Network Vision/LTE - VT/NH/ME Market (including Manchester, Nashua, Portsmouth, Burlington, Portland, Bangor)

I thought VTel owns BRS there and they are a RRPP member. Sprint should have had access to their network by now given the deal was announced in 2014.

I was at Hill Farmstead this Saturday (Greensboro Bend, VT) and my iPhone 7 was roaming in bands 2, 5 & 30. iPhone noted “Extended Network LTE” but I had zero bars of service for voice. Seems data only. 

Is this typical?

thought V-tec and USCC were also roaming partners here. Service left much to be desired to say the least. Blew through the roaming bucket in an hour.

You were roaming on AT&T LTE—no other provider really uses B30. The bars all being empty means that you weren’t connected to a network for voice (CDMA). 

For some reason it looks like you weren’t able to pick up either USCC or a regional carrier...

There is new Sprint coverage in Goffstown NH today. I verified new Band 25 LTE coverage coming from the tower behind the Shell station. The coverage fades out quickly driving west on 114 but its the biggest development in my area since I have been following their coverage. 😀

Cool.  That's NE90XC479.  I will get that added to the maps.  Should be full Triband.  Looks like there is a second site planned for the west side of town too.

Great news on additional towers Robert. I have been mapping the new one these last few days on my commute and see band 26 as well. It carries ok on Mast road. LTE kind of fades out by the Ford dealer but I now have LTE for the most part from Manchester to about 7 minutes from home.
