Report Your LTE Connection Here

Recommended Posts

I just mapped a bunch more, and at the Jack-in-the-box at 620/Great Oaks, got a speed test of 16m/3m.

 

Impressive

It would sure help if there was a Sensorly app for Iphone.

Does my profile say I have an Iphone? I must have misspelled Evo 4g. I was just looking for a little help from the massive influx of LTE users today.

Nope... I have lte reception at 4301 rancIer ave. I'm at fort hood right now and no 4g here..

 

If you get a chance to run the Sensorly app the next time you are connected, that would be great. Thanks!

Everything mapped in New Bedford, Ma I did with my EVO and my brother did with his Viper(I think). Guess I have too much time on my hands? :lol:

Getting good 4G connectivity in Tewksbury, MA today, on Route 38 about a mile east of the I-495 interchange. This was in my car. Got VERY fast download and upload speeds when connected to 4G, much faster than even my WiFi connection at home. I would say Comcast should be worried, but so far I haven't gotten a 4G connection at home, even though it's only about a mile from this location and I appear to be connecting to the same tower at home. Must be below the signal strength threshold for 4G at home. (Is that setting something that can be tweaked on an unrooted Evo?)

 

Anyway, a few screenshots follow. A speed test showing a few tests for 4G and 3G, along with a WiFi speed test from my home which makes for a pretty interesting benchmark, and a couple of shots from NetMonitor showing the tower and location info.

I have a pretty consistent connection, but pretty slow speeds, on Beacon Hill.

 

At 1:30 p.m. today in Fanueil Hall, however, it was much faster.

 

My speed test results: Ping: 71ms, Download: 30230kbps, Upload: 11481kbps

When you have a poor speed, you have a poor signal. http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/2040-bars-lie-for-lte-signal-strength-how-to-determine-your-actual-lte-signal-strength/

Don't forget Netmonitor doesn't always show the true location of the tower, and it does not ever show the LTE tower you are connected to, only the 1xRTT connection you have. Best bet to decipher tower location is to become a sponsor of the site and check out the tower maps in the sponsor section of the forums.

Drove up Loop 1 (Mo-Pac) in Austin from Hwy 71 to Hwy 183 and back with Sensorly running.

It showed 40 something hits on 4g. Not sure where yet the 4g actually was. Still trying to learn the app.

 

I think its uploading those results now.

 

Hip hip Hooray 4g is here

I have been running sensorly app and picking up 4g hits in SouthWest Austin Mo-Pac and US HWY 290 area. Not been able to get it in a stationary area yet to do any speed tests.

 

Also got some hits in the Round Rock area I-35 and EXIT 254 area.

i tried to post from my S3 earlier and when i hit 'add comment' the button highlights and does nothing, very frustrating!! SO what i was going to say is that i was driving around south austin for a white earlier today. someone correct me if i'm wrong, but i think the LTE signal came from the sprint store that is at mopac and 290 w. there are a few towers in the area, including a sprint tower across the street but it wasn't on the list for a tower to have LTE work done. i drove over there anyways and confirmed there are no lte antennas or recent work done to the tower. the other tower is an at&t tower. i drove around using sensorly and did some more lte plots. the lte signal was very weak and would only last a few blocks. i did a speedtest and it was less than regular 3G ! my girlfriend S2 got 18mbps on what i call 3.5G or wimax. i feel like i own a ferrari without a motor, it looks pretty but doesn't go anywhere. i now regret chosing sprint. :(

I had to register just to confirm Iroseman.

 

I live in Round Rock, TX also, and today 9/22/12 is the first time I have seen 4G on my Galaxy S3!

 

BTW Iroseman, since you know the area, I picked up 4G in the Forest Creek area of Round Rock.

 

And a side note, I have seen many different towers around here with cranes at there bases raising up what looks to be new antennas. They are round white cylinders that seem to be being mounted at the bottom of the other antennas on the towers.

You regret choosing Sprint? You're in an active LTE deployment area that is just beginning. What in the heck do you expect? Your posts have been great to date, but this one really surprises me. Did someone hack your account?

    • Send me a diagnostic report next time you run into that.. but based on what is on the screen, that looks like a legitimate T-Mobile connection. My Pixel 4 has a hard time letting go of T-Mobile LTE in some strong Sprint areas as well. -Mike
    • As an update to the 5G discussion -- I have received several diagnostic reports from users who noted they were connected to 5G at the time (thanks!), however I have not seen an example where the API is reporting any 5G data. Everything has appeared as regular LTE for now. Please keep sending me reports, I am sure eventually we will have a device that reports it properly! At a minimum it will need to be on Android 10, because the 5G reporting routines did not exist in earlier versions. -Mike
    • No, its because Speedtest has considerably more servers to ping (meaning less hops and closer in proximity) from than any of those other servers you mentioned. Typically, the fastest speed would be considered the most accurate. 
    • So I've noticed that my Speed Test app always seems to show faster speeds than what I'm actually getting. Just now Speed Test showed I was getting 14Mbps down. OpenSignal and Root Metrics were showing 4Mbps and 5Mbps respectively. My Twitter, reddit and Safari apps are running like I'm on a 5Mbps connection. Just this past weekend in Chicago, Speed Test was saying I was getting 5Mbps. OpenSignal and RootMetrics were showing <1Mbps and 1Mbps respectively and my apps were running like they would on a 1Mbps connection. Has anyone else noticed this? I wouldn't be surprised if they were prioritizing speed test connections.  
    • gotcha ok thanks! would at least like to know if the capability is there and that it's possible to enable...
