San Diego has just seen an increase in 3G speed. for the last year I was only getting 24 kbps now as of Monday 8-6-12 there has been and increase to a level where I can use Skype or watch my Slingbox.

Hopefully LTE will be coming soonpost-126-0-84460100-1344553781_thumb.jpg

My 3G performance has been dismal lately. Areas that used to be near 1Mbps are now down to 250 kbps consistently. The network in north San Diego County is too crowded. Sprint needs more towers, data capacity or even Clearwire (gasp) to come in and install some network coverage. Something must be done!

Many areas have seen 3G decline since the coming of the LTE devices. More towers are not needed when a network gets crowded, just more carriers at each site for more capacity. However, most likely, most of the data problems in San Diego are most likely caused by insufficient backhaul.

 

The only time more towers are used is for more coverage, or to add capacity when all of the spectrum is used up in an area (smaller/denser cells).

So is backhaul the issue when I keep loosing signal on the Old Town to Downtown trolley? The Sprint maps all show what looks like very high density of towers along this route.

 

Or for that matter - my daughter is always listening to songs on youtube - her iphone will sing without trouble all the way from Bonita to downtown and then drop out at least once a trip on the I-8 Old Town to OB freeway.

 

I mostly use my phone in the area south of 52 and west of 805. My call call completion has degraded in last 4 months. I will get text messages sent up to 8 hours previously even though both of us are within 2 miles of each other, usually in Pt. Loma. Very frustrating when it's my son saying he will be late home.

 

OTOH, in the last 2 months I now can reliably watch TED talks from inside my building at work (on approved breaks, of course).
