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" :

- - - 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.

    • 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
