Los Angeles, CA

(Metro Area Reports & Data)

 

 

 

San Fernando Valley speeds are varying daily. One day they might top out at about 1mbps download, the next they can be all but dead with anywhere from no 3G at all to about 0.05mbps.

Santa Monica, CA speeds are on average 0.10 - 0.30mbps download speeds.

Please upload your results for Los Angeles via speedtest, etc & any opinions and findings throughout LA. I created this Los Angeles topic because the time for LA's 4G LTE is drawing near! This forum is for talk about Los Angeles, it's rollout, current speeds, and 4G LTE testing and rollout news when it happens!

As u can see the speeds go up and down.I am in Glendale close to downtown.Outside home the speeds are better and there is a tower like one mile that close to it the speed jump to almost 2mbps.

 

Do these speeds remain consistent or are they variable (one day this way; the next totally different)?

Is this normal during NV 'upgrades'?! Is my area even still being upgraded?

I just got the best speed test I have ever received in Calabasas at my house! Just a few minutes ago (previous post above) I got the worst ever. Fingers crossed.. Maybe some work is being done?? :fingers:

Not really sure why this thread was created when we already have a thread dedicated to the LA market.

Unfortunately since Oxnard is in the north LA market, we don't know yet when it will be started.

 

For comparison though, here's a speed test from the other day in Ventura on the way to work. I did notice they enabled eHRPD as of a week or so ago. Sort of off topic though, until north LA is underway.

I'm getting ehrpd in a new location now but it still drops to EvDo while I'm commuting so I'm thinking that it must not be prevalent enough yet throughout Los Angeles to hold.

 

On the other side, I've been able to successfully stream music while at work for the first time in a long time despite slow speeds. I was also talking to some other people who have sprint who mentioned how bad the network has been in the last 3 or so months with more dropped calls and dead spots. Sprint would be wise to educate its users that it is upgrading the network or else I can see some leaving b/c of the upgrade pains.

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

    • I chatted with a foreman the other day (figured out what tmo panels look like lol) but he was also "on lend" from a verizon contractor. So he didn't know a ton.. but enough. It's going on, it seems like its a little bit of slow process. And things screw up there to (he had an install were the panels S/N didn't match that which was on the paper work back in the office)   AND TMO does more over the phone vs having a eng. on hand like verizon does, so it slows it down a bit if they have a hiccup... Like wrong S/N lol
    • The direct number to Account Services/Retentions is  844-382-3317 . I think they might be able to help.
    • I went to three stores that had Sprint SIMs in stock, none of which could activate one for my iPhone. I also tried calling in twice as well as speaking with someone on online chat. In every instance, I was told they couldn’t move me back or that the system wasn’t letting them activate my device. While it may be possible to go back, they are definitely not making it easy. And customers like me (who depend on their phones for work) cannot deal with dropped calls and EDGE in the time it takes to figure it out. 
    • Unless something has changed, you can still go back. There are still immediate needs to do so- activating a phone not eligible for TNX yet like a pixel 5 for instance. You just have to do it through chat/customer support as the online portal doesn't support going back to a Sprint sim.
    • Just a heads up for anyone else thinking about making the switch to TNX - I tried for about two weeks and it does not appear you can go back if you don’t like your service with TNX.  I would strongly recommend staying on TNA for anyone who is hesitant/unsure.
