nv/lte/ehrpd question

if a site is not ehrpd enabled but still evdo reva for 3g data that most likely means the lte upgrades probably haven't started or turned on yet yes?...i'm curious since ehrpd data gets routed through the lte cores would this be a decent indicator?

The entire Sprint network has been eHRPD enabled now.  Even on legacy sites.  Is it just one site that you don't have eHRPD, or is it all of them?  It could be that eHRPD is down in your area.  Or it could be your device is not set in LTE mode.  Or it could be a problem with your device.

All day at work yesterday, I didn't get eHRPD at all.  Only EvDo Rev. A.  This was in Florence, Hartsville, and Darlington, SC.  Tried restarting the device several times, but no avail.  As soon as I got back to the first tower in the Charlotte Market, bam, eHRPD.  I think it may be a MSC issue.

it is my nearest tower that doesn't come up ehrpd.  other towers do come up ehrpd.  The ones in frederick city itself well...i'm glad if i can even make a call so data isn't a concern since it really doesn't work at all..:)

ive had that happen to me occasionally where it wont read ehrpd.. just show evdo.  no real signal degradation just occasionally it will show it.  i never understood why, it happens considerably less often when connected to a nv accepted site. than a site that hasnt hasnt. but occasionally it still shows it. 

 

currently for the month the breakdown is

 

82.1% ehrpd

14.7% evdoa

2.6% 1xrtt

and .6% n/a

 

 

i wonder... if im connected to a 1xrtt site for sprint, yet roaming on evdo on a different tower... if thats why im seeing the evdo and not ehrpd??

Last time I have seen (noticed) EVDO besides roaming was when I was on a small "partner" network (Carolina Wireless) in the Lake Lure NC area... That whole situation confused me because the Sprint maps showed either weak roaming or NO signal -- yet I was in "home" coverage.  (Makes me wonder how many more dead/roaming zones are actually "home" coverage out there)..

I go back to EVDO-A all the time for short periods.  However, I've never had it be only on one specific site.  When I revert back to EVDO-A, it will stay that way on any site I go to, until I reboot.

 

When this happens to me though, most of the time I think it's a device issue.  The device gets hung up on EVDO-A in lieu of eHRPD.  Because most of the time I look at the other devices in my house, they are still on eHRPD.  And vice versa.  Lots of times my wife's LGOG will revert to EVDO-A and my Note 2 is on eHRPD.  And I have verified by PN that we are both connected to the same site.  The one in our yard.   :hah:

I've been on Rev A going on 2 weeks now here in North San Diego. It seems to be that way in other locations in North San Diego also. I rebooted many times, and nothing changed.

when the first site in my area was accepted nv3g that site was only EVDO-A for two weeks before I guess they upgraded the software on it. I have also noticed for me that sometimes when my phone loses an LTE connection, my phone will connect EVDO-A and not connect back to LTE until the radio is cycled.

I jump back and forth from EV-DO Rev A and eHRPD all the time. I think the culprit is my airave, whenever I am in my home I stay on EV-DO Rev A and when I'm out and about it's usually eHRPD. I think the airave only broadcasts EV-DO Rev A because there really is no need for eHRPD, considering it's used for smooth hand offs between 3G and 4G and my airave isn't capable of 4G.

I did some driving around the county...most of them are solid evdo..I know of one near myersville that is lit w LTE and when I am outside of LTE range I am solidly ehrpd. My gnex actually will reliably toggle from evdo to ehrpd and back on its own...never thought my frankenphone would be good for war driving but it is...

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
