Shentel data outage


Recommended Posts

As a follow up, actually, my wifes SIII is working fine. Called Sprint, they claim there is a nationwide outage that can affect some phones and not others. Any of you having issues with EVO data connectivity? At the end of the day I feel pretty strongly it's a device issue. HTC really did drop the ball on this device, don't think they'll be getting any more of my money.

LTE in hanover pa has been sketchy. sometimes it work and sometimes not. my one friend is a rep for sprint and says that shentel says the panels keep frying themselfs, not all at once but different sectors at a time. one day ill have -95 for lte then it slowly over 2 days fades away to nothing. I guess the RRU's are frying or someting.

I've been having difficulties with 3G and LTE in the Hershey, PA area. Just a week ago I was pulling down great LTE coverage at work, better so than in weeks past, but this week I haven't been able to connect to LTE at all and 3G has been sluggish. I also have a tri-hotspot and it reverts to Wimax now because the signal on LTE has been poor.

I'm having a lot of trouble with lte and 3G in the Bay Area the past few days....did they say anything more specific other than a nationwide outage?

 

Bay area... California? That would have nothing to do with Shentel issues. Shentel is only in PA, MD, VA and WV.

I'm aware. In the second post of this thread, he mentioned that sprint claimed there was an isolated, yet nationwide outage.

Oh, right. Late night. Fairly certain that was a cop out, does that really sound like something that would happen?

 

Lots of work still going on in the Bay area with NV upgrades. It's possible the problems you've been having are related to that. Or any number of things.

Yea, that's what I thought haha. Definitely something sprint representatives would say. That's likely it, there most definitely has been a lot of activity in the Bay Area lately.

Yeah, and unfortunately Sprint probably won't be much help either, as there isn't "officially" any LTE in the area, with the exception of a couple communities north of the area, Santa Rosa and Fairfield and such.

There is in fact a nationwide data outage. It is not affecting everyone, but I assure it is not BS. The appropriate teams have been engaged, and from the updates in getting, it appears they have been working on it all night.

To follow up, all other lines besides my EVO were fine. Data is now working again on my phone as well. Can you explain how an outage could target a specific device or set of devices but not all?

Can't talk about that until a official fix is given, but all affected devices have been identified and are being re-provisioned.

Wow, that's interesting. Can't wait to hear the details of this.

    • Mine is still working fine here in Raleigh.   There were some outages related to the snow storm.    I have seen it take a couple of days to recover from storms.   It is not among the highest priority services.  
    • Looks like my MB gold at my office was finally decommissioned sometime last week. It was working the previous week and I was out of town last week. I came in today and it was powered down. I unplugged it and plugged it back in but it just keeps looping through trying to establish a connection. Looks like it's time to add it to our ewaste pile.
    • I did spot some NRCA in Crown Heights last weekend. Sadly because I'm using an iPhone I can't see the exact carrier combo but it did report that it was seeing 2 NR carriers. At first I thought it was a glitch or some weird stale data because my phone was still reporting NSA 5G and the primary NR carrier was the 80MHz n41 carrier but reading Sascha's article it's quite possible that my phone was using B2+B66 +n41+n41.  — — — — — On another note, it looks like someone found n5+n77+B2+B66 on Verizon:   
    • This entire FAA argument is stupid with no evidence at all that there is an issue with C-band.  You may be right that there is some conspiracy nut involved. The guard-band between what aircraft altimeters use and cellular C-band is 220MHz.  If any safety critical aircraft altimeter is reading signals from 220MHz away from the frequencies it is designed to use, that is a very broken safety critical device and should have been replaced it long ago.  Everything in an aircraft is designed and certified for precision and is checked regularly.  The aircraft is not designated as airworthy for instrument flight if the systems in it are not certified to be precise and in good working order.  If an altimeter is so broken that it is off by more than 220MHz from the frequencies it is designed to use, it could just as easily be off by 1GHz or more which would likely cause it to fall into other frequencies that are also already in use. 
    • https://www.pcmag.com/news/exclusive-we-found-t-mobiles-secret-weapon-against-c-band Seems like he's seeing: B2+B66 +n41+n41 n71+n41 Not that it really matters, I suppose:
