    I frequently get better uploads than downloads here in South OC suburbia, but not (usually) that slow for DL. Probably just congestion in my case.

    What's the best way to check for insufficient backhaul vs. OTA congestion? I suppose camping near a site at 2am would be a good way to check its backhaul infra...

    Being 'near' a 5g site, and having high SS-SINR on 5g / SINR, good RSRQ on 4g LTE.
    Eg. 1 site, I can get 200Mbps alone on only LTE B4 with 50Mbps upload. Many sites will Max at 100Mbps due to insufficient backhaul (no congestion). I had one site in Newhall, prioor to upgrade struggling to hit 10 Mbps 500' from the site with B4, B2 and B12. SINR was somewhere around 1 , RSRQ was &lt; -15dB, and RSRP was around -70dBm. I filled tickets, as service a couple blocks away where signal was weaker, was unusable. I actually spoke with one of the engineers in Simi Valley, and was told that it was backhaul, but had plans for upgrade with 5g in comes late 2020, and now this site puts out 600Mbps. LTE there is "better" , but nowhere near the 200Mbps on B4. Lots of condos / homes. Good to see that some areas of congestion are getting better.

    In places like San Simeon, Tmobile admitted to CPUC that they have T1 backhaul for 5g. This area gave me SINR of 30, RSRP approaching -65 dBm but speeds of 0.3 to 1.4 Mbps down and a few Mbps upload. Didn't matter if it was 3g/4g or 5g. Day or night... Didn't matter

    Found 5 100 MHz towers on a drive today. 721 is the fastest I got on any of the 100 MHz or 60 MHz towers. No difference in speed though when the towers were on 60 MHz. Shocked how much n41 there is now. Few months ago it was a scavenger hunt.

    Interesting bits to note in my part of SoCal. With the exception of NR, I'm noticing what appears to n41 'at all costs' on NSA vs n71. This actually works well currently with my device at times showing 0 bars and 300Mbps.

    I was in Ontario for 22hrs a few days ago and actually impressed with how well n41 worked.

    I was getting 400-500Mbps mid day, and 600-700Mbps at night, with LTE b41 still up and going.

    Wherever ive used it, it's been "at worst" above 300 Mbps, and at best above 700. Lots of spectrum and mimo works well.

    Lots of Tmobile use, I suspect for the holiday weekend on the coast. Only B4 LTE in downtown Cambria, but speed is about 1/2 of typical... Still very usable in the part of town. 5g + B71 + B4 on the old school backhaul still struggling.Name:  Screenshot_20210403-172959.jpg

    Found some pretty pathetic n41. Tower used to be 66 only. Guess they didn’t touch backhaul yet. Name:  37A4BDEF-9B65-4DB5-B7A3-C8E6FEAFD88D.jpg

    2-3 sites away there’s proper n41- had to go through a data dead zone to get there (AT&T and Verizon have a tower in the dead zone for tmo / sprint): Name:  561135E3-7B6A-4E91-96B6-8994CBA2508D.jpg

    T-Mobile 5G Speed Test Results

    I was thinking about trying T-Mobile 5G home internet - but not with these speeds:

    It’s finally locking onto 5G-NR SA at home from a distant site across the valley. From the sites that I can see when connected to LTE, the speed test is likely from a line-of-sight site 7-9 miles away. My house overlooks much of the city.





    LTE speeds at home typically range from 20-60 download.

    The Pixel 5 no longer shows specific cell info when connected to 5G-NR SA after the March update. Hopefully that will get fixed this month.

    Appears that not all sites have backhaul upgraded when the site is upgraded to 5g. Must be separate teams. Out here on n the boonies, this is a reason why typically Verizon and to a lesser extent At&t are the default carrier not choice. Name:  IMG_20210404_103619.jpg

    Did T-Mobile claim they're upgrading 1000 towers a month or something like that?

    I don't know if upgrading towers means adding in these mid bands or upgrading the backhaul to the towers or both.

    Back home though up here in the White Mountains (NE AZ), I’m at the mercy of CellularOne.

    Clinton Township, MI. All the n41 sites are still 40 MHz. What's interesting, is since the latest update on my S21+ n66 is now enabled as well as n41+n71 and n41+n66 in the 5G band combos
