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.

    • Great job on your analysis of small cells versus the 3.45GHZ and the population coverage requirements. I wonder if the fcc is stalling because they may address the key limitation of of 2.5: the convoluted frequencies. Not sure how they would get there, but it would be better public policy if you could actually use a single license in current times, ie 5, 10 or 20MHz. Of course they could also go in more of a nonprofit or small business direction. But most likely they will keep it as planned given how messy the transition would be. In many/most metro areas BRS/EBS is fully licensed. Would be nice if they put pressure on the squatters.
    • I didn't actually look at the buildout requirements before making that comment - they're definitely going to have to deploy on macro sites if they want to hit the buildout requirements. PEA001 has a population of 25,237,061, of which they will have to hit 45% in 4 years (11,356,677) and 80% in 8 years (20,189,649). If they were to cover the entirely, all five boroughs, of NYC using only small cells (something I'd say is impossible considering their current small cell density), they'd only be covering 32% of the population in the PEA. And this is with spectrum that only adds 300Mb/s per sector and will likely have only 50% the range of their current n41 equipment. Doesn't really seem worth it to me. I'm of the opinion that they're looking to hedge their bets in further EBS/BRS acquisition. 
    • These strand mounts also are deployed with Band 46 (LAA), in my experience. I have yet to encounter a strand mount with exclusively 2/66. 
    • Bought a esim "sim" card a few weeks ago that operates in all of my more current phones according to its app. It arrived a couple of weeks early from Berlin.  Now if my MVNOs would get moving and support more than iPhones and rarely Pixels so I can test this thing. https://esim.me The only item really troubling so far is reviews in google play store keep getting deleted, even 5 star ones.
