Fastest 3g speeds ever seen?


Recommended Posts

Fastest I've seen was 3Mbps at 2AM and I was a 5 minute drive from the tower in Brooklyn. The fastest the I have seen mid day was 2.4 Mbps in Battery Park City.

You have a speed test? I would like to see the ping and upload as well, just for curiosity's sake.

No sorry. Wish I would've kept it because I regularly delete apps on my phone. My ping was in the low 60's and upload reached about 1.4. I would've kept it had I known that this topic was here.

Wow, that's impressive. I still haven't gotten an upload above 1mbps when the download was above 2mbps. Was this pre-NV or post?

I believe it is post NV because I have received lower pings and higher speeds recently. However I am not 100% sure because I haven't gone to the tower itself yet.

I loaded a Verizon prl today and did speed tests all day. Verizon definite has more coverage but Sprint is right up there.

The screen shot is Verizon at my local movie theater. Sprint pulled 2.07 mbps down and 783kbps up. Surprsingly, sprint had 95 ms ping while Verizon had 200+. Overall, I'd pick sprint over the Verizon speed because anything over 2mbps is more than enough for me. :-)

While roaming on Verizon EvDo, I have never had a ping less than 200, even though the speed has been right up there where yours is. I think it may be because you aren't going through Verizon directly, so the ping takes longer. Just a guess, but if anyone wants to chime in if they know the reason, I'd be interested. ;)

I have had some relatively slow pings on Verizon.

I think it's because Verizon has way more subscribers than sprint in my area. They have more backhaul though.

I hit 2.52Mbps on a completed NV site in Waco. Otherwise the fastest I have hit in NM is 2.2Mbps. None of the sites in my immediate area exceed 1.4Mbps because they are all on T1's.

I would assume that would mean the tower by my house isn't T1 then, since I got over 1.4 Mbps, huh?

So, does that mean if I've seen 2.1-2.2 Mbps, backhaul has already been upgraded to NV-quality? Our local towers got some bandaid fixes a while back, and I knew that was part of it (because we were hitting 0.5 off peak times before)

If you are in an NV market, then probably yes. If you are not, then no. Sprint is doing maintenance upgrades in non NV markets adding backhaul. In places where they cannot get additional T1 lines timely, they are switching to AAV backhaul. When this occurs, you may get speeds over 2Mbps even in advance of Network Vision deployment.

 

This has occurred it about 10 sites around the ABQ area in the past six months or so. Its nice where you can get it.

West Michigan, so second round market. So no.

What's AAV backhaul? I've actually noticed improved speeds all over West Michigan (Grand Rapids/Kentwood specifically) for 3G, getting 2+ Mbps in areas that were previously overloaded.

    • 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.   
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
