Network Vision/LTE - Panhandle Market

Does anybody have any info for network vision in the panhandle market. I've seen comments that it's not in first or second round so it won't be started until at least 2013, but I don't see any announcements on it. It seems like when you search the internet for Sprint network problems Tallahassee pops up a lot and probably due to having 2 universities and being the state capital is stressing the 3g network. That and asking with how crazy the city and county here are about permitting.

They just starting mounting panels today on the site in ellisville fl which is in the Panhandle market so I'd imagine Tallahassee has or will have work going on soon other than the ground mount sites that have been completed.

The Sprint Network website indicates that they have supposedly done work on the 3G speeds/capacity in the past 6 months, but it is still close to being unusable near FSU campus

Yeah it is completely unusable anywhere on FSU campus. But the other day I was getting about 400-500kb download but then it seemed to go back to the usual 30 40kb or just fail the test. Only places in Tallahassee where you can get any good speeds is either anywhere around the interstate or Tharpe and high road.

I had Sprint 5 years ago, maybe 6 now and back then it was great. It quickly turned unusable shortly after that, and I switched to Verizon. My friends still have sprint and man is it bad in Tallahassee. Dropped calls, unusable data, just pathetic for the last 5 years straight. Its sad really that sprint does not maintain its network.... and they have been talking about network vision and wimax for years like they were going to be the savior, and we never even got wimax here.

 

 

Just for my friends sake, I cant wait till the Network vision sites are deployed so that the 3G becomes usable again, they can talk around town, and the people with LTE phones can actually use them.

 

 

Its been a long time coming, but I will not give sprint a dime until i have fully tested that network.

First LTE site accepted in The Panhandle market today. It's out in the middle of nowhere, west of Lake City. But it's a start. It will be posted on the NV Sites Complete map in the Sponsor section in an hour or so.

I saw the sensorly in Tallahassee too. I have an S2 so can't map LTE but it looks like its on 27 east of Capital Circle where its probably not needed at all because it dosent look like it expands to southwood. I haven't been to that side of town to see if 3G is better though.

 

Lately it seems as though things have been getting worse at my house on the northwest side of town. Even voice is starting to go in and out when it was fine before. The only place where you can be gaurennteed under 150ms and 1Mb is anywhere near I-10.

 

I went to Panama City this weekend and I feel very sorry for anyone there with sprint. Not only was data completely unusable anywhere in the Panama City Beach area voice was also not working. I though my phone had messed up some I did a SCTRN reset and could not get my phone to work basically until I got back to Tallahassee. I don't see how that is acceptable to have that kind of service

LTE confirmed in Tallahassee!  It is located at the corner of High Rd and Tharpe St I have been testing it with multiple speed test apps, and have gotten between 8 and 30 down with pings between 35 and 70ms.

1.5 years since your post, I was in Panama City Beach yesterday (Pier Park).  The 4G (LTE 1900) was unfortunately too intermittent and definitely unavailable inside any bar or restaurant.  The 3G (CDMA 1900) was usable, but only for basic voice, texts, and slow internet usage.

 

NV 2.0 is needed to fill in the "Swiss cheese" network through much of the Panhandle east into northern Florida.

I haven't been back to PC, but I have a moto x 2nd gen now on Republic so I have tri band. It doesn't appear to help consistently get 4g without dropping. If you go on the north side (Capital Circle and I10) there is definitely a legacy tower there, I guess there having permitting trouble. There is other places too where it goes back to the almost unusable data, but then again Verizon is looking like they are heading the same way.

Yeah, it will not get better until B26 LTE arrives in your market. It's just starting to be deployed in the Panhandle.

Sounds like Ft Myers coverage.

    • 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:
