Network Vision/LTE - Boston Market (all of Massachusetts)


brendan4t

Recommended Posts

As I live about twenty minutes from Boston, I venture to boston once a while, as bordering Lowell, I sometimes get 4g WiMax if I go near the border of Lowell/Tewksbury.... As there is a cell phone tower next to my house i'd be hoping it could get LTE, which is highly unlikely. I'm just curious when Boston area will get their upgrade... I understand its in the first roll-out stage, im just curious about the date

 

P.S

 

Boston has WiMax if some may not know.

Ah, good old Tewksbury... I find it strange that there seem to be no active NV sites in the more populated areas right around Boston. I live in Watertown myself (just west of Cambridge), and see no towers near me at all :/

Awesome - that is great news! I know exactly where that is (conveniently equadistant from my girlfriend's place and mine). I don't see that tower marked on the map linked above. Can you let me know where you got your info?

I believe there is no 4g until June for Boston market.

I live in Boston and have never been to a Boston Market (never even seen one in Boston).

 

The irony, heh.

 

 

Any idea when Sprint plans to light up 185 Cambridge St, 02114 with LTE? It's co-located with clearwire. I wonder what type of backhaul that location has... the latency over 3G is awesome (I can ping into the high 50's :)). I always can hit over 2mbit+ morning/noon/night. It's a very fast Sprint site. Verizon sits right above it (I've posted pictures).

So today is the 18th... I wonder if there is any active LTE in Boston yet :)

If i'm correct, they will have the same speeds as AT&T's LTE (Up to 60 MBPS).... and not Verizons ( Up to 30MBPS?)

No. Both Verizon and AT&T did 10x10MHz deployments in Boston. AT&T did lower 700MHz, Verizon did upper 700MHz.

 

Sprint's deployment is a lot different (half the spectrum but less than half as many customers, so same average speed).

 

All should have roughly the same average speed though.

 

I wouldn't get caught up with max speeds - what is 30mbit or 60mbit of wireless speeds going to do for you that 20mbit (or 10mbit) can't?

I know you won't notice the difference :P... I've been told that Verizon had slower LTE speeds, it must be because they have more customers.

 

Verizon has had LTE rolled out a lot longer than AT&T, so they just simply have more users on their LTE network. As time goes on, AT&T will slow down as well.

 

Verizon has a pretty solid plan to add additional capacity down the road to help maintain network performance. AT&T currently doesn't.

 

In the long-haul Verizon and Sprint are well positioned to serve booming data demand. AT&T isn't.

    • Well.. my power flickered this evening and kicked my cell spot offline. I noticed that my phone still had service, then the 5G UC showed up on my screen. Honestly thought it was just a hang up from the loss and it was not displaying properly... but then I did a speed test and got 250meg down and 30 Meg upload.... apparently they've added n71 here in the past week and I just found it.  For the first time in 10+ years I don't need a box to give my service at home!! Like a kid with a new toy now...yay!  
    • Sounds like a "well you might as well just buy the company" statement
    • Bloosurf is petitioning to deny T-Mobile's request for an STA specifically in their service area. https://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsEntry/attachments/attachmentViewRD.jsp;ATTACHMENTS=Ghl9knTSFp8J4nVm1P9qL4541XR1gy58whH7Yyz0MwGs037gQrNV!-2042069078!-79842837?applType=search&fileKey=1297203795&attachmentKey=21718533&attachmentInd=applAttach Short read but pretty much they're saying that T-Mobile's operations in the BRS/EBS band has been interfering with Bloosurf's LTE-based WISP network and that this has caused them harm (lose customers, etc.) They claim that allowing T-Mobile access to all of the spectrum they bought in or near Bloosurf's service area would cause even more interference. To be fair they aren't wrong. They mention that in 2021 the FCC investigated and determined that T-Mobile was operating outside of its licensed spectrum band there. However, I get the sense that Bloosurf is just trying to stop a competitor from operating in their service area. Typically carriers work this kind of stuff out among each other. Here in NYC, 3/4ths of Brooklyn has 140MHz of n41 deployed and the southern 1/4th of it has 80MHz deployed thanks to an incumbent that leases the spectrum from the archdiocese. In spite of that there are no complaints of interference from NextWave in such a dense environment. Seems to me like Bloosurf just doesn't want to coordinate with T-Mobile and would rather complain to delay the deployment of spectrum for as long as possible. EDIT: It's not just their service area, it's a larger area surrounding their service area as well. Something's fishy about this request. 
    • Really cool blog post from OpenSignal giving a broad overview over the mobile network experience in NYC.  https://www.opensignal.com/2023/03/30/localized-analysis-reveals-huge-network-experience-gaps-between-mobile-users-in-the-us
    • Bit too early to tell imo. It's good news if Dish can stop the hemorrhaging. Q3/Q4 2022 they were able to stop the hemorrhaging. Their previous 6 quarters they lost between 160k and 350k subs each. Their next report will be interesting to see how they were impacted subscriber wise due to the hack.
