Those uploads! Could it mean that Sprint finally switch their download:upload ratio in NYC?

I thought that when I took the first Speedtest. They were different days so the 60mbps one was first even though the time was later. Thats from a Clear site. But once I took the 2nd one today and the upload was over 8Mbps I thought maybe they haven't switched the ratio yet. That one is from a MM site. Unless upload CA is in effect and my V20 supports itl

I saw a old forum from the past that shows Sprint can do 10x10 B25 in NYC. So they have areas where it's possible yet have not done it. Yet away.

Sprint has already deployed 2xCA on B25..

Good but I was talking about it being possible for one of the carriers to be 10x10 instead of 5x5.

That has been possible since B25 CA’s initial release...

Speeds have slowed down a lot in Sheapsheadbay area / Kings highway  Brooklyn.  (0.50kb/s...)

Not sure whats going on. What really pisses me off is the terrible service I get while on above ground subway.

I take the N or Q to Manhattan and its slow and cant watch much videos.

T mobile was great when I did the test drive awhile back on the above ground subway.

I think I will switch soon once my contract is up,  Sprint is better now but its so damn inconsistent.

What I can tell you is that a bunch of markets are already broadcasting Config 2, and check out massive speeds even without 4x4 MIMO..

I would like to see some more progress in the more residential areas of New York City boroughs. Seems things have kind of taken a slow progression. Haven't been able to report any new activity out this way.

Wait..these speeds are actually being realized currently in real world use? That's insane!

Where are these speeds and who is taking the tests? Need more evidence....

Yup! Config 2+3XCA using GS8 in greenwood Indiana..

This was taken 5am, unloaded tower.

During the day speeds hover between 200-260mbs

I have engineering screens and multiple speed test. Config 2 max speeds are 336mb (112.5x3)

Hopefully the  improvements in Long Island and I have a feeling the same is happening in North NJ as well as most of the network, will allow Sprint to dominate the root metric report for NYC.

 

I only recently realize how much more spectrum Sprint as than its competition. I tested out a Verizon sim and they only have 10x10 B17, 15x15 B2, and 20x20 B4. I honestly thought they have 20x20 for each band in NYC. Speeds on each band individually never  reach over 10mbps. They only have 10 mhz more than T-Mobile; 5mhz more in the low band and 5 in the mid band for the smaller amount of customers this gives t-mobile a great advantage. But Sprint has a even greater advantage with even less customers and even more Spectrum. 75 x 75 if you combine is all but realistically it's 60 x 60 with 3xCA. When it comes to 3xCA Sprint has the most aggregated spectrum of any network.

The funny thing is that in the west and northern Bronx, Sprint has yet to deploy the 3rd carrier,  from what I hear, they do not seem to have 60Mhz of contiguous band 41.  

They might have to wait until they finally deploy non contiguous CA. <_<

Where are you coming up with 60x60? If you're talking about B41, remember it is not paired spectrum. The UL and DL is on the same channel, so it's 20+20+20 on 3xCA. Simply 60MHz, not 60x60.

Yes I'm aware of that. Just trying to make a comparison. For the download link its a very close comparison

VZW uses B13 not 17 which can't go any higher than 10x10. They can reframe to add B5, VZW also bought B66 there.

Correct. And Verizon has deployed 20x20 B2 and B4 across the entire NYC metro area. Only EVDO/1x left is on B5.

My rooted Nexus 6 only shows 15x15 on B2 on Long Island and in Manhattan

      hello everyone i m starting a thread for sprint network predictions for 2018. i am wishing sprint and s4gru a happy holidays and new years. 
       
      regards Daniel

      Hello all,

      I have been visiting S4GRU for quite some time, and one of the most common issues I see popping up is confusion from users--especially when they first get 4G LTE devices and/or LTE service--regarding their signal strengths. For some reason, the signal bars on many devices do not display what most users expect them to display. It seems strange that we have to enter special dialer codes just to see what our LTE signal is!

      With that in mind, I started creating an Android app from scratch. I had never created an app before, so it took a few months before it was ready for the public, but its time has come. Robert and a few others have been beta testing it for me since October, and I recently released it onto Google Play. Robert gave me the go-ahead to give it a mention here on S4GRU, so here goes..

      It's called SignalCheck, and it is available on Google Play here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Blue+Line+Computing
       
      The "Lite" version is free; the "Pro" version has a small one-time fee but includes a bunch of extras, including signal bars in the notification area, a widget, the ability to alert a user when they pick up an LTE or 800 SMR signal, one-button instant connection reset, the street address of the connected 1X site, and menu shortcuts to some screens that are usually only accessible with dialer codes. I intend to offer S4GRU Premier Sponsors special benefits in the near future, as soon as I figure out a feasible way to do that.

      This is the first app I have ever developed, so I'd appreciate any and all feedback, both positive and negative. I have been trying to educate myself as much as possible regarding cellular technologies, as I didn't know much before I started this project. My goal is to make this app as accurate and useful as possible for all the "nerds" on here.. myself included!

      I intend to continue squashing bugs as they are reported, and adding features as they are requested. As I learn more about Android programming and cellular technology, I'll improve things. Please let me know what you would like to see, and I'll do what I can.
       
      My "Beta Crew" helps test out the app before public updates are pushed out. Membership is by invite only but anyone is welcome to join in our discussions or get a sneak peek at what is going on (see thread here).

      Here are some screen shots from a previous version.. there have been tweaks since this release, but this is basically what you get:

      The 850 MHz LTE Sprint network is so congested in De Soto MO. I also have proof on my SDR Radio.
       My SDR Radio can only show 1.920 MHz of the 5 MHz wide LTE Signal.
