The likely 1x800 site, based on two 1x800 and one 3g offset sectors is in West Michigan market south of Grayling, MI on I 75 near Little Mud Lake

I'm thinking that Sprint has made a deal with Meijer to put roof top small cells on their stores because I passed by a Meijer on the west side and went into a Meijer on Lake Lansing and SCP showed small cell each time. My signal peaked at -54dBm at times around the store on Lake Lansing.Screenshot_20180526-220133.thumb.png.b8368ef824eb39dab53098e61273cd81.png

I haven't noticed this at West Saginaw, Grand Ledge, or Ionia, but I'll be keeping an eye out.

Any fellow West Michigan folks been having B41 issues the past week or so?  Randomly B41 is just totally unusable for 15-30 minutes.  I've noticed that my phone and/or magic box are useless.  At first I thought my MB was flaky so I turned it off and B25/B26 was stable, however, my phone eventually latched on to B41 and went to a brick.

Jeff.... having similar issues here on the east side of Michigan.    All I can get is a very crowded B25 (1900).      B41 is sometimes available, but data is not very good.  Speeds are way down.

B25 has been reliable over here, just a pain to shutdown the MB, etc.

I wish the Hidden Menu screens in the Android P beta would work so I could change the available bands

I don't normally see a lot of B41, but what I have seen this week has been stable and relatively fast, like normal. Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids mostly.

Freshly installed Airspan small cell on Chicago Ave and W Saginaw St:

I saw BWL install power on the 24th. Has yet to be powered on. It seems to be backhualed by Ethernet (not relay). Ideas as to the ISP (possibly Lightspeed)?

I've seen a few SC connections pop up in SCP in the last two weeks, hope to see more density as it is needed!

T-Mobile roaming in East Lansing!

aIrqGSBKCE63YCY3iXRNGVZ0H51AkoUglISY354M

Have you guys seen roaming at all too?

 

I haven't seen anything, but I also haven't been actively looking either.  I've got a few spots out by Portland that should be covered by T-Mobile Roaming, but I still just lose service.

I've seen TMobile roaming around Portland, so its well into West Michigan.  It's not consistent, but its filling gaps

I have question about this. Why if your getting Sprint 1x800 can you not get Sprint LTE then?

1x800 is usable at greater distances from the cell site than any other LTE signals. Plenty of reasons why LTE might not be available or reliable. 

 

Plus they seem to be adjusting roaming levels, allowing it when Sprint LTE signals are just weak, not all together absent.

My biggest issue currently is that when I roam on the local t-mobile site, it changes my system time to GMT and screws up all kinds of shit

Does anyone know who Sprint uses for backhaul in West Michigan?  Is it a master contract for the area, is it based on the tower leasing company, or is each tower a separate entity?  Portland starting having massive telco issues yesterday afternoon that still persist.  It's impacting almost all wired and wireless providers, so my gut is that its backhaul.  So bad that the school and city government have put out notices their phones aren't working, with internet access being very spotty.

I'm trying to figure out who the backhaul providers in the area how, but I'm coming up short on my Internet sluething.  I thought at&t and merit had fiber running through town, but I'm not able to confirm that via the online maps.

Turns out it was at&t backhaul, they got it fixed sometime on Saturday, the Sprint connectivity is still flakey, but its getting better.

Older post but I can confirm, all of the Meijer stores around my area in KY have a small cell on the roof with an antenna down inside the store also. Cellmapper has first seen dates of March and April 2019 on all of the ones I've checked so far around here.

    • Yes the site at the Mountlake exit off 520 broadcasts 5 L2500 carriers. Many sites in the area do nowadays. The B12 is T-Mobile/AT&T roaming. If it's displaying as Sprint, it's T-Mobile roaming and it's unlimited and unthrottled. 
    • Saw a 5 carrier B41 on the 520 by UW. Also, have noticed B12 showing up on my phone as Sprint. Sent from my LG-LS998 using Tapatalk
    • This is a follow-up to my posts of Sept 7 and Sept 20. Well, things haven't worked too well with the Sprint MiFi8000.  After a promising start, things degraded quickly and I started to experience the spontaneous reboot problem that Sprint MiFi 8000 and Verizon MiFi 8800L users have reported.  Originally I thought that it was related to the signal level -- but in the end I decided it was some thermal issue.  The units do get warm...  So I sent my 4 MiFi 8000 units back to Sprint. And I was never happy with the Peplink/Pepwave Max On-The-Go (OTG) unit.  I had several problems with it and the support folks weren't very supportive.       So I bought a second HTC 5G hub (now I have two).  Attached is a photo of the two units.  I got my old Cradlepoint COR-IBR1700 out of the closet and am presently using its load balancing capability.  The 1700 has 5 ethernet ports; 4 of which can be assigned as WAN or LAN and the 5th is set to WAN.  So I set those as 1 LAN and 4 WAN ports -- the LAN port ties into my house ethernet, and two of those WAN ports go to the ethernet ports on the back of each HTC 5G hub.  But the 1700 seems to be in Round-Robin mode even though I have it set to Device Usage mode (balanced usage) -- well, it clearly isn't doing that.  The one on the right is 75.51 GB while the one on the left is 116 MB. At this point I've been very happy with this setup and the internet has worked continually for the past 3 weeks since I brought this system up.  No spontaneous reboots (e.g. MiFi 8000), no blank web-interface screens (e.g. Peplink MAX OTG), and no internet dropouts.  Scott  
    • When will Wi-Fi backhaul be enabled for the magic box? Mine is not connecting.
