Has Anyone Noticed Improvements Yet?

In my house my signal strenth is usually 3 bars (-86ish dB), but this afternoon, I was messing with my phone, and all day it was full service and -65 dB. However, I had absolutely no data connection. This lasted about 2 or 3 hours. Now, I have data and signal is back to -86 dB. If they were doing tests with Network Vision's 1x-A @ 800mhz, that would certainly explain my jump in signal all afternoon. Are they doing Network Vision upgrades here (PHX)? I recall in AndroidForums, a member reported something simmilar in Dallas.. he called Sprint, they sent him an AirAve for free... and said they were doing network upgrades in his area. About 3 days later.. They announced Network Vision deployment is underway in Dallas. So, All made sense. So, Here, In Phoenix, am I experiencing the same thing... or is this wishful thinking? Thanks for you thoughts and opinions.

Although Phoenix has not been formally announced, that doesn't mean that Network Vision has not commenced there. Chicago wasn't one of the cities announced, but I have confirmed three times over that Samsung has already gotten underway there.

 

I really feel in my gut that Phoenix is going to be one of the early cities. I would be cautiously optimistic that something is up based on your observations today. Possible testing of 800 1xA carriers is a possibility. I hope it is indeed the case.

 

Keep us posted! ;)

Phoenix seems to be the one of the hot beds for testing, both with Sprint and Clearwire. At the minimum I would think that back haul improvements are taking effect since that's the first step for NV. Perhaps we'll get more info during Sprints 4th Qtr report in a few weeks.

I was seeing drastically improved 3G speeds in St. Cloud MN, but then it went back to as slow as it ever was. I don't know what it was all about.

I think we all will see a sort of see/saw effect with coverage depending on your area and what part of NV is being worked on. Some towers will be up and others down as back haul and tower configurations are made. This is why I've commented that things intermittent with speed & coverage until NV is complete in your area. We just have to hunker down and wait it out, although you hear a lot of others saying this is the last straw and are porting over to other carriers.

    • T-Mobile once again showing that their macro density is a force to be reckoned with. I found a keep site in Brooklyn that's on the same block as an existing T-Mobile site. They're <500ft from each other but the sectors face away from each other to minimize interference. T-Mobile eNB 875364 (40.63328556538357, -74.02370674293812)
    • I see it as more of an economic calculation.  Basically go after the areas where they have the best odds of retaining or attracting customers versus their MVNO arrangements. The quicker they can switch back and forth between 5g and MVNOs the finer grained this decision zone can be.  Field results will beat theory.  In Sprint days this was up to 15 minutes in theory. In practice AT&T could be quite sticky.  I remember driving by 3 Sprint sites while still stuck on AT&T roaming. Dish will need to do better to thrive. Both their MVNO arrangements reportedly now cost them about $1.50 per GB. With volume that may fall to $1.
    • Man I wish I could get on their beta right now.  Looks like I'll have to wait until Dec or so.  The report is not surprising really.  Largely only have employees roaming around running tests and what not.  I am sure lots of testing is needed to iron out bugs, fix things.  Though a lot of it might be denser network.  Only so much you can do and money is spread out very thin when you have such a large target to hit. 
    • Found some AT&T c band live in Cincinnati today. Not too bad considering I was driving past on the interstate at speed.  
    • Hey Mike, a couple other things you might be able to post for S22Ultra owners, In particular, these deal with the *#0011# menu. The following are true for even the June update:   1. Does not show the second n41 carrier (when it is connected) on LTE+NSA. It shows "NR_NumCC:2" but no additional Carrier. It simply states "CA-Not Config 0 0"This works fine on the S21.  2. There is a line that states "Code Review Required" 3. There is a line that states "Unknown 0"
