Slow day for me. I usually get around 5 down average at my house. Go a few blocks down and i  get 20 mbps down often.

i get about 1.5Mbps down and at least 768K upload on sprint. home ISP is Time warner with the 30/5 package. when or if sprint ever launches LTE here on 1900MHz it would probably be faster but just because the upload would be faster.

now that i think about it i am questioning the relevance of this topic. maby once or IF sprint ever gets into the wireless broadband industry seriously that we can start comparing coverage and speeds to other home ISPs i think this would be a great thread. but right now? hmmm im not so sure.

 

OP im not bashing you or anything its just i think this thread should be saved for the future of "if" or "when" sprint becomes a serious ISP. it is interesting to think about though.

I'm using a Netgear LTE Gateway 6100D and Sprint as my ISP until TWC gets up off their ass and repairs the damaged cable feed from the curb to my house. This is a speed test on B41, the tower is about a mile and a half from meeqa9ugyg.jpg

Awesome to see that Nethgear in action. Try ookla speedtest, tends to be a bit more accurate due to closer servers. that ping time is definitely not quite right.

Did you purposely post a speed test from Tmo from 4 years ago?

Woah, not sure what happened there. :P

If you click on it it'll show the correct speedtest...

EDIT: Tapatalk isn't letting me edit the other post, so here's the correct image:

My home ISP = AT&T DSL...just waiting on something better to come along (likely, years from now - even with fiber  under my drive...)

Sprint band 25 (no 41/26 near me..but I do have a couple 41/26 tests...41 from Atlanta and 26 from McComb, MS)

This is from my home in Grand Rapids:

 

Comcast Residental Cable Internet :

AT&T dry-loop DSL for Business, now-rebranded "Uverse" :

3828543174.png

 

 

- - - Wireless - - -

 

My Sprint LG G3, on -90dbm of Band 26 LTE :

0.32mb down, 1.16mb up

 

 

My T-Mobile Nexus 5, on AWS LTE :

20.04mb down, 11.89mb up

 

I don't know if this counts or not, since it isn't my device. But a friend has been playing with his new iPhone 6 on Verizon here, and we got their "XLTE" AWS LTE service around the beginning of this year:

114.91mb down, 31.22mb up

Local DSL provider (Iserv): 0.64Mbps up / 0.34 Mbps down / ping 49 ms

 

Band 24 (@ around -112 dBm): 2.13 Mbps up / 0.22 Mbps down / ping 87 ms

 

3G (@ around -83 dBm): 0.54 Mbps up / 0.23 Mbps down / ping 96ms

 

DSL is the *only* option (other than satellite) for broadband in my neighborhood. The local ISP was the only one that would offer DSL to my house at the time, and they warned me not to expect top of the range speeds, as I was at the limit of distance from the CO. I signed up anyway, and have had excellent service from them. The funny part is, they resell service over AT&T's line, who had told me that DSL was unavailable in my area; 18 months later, I started to get spammed relentlessly by AT&T, wanting me to switch to *their* DSL :blink: . Just one more reason to hate AT&T.

Well... My home ISP is through my little Sierra 250U modem (yes I know, I should upgrade to the router, but don't have the extra $$ at the moment) since I live out in the middle of no where, where there is no cable or DSL available... maybe someday. Lets just say I'm VERY thankful for Sprint!  :D

 

So this is what I get through my Sierra 250U modem & Cradlepoint MBR95 router:

And here is my LG G3 at a -79 signal on B26:

your upload speed is faster than your download speed in every instance? thats weird.

    • Interesting, T-Mobile is demolishing a Sprint B25-only site that even Sprint wasn't using anymore. Sprint moved from that pole to a former Clearwire site on a nearby much taller mast but never demolished this original site. Up through 2021, there was still power to this site. Some time during COVID, the lights on the RRUs were no longer lit.  https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/ENR24-01067/Kirkland Streetview 
    • I noticed that on my Boost line. I ended up mapping some 2G on Cellmapper because of that lol. Looked like it would connect to T-Mobile 2G for a bit and then disconnect and show no signal. Thankfully it's back up and running.
    • Outside expert explanations of AT&T outage: https://www.lightreading.com/mobile-core/at-t-s-outage-twists-up-its-mwc-story
    • Service just restored in Columbus Ohio on AT&T network.  They seemed to do it in the following order: business (done early) then 5g hours later then ADSL and 4g about 4 hours after business. Then texting and wifi calling that was not setup before. At one point they were trying to route calls on T-Mobile 2g, but that failed.
    • Nationwide AT&T outage occurring right now affecting all of their brands, MVNOs, and even FirstNet. Although this kind of outage is rare, I bet Verizon and T-Mobile are both gonna try to use this to pull First Responders to their network or at least consider them for backup services. https://www.theverge.com/2024/2/22/24079910/att-network-outage-sos-mode
