Channel Order on Zing Hotspot

Recommended Posts

I know on the Zing hotspot you can go into advanced setup and change the preference order on channels, i.e. B25, B26 and B41.


I am slightly over a mile from the Sprint tower that serves my area.  B25 is always ON, but you can choose to give it a order of 1, 2 or 3.  

Since I am using it a home (we have no alternative to internet service, except satellite) what is the recommended order for the 3 channels?  Which channel should be 1st; which channel should be 2nd; and which channel should be 3rd?


Thanks for your replies.

I would think Band 41, then Band 25 then Band 26 in that order.


Edit: The reasoning behind my suggestion is because you definitely want to be on Band 41 whenever possible due to there being more capacity and higher speeds and IMO you want Band 26 to be your last resort, to only be used if 41 and 25 are unavailable.

    • My UNLOCKED S-9 can not transmit to the cell site if Band 41 is weak either.  It supposedly has HPUE but I do not see any improvement over phones without HPUE.   To make it wore, recently the parameters have changed that allow me to hang onto Band 41 and band 25 with a signal of -130.  Nothing works at the level, but apparently somebody decided to keep me on extremely poor connections and not allow the phone to drop to a better band.  It probably was done in preparation for VOLTE, but it sure has killed my data experience.   If I am trying to download an attachment to a G-Mail message, I can not do it on band 41 when being held to very bad levels.    -120 was not working and now I find my phone hanging onto -130 level.
    • June security update hit my G7 today - G710P16a (extremely fast reboot/install on this one at that).  Still no sign of Pie unfortunately.
    • Does anyone here have an issue with Band 41 not working well (or at all) on their S10 series device at signal levels of -104 dBmv or worse?  It's like the phone can't reach the tower to send requests.  I never had this issue with my Note 8 and it worked well up to around -120 dBmv. I can't help but wonder if my launch-day S10+ is defective.
