  • WiWavelength changed the title to nation's Most Reliable Wireless Network currently experiencing multiple outages

Just reminds us that no one is immune to the occasional outage, not even Big Red.  Sometimes I think particularly egotistical people could use an occasional bitch slap (reality check?) as well.  Read: my former boss.

That said, cute graphic.  It did elicit a few hearty chuckles.

Downdetector.com shows relatively few complaints but definitely some issues. Quite small compared to AT&T's reported national issues a few days ago with VoLTE. Sprint's issues with LTE a few months ago fell in between. I also recall T-Mobile having issues a while back.

I have Xfinity mobile and that runs off them. I haven't had any issues.

I think if you are totally dependant on wireless, it might be best to carry two phones that use different networks. This would not only give protection against outages but possibly for service gaps. Cost of the backup phone could be reduced by using a MVNO

 

If money is no object, get a satellite phone. Of course even if you have a satellite phone there are times and places you won't get coverage (deep valleys, too far north/south, no satellite overhead).

 

Let us not forget Wi-Fi calling and femto cells as alternatives for mobile phone service in certain situations.

You guys don't get it's all just a joke based completely on the image? It's not related to something specific in the news.

 

The V and R are burned out. Multiple outages. Get it?

The implication was that the image was posted (even designed)  specifically to poke fun at an actual outage. Seemed to make perfect sense. 

If no outage actually happened, cool. But I think we assumed one actually did. Hence, the image.

I can't believe nobody else got it lol. I saw the title and was like "what?" then saw the sign. There'd have been news everywhere if they had any real outages.

Nope, not "designed," just documented.  That image is an unadulterated photo that I took of a VZW store while I was out and about on Friday night.

That's pretty ironic. Wasn't sure if it was manipulated or not. It only makes it better that it was not.

    • Author kinda doesn't know what they're talking about, as they assumed their speeds were n71-only (it's like they half-read the PCMag article they cite). The speeds they're mentioning are 100% from n71 + n66 SDL, which also explains speeds dropping off a cliff when they walk indoors. In fact, Dish has some paired AWS-3 in Spokane, albeit just 5x5, so I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't bothered deploying that and are just doing 71 + n66 SDL (the former at 5x5). May head down to San Marcos and New Braunfels tonight to do some testing. I expect either n71-only or n71 + SDL, not sure which. n71 is 5x5 here as Dish has leased half of their 10x10 to T-Mobile. When that lease expires they'll be at 10x10, and they could get another 10 MHz FD (albeit not contiguous) from speculators if T-Mobile didn't outbid them. Will be interesting to see who buys what when.
    • The Verge wrote an article on Dish’s network.    https://www.theverge.com/2022/7/1/23188077/dish-wireless-project-genesis-first-week-testing-speeds-coverage
    • I guess that makes sense. I know that ZiplyFiber (my ISP) has had issues with sourcing fiber as well.  Also, that recently upgraded site is interesting. NOt only does it have a strange eNB value, 236960, which  is different from the ones usually around here but also, all of the LTE bands (including B41) are on the same eNB. This is the first time I have seen  T-Mobile do that in this area.  Also found another upgraded site, eNB 84770, by FireStation 26 has been upgraded with B71/n71 (no n41). 
    • Almost the exact same thing happened on my Verizon Galaxy Flip a couple days ago.
