Just turned on my cdma/lte mode and it connected. I'm only getting 0.5Mbps down and 1Mbps up

I can only get like .5 average and peaks up to .6 with the air rave but it might also be because AT&T caps uverse Internet at 1.5 Mbs up

When I had my airave I used to get 2.5Mbps down and 1.2Mbps Up but it was only if I picked a Chicago server

What part of Detroit are you in? I'm in Southwest Detroit and still get the normal 3G signal, no eHRPD signal

You may have to cycle through airplane mode for it to appear. Also verify that you are in CDMA/LTE mode. It will not work in CDMA only mode.

I just switched to airplane mode then back and still the EvDo stuff. Tried a reboot and still no eHRPD so maybe it's not in all of detroit yet, just parts. But it's good to see our 3G speeds getting better here.

I'm actually in Southfield, MI and I've had a connection to eHRPD pretty much wherever I've been over the past couple of days.

I believe the first tower site in all of Michigan (east or west) that was scheduled for upgrade was in Southfield. Haven't seen it on any of the accepted site reports yet. Maybe next week...

Hello,

 

I was looking at the sensorly maps for sprint and notice that they have two a "4G" and a "wimax." However, I'm thinking maybe they have the maps labeled wrong. It was to my understanding that Wimax was only rolled out in the western side of Michigan. Yet, the link below shows it in various areas in eastern Mi. Lastly, some of those areas were listed to be going to LTE first hence my suspicsion that maybe Michigan/Detroit is seeing LTE and the maps are logging it as wimax??

Is there anyone on Sprint with a LTE phone that could enlighten me if they did deploy Wimax to the area or is this LTE.

Yes they have WIMAX in all kinds of places. Even little podunk towns you've probably never heard of. These are spectrum protection sites.

Detroit has had WiMax Protection sites active for almost 2 years. The coverage you are seeing in Detroit on Sensorly is definitely WiMax and not LTE.

Yeah.... Both AT&T and Verizon have LTE have in Detroit. Sprint better show some activity here soon or my Note II will be on another carrier.

Premier sponsors have access to the maps with the latest known schedule, that is the best information out there. Regular sponsors can see tower maps and a map of sites accepted as complete by Sprint. I'd be shocked if you saw a Sprint LTE signal in Detroit by the time the Note 2 drops. I'm over in Lansing, I'll have my Note 2 on Sprint and happily search out the LTE signals as they come online in the next few months.

 

As digiblur said, do what you have to do if you are unhappy with Sprint's service

 

Can I make a suggestion that this thread be renamed to Network Vision/LTE - East Michigan (Detroit/Flint/Ann Arbor/Saginaw)? Then merge http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/2262-ehrpd-live-in-detroit-mi/ into the thread?

Merged with another Detroit thread and renamed. Thanks.

I'm really hoping for some fast movement here. Would like to get a new Galaxy S3 sooner rather than later. :)

I'm also hoping LTE comes quickly. These 3G speeds are just so terrible.

I get the newer CDMA-eHRPD connection and occassionally get up to .79-1.0Mbps down with .68 up and ping as low as 97ms. These numbers are very rare though as it is usually more like .32Mbps down and .68-.83 up and pings in the 230-350 range. Just give me the LTE i am paying for along with the 4G (wimax) i paid for on devices for over 2 years and never saw. May have to sacrifice unlimited data for speed when the soon ending contract is up. Who really needs unlimited data anymore with all of the wi-fi connections everywhere

I think I can wait for LTE that's faster than most free WiFi connections.

Pretty sure, I saw some towers with the beginnings of NV on my way to Monroe and back this morning. Got a few speed tests over 1mbps with sub 100 ms pings with going 75mph down the freeway.

 

I'll pinpoint the tower I got the best view of when I'm back at a pc. It was near Milan

 

Edit In: So I looked at the Sponsor maps and unless the schedule changed (which I hope it did) I might just be really quality Legacy Sprint. However, I'm sure I saw the new panels and RRUs. I noticed them coming up to the tower, that's why I did the speed test.

 

The tower is on US23, just past the Willow Rd overpass, east side of the highway

I know the speeds in Monroe are horrible but Dundee speeds are better and more consistent except in my plant.

    • It's been this way for a couple years for me, but getting worse. It can't really get worse than it is now unless Sprint adds more customers, since they've already thinned CDMA down to the minimum. The addition of calling plus and VoLTE will take load off of CDMA, so it should start to improve actually.

    • I guess we will hit another rough patch in sprints network

    • Oh excellent!! That's a great sign. Although PCI 0 should show as Unknown..

    • saw that over on reddit a few weeks ago. I don't know how much I would ever use it but its seem cool to play around with for the first few hours you have it and then it just sits in a drawer.    I haven't connected to a clear site with it yet but I will tomorrow morning. I'm just hoping I can at least connect to the clear site that covers my office. So far RF performance has been poor with it. 
    • Got my phone last night and I love the build of it. Very solid heavy phone. My previous phones have been LG G2, Nexus 6, LG G4, and LG V20. Coming from LG phones I am very used to the power button being on the back and it being combined with the finger print reader on the later LG phones. From what I've seen LG is one of the only manufactures that does that. Im not sure why since its only natural to push the back maybe its just my habit. But it also allow you to only have the volume on the side of the phone so you don't hit the wrong buttons.  This brings me to one of my dislikes about the Essential. If you are going to put the volume and power buttons near each other they should put some sort of texture on the power button.  The nexus 6 had it like this. I can't tell you how many times already I've hit the wrong button on the side.   Also I have to say the RF performance on this phone is the worst I've seen. Im getting 3G in many area where there is only GMO B25 sites. Also inside performance is on the edge of B25 and it tends to switch to B26 more often.
