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!

(Don't let AJ see that! ;-) )

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.

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.
