Dallas Market NV


Recommended Posts

A friend of mine who owns an iPhone 4S and was recently visiting Dallas, TX was around some areas where some towers have already been upgraded to NV and he says he was getting 1.2-2 Mbps throught the entire day and even in very busy hours. He was shocked. When ever he went back to his hotel that wasn't anywhere near Dallas, he wa getting 0.1 Mbps. He was frustrated but him and I are very excited and can't wait for network vision to be fully implented here in NYC.


He was sorry he couldn't get any pics of towers and since he's not from Dallas, he doesn't exactly remember what streets he was on since he had a friend drive him around everywhere but I just thought I should share this with you all.

I read a post where Robert said there are some sites live here in NYC. He told me he was working on an article for NYC so I can't wait to see where those sites are and run some tests.


Sprint recently did some capacity upgrades in my zip code of 11432 and before the upgrade, I was getting between .20 - .30 Mbps down and around the same for uploads. With the upgrades, I've been getting .90 - 1.06 Mbps down and about .50 Mbps up. I can definitely work with that and even watch videos but I would love to have the speeds Dallas is getting.


I also have the 4S and before the upgrades, I would constantly lose 3G and my iPhone would show an 'o' where the 3G symbol was suppose to be. I contacted sprint and I was told the tower that was literally 5 blocks from me was over loaded and it was going to receive a capacity upgrade and 3 days later voila! Better speeds and have only seeing that 'o' once and that was about 2 weeks ago. Before I was seeing it every day. I mostly use wifi at home but once in a while i'll turn it off to test my 3G and the speeds are still good.


I can't wait for NV to be fully implemented here in NYC.

    • ...and I just this morning realized you meant Cumberland, MD.  It threw me because there's an Ashby in Cumberland County, VA, which I'm far more familiar with. - Trip
    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
