Network Vision/LTE - Cincinnati Market

Recommended Posts

I searched the forum and could not find any answers or information. Was wondering if anyone knows when cincinnati may get working 4g lte? I was told by sprint sales person that the towers are up and should be full working within 2 months, but i believe thats just a lie to try and get me to sign a 2yr contract.

Thanks

Codie is right. Deployment will not begin in the Cincy market until sometime in 2013.

Sing along, everybody...

 

 

 

Baby, if you've ever wondered,

Wondered whatever became of me,

I'm waiting on the airlink in Cincinnati,

Cincinnati, LTE.

 

Got kind of tired packing and unpacking,

Tower to tower and up and down the band,

Maybe LTE and me were never meant to be,

But Sprint think of me once in awhile.

 

I'm waiting on LTE in Cincinnati...

I live in Cincinnati (Clifton area) and I work up in West Chester. I feel like I have been seeing better data speeds, especially compared to a few months ago. I stream music all the way up the I-75 corridor and speeds were so bad I couldnt stream a song without buffering multiple times. Now there are only a few spots where its like that.

That was a great show. I still meet people who, when they find out I'm from Cincinnati, think that's a real station.

There shall be LTE in Cincinnati when Mike Brown becomes a good NFL owner.

 

So let it be written; so let it be done...

Somebody correct me if I am wrong but I don't think the Iphone will tell if it is on eHRPD just "Cellular"

According to Bollar, I think if you go into the Field Test screens using *3001#12345#* you might be able to see it there... All I can do is look and see

I have a theory for LTE in Cincinnati and I hope my theory is totally wrong.

 

We have Wimax and I doubt that when LTE makes it here it wont be of the 1900 Mhz variety but rather of the 800 Mhz flavor.

 

I think that we will get 800 Mhz LTE shortly after IDEN is shut off next summer.

 

This also means the current batch of LTE devices wouldnt be able to use it anyway because they only can use the 1900 Mhz band.

 

I really hope im wrong but I think I own a device that will never see LTE in its lifetime while in the Cincinnati area.

Why would Sprint not deploy 1900 MHz LTE in Cincinnati when they are deploying it on every cell site (except a small percentage that cannot be upgraded)?

You might see both 1900 and 800 MHz LTE in the roll out at the time, but the claim that you will never see 1900 MHz is ridiculous.

    • you'll need to flash the Sprint firmware. 
    • There are really two providers in Canada: ROGERS and TELUS/Bell. TELUS and Bell operate the same network. 
    • How is Canada's three wireless companies working out...
    • No. You are not based in reality if you think the wireless market is going to stagnate if Sprint and T-Mobile merge. 5g is coming and will be pushed by everyone in the market place.    The question is weather you want it to follow the same pattern LTE did or not. Would you like the big two to deploy a really solid 5g network and the other two to deploy an uneven networks or 3 solid th networks?    You anti-merger people dont understand the role capital intensive industries play in shaping such markets.  If a market is capital intensive it is more efficient with fewer players. Imgaine if the market still looked like it did in 2003, we would have plenty of players and regional plans with not even 3g deployed.   Sprint has 30 billion. They are able to increase CAPEX this year because they don't have much maturing this year.  This is not the case the next two years which means they are likely to starve their network again over that time. Mean while the big two aren't going to stand still. Sprint isn't growing top line income fast enough to make themselves viable on their own.      
    • This merger would stagnate the wireless market it would stink almost immediately.  You are pro-merger but already wondering if they would have capital to build and expand the network.  Sprint now has positive revenue to increase CAPEX for additional B41, MIMO, and 5G why hault the improvements that Sprint has been making?   You guys screaming pro merger really need to sit back and really think, are you willing to see less competition and increasing wireless bills?  Not to mention that unlimited will be a thing of the past, after all it was Sprint and T-Mobile that made the big two offer unlimited.  If this merger goes through I don't want to hear complaining I am taking names...
