Hey guys just wanted to create a thread for Puerto Rican residents to report the new LTE sites around the island.

around a week ago I noticed the site by the Mayaguez Town Center (posted by another member in another thread) had people on it working aswell as the new panels.

sprint really sucks in any part of the island right now, hoping to see NV soon to get improved 3g data.

Hmmm, how bad is it for you? I was down there last winter and I was getting fine 3G signals, enough to watch netflix at sort of low res on.

I live in Bayamon, and with 3 bars i got 48kbps and 210 ping. :unsure:
Cant wait till NV gets here! I should be able to try it out as soon as they put the backhaul in and upgrade the towers since one of the towers that im nearby usually is one of the first towers to get upgraded in the whole island. :tu:

you were probably around a metro area, I'm at Mayaguez which is the west side of the island. I barely get enough for whatsapp conversations!

Its around 149kbps and 601 ping

They're working and installing panels according to schedules (if they are on schedule an not behind it), but we not gonna see any LTE until Bayamon 4G Core center is finished. We don't know status of that. Probably Robert gonna give us some light when he get more info.

According schedule we should start seeing LTE sites up around december - march 2013.

Yeah I heard that the bayamon core was a key part to this whole process but I hope we get some improved 3g speeds soon. I'm a student at the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez and it just sucks to have 1 bar(or -105dB) of 1x coverage inside the campus.

AT&T and Open Mobile have LTE and T-Mo has HSPA+

Hopefully we will at least, start seeing some test sites soon! I wonder if the backhaul is ready. Also, does anyone know if there are already towers that have been upgraded to network vision and they are just waiting for the backhaul?

Wow Omar, those speeds are great! for some reason I've been stuck in 1x for a while now at the bayamon area near plaza rio hondo. This was today while visiting my parents.

Are you guys seeing eHRPD connections here?

From what I could tell in the PRL, they will need to add the correct MCC/MNC record for the PR Geographic area to make LTE work.

How can we verify? For testing purposes I was running CM10 on my galaxy nexus but reverted to stock 4.0.4 just in case anything got screwed due to having a custom rom.

Nevermind, did a search and found it.
Nothing at Mayaguez, I'll check again tomorrow by the campus where the cell site with the new panels is located.
