IBEZ 800MHz Retrofit

Let the B26 deployment begin in SoCal!

I am not quite sure.  According to similar monthly report back in Dec 2015, southern and northern california were already cleared.  Actually the monthly report for Dec 2015 is no different than the one filed on May 2, 2016.

San Diego is horrific. The worst experience on sprint by far. I don't understand why anyone who lives there would choose sprint. But Phoenix has a very serviceable network and one that could easily be a number one in the valley.

I was in San Diego the past 4 weeks for work and Sprint was acceptable.  Service at the airport was actually the worst part of it - but I had no issues other than that.  I was doing work near the baseball park, and stayed at the Hilton Bayfront and the Hilton Mission Valley.  No issues in either of those two areas.  I'm sure B26 would be a welcome addition, but the network was usable.

I've noticed sprint to be pretty bad in most airports (at least compared to AT&T on which I rarely see anything other than 5 bars on LTE at airports). Just my experience.

They only airport I've seen Sprint blow away competition is O'Hare... regularly over 100 down.

This page refers only to *NON-BORDER* regions. So places like San Diego and southern LA are not included. I do not believe the spectrum has been cleared yet.

 

However, it may indicate that San Bernardino is good to go, which would be good news for Las Vegas. I cannot confirm that though, so don't get too excited just yet.

 

So is Arizona good to go !

I am not sure what this means for Arizona. I have not seen any updates on that front recently.

I figured something didn't sound right. I live in lake Elsinore which I think is part of San Bernadino or riverside county. Riverside is next to Bernadino so does that mean if this is true lake Elsinore may make the cut ???

I would assume so...

I hope bro, now what about Orange County ? Or is that considered southern LA?

Robert mentioned in another thread that this same data has been posted before... when we know that San Bernardino was not clear. So it's possible this means nothing at all for the affected areas.

 

I included OC in southern LA ( though they are separate markets)

Gotcha. Which other thread was it ? I only posted in this one since it pertains to it specially

O'Hare is good, all served by nearby B41 macros. SFO is also pretty good, B41 in a ring of sites surrounding the airport and fast B25/B26 on their internal DAS. The DAS came online a few months before the Superbowl.

Hopefully soon for San Diego. A lot of areas and indoors are often only 3G or 1x. Still waiting for those small cells and micro sites to show up while we wait for 800 MHz.

 

 

Exactly. It's crazy it's taken so long. At this point I'm praying for everything to be cleared by 2018 lol

It just seems like SoCal is never gonna get green lighted to launch 800 MHz LTE.

I was hoping before I die and I'm 35 now. I heard something about 3X3 instead of 5X5 getting launched but not sure where or if that's even true.

Yeah I read that it could be a possibility but at this point we have no idea how much 800 MHz spectrum has been cleared to launch anything.  It seems like what is holding the effort is Mexico needs to reband first in order for SB county public safety to start to reband.  Ultimately we need SB county to reband entirely before LA/OC county can start to deploy 800 MHz LTE. So that tells me that there is no way that even 3x3 MHz has been cleared to even deploy 3x3 LTE in San Diego.

Totally agree man. Yes SoCal badly needs B26 LTE as well as BC10 CDMA.  I know some areas have BC10 CDMA but its just rare and totally random when you connect to 1x800.  Tmobile probably has better indoor/outdoor coverage now in SoCal since they have been actively deploying B12 LTE all over LA/OC counties.

They for sure do...sadly, at this rate, the 600mhz spectrum might be clear for use before SMR. Lol

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
