text from sprint about NV


Recommended Posts

This canned text has been available for Care reps to send to customers that are experiencing Network Vision-related disruptions since the build-out started. It may be that they are taking a more proactive approach now that NV is getting into full swing for the next phases.

It is a absolute mess. If i walk from home to work, the service is un real. But If I drive, service doesn't compare. it's weird

I assume you don't get an LTE signal inside your home or office. A quick trip in the car might be shorter than the interval between your device's searches for LTE service, resulting in no search for LTE service during a quick drive to work.

 

When you get into your vehicle, try cycling airplane mode, which will force the device to look for LTE service. I do that when I run Sensorly to map a service area, and the phone will find LTE when airplane mode goes off where it wasn't using LTE when I entered airplane mode.

Well, It's super weird. i walk from the entrance to the back, where I live. If I walk, I get great service. only 4MB down. But I'm walking out my door, and I get 4+ bars. 7 ft away. Near full service, I walk towards my door. service falls. I walk inside And I switch to 4G and 1-2 bars.

It most likely means you're getting service from the other side of your house and your house is blocking the signal. For instance, if the signal was coming from a site to your north, and your front door was on the south side of your house then in your back yard you could have a good signal (IG your neighboring building behind you is not too close). You could also have a weak but usable signal inside. However, the south side of your house would be poor or not usable.

 

But outside your front door you would be in an RF shadow created by your home. As you walk away from your front door toward the street you move farther out of the RF shadow and signal would reappear and get stronger. Probably more and more until you get to the first building across the street.

 

This is common when you get more than 50% of the coverage distance away from a site when you're on LTE 1900. And this may be what you're experiencing.

If I walk out my door, to the right is a tower I've been connecting to lately. That's the one that 2 months ago, I never connected to. The one by 69 is the one i was always connected to.

    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
    • From a few days back: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/deutsche-telekom-aims-50-t-mobile-ownership-2024 DT Chief Executive Timotheus Hoettgas said buying the majority stake in T-Mobile US was the group's most important strategic project at present, according to Reuters. He said that stake should top 50% much sooner than its previous projection of 2024. Earlier this year, DT paid $2.4 billion to SoftBank Group to increase its stake in T-Mobile US to 48.4%.
    • 5.9GHz finally approved by a court: https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/court-upholds-fccs-decision-59-ghz.  This should be added to 5GHz wi-fi.  considering wi-fi 7 will be included in the qualcomm x70 and related SOCs, doubtful they will be able to add this now, unless designed to be added later.  5.9GHz will given us a third 160MHz unique carrier iirc, a major improvement.
    • waiting for about 400 with demand > supply, or 95% to look again in some detail.  Until then : https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
