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.

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


Sorry, I could not resist...





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.)

    • More on Super Bowl preparations here: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl Verizon: That said, Verizon will have some hefty gear on hand if it needs to use it, like THOR, the Tactical Humanitarian Operations Response vehicle, as well as THOR’s Hammer and the Mobile Utility Technology Transport (MUTT) police cruiser. Very cool… AT&T: Like Verizon, AT&T is bringing all the tools at its disposal to serve fans and public safety customers during the big game. That includes a flying cell on wheels (COW) and a robotic dog.   There’s a ton of detail on AT&T’s network build here. Great read!
    • This means a significant number of people feel Dish will never pay them back. Dish should have borrowed more money sooner at lower rates.  T-Mobile has been much smarter at this during this merger period.
    • Dang.  Is there I way we can directly get in on that for the next one if Dish is gonna be paying 11.75%?
    • T-Mobile has been building out new rural sites for the last 6-8 months. It may not be as noticeable elsewhere, but we have had 40+ new sites come online in Nebraska. There have been new builds in Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri as well. If you change the site data to display hex values on Cellmapper, look for sites that begin with 05D, or 062 - 063. Those are new sites in the last 6 months.
    • New Vertical Bridge site built for Tmobile near Red River Gorge area.  Maybe T-Mobile is starting to build out new sites and colos in rural areas now...   https://imgur.com/a/Tv3Ge0w
