I was in the zip codes of 33993 and 33991 today and did some speed tests on speedtest.net
I got speeds of about .8 Mbps with peek rates of 1 Mbps. I tried to upload pictures but the uploader said files were to large but even though they were below the maximum file size
I've been following the network.sprint.com site and just in the past year in South Florida there have been over 700+ upgrades to towers in my area (Miami/Fort Lauderdale) with another like 400+ planned! I've been taking screen grabs and adding them up. I know we are on the second tier LTE launch list but could they be doing the upgrades now? I mean I have noticed the speed on my 3G shoot up from unbearable to quite fast in the past 6 months or so. Also the speed of 3G on my new EVO LTE is about double+ of that on my OG EVO! So are these just a lot of 3G upgrades, normal maintenance, Network Vision or new LTE cabinets? When I choose other cities from the drop-down list they have a quarter of the updates that the towers in my area are getting except for say New York, lol. I've tried 4G LTE on my new EVO LTE with no luck. I remember that before the 4G Wimax launch down here in some areas I could get Wimax on one or two towers in certain locations so I thought they might test like last time. Thanks for any answers in advance.
I drove all the way from Boston, MA to Easton, PA and encountered only a few 3G areas along the way. They were mostly areas with just poor service in general. There was only one area I found in Connecticut where I had a strong 3G signal with no LTE. In Easton with 2xCA from a mini macro pulling about 30Mbps in the middle of the day. When I was in Bethlehem, PA visiting my friend's family, I had 3xCA from a Sprint 8T8R site and I was getting up to 74Mbps.
Since getting my magic box setup, I've seen steady improvement in signal strength and download speed over the past couple weeks. No issues with any of our devices connecting to it. It's quite remarkable to go from barely any service to what is attached in the link above.
