Data speeds have been inconsistent between my commute from Lomita to Downtown LA and back to Lomita.

 

I started the morning at Eshelman and PCH with slow speeds. The speeds continued to be slow at work near Spring and Temple Streets in Downtown LA throughout the day, even to the point of non existent speeds. Then got some much faster speeds eclipsing the 1meg down threshold near the West in Boneventure Hotel on 3rd and Flower Streets.

I'm waiting for some sort of update. I've had two EVO 4G LTE's and both freeze when loading the camera half the time, SMS and people app hangs for 30+ seconds on initial load, and Sense home does the 'Loading' thing every time I hit home. I have found many people with similar issues (except for the initial contact load). Hoping an update will fix it since the most recent ring tone patch didn't. evasa2e6.jpg

Calabasas, CA (Los Angeles Metro): 0.00 / 0.00

I had to laugh! Calabasas Los Angeles ringing in at good old 0

 

I am failing to see the point of posting repetitive bad 3G speed tests. We all experience poor Sprint 3G performance in many places on the network. Help me to understand how this is helpful or goes along with S4GRU core mission? To me, it just seems to pollute a thread that could be helpful about new Network Vision discoveries in the LA Metro market.

Trying to show others, namely anyone with Sprint who denies speed tests like these exist.. They keep telling me that it's impossible to have data speeds this bad in LA. This is proof that I do.

Well, we don't deny they exist. But we don't want our forums polluted with them. Please do not post them anymore. Thank you. http://s4gru.com/ind...-aka-the-rulez/

You seem quite irate!

No I'm not 'irate'. I just have a passion to expose corruption in companies rather than being one of the masses who just says 'that's how it is nowadays'. Let's get back on topic, which is not the mood that I have when posting something.

Thank you. :D

Ok will do. So no more speed tests until LTE?

You've logged the baseline before NV now. So you can post the changes from here on out. Improved speeds.

community.sprint.com would be a good place for them. Or dan@sprint.com would be another outlet.

Any update on when testing will start?

 

We will not know until either members report seeing LTE signals or something shows up on some Sensorly.

Any news on when the NV/4G might start in Ventura County? (Just over the hill from NV in LA area thats outlined on one of the 4guru maps). I'm specifically looking for info on Simi Valley which the sprint website says "next 6 months" for many tower improvements. I would assume it would be part of the build out spreading outward from LA metro.

 

Now in the "old days" of WiMax, clearwire actually got permitted on most cell sites in Simi from City Council but they ran out of money within the next few months so I never got to see 4G.

I figured this would fit in LA metro since its a neighboring county and didn't warrant its own thread.

      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.
