Sprint LTE Speedtests


Recommended Posts

So I was browsing the forums and I did not see a thread that kept track of the LTE speeds people were getting. Id post an LTE speedtest if I got it in my area, but sadly I do not. So post away guys, and lets see just how fast sprint is becoming! ;)

I got these back in September when I was out looking for some sites that had been upgraded.

Looks like the record has been set for most speed tests in 1 minute! ;-) Great speeds, though!

Yeah, this is probably a bad idea, and I will discuss with the staff the prospect of closing this thread. Otherwise, it will just encourage our membership to run needless speed tests, sucking up LTE throughput in a ridiculous e-penis measuring contest.

Okay, the thread is closed, pending further consideration. It may be reopened.

 

Regardless, folks, please use speed tests sparingly. Occasional use is fine, but know that speed tests can transfer upwards of 40 MB per use. If enough subs run speed tests frequently just to see how fast the network is, those speeds tests will frequently overlap. Thus, measured speeds will be lower just because of the number of subs running speed tests.

 

In other words, running lots of speed tests can actually be counterproductive to fast data speeds.

    • Here is how many competitive permits are "remaining" in each state after round 27: (bonus points: reply with the states/territories/districts that are already "settled".) AL 4 AR 1 AS 2 AZ 5 CA 2 CO 53 DE 2 FL 5 GA 48 GU 3 HI 3 IA 40 ID 19 IL 7 IN 19 KS 113 KY 22 LA 9 MA 3 MD 11 ME 1 MI 48 MO 54 MP 10 MS 27 MT 33 NC 12 ND 22 NE 8 NH 1 NJ 2 NM 26 NV 17 NY 6 OH 24 OK 9 OR 2 PA 2 PR 1 SC 12 SD 47 TN 17 TX 36 UT 23 VA 8 WA 22 WI 22 WV 2 WY 11
    • Almost 89% and $250 Million after round 27.
    • Pace picks up a bit.  Round 23.  About 86% now "uncontested" and $223 Million total.  Down to 159 licenses without bids.

Basically Money savings on 2.5 mostly rural auction are funding 600MHz purchases.  Also mentions continuing purchases of 2.5 outright. Likely understates the amount of MHz. Auction going slightly faster with 4 auction sessions per day now, but still less than 80% "settled".  After 18 rounds it is at $190 Million, with $400 to $800 Million expected. could go on for another month.  check here for updates about 1 hour after each round: https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
    • Yeah, I went up to Kitsap on Friday. Was able to connect to several n41 sites as SA only in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Silverdale.  However, I could not get any throughput.  It would say Mobile Data Suspended.  n41 NSA would throughput just fine. Was pushing 500-800 Mbps. I don't know if it was the network at the time or my device causing the failure for data throughput. It was the exact same result on every site I connected to.  I'm on a normal Tmo Postpaid SIM.  Nothing unusual.  LG V60. Robert n41 SA   n41 NSA
