That’s really interesting, you’d think the evening is when it’d get busier. 

That's what I thought too, but the lunch hour here is so hard on all of the networks since its a busy area for office/industrial lunch breaks.

That’s really interesting. I live near Louisiana and Vivian/San Antonio and when I had Sprint back in Feb, I rarely got speeds higher than maybe 3 Mbs.

Just as an update from a few minutes ago, San Antonio and Louisiana, 26 down, 6 up. 

San Antonio and Wyoming, 57 down, 5 up.

Wow. Thanks for the help man! This is a HUGE improvement from back in the day. I think I’ll be jumping into the free year of service

Anyone else notice that Speedtest.net now prioritizes Sprint servers in PHO and LA? I've never been on a Sprint server while testing here in Albuquerque before!

I've noticed this too. My guess is that they want to test their equipment see the results on their end and not on a random server making it look like they are super slow.

Since February band 25 CA has been rolled out so I can verify that is what I get and I live at Louisiana and Luella Anne.

Also the Magic Box at my house has really helped.

That’s awesome, what’s the range of those magic boxes? Is it just the couple of houses near you, or is it more of a larger radius?

I remember eating inside at Taco Bell one time and bring connected to a magic box from a store down the street.

Thats’ really interesting... i wonder if that box’s signal goes all the way to my house or not. Probably not.. i’m guessing  I’m about  1/4 of a mile from that intersection.

I haven’t tried. I’ll walk test it the next night as I walk the neighborhood looking at lights. Plus that guy on Luella and Louisiana is legit.

In my experience, it might make it into your neighbor's yard, but likely not indoors (at least not very well). I guess it also depends on how close they are and how strong the macro is. A stronger macro, even congested B26, is preferred when the MB signal gets weak (
For houses, it's basically one per household for proper coverage, but you can easily cover a couple units in an apartment building. Sprint is giving them out pretty freely right now.

Looks like Sprint is doing some B41 at Coors and Paseo. I keep flipping between B26, B41 MM^2.

That's good! Hopefully they do a lot of upgrades while they're here. I just wish they would fix the tower on Coors and Montano. It's so terrible.

I'm hopping too! I'm like right in the middle between the two. With getting B41 my Magic Box should improve service even more.

Well when they came through in the late summer, they were able to get all of the far northeast heights GMO's to LTE. I assume that one is a GMO site as well.

I was hoping that one of you could confirm that.  It never showed up on any of my lists.  That, and the one just west of Paseo/Coors at the church and Sandia Peak have never appeared on any list as being GMO'd.

and I cannot confirm the Sandia Peak.

However, northeast is pretty usable. The GMO LTE isn't bad at all either as I trail run train county line to Tower 1 or Tower 2 and stay connected to the cell site at the ice skating rink.
