Network Vision/LTE - Long Island Market

Recommended Posts

Last night my home tower completely shut down for a few hours. As a result my GS9 was bouncing between 2 or 3 different near my house but only a 1x or 1x800 signal. I think at one point it went to Verizon 1x. since these 1x signal were so weak I wondered what my Essential Phone was connecting to since the RF performance its terrible. To my surprise it was connected to Clearwire B2, which means it was T-Mobile. I was really surprised that T-Mobile roaming was live for these types of situation and for the LI market. I would have though it was a tower by tower basis like T-mobiles roaming with At&t.The essential phone also connected to Clearwire B4. Speeds were around 30 to 50 Mbps so its seem like roaming is not throttled at all. Keep in mind this was am so that's why speeds were that fast.

I noticed yesterday getting gas within the Indian reservation in Mastic that I had a strong signal.  First time ever. usually it is  next to almost nothing. Nice surprise.

    • Something else I forgot to mention, the V40 is enabled for calling plus on LTE and wifi, and it has been working very well so far. I usually keep it disabled for WiFi, since my WiFi is a bit weak in some parts of my house.
    • A little anecdotal note on radio performance. I am currently a location with known poor coverage. We have 3 new phones - iPhone XS, XS Max, and LG V40. The iPhones are having no trouble picking up a usable LTE signal inside, but the V40 only connects to 3G unless I go outside, and the data is barely usable. It is band 26 LTE (800MHz) based on Signal Check on the V40 when I go outside and pick up the LTE signal. Actually now that I think about it, the V40 is probably on 1xrtt inside, not 3G, because Signal Check is showing 800 for both CDMA and LTE.
    • I second the LG V30+. I've had mine for over a year now, and I'm very pleased with the RF performance. I too live in a somewhat rural area, and also travel quite a bit, and I haven't been disappointed at all. RF performance is high on my list of must-haves when shopping for a new phone. The V30+ also makes use of all the current network technologies offered by Sprint, as far as I know. I haven't been able to test out VoLTE yet (not live in my home area), but it's on the compatibility list. I haven't been shopping, but I have seen the V30+ offered at very good prices recently.
    • Yeah it is. East of Sacramento

    • Is this in Cali? The T-Mo roaming is great news, but it would be nice to confirm that USCC roaming is still working on the Pixel devices.
