    Was my understanding they could and have deployed 1x800 where they could right up to the exclusion zone. There's no B26 due to spectrum not being available as a sideffect of the IBEZ but they have deployed what they could.

    How much spectrum is available? Ventura county has had 1x800 for quite a while, but I've never have seen B26. 

    It would probably have made it through the building at my old company, as it was a concrete tilt up. I got band 41 by my desk, since it was next to a window, but mostly 3g in the interior of the building.

    Ventura county is not in the IBEZ I thought?  I thought the zone begins around long beach / compton and southwards?

    I'm not sure...I've never seen band 26 in Ventura county or for that matter Santa Barbara county.

    Was it due to San Bernadino public safety? 

    The RRU's have always been there though since network vision started, at least at the sites I've been to.

    Entitling is the process where the carrier or tower company requests permission to build or alter an existing telecommunications facility with a local agency. In this instance, they are entitling 800 mhz remote radio units on an existing tower. I'll have to be the source on this one, but if you were to pull building permit records from jurisdictions in SoCal, you would most likely see Sprint submissions. If you were to dig deeper, you will see 800mhz RRUs.

    Thanks for the heads up! In Ventura county, it looks like they started submitting permits in October. 

    Here's a description of one of the permits:

    Install (2) new 800/1900 MHz panel antennas, Install (2) new 800/2500 MHz, Install (4) 800 MHz RRHs and [1] new 2500 MHz RRH's.

  4. For those of you that have an Airave and had a WiFi Connect ordered, have you actually received them? When my replacement Airave 2.5+ came I had to call in to have the square footage increased on the new unit and was again told that it is one or the other on the account. It did not matter that I would be using them in two different locations. Mine was originally ordered but got auto denied by the system after the order was created and approved by the supervisor. I'm wondering what is making it so some accounts are able to have both and others aren't. I was told the non return fee of the router was $85 and is usually higher than the purchase price when it becomes available. I don't mind paying for the device, but they still wouldn't let me order it saying the system says order information coming soon.

    I received mine yesterday...I have an Airave still. 

     

    I still have devices that use the Airave and I even mentioned it to the guy, while ordering the wifi connect. The guy didn't put the order in through his system though, he had to send an email to get it ordered. The system wasn't setup at the time for him to order it.


  5. Currently APPLE products only

     

    Requires iOS 8.3 and update to carrier settings. Carrier settings will update for customers over the course of a few days. Base service plan charges apply.

     

    The rep who answered my call was well informed about Wi-Fi calling ,.. just not the new router

    I think if you're reading that footnote in the press release it was referring to the IPhones needing that version of iOS, not that it's restricted to Apple devices.


  6. I think it'll be sprouting up all over....there are permits that have been approved on sites that already have LTE.

     

    I just saw them working on a site off the 101 in Oxnard, putting up the 2.5Ghz equipment. It was up the other day, but wasn't painted yet to match the monopalm. This morning it looked like they had painted the equipment and put it back up.

  7. Had Band 41, LTE 2500 this morning in Camarillo, at Adolfo and Lewis (not sure if that's the same thing). First time I've seen this on my phone. Only for a minute using signal check pro.

    Yep, I think it's been live for a week or so. I noticed it last week have I was picking up my daughter from school.


  8. Data service is pretty decent for the most part, considering they aren't done with upgrades yet. Remember that some of the light purple on Sensorly was mapped some time go, before a lot of the current sites went live. It takes quite a few mapping passes to get the light purple to turn darker.

     

    I've gotten LTE in way more places than I've ever gotten Wimax. Camarillo itself will be better once that last site gets it's backhaul. Funny enough, it was the first site that was live in Camarillo.

  10. If I upgraded now to a tri band phone, would I have any csfb issues in this area?

    From what I've experienced, you shouldn't.

     

    The only one I've had issues connecting to when LTE went live, was the site by my work. It was fixed within a week. The others that I had checked out, were good to go.
