Improvement in Speed after NV

Recommended Posts

Should I Expect to see any improvement in speed when NV upgrades are live in my area. I'm on the south shore of Nassau County Long Island and according to the maps there are no live site on all of the Island. I'm not complaining about my speeds cause I know how slow it is for some people. I was also wondering what time of the day is the networks usually the slowest from peak usage, so I can run some speed test then. There have only been a few times I've got under 1Mbps for downlaod and upload

There are places in the legacy Sprint network that perform just fine. Especially newer sites. Also, there are many others that have received temp improvments in advance of Network Vision. These are the ones shown on network.sprint.com.


With performance like this, you will likely not see much improvement out of Network Vision in 3G, except for probably a slight signal increase. The biggest thing that will affect you will be LTE availability once it comes online and you upgrade your iPhone to use it.

I had been getting similar speeds where i go to school in Oneonta NY for a few month until a few weeks ago I noticed a major slow down back to where it had been before around .2-.4Mbps download and .01-.20Mbps upload. I contacted sprint and they said one of the towers in my area were "under review for a possibly capacity augment" is that just what the network upgrade map is on the sprint site

    • Added, and 2 more estimated sites: T-Mobile eNB 876480. Looks like its located at (40.62210996397784, -73.97627312607108), as the tower looks like a Sprint setup. T-Mobile eNB 875632. Both this site and Sprint eNB 9022 seem to be located at (40.61640722407462, -73.96985178560767).
    • Many of these sites I am uploading are for sites that do not exist, yet.  Although, I suppose I could go into NR only mode every time I connect to a new site, and then switch back, allowing all the TAC NR trails that occur to now have a home. Ideally, I would love to ne able to add the TAC's myself.  I have the NR Trails CSV file downloaded, and I see all the TAC-less NR entries.  Is there any way I can edit and manually upload them myself?  Maybe create a portal for such an upload?  Or at least give me a way to create at least one manual entry for every new site? Robert
    • Could we send the TAC as -1 if it’s invalid? Then, if there’s and existing site that matches the other info, I could match the web data entry up with it (despite the TAC being absent). 
    • Mine has been enabled.  And they show up in my device logs with the TAC null. Robert
    • If the TAC is missing, an entry is still recorded in the log, but it would not be included in uploads.. so you could probably manipulate a trail log export to add the data to the map if you were able to nail down the sites without the TAC. EDIT: Sites with a missing TAC are only recorded in the log if the option to do so is enabled (Logger > Log Sites with Missing TAC).
