We're already ahead of the game on this, actually Sensorly will tell you that this old news. I'm just going to say before it gets asked, nothing special happens on this day. No magical switch is thrown on supposed sites they are holding back. Deployment continues as planned. The only difference you will see is on the Sprint.com coverage maps and Sprint reps can open tickets with issues on the completed sites. That's it.

There's a pic of a table and on top it says this message is for ........ Miami/west palm........ markets yet the table itself only mentions west palm. Miami and west palm are the same market. Hence my question.

The statement above the table in the pic refers to internal Sprint markets, not cities. Miami/West Palm is a Sprint market, and it contains many cites. West Palm Beach is being launched. Miami is not.

 

For reference, we long ago created a Sprint market map:

Actually, this brings up a question. Somewhere on this site it was stated that the panels initially have zero to no downtilt. After an area is complete Sprint dials in the downtilt. So is the downtilt dialed in when a market is considered 100% complete or when the market is announced?

Honestly, I think the zero downtilt is a popular myth. If Robert has solid evidence to the contrary, I will be happy to stand corrected. But my empirical experience has been that LTE sites go live with their designed downtilt, even though that often leaves LTE coverage gaps until other surrounding sites also go live.

This has always been my thought as well since they do not want to adjust things later unless absolutely needed. I do not know for sure as my area is pretty much a zero downtilt area.

I don't have an LTE phone yet (next week!), but based on looking at the sponsor maps and Sensorly, I am slightly surprised they are considering Port St. Lucie's coverage launch-worthy. Coverage looks to be significant in the central and eastern portions of the city, but less so on the west side.

Sensorly is user based, so there could be coverage there but until a volunteer goes out and maps it, it will show as no coverage.

True, and the mapping activity has been moderate at best here (there are areas on main roads with no color that obviously must have coverage), but I also considered the sponsor maps. I believe I came up with about 4 towers out of maybe 11 or 12 that would benefit the city. I guess there could be completed towers that haven't made their way onto the maps yet as well, especially considering Robert's vacation.

In the picture of the link, why does it say in bold for <insert cities> markets only, but the actual location in the list below that has nothing to do with the market listed.

 

For example, I'm in Nashville and in bold it says that announcement is for the Nashville market.

 

But in Tennessee, only the following cities are affected: Memphis, Greenville, Tullahoma

 

Those cities are nowhere near Nashville at all.

So in your case Memphis, Greenvilly, and Tullahoma, which are part of the Nashville market, are being launched. Nashville, also in the Nashville market, is not.

Touchè sir. Thanks for the clarification. Was crossing my fingers of trying to read between the lines. Was being optimistic. Back to WiMax for now.

Any idea why the LTE maps in Los Angeles are so spotty? Is it the current state or 100% depicted on the coverage map? Lots of 3G gaps, which is accurate currently. Just wondering.

 

Current... Not all towers are completed.

The Sprint coverage map has already been updated for the major markets of Los Angeles, Memphis and Charlotte. After looking and comparing the NV complete sites and the Sprint coverage map, I would say that the coverage presented in the Sprint coverage map is pretty accurate. This gives me good confidence that the info Robert gets every week is trustworthy.

    • Almost at 76% licenses "sold" at $160 million. Like watching paint dry.  Will check again in a few days. 
    • I guess we'll see how many takers there are for this: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-08-04/dish-nears-launch-of-mobile-service-taking-on-at-t-and-verizon One early drawback to the Boost Infinite service is that, for now, subscribers will need to buy a $900 Motorola Edge+ phone to get connected to Dish’s new network. More phones that are compatible with the system are expected in the third quarter, Dish told analysts Wednesday. Registration Site: https://www.boostinfinite.com I remember when Virgin Mobile went iPhone-only: https://techcrunch.com/2017/06/21/virgin-mobile-goes-iphone-only-offers-a-year-of-service-for-1/ That didn't go so well.
    • Hey Mike    Ya I was the one that brought the issue to your attn for the color thing on my 6T like 3-4 years ago   that was fixed after like 6 months  and I never had any issues with that anymore till the 1st  Android/OxygenOS 12 update but it hasn't done that anymore (that i've seen lately)   it just doesn't give me the  signal strength much anymore  it'll show it for like 5 mins then  switch to  "--"  and stay that way  Sometimes if I close it out and reopen it  it'll come back (tho the icon is delayed showing up for like a min  or so when it used to show up instantly) but after a few mins it's back to showing "--" again and other times it'll just come back to the "--"
    • Sounds like an awesome project—keep us posted on how it’s going! Also—if you’re able to figure out logging, I can work with you to get the data uploaded to SignalCheck. 
    • Yesterday, I saw a post on Facebook from an old friend about the Evolve III Maestro, a $60 laptop (at Micro Center) that apparently has an LTE modem in it.  Specifically, the Quectel EC25-AF*.  The nearest Micro Center was sold out of new ones, but offered open box at $48.  So for $51 after tax, I walked out this morning with one.  An absolute steal. I backed up the Windows product key and then put Kubuntu 22.04 on it.  I spent a lot of time today trying to get the build tools installed so I could get the wifi module installed and running, and once I did that, I pretty quickly got to sending it modem commands, which I've never done before.  I don't have a SIM in it yet, but it does seem to function as it should.  (I figured out the command to get Timing Advance values out of it, but without a SIM, I doubt it would have such values.) Now I'm trying to puzzle out how to write some kind of script or small program to use it for logging purposes.  I think I've worked out how to send commands to it from bash using socat, but I need to pick specific commands to run.  I'd actually like to replace some of my phones with this if I can get it to record cells, with GPS, and cycle through a set of bands repeatedly.  My current phone collection consists of 9 phones other than my main S21FE, and they require babysitting while I'm logging.  It'd be nice to pare that down to a more reasonable number and let the computer do the work, hopefully in the back seat with less babysitting. - Trip ===== * Per the spec sheet, it supports B2/4/5/12/13/14/66/71.  That'd cover all of Verizon and US Cellular LTE, all but B29/30 on AT&T, and all but B41 and Sprint Keep on B26 for T-Mobile.
