CCA/RRPP live date?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone could explain this to me. Inland Cellular is a CCA partner with Sprint and for the six months when I was in their network area, my phone would say "3G Extended" and it would count against my roaming cap. I understand this. This weekend I was in their area again and now it says "3G Sprint". I was out most weekend and I received the text saying I was over my roaming cap. This is very underhanded to say "Sprint" even though I was roaming and it going against the cap. The sprint rep just said check the area. That is fine unless I am on a fringe area, of which we have many around here. Anyone have any other information on this?

Thanks, Doug

I think this is just an error with their system. As you said, up until recently this showed as roaming and not native coverage. It appears the billing/accounting system hasn't caught up to the fact that inland cellular is no longer roaming.

I drove through James Valley Telecom (JVT/NVC) coverage yesterday in Redfield and Aberdeen, SD. Couldn't find any LTE signals on Sprint bands. JVT does have a long 700MHz looking panel on the towers with an RRU that I've never seen before. Looks kind of like a Huawei EBS/BRS RRU. I didn't take a pic, as I didn't bring my DLR.

 

The EVDO speeds were manic. It always felt like I was the only one on it. Between 1.6 and 2.6Mbps. Small towns and even large suburban sectors in Aberdeen. Always appeared as Not Roaming on Sprint. SignalCheck Pro always labeled as James Valley.

Nice speeds for EVDo though the ping could be be better.

It felt pretty snappy. I wonder if I had tried different servers if ping would have been better. I didn't think about it at the time.

Not sure if this means anything regarding CCA/RRPP, but I noticed this week that the current PRL doesn't show C-Spire (1996, north Mississippi) or SI Wireless (4303, northwest Tennessee) SIDs as roaming connections on my Nexus 6.

The real question is, has Sprint's system caught up yet, to not count that to your roaming cap as others have reported?

My account is not showing my usage as roaming. Pure native experience.

Are changes in roaming not applied per account until the start of new billing cycles? Should they be? Could that be the explanation?

Roaming usage typically shows up on my account within 48 hours of the time it was used. I have had a few occurrences where it has taken longer on Commnet. But I don't think it has ever been more than 5 days.

I think he was referring to others having been charged as non-native roaming. It's possible that sprint isn't fixing the newly native coverage until their bills reset.

OK, that makes sense now that you say it.

I was roaming on Inland Cellular (north Idaho) and it did not show up as roaming.  Memorial weekend it was showing within an hour when texting usage.  This is really great for our area as Inland Cellular is the only company with coverage in any of our rural areas.

3G (EVDO) or 1x?

Roaming is not my native language, but yes, bretton88 interpreted me correctly.

 

And to me, it makes sense.  The switch from roaming to pseudo native does not occur until your roaming quota resets with your billing cycle.

That was not the case with me. My billing cycle has not reset yet. Part of the month on Inland

Cellular was roaming and part of the month was native.

Sprint and Inland has some coverage overlap. So you maybe getting Sprint native signal for a while. For example, both have native signal in lewiston.

No, this is not the case. I have been in Juliaetta, Orofino and Winchester and have not received any roaming data. All was native in the middle of the billing cycle.

Do you think that Sprint will update their coverage map to show at least the 3G roaming any time soon? Also will it show as Sprint 3G or Off-Network 3G?

 

There are indeed some 3G roaming on the map. You need to zoom in a lot to see that

    • My s21 has the Sept security update ready for install this morning.
    • Ah, I see.  Thanks for those details! It is great to see some posts on this subject.
    • I was reading the FCC filing for the Pixel 6 yesterday and saw that it included n258 - I was wondering what that was. That will be my next phone so nice to know it will support this new spectrum. 
    • The decommissioning of Sprint sites has started, the optimistic worrying starts about which sites they will keep and convert. Only 2 out of the 3 B41 sectors are on Cellmapper, and 0 B25/26 sectors. I think another site near me also got turned off/decom'd, but I haven't checked it yet. I guess its time to start paying more attention to Sprint sites... Link to street view of the site via Google Maps ,  Link to the site in Cellmapper .

    • Haven't gone anywhere yet, so I can't speak to benefits.  My issue was that I was out on Monday morning and it appears that T-Mobile has turned off several Sprint towers near me.  I was sitting in a parking lot near Landmark Mall on -118 dBm Band 25 because two of the sites I used to connect to there were apparently not running, so data would barely move.  This is in addition to my home site which has been off for several weeks, but that wasn't an issue because I don't use wireless data at home.  But if they're starting to turn off Sprint sites and leave holes, then there's really no alternative. So far, I've only seen T-Mobile, but that makes sense since I've only been home and my home site is gone on Sprint, so the site I had been connecting to was a lot weaker.  I'll have to see when I'm out and about, possibly this weekend. When ROAMAHOME came out, I had that removed and blocked from my account since T-Mobile's network is so lousy, so my lines were not automatically pushed to MULTOCN.  I had to have the block removed and then MULTOCN manually added.  That's probably not typical. - Trip
