  1. Bunch of juicy details about the QC in the Premier Thread 😀
  2. Coming in, I visually saw the panels on the tower just west of Northwoods mall - got about 28 and 32 Meg, 10 up. Then went to the Bass Pro Shop - had a B41 signal except the in back and tested about 18-20Meg, and then B26 was pretty good and got about 8 Meg. I think the tower I was pulling was the 4-points downtown hotel one. Also went by Bradley - that tower didn't even have any LTE yet Then the tower by the Grand Praire mall didn't have B41 yet, but B26 was very usable at 12Meg. Looking in my SCP logs, it looks like I picked up B41 off of a few other towers....we should get a Premier thread going to track progress!!
  3. Forgot to mention I went to Peoria on the 1st...found about 4 towers live with B41- got about 25 Meg down on each of them. Pretty nice to see that Sprint is now comparable to Verizon now!

    Universal Broadband deployments

    Nice article! I wish we had that in my area...Our farm house is in the middle of the ends of 2 DSL providers: AT&T from the north and Frontier from the south...neither want to build out. AT&T is the the current POTS provider, and recently laid all new underground lines, but didn't bother to extend DSL service ... 57,000ft. from the CO that's from a town twice as far away from the closest town with a CO! Still running on a Sprint 3G card, though...it's not too bad since the NV upgrades

    Phone Insurance a rip off?

    I find the insurance pretty convenient. I have the $11/month plan and this past Saturday, I cracked the screen on my G3, submitted the paperwork around noon Sunday, and the replacement shipped out Sunday at 8pm. Didn't get it until Tuesday at noon, but that's not too long. Not to mention, I bought my G3 from a guy off of Craigslist only 4 weeks ago...I don't think any other insurance would cover that!

    LG G3

    Yes, the seller is required to put in the esn/meid when listing it so that the admins can check it...the actual number does not appear on the listing. You don't even need a paypal account to buy--you can use a credit card that goes through paypal. Sellers have to be paypal verifed, I believe.
  7. Ebay...A guy just offered me $75 for mine....I think I'll try to push it higher.
  8. It's also nice to see traffic going straight to Chicago instead of Kansas City, much faster pings!
  9. 3G upgrades are here in the metro Quad Cities! Last week I was lucky to get 0.2MBit down in town and now it's pretty amazing! This is at Augustana College:

    U770

    For anyone looking to buy a U770, there's a guy on eBay selling them for only $15: http://www.ebay.com/itm/161128043193 Not too bad considering the other LTE cards are over $100.

    FreedomPop - Now in tri-band LTE

    Just got my Tri-Band FreedomPop MiFi 500 today (Saturday)! They just slapped a "FreedomPop" sticker over where it should say Sprint on the box , and pre-opened the box to put in their leaflet on how to get connected to the device It came pre-activated, it said it was activated on the 10th of October. So far so good - I was surprised that I got an LTE signal from where I am at: I did a Speedtest with these stats: Signal strength (RSRP): -112 dBm, Signal quality (RSRQ): -11 dB
  12. We don't know when one will be upgraded, but the ones that are upgraded for 4G aren't upgraded for 3G yet. So 3G still may be bad. I can tell you that the tower South of Milan IL has been upgraded for 3G (but not 4G), and speeds are around 2Mbit down.
  13. Very true - if only we know which are the 800 mhz . Verizon 700 mhz can go some crazy distances!
  14. LTE signals only travel about 5 miles on average...line of sight maybe 10 miles, in town with buildings, 2 miles.
