Network Vision/LTE - Central Iowa Market (Des Moines and surrounding areas)

Recommended Posts

Wonder if someone that knows the area could narrow it down using the GCI posted there and the locations?

I just wonder if it's the tower on that's not far to South side of East University and East Delaware?

I don't know the area by you were on the north sector when you posted the screenshot.  Based on a little reverse engineering I'd say the site ID is close to the one that is Dean/Williams.  There are two 3G/800 ones in that area.

I was at the fairgrounds, then drove from there North to Guthrie and West to the freeway then North. I carried the signal the whole way until the freeway then gone.  Phys cell ID 287, Cell Identity of 127935234.  (iPhone5)  When I snapped screen I was sitting at Fairgrounds and got Avg RSRP -67.50 and Measured RSRP of -99.00  This was all about 5:30pm - 5:40pm or around that.

That kind of points to the same site digiblur alludes to as well.

I will be at the fairgrounds for a while again tomorrow so I will keep an eye on things to see if I can get another reading, I will also try to take a couple diff routes to see what I can pickup elsewhere to pinpoint better.

Assuming they aren't testing a site, and that this site is live now, I'd expect an acceptance report shortly. That would pinpoint it pretty well. Then well have you guys pull serving cells.

Yea I kinda wondered if they were testing today and burning in (or forgot) it tonight. I also wondered if there was ways that they test on a low power or without kicking on an amp which then would make it a weak signal until you get even closer to the actual tower.   Isn't the Phys cell tell that it's two diff sites we've seen today around the Metro 102 & 287 ?

That's the same site as the 102 except you were on the gamma sector. 

 

127935232 DEC - HEX 07A02300 = GCI the PCI is 102

127935233 DEC - HEX 07A02301 = GCI the PCI is ???

127935234 DEC - HEX 07A02302 = GCI the PCI is 287

I was in Ames earlier on Welch Ave, where I normally have 5 bars of 3G signal, but instead I was on "Extended 3G" (aka roaming) the entire time. Could possibly mean there's some tower work being done. I won't be back in Ames for a couple weeks though, so I won't be able to follow up until then.

can you get a screenshot from your engineering screen? you should be able to get to it from the system shortcuts in signal check pro. it looks like your phone is connected to 3G, not 4G. there is a bug where old LTE data will show in signalcheck on some phones, i wonder if thats what you are seeing.....

Got LTE out side Gordmens on the east side right in front of the east side library. Got some screenshots hopefully there useful information ?

It is helpful. What you posted shows you were connected to the new site being discussed above by Dean St/Williams Ave.

See bmoses post to you above from earlier tonight. The Nexus has a nasty habit of reporting LTE data from a past connection. Post a screenshot of your LTE engineering screen (there is a short cut straight from signal check pro).

 

Edit: In Pleasant Hill it is probable you actually have an LTE connection based on the new site, but an engineering screen would still be extremely useful.

Yep and now you see why you shouldn't use Sensorly on it.

Oh we already know. Omaha's sensorly map is fubared from one or two rogue phones.

I wonder what it will take to get the completed towers turned on in Des Moines ?

Define completed towers? There a bunch of sites in Des Moines that have visible progress. We have no way of knowing where things stand beyond that though. Other things like testing and integration need to be done before a site is activated. We have no way of identifying the timeline there. That said,  odds are by the end of the year there will be significant progress.

This morning I updated my profile, prl, went into settings then apps and cleared the data on signalcheck pro. I have 4g in pleasant hill. Here are the signalcheck pro and engineering LTE screen shots.

    • Sprint has updated its VoLTE Page as a result of the merger: https://www.sprint.com/en/shop/services/volte.html Support for additional devices has been listed. A couple of things I noticed: “By enabling VoLTE, you will get access to expanded coverage on the T-Mobile network with capable devices.” and this change to Wi-Fi Calling: How does VoLTE work with Wi-Fi Calling? Wi-Fi Calls will transfer to VoLTE when Wi-Fi coverage becomes poor and VoLTE is available. For this automated transfer to take place, VoLTE must be turned “ON”. Starting in April 2020, Sprint is updating most VoLTE-capable devices to prefer Cellular networks over Wi-Fi Networks. This means that if your device has Wi-Fi Calling enabled, it will only be used if the cellular coverage in your area is poor. If you are on an active call using VoLTE and the coverage does decline, the call will attempt to transfer from VoLTE to Wi-Fi when the device is connected to a strong Wi-Fi signal.    
    • Yes indeed, it resolved my issue.
    • Samsung bandwidth selection app still works?
    • Btw new update is out! With security finally updated! Also, camera improvements, autofocus is much better now, on top of that, a couple of tweaks within the camera app.  Very nice update.
