Re: Post your Sprint 3g speeds

"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.
