What's your speed like RIGHT NOW?


Recommended Posts

 

They gave you a F-... That's not good for anyone LOL

 

I'm a straight A student. So I don't run speed tests on Sprint 3G. I can't stand the failing grades. :lol:

Sprint's network enhancement website states that the tower closes to me recently had a data speed upgrade LOL

 

The speed upgrades listed on network.sprint.com are temporary band aid improvements in front of Network Vision. They are just additional T1 lines. Which don't add much for speed at sites that are already way over capacity.

I sit about 250ft. away from a Sprint tower at my office. My Photon shows 5 bars of 3g, no 4g here, just legacy wimax.

Usually get anywhere from 700kbps - 1.3mbps down and 75kbps - 300kbps up.

At home its less, usually 400kbps - 600kbps down and 25kbps - 150kbps up.

I had an Evo3d before the Photon, needed repair and was backordered by about a month, that thing would only get half the speed. I've been finding that the antenna on the Photon is better, reception and transmitting. Might have been that my Evo3d had more wrong on it than just the touchscreen but i'd rather have the Photon, even with oodles of ROMs available for the 3d.

Thanks for the info. And :welcome: to the forums!

That seems to be the general consensus, that the Photon had great radios in it. Motorola in general is regarded as getting great signal. It is kinda surprising that the Epic 4G Touch is seen as Sprint's top dog when the Photon is a world phone and seems to pick up better signals. I guess thin wins, and the screen on the E4GT wins as well.

I had a choice between waiting on backorder, Photon, or E4GT. I've become partial to my qHD screens, can't go back.

 

I was not impressed with the evo 3d screen except for the 3d function

Used to at least be ok on weekends. Now even sunday afternoons are useless.

Your 3G speeds are much better than i have in pahrump. I barely hit 100k down ever.

Well I guess I spoke too soon about Pahrump data speeds. I just got home at 5:30 this morning for those that were in the chat room last night and knew I was traveling. It's been almost a month since I was home last, so this is a major improvement. over what I used to have.

 

OK, for some reason it won't let me post pics from my computer. Argh! The average speed between the 3 tests I took over a half hour period was 778 down, with the fastest being 808 down and slowest being 739 down

Nope. Noon speeds aren't even hitting 300 down. And pings are terrible right now too. But it is still better than it used to be. Most days I couldn't even hit 100 down during the day.

And a slight signal increase too. My normal 1 bar to 2 bars is now 1 to 3. I'm starting to be happier with Sprint.

Weird. They show up on my computer.

I'll just post the box.com share links.

Dropbox shouldn't be password protecting my files unless they weren't in my public folder. I'll have to check it out later.

    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — — The old permit expired for this site without any work being done but a new permit was just approved a few days ago for a T-Mobile site at this address. Description mentions 3 antennas with 2 RRUs per sector. My guess is they're doing something similar to what they did at 360 Furman St in Brooklyn where they broadcast Band 2/66 and n25/41 from one antenna. It's a bit of a downgrade considering the site it's replacing was a full build with Ericsson 6449s. 
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
