Hi, Ive been noticing late at night time everynight around 11:30PM I loose cell service and the tower is not far from my house (about 1 mile away) and it goes out for about 5 mins. (well everynight I have been around my phone at that time)....  Does anyone else have this issuse? I am not the onlyone that has noticed this in my area.....

Chances are you are correct about the sites being updated.  Usually switch updates are pushed during off peak hours.  Maintenance windows are usually during late night, when there is less load on the sites.

Thats what I was thinking, again I am not totally sure. For me it usually happens around 1AM and lasts about 5 mins max.

I'm not sure on a lot of the new equipment deployed with the Network Vision upgrades, but on the old Lucent Mod 4.0 gear a restart command would take around that time for the radios to fire up again.

Well since the htcguy brought it up, I never really bothered me.  Still doesn't but I always wondered what was going on.... lol.....  The towers in my city are full builds, just no 800 because of the border (darn border!) All new equipment too.

Well my area has had the builds and I'm enjoying some 800, but we are waiting on backhaul...

 

Some day I guess.  When I'm traveling I enjoy the speed of the LTE.

    • Went to Rolling Loud NYC at Citi Field this weekend. Over 60,000 people in attendance. Verizon is a sponsor of the festival this year so naturally they had a ton of COWs set up at the festival. I counted at least 4. As a result, they were virtually the only carrier consistently able to provide a data connection. I didn't see any Verizon 5G, only LTE. T-Mobile on the other hand was a very interesting experience. I was seeing an eNB 331804 which I'm 99% sure is a COW. They also seems to be doing some sort of traffic management because I noticed that if I left my phone idle in my pocket, it would drop down to No Service/SOS or sometimes it would sit on EDGE. But the second that I needed to send a text, make a call, or even use Twitter my phone would switch over to LTE or 5G to complete the task. In an active data session, my phone would constantly flip between Band 2, Band 66, and Band 41. Sometimes, I'd catch myself on the COW and other times I'd get pushed over to eNB 875868, the relatively new Sprint conversion nearby. The network moved at a snails pace though. Where Verizon took about 15 seconds to load Twitter or send a pic, T-Mobile could take up to a minute to complete the same task. Here's some photos of the COWs I spotted. I think that the first two are Verizon and the one in the distance in the third pic is T-Mobile's single COW, not nearly enough for an event that size.

    • You need to have Wi-Fi Calling enabled and also have made at least one phone call over Wi-Fi Calling prior to using the inflight Wi-Fi.
