That's what happens when you get your LTE I guess...  still waiting here in Baton Rouge for mine.

I noticed that some base cabinets were installed at a South Lake Charles site on Monday but no panels yet. There is not many sites left over here

lte been on there

 

 

why don't ya become a sponsor and you can see all of the Louisiana Market that have LTE 

 

 

just donate a couple of bucks for the site

 

Jeez just trying to help, thought I'd share my experience - didn't realize the good stuff is locked behind a pay wall.  

 

If you're supposed to donate to see anything why have a free section at all?

Download the Sensorly app or go to Sensorly.com the purple is from other Sprint users mapping out 4G LTE. Make sure you are looking at the Sprint LTE version of the map.

Probably something wrong with the SIM card in your device. We have seen that before. It's difficult to get fixed in a non launched market though as the Sprint drones will argue up and down that Monroe doesn't have LTE.

 

Check all your settings and make sure LTE is turned on.

Boys and girls. I grew up in Lake Charles. I am watching your deployment from Denver Co. I know it's not happening fast enough for you, but know this: We are a larger market than you, and we are behind you. We are just starting to get a few cells around our city.  I grew up on cusic, 1/2 block south of McNeese. (Miss my family, cajun food, fishing, duck and goose hunting and all the friends I grew up with in the 60's and 70's) Enjoy the new network. It's going to be fantastic. Santa

Digiblur maintains a spreadsheet of all the information for the NOLA and Louisiana markets. That's where the stats come from. A number of other markets do as well, but it's maintained by members, not staff.

 

This is the best we've got for the Colorado market, unless someone would like to take it upon themselves to start tracking the data: http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/212-network-visionlte-deployment-running-list/page-3&do=findComment&comment=145611

Thank you sir. You just answered the 100 million dollar question I have been seeking. I can wait 4 months. I started running towers today for fun! I am getting crazy at my old age.... Santa  (I am getting 4GLte forced on my mega near sites that show no activity on our map. Thoughts? Thanks Phil

So I guess I am one of the few people left that keep up with this area; I recently moved  from the Houston market back home with family to north of Beaumont. Where I saw lots of love of 4G speeds and improvements in Houston, back home near Silsbee things seem to have been at a snails pace :(

 

Long ago, I posted a thread about iDEN towers Nextel used to have in the area.

http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/967-rural-iden-decommissiong-and-network-vision/

 

Is there any possibility of some of these old locations re-entering service?

For what it's worth, I was getting Band 41 LTE in Alec late last year (Around the mall and US-165 between the two I-49 exits), but unfortunately the last couple of months I've only seen Band 25/26.  

 

Thought it might be my phone but I've had no problems getting Band 41 in Dallas and Houston.

This could be a sign of better things to come or an outage, but an outage would effect all bands...

    • I activated two Xs Max iPhones via Sprint’s website on Friday, both had the same problem. After the first error, I carefully checked the IMEI that Sprint’s website listed, and the last digit was missing. I manually input the IMEI and activated without problems. When I began the second activation I checked the IMEI first, and the website was again incorrect. So I manually input the IMEI and successfully activated the second phone.
    • Decimal GCI as been there in the Premier Hunters maps for a long time.  Typically we try to keep sponsor maps a little easier to understand, but could do it if requested.
    • I’m about to upgrade four of our lines to iPhone XS in the next few days. The other 3 lines we have are on Android. I’ve always waited for the first batch to ship out in case there are any zero-day problems with the device, software, activation or accessories availability. This year it’s UPS delivery and activation issues. Hope everything settles down this week.
    • records request through the city of san diego...  the city has a master agreement with mobilitie for up to 500 sites.   there should be a 3rd and 4th batch soon, since the 2nd batch isn't even done yet ( I just saw them replace a light pole in pacific beach yesterday, its on the list. )   Just asking...any one know of any work being done in the city of san marcos?
