Various communication systems may benefit from techniques and devices for properly re-establishing connections. For example, communication systems of the third generation partnership project may benefit from a configured condition for radio resource control connection re-establishment. A method can include detecting, by a user equipment, a predetermined condition. The method can also include, based on the detected predetermined condition, at least one of initiating sending an indication to a network element. The indication can include a measurement result of a cell serving the user equipment, a measurement result of a neighbor cell, a random access problem indication, an indication from radio link control (RLC) that a maximum number of retransmissions has been reached, or any combination thereof.
