Network vision protection sites?

Recommended Posts

Just curious will there be any nv protection sites caused by 800 smr? Where nextel had coverage where sprint does not? And if so will sprint ever expand its footprint in those areas? Or really anywhere? I know sprint atleast for the next couple years will be overhauling their whole network to try to compete in its existing footprint buti don't care what anyone says roaming just isn't the same as native. Just got a new job just outside sprints coverage and trying to drive and talk is almost impossible sometimes.

If I remember correctly, the fact that iDEN existed in those areas has already satisfied the substantial service requirements for many years to come, despite the fact that Sprint is decommissioning it. In the long long run, sites may be required. (this seems like a question for AJ... paging AJ...)

AJ put up a thread a few weeks ago with a few select areas that might need new sites or "protection" sites due to the PCS G Block where LTE is currently being deployed.  AJ said it was due to the grographical split on the frequency, maybe BEA?

I see I see. Does anyone know how far smr 1x will travel? Nv might screw up my battery life at work if I go from roamin with mobile data off to having fringe signal. I don't know how far in comparison it will travel because is some areas I connect to fringe 1900 but idk how 800 will effect this.

No idea, it goes into the same category of how far does LTE travel question.  There are million different combinations to punch into that calculation.

digi hit the nail on the head, depending on tower height, antenna downtilt, RF interference, physical interference (buildings/hills/trees/signs/etc), sector direction, etc.  That list could go on and on and on.

 

Where I camp, I get a more reliable signal from a tower about 3 miles away vs. a tower 1 mile away due to trees and sector positioning.

"How far does signal A, B, or C travel?" is a question that needs to be banished forever.

What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?

Depends on her age.

      It seems like Sprint is putting LTE in all the states around Ohio and not in Ohio except for the 1 tower in Cleveland.
       
      Anyone heard a reason why it has not started in Ohio

      IBEZ will be solved SOONER, rather than later.
       
      Which is a good thing. I would have liked for SoftBank to join the fight, because EVERYONE knows that their roaming rates are going to be abysmal with Sprint customers traveling to Mexico.
       
      Is this a raw deal? Your thoughts?

      I just want to start a topic just for the Chicago land area deployment. If anyone has any updates on this please post below. I've been having some major issues lately with dropped calls, missing and late texts, and very slow data speeds. I know that it isn't my phone since both my personal and work phones are Sprint and they both have been having similar issues as of late.
       
      Thanks everyone!!

      With the introduction of the new plans Sprint has announced. I told one of my friends about the $60 unlimited plan and she was shocked yet happy about it. She currently has T-Mobile and there has been times where my Sprint service has out performed her service even in the city with puling up information and out of town...well... you already know how that went. She was talking about switching and stuff but then she sent me a typical article bashing Sprint and I got irritated by it and I had to explain to her that Sprint is not bad at all. These articles are based on past experiences from 3+ years ago. I told her I'm pulling 60+ mbps on LTE but she's worried about Sprint being slow ( because of what she read). Guys give me some advice on persuading her to give Sprint a chance. 
       
      I feel like articles that are being posted is what keeps away customers.  It makes no sense that T-Mobiles 2g network is not spoken about when they are in the news for changes to plans and such. But good ol Sprint makes changes and articles that get posted rips Sprint apart for filth.
