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...

    • Did my drive from PHX to SEA & got to experience the terribleness that is the totem lake area. Impressive, speed test didn't complete either time.
    • Weird that they'd go back to the Edge+. Would think they'd let folks use the S22 just like with Genesis. In other news, St. Louis has 10x10 n71 + n66 SDL live. A bit more info here:  
    • Wonder what other spectrum the auto industry can use, how much of the 5.9GHz was being used, and if 30MHz will be enough 20 or 30 years from now. The auto industry has had it for 20 years sure, but technology can move really slow.  It isn't good.  It isn't ready for real world applications. The hardware is too slow to be able to process enough reliable data. It is too expensive.  Etc. I would argue that we are just getting to the point where features that I would assume could use 5.9GHz are just now hitting mass market as the code is better, hardware is not only significantly faster but also cheaper. The baseline trim models still lack a lot of safety features but the next trim up usually comes with a bunch of goodies I'd assume could make use of 5.9GHz. Just imagine where we were in 2005, 2010, 2015.  Mostly just assumptions without enough knowledge of the spectrum use, so a hint of skepticism. With the what, 1.2GHz that opened up in the 6GHz range, getting 45MHz out of 5.9GHz is very meh.
    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
