How to tell if your tower has been converted to Network Vision?


Recommended Posts

Hi, i was wondering if there was a way to tell if certain towers in your area have been upgraded to network vision? I live in Spokane,WA where LTE is coming soon and i have noticed as of recently my 3G is way faster when i am at home and way slower at work ( which is 4 miles away). My signal bars havent changed at home but data speeds are hitting 300 kbps. Here is a screenshot is the recent upgrades

well there are two ways to find out, the easy way and the hard way. The easy way is to become a sponsor and you will have access to the sites complete and sites in progress maps, here is info on becoming a sponsor. the hard way is visiting towers that you think might be upgraded and seeing if you see any new equipment installed :)

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
