Second who are you to sit here and tell some this forum is not the place for you to vent? This isn't the first thread here about venting and most likely not the last in the TP2 section. You kno seems like a lot of people here lately are either mad or angry. Looking at a lot of post, seems like this anger is toward the NEWER MEMBERS. Just my 2 cents
not necessarily newer members I think, I believe its newer members who do not read the forum rules before posting, that's frustrating, and people who do not search before they post, they annoy us over at hofo too.

Re: Need to vent!!!

Ya I totally understand that, but this is a forum about HELPING EACH OTHER. Everyone can help somebody else. But its the fact that quite a few post are NOT HELPING whatsoever and seems like they flame the OP. I get the point that some/most need to "SEARCH" but some members here just need to chill and remember how it is to be a NOOBIE

Re: Need to vent!!!

that sounds about right. keep in mind that the speed is dependent on bandwidth to the tower and the # of active sessions. some area's obviously have more than others.
actually the year I tethered was ok, obviously torrents and other big downloads took forever, but thats what you get for being cheep or living in the woods.

Yikes...I'm not your enemy.

Most of my posts here have been related to the tweaks .cab that our forum friend goodthings2life started.

I DID actually look before posting my "vent" thread...but wasnt quite sure where to put it. I was going to post it in the general discussion section of the main forum but opted instead for the TP2 section seeing as how that is what I have and I NOTICED that there were way more peeps viewing the thread...My hope was that someone would actually have good advice as to what to do.

It wasnt just a "noobie" blindly posting into whatever forum came first. (Although I AM a noobie and no doubt make that evident)..I actually picked the area with a purpose in mind.

Anywho...sorry if I offended you for taking up one thread of space with my drivel!

Thread moved to proper forum!

Getting mad because of someones opinion is silly, as it raises your blood pressure and makes this site uninviting to all. So please chill and enjoy each others company.

Re: Need to vent!!!

I can't say it depends on where you live, IMHO. I live in NC and now for 2 years I've had the worst service ever, but some people in the same town have great coverage. I don't understand at all!!!

QFT!

I'm in a major metropolitian area -Joliet IL...just outside Chicago. Fact is, my own home appears to be in a "dead zone". 8 miles away in Romeoville, my numbers are more like 1.5/500

Joliet is a city of over 100,000 with neighboring cities very large as well. One would think that the coverage footprint for such a large/populated area would be saturated..

Re: Need to vent!!!

There are no faster carriers than Sprint. Period. It's a plain and simple fact that has been proven repeatedly. Sprint's worst speeds are still better than almost anyone else's.

....lol people fall for the advertisments and desend thier carriers like they would defend thier mom. Anyways as for those speeds on a 3G CDMA network through WWAN thats actually pretty good. slightly above average as average is 700kbps to 1.2 mbps and thats about 4 to 5 miles out from a tower WITH it pointing at you.

As for the techs coming out people dont know but every carrier has a network team behind the scenes. Sprint/Verizon gets a call. it goes up to tech which is the last line of customer contact. then they open a trouble ticket which gets shot to the network team. they examine the ticket and what they already know or have reports of in the area then they send it up to system performance who actually are 24 hour techs/engineers that drive to the location and towers to check for problems ect.

just cause they dont come to your door doesnt mean they dont come to your area.

as for the advertisment of the fastest network. If you do your research and get the average and burst speed reports of all carriers AT&T has the highest average though there 3g network map is A Joke to say the least. Verizon and Sprint are tied with average speeds but sprint does have wimax which does give them 4g(more like 3.5) in limited markets.

My point is with the speeds your getting it will depend on Alot of things. one for where your at thats probably just the averag anyways. two are u inside or outside? house/apartment made of hard material like Brick/concrete/Metal? Are you facing a tower?...these are the things that can factor into signal and speeds. third dont expect a WWAN to ever be as fast as a LAN or WLAN as these factors dont come into play.
