Starting a thread for the Toledo market. Thought I had made one, but starting a new one if anyone has information or wants to share anything. The Toledo market is pretty much Northwest Ohio, as far south as Lima, Port Clinton to the east and to the Ohio/ Indiana border to the west.

Thought we had 1 ? Please use this thread to report any kind of NV activity. If your speed is increased, please look @ network.sprint.com to see if its a band aid. Just report if you see the new equipment up or down on a tower. Or fiber added to tower. Do I have us covered ?

Speed test at my home I wish these were network vision upgrades, but they are just band aid fixes tho noticed in downtown I was getting over 1mb which used to be useless at some points.

Sure is quiet...And I looked up all Toledo,OH permits..nothing

I dont know if that tower over by Corey road and 475 is a Sprint tower or if there is another one by there and i cant see it from 475, but i seen a white truck with a red trailer kinda backed up in the gates door at that tower yesterday and it was not an Eccrison nor Samsung truck. I dont want to get any one excited it could be AT&T tho they have LTE here arleady and i went by there today and the gate was closed.

Hopefully you find somthing. I know that the fence is wood atleast from the view on 475 so if they droped off anything or were doing any type of work at all it mabe to hard to see, but it looks like theres a road that you can take to get back that way tho.... heres to hoping

I got a email saying that there was an accepted site in the Toledo market from the NV completed thread, but it's not showing up on the site, so eather it was maybe a mistake or something screwy. I'm hoping not, but well see. Me and Ryan will be on it once towers start getting accepted.

I'm going to have to look at the permits. If anything that was filed in January or anything prior, I will go scope it out. So it looks like I have 6 towers to look at total. Wish me luck all tomorrow

You aren't going crazy. I misread an acceptance report, and thought I saw the first Toledo market LTE acceptance. I discovered my error in seconds and deleted the post. But anyone who subscribed to that thread received a email notice. Sorry about that.

I've been keeping my eye on the tower near Monroe/Secor... Still no changes :/ Makes me kind of regret switching from Straight Talk... :(

Thanks for the update, I have made a map of permits that have been pulled for our market. You must be a sponsor tho, but any donation that you make will help support the site. Work should be starting soon tho in our market. I'm currently in class so I don't have time to give you the sponsor info sorry but if you look around should be able to find it. Also welcome to s4gru.

    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
    • Verizon site at Woodbury Commons finally got C-band. I'm seeing upwards of 600Mbps there, a massive improvement over the <1Mbps I used to see. LTE is now at 10-20Mbps which is significantly better than before where speed tests would often fail. My only complaint is that C-band is super inconsistent. Not sure if it's a software issue but sometimes I'm connected to it and get the 600Mbps speeds previously mentioned and other times I connect and only see 15Mbps. Seems like whatever load balancing the network is trying to do is still shoving a ton of people to LTE, even in conditions where I have a strong C-band signal.  — — — — — You're absolutely right. The site on top of Bais Sarah Hall at 6101 16th Ave got decommissioned. Sad that they haven't installed a new site to fill in that coverage gap.  — — — — — In other news a carrier reached out to the board of my grandmother's building in Brooklyn about installing antennas on top of it so she called me today because she knows I map cell towers and she said a lot of people in her building, especially the folks on the upper floors, are worried about the health effects lol. I asked her if she knew what carrier it would be but she said she doesn't know. A quick glance at Cellmapper tells me it's either Dish or AT&T since Verizon and T-Mobile both have sites within a two block radius of her building but AT&T barely builds new sites so I'm leaning Dish. They're asking for a 25-year lease with an option to renegotiate the lease after 10-years. The board of her co-op said that if they do it, maintenance fees will go down since they'll be offset by the rent that the carrier would be paying them. She said she already voted in favor of it but she thinks that a lot of the older people in her building are against it.
    • Galaxy S7 FE most certainly doesn't have the same level of NR CA (if at all), it also looks like it doesn't have SA NR, so it's is inherently going to be much slower since most of the spectrum is now focused on NR rather than LTE. It's likely the same generation radio as the S21 (or maybe S20). Having trouble finding which it would be.
    • T-Mobile seems to be paying close attention to how much of B2 they refarm for NR, as on this trip down to South Padre Island I saw both 20x20 n25 and 20x20 B2 (but not both simultaneously) at various points on the trip. At South Padre itself, seems like someone else has 2.5 GHz licensed so the n41 setup here is 20+80 MHz. Speeds are still decent, but VZW has 100+60 MHz n77 live (and AT&T has some 80+40).
