Non network vision 3g speeds. (speedtest)


Recommended Posts

Are those average speeds? I'll take half of that anyday on 3G consistantly!

 

When I first switched to Sprint I thought they all would be like that.

When I first switched to Sprint it was like that :(. I used to hit 2.5mbps in my apartment sometimes.

Miami is getting lte really soon. You'll be set for quite awhile. :-)

I'm from the country and when you get a strong signal the speeds are always decent.There just aren't too many people connected. Before data was an issue at all though, sometimes when we were out at some friend's house we would have to stand on the pickup truck to make a cell phone call. We would use the cordless phone but we had to leave the barn (where the chairs for sitting and talking about football and transmissions and the "beer fridge" was) after they started using the metal siding it just wouldn't have good signal to the base. So it was just as good to use the cell which would at least ring. And now you all know just how redneck my childhood was... Also thinking about it, I remember when someone rolled over a 4-wheeler in a creek on a nokia phone and it still worked, those memes are true.

 

In the last three years though, college has put me in towns and cities with greatly fluctuating populations. It's funny to watch kids squirm in pain as Facebook loads forever (on any carrier) while trying to figure out how to make devices work on WPA2 enterprise and then sometimes getting a bad IP. As soon as school is out and the majority of the kids leave the area, bam speed.

 

...so yeah, non NV areas were fine until the everyone seemed to buy an iPhone at once.

Not completely. 3G was painfully slow on my OG EVO months before I got the iPhone. However, once the iPhone launched, it just got worse :(

In pittsburgh I get between 1-2Mb/s so its not too bad... but when I go home north of pittsburgh, it gets painfully slow and I cant remember a place that I actually get above 2 bars on my phone (i know they're not an accurate representation of true signal, but this is just a comparison), it is barely enough for me to stream Pandora while mowing the lawn. My only hope is that when they deploy 800MHz LTE, I will get a good signal, and not have to roam on 3G b/c verizon is really not much better with their speeds, and roaming deals let them throttle you further.

Seems to me that everyone is having an amazing time with Sprint but me :( I can't wait to compare results with NV. But for now this is what I am dealing with.

 

You're not alone.

I spent a day in Albuquerque yesterday (definitely a non NV area). I ran continuous data tests using Root Metrics app. My average speed in 500+ tests was 650kbps. The last time I did a test like this around ABQ, the average was between 350kbps and 400kbps. So on the whole, things have improved.

 

There were several sites that used to be sub 100kbps that are now between 1.5Mbps and 2.5Mbps. Pleasant surprises. However, there are now new sites that are sub 100kbps. Two steps forward, one step back. But to see progress is encouraging.

This is good news, and shows that those 'network improvements' (band-aid fixes) that they show on the sprint website are actually being worked on.

I was surprised today to find these speeds during the day. I was going into work and ran a random speedtest. Finally getting to see some progress with the band aid fixes. lol

Those are good Speeds. Do all the iPhones have that yellow Sprint logo up top?

    • Sure.. or it can just leave it blank or zero, whatever is easiest for you.
    • Added, and 2 more estimated sites: T-Mobile eNB 876480. Looks like its located at (40.62210996397784, -73.97627312607108), as the tower looks like a Sprint setup. T-Mobile eNB 875632. Both this site and Sprint eNB 9022 seem to be located at (40.61640722407462, -73.96985178560767).
    • Many of these sites I am uploading are for sites that do not exist, yet.  Although, I suppose I could go into NR only mode every time I connect to a new site, and then switch back, allowing all the TAC NR trails that occur to now have a home. Ideally, I would love to ne able to add the TAC's myself.  I have the NR Trails CSV file downloaded, and I see all the TAC-less NR entries.  Is there any way I can edit and manually upload them myself?  Maybe create a portal for such an upload?  Or at least give me a way to create at least one manual entry for every new site? Robert
    • Could we send the TAC as -1 if it’s invalid? Then, if there’s and existing site that matches the other info, I could match the web data entry up with it (despite the TAC being absent). 
    • Mine has been enabled.  And they show up in my device logs with the TAC null. Robert
