Signal Readings

Post by gscheb » Mon Oct 05, 2020 8:40 am

Hello,
Last two days ping has more than doubled on T-Mobile. Don't know why. T-Mobile keeps jacking around with stuff.

Anyway looking at the signal stats is the CSQ same as SINR value?

CSQ is Indication of signal strength and channel bit error rate

signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR)
signal-to-noise ratio

Are CSQ and SINR the same thing? Not exactly, they are both a measure of quality but the SINR units are in dB

Does someone know the metrics of CSQ?

Might be helpful?

Out of curiosity, how are you using TMo? considering switching.

Phone sim.
TTL 64
They don't throttle much.
Only issue them messing with towers all the time anymore.
