I was in the zip codes of 33993 and 33991 today and did some speed tests on speedtest.net
I got speeds of about .8 Mbps with peek rates of 1 Mbps. I tried to upload pictures but the uploader said files were to large but even though they were below the maximum file size
I've been following the network.sprint.com site and just in the past year in South Florida there have been over 700+ upgrades to towers in my area (Miami/Fort Lauderdale) with another like 400+ planned! I've been taking screen grabs and adding them up. I know we are on the second tier LTE launch list but could they be doing the upgrades now? I mean I have noticed the speed on my 3G shoot up from unbearable to quite fast in the past 6 months or so. Also the speed of 3G on my new EVO LTE is about double+ of that on my OG EVO! So are these just a lot of 3G upgrades, normal maintenance, Network Vision or new LTE cabinets? When I choose other cities from the drop-down list they have a quarter of the updates that the towers in my area are getting except for say New York, lol. I've tried 4G LTE on my new EVO LTE with no luck. I remember that before the 4G Wimax launch down here in some areas I could get Wimax on one or two towers in certain locations so I thought they might test like last time. Thanks for any answers in advance.
Yeah I do use T-Mobile as well. I don't know if I would ever use T-Mobile's home internet at all. I get pretty good speeds from Comcast. They're a bit more expensive but they work pretty well and they have a reliability rate of about 99% here. There's only been a couple of times where they were having a problem here. And I do think in my own personal opinion in my area T-Mobile would have to densify dramatically in order to provide such a service. During rush hour at times their network crawls. so I agree with you as a T-Mobile user I would be worried. Sent from my Pixel 3a using Tapatalk
As a T-Mobile network user I am concerned. As a computer consultant I think it is good. From a T-Mobile business standpoint it may help justify more rural sites and puts cable companies on the defensive.
Personally I would always recommend that your ISP and cell phone carrier should be different, since most people do not have different ISPs. That way if one goes down you can still communicate with the outside world (in everyday situations).
