New Years!

Hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year! Any one have any fun plans for tonight? Wish I was going to Disney for their firework show because it's going to be out of this world, but perhaps next year! Might just head to the bar down the street for their new years festivities.

I just was there, it is definitely a very packed. It was challenging for Sprint's network as well. I had a terrible time getting data through during Christmas day and the day after. There is band 41 enabled in the area so that might made a difference. In all fairness my girlfriend's AT&T phone had similar issues with data. Regular calls and texts went through without issues to either of us.

The network held pretty well when I was there in October for the Disney/New Balance XC Classic (my school won our division, so it was pretty cool). Pretty consistent 4-6mbps. But I guess October's kinda the off season. :)

Disney is one of the busiest places on the planet for New Years.

I found the last 6 pack of Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale, and I'm dragging the family out to a friend's loft in Downtown STL from about 7pm until the kids break down (probably around 8:30 :lol: ).

 

Then, thanks to Netflix, we'll do the countdown in the car on the way home.

How did everyone fare the hour or so outage the whole sprint network had for texting at midnight eastern time last night?

I'm pretty sure it was a nationwide outage unless you had an iPhone... Otherwise midnight eastern time texting outbound went down...

On the east coast and mine was fine inbound and outbound. Sent out three groups of 40 texts each just before midnight and received several replies just after midnight. Sending and receiving texts continued for the next two hours. No delays or hiccups on my side.

not here I was on the phone for 5 mins talking to a friend from 12:04am-12:09am and texted after that back and forth with 2 of my friends before I went to bed, and checked my email (and no I was not on wifi, I never use wifi on my phone).  I have Android.

    • It’s a neat and seemingly valid / effective strategy that, at least from my understanding, is only really used by VZW
    • Those are usually left over from the initial AWS deployment, so all run B13/B66 with support for BC0/BC1 (although that’s been shut off on most sites). No NR. Sites with the later Ericsson radios got an OTA update and broadcast B2. On those sites, a B5 OTA update was also available (and tested), but ultimately rolled back. Putting up all that power/spectrum severely degraded the B13 output.  The site atop Crystal Mountain is another story and uses the same setup as the site on the ridge near Neilton. These antennas were selected for their vertical beamwidth. Most modern directional antennas have small vertical beamwidths and would require extreme downtilt to cover the road next to a steep ridge. Thus, they would have a severely limited coverage footprint beyond the road. Omnis can be a better choice in these instances, especially when there’s LoS to the coverage objective (since they’ll generally have lower gain figures). Omnis also don’t run in to the horizontal sector edge problem, which can be difficult to optimize for with directional antennas that have complex or irregular 3D gain profiles. That’s why on a lot of sites on mountains, you’ll see wider antennas used. For example, the Verizon site on Joyce Ridge has three sectors with 80-degree HBW antennas. 
    • Do you know what RAN is behind those Omni's? LTE (bands?) are they pushing any NR through them? Very curious   edit: I guess I could check cellmapper etc but you might know more nuance!
    • N41 here has been expanded from 140Mhz to 180Mhz.  Speeds seem the same so they just need to work on backhaul
    • I noticed today that T-mobile has shut of B41 LTE in the Louisville area and widened the 2nd n41 carrier to 80MHz. That just leaves them with 5x5 B12, 10x10 B2, and two 10x10 B66 carriers on LTE, everything else is in NR (besides their 2G network). They have 20x20 n71, 20x20 n25, 5x5 n25, and 180MHz n41.
