Three Days in the Waco 4G LTE FIT & S4GRU Planned Articles


S4GRU

Recommended Posts

I spent three days here in the Waco 4G LTE FIT. Lots of things to share. Will be writing an article about it all tomorrow. I also concluded LTE radio performance testing. The radio performance articles are also coming up soon too. We also will have an Austin market update article tomorrow and the NV Sites Complete update. Big week planned at S4GRU.

 

Stay tuned. Today, I'm driving back to Northern New Mexico. Where the weather is 15 degrees cooler and the humidity is half.

NV Sites Complete map will include the first SF Bay and PR/VI sites accepted by Sprint. Also will include a hefty update of LTE sites in the Chicago. Also, the biggest Kansas week ever, with a couple of new cities. Exciting week.

Did you get a chance to test 12124 on the S3?

 

I finally found the one tower in New Braunfels with 4g last night.

 

Overall impressed with the signal properties of NV towers on the 3G side. I had to use 3G at the hotel since I refuse to use open wifi without my VPN connection up at home. Even the wife didn't use wifi.. As she told me she doesn't use any that are unlocked. And I thought she just ignored my random tech ramblings.

I'd help with your testing, but I haven't yet rooted. Maybe soon.

 

+1 on the VPN. I won't use any public (encrypted or not) wifi without my VPN.

 

Don't think you need to root, and but you do need your MSL code. Easily obtainable from a Sprint rep.

I cannot get a 4G LTE signal on 12124 either. Just goes right to eHRPD. Bummer.

Not a bummer. That's awesome! It's fixable.

Wait is the nv sites complete being updated today or tomorrow?

 

Tomorrow. I'm driving down US 287 through Wichita County, Texas at 80 MPH.

Same here on the speed. And no one in TX knows how to use their cruise control! 70..75...80..78..75..

 

I see why people are frustrated with LTE coverage. On my way back through Houston I only picked up LTE on both phones for a very short period of time, maybe a mile or so.

Tell me about it. I can't run cruise control. Speed up, slow down.

 

The Viper and GNex were much better at picking up LTE on their own in my testing. GS3 was definitely better than the EVO LTE though. The EVO LTE was very difficult to keep connected to fragile signals.

 

Seemed like the EVO LTE would only connect on its own if we were stationary or stayed in LTE coverage with a strong signal for several minutes.

Yes, I believe they still have some work to do on the scanning on the LTE.

 

I would probably be in the sprint store a lot if I was in a well covered area and it kept disconnecting and had a S3 to compare it to.

So u wouldn't recommend the evo 4G then?

 

I wouldn't, if I lived in an active Sprint LTE market. My wife was so annoyed with her EVO LTE compared to the other LTE devices. She was blissfully ignorant until she was seeing the side by side LTE performance for four days.

 

I believe the EVO LTE will still get better and better with each OTA. However, I believe my wife would have shot me had it not had the latest OTA.

    • Pace picks up a bit.  Round 23.  About 86% now "uncontested" and $223 Million total.  Down to 159 licenses without bids.
    • https://www.lightreading.com/5g/the-quiet-brilliance-of-t-mobiles-5g-spectrum-strategy/a/d-id/779589? Basically Money savings on 2.5 mostly rural auction are funding 600MHz purchases.  Also mentions continuing purchases of 2.5 outright. Likely understates the amount of MHz. Auction going slightly faster with 4 auction sessions per day now, but still less than 80% "settled".  After 18 rounds it is at $190 Million, with $400 to $800 Million expected. could go on for another month.  check here for updates about 1 hour after each round: https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
    • Yeah, I went up to Kitsap on Friday. Was able to connect to several n41 sites as SA only in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Silverdale.  However, I could not get any throughput.  It would say Mobile Data Suspended.  n41 NSA would throughput just fine. Was pushing 500-800 Mbps. I don't know if it was the network at the time or my device causing the failure for data throughput. It was the exact same result on every site I connected to.  I'm on a normal Tmo Postpaid SIM.  Nothing unusual.  LG V60. Robert n41 SA   n41 NSA
    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
