Smart LTE (All sorts of illegal activities will result to thread lock and banning)

  • @artsky

    ako nagsettle nalang ako dito mura kasi. meron din syang band locking saka cell id lock tapos di gaya ng VN007+ meron syang internal fan kaya okay thermals




    balitaan kita kung okay pag natanggap ko na
  • Ok yan ah. Thanks paflo.
  • Pahingi po ng opinion sa mga nakabili ng Smart Bro Home WiFi 5G (Greenpacket D5H). Iniisip kong bumili kaya gusto kong malaman na maayos ba siya for backup. Mayroong na akong fiber as primary.

    on another note, ganun na ba kalala heating ng mga bagong 5G CPE ngayon na need na ng internal fan?

    Yung H112-372 ko wala namang internal fan pero di naman yun nag-overheat. Though as far as I know maganda internal layout nun kaya nadadala yung thermal ng passive cooling.

  • BTW, sa mga nakapag-Gigapower na promo recently, throttled ba talaga Youtube to 5Mbps sa Chrome-based browsers, Safari, at Youtube android app?

    Yun kasi napansin ko nung nagregister ako recently para ipatong sa Unli5G 599. Though Youtube lang naman napansin kong throttled and via sa namention kong apps lang. Netflix, google play, and google drive ay okay unlike sa throttling ng Unlidata299.

    pansin ko din sa mga bagong 5G cpe, parang magagaan sila compared sa huawei at hetong gamit kong oppo t1. isa siguro sa nagpabigat eh yung passive thermal cooling nila. never din nag overheat unit ko at di rin nag re restart sa ookla speedtest.
  • kakakuha ko lang kanina nung Four Faith (F-NR300 v2), medyo fail wala palang Band 28 tong Unisoc version kaya limited tuloy mga pwedeng i-CA na band. di padin sakop ng 5G area namin kaya kailangan ko pa siguro pa modify para malagyan ng antenna

    madalas nasa 70 deg C yung temp nya



    eto lang available bands sa Unisoc version - Band 1, 3 and 5 lang meron dito samin. mababa speed ng TDD bands 40/41 pag naka CA mas mabilis pa pag single Band 40

    Baka tinipid sa bakal na heatsink kaya ganun.
  • Any news when Smart's 29yo 2G network will be decommissioned?

    LTE's more than 10 years

    Windows 7 ended support 2 years ago.

    Windows 8 will end support in 1/2 a year from now.

    So after nearly 3 decades maybe it is time to upgrade a 2G phone/device to a 4G phone/device?

    Para magamit yung spectrum niya for better 5G for all!

  • I suspect they'll keep 2g support for voice/text for a long time. Not everyone can afford to upgrade to 4g.

    They've got a lot of work to upgrade towers to 4g, if they want to do that, also. Using CellMapper, even 4g coverage where I am is lacking, and there's no 5g. My phone has to connect 2km away to get a spotty 4g signal. There's lots of 2g/3g towers all over, though, even very close.

    I'm using VoWiFi at home now, which works well, otherwise there's lots of missed calls.
  • Sa mga naka 5g Modem tapos naka Unli 5G 599. May throttling ba tong plan na to pag nag tagal lalo na sa mga google based website like youtubes. Balak ko sana i try since stable 5g signal naman sa area ko.

  • Ano ba nangyayari sa Smart ngaun, Commonwealth area wlang 4G. Di ko gets.

    Wala naman. Just make sure lang na stable enough 5G signal sa inyo.

    Baka may inaayos lang.


    ------------

    Speaking of signal loss, sa amin banda fairview, napansin ko na nawawala n41 5G ng Smart after midnight mga ilang weeks na now. Bumabalik na lang around 5-7AM.

    Dati inconsistent yung time na nawawala after midnight (pwedeng 12:XX, 1:XX, or 2:XXAM) pero lately mga 12:15AM (give and take a few minutes) siya mawawala. Nung June naman di naman ganito.
    May isang cell site din near Timog akong napasin na ganito behavior.


    Though n41 lang nawawala. Yung n28 DSS stays naman. Minsan mawawala din B1 LTE alongside n41 pero sporadic lang.


    Anyone else na consistently nawawalan ng n41 5G signal during certain hours?
  • ^ wala pa bang N78 sa qc boss?
  • ^ wala pa bang N78 sa qc boss?


    Sa amin specifically, wala. Most likely because up pa yung LTE Band 42 dito. Most likely maggdedeploy sila kapag i-refarm nila na nila yun for 5G. Sa ilang QC malls deployed n78 as full 60MHz as an internal small cell since di naman umaabot sa labas ng building yung signal to interfere with whatever LTE B42 sa labas..

    Then again, baka yun pala ginawa nila the past weeks. Though I haven't checked if nawawala rin B42 LTE past midnight.

  • ^ hindi ba nila pwede pag sabayin gamitin yung specific band frequency for 4G & 5G sa isang area? samin nawala yung LTE B42 pero meron naman before pero wala pa din N78, then B41 totally nawala, meron N41, then B28 N28 parehong naka up

    edit: B28 N28 pala parehong naka up

  • Pwede naman though sa case ng Smart, having 20MHz LTE B42 up means only being able to deploy up to 40MHz n78 on that same area.
    Better if they can deploy yung buong 60MHz nila of n78 rather a portion.

    Though if Globe is any indicator, 40MHz of 5G can actual provide good performance if done right. I mean, yung 40MHz nila of n41 is beating 60MHz of n41 ng Smart where I am (as well as other places I've been to). Which makes me excited once both of them deploy n78.
  • Kanina pang umaga to, hindi ako makachange ng sim dahil di openline R281 ko..

    May ma suggest ba kau na affordable 4g+ na may 2Ca or ano bagong tech ngaun + maybe 5G kng di masyado mahal?

    Ayaw ko na kay R281. Gsto ko ung salpak register once a month lng and okay, tapos back up for DITO or GOMO sakali tulad sa nangyayari ngaun. Phone mode lng sa post na to tsk

  • Nakabit ko na kanina yung 40dbi na binili ko. Kaso bat kaya ang bagal pa din ng upload speed ko?

    Okay po ba tong signal ko? Eto nakalagay.




    Bale 60mbps DL tas 3mbps lang UL. Di ko na alam anong gagawin hahaha

    Anong LTE band yan? di kasi shown
  • Anong LTE band yan? di kasi shown


    Triny ko yung FDD 1700/FD 2100 sir ng sabay. kaso di ko sure kung kumakagat since sa huawei manager ko lang ginagawa.
  • Can you try ibang Huawei Manager? Para at least malinaw yung signal info na bigay
  • @dmz siguro hindi din nila maimplement nationwide yun N78 dahil sa ultera service na gumagamit ng B42, pero na decomissioned na daw nila this july, baka ito na yung sign para ideploy na for N78

    By end of July 2022, PLDT will have finished the planned decommissioning of roughly 185 telecom towers that serve as Home Ultera's TD-LTE coverage

    PLDT Home Ultera's network migration is now complete!

  • @Hamz baka nga connected dun yung regular loss of n41 ko every past midnight. Also baka nagbabawas din sila ng bigat sa tower by retiring B42 since may pagka-malaki and mabigat yung usual na n78 tower panels na non-small cell.

    I-observe ko if by August nawawala pa rin n41 after midnight. Hopefully naman maayos na since hassle sa mga naka-unli5G na walang n28 support ang devices.
  • @dmz01 meaning mag dadagdag pa sila ng antenna panel sa tower for N78 deployment? hindi ba supported yan ng existing antenna for 4G/5G frequency?

    kung connected sa N28 hindi ramdam yung 5G experience, parang naka LTE lang din
  • meaning mag dadagdag pa sila ng antenna panel sa tower for N78 deployment? hindi ba supported yan ng existing antenna for 4G/5G frequency?


    depende sa existing hardware nila. Pwede rin kasi na gagamit sila ng newer and better equipment. Though for towers na walang existing b42, most likely dagdag panel talaga yun for n78.

    kung connected sa N28 hindi ramdam yung 5G experience, parang naka LTE lang din



    true, pero at least unli pa rin kung sa Unli5G ka lang naka-subscribe. And in some places, i have seen n28 actually have faster upload speeds than n41 (or whatever LTE anchor band gamit ng n41 that time) tipong 70Mbps levels. IDK why pero baka di lang congested plus some optimization maybe.
  • @dmz - nakadownload ako ng bagong app kaso nung sinet ko sa TDD freq bumagsak yung rsrp at rsrq tas bumagal lalo haha.

    Pwede kayang sa modem na? 24/7 kasi literal for 5 years (b315s-936)
  • @TPC_GameGuard025 pa-SS nga nung signal reading.

    well, baka congested din yung lugar mo uplink wise.


    Also, usually mas madaling matalo ng signal loss from the length ng cable to external antenna yung upload side pagdating sa external antenna. So mas madaling ma-reach yung point of diminishing returns sa upload pag gamit ka ng external antenna.
  • Update:

    As "scheduled", nawala na naman n41 dito sa amin. I tried band locking to B42 and nasasagap pa rin and almost full bars. So I guess kailangan ko pa talaga hintayin yung end of July 2022 kung may improvements.
