I thought these band-aid fixes were NV?


Recommended Posts

Now I noticed Jax, FL is getting NV/LTE rollout at the same time. I thought the entire time they were doing "minor upgrades" in my area that it was network vision. Am I wrong? And if I'm pulling 2.6Mbps DL at my house, is it possible that when they put the new towers in that my speeds might go down if they tilt the panels a different angle?

There is not likely to be much difference in downtilt on a NV site than a legacy site. The only differences in downtilt we have discussed really have been related to LTE.

 

Even if they do modify the downtilt, it likely would not have much effect on you. EVDO is not really signal strength dependent. With 3G EVDO performance drops very little from -65dBm to -102dBm. But then falls off a cliff after -102dBm. If you are getting consistent 2.6Mbps DL now, you likely will after NV too.

I really do love my sprint gs3.

And thanks Rob for the confirmation.

Dang i would've thought you'd get maybe a little bit lower pings with such high download and upload speeds but where you in downtown or in Orange Park, Fleming, Beach, or any other suburbs around Jacksonville going there monday and would like to know how good 3G performance is.

Pings and speeds don't go hand in hand. It all depends on the backhaul.

Well with Backhual that gets speeds like that id assume that pings would be lower but I guess not. Like I saw a video in NYC that got good speeds and 80ms pings

I honestly haven't seen a faster speed ever. (Even from other people.) On my GS2, I maxed at about 2.2mbps. The GS3 shows much stronger signal (probably PRL related, aswel.)

 

But the stars are the towers in my area and the circle is my house. :P

 

The Sprint tower to the southeast of my house is the one that's getting LTE first. I'm really hoping I'm inside range. :P

 

EDIT: reason behind me making this thread is because if I go down the street (literally, about a football field), my speeds are .5 mbps. LOL I'm fortunate that my house is really good, I was just curious if the towers would be adjusted in any way that may hinder my house performance.

Is it because it using Microwave instead of Fiber for the backhual? Edited by Steven800

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
