So Network Vision is slowly but immensely improving the overall experience on Sprint. Luckily living in the Bay Area a large amount of this work has already begun and is continuing each day. For a while I was seeing improvement and loved Sprint for every moment. At the begging of this week all of this suddenly disappeared, being an avid reader of this site I assumed it was an upgrade and just continued on with my day. Now it's near the end of the week and no improvement whatsoever. Basically I would like to know if this is a device related problem (iPhone 4, iOS 6.1, PRL 51094) or if it's an network upgrade which I'll just ignore.
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.
