said by Jack_in_VA:

"A custom HA"? That will do nothing for your speed performance. Your speed is determined by your equipment and the Sprint tower you are accessing. If your tower is loaded then your speeds will be lower.

Most of us on Sprint just use 255.255.255.255 as our HA and let the system choose it when we connect.

Right now my HA is in Belleville, MO and as an example I'm using Comcast in Richmond Va for my speedtest. It doesn't matter where it is.



If I switch my home agent from Chicago, IL to San Diego, California, and ping the same server for testing purposes, it will be terribly worse latency wise. What you could do, and this seems to help slightly, find the HA that 255.255.255.255 gives you, go the list and put the second address as your primary.

So for example -

68.28.145.76 Chicago, IL Area 4(255.255.255.255 assigns me this one.)
68.28.145.77 Chicago, IL Area 4(This is used is first goes down, however since most people are assigned the server ending in .76, .77 will have less load.)

Overall your speed will still suck, there is not much you can do, if anything, just some fine tuning on real specific networking concepts.

I imagine that 3G Upgrading has been abandoned as Sprint works furiously to bring 4G on line....

Yesterday I spoke to a tech rasing a new tower on the local water tower pad. Told me it was Sprint, "a temproary tower", and it was going to be 4G.

Tower will be 5M from me in the town of New Windsor proper.

Keep posting your lousy speeds ,But as Jim stated constantly posting your bad speeds are not going to get anyone at Sprints attention . I doubt they come to these boards. Perhaps you need to find a source at Sprint that will help you with your plight.
[/BQUOTE :

Monday, on a bike ride,

I spoke to a tech raising a new tower on the New Windsor water tower pad. Told me it was Sprint, "a temporary tower", and it was going to be 4G.

The tower pad is 5M from me in the town of New Windsor proper..

must be on-line now as my 3G speeds have improved...

Pretty low here. I can't play any online games too easily at the moment either. I keep having issues with my ping jumping around.

That speed bump from the new tower didn't last long... about 15 days....back to the same old same old.....guess they put on the new tower just in time.....to sell more devices.

You should include your RSSI, EC/IO and Pilot number in your documentation so you can try to figure out why your speeds are being iffy.

Monitoring only your current speeds will only just tell you that there is a problem but not really the reason of the problem.

If you don't know how to find that data, read »evdotips.blogspot.com/

Still doing well. I think a lot of my competition moved to a WISP leaving the tower less used.

Yes Jim they're holding up fairly consistently. Some of the apparent streaming at night must have abated.

Why wouldn't they as long as the power stayed on? Verizon also stayed on here as did the power.
