LTE Speed Tests

Hey guys, I have been watching videos of sprints LTE speeds for about a year now. I don't have an LTE capable device, so I am just curious. What are some of your fastest speeds on LTE?

Current fastest possible speed is 37.5 mbps on a Sprint Phone.  No Tri-band phones to utilize the 2.5/2.6Ghz spectrum are available yet.  Users of Tri-band HotSpots have seen speeds in the 40-50mbps range when physically tethered to the hotspot.

Cool! I just want to see some pics of what the everyday user is getting so I know what to be ready for! Thanks for the info though!

Pics from an every day user would run the gamut from less than 1Mbps to 38Mbps. It depends on when, where, what device, signal strength and signal quality.

I have pulled 39.x mbps off the Sprint LTE network in Tulsa.  I understand that is past the theoretical limit.   I have never had an upload speed exceed 15.

Cool, cool. With my 3G right now I hardly exceed 1mbps... So I am getting excited to pick up my G2!

Yeah, once again, I just want to know what I could be seeing. Whether it is at school, home, work, travelling. I just want to know what I could be expecting.

I too have had a few 39Mbps speed tests. Even one hit 40Mbps in Waco.

Wow... I would be very pleased with those speeds! :)

6, if you have <-95dBm signal.

I don't know if you remember, but early on during NV's progress in Tulsa I was "plagued" with these 3G speed tests that ran in excess of 10mbps. Tulsa defies technological limits? Quite possibly.

I wish I had that 3G!! Did you test it on multiple servers??

It was a fluke, only happened a few times; 3 I believe.  When it happened it was PING/ long extended network pause/preamble? then a gargantuan surge of 3G data, in excess of 10mbps.  It did happen across multiple servers, Tulsa Perimeter and BTC Cable are two that i can recall for sure.  This is theoretically impossible, however when it did happen I was able to leave my location that it happened and locate NV crews within a few miles of the "surge".

I usually get 8 down and 7 up here in Atlanta.  And this is inside.  In densely populated Midtown.  Ran a speedtest just now and it was right inline with what I just stated.  Not bad for being indoors on a 5x5 deployment.  No video lag whatsoever....like, ever.

Awesome, because at my school, I only get 2 bars of 3G and get 0.2-0.6 down... And when I get my G2, I am hoping to be able to have decent LTE speeds so I can tether and actually use my phone with my friends... I am really glad to hear those types of speeds, especially since I am in a smaller town (around 20,000 people). Really looking forward to this.

I get anywherefrom 10-38 daily, depending on how far I am away. Usually around 105-120 it is equivalent to 3g, sometimes slower, but that is extreme edge cell signal.

Across from my neighborhood at -114 dBm on LTE, I got about 4Mbps down and 0.3 up.  Definitely worked well for everything I threw at it.  You don't really need anymore than a steady 1mbps for just about anything (even streaming video).  Pandora works fine for my ride and that's mostly what I care about. ;)

I have hit 18+ up, pretty sure 20+, have to find my speed tests.

I very rarely ever see my LTE speeds below 6mbps. I'm usually in the 8-25mbps range through town, with spike over 30mbps. Even with -110 to -114dBm signal, it will still hit 6mbps. My sprint LTE experience in Jax is awesome and usually faster than my Verizon service.

At my house I get pretty much that exact same speed on that kind of signal strength. I also get -95 to -105 dBm of NV 3G where I usually get <150 ms and <0.8Mbps down and up, and I'm still able to browse the internet and listen to Pandora acceptably quickly.

I tested my mother in law's LG OG the other night while setting up her Google account. This was inside my stucco house wrapped in wire frame, heavy insulation and triple pane windows at approximately 10 pm. I got 33.6 mbps down and somewhere around 9 mbps up. I was pretty happy since that blows my Comcast xfinity Internet out of the water. On 3G I have gotten over 2.5 mbps down and just at 1 mbps up. That's what I call "The Now Network".

On a recent trip to San Diego County from my home here in Las Vegas I got a variety of speeds thru-out North County: hit 30 Mbps at the junction of 215 with I15; about 5 down in Fallbrook; zero connect at Courtyard Marriott in Oceanside; about 3 down in San Marcos at Sycamore & the 78( this last one was with -92 dBm signal strength); SD is NOT yet launched but has come a long ways with LTE since my last trip in May;

    • 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.
