Should I wait or go in 9 months


Recommended Posts

So I get terrible service at my house, the average is a about -100 dBm (barely can hold a call)

 

1. I wanted to know how lte would be like for me

2. Will my signal get better in about 9 months (I live in Houston )

3. How much of an Improvement would it make once my tower is upgraded.

4. Is 800 MHz coming soon

1. It Will be excellent. I believe Houston is one of Sprints remaining markets which has a spectrum crunch on PCS (20mhz overall iirc) and the deployment of SMR 800 LTE & CDMA 1xA V will help out substantially.

2. Yep, SMR 800.

3. Oh.. that'll depends. Expect anywhere from up to 4-10 dB in improvement or even significantly better if you get connected to SMR 800.

4. Yep. It's being deploy sparsely on CDMA 1xA V in many markets and is slated to quickly come into service after Nextel iDen is shut down on june 30,2013. All currently deployed Sprint NV hardware is capable of immediately broadcasting SMR 800 with minor work being done. The problem is that the Nextel iDen network is still running and you can't utilize the SMR 800 frequency till you shut it down.

    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
    • If you need any assistance, firmware or drivers with the radio; I am involved in Quectel's US based sales and field application engineer programs. I am working on the x62 reference RM520/N right now. They are a really fun product to work with.
