Just turned on my cdma/lte mode and it connected. I'm only getting 0.5Mbps down and 1Mbps up

I can only get like .5 average and peaks up to .6 with the air rave but it might also be because AT&T caps uverse Internet at 1.5 Mbs up

When I had my airave I used to get 2.5Mbps down and 1.2Mbps Up but it was only if I picked a Chicago server

What part of Detroit are you in? I'm in Southwest Detroit and still get the normal 3G signal, no eHRPD signal

You may have to cycle through airplane mode for it to appear. Also verify that you are in CDMA/LTE mode. It will not work in CDMA only mode.

I just switched to airplane mode then back and still the EvDo stuff. Tried a reboot and still no eHRPD so maybe it's not in all of detroit yet, just parts. But it's good to see our 3G speeds getting better here.

I'm actually in Southfield, MI and I've had a connection to eHRPD pretty much wherever I've been over the past couple of days.

I believe the first tower site in all of Michigan (east or west) that was scheduled for upgrade was in Southfield. Haven't seen it on any of the accepted site reports yet. Maybe next week...

Hello,

 

I was looking at the sensorly maps for sprint and notice that they have two a "4G" and a "wimax." However, I'm thinking maybe they have the maps labeled wrong. It was to my understanding that Wimax was only rolled out in the western side of Michigan. Yet, the link below shows it in various areas in eastern Mi. Lastly, some of those areas were listed to be going to LTE first hence my suspicsion that maybe Michigan/Detroit is seeing LTE and the maps are logging it as wimax??

Is there anyone on Sprint with a LTE phone that could enlighten me if they did deploy Wimax to the area or is this LTE.

Yes they have WIMAX in all kinds of places. Even little podunk towns you've probably never heard of. These are spectrum protection sites.

Detroit has had WiMax Protection sites active for almost 2 years. The coverage you are seeing in Detroit on Sensorly is definitely WiMax and not LTE.

Yeah.... Both AT&T and Verizon have LTE have in Detroit. Sprint better show some activity here soon or my Note II will be on another carrier.

Premier sponsors have access to the maps with the latest known schedule, that is the best information out there. Regular sponsors can see tower maps and a map of sites accepted as complete by Sprint. I'd be shocked if you saw a Sprint LTE signal in Detroit by the time the Note 2 drops. I'm over in Lansing, I'll have my Note 2 on Sprint and happily search out the LTE signals as they come online in the next few months.

 

As digiblur said, do what you have to do if you are unhappy with Sprint's service

 

Can I make a suggestion that this thread be renamed to Network Vision/LTE - East Michigan (Detroit/Flint/Ann Arbor/Saginaw)? Then merge http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/2262-ehrpd-live-in-detroit-mi/ into the thread?

Merged with another Detroit thread and renamed. Thanks.

I'm really hoping for some fast movement here. Would like to get a new Galaxy S3 sooner rather than later. :)

I'm also hoping LTE comes quickly. These 3G speeds are just so terrible.

I get the newer CDMA-eHRPD connection and occassionally get up to .79-1.0Mbps down with .68 up and ping as low as 97ms. These numbers are very rare though as it is usually more like .32Mbps down and .68-.83 up and pings in the 230-350 range. Just give me the LTE i am paying for along with the 4G (wimax) i paid for on devices for over 2 years and never saw. May have to sacrifice unlimited data for speed when the soon ending contract is up. Who really needs unlimited data anymore with all of the wi-fi connections everywhere

I think I can wait for LTE that's faster than most free WiFi connections.

Pretty sure, I saw some towers with the beginnings of NV on my way to Monroe and back this morning. Got a few speed tests over 1mbps with sub 100 ms pings with going 75mph down the freeway.

 

I'll pinpoint the tower I got the best view of when I'm back at a pc. It was near Milan

 

Edit In: So I looked at the Sponsor maps and unless the schedule changed (which I hope it did) I might just be really quality Legacy Sprint. However, I'm sure I saw the new panels and RRUs. I noticed them coming up to the tower, that's why I did the speed test.

 

The tower is on US23, just past the Willow Rd overpass, east side of the highway

I know the speeds in Monroe are horrible but Dundee speeds are better and more consistent except in my plant.

    • Sprint still hasn't finished El Paso?!? I know there are a few sites that haven't been touched in West Texas (SW of Monahans and between Van Horn and Fort Stockton), but if this site is in the immediate El Paso area, then this is just....😐.
    • Sure thing, let us know if you need help troubleshooting. They don't make a decent off the shelf model, and probably won't until whatever 5g is rolls out in 202?. These are probably the most comparative to off the shelf in price and function.

      Like building anything, do some reading, ask some questions and it should go pretty smooth.

      Sometimes they need a reset or a firmware upgrade, but that is something you will not get out of Netgear often; i.e. I use an unlocked AT&T branded mr1100 nighthawk. It has received a couple updates, but they don't do much to add functionality. It still camps on low bands, band selection or combinations are non existent, and it has a real fussy ethernet port. Cost me 200 bucks. I put together a 3 carrier capable modem and router for 249 and it does all of these things, and does not require carrier support for updates.

      I get regular firmware updates for both LTE modems(Telit, Sierra Wireless) and the routers(openWRT, ROOTer, modem manager). I am mesh networking a couple right now to boot. 
    • using a GS9 in London now. Spent the $25 for a week of high speed data. 5 days in and I'm almost at 2GB so for high data usage its better to go this way than keep open world. The main network for Sprint is O2. I think I connected to Vodafone once so far. I do have problems connecting once in a while and dropping to HSPA. Speeds are slow but I think this is due to not having all the bands on the GS9 and not having CA for the Bands I have. Haven't gone past 15Mbps download.    I also brought my Essential phone and put an EE sim card in. they are known as the biggest and fastest LTE network. They use band 7 which is also 2600mhz and when i connect to that and/or CA I've seen speed over 100mbps. on the glaxy on O2 I haven't seen faster than 15mbps
    • Oh I didn't know. But it's definitely Alcatel-Lucent in Boston. Also I think he's talking about in NYC, another Nokia/ALu market.
