Sprint speed!!!


Recommended Posts

I would call and report it. I had the same issue at work with our speed on campus, sprint came out and fixed it, and my speed was much better after that.

Uncritically negative posts are a violation of our posting guidelines. We are not a Sprint complaint board. I thank you for your assistance in trying to keep S4GRU a place to have informative and helpful posts about the Sprint network. We all aware there are vast expanses of Sprint 3G in dire straits.

 

That's why Sprint is spending billions on upgrading with Network Vision. It's going to take some time to get everywhere. If you cannot wait it out, we understand. Everyone has to do what they have to do.

This is the best course of action in regards to your concerns. Follow it. Your blood pressure will thank you.

The upgrades REALLY are coming. We're not just saying that. I used to get the same abysmal speeds here in East Atlanta, however, since March, my speeds have drastically improved. Being a sponsor, I am able to see maps that show me certain things, suc as the fact that the tower I generally connect to has not yet even been NV upgraded. So when I tell you that my 3G speeds have increased from around what you're experiencing to - just now - 1.6 mbps, I am telling you nothing but good news as these appear to be only band-aid fixes. The real good stuff is still yet to come. Again, these are just the 3G speed improvements. Sit tight.

Yes please let's not turn this place into another Sprint.com community forum !! One of those on the internet is quite enough !!

I came in here expecting to see some LTE speed tests, instead, I see a thread that has served it's purpose, and is in need of a closing.

 

You don't have to go home but you can't stay here. :)

    • Just mapped at least 8 5G small cells (all 109xxxx gNBs) while driving on the Southern State. They all seem to be n25/n41. I'm pretty sure nearly all of them are upgrades of existing small cells as opposed to new builds but I'm glad to see Crown Castle/T-Mobile hard at work getting midband 5G on all of these. Each of the unpinned gNBs belong to 1-2 small cells. I still can't pin these sites until the Cellmapper devs give us the option to split cells for 5G sites.
    • Their offers have been crap recently, so this is just more evidence to not buy from T-Mobile. 
    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.
