There's an area on my way to work that has always been good for speed, but today I got my best results ever on 3g there.

Doesn't anyone have LTE speeds yet? I thought a few locations have been rolled out already.

I had a glimpse of LTE in Wichita, KS today. I noticed it on and only lasted a few minutes. I was able to download speed test and run it before it went away.

Not Verizon fast, but still respectable. Hopefully the speeds will improve as the network is built out and officially activated!

This was taken in Oakbrook, Ill., which is a western 'burb of Chicago. 3G speeds have slowed down a bit within the last week and a half for some reason. Was averaging 1.00-1.5MBPS pretty regularly, even in the office.

Read a couple of articles on ons4gru.com that in regards to Chicago, Sprint's strategy was to start outside Chicago proper and work their way in. So most of the Chicagoland area (burb's, NW Indiana, etc.) should have LTE by October and Chicago will be the last to get it by years end.

Supposedly areas in NW Indiana are actually up and running with LTE but it's never been confirmed.

I hit a few LTE spots in Plano, TX today. Will add pics in a bit.

Was great while in a given area, but the signal doesn't seem to broadcast far from the tower. maybe a 3 block radius

still checking it out. I could travel say east...and get it. Same road traveling west...3g only. it was weird.

Honolulu has been absolutely dreadful on 3G lately. Certain places I can literally be sitting under a tower and get almost no data throughput.

Nothing here at home yet, did it get pushed back? I thought the roll out was supposed to be city wide which is why it took so long to accomplish.

Not at all...this is a soft launch. What area are you in? Dallas for example was switched on this week yes, but scheduled completion is not until November

What exactly is everyone classifying as "verizon fast"

verizon and att both have an average LTE speed of 8-12 Mbps...sure there will be peaks of faster speeds, especially closer to the tower, but don't set expectations on that.

In the limited testing I did yesterday I got speeds anywhere from 3.5-25Mbps dload ...dependent on how far I was from the tower.

It was exactly what I expected speed wise...I was hoping signal would carry further from the tower though.

I'm in San Antonio and according to what I have read from Sprint the first cities (which includes S.A.) would be fully live on 7/15 with the other cities starting to be active in November. This was supposedly being done to guaranty we did not have the fiasco that was the wimax rollout where some parts of town still don't have it to this day.

Where did you read that...I have seen nothing that claimed full capacity on roll out date

the specific page I had was on the inside sprint now site I believe and has since been pulled

I will keep looking for it tho
here it is
http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/212-network-visionlte-deployment-running-list/

so going by that..the "launch" markets should be at 40-50% completion as of today..and 100% by the date listed

this site is pretty insane

Very nice!

The Austin comment was only because of the rivalry between S.A. and Austin, if they weren't getting LTE it would be another thing to rub in their faces.

Here are a couple of speedtests for me. (metro Atlanta area)

Faster one was Sunday morningish from my home. The slower one is from my office closer to downtown Atlanta where I get only fair reception.

Still, I'm quite happy

Not sure where this info is coming from but the map is so far off from what I am actually seeing as to almost be funny. I drove straight through the densest area just above Kirby and never got 4G but do get it north of 1604 on 281 and in an area that only serves a few parks and a landfill!


Sprint LTE is now discoverable in the DFW, Houston, San Antonio & Austin markets - Sprint 4G Rollout Updates


The speeds are respectable, maximum so far of 5207 down and 5498 up, by the landfill...

New areas are turning on almost every day so they may be up by now, I will be in that area tomorrow and will report what I find to you.

I hope this is the case in Denver too. I haven't seen Denver listed in any of the "initial cities" lists (even though it was one of the first for Wimax) but the 3G speeds are horrendous downtown. I am talking speeds that rival my 1st gen iphone on EDGE in the heart of downtown with full bars.

As usual I can't just leave things as they are

I am conducting some 3g tests after changing settings at *#*#4636#*#*

Please help me with the following.

Confirm Data settings

Root should not be required , settings are reversible but as always , I take no responsibility for broken phones.


Open dialer
Press *#*#4636#*#*
Press phone information
Scroll down and change preferred network type to cdma/evdo/GSM/wcdma/lte auto

Watch 3g icon. It will turn off and then come back on. If it does not, use the button there to turn off radio. Wait for x and no signal bars. Turn radio back on.

Return to speed test and run 4-6 more tests.



Share results
So far my speeds went from roughly .3-.6 up and down to 1.5-2.5 up and 1 down






Fluke...maybe, but that is why I need you.

Further testing will include battery effects and lte response


These settings revert at reboot back to CDMA + LTE/EvDo at reboot and slower speeds return. Feel free to play with other network modes though take note...some modes kill voice data text etc

DO NOT CHANGE RADIO BANDS


DO NOT CHANGE RADIO BANDS
Mega pain to fix if you do

Do provide some data for me please. I am looking at more than just speeds in the results.

You can also try the network mode setting that ends in prl as well.

I know it is doing something (much like previous experiments on the orig evo, I did this over 3 hours well over 100 times switching back and forth etc)

Appears to be no difference. the 160 down was the first one I did with the new settings

Those speeds are brutal. Sprint should be ashamed.

Wow that is craziness.

Take note of a couple of things for me...this appears to only work on some towers


when in the 4636 menu scroll back up and see what the current network type is. Before during after

make sure the radio actually disconnects and reconnects when changing network mode

also watch for changes in ping times

I did manually turn off and back on the radios.

I think that this gets you to the same place without complicated dialing -

1st 5 are after, others are before. after this I switched back and forth a couple times. although the average dropped off, there wasn't a significant difference between the two.

I wonder if it was just the radio reset that helped you?

That's is one of my theories but I believe there is another variable as well,maybe two.


Those participating,

can you update your post with baseband and network type

Baseband and network type is at
Menu.settings.about.network

Menu.settings .about.software information


In my testing yesterday I found this really only helped while on eHRPD
I was also on the new baseband...being that I am rooted I have switched back To the old baseband and have seen more consistant results without resetting the radio

Interesting test: do a speed test while on a call (should only work on eHRPD)



What does all of this mean. Well my theory is this

Our phones have the choice to connect to multiple sources now that Network Vision is being implemented. I don't believe hand off between sources is occurring like it should ...what can we do about it? That is the answer I am looking for.

Finally some manageable speeds

The move is already a good thing

I'll redo my tests tonight

Sweet....that is exactly what I was expecting


Still researching this. What I am finding is the phone does not transition between network types like it should. More to come
