3G Speeds in Miami


Mondays In Flames

Recommended Posts

I'm starting this topic because I'm extremely curious about Sprints network for 3G. I currently have the EVO LTE and I absolutely love it, the only thing that bothers me a bit is Sprint 3G network. At times it's great, it flies for 3G but it's only in certain areas such as Coral Gables, Biscayne, Palmetto Bay, and Pinecrest. Other areas such as Doral, Kendall, and Sweetwater, the network is horrible.

 

In the areas where the connection is amazing, I get pings as low as 89ms (Would post pictures, but I had to get a replacement phone) and up to 2.2mbps. In other areas the highest pings I've recorded are 889ms and the speeds crawl at 0.01mbps.

 

My question is this, I read somewhere on the interwebs that NV is starting from the South (as in Homestead area) and working it's way north, but what I see is that the Coastal areas have better speeds, and the inland areas are not as great...? Is NV being worked on down here, and from where?

Most cities start network vision on the outer city area and work inward. One example of this is Chicago were towers started to be updated in the outer city area. I believe there are no NV completed towers in Downtown Chicago yet reported. If the Miami market is down the same way then speeds will be better by the coast, the outer city. NV has started in Miami though and should be finished by early 2013.

What about Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach? I live in central Broward and wanted an ETA on when I could see a few towers start popping up near me. I too have the same issues of fast connection (very few spots) and slow everywhere else but I have not noticed a difference versus inland, etc. Also you can find out data on your local tower repairs @ https://network.sprint.com/ although it only shows 3G fixes and no network vision info.

 

Thanks,

You should also donate so that you can see the progress of sites that are expected to come online. There is one site located in Palm Beach that Robert reported should be completed. More sites should show up on next month map as well...

I would love to see some NV Love down here for Miami in July :)

 

It would be my birthday after all, that would be an amazing birthday present :D

I'm new here so excuse me if this seems like a silly question How much of a donation do you need to make before you are able to view the additional network maps?

Looks like my local tower may have had a speed upgrade completed. I've never experienced this type of 3G speeds ever in my home since joining Sprint.
