Great 3G in West Michigan- any other reports?

Below is the test I took today after noticing some significant improvement in speed. This was taken in a location off of the Richland/ Gull Lake tower next to M89 in Kalamazoo. I wondered if anyone out there in West Michigan has been noticing any other changes?

 

The only place I can say that has not had anything good happen in W.MI is in Battle Creek :/

No Network Visions upgrades in Michigan are scheduled until this fall. I'd check out network.sprint.com for the area and see if that tower got some "band aid" fixes. Ericsson is updating towers with additional voice and data carriers, along with additional or replacement backhaul. I had a couple around me in Lansing touched and the difference with a few more T1s for backhaul is amazing.

Just to clarify...if you have a site getting speeds greater than 1.4Mbps, you likely have a site with AAV backhaul. T1's are limited to 1.5Mbps total throughout speed, but Max out around 1.3-1.4Mbps once you figure the loss through the network.

 

Sprint has some legacy sites that have AAV backhaul for 3G. Especially newer sites installed since 2009. Also, with some network management upgrades, the local ILEC would not give additional T1's for more backhaul. When that occurs, sometimes they have switched to AAV. Either of these instances could be in play here.

    • I am using Starry for my home internet. I hope it doesn't collapse and make me go to cable.
    • Some of the other plans have been throttled, like the ED1500.  Fixes ultimately came, but it took several years iirc.  I moved on to the Sprint Max.  One of my hopes was I would get the billing transition sooner. Nope.  Wonder if they are going after the static IP.  Likely work around is VPN, especially with a smaller more obscure service.  Rumor has been T-Mobile would start transitioning Sprint Billing customers in earnest next quarter  -- wait, isn't that always the promise?
    • I've been using Samsung devices for a couple years and I've never been able to mirror without wifi? I'm not sure what exactly you're talking about.
    • Is there a way to mirror this thing to my smart tv without having to have wifi, the way I've always done with Samsung phones both at home and at work? Samsung phones do it with TCL and other smart TVs as well, not just Samsung TVs.  Samsung has saved me a ton of money over the years in this regard.  If I can't do this then it will absolutely be a deal breaker for me.  I still have the Samsung phone and can use it to mirror but I shouldn't have to default to a three year old phone for this.  
    • So, I've now gone to a legacy Sprint store and talked with various agents on chat, and I keep getting redirected to scripts, with folks throwing solutions at the wall that I know won't work. I have the Sprint Unlimited Plus business plan, which includes 1080p streaming (8 Mbps throttle). But since going TNX I've been throttled to 2.5 Mbps or less for video. Who do I contact and how do I ask them to fix this? 'cuz it sounds like someone has gotten this fixed before?
