Robert, your EARFCN 40978 indicates a 2628.8 MHz center frequency, putting this TDD carrier in BRS blocks. As you move around among sites and sectors, keep a log of your EARFCNs. Let us see if it changes.

AJ


So far, every site I've connected to has been 40978. I'm keeping track of everything. I will definitely post any differences I come across.

We got severely delayed by a car accident/construction mess in Colorado Springs. We are checked into the hotel and my wife and I are even have a drink together for the first time in years.

Down in the basement lounge here I'm still getting a respectable TD-LTE 2600 signal and good speeds.

More testing later...in the morning.

Sent a donation, have some more drinks with the wifey tonight!  :D  Please try to get 75Mbps speed test so I can send to John Legere.  :tu:

I'm curious if he is keeping track of the cell IDs as well. Those look like decimal style global cell identity numbers.


Definitely. I will be updating them on the Premier Sponsor TD-LTE site map.

Best final result so far inside the hotel. We are now calling the valet for our car and about to go mobile. I have had to switch to the 12GB hotspot plan for the remainder of this billing period. I'm burning through the GB's! AJ is twitching. :)

EDIT:  Got one even slightly better:

This is the best Band 25 test from my hotel.  Seeing how the nearest site is approx 8 miles away, that's not bad at all.  -113dBm RSRP, Cell ID 138486529.

I guess the bed doesn't have red silk sheets and rotates either then.

That Zing seems to have quite the 1900 antenna in it, 8 miles away. The MiFi 500 is having trouble getting a site 2 miles away. Mind you, there's nothing but dirt and trees and rock in the way, instead of clear atmosphere...

 

Do you think the reason you haven't gotten above ~50 Mbps is backhaul?

 

In other news, the MiFi 500's lte_available file is anything but plaintext... No idea how to read it. I'll post it if anyone's interested.


Call me Koi, everyone else does.

If you're responding to my post, please quote me. I might miss it otherwise!

No, Mr. J.W. Marriott was quite a prude.  ;)

There is a new Band 25 LTE site in Thornton, adjacent to some Clearwire TD-LTE 2600 sites.  I'm going to see if I can do some hand off testing.

Okay, from a band plan perspective, here is what we are looking at for the TD-LTE carrier in Denver.  It is located right at the low end of the contiguous 55.5 MHz of BRS spectrum that is counted as part of the spectrum screen.

Please Youtube any speeds over 70Mbps.  Don't want John Legere to say we had Photoshop the speed test.  ;)

Actually, if Joey has been left in charge, I imagine the happenings back at the house are a little more like this...

That spreadsheet looks mighty familiar.  I wonder where he got the info from for the green blocks.

I got it from the Motorola Photon 4G, of course.

Nice.  AT&T &Verizon top out at what? about 35-40? My home cable to the PC is only 40 mbps right now. Will Sprint be able to claim the fastest  speed when the network is rolled out? I would like to wipe the smirk off AT&T's face.
