Network Vision/LTE - East Michigan Market (Detroit/Flint/Ann Arbor/Tri-Cities)

Recommended Posts

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 ve noticed some much improved 3G speeds the last few months. I can't wait for LTE.

Nice. I live close to that tower. I've been noticing some increase in speeds lately, but still hit and miss.... I'm not sure when they will start working on NV upgrades in this area, but I am looking forward to some 4G action!.

Over the weekend I started noticing better speeds in southwest Detroit. Went from barely getting 100kbps down, to almost a full megabyte down.

So it is almost end of October... Does anybody know if Sprint staring NV work in the Detroit area, or delayed???

Monroe has got the eHRPD's. I just checked my network while eating lunch by Telegraph.

I live close to Southfield, on the northern edge of Livonia, and while I can't figure out if my iPhone is connected to eHRPD or not, I've done a few speedtests and hav gotten speeds in this order

Ping: Down: Up:

86ms/1.28Mbps/.87mbps

67ms/1.49Mbps/.81Mbps

88ms/1.18Mbps/.87Mbps

Pretty fast to what I get in Ann Arbor which is usually

~300ms/~.60Mbps/~.30Mbps

Any word yet on metro Detroit? Waiting for 4g is killing me. Apple stores laugh when you take your phone in to get checked because sprint service is so slow. It's embarrassing but good thing there is 4g in Puerto Rico.

Talked to a Sprint corporate store employee yesterday who said that Sprint's timeline for having Detroit area's LTE fully up and running is now June 2013, fwiw......

They won't have the market 100 percent done in June, but they should have a decent amount of coverage by then and when they launch the market prob around that time scinice they seem to be a little behind schedule

Thanks for the info. June is ridiculous. Switching to sprint was a mistake. Guess I should have done my homework more. I never had speed problems when I had sprint a couple years ago.

The network needs to be upgraded. That's what Network Vision does.

I have a friend in Michigan on Sprint who reminds me everyday how awful it is up there. His speeds in Roscommon are silly bad. He is convinced that Sprint will never upgrade his tower.

They are terrible in most areas, NV is needed so badly here. Towers are over subscribed, backhaul is non existent...

He sent me a picture of an eagles nest in the tower in Grayling. That's unfortunate.

Lately I've been experiencing "network busy" in Farmington Hills, MI and was not able to send texts or make calls.....

Either the network is getting extremely overloaded, or they are staring work... :scratch:

My parents are in Farmington Hills and right in a signal dead zone. I got them an Airwave and it makes a HUGE difference. You have to have Cable Internet however to make it work. Def something to look in too. 5 bars always while I'm over there visiting. Fast data speeds and never a dropped call.

... just got confirmation from Sprint that a tower near my area was down.... It's been restored and it's all back to "normally slow speeds" as usual... :td:
