very slow 3g internet speeds why?


Recommended Posts

I live in boca raton an tonight im waiting for the presidential debate so i decided to do some speeds test an cam across very slow speeds. This has been going on for a while but its getting worse. Is it because lte is being installed? Even though i have not seen evidence of it. What could be the reason. At the end of september i was getting 1 to 2.6 mbps now i get 0.14mbps-0.28mbps. I cant down load a movie with out wifi

How can this be a good thing?

 

When upgrades started on NV in the Chicago Market, you would see slower than even the slowest speeds before. Might mean upgrades have started in your area. There is one 4G tower relatively close to you. You should donate and become a sponsor, you can see the maps! :D

What should i look for when im looking at a sprint tower? Like how big are 4g lte pannels. Where should the modem or what ever u call it should it be behind the pannel? Also should there be a difference in the cabinet size at the bottom of the tower?

Once of the best example of legacy (skinny) vs. NV (large) panels that I have seen out there. More here.

whole shite thats a great pic. lol i kinda want to go look at some towers but i feel like i would be waisting my time. i heard people say deployment is under way in boca raton. but i live in west boca raton(more inland) and i only found one tower that was being upgraded to lte an i just happen to walk up to the tower an there were guys working on it an i asked if they were installing lte an they said yes but i didnt ask what carrier cause the one tower has several carriers on it

    • Some more interesting articles on Dish: https://www.fiercewireless.com/5g/dish-wireless-bakes-core-principles-infrastructure-chua https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/dish-eyes-5g-network-reliability-vericas-chaos-engineering-platform    
    • Financially makes sense, but may put them far behind T-Mobile and Verizon 5g marketing.  Could put them up against Dish if Dish gets their act together and starts their public network in Las Vegas in late February.
    • Fiercewireless put out an article today.  Sounds like AT&T wont get heavily started until later this year when equipment will be more available that supports both 3.45GHz and C-Band.
    • They are using DSS on B5 here, on one carrier. LTE-only on the other AFAIK. I kinda hope AT&T doesn't turn DSS on in markets where dropping H+ bumps them from 5x5 for everything else to 10x10. They have 10x10 of B14 and 5x5-10x10 of B12 to throw users on, and with the delays to their C-Band deployment due to waiting for gear their network is effectively LTE-only in many areas despite an increasing proportion of 5G phones. The network was doing just fine without the extra B5 bandwidth, so not a whole lot of reason to basically go backwards when they said they're dropping 3G to expand 5G.
