Signal Strength


Recommended Posts

I am currently on eHRPD at home ranging between -85 to -95 dBm. So I am curious about signal strength and the distance it can travel for every band Sprint has. I have 2 towers both about 2-3 miles away from me. How far can 800, 1900, and 2500 approximately reach. I know it varies due to landscapes and structures. Any information or sites regarding this would be appreciated. I like to learn.

I had to re read this twice... No question mark....? 1900 Ive seen stretch as far (and usable up to 8 miles... 10 is the max)  800 I would say 14-15.  2500/2600 about 3-5 miles.  This being no other towers around (JUST ONE for miles...)  This is my experience, and others could say differently but I think this is a fair estimate.

Well, I don't know the exact measurements but from what I've read, anywhere you get a 3G signal, you'll get an LTE 800 signal. (Evdo on 1900 is comparable to the coverage LTE 800 gives.). LTE 1900 is the standard and from what I hear, LTE 2600 actually is pretty boss on 20mhz channels, maintaining a super low, but usable signal at even -135dBm.

I've had 1900 voice carry from a site 14-15miles away with signal ranging from -95 to -105dbm, 800 voice from the same site is roughly 10dbm better

ya VOICE, but data.. good luck on that lol

 

I regularly get .5 from that site. 1x data is usable in emergencies. After a huge icestorm here I had to use it as my only internet for updates

    • Some more interesting articles on Dish: https://www.fiercewireless.com/5g/dish-wireless-bakes-core-principles-infrastructure-chua https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/dish-eyes-5g-network-reliability-vericas-chaos-engineering-platform    
    • Financially makes sense, but may put them far behind T-Mobile and Verizon 5g marketing.  Could put them up against Dish if Dish gets their act together and starts their public network in Las Vegas in late February.
    • Fiercewireless put out an article today.  Sounds like AT&T wont get heavily started until later this year when equipment will be more available that supports both 3.45GHz and C-Band.
    • They are using DSS on B5 here, on one carrier. LTE-only on the other AFAIK. I kinda hope AT&T doesn't turn DSS on in markets where dropping H+ bumps them from 5x5 for everything else to 10x10. They have 10x10 of B14 and 5x5-10x10 of B12 to throw users on, and with the delays to their C-Band deployment due to waiting for gear their network is effectively LTE-only in many areas despite an increasing proportion of 5G phones. The network was doing just fine without the extra B5 bandwidth, so not a whole lot of reason to basically go backwards when they said they're dropping 3G to expand 5G.
