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.
