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

    • One more thing.. I just took a photo of a random glass on my counter in low light with both phones with no modifications to the stock camera settings.  The difference is night and day.  The photo taken with the Note looks crisp. Details are sharp. The dim scene is brightened beautifully.  Even the curtains in the background remain sharp and clear even when zoomed in.  The Pixel 7 Pro attempt at the same photo is laughable.  Blurrycam UFO type horrendous.  Did I get a faulty device?  This thing is horrific.  Something seems waaaay off.  
    • I received my P7 Pro 2 days ago and - coming from my Note 10 plus - I absolutely hate it!  I didn't expect to hate it so much but even the screen looks grossly inferior to my Note 10+ even though I know that makes no sense, at least on paper.  But I'm holding them side by side right now and the Pixel 7 Pro display looks grainy and borderline blurry compared to my several year old Note 10+.  What's going on here??  I toggled on full resolution thinking that would change things but....no.  the screen just looks awful.  Also...is there a way to mirror the Pixel 7 Pro to your smart tv without WiFi?  I've always done this with my Samsung phone. I thought allcast would be able to help out with that but it seems to not even function with this phone.  I'm about to smash this damn thing against the wall but I can't because I need it in one piece so I can return it ASAP to Best Buy.  I've honestly never been so wildly disappointed in a device.  Definitely going to switch it for the S22 Ultra. I don't understand the hype with this device.  Other than instant Android updates (which may not be the best idea after all) ...I can no longer see the allure.  
    • Any word on how SCP works with lineageos 19 on a oneplus nord n200 5g? Alternatively, how does the modem option work with rooted Android 11 on the same device? Maybe it has been depreciated in the past given the APIs. But since those are failing with NSA was planning to revisit the rooted modem options.
    • It doesn't include T-Mobile because AT&T objected to the T-Mobile applications.  The fact that anything at all was filed will add time. - Trip
