Full scale, but no data


Recommended Posts

I had an interesting experience today... I was in Milledgeville, GA, all day, and had no data connection whatsoever all day long.

 

That's the first time that's ever happened... no data connection at all. I'm interested in thoughts about why that might be.

Which part of milledgeville? My sisters husband and in-laws are all from there, I went to visit them last week before heading to florida and I had great signal and data speeds where over 1meg(around the mall area anyway) . Now about half way to macon from milledgeville I was roaming ever so often but that lasted for about 10 minutes or so which was expected since there is nothing out there until you get closer to macon.

At the mall, at Wal-Mart on 441, along the bypass, at McDonald's on the south side... every where we went, no data. I just found it odd that there wasn't any connection at all, even with full signal strength.

 

Milledgeville's long had Wimax 4G, and until yesterday, I've never had any problems at all with data connections there.

Oh ok, I was in that area as well and 3g was running great(a week ago), in either case though, they may very well be doing upgrades in the area. From west of macon, through gray and east of milledgeville, 5 towers have been confirmed to be upgraded recently.

    • More on Super Bowl preparations here: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl Verizon: That said, Verizon will have some hefty gear on hand if it needs to use it, like THOR, the Tactical Humanitarian Operations Response vehicle, as well as THOR’s Hammer and the Mobile Utility Technology Transport (MUTT) police cruiser. Very cool… AT&T: Like Verizon, AT&T is bringing all the tools at its disposal to serve fans and public safety customers during the big game. That includes a flying cell on wheels (COW) and a robotic dog.   There’s a ton of detail on AT&T’s network build here. Great read!
    • This means a significant number of people feel Dish will never pay them back. Dish should have borrowed more money sooner at lower rates.  T-Mobile has been much smarter at this during this merger period.
    • Dang.  Is there I way we can directly get in on that for the next one if Dish is gonna be paying 11.75%?
    • T-Mobile has been building out new rural sites for the last 6-8 months. It may not be as noticeable elsewhere, but we have had 40+ new sites come online in Nebraska. There have been new builds in Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri as well. If you change the site data to display hex values on Cellmapper, look for sites that begin with 05D, or 062 - 063. Those are new sites in the last 6 months.
    • New Vertical Bridge site built for Tmobile near Red River Gorge area.  Maybe T-Mobile is starting to build out new sites and colos in rural areas now...   https://imgur.com/a/Tv3Ge0w
