  1. Worked around 10:30AM Pacific Time (SF Bay Area) Checked at 6:30PM on two FreedomPop Freedom Spot Photons and 4G connects, but any request just redirects to a 4g.freedompop.com portal. At last, I can stop using them
  2. It's 2G/EDGE speeds after the throttle-point. Basically 56k. (Hey, that's like Sprint 3G sometimes!) Throttled to 0.5-2Mbps "3G" instead would be much better - 56k is unbearable to use (how did I do it before?), but it's less unbearable when it's 56k on LTE latency. Sounds strange as hell, but I had to experience it myself.. They have tiers, and truly unlimited is now one of them. Most customers are okay with getting throttled after 2GB or 5GB. The option of switching on demand is nice, too.
  3. I tried already no LTE, not even eHRPD. EvdoA all the time. SignalCheck can't even see LTE. At some point in the past, I mapped with my deactivated EVO Shift 4G. I was able to map WiMAX intermittently, but mapping WiMAX wasn't worth the trouble.
  4. North. Nexus 4. I'll let Sensorly do the talking (mapped mostly by me): http://sensorly.com/map/4G/US/USA/T-Mobile/lte_310260#q=95131 I believe this is now too off-topic, so if you want to continue discussion about that, shoot me a message! (or if there was an appropriate forum thread, that'd work too, but I wouldn't expect one on s4gru)
  5. I'm still lurking because I want to see Sprint have that "4G everywhere" network that I'm waiting for (that T-Mobile somehow delivered here.) I just can't contribute to the search and the Sensorly mapping.
  6. From Oracle Arena: 5/2 - Game 6 vs Denver Nuggets 5/12 - Game 4 vs San Antonio Spurs I'm pretty sure I was connected to the Oracle Arena site, which is listed as 3G/4G complete and the only one in the area, yet for some reason, LTE strength was solid, but speeds were really slow. It got up to around 1Mbps while the game was on (meaning people were off their phones), but I was expecting more from a complete site. Unfortunately, my time here has come to an end.. I've disconnected my Sprint line, since T-Mobile has been working great for me. It's been fun times for the past year with you guys, getting excited over newly-completed towers and mapping a ton of Sensorly. Now I'm having fun mapping T-Mobile (the majority of the bay area was done by me)
  7. I got a blip of (fake?) LTE, but definitely couldn't complete the circle. Sorry boss. http://sensorly.com/...20fremont,%20ca
  8. It's up now! http://sensorly.com/map/4G/US/USA/Sprint/lte_310sprint#q=millbrae%20transit%20center,%20ca
  9. Got some new LTE at Millbrae Caltrain/BART and walking up El Camino. Definitely a newly-finished tower. Yay! My Sensorly data doesn't appear to be showing yet though..
  10. Sensorly must have been backed up.. yesterday's data is finally up (last checked about an hour ago) Uploaded a bit of T-Mobile LTE this morning as well! Can't wait to see it on the maps. edit: oh weird, it's visible at certain zoom levels
  11. Getting LTE at Mission College! (last checked on Wednesday 3/20) The tower here has been NV Complete for quite some time/many months. The Sensorly data at the moment shows stuff from other nearby towers. I'll do some more plotting later. I believe this tower also serves the nearby Mercado shopping center as well, so finally, some relief there!
  12. This, and you can hit Menu>Details to see the datapoint count that's pending upload ("Messages to send"). It should increase when you're collecting points, and decrease when you're uploading them. This will help determine if you're uploading them at all!
  13. There are a few towers between the completed tower in that area, and Union Landing. The ones that service Union Landing aren't complete yet.
  14. I started commuting from SJ to Millbrae last week. Usually 101, but sometimes 280 and sometimes Caltrain. But always Sensorly
  15. Unfortunately, the tower closer to most of the restaurants is still "in progress", and wasn't broadcasting LTE when I walked by on Thursday 1/24. Yeah, definitely not all. The one near the Caltrain station is the same one I referenced above
  16. Mapped downtown Mountain View (it wasn't mapped yet) and I did quite a bit of walking. http://sensorly.com/...in%20view,%20ca also, 237 by Whisman station. Also got LTE by 101 and Mathilda/Fair Oaks, which I usually don't get. http://sensorly.com/...ir%20oaks%20ave
  17. Unfortunately, the limit for members doesn't allow for more than a handful of screenshots - I brought this up to Robert and he raised the limit for sponsors to hold a bit more. If the server is this pressed to hold images, it's a good idea to host them externally (imgur? dropbox works too)
  18. Uh oh. Ended up plotting LTE around some areas where it wasn't there, because my phone wouldn't drop it once it was out of range. I set it to LTE only via *#*#INFO#*#*. http://sensorly.com/...an%20jose,%20ca
  19. Alright, points I've uploaded ~24 hours ago are up, but not the ones from 12-15 (again, coincidentally) hours ago. Think it's just a huge delay. Edit: now those are up Edit2: and now my most recent set of points appeared almost immediately.
  20. I uploaded a bunch of results today (12-15 hours ago), but they haven't appeared on Sensorly as quickly as they usually do. Anyone else seeing this issue? I'm uploading another few thousand as I type this. Don't want them getting lost..
  21. Sorry, I totally posted that before I saw your second post. Welcome! I wish my office was covered..
  22. Those areas have been plotted on Sensorly for a while; perhaps indeed no one posted about them. Definitely check out Sensorly, and contribute when you can. If you donate, you can see the exact locations of towers, and which towers have completed work.
  23. Thought it was going to be another typical commute.. I was wrong! http://sensorly.com/...0lundy,%2095131 I will plot more Sensorly later.. I kept my detour to 5 minutes
  24. I believe you just connected to a far-away LTE tower, despite having closer towers not broadcasting LTE. Your coverage and speeds should be better once your local tower is the one broadcasting LTE.
  25. Is airplane mode really necessary? I see everyone else doing it, but for me, switching between LTE/CDMA and CDMA/EvDo works really well. Usually I'm connected to LTE within 1-2 seconds of hitting LTE/CDMA (If I'm in reach of an LTE tower of course.) It does, but I've also experienced a bit of hanging on to 3G in an obviously-4G area. I think it just varies. Plus, it doesn't help that I'm usually in a moving car.
