LTE Signal question


Recommended Posts

Alternatively, you could realize that deployment is ongoing, will not be finished for a number of months, hence will be in flux for some time still.

Had great LTE at my house for a few weeks now, then last night all of a sudden it's back to 3G?? Any reason why they would stop broadcasting LTE?

Yes. They are working on it. In unlaunched areas you can expect the signal to come and go regularly.

Speak of the devil, LTE just turned back on but the signal fluctuates from full to one bar and vice versa. I'm gonna check out this site since it is down the road from me

 

 

 

 

What a tease, back to 3G

You'll need to check out your RSRP values rather than relying on the signal bars.

 

This same thing has happened to me. My serving site for when I'm at work had been active with LTE for about a month now, but for the past week I haven't been able to get LTE.

You sound like me.  A site about 5 miles away from my work went active.  I could catch it just fine being on the 7th floor.  Worked awesome.  Week later it was gone.  Wait another week and it was back.  Week later it was gone and is still gone.  Another site about 3 miles away went active recently and works decent in the mornings with up to 12 megabit speeds at times.  But every day around 11am - 2pm'ish the site goes in the tank with 1x speeds with 5000+ms ping times.

UN-official announced sites will loose 4G alot until it's announced or RIGHT before the market is announced.

Where's AJ's loose 4G picture when you need it ;)

Drove by the site a few minutes after my post, no one was working on it but my signal fluctuates between 3G and LTE. 3G signal is about -75 db and if I can getto the RSRP creen quick enough while its locked on LTE, the latter is about -106

That picture is great haha.

 

 

How do I check RSRP values on the 5? I knew on my galaxy nexus but not since I got the iPhone.

*3001#12345#* press send, and go from there while in an active LTE area. I can't remember which LTE field test menu has signal information.

Called sprint to ask about the tower near me...girl said it wasn't an LTE tower....and the nearest one was 4.1 miles away. I know it's an LTE site...cant miss the panels and RRU's. impossible that it isn't because I was getting full LTE at home and now I'm not. It'll fluctuate to -121 db and back to full signal 3G

if you aren't in an officially launched market they won't support or sometimes acknowledge that there is lte. If you go to sprints coverage maps do they have lte coverage on their map for you? If they don't, then they probably won't help you.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
