NYC Metro Network Vision update?

Hi

 

I live in NYC and pre-ordered an EVO 4G LTE and was wondering what's the status on Network Vision build out in my area.

 

3G speeds are atrocious and would hate to have this awesome phone hobbled with poor data connection.

 

Thanks!

Is anything on this site official LOL.

I was hoping for some LTE love by the summer since NYC was added to the 1st round market build outs.

 

The information on this site S4GRU.com is not official by Sprint. The only official markets that have been announced by Sprint are: Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Atlanta, Baltimore and Kansas City.

 

However Robert does have internal documents by an inside source from Sprint so it should be pretty reliable. We will find out how reliable the internal documents are when Sprint begins to officially announce more markets. If they fall in line with Robert's info especially for the first round markets, then you should be confident that his Network Vision running list is a good barometer of when cities will be deployed with Network Vision. Based on Robert's info, NYC is scheduled for a late Fall 2012 release so it definitely will not be available by summer time frame. NYC is very difficult to cover because of all the high rise buildings and there still has to be a ton of testing to ensure that in building penetration is there as well as being able to cover the folks on the ground.

How much of a donation does it cost to become a sponsor and have access to the build out maps?

There is no official minimum donation in order to become a sponsor. However let me quote Robert by saying "if you donate just a few bucks, you better have some mean sob story =)". In all seriousness, its whatever you feel comfortable donating. As a sponsor, I can tell you that it is so worth the donation to get access to the Network Vision live tower map as it really shows how much effort Robert has put to bring us the latest and greatest information on Network Vision.

Yeah, it doesn't take much to be a sponsor and its pretty cool seeing the maps that show the sites that have 4G LTE getting upgraded. A few sites already in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens. One near my house in fact.

The Bronx is a totally different country. :P International roaming rates apply. :-)

 

All joking aside, not yet. Then again its only the beginning. Soon enough all of NYC will be covered.

Network Vision is under way in the NYC market. Only 3 sites are verified complete. But many more under way.

This must be a Network Vision tower even though it doesn't show on your maps

I've never seen speeds like that on 3G, where did you run that speed test?

 

*edit*

 

You literally are connected to a tower within visual distance. I wish I had speeds like that here.

There are over 2,500 legacy sites with AAV backhaul now that are capable of speeds over 1.5Mbps. This is not necessarily indicative of Network Vision. However, since most NV sites will have AAV, microwave or fiber backhaul, speeds like this will be much more common at sites where NV has been completed.

 

Was the site you got these 3G speeds from recently much slower? That may help to figure out if these are NV related. Additionally, many sites will be connectable before they are officially marked on-air by Sprint. And there can be up to a one week delay from the time they officially are on-air by Sprint until I get notified. So it is definitely possible to be connected to NV sites before they get posted here at S4GRU.

Not really, I consistently get 1 mbps+ download speeds from the tower I connect to at work..

The only time I ever saw 2 mbps or better was at home with the Airvana.

If i disconnect the Arivana at home I can't even complete a speedtest and the rare occasion that it completes a speed test it's usually around .15mbs down and up.

    • 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.
