Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

Recommended Posts

That's strange because all places I have been lately with 3G, it's been above average or better! They are prob in middle of updating so you are probably getting no to small connection if any!

In the places you were in. In the Bronx all along Jerome, 3G has been super slow and also has been LTE. Albeit the LTE was obviously better but it felt like 3G speeds.

 

Hmm maybe they're tweaking the sites. AlcaLu has to hurry and light up the gaps. These Yankees are killing me this season. :( lol

Is this happening on days where the Yankees are not playing or just on game night?

The minute after the game was over and I exited the stadium, I had an increase of 5 times the speed! .4 to 2.0

Game day in general when the crowds start gathering (of course).

 

I was eating at the diner on Gerard ave and wasn't checking but usually in the vicinity of my home and Joyce Kilmer park the connection is sub .5 Mbps with high pings.

I don't think pings make any difference regardless of how many people are using the network, on 4g at least. I had low pings at the stadium

Yankeeeeeees! I was at Brooklyn Boulders over the weekend and mapped out the area, plus a good 20 min trail going north on Atlantic.

How's browsing Web pages with low ping but low speeds? Decent?

Browsing the web with low speed but low ping is just as good if not better than browsing with high speed and high pings, cough cough T-Mobile.

Well then @ that point it would depend on how much data your requesting. If its something small...you would get it faster with lower pings...If its something larger, then you would be @ the knees of the actual throughput.

i did a side by side comparison Tmobile vs Sprint..both in decent signal areas. Even tho his max throughput was higher (15mb down on tmobile vs 10mb down on sprint) My phone always loaded every page and every video faster! 500 vs 30 pings really surprised him, but that's pretty much what I expected.

I was saying that increased usage of a tower does not affect the ping. 1 Mbps 30 ms ping is better then 10mbps and 600ms ping. For browsing that is.

Pretty much same here....Just got back from Cross County Shopping Center, 3G was unusable..

I check Sensorly the other day , A good majority of NYC is purple , Sprint just needs to fill in some blanks , add better coverage, convert more towers & improve the speeds & we should be good . Then they can start on the L.I market lol .

The Long Island market is nearly 1/4th complete. Whether there's LTE or not, idk.

Once you get 3G upgrades, your patience will no longer run out! I still wouldn't say 3G is good for streaming, but everything else is great!

You should consider upgrading to sponsorship so you can see exactly where NV upgrades are in LI, cause there is plenty..also on a side note i went to LI a couple of weeks ago..exit 49S..and had GREAT 3G speeds

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.
