Network Vision/LTE - Western & Central Pennsylvania Markets (Lancaster, Scranton, Erie, State College, Williamsport)

Recommended Posts

Just got 4g near Park City in Lancaster, PA.

You're not a sponsor but in recent updates, Lancaster has been receiving some NV love. None were listed as 4G yet, so this is a great sign!

Just got 4G on Columbia Ave in Lancaster near Centerville rd. I mapped using Sensorly and did speed test. 15down and 5up. Hopefully this means good,consistent speed.

Just checked sensorly and saw that that blip of LTE, Thank you for mapping it. I just hope this means CDMA 800 follows soon after.

I'm guessing the tower near Park City is getting upgraded and the one near Marietta Ave.

Aww man I had actually just driven through the area to go up to Lititz a couple hours ago and I didn't look at my phone. Just noticed this on Sensorly a few minutes ago.

 

There is a cell tower right off of Eden road a little further east of the Eden Resort that I saw Sprint NV cabinets at. It didn't cross my mind to snap a few pictures but I'll try to stop by this Saturday when I go back to Lanc. Hopefully that guy starts broadcasting LTE soon.

Are you talking about the one near the 222 and 30?  Or the one that is a further back on a barn silo (I think).

I didn't think Sprint was on that tower, from a Verizon permit on 5-3-13 only VZW, Clear, AT&T and T-Mobile had antennas on that site. Maybe Sprint will move their antennas over? Because Sprint, from what I have gathered, has their site on a barn silo a little bit further back than that tower.

Well I have noticed that I don't have the greatest of signals around that area. I just saw brand new cabinets that were very small and had a very close resemblance to Sprint's NV Cabinets. Maybe it's T-Mobile's equipment, I don't know if they are putting up new cabinets with their LTE rollout as well.

Just saw a blip of LTE in Lancaster at the intersection of Fruitville Pike and Roseville Rd. In between Kmart and Walmart shopping plaza. Seems to be southwestern Lancaster is what is turned on currently.

Driving east on route 30 this morning I managed to stay connected to LTE from Centerville all the way to the intersection on Lititz pike. A lot farther than I managed on Saturday when LTE disconnected around Harrisburg Pike. I mapped as much as I could on Sensorly.

I think that tower that is broadcasting LTE is the one located on 40.051177,-76.379178 which is at Kirby Agri Plant. When driving East on Route 30 the next tower, I think, would be the 40.063377,-76.328674 located at Calder Door, but from I can tell that one has not yet had any work done to it. I have not been able to find any permits for that tower from Lancaster City.

Just saw another blip of LTE on Fruitville Pike heading south between Delp Rd and Granite Run Drive in Lancaster County.

The tower on the silo that is behind The Lancaster Bible College has the RRU installed this past week.  I can't wait until they bring that one online.  The network in Lancaster has been on/off these past few weeks as they have really started working.

You are correct.  Sprint is not located on the tower.  Clear is located there and is in the process up putting in there 2.6 LTE equipment.  Sprint's "tower" is actually just off 222 on the silo behind Lancaster Bible College.

Would this mean that LTE and/or CDMA 800 would be turned on soon? 

Also I don't think Clear should have any trouble backhaul to their site, maybe it will have LTE 2.6 soon?

I would expect LTE 1900 to come online before 800 voice is launched based on historic trends.

 

Lancaster is a Round 2 market for 2.6 I believe, so it probably won't launch officially until the end of this year/early next year.  

 

Overall I'm happy with the progress.  Hope you are too.

So I saw that someone mapped near the Manor Ave/Millersville Pike intersecton on Sensorly in Lancaster.  I am pretty impressed with the progress of the LTE launch.  I am currently at the mall and pullng a steady LTE signal througout.  Hopefully soon they get the tower south of the airport on Lititz Pike turned on.  Its only a mile or two from my house and I really want to ditch my Airave.

Other then the 2 towers that are currently on, are there any plans for others in the Lancaster area?  I am seeing that Western Lancaster is getting mapped pretty decent.

    • I love this stuff: “Standalone 5G really is the future of wireless connectivity,” said Karri Kuoppamaki, vice president of Technology Development and Strategy at T-Mobile, who noted that SA is what enables the more transformative 5G capabilities like self-driving vehicles, super-charged IoT and real-time translation. https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/t-mobile-launches-nationwide-5g-standalone-network Good luck making money out of IoT. 🤣
    • https://www.t-mobile.com/support/devices/android/oneplus-8/software-updates-oneplus-8   update was released today. no idea on how you would tell you were connected though
    • All Good Valid Questions.  If I remember correctly, I think T-Mobile has to assist with financing should Shentel want to buy out T-Mobiles assets.  If my memory is good on that point, it might make a difference. T-Mobile surely has their hands full of issues in the country.  If I were in their shoes, I would be very happy to have Shentel upgrade and manage all assets in the current Shentel area.  Shentel's Sprint network is very very good. They built a network that was better then Sprint was elsewhere.  There is no question that Shentel would do a much better job combining the networks than T-Mobile would.    T-Mobile really needs Shentel to continue their good work. I hope T-Mobile  realizes that. T-Mobile's network in most of the Shentel territory is not good. Shentel's Sprint network is very very good. Shentel could easily combine them efficiently and have a superior network to anybody else.
    • So does anyone have experienced band 71 that's basically unusable and band 12 unusable? I've had no luck with either one in month's.  I'm in the Denver area. Just wondering if it's just my area or nation wide.  
    • According to that link, the OnePlus 8 supports 5G SA, but it didn't specify the software version required. How would I know if I was connected to 5G SA?
