Network Vision/LTE - Rochester Market (Rochester, New York)

Recommended Posts

That would be awesome if they are right, I always struggled to get usable 3G at the airport on Sprint, that area really needed work.

 

I have been walking around Honeoye Falls and am at work now, no other sign of the mysterious 4G signal I had pop up twice at my house. I am therefore doubtful it came from one of the two towers in town. The signal was really weak, like -115 to -120 before it vanished a few seconds after, so I was definitely on the very edge.

 

I can only assume that it probably came from one of the towers farther to the south.

 

Hopefully all this news means that work in Rochester is going to start getting some momentum again!

When I purchased the note 3 on launch. The assistant manager said he had 4G at tinsel town before he entered the movies last week. When the movie was over it was gone. Told me, he heard by the end of the year most of Rochester should be live. Someone else said March 2014.

I just circumnavigated the airport with a quick stop to Tinseltown.  Only slow 3G the whole time.  I couldn't even get a 250KBps download from Speedtest.net.  No sign of LTE in the west side suburbs.

 

My LTE experience near Rochester has been limited to Dansville and Brockport.

Damn that's really sad :-( the customer that reported 4G at the airport must have been talking about WiMax or something.

 

I definitely did have LTE in Honeoye Falls south of the city though, even if it was only a weak signal for a few seconds. I am hoping they won't be too much longer with another big "lightning round" of upgrades.

She has a GS4 so no WiMax. Perhaps smoking crack though.

If only she knew that spreading false information would get everyone who looked at this thread's hopes up only to have them smashed into a million sad little pieces... Lol.....

Normally I wouldn't take a civilians word for anything but she was very enthusiastic about it.

Well that's just weird then. No idea how someone could be excited about seeing 4G when there's no 4G. Maybe she was right and they are doing testing or something over there, who knows.

Well I work on Marketplace Drive in Henrietta, and take 390 South to go home.  Hooked up to weak LTE Passing the THruway exit (Where I normally have 5 full bars of 3g) so I think I was actually connecting to a different tower.  Once I got past the Thruway overpass I was back on 3g, then another short blip just before the Rush exit.  I was streaming Slacker the whole way, no stoppages.  I'll fire up sensorly tomorrow (if I remember).

 

Great progress after a long dead period!

What are you using to get the signal strengths showing in the notification bar?

EDIT:  Never mind... Found it...

I found it browsing through this site, took me a while to figure out what it was but I'm really glad I did.

 

For anyone reading this, the app is called SignalCheck Pro and I really recommend it.

I used sensorly coming in to work today, mirrors pretty closely with the map on sensorly. Signal was weak again so I don't think it's coming from the tower next to 390. I'll drive around a bit after work and see if I can pick up some more lte

I took this screenshot this morning just south of the Hylan Dr. exit on 390: http://imgur.com/rZILt4n

 

I was driving so I couldn't get a speed test in, but it looks like LTE is going live, baby!

The tower I picked up on 390 near Hylan Dr. must be pretty far away.  I drove past the same spot about two hours later, this time going north, and didn't get any 4G on my phone.

 

Regardless, I'm stoked.  Soon!

To my suprise today, I got started getting 4G LTE today while out in Henrietta NY. I was talking on the phone when I lost the call and then I looked at my phone to redial and I saw 4G and was so shocked. I don't remember reading that the Rochester market had it 4G turned on yet. I haven't even found it on the Sprint list of cities with LTE turned on.

LTE seems to be hit or miss in parts of Henrietta, but nothing much else in the Rochester area so far... At least where I travel (Greece, Hilton, Chili, City & Henrietta)

    • I spoke with customer care via chat. They asked me to toggle the data roaming switch in settings. I seem to remember this fixing a Sprint roaming issue I had with a different Android device I owned many moons ago. I bet this fixes the problem. I'll be in Hermann Missouri this weekend to test. I'll report when I get back. They also had me update profile / prl / reboot ... but I'd already done that. I'm gonna bet this roaming turn-it-off-and-back-on-again thing actually works.
    • I have a Pixel 2 and could not connect to US Cellular LTE in Nebraska this past weekend. My wife's iPhone X worked fine.

      I'm going to try to get a hold of customer care and see if they have anything to say. I'll report back here when I get a resolution.

    • I just picked up my replacement Max and now I'm waiting for my watch to stabilize (first gen real slow) so I can unpair it (you have to back up/unpair any watches first) then iTunes backup the old X then new iPhone recovery....
    • I just got my Galaxy S9 within the past week.  I am running SCP. The results are interesting.  It seems to stay stable on Sprint B25, but it does see on the report some other B25,B26 and sometimes a B41 neighbor cells all with only slightly higher negative numbers. This is all when WiFi is disabled on the S9.  My WiFi is 5 GHZ running anywhere from 260 Mps to 650 Mps. I have for short periods seen WiFi faster speeds.
