Network Drops Calls- Interstate 12 from Baton Rouge to Slidell

Network Drops Calls- Interstate 12 from Baton Rouge to Slidell

I experienced five dropped calls today while traveling back and forth from BTR to Slidell and returning back to BTR. What's up?

Re: Network Drops Calls- Interstate 12 from Baton Rouge to Slidell

I bet I can tell you where you dropped the calls at    The biggest one will be halfway between Hammond and Mandeville (right when you get into the area where all the trees are in the middle of the interstate).  The other one is on the other side of the Hammond.  Basically you are handing off between the two systems and the gap between them is too large.  They used to be totally separate systems with different NID/SID combinations on different channels, now they have merged them somewhat and need a tower in the gaps.  But I wouldn't expect that to happen any time soon.

Be nice if they would make use of some of those IDEN only towers to add CDMA for all of you in LA.
