    Verizon shutting down eHRPD

    It looks like Verizon is shutting down eHRPD.

    I no longer see it here and it appears that they are shutting it down nationwide.

    Minor but it means there is no longer a smooth transition between EV-DO and LTE.

    Saw someone mention seeing this on Reddit recently. Sounds like it's been in the works for a little bit.

    No, they are just shifting to a different band. There are still millions that are using 3g.

    eHRPD is not EV-DO.

    I just confirmed that eHRPD is shut down in my part of Hampton Roads. Disabling LTE now bumps me to EV-DO instead.

    Verizon has already shut down eHRPD in Oklahoma City. Now running on EVDO.

    Verizon shutting down eHRPD

    I have an iPhone so I can't check field test or anything like in android for eHRPD so instead I checked my IP address over at test-IPv6.com and saw the IP address change when switching to 3G from LTE indicating that eHRPD is indeed gone in my area.

    Not sure why they felt the need to shut down something that was mainly software/backend based.

    Recently had a site near me lose LTE for an afternoon. I dropped to EVDO, not eHRPD. Not sure if this is relevant. Just thought I'd add that.

    Verizon shutting down eHRPD

    Isn’t eHrpd the next level of EV-DO like RevA & RevB How does it help to turn it off unless it was a meaningless extra layer?
    I expect it is just rebanding or something going on, as was suggested.

    Not per my understanding. It's just a different method of interfacing the EVDO air interface to the LTE core. A more direct way. I've seen people report that pings were better on eHRPD. But that's about all you get out of it.

    It provided a seamless hand down from LTE by connecting to the LTE core, the IP address would stay the same going from LTE to eHRPD. There is no handover from LTE to EVDO, so data flow will be interrupted when dropping down.

    Ah. Thank you sir. But no throughput difference, right?

    A good definition, a bit dated, but still good-

    "eHRPD acts as a bridge from CDMA to LTE by ensuring service continuity while protecting existing operator investment. In the initial stage of LTE deployment, network coverage is mainly concentrated to the hotspots. When users move outside of the LTE network, their mobile broadband data service is seamlessly handoff to the Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) network, ensuring a good experience. This is a key function for all the hundreds of CDMA operators who are expanding their networks with the 10 times more capableLTE service. Without a smooth handover between LTE and CDMA the end-user will have a poor data service experience."

    I'm trying to see things from Verizon's point of view here, but no matter how hard I try, I just can't get my head that far up my own arse!

    I mean, AT&T and T-Mobile are constantly making improvements to the data speed and overall experience on their LTE networks, at the same time that their number of subscribers is growing, especially in T-Mo's case. And what's VZW's response? To DOWNGRADE the user experience on their LTE network! Whoever came up with this idea ought to be ashamed of themselves.

    Not really a downgrade. It was a short term stop gap while the rolled out LTE.

    Now that most of the country us covered by LTE, hand off to 3G/EVDO is not such a big deal and not needed much any more.

    Certainly not in areas with good LTE coverage.
