Re: tower problems or something

It could be that they have ALLOT of users on them during those times. The rest of the day, people are probably on differnet towers due to being at work. It could also be that other towers are being worked on and that tower is having to take up some of the slack.

Post your Zipcode and nearest corss streets so an Admin can look it up and see what's going on.

Re: tower problems or something

And that shouldn't be a problem where there is too many people on the tower huh? I think that should be fixed

Re: tower problems or something

that would be peak hours of usage. more often than not between say 9am and 6ish pm more people will be using their phones..which is why you see a jump in speeds late at night..not many people on them..currently the only fixes are bandaide fixes until they get the Network Vision upgrades to your area

Re: tower problems or something

The problem is there's a couple different issues that could be at play. For instance, if there is any work going on toward the NV upgrade in your area the tower your seeing could be receiving all the other users in the meantime. As a result, the tower is reaching capcity and will continue to behave as such until the other towers upgrades are completed. Another issue is that the towers in your area could just be old and don't have enough capacity to begin with and when everyone gets home at the end of the day your seeing the outcome. Might not have been an isuse when the tower was first put in but over time it could have developed.

The NV upgrades should address this as well when they occur. However, this is all speculation as I don't have access to the tower information so I am unable to tell personally. But hopefully one of the admins will take your information and check it out.

BTW, if that's your actual address, could you remove it and only post only the nearest cross street for security? Like Ballard Rd & S 21st St.
