Announcement Text Message Criteria?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what thresholds need to be crossed before you get a message announcing the upgrades for your area?  Is it:

 - a percentage of local sites being worked on?

 - a percentage of local sites having been completed?

 - a percentage of active coverage for a specific service (NV 3G, 4G) in your area?

 - activation of a cluster of 3G sites?

 - any combination of the above scheduled for the immediate future?

 

I got this message today:

If you check LTE coverage for 48362 (Lake Orion, MI) on Sensorly, you will see a lot of coverage, but not of particularly high density.  If you check the sites completed and sites in progress in the area (sponsors), you will see that some sites are done, some are not, but more than half serving this area are either done or in progress.  There is presently no NV 3G here.

In a launched market here even with quite a few NV 3g/4g sites. None of my lines ever received that message.

It seems to be a random marketing thing that happens from time to time. I got a message like that a while back here in Springfield, and they haven't even started work here, so I have no idea how they choose when to send those out.

Do they send them by the area code of location. Or your billing address. See I got an Jacksonville, FL area code but an billing address of an address in Arkansas. I'm wondering if I'm going to be getting this text but 4 the Jacksonville area or for the Little Rock area.

When I received the text it said Green Bay.  I have a Michigan billing address and my area code is 715, while the Green Bay area code is 920.  I really have no clue how it works

I'm in a launched market and also never got one of those messages so I would think it  sent for a specific reason. My service was also fine before and after NV.  I'd speculate that it is either sent in response to high call volume for an area complaining about service or maybe sent to customers whose upgrade eligibility is coming up whom they want to keep as a customer..maybe both...could be sent different times or different reasons.

    • I did double check, but it was doing about 2GB a day at 2.4 GHz and about 3GB a day on 5GHz.  Now it's maybe couple hundred MB a day.  Perhaps it's a slow rollout. To be honest, I haven't tried VoLTE on MB yet.  Sounds like it's time to give it a whirl... BTW. This is all in San Francisco.
    • What we nned to see is a fully converted. market
    • All depends on the terrain/intended coverage area, sector alignment/tilt and antennas used. Wide beam antennas in a 4-sector 90° configuration can actually do a lot of damage to the SNR. Alternatively narrow beam antennas at a 3-sector 120° can leave big coverage holes between sectors. It's a pretty interesting balancing act.
    • I am not enjoying this t-mobile 5G in Astoria Queens or even LTE for that matter. Here is comparison between the 2 today at Astoria park. This area had even faster speeds before Sprint 5G was shut down. T-Mobile really needs to expand the N41 coverage outside of Manhattan asap. Some how Sprint really delayed it fast.

    • I'm still getting 50-90 Mbps (depending on how close I am to it). You might want to double check that it didn't fall to 2.4 GHz. Mine is Ethernet backhauled though.VoLTE has been live for many months on all the femtos. They don't need to cap anything for it to work. In my experience using LTE backhaul on a magic box with VoLTE, it didn't do well at congestion control (was cutting out because the donor was congested), so I'm skeptical that they tunnel VoLTE over a prioritized EUTRA session on relay. So if they aren't doing something as "basic" as this when they completely control the network, they almost certainly won't be doing anything on wifi or Ethernet backhaul to try to give VoLTE special treatment.
