bad data signal

Recommended Posts

I picked up my HTC Evo 4G Lte saturday and am very disappointed in the data speed. My original Evo 4G was much better. The people at sprint can't explain why. Anybody else have probs with there Evo lte? BTW I live in sarasota, FL.

I looked at a Evo 4g LTE at the Sprint store locally and compared speed tests with my almost 3 year old Palm Pre. The Evo averaged about 150 kbps down and the Pre 450 kbps. I didn't think too much about it because I used the Speedtest.net app for the Evo and a website test site on the Pre. Apples and oranges I thought, now, I wonder.

Were you using 4G WiMAX with your previous EVO?

So far, speeds have been spot on the same between my EVO LTE and my E4GT here around Northern New Mexico and Albuquerque. Never more than 100k difference really.

 

If you think about it, there is really no difference in speed tests between 1.1Mbps and 1.3Mbps. That's close enough to be the same given all the variables in a speed test and cell sector burdens. So there shouldn't be much pause between 100k and 300k differences either.

100Kbps would be a huge difference in Lansing, MI, seeing that my normal speed tests on my E4GT don't even reach 100Kbps...

My speed test results have been virtually the same between my EVO 4G and my EVO 4G LTE here in the Atlanta area.

No issues here on EVO LTE coming from EVO 3D.

Lol, I hear ya. Some days here in Macomb, Mi 100 Kbps could be double my speed. It's rare that I get over 400Kbps, usually its around 200 Kbps. So that 100 Kbps could make quite a differrence.

Well, what a difference a few hours makes. First screen shot below is from yesterday morning 10:19am, the second is from this morning in the same spot at 7:26am.

 

Robert, would you think this is an issue that requires more backhaul or additional carriers? Downtown fills up with workers in the next 45 mins and bandwidth comes to a crawl.

I just moved from SRQ and was not impressed with data signal there. I always had issues. I don't think it is the phone. I don't have any issues with my EVO LTE. I still have a house in SRQ that I would love to sale.

Tested the EVO 4G LTE 3G speeds and seemed right where it should be - no noticeable difference between this phone and others.

speeds for me are the same for me between the OG evo, 3d and lte same old sub 100k speeds.

My Viper overall has had better data speeds than my EVO Shift, and has even had a better overall data connection.

      I have the $100 for two lines Family Unlimited Data Plan with add-on lines at $40.
       
      Would there be any "fine-print" drawbacks?
       
      Like, loss of Unlimited for Life Guarantee?
      Less off-network roaming data allotment from the usual 300+Mb of data?
      Lower priority on the network? I know that bucket data plans have the highest post-paid priority.
       
      What will I miss out on? Because I can NOT fathom that Sprint will be losing money by giving you 3GB of hotspot data AND lose more money than my current plan.

      I'm sure everyone remembers the free night and weekend minutes we had years ago. This morning I was thinking what if a carrier took that same idea but instead made for it data. I think that if a carrier was able to implement this that it would be big and a game changer. What do you guys think?

      With the introduction of the new plans Sprint has announced. I told one of my friends about the $60 unlimited plan and she was shocked yet happy about it. She currently has T-Mobile and there has been times where my Sprint service has out performed her service even in the city with puling up information and out of town...well... you already know how that went. She was talking about switching and stuff but then she sent me a typical article bashing Sprint and I got irritated by it and I had to explain to her that Sprint is not bad at all. These articles are based on past experiences from 3+ years ago. I told her I'm pulling 60+ mbps on LTE but she's worried about Sprint being slow ( because of what she read). Guys give me some advice on persuading her to give Sprint a chance. 
       
      I feel like articles that are being posted is what keeps away customers.  It makes no sense that T-Mobiles 2g network is not spoken about when they are in the news for changes to plans and such. But good ol Sprint makes changes and articles that get posted rips Sprint apart for filth.
