Sprint 3xCA ?


Recommended Posts

At least the ping times are below 1000ms :P

 

Here in Minnesota we don't have any LTE roaming that I know of. Hopefully we will eventually, because I have a heck of a time getting data to connect on 1x roaming.

Or hopefully sprint expands their network. That would be best.

According to a source of mine, it sounds like Minnesota will be getting a lot of small cell sites in towns that have little to no service currently. I'm really excited to see how things work out with them, because where I live is the only town in a 50 mile radius with somewhat good service.

That could be a sign VOLTE isn't far off. Can't make calls over small cells without VOLTE

This is real.  At least it's really in planning.  The same thing is happening along I-90 in South Dakota and a few other rural places with no service.  And some more iDEN Conversions too.  And a few Clearwire Protection Site conversions.  It will be interesting to watch.

I don't think there is a way tell on that phone. On Sprint branded phones there is service mode

Doesn't work on Pixel either. It shows it LTE-A is available on a given site. But that doesn't mean CA.

You have to have 7.0 and enable it from the settings on cellmapper.

I don't have issues like that with Cell Mapper. The best app right now is Signal Guru for advanced info but it requires root. But it gives​ full CA confirmation.

I emailed CellMapper support and they said they are beta testing CA Mode on Android 7.0+ Devices only. I used to get Pre Beta Releases from them then I got Beta then went back to standard releases.

Ok maybe they removed it because it was on my android 6.1 but was blacked out and now it is gone.

BTW is your phone Rooted?

    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — — The old permit expired for this site without any work being done but a new permit was just approved a few days ago for a T-Mobile site at this address. Description mentions 3 antennas with 2 RRUs per sector. My guess is they're doing something similar to what they did at 360 Furman St in Brooklyn where they broadcast Band 2/66 and n25/41 from one antenna. It's a bit of a downgrade considering the site it's replacing was a full build with Ericsson 6449s. 
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
    • Same with factory unlocked
