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.

    • Pace picks up a bit.  Round 23.  About 86% now "uncontested" and $223 Million total.  Down to 159 licenses without bids.

Basically Money savings on 2.5 mostly rural auction are funding 600MHz purchases.  Also mentions continuing purchases of 2.5 outright. Likely understates the amount of MHz. Auction going slightly faster with 4 auction sessions per day now, but still less than 80% "settled".  After 18 rounds it is at $190 Million, with $400 to $800 Million expected. could go on for another month.  check here for updates about 1 hour after each round: https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
    • Yeah, I went up to Kitsap on Friday. Was able to connect to several n41 sites as SA only in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Silverdale.  However, I could not get any throughput.  It would say Mobile Data Suspended.  n41 NSA would throughput just fine. Was pushing 500-800 Mbps. I don't know if it was the network at the time or my device causing the failure for data throughput. It was the exact same result on every site I connected to.  I'm on a normal Tmo Postpaid SIM.  Nothing unusual.  LG V60. Robert n41 SA   n41 NSA
    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
