My coverage sucks, I have no 4G, I'm at the corner of Scottsdale Road and Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd. All there is is horrible 3G speeds. Text messages can take up to our ER an hour to get delivered to who I am sending them too.

So I got the app. What is the BSL address? Is that the tower or where the network thinks I am

Anyone have any updates on our 800mhz via IBEZ zoning?

Sorry if I'm getting terms mixed, what I mean is when I see signal check pro telling me I'm connected on CDMA 800, I get very slow data speeds.

 

Can the phone not use 800 for voice and 1900 for data at the same time?

 

Yes... that's typically how it works. If you are connected to 1x800, that is what is being used for voice. If you have an EVDO connection, you are connected on 1900. Being connected to 1x800 does not have any impact on your speeds.

I see it occasionally at work, but only when I'm a couple hundred yards from the tower

Does that mean there's two B25 carriers on that site? 10x10mhz?

Two carriers.

So no 70mbps peak speeds, just additional capacity?

That's very good, I'm hoping to see some of that in my market.  :tu:

No to the speeds. You are not likely to see a 10x10 PCS carrier anywhere on Sprint. 

 

The second carrier still doubles the capacity of the site though (assuming it doesn't already have B41). So even though peak speeds are still around 37Mbps, the net effect is the same. More speed and capacity for everyone!

    • Darn that stinks. I just got mine setup using the LTE backhaul and i'm getting pretty decent service.  Still can't use it to make a call no VOLTE however it is nice to be able to use the LTE for my phones and spare the WIFI for other devices.  
    • After seeing this comment, I tried a couple of things and viola, it works. Unfortunately I still wasn't successful connecting to the network. It was a bit tricky with the pi because it has a hard time initializing the modem after a reboot if I don't cycle the power on the modem too, of course that's resetting the IMEI. Working quickly I was able to get it all synced up, but still kept getting the Call failed/Out of Call errors in the logs. If it would have worked I would have worked harder to figure out a way to pass the AT command prior to bringing up the network. I did verify the IMEI with AT commands and uqmi as well. I have all the connections I need, but I am unable to find the thicker 1.13mm coax pigtails. LTEfix doesn't seem to have them either   I ordered a ZBT WG3526 since it seems pretty well supported, and based on your comments I am going to get a beefier power supply for it as well. On a separate note: I figured out a couple of things about the Askey router, not that it matters much those little MHF4 looking connectors on the antenna traces look like test points. When you use the proper cable it acts like a switch and disables the antenna while taking measurements. MHF-SW23 Also there is a serial port nearby the sim slot that is marked Tx, Rx, Gnd on the flip side of the board. I was able to watch the board boot by hooking up an arduino like a jerry-rigged ttl cable, no shell though. I saved the output if anyone cares.
    • I know that, they would have to reconfigure band 5 to include SMR.
    • SMR doesn't cover B5, so those carriers would have to do B26 Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • I've come across a number of Crown Castle oDAS nodes (small cells) on T-Mobile. I think a bunch used to belong to MetroPCS. I found 3 in my own neighborhood and one in Williamsburg. The ones on my neighborhood all share the same the same eNB ID which makes it annoying to track on Cellmapper since it's 3 separate "sites" but only one marker.
