I swear some how sprint is getting faster in NYC. First is at my desk at work on 33rd between Park and Madison, second is on 34th and Park.

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

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.

      I know it is a bit early, but since there have been some pretty strong rumors already regarding this device, I figured I'd start a thread for it, just as I did for the LG V20.
       
      I had the LG V20 for a short time last year, and while I anxiously awaited several months for the smartphone, I only had it for a short amount of time after purchasing it when it became available. While I really liked the device for most of its features, one glaring issue I noticed on the few units I tried, was some bad grey uniformity of its LCD screen. Some people didn't notice this issue on theirs, while others did, including me.
       
      That seems to be changing this year though, with the LG V30 heavily rumored to be featuring an OLED screen. As this will be LG manufacturing the OLED screens, rather than Samsung, its quite likely not to be the Pentile variety. The only reason I prefer LCD to OLED, is in my dislike only for the Pentile variety of OLED that has been present on a majority of OLED smartphone displays.
       
      Not having Pentile means I finally will be able to say I prefer OLED to LCD. All except for the image retention and burn-in risks I've been reading may soon become a thing of the past, at least in regards to LG's OLED technology. Personally, despite the investment Samsung has made in AMOLED, I believe there is a possibility Samsung may end up switching to QLED for smartphone displays once they become the emissive-style technology, without the LCD panel involved.
       
      In the meantime, it'll be interesting to pay attention regarding the LG OLED vs Samsung AMOLED feud in smartphones coming up later this year. Oh, and besides the LG V30 showcasing OLED in a single display format, rumors are there will be two OLED displays involved. One for the main screen, and another for the quick launch controls. I'll make another post in this thread with links here soon.

      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.

    • By Febby
      I notice a lot of post regarding the markets in IL,FL,TX,PA,NYC.... but how about about the Los Angeles market? I THINK it was samsung doing the set up for the L.A market? Not sure though.... I'm not a sponsor member of the site so I can't really check... if I had a job I'd most definitely donate!
       
      Couple of months ago the local towers were all down and being upgraded to NV I assume since Larry from Howard forums said there was NV work being done my zip code. The speeds were better for a bit but now they are awful again.
       
      Can anyone (most preferred Robert) make a comment on if there is any LTE activity near 90255 area code?
       
      Thanks, great site by the way... I'm a Lurker.

    • This has dragged out a bit so I want to keep everyone else in the loop.. just about everything is ready for release. However, I discovered a significant bug in a permissions library created by another developer that SignalCheck uses. I am working with that developer to get it fixed before I push out a public update. Without the fix, some of the ongoing issues with Android permissions will continue to persist. -Mike
    • end of the day on B41 my voice quality sux when near RSRP -110 and when on B25 I am able to have a normal call even at RSRP -115 quality. 
    • I have B5 as 17/27/37/47/57/67 (dec) from @Trip but that's the only confirmed B5 data I have received. The 15.. 16.. 18.. 19.. examples do not conflict with anything else I have noted, so all of those might be accurate. Have you definitively confirmed each of those? I can't wait for the day when every device reports EARFCNs.. @david279 mentioned above that Samsungs are reporting on the Oreo 8.1 preview which is huge.   Keep me updated.. I just have to be careful to assume that something deployed in one market is going to hold true elsewhere (i.e. T-Mobile's mess).   NSG is not a good comparison, because they do not use native Android API methods, they communicate directly with the modem using routines not available to anyone else. It results in great data, but for now it's not the type of information within my reach. But I should be able to do anything CellMapper is showing -- could you give more details? SCP should show the same data.   Sure, so GCI like FAxxxxxx / FBxxxxxx? Can you confirm any other details? PLMN 311480 I assume? Nobody has mentioned them. -Mike
    • Blocks are definitely less, but it has happened to me on one of my devices within the last day.
    • I noticed today my S8+ calls are going through LTE eventhough my VoLTE is disabled.
