I think we need a separate North LA Thread.

I was wondering when 4g will come to San Luis obispo county cause i live in nipomo California next to Santa Maria and arroyo grande.

 

The exact date is not known. My best guess based on the info we have is that the first sites will start to go live toward the end of summer in this market. We do not know where in the market they will begin, though.

I was also wondering when my iPhone 5 says extended or its roaming in a place that always get great bars does that mean they're working on the towers.

If your phone says extended in an area that usually gets good Sprint signal you are roaming.

 

Try turning airplane mode on then back off.

 

If your phone still says extended the Sprint site may be down. Call Sprint customer service and report the outage.

I just got an email saying 4g is near my town and i would love a map to see how close.

From who? No live Sprint LTE yet in the North LA market of San Luis Obispo County. Probably still a few more months.

Sorry meant to say i got a push notification saying 4g is in your area from sprint zone app.

 

That went out nationwide, unfortunately.  It was not specific to any region.

Found a full build site in North LA. I was keeping track of it, since it's down the street from my work.
 

The guy I talked to was pretty friendly and said they've been working all over So Cal. Their last job was in Indio and were glad they were in Ventura since it wasn't 100 degrees here.  

 

He said it should take them about a week to finish then they'll fire it up to test. I'm sure I won't be able to connect to LTE for a while, but good to know full build sites are starting/have started in North LA.

Oh squigey!! My white knight, my bearer of the greatest news Ive ever read!! I work in Ventura and live in Oxnard and noticed at work today that my usual full bars of reception had turned to roaming. I work at Telephone and Market street in ventura and usually connect to a tower behind Target. Having 4G (even fuctional 3G) hope, feels like hitting the lottery!!

Well, I am very nearby this "full build" that squigey had posted pictures of, but after waiting a few weeks I have realized that there is either some type of delay, or the schedule was moved around possibly because nothing has happened here and that crew has left the area now... oh well, the waiting game continues for the North LA market.

    • Great job on your analysis of small cells versus the 3.45GHZ and the population coverage requirements. I wonder if the fcc is stalling because they may address the key limitation of of 2.5: the convoluted frequencies. Not sure how they would get there, but it would be better public policy if you could actually use a single license in current times, ie 5, 10 or 20MHz. Of course they could also go in more of a nonprofit or small business direction. But most likely they will keep it as planned given how messy the transition would be. In many/most metro areas BRS/EBS is fully licensed. Would be nice if they put pressure on the squatters.
    • I didn't actually look at the buildout requirements before making that comment - they're definitely going to have to deploy on macro sites if they want to hit the buildout requirements. PEA001 has a population of 25,237,061, of which they will have to hit 45% in 4 years (11,356,677) and 80% in 8 years (20,189,649). If they were to cover the entirely, all five boroughs, of NYC using only small cells (something I'd say is impossible considering their current small cell density), they'd only be covering 32% of the population in the PEA. And this is with spectrum that only adds 300Mb/s per sector and will likely have only 50% the range of their current n41 equipment. Doesn't really seem worth it to me. I'm of the opinion that they're looking to hedge their bets in further EBS/BRS acquisition. 
    • These strand mounts also are deployed with Band 46 (LAA), in my experience. I have yet to encounter a strand mount with exclusively 2/66. 
    • Bought a esim "sim" card a few weeks ago that operates in all of my more current phones according to its app. It arrived a couple of weeks early from Berlin.  Now if my MVNOs would get moving and support more than iPhones and rarely Pixels so I can test this thing. https://esim.me The only item really troubling so far is reviews in google play store keep getting deleted, even 5 star ones.
