My latencies (ping times) have gone through the roof in the last few months. Any ideas? Any of you have this lately?

These are just now:

Those are relatively high, but since the throughput is high, I would believe the issue could be at the Core. If the airlink was the cause, the throughput would be down lower too. Is this consistent across several speed test servers? Because I sometimes have this problem with this one server that I like to use most often for AT&T. It will be that way for a week or so, then go back to normal. But other servers will be fine.

Who care your speeds are very high.

Latency is I think more important than huge download speeds.

This this this. I have download speeds of around 10+ right now but my latency has sucked. Normally above 200 or 300 on my home ISP. My pages load like they're on dial up.

Could it be any issue with the backhaul? I have seen my own internet be fine with download , and upload, but latency is 5x higher than normal.

Sprint has consolidated certain markets down to share MSCs so that they can upgrade some of the other MSCs. This is causing increased latency and backend capacity issues all over the place.

I suspect that your increased latencies are related to your needlessly massive screenshots that you posted.

Moo. I just upload to imgur and post.

 

Anyway, it happens regardless of test server, though I didn't want to just bang away at the speed tests. This is happening all over this area. Great speeds, crap pings. Here's a few days ago:

What is it with you and saying Moo? Anyway, since you're using Imgur then it's super easy to use smaller pics. Just click the "Large Thumbnail" button to the right and it'll do the hard part for you.

Finally someone asks about the cow reference as an indicator of exasperation.

 

Anyway, I don't see how the image size matters. Additionally, I do not see that option in the app.

Oh I thought you were using the website since I didn't see the Tapatalk signature.

The image size matters.  Overly large images in a forum are obnoxious and cause lots of scrolling.  I have a 19" laptop screen and one of your screen shots doesn't fit top to bottom.  Too big!

Ok interesting. I will work out a way to fix. On mine it scales. didn't know it didn't on all.

I know how frustrating it is. The LTE latencies in my home area have consistently been 110ms or higher @ RSRP -80dBm, even at 2AM.  If I travel to Asheville or Charlotte, NC, I see latencies of 75ms or less.  I used to think it was the Greenville, SC MSC, but Asheville uses the Greenville MSC too.

Think Sprint DDC's too, not just MSC's.

These images should be cut in half sizewise now.  On this machine I cannot see the difference due to it still scaling with this low resolution display (1024x768 on old Thinkpad X61 tablet).  Please let me know if it made any difference.  I used HTML code to shrink them in half both ways.

Much better  Thanks.

Take it from someone who does not have huge download speeds...YOU'RE WRONG!

I love to disagree with JoeJoeJoe. Its one of my favorite pastimes. However, he's right in this instance. But it all really depends on what you're doing.

 

Throughput matters more when you're downloading/transferring large files. Then latency (so long as it isn't insanely bad) is not as important. Who cares if a file that will take 10 minutes to download starts an extra second later? However, if it can be done in 5 minutes instead of 10, then that's a good thing.

 

However, for most things done on a smartphone, it is small amounts of data sent and called for frequently. And for these things, lower latency is better. And higher latencies can really make it feel sluggish. Even if your throughput is 30Mbps.

 

Ideally, latency under 80ms and throughput above 3Mbps and your smartphone feels fantastic for most things. And if you're used to a latency of 75ms and it doubles to 150ms...you're likely going to notice. Because everything you do online will take double the time for the internet to start responding to what you're doing.

So I'm getting real bad speeds on a tower I connect to frequently here in Wichita, KS. It seems like the tower I connect to never gets faster than .1 down or up in Mbps. I heard that they're upgrading the tower's backhaul but this is pretty bad. Any ideas? PM me if you need specifics.

You might say that Kevin Fitchard is at it again. The following was his tweet in reference to the Fierce Wireless story:

 

Sprint continues to post weakest network latency scores @FierceWireless: http://t.co/4Inel4iq5C
https://twitter.com/kfitchard/status/445634835961225216I do not know why he insists on highlighting something ostensibly negative about Sprint. He clearly has an axe to grind.Of course, maybe Phil Goldstein is to blame. Fierce Wireless ran a full four major operator comparison article, which is linked earlier in this thread. But for some reason, Phil felt the need to write a separate article, pointing out that Sprint had the highest latencies of the four. Why that article was even necessary, I do not know.These guys just love to rip on Sprint. They really should be ashamed.AJ

    • TNX lets you use SA; Sprint SIMs are NSA-only. Not 100% certain on whether NR CA is TNX-only; I'm personally not seeing it here but that may just be a network thing.
    • Got my (unlocked, directly from Samsung) S21 in at 3:50p today, along with the Qi charger (which includes a 25W wall charger!) and Buds+. The Sprint SIM from my S20 worked fine in the S21, though when activating I was prompted with an "are you sure you don't want to get a T-Mobile SIM for this?" message, probably because I'm on TMo towers 100% of the time when in Austin (if I was in Fredericksburg it'd be majority 312-250). Seems like the radio in the S21 is a bit stronger; I'm at the edge of n41 coverage at my kitchen table and was able to pull a few Mbps more than I recall getting on the S20. Additionally, upload speeds seem better on n71; was able to hit 40 Mbps pretty easily where the S20 would hit 30-35. I'm not seeing NR CA, but I'm not sure whether that's a limitation of the Sprint SIM or whether it just hasn't been turned on here.
    • Yep it was enabled across the board with android 11/One ui 3.0 update. It also enabled N66. I just got the s21 Ultra, and am curious to test if N30 is enabled or if I can enable it
    • SCP is crashing several times a day now on the newest Android update. I've been hitting the send info button when it crashes. Hopefully there's something helpful.
    • So I just got my S21 Sprint from Samsung.  Stick with ROMAHOME or go full TNX?  Any advantages?
