Network Vision/LTE - Panhandle Market

Recommended Posts

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.

OK thanks for the info. I saw some lte stuff on sensorly in old town but I thought that would be apart of the Jacksonville market?

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.

Looks like someone started mapping LTE on sensorly. My friend just came back from Tallahassee and told me its much needed there.

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.

    • I activated two Xs Max iPhones via Sprint’s website on Friday, both had the same problem. After the first error, I carefully checked the IMEI that Sprint’s website listed, and the last digit was missing. I manually input the IMEI and activated without problems. When I began the second activation I checked the IMEI first, and the website was again incorrect. So I manually input the IMEI and successfully activated the second phone.
    • Decimal GCI as been there in the Premier Hunters maps for a long time.  Typically we try to keep sponsor maps a little easier to understand, but could do it if requested.
    • I’m about to upgrade four of our lines to iPhone XS in the next few days. The other 3 lines we have are on Android. I’ve always waited for the first batch to ship out in case there are any zero-day problems with the device, software, activation or accessories availability. This year it’s UPS delivery and activation issues. Hope everything settles down this week.
    • records request through the city of san diego...  the city has a master agreement with mobilitie for up to 500 sites.   there should be a 3rd and 4th batch soon, since the 2nd batch isn't even done yet ( I just saw them replace a light pole in pacific beach yesterday, its on the list. )   Just asking...any one know of any work being done in the city of san marcos?
