Just landed in LA.

I'm connected to ehrd. This means that they are blocking the lte signal eh?

 

Nope. Doesn't mean that at all. eHRPD goes live far in advance of LTE.

Decided to do a speed test. I'm connected to ehrd. This means that they are blocking the lte signal eh? At the Lax airport.

 

Overall, 3g speeds do not disappoint. :-)

 

Thanks. Those are at least positive results during the transition. I live in Orange County, not super-far from LAX and that keeps my hopes up for staying with Sprint and getting either the S3 or EVO 4G LTE soon. Just watching for positive progress in this area b4 I make a final decision. Those are consistent with the tests I've seen at the local Costa Mesa Sprint Store.

coolio I hope I get some exclusive lte testing!

 

You won't get much exclusive time. I'm coming down to LA tomorrow early morning. I just hope my data speeds will be closer to yours unlike the last time i was down there. 10-20 Kbps on 3g.

they've been consistently above average (avg being 500kbps). My hotel room has 1mbps down and up. :-)

 

I'll let you know if I get any lte action.

Have you tried toggling from CDMA/LTE to CDMA and back to CDMA/LTE to see if you gain eHRPD?

came down to Manhattan Beach and got it now.. 4257430d-07d9-c52a.jpg

I have been impressed by Sprint's speeds here since arrival.

 

I've been in different areas all day. Been here since 5pm' date=' mtn time.

 

Edit: the 2mbps speed test is right at sunset Boulevard and Laurel Avenue.[/quote']

 

2 Mbps in LA? Wild!

This thread reminds me that I need to start doing some more speedtests around the South Bay and Downtown LA.

 

Before I traded my former HTC EVO 4G LTE for the Samsung Galaxy S III, I did a speedtest last week on Flower Street between 3rd and 5th Streets in Downtown LA. I was amazed the speedtest clocked around 2300kbps down. I forgot what the upload and ping, and I no longer have the info since it was wiped before I traded the phone.

Does ehrpd give better speed results than evdo A?

they're about the same. Sometimes it's slightly faster and I notice upload is usually faster on it. Although it's hardly noticeable.

It depends but ehrpd is connected to the new backhaul and 4g cores so you could get better speeds due to less traffic but bot necessarily.

nice results' date='anyone with some results up in San Fernando valley?[/quote']

 

I just drive thru there this morning on the 405 and could hardly maintain a connection to 3g.

The 405 pass is terrible! I drop voice calls around 4-5 times driving from the valley to the west side.

 

I know the 405 has had a couple of weak spots for quite a while. The problem is that it seems to have gotten much worse. I am hoping that since they are working on things that the problem is temporary.

I'm sure it is. Too bad i didn't get to test out LTE today. Didn't go anywhere near the 2 active towers today. :(

 

I'll post my speedtests later on eHRPD, which dropped off the 405 just south of La Tijera Blvd, but i had it on the 105 to the central ave exit, and down on El Segundo Blvd by Willowbrook Park.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
