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.

    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.  
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
    • Same with factory unlocked
