Network Vision/LTE - Phoenix Market (including Flagstaff, Prescott)


Recommended Posts

Getting LTE on the 101 north from the I-10 on the west valley! So far it's lasting from on ramp from the 10 and I'm passing Glendale now with a decent connection still! Whoo hoo, West Valley!

I noticed that yesterday when I was driving into town.

 

I'm also getting g 4g at St. JOSEPH hospital outside only, not indoors anywhere.

Free Sprint WiFi at Sky Harbor. Band 41 working as well at the Southwest terminal. Overall a great experience.     Sent from my iPhone 6s Plus using Tapatalk

LTE turned on somewhere this morning over here by Arrowhead Mall. I'm sitting at my desk in my hotel room working on the update when my LTE notification chime rang at 7:10 AM. SignalCheck Pro FTW!

I work in City Planning for a Phoenix metro municipality. Within the last month, Sprint contractors have brought in preliminary plans for a couple sites in the West Valley. It's a very slow trickle

That's me running those sensorly tests up in the Tatum Ranch (Cave Creek and Tatum) area.  I just about crapped my pants when I saw the 4G Lte pop up on my  s4.  It seems like I've been waiting a lifetime for 4G to come to sprint.  I know the phx metro area is spotty, but I'm ecstatic that it's finally here.  Good work Sprint!  I take back all the bad things I've said about you!  ;)

I was wondering if anyone knows what is going on in South Tempe.  In the running update map, there are a few towers that have been "in progress" for as long as I can remember.  Any ideas why?  Is something really substantial happening? Did they start and not be able to finish? Documentation Errors?

for a while in the phoenix market robert was marking the sites that got permits as "in progress" i think he stopped doing that a while ago.. and went back to focusing on just the sites were completed.. those two sites still havent been updated... i looked at the permits to see if any work was done a month or so ago and they still show permitted but no work... that may have changed since but thats why you see it as in progress...  

 

i would recommend going to http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/2877-new-building-permits-for-phoenix-upgrades/ topdownat4 does an excellent job updating that map... usually within an hour after 

 

but if you go to this thread you will see the sites that have gotten permits since robert stopped including them on the complete thread... there are alot of permitted sites that still need upgrades... that with the exception of those two white sites on roberts map, are not included on that map...

I was at Arrowhead last night and had zero lte. Today a whole bunch more showed up on Sensorly. Maybe we have to join a double secret club to get 4g at Arrowhead. ;) 

Then again my wife has a snippet around the corner from our house in a different area and later in the day it was gone again no trace.

For the last few days I'm now getting 4G in my home area.  They had been upgrading the tower on the west side of Sarival Road a couple hundred yards north of Peoria Ave.  Workers on the tower had told me it was for an upgrade for AT&T and Sprint.  Must have finally flipped the switch!

I mapped all that.  Note 2 has great LTE reception.  I added a ton of mapping the two days I was on the north side of Peoria/Glendale and over in Sun City.

I was getting 4-30Mbps, depending on how strong the signal was.

Your presence those two days must have lowered the median age by 0.01 percent.

 

Did you see any white/blue hairs driving around town in golf carts?

 

;)

I had seen coverage showing up there so when we had supper the night before at Arrowhead and your new mapping I looked and nothing. Must have turned it back on for you. ;)  Same thing near our house in another location. Get a snippet of 4g now and then and after that nothing.

i will buy a new lte phone when they put install a system around 7th st and northern.  i did not see any new towers scheduled to be installed in this area so I'm not holding my breath.

Why do you need it that exact spot? You would rather have 3g only everywhere else?

    • Columbus Sprint conversion site to T-Mobile update: tower hands arrived before sunset and unloaded. Said Sprint stuff will be demoed first, but Microwave and b25 will remain. Will only be adding AWS. Said no n41, 600 or 700.  So I took pictures of antennas but not a big pile under tarp. Personally think they are not allowed to admit and 5g equipment. Lots of wackos out there. Checking on the visible antennas, there are three Nokia VBNAEHC-01, which are AirScale MAA 64T64R 192AE B41 320W AEHC (AAEHC) capable of 5g.  There will also be larger racks with plenty of room for them to stand on.

    • Rather than upgrade all my lines from Magenta to Max I stayed on Magenta 2.0 and when I need UHD or more HotSpot I just add the $15/mo GoMax AddOn when I need it and remove it when I'm done. That costs me $15 for the month. Rather than taking the $30/mo hit permanently to upgrade the entire account (7 Lines/3 Paid). Since I'm paying for all the lines I don't care if any of the other ones have UHD etc. 🙃
    • Pretty incredible. Of course, I wonder what percentage of Magenta Max Plan users forget to activate (or don't activate) UHD streaming on their devices.
    • I couldn't stay away for long, gonna return the iPhone I told myself I wouldn't do this but iPhone just doesn't work for me, tried giving it a weekend but being back on my Ultra feels natural iPhone is slow and laggy lol oh well.
