LTE Signal question


Recommended Posts

Had great LTE at my house for a few weeks now, then last night all of a sudden it's back to 3G?? Any reason why they would stop broadcasting LTE?

Yes. They are working on it. In unlaunched areas you can expect the signal to come and go regularly.

Speak of the devil, LTE just turned back on but the signal fluctuates from full to one bar and vice versa. I'm gonna check out this site since it is down the road from me

You'll need to check out your RSRP values rather than relying on the signal bars.

 

This same thing has happened to me. My serving site for when I'm at work had been active with LTE for about a month now, but for the past week I haven't been able to get LTE.

You sound like me.  A site about 5 miles away from my work went active.  I could catch it just fine being on the 7th floor.  Worked awesome.  Week later it was gone.  Wait another week and it was back.  Week later it was gone and is still gone.  Another site about 3 miles away went active recently and works decent in the mornings with up to 12 megabit speeds at times.  But every day around 11am - 2pm'ish the site goes in the tank with 1x speeds with 5000+ms ping times.

Drove by the site a few minutes after my post, no one was working on it but my signal fluctuates between 3G and LTE. 3G signal is about -75 db and if I can getto the RSRP creen quick enough while its locked on LTE, the latter is about -106

That picture is great haha.

 

 

How do I check RSRP values on the 5? I knew on my galaxy nexus but not since I got the iPhone.

*3001#12345#* press send, and go from there while in an active LTE area. I can't remember which LTE field test menu has signal information.

Called sprint to ask about the tower near me...girl said it wasn't an LTE tower....and the nearest one was 4.1 miles away. I know it's an LTE site...cant miss the panels and RRU's. impossible that it isn't because I was getting full LTE at home and now I'm not. It'll fluctuate to -121 db and back to full signal 3G

if you aren't in an officially launched market they won't support or sometimes acknowledge that there is lte. If you go to sprints coverage maps do they have lte coverage on their map for you? If they don't, then they probably won't help you.

    • 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.
    • https://www.lightreading.com/5g/the-quiet-brilliance-of-t-mobiles-5g-spectrum-strategy/a/d-id/779589? 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
