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

    • T-Mobile has been building out new rural sites for the last 6-8 months. It may not be as noticeable elsewhere, but we have had 40+ new sites come online in Nebraska. There have been new builds in Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri as well. If you change the site data to display hex values on Cellmapper, look for sites that begin with 05D, or 062 - 063. Those are new sites in the last 6 months.
    • New Vertical Bridge site built for Tmobile near Red River Gorge area.  Maybe T-Mobile is starting to build out new sites and colos in rural areas now...   https://imgur.com/a/Tv3Ge0w
    • I would say it is as "safe" as any typical beta release at this point. There are some things I am still ironing out, but nothing that severely hinders normal usage of the app.
    • Mike, are you still recommending that this beta only be used on on dual psim/esim devices or should it now be basically safe for all devices (with usual beta risks)?
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta is rolling out right now with LOTS of bug fixes.. and some new features. The full changelog is in the app or on the website. In addition to many bugfixes, there are some notable new options: Colorize location display to indicate low accuracy (yellow when Trail Logger is enabled) or outdated timestamp (red). This is enabled by default. Enable/disable display of location coordinates with location accuracy and the location timestamp.. so now each value can be individually enabled/disabled. Configure the maximum age of location data before Location Service is restarted; the default remains at 10 minutes but can now be configured as desired. Limit max number of neighbor cells to display (including 0, if you only want to see the summary line). Some users are seeing LTE or NR data persist after a connection is lost. I made some minor changes, but I wanted to get this release rolled out before continuing to dig deeper into that issue since I made so many other changes that may or may not impact this bug. One thing that users can try is to disable the option under Preferences > Display Settings > Show Hidden Data -- that may resolve the issue. Looking forward to feedback! Thanks..
