6 Months in with NV in Fort Wayne


Recommended Posts

The 4G around town, i get 3-10MB down. My contract was up in October and well that's when NV was announced for my City. I thought personally, by now. My in home coverage would have changed, I usually get 2 bars lucky if I get 3. The 3G, I used to get like 10-120 KB/s down inside. Sometimes I pick up 4G and sometimes I don't. I used to get it more then i do now.

Hoping within a couple months, something will change.. Lately I've been roaming when I have my airave on. Never had that happen lol. But oh well, I still love sprint lol. EVERYWHERE and i MEAN everywhere, there is 4G now <3. ty

That's excellent for Legacy systems.

Before they came into my area i hardly ever saw anything over .25mbps.

I also live in Fort Wayne and my service has greatly improved too! I get similar 4G speeds and my 3G speeds are about .4 -- .8 Mbps. I was going to leave sprint when my contract is up this May, but now with network vision almost done (at least in the city) the coverage and speed rivals verizion!!!

I wish I cab say the same. Everything is all 3g accepted not in my town though. Sprint keeps adding T-1s to the legacy system I mean yea it helps but I can see my tower and its 1/4 mile and im at 1-4 bars. im due for an upgrade since January.

I hope things get better for you soon. Before NV in Fort Wayne, My speeds were so bad I couldn't steam Pandora with 5 bars. I have also been surprised about how actual coverage has improved too. I am able to get a decent LTE link and a perfect 3G connection where I previously roamed.

Me too. Just another reason why CT is a horrible state it slows down this hole process.

So you know Lutheran off Jefferson, you've noticed theres 4G now. They just turned on 4G in that area and now it's all over.

I have! I work at Lutheran Hospital, so I noticed it between working on idiots. People, please don't be dumb or I may see you in the ER.

Yup, that tower next to Lutheran is sprint and it just became active :D

I sell phones at Best Buy and its great to show sprint customers my sprint note 2 and show everyone a speed test. I have been with sprint for over 10 year and I am loving life. Just went on a couple of road trips to South Bend and Indy almost LTE on both HWY 30 and I69. To everyone NV is well worth the wait, we in northern IN and the whole IPCS affiliate its been a log wait.

Yes sir. Everywhere now, is nearly 4G in Fort Wayne, I'm so happy. I went from barely being able to do ANYTHING on 3G in town 1 year ago today, to being able to watch full HD on 4G! loven it here :)

    • Did my drive from PHX to SEA & got to experience the terribleness that is the totem lake area. Impressive, speed test didn't complete either time.
    • Weird that they'd go back to the Edge+. Would think they'd let folks use the S22 just like with Genesis. In other news, St. Louis has 10x10 n71 + n66 SDL live. A bit more info here:  
    • Wonder what other spectrum the auto industry can use, how much of the 5.9GHz was being used, and if 30MHz will be enough 20 or 30 years from now. The auto industry has had it for 20 years sure, but technology can move really slow.  It isn't good.  It isn't ready for real world applications. The hardware is too slow to be able to process enough reliable data. It is too expensive.  Etc. I would argue that we are just getting to the point where features that I would assume could use 5.9GHz are just now hitting mass market as the code is better, hardware is not only significantly faster but also cheaper. The baseline trim models still lack a lot of safety features but the next trim up usually comes with a bunch of goodies I'd assume could make use of 5.9GHz. Just imagine where we were in 2005, 2010, 2015.  Mostly just assumptions without enough knowledge of the spectrum use, so a hint of skepticism. With the what, 1.2GHz that opened up in the 6GHz range, getting 45MHz out of 5.9GHz is very meh.
    • 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.
