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.

    • You literally said #2 carrier ahead of AT&T. They're #2 not because of network metrics but because of the amount of subscribers they have. Nationally, they're still ranked last in terms of overall network performance because despite their square milage, they still lack in call and text reliability. There is zero doubt that they have one of, if not the fastest network in the country but that isn't the only metric to measure a network.
    • Nothing to do anything about number of customers... How are they not on par with the big two?  TMobile is crushing it for data in all the major markets.  If TMobile can execute their 2017 coverage map goal, they will be on par with AT&T, which is considered to be in the same coverage league as VZW.  So yes, TMobile will be in this club come 2018. https://www.t-mobile.com/coverage/lte-comparison-map
    • This is a reach. AT&T and Verizon still have twice as many customers as T-Mobile and even if they added 2 Million customers per quarter it would take 8 years before they got to VZ and AT&T's current size, assuming VZW or AT&T don't have any growth at all. We can acknowledge T-Mobile's accomplishments without making it seem like they're nearly on par with the big two. In terms of data speed, sure. In terms of price, they're approaching it too. However, you won't be able to find the consistency of the duopoly's network nationwide on T-Mobile right now. That'll take quite a bit more infill sites. That's why given Sprint's "non-announcement" of 8K macro sites for expansion, I'm glad to see it's not a huge expansion because we know that they're going for reliability over square mileage.
    • burnout8488-   Probably about 30 minutes a day.  I mostly text and web browse with it. Galaxyguy-         I didn't add any other apps at that same time...  Of course, Samsung has installed a number of apps around then and in the last week that I have no use for-  I'll watch to see if indeed my battery rebounds or continues to suck.
    • And in terms of this, TMobile already does on many fronts.  They constantly prove to be #1 in so many data tests. Verizon and TMobile are essentially #1/2 in terms of data speeds and they are the most constrained carriers in terms of spectrum.  In terms of Coverage, TMobile continues to show us how they will be on par with VZW/AT&T soon and do continue to deliver with expanded coverage. TMobile is well on its way without Sprint to be equal to VZW/AT&T.  So that is three strong nationwide carriers with Sprint still being a forth option if absolute total native coverage is less a concern.  They are well on their way to provide fast speeds within existing coverage areas.  Honestly, with a little stronger rural coverage and less dead zones TMobile will be the nations #2 carrier ahead of AT&T.
