Shentel NV update

Recommended Posts



Currently, we have completed leasing and zoning on 456 of the 521 sites we planned to have at the end of the year. 328 sites are on the air, and we’ve launched 4G LTEs on 276 sites.


This brings us to 75% of our covered POPs now have LTE. We currently offer LTE in 10 of our 13 market areas. We are still on budget, and expect to complete the project before year-end.

I remember when I visited Gettysburg College, I could not find a place without LTE. It was awesome having 15 Mbps city wide! I just can't wait for LTE to be widespread in bigger cities like it was in this Shentel market.

I know most of 81 from about the Sweet Briar area to 66 in Virginia has LTE coverage and decent speeds (~15 Mbps down). I'm sure based on Sensorly that it extends further north, but I've never been that far so I can't comment. Very few patches based on my mapping now, and getting better each time I drive on 81.


On 66, it's much more patchy and disappears entirely by the Fauquier county line. I've not noticed much if any improvement beyond the initial launch.


On 211 in Virginia it's also very patchy, with LTE entirely gone (and service in general) past Luray moving into the national park. I'd hate to wreck in there! Service doesn't come back till about Sperryville, as I recall. The area is pretty much the middle of nowhere, I can't blame anyone for not servicing it properly.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now -- should hopefully resolve the issue with the new NR NSA band display missing on some devices. To clarify, this new field will only appear if the NR frequency is identified (i.e. the app is showing "5G-NR 2500"). If the frequency is not displayed, that means it is not available.. this information is not widely reported on NSA connections yet, although it is becoming more common. @chamb your S22 was not reporting the information at the time of your report, that is why you are not seeing it.
    • Sprint eNB 5777 -> T-Mobile eNB 219211 Located at 40.598077070553046, -74.06554695233527 I actually passed by this site last summer when I was searching for Staten Island keep sites and at the time it wasn't broadcasting the keep PLMN. 
    • March 1st Play Store update appears to be out for our device (not sure when it came out).
    • Mike, i sent you a screen shot of my S22 not displaying the band or site note or the neighbor list as I see on your example.
    • Hmmm interesting.. it's working on my Pixel 7 and A32, you should see something similar to below. I will add some extra logging and get another update out tonight.
