This is my averages (as seen below in the pics) the lowest I have ever gotten is 9mps dowload and the lowest ive gotten for upload is 1.50mps up. The highest download ive gotten once is 13.98 down and 1.85up. The cloest server to me is Rochester ny (about 30miles away) and Syracue server sometimes reads better and that is the second cloest to me (about 70miles away.Screenshots_Screenshot_2013-04-07-19-54-28.pngScreenshots_Screenshot_2013-03-27-13-37-27.png

You are a lucky guy. To have fast WiMax like that for the whole time you've been with Sprint must be amazing!

Welcome Teh S4GRU :D.

And damn you're connected to a tower 30+ miles away getting those speeds?!?!?!?

 

He's 30 miles from the speed test server, not the tower.

Yes right on! I don't think I've heard many people getting constant speeds like I do that high, but hey I could be wrong.

I'm thinking I wish WIMAX was here in Fort Wayne lol.

Thats good for a big city like Atlanta! I am NOT bragging about how great my speeds I am getting but at least they are CONSISTANT. Its a decent alternative for when Iam out and about and not near wifi.

Its because people are getting lte phones and bandwidth is opening up! if i go to an area that has it i get 12-14 down and almost 2 up.

WiMAX is in Fort Wayne. Clear operates three license protection sites.

 

See for yourself...

I'm actually lucky, myself. Clearwire has a license protection site deployed no less than 2 miles from where I live. Also, Sprint users are forbidden from accessing it. Using CLEAR 4G service with it (which was a challenge to get, since they wouldn't sell to me normally), I get some decent speeds.

I've had a few WiMax Protection Sites that I could not authenticate with and get a data connection. I've always wondered if Clearwire users would have had the same problem, or if it was a network authentication issue that some sites were not configured correctly.

 

Also, with the OG EVO and Epic 4G, you could not connect to a Protection Site while the device was roaming. Originally, it was set up with WiMax that some part of the authentication cycle on Sprint devices used the Sprint network. No 1x Sprint connection, meant no WiMax connection. It was OK to lose Sprint native coverage after connecting, but if you weren't connected to the Sprint network when trying to acquire a WiMax connection, then you could forget it.

 

Later WiMax devices like the EVO 3D and Motorola Photon did not have this issue. And I believe the OG EVO and Epic were fixed in a later OTA that allowed them to connect to WiMax regardless of any other connection.

I've verified with the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch and the Motorola Photon. Clearwire is actively blocking Sprint connections to the Clearwire protection site here. I was never sure if that was intentional or not, but I benefited from it quite nicely (I ran a server through a CLEAR Stick Atlas for months, since I was literally the only user who could access the site).

    • Almost at 76% licenses "sold" at $160 million. Like watching paint dry.  Will check again in a few days. 
    • I guess we'll see how many takers there are for this: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-08-04/dish-nears-launch-of-mobile-service-taking-on-at-t-and-verizon One early drawback to the Boost Infinite service is that, for now, subscribers will need to buy a $900 Motorola Edge+ phone to get connected to Dish’s new network. More phones that are compatible with the system are expected in the third quarter, Dish told analysts Wednesday. Registration Site: https://www.boostinfinite.com I remember when Virgin Mobile went iPhone-only: https://techcrunch.com/2017/06/21/virgin-mobile-goes-iphone-only-offers-a-year-of-service-for-1/ That didn't go so well.
    • Hey Mike    Ya I was the one that brought the issue to your attn for the color thing on my 6T like 3-4 years ago   that was fixed after like 6 months  and I never had any issues with that anymore till the 1st  Android/OxygenOS 12 update but it hasn't done that anymore (that i've seen lately)   it just doesn't give me the  signal strength much anymore  it'll show it for like 5 mins then  switch to  "--"  and stay that way  Sometimes if I close it out and reopen it  it'll come back (tho the icon is delayed showing up for like a min  or so when it used to show up instantly) but after a few mins it's back to showing "--" again and other times it'll just come back to the "--"
    • Sounds like an awesome project—keep us posted on how it’s going! Also—if you’re able to figure out logging, I can work with you to get the data uploaded to SignalCheck. 
    • Yesterday, I saw a post on Facebook from an old friend about the Evolve III Maestro, a $60 laptop (at Micro Center) that apparently has an LTE modem in it.  Specifically, the Quectel EC25-AF*.  The nearest Micro Center was sold out of new ones, but offered open box at $48.  So for $51 after tax, I walked out this morning with one.  An absolute steal. I backed up the Windows product key and then put Kubuntu 22.04 on it.  I spent a lot of time today trying to get the build tools installed so I could get the wifi module installed and running, and once I did that, I pretty quickly got to sending it modem commands, which I've never done before.  I don't have a SIM in it yet, but it does seem to function as it should.  (I figured out the command to get Timing Advance values out of it, but without a SIM, I doubt it would have such values.) Now I'm trying to puzzle out how to write some kind of script or small program to use it for logging purposes.  I think I've worked out how to send commands to it from bash using socat, but I need to pick specific commands to run.  I'd actually like to replace some of my phones with this if I can get it to record cells, with GPS, and cycle through a set of bands repeatedly.  My current phone collection consists of 9 phones other than my main S21FE, and they require babysitting while I'm logging.  It'd be nice to pare that down to a more reasonable number and let the computer do the work, hopefully in the back seat with less babysitting. - Trip ===== * Per the spec sheet, it supports B2/4/5/12/13/14/66/71.  That'd cover all of Verizon and US Cellular LTE, all but B29/30 on AT&T, and all but B41 and Sprint Keep on B26 for T-Mobile.
