Which data type will better reflect LTE strength?


Recommended Posts

I'm noticing in my house, my CDMA signal strength is -100dBm, whereas my eHRPD is high 70s-low 80s. Anyone know which connection type will be more similar to LTE? I'm hoping its eHRPD. Lol

The highest of the two will likely determine whether you get a usable LTE signal or not. Your 1x signal is probably weaker because the carriers colocated with the EVDO carrier you're on probably have a worse EC/LO ratio than the one your phone chose.

The better of the two is the more likely indicator. However, it will be the final LTE signal after full deployment. Because a distant site that gets upgraded first may be the initial signal that reaches your home. And it may be very weak.

 

But whenever the site that the eHRPD signal is coming from gets upgraded, you will likely have a pretty solid LTE signal.

Anyone know the difference between EvDo RevA:6 and EvDo RevA:8?

 

The difference is 2. And the sum would be 14.

 

Sorry, I could not resist...

 

:P

Haha. Is there not a difference other than 2? Does one pull faster speeds? Only reason I ask is because aosp ROMs on my gsiii connect to the 6 one, while Touchwiz connects to the 8. I don't know what the difference is, really and I don't see any noticeable difference in them other than 2.

I figured I'd post this. This is upstairs in my house, looks like my home is made out of something that interferes with the RF.

 

I wouldn't mind seeing how fast LTE is upstairs, compared to downstairs. (Downstairs, I get around what's in the OP.)

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
