There is currently 3 towers in the Sulphur, Maplewood area that have had upgrades accepted. One is west of 108 on Maplewood Dr. ,one is off of Swisco rd and Carbide Rd and the 3rd is on Houston River Rd not far from Beglis. If you are by one it is possible they are causing problems

I'm not even a mile from the Maplewood tower. Thanks.

My shop is off of Maplewood & Hazel. I've been getting some great 3G speeds as of late. ;)

Sprint lte is active in port ArthurSent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk 2

Nice! Quicker than I thought! I hope you are mapping it out on Sensorly for others. Please post LTE engineering screen shots as well as I may do a spreadsheet for this market to keep track of serving cells.

I just had gotten out the gate at work and saw the 4g icon lit up... I'm gonna have to turn sensorly on and ride back by the plant so I can map it out. As the tower I'm on now isn't lte active yet.

I highly recommend the LTE discovery app from the play store. It will cycle the airplane mode to help find it. The SignalCheck app is also good for showing your LTE signal strength as the bars only shows your 1x signal strength.

 

Make sure you hit map trip and start on sensorly then lay down some purple.

Will do!

I know it doesn't mean much but check it out!

I'm sure the Lake Charles folks will be jealous!  ;)  But this definitely means their turn is right around the corner! 

 

Seeing your screenshots I hope the ROM you have they didn't change the carrier files to their name (some idiot developers do this), otherwise Sensorly won't lay down anything on the map. 

 

So where is this located in Port Arthur?

Its the L shape on the port Arthur map I laid all that down the tower that I suspect is throwing Lte signals is on hwy 73 between 9th ave and memorial blvd. I also hit Lte on hwy 365 but it might not be ready as it kept kicking me off

Nice job!  I see it on the map now. 

 

Go into your LTE Engineering screen.  Dial ##DEBUG#, the code is 777468 (SPRINT).  Pick LTE engineering.  Even though you are not connected it should have a three digit serving cell.  These will be very important to determine if you have a second site or not.

Those aren't good signals so you must be far. The best I have seen personally is a -55 or so. Generally if you have a -70 to -80 the tower is in view. -118 or so and it is about to go bye bye.

    • 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.
