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

There are 13 other towers between here and there within the same field of vision (I-17 to Central).  Must be another tower getting lit up.  

 

I'm well aware. I'm also telling you that it's entirely possible to pick it up from an elevated location.

 

The only way to know for sure is to get a screenshot of the LTE engineering screens from both locations and compare the serving cells.

reset your radios 

 I reset radios in and out of airplane mode  rebooted even reflashed radios no go     but thanks.  I have been having ongoing reception issues with my gnex maybe this will be the straw that breaks the back and sprint will replace it for me

Usually the Gnex can pick up LTE decently. It just has issue big time with mapping. So don't map with Sensorly. It is usually the HTC EVO LTE and HTC One folks with issues picking up LTE.

Such a beautiful site.  I drove by the 42nd Ave & Bell location for a closer look.  Good news, it's HERE!   :tu:

Bad news, the signal cut off 1 mile from my house.  :td:

So jealous of the people who live in that apartment complex...

Mine didnt map either but I made it to grand and camelback before lte shit out

 

If you find that Sensorly isn't mapping and you are running a custom ROM then the developer of your ROM changed the carrier settings to something other than Sprint, so Sensorly just throws all of your points away.

Being a ROM developer/maintainer myself I'm just going to say.... that developer is an idiot!

Was at the 43rd ave and bell rd one, awesome speeds, but the signal penetration sucks. Went to the gym on the north west corner of 43rd and lost complete signal of 4G.I also went to frys and lost the signal too. Hope they roll out the 800Mhz 4G soon.

based on previous roll outs in large cities, How long should we reasonably expect the network to be up and running city wide, from this point

 

It's going to be several months. You'll only see a few new sites a week, which means you'll get islands of LTE until the network is further along. The experience will improve week by week, but it will be a process.

Engineering tells us the plan is 27% with in the next three months, looking at when sites are slated to come up in glance, I could see this being a possibility. There should be a multitude of towers coming on in the next 3 weeks

    • 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.
    • *#0011# - This code shows the status information of your GSM network such as registration status, GSM band, etc.;
    • 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.
