeed owns and it seems to be in the 900mhz range and I think that is what they use for their current services. Maybe he was talking about wimax?

none taken, the guy is not my friend; i just know someone that is and that is what they told him.

 

i havent taken the time to see what he really owns, but my understanding with NV is that Sprint is deploying 4G on what thet already own. Robert might clarify this one he reads it or maybe one of the other members will.

That was my understanding and what I was trying to make sense to my buddy who was upset with Sprint after he was told that. I did make sure to refer him to this website to get things straight. :-) Thanx for chiming in Robert...

 

 

and yes, he does own lots of microwave.

The site network.sprint.com does not show Network Vision upgrades. They only show 3G/voice maintenance upgrades handled by Ericsson under their nationwide network maintenance contract. These are temporary upgrades to help provide some incremental improvements prior to Network Vision starting.

 

Network Vision should arrive in the Tucson/Yuma market some time this Winter. But it will take 6-8 months to complete 100%.

LOL, Robert, remember where we live man!!! we only get one month (if that) of winter..

Just saw a construction crew working on a tower on 32nd street and Ave A, I didn't have the time to turn around to talk to them and see what carrier they are working for. Hopefully they are still there tomorrow so I can stop by.

My buddy's that are on Verizon have been quick to point out their LTE service...hopefully we get some concrete proof that Sprint LTE deployment is ongoing in Yuma.

 

I don't think any deployment is going on in Yuma. If anything just capacity upgrades and speed upgrades.

Yeah thats what I'm thinking, I know there was unconfirmed word that Yuma LTE deployment (along with Phoenix/Tucson) was bumped up early to this winter/spring.

 

I was holding out hope...guess I still am.

Ok, so maybe some light at the end of the tunel.

 

I just got a text from my contact that works for City of Yuma and told me that he just reviewed Simin Network Vision project permits last week. The city permits are valid for one year so hopefully they will start work here soon..

 

the permit included multi mode antenna, new battery cabinet and distribution cabinet, new fiber optic cables and and new RRH's, new combiners.

No the one on Ave B is not a new tower. The new tower is located down by Somerton Ave and CO 11 1/2 street. and it does have the new panels on it.

 

and as far as the phone, my best advice would be to play with both phones you like, even the GS3 and make your decision. all I gots to say is that I really like my Evo

    • 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.
    • Same with factory unlocked
