    pretty sure blazer test speeds on dslreports aren't exactly accurate because blazer takes a while to process the file. to get a more accurate speed reading tether it to your laptop via usb cable.

    Here are the HAs and their regions. Some I'm not exactly certain of but are likely in the area (based on traceroutes). Check the HA on your phone and see if it assigned to one in your region.


    68.28.241.76 or 77 North Carolina ?
    68.28.249.76 or 77 Georgia
    68.28.153.76 or 77 Chicago?
    68.28.145.76 or 77 Chicago
    68.28.177.76 or 77 Ft. Worth
    68.28.89.76 or 77 Omaha
    68.28.81.76 or 77 Kansas City
    68.28.185.76 or 77 Georgia
    68.28.113.76 or 77 Pennsylvania
    68.28.57.76 or 77 Bay Area, California
    68.28.49.76 or 77 Central/So California ?
    68.28.121.76 or 77 New York

    Thanks for the great thread. I have been getting bad speeds based on dslreports.com/mspeed of about 170-180 kbits/sec, always on EVDO (bad is relative though since I was coming from a GSM Treo 600). I called Sprint and the first time they tried changing some network settings, the second time they said there was nothing else they could do from their end (it was the tier 2 network support, so they were fairly knowledgeable) and they would have to send someone out locally to investigate and I should get a call back within 24-36 hours (I thought this was quite impressive if true).

    In addition, per the original posters thread on the other forum, I switched my HA to the KC & Omaha addresses and picked up 100 kbits (to 275).

    Thinking that maybe it was just me and had something to do with other software I loaded, etc. I went to the local Sprint store and tried the speedtest on their 700p demo which obviously had nothing loaded, and got the same 170-180kbits. I am in the Chicago metro area with good EVDO coverage according to the maps on sprint.com and have tried and received the same speeds regardless of trying at 1pm or 3am (to eliminate the question of network traffic).

    2 points - 1) I find it interesting that when I try using Orb and they do a speed test, it shows that I am getting 2.1M/sec consistantly.

    What are others getting using the dslreports.com/mspeed (even if it is not accurate, it is useful to compare vs one another)

    2) I seem to remember that when I first got the 700p, the "trail" that spun around the globe in Blazer did so ridiculously fast, so much that you could barely see it. Now, it is very slow althought the speeds are still decent, does anyone else get this or remember the trailer flying around the globe quickly?

    Lastly, both techs I spoke with said I should get a minimum of 300kbits/sec up to 700kbits/sec on a regular basis.

    ^What was your original HA address? What is your signal strength? (Dial ##DEBUG)

    It would be interesting to know any HA addresses assigned to phones that are not near the regions listed. The HA address is apparently assigned to be near the billing address of the account. This could be an issue for those who have a billing address in a different region than where they most use the phone/device.

    Request to anyone reading this thread with a Sprint EVDO phone/device....
    - Please post the primaring and secondary HA addresses of your phone (dial ##DATA)
    - Your state or region
    - The billing location if different

    My original HA's were:

    68.28.153.76
    68.28.145.76

    Both of which correspond to Chicago, which is where I am and also my billing address.

    I don't know what I am really reading here as far as signal strength, but how is this:

    RSSI value -93
    Rx,Tx,Tx adj -94, -484, -63

    I hit the "EVDO" button on the bottom and saw:
    Recv Signal Strength 68
    Rcve Signal Power 80

    Can you interpret these? Are they good, bad, or what?

    My HA's Are:

    68.28.121.77
    68.28.113.77

    One of which is NY, the other is PA.

    RSSI value -76
    Rx,Tx,Tx adj -79, -633, -63

    I hit the "EVDO" button on the bottom and saw:
    Recv Signal Strength 29
    Rcve Signal Power 82

    My state / region is central Rhode Island (billing zip the same)

    North Side of Chicago Illinois

    DSLReports speedtest only:117 kbit/sec now, Saturday night 10:30 CT
    (I never had > 220)

    Quite unimpressive for EVDO
    If a computer crashes in the forest and no one is on-site to download the error log, is the event documentable?

    Indianapolis, IN:
    • HA:
      • 68.28.153.76
      • 68.28.145.76
    • RSSI Value -60
    • Rx,Tx,Tx Adj -64, -633, -63

      • Rcve sig. strength 17
      • Rcve power 67
    • dslreports.com/mspeed using 600K test = 308 kbit/sec


    Even with 6 bars of signal, I get varying results anywhere from 100 to 400 kbit/sec. I went through all of the HA options and couldn't do any better (most were worse).
    Motorola Startac → Samsung SCH-8500 → SonyEricsson T608 → Treo 650 → Treo 700p

    just call the tier 2 support to get msl but their systems are down.

    I tried again in a suburb, a few miles from my house, and got nearly 300kbit/sec.

    Clearly location makes a difference, but is this the best we can expect?
    If a computer crashes in the forest and no one is on-site to download the error log, is the event documentable?

    I live in Walnut Creek, CA (hour away from SF bay area) and have really good signal (5-6 bars all the time) here is what I found out so far:
    1) My best HA setting is the one from KC area, but on my treo best I can get is
    300 kb/s. Before on my original HA setting (SF bay area HA) I can only get
    around 180 kb/s.
    2) If I tether my treo to my notebook via USB cable ( with KC HA) best I can get is
    300 kb/s. I think that's really disappointing for EVDO treo, and I did the test
    around 2 am so network congestion is really not a question.
    3) I also have Samsung A900 on sprint network and I did tethering speed test after
    I did my treo with the same HA setting ( KC HA). I consistantly get around
    800 kb/s via USB, so my area get really good EVDO signal.

    So my question is do I have bad Treo or the speed I got is already the best I am going
    to get out of my treo? when we do speed test on treo, is it possible that Blazer is the
    cause of lower speed ( maybe because Blazer use Sprint's proxy, and or rendering problem with Blazer). And lastly why my treo tethering speed so so much worst than my Samsung A900 with the same network setting and I am sitting in the same spot (hence same signal strengh)?


    My HA setting are:

    ok guys found my msl out and now I am on both KC towers 68.28.81.76 & 68.28.185.76. Did a 600k file with 3 bars and got 203 kbits/sec. At first I was doing 105 on the ft worth tower

    Live and get billed in Ft. Lauderdale.

    Primary HA 68 28 153 76
    Secondary 68 28 145 76
    Both Chicago? A long way from FL

    Speeds are consistently 200-220 k.

    Am now in Atlanta and getting 230 k.

    For the 700p, the Blazer browser is clearly the bottleneck, typically not the network. Try streaming 300Kbps video. If Blazer perf is only 200Kbps but you can stream 300Kbps or 500Kbps videos w/out skipping, you are obviously at least getting that level of performance.


    For those who can do USB tethering, try testing from laptop on...

    I am far from an expert, but this is seeming to make more and more sense to me. Interesting though is that while Blazer may be the bottleneck, all things are clearly not equal as for me, I got about a 40% speed improvement (according to dslreports speed test) by using the KC HA's.
