Network Vision/LTE - Upper Central Valley Market (Sacramento, Stockton, Redding, Eureka & Reno/Lake Tahoe)

Recommended Posts

Easy. My estimates include what i can grasp from the limited info that premiers gave me and from what I figured.

 

A permit to work on a cell site takes about 3-4 weeks to get issued. At the earliest, if they've begun applying within these weeks, are middle to late may before crews can work. It takes on average 45-60 days to get the first signals up. Samsung may be aggressive so stuff may get some sites done in late June but the bulk of the work will most likely be worked on after July. Lower central valley is to be begun late summer so they won't wee anything rill probably the September time frame.

The thing that really sucks is that for the past year I have receiving dates for launch, and then the dates come, and new dates get issued.

 

It is like when your parents promise to get you something or take you somewhere and you keep asking about it and they say next weekend, and the next weekends keep coming.

 

I just want a solid date and have them stick to it.

I have word from Samsung and radio techs this is happening within two months. This stuff depends on a lot of factors though. Weather and inventory, manpower all has to come together to be deployed on time.

Thus it fits into my estimates which correlates to the original estimates in the premier forums which (from what little members told me) have most of the work being done in the june-july-august time frame. Which fits into what jay says which is 2 months-ish.

Yes I hear June or July is when the mass deployment will start. I will know more when I get in contact with the right people.

I spoke to my friend and he spoke to his friend. And there's not much I can say other than the whole lte deployment is happening and under way. We should see lte popping up here and there by June or July. Not much else to say, I know some specifics but I don't want to get into them. I know 3g is getting better around me and everything will get really bad before it gets better. Just remember if you see our notice no service or abnormally bad service near you late at night, that's a good sign. <img src='http://s4gru.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='<img src='http://s4gru.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />' /><br /><br />On another note anyone hear about Dish offering Sprint 25. 5billion to buy us. Sounds pretty good actually.

But on the other hand... that's good to know. Maybe you should become a sponsor so you can help contribute to our knowledge base with the info you're apparently getting. It tends to get lonely around these parts =\

Will $5 count me as a sponsor. Money is beyond tight right now for me. I can still only say so much though until I had permission about what and how much I can say. I don't want to get anyone in trouble with the company I'm about to get a job at, hopefully.

Just spent the weekend in SF and Oakland. I got to say, it was pretty awesome getting 4G and not dial up. Blazing past 10 mbps . Man makes me miss Wimax. Just wanted to share my first experience with Sprint LTE.

Hmm...I was kind of excited with the softbank deal though. Japan's been hitting 2gbit internet speeds so I was thinking softbank could bring asia's technological superiority here XD. But all jokes aside, is the possible dish deployment going to affect what the nationwide LTE rollout? I'm really hoping that we can get a June-August LTE deployment (completion?) because that can start the school year out great for alot of us! By the UCV isn't the only important market they need to be completing, is there any info on when the rest of California and the neighboring states? If sprint can manage to do some LTE completion near the West coast it can really boost sales, especially when the 3rd and 4th quarter are always the biggest ones. Does anyone have word of what's happening now?

Nope. Dish, Charlie Ergen, is just flapping their arms QQ'ing because they haven't gotten their way. The reason is Sprint and Hesse isn't too keen on working with Charlie because of : 1) Dish approached Sprint earlier last year about a possible deal with Sprint deploying Dish's spectrum in return for capacity [abandoned once Softbank came through], Dish then went after Clearwire when it became obvious that Sprint will be buying it, and 3) going after Sprint itself after their efforts at Clearwire got rebuffed. So nothing really will happen until more info is to come.

 

Sprint has already begun deployment all along the west coast. Samsung has begun NV deployment across oregon and washington with LTE popping up here and there now. SF Bay area has been well underway for more than half a year and has seen steady progress (go to Vacaville..4G LTE, NV 3G , &CDMA 800) while Alcatel-Lucent is humming along in socal and has seen slow but steady progress. The only markets that have not yet begun in CA is the LCV which is slated to begin during the summer.

 

The upper central valley is probably underway and the first permit for tower work might have been applied earlier this month (still trying to confirm). I'll need to wait till the end of this month to see another building application summary to see if it really is Samsung beginning or not but work has been confirmed and verified to begin all across the market by at at least June-July time frame with physical work hopefully beginning next month.

Network Vision in UCV has or will begin in the next 30-45 days. First LTE signals should pop up around june and mass deployment across the entire market should be underway by July. Stockton has a little less than two dozen cell sites to upgrade which means only about half of them needs to have upgrades to provide sufficient coverage.

No problem. Keep tabs around here in the next month or so. We're expecting and seeing many new markets undergoing the earliest stages of deployment via applying for permits or having advanced backhaul delivered to cell sites. Should be a huge amount of action in the coming months with all of Samsung , Alcatel-Lucent, and Ericssons remaining markets being deployed.

Visited several of the GMO's around Davis,CA while i was visiting my friends there and did some speed test near these sites. Couldn't get close enough to get physical pictures of the base stations (dirt roads on private property) but can see why Sprint opted to go the easy route with these cell sites compared to the ones inside Davis which are overloaded.

There is a cell tower going up at this park. Orangevale Community Park, Orangevale, CA 95662 I don't know what carrier though and somebody more capable would be able to find out easier or faster than I would.

Where are those sites? I'm in Davis and I would like to see for myself, because I typically get about 80 Kbps

Two are immediatly to the east of Davis near the i80. One way south davis. The three are all physically slightly beyond the edge of Davis city and mainly covers farmland or shot down the highway but does cover tiny parts of Davis proper but it's nothing significant as they are set up for coverage and not capacity.

I work out in West Sac.. Off of the Enterprise blvd exit just before the causeway, here are the speeds I've been seeing for at least a month or so.. Fastest hitting around 1.97Mbps, I'd be happy with that all day at 3G speeds.
