  1. I am presently customer of the old Clearwire for home internet service. By twist of fate, there are no other high-speed internet providers in my area - NOTHING! - unless you consider satellite services. Clearwire was reluctant to give me a CLEAR EXPRESS HUB and sign me up originally because my home is literally shown to be in a marginal area of service. My lot was shown to be covered but not the adjacent lots (not sure how that happens?). Anyway, they gave me the modem and I experience around 6 Mbps downloads and 1 Mbps uploads (with an outside antenna). For someone coming off dial-up and satellite (Wildblue) these speeds were terrific! I am happy! I understand my service is not as good as many others, but for this area it is fabulous! With the recent announcements that Clearwire's Wimax service will be phased out by the end of 2015 - I am on pins and needles waiting for the other shoe to drop. I live in Canal Winchester (suburb of Columbus, OH) and would be devastated If I lost my Clearwire service and we are not part of some Sprint LTE upgrade that will allow us to obtain high-speed internet when Clearwire goes away Why isn't Sprint more open about their future plans to provide service to areas they acquired from Clearwire, including types of services and time frames other then generalities that I sometimes see published. The tower I ping off of is located in Columbus (moderate density housing) and I have to believe that Columbus (15th largest city in the USA) would be near the top. The tower is 3 to 4 miles away.
  2. Hello, I am wondering if anyone knows how the upgrade to LTE Advanced will go? Is it just a software upgrade? Or are they going to have to go to every cell site and do some physical hardware upgrade? Is it true Sprint is going to move LTE to the 850 mhz spectrum occupied by IDEN when they finally get rid of nextel? Will this require new hardware? I'm just trying to understand how long it will actually be until sprint has comparable service to ATT and VZ. It looks like its going to be at least 6 months, probably closer to a year. Thanks for any help you're able to offer.
  3. Original story: http://mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSBRE8B20XC20121203?irpc=932 My opinion: Samsung is bidding lower than Ericsson on some projects and winning those bids...and deploying faster than Ericsson in some cases (e.g. NV). So Ericsson wants to stop looking slow and expensive...by slowing Samsung down and making them more expensive. I really hope that they can come to a reasonable resolution on this issue, since otherwise both Ericsson and Samsung NV builds could be slowed. And Ericsson in particular shouldn't get any slower than it already is.
  4. I was in the zip codes of 33993 and 33991 today and did some speed tests on speedtest.net I got speeds of about .8 Mbps with peek rates of 1 Mbps. I tried to upload pictures but the uploader said files were to large but even though they were below the maximum file size
  5. Any idea when Pittsburgh will see LTE turned on?
  6. Network Vision/LTE - Chicago Market

    I just want to start a topic just for the Chicago land area deployment. If anyone has any updates on this please post below. I've been having some major issues lately with dropped calls, missing and late texts, and very slow data speeds. I know that it isn't my phone since both my personal and work phones are Sprint and they both have been having similar issues as of late. Thanks everyone!!
  7. We use this thread to keep track of all the markets announced or completed with Network Vision and LTE deployment. It will be Pinned to the top of the Network Vision Forum. This will be convenient for linking so you can post in other threads and forums. TOTAL NUMBER OF MARKETS (99) FIRST ROUND MARKETS (14): First round markets have no preceding markets before them. NV OEM's will mobilize in these markets and begin deployment. These markets will deploy slowly as there is a significant learning curve to Network Vision. Most first round markets started between December 2011 and March 2012. Atlanta/Athens Austin Baltimore Boston Central Jersey Chicago DFW (Dallas/Ft. Worth) Houston Kansas (Kansas City/Wichita) LA Metro (Los Angeles/Long Beach) New York City San Antonio SF Bay (San Francisco/Oakland) Washington DC Updated as of Friday, March 6, 2015.
