As a crow flies, I live 2.6 miles from a live, completed LTE tower as indicated on the completed LTE maps on here. I will not receive my nexus until Friday, so I have been unable to test thusfar. Does anyone know if I will be able to reach this tower being almost 3 miles away?

It depends on your elevation relative to the tower, the foliage in between, what kind of structure and windows you have in your home, etc. However, you likely will get a LTE signal 3 miles away. But the problem you will more likely encounter that will prevent you from connecting is this: http://s4gru.com/index.php?/blog/1/entry-167-sprint-intentionally-blocking-new-lte-devices-from-accessing-live-lte-sites/

Also, it depends on if this is the tower you currently connect to. If your phone is already connecting to this tower normally from 3 miles away, it should also be able to connect to LTE when it becomes active because 1X, EV, and LTE will all run on the 1900MHz band so you should be golden.

Where is this "deploy list" that you guys see? How do you know when an LTE tower is going up?

 

Since you are a sponsor, go to the Interactive S4GRU Maps forum and click on the NV sites complete thread. From there you can see the maps of active NV towers up with a legend on the bottom of whether they have 3G or 4G up.

Thanks. I understand you can view the interactive maps there, but I was under the impression there is a list somewhere of future towers/deployments? I don't really understand the interactive maps with the whole "3g", "3g/4g", "3g only", "3g and 4g"...

 

"3g means that 3g may be complete, but 4g may also." "4g means that 4g may be complete, but 3g may also." Sorry, I just don't understand what this means, lol.

In the premier sponsors forum there are maps with construction dates for each tower in 10 or so markets that are being worked on now/soon. Robert likely can better explain what the other map means but I will try. The map represents information regarding which towers are active with what. If the Tower says 3g than information says 3g is up but not 4g yet and vis versa "may" is used for all because Robert is likely limited on time to visit each site to confirm personally each site. His information is reliable however and many of the sites have otherwise been confirmed by others. So if you do find a site working make sure to tell everyone in the forum

20mb down... 9 1/2 mob upload ... Athens.

 

Wait what? :twitch:

 

I am so jealous of you right now. I have visited 4 sites so far in the southern part of atlanta and have yet to get an lte signal.

Im amazed at those speeds given such a weak signal (-107dBm). If this is what we have to look forward to, it will be epic.

 

That is really good for having that low of a signal

Now these are believable screen shots because the upload speeds are realistic. Some of the speedtests out there of Sprint LTE have upload speeds that exceed even the best lab/FIT speeds, which make them suspect. Thanks DanielHolt for the info. Very exciting.

    • I see it as more of an economic calculation.  Basically go after the areas where they have the best odds of retaining or attracting customers versus their MVNO arrangements. The quicker they can switch back and forth between 5g and MVNOs the finer grained this decision zone can be.  Field results will beat theory.  In Sprint days this was up to 15 minutes in theory. In practice AT&T could be quite sticky.  I remember driving by 3 Sprint sites while still stuck on AT&T roaming. Dish will need to do better to thrive. Both their MVNO arrangements reportedly now cost them about $1.50 per GB. With volume that may fall to $1.
    • Man I wish I could get on their beta right now.  Looks like I'll have to wait until Dec or so.  The report is not surprising really.  Largely only have employees roaming around running tests and what not.  I am sure lots of testing is needed to iron out bugs, fix things.  Though a lot of it might be denser network.  Only so much you can do and money is spread out very thin when you have such a large target to hit. 
    • Found some AT&T c band live in Cincinnati today. Not too bad considering I was driving past on the interstate at speed.  
    • Hey Mike, a couple other things you might be able to post for S22Ultra owners, In particular, these deal with the *#0011# menu. The following are true for even the June update:   1. Does not show the second n41 carrier (when it is connected) on LTE+NSA. It shows "NR_NumCC:2" but no additional Carrier. It simply states "CA-Not Config 0 0"This works fine on the S21.  2. There is a line that states "Code Review Required" 3. There is a line that states "Unknown 0"    
    • The see Dish as the Beta network for a while. Basically once they have secured their licenses and have inexpensive phones that utilize all their bands I hope to see them reduce the edge space of their network or improve the transfer performance so customers have more of an invisible handoff experience. This will likely be late 2023.
