    New small cell setup

    I found a new style setup here in Pittsburgh. This is a new LTE record for me (yes when I ran the LTE test I put the iPhone in LTE only Mode and toggled airplane mode to be sure). UWB speeds were great too.

    Iím assuming the LTE test was leaning heavily on CBRS as well. I did attempt to access field test mode on my iPhone 12 Pro but as usual it did not work correctly.

    That's insane! Never seen CBRS go that high before. Too bad you don't have a Samsung to activate service Mode.

    Do the Samsung phones have to be rooted in order to activate service mode.

    3800 block of Bigelow Blvd in front of Schenley Gardens senior living.

    Itís also a little odd because their is another mmWave site only a few hundred feet down the road at the intersection of bigelow and north dithridge street, but that one is a different setup. That one is the same setup you see all over shadyside.

    Also I could be wrong but I donít think I have ever seen a LTE download speed that fast on Verizon before. I know previously I believe my record was in the 300 or 400ís on LTE.

    I even repeated the test a few times to be sure but I was shocked to see an LTE download that fast.

    Itís possible that itís Band 4/66 with LAA and CBRS. Iíve seen this Band Combo off of exitís on I95 in Virginia close to DC. Speed was 500mb or so.

    I have never owned a Samsung phone that's why I asked,most phones that Verizon sells you can't get to service mode.

    You can search for the Google dialer method but only works on Android 10 and below.

    Yeah. Thatís fine.

    I was gonna put it on Reddit too but itís a pain in the *** that you canít post images directly on the Verizon forum without a image hosting service.

    I also wish Field Service Mode actually worked again on the 12 Pro. I did see some links/rumors saying it may be working again on iOS 15. I am really curious as to what all exactly I was connected too band wise. I know Xfinity got 2 CBRS Pals and dish got 1, Verizon got the other 4. To the best of my knowledge I havenít seen anyone else actually deploy CBRS gear in Pittsburgh except Verizon. As others stated I would assume LAA was also involved along with CBRS but I canít confirm that.
