My son has started singing that song, they learned it in preschool a few weeks ago. Very cute

So something weird is happening that I can't explain. For the last several hours I haven't been able to get an lte signal on my evolte so I figured my fun was over and sprint made the lte signal not discoverable like the many other lte sites that are live. So anyway, I just pulled my gnex off the charger and low and behold my gnex is still getting an lte signal but no matter what I do my evolte can't get a signal. Can anyone give an explanation as to why both my phones are laying next to each other with one getting full bars of lte while the other one can't connect? If I didn't already own a gnex I would have never known the difference.

Maybe this is the LTE connectivity issue? :scratch:

Well whatever the potential issue may be, I hope they take care of it quickly.

If this is the LTE Connectivity issue, then I see why Sprint is blocking LTE Connections while they come up with a fix. This would be a huge publicity blow if people started having widespread LTE problems with their new EVO LTE's.

 

I can imagine all the whining and bitching on Sprint Users now. :P

Maybe it is, hope they fix this soon. All that lte goodness and the evolte is one hell of a combination, I was almost considering replacing my gnex with another evolte, but now I definitely won't.

Looks like its going to be the GS3 for me when they finally turn LTE on...although I heard the evolte has stronger antenna's.

Well as of a few minutes ago my gnex can no longer get an lte signal. So I guess its back to the waiting game. :(

I know they werent ideal but could you post those LTE speedtests?

Post #79 of this thread has some screen caps that I posted, I could also post ones that I did yesterday but those speeds on average were a lot slower.

I woke up this morning to 4g lte again, lets see how long it will last this time around.

Honeslty though, based on the few days of experiencing lte while having two different phones there is definitely a connectivity issue with the evolte. With the gnex I don't think I have ever lost connectivity at all while on 4g but there were a few times where I would lose connectivity with the evolte and had to either reset the phone or toggle cdma then back to lte/cdma so that I could reconnect to lte. It wasn't really that bad and sometimes it would just connect to lte by itself, at first it was no big deal being that they been working on the tower for a few days right up the road from my house but after paying closer attention it really wasn't happening to my gnex at all compared to my evolte.

Thanks for the corroboration of our reporting. I am really starting to feel more confident this is the reason why Sprint changed its mind from allowing discoverability at each LTE site as they go live to draconian blocking schemes.

 

I guess we can expect to see an OTA one day, then all of a sudden, LTE sites stop being blocked.

I am kind of glad that I have the gnex because without it I would be blaming sprint for their inconsistent lte service not realizing that it was the evolte itself and not their network, which like you said, makes sense for sprint to deny access at this time. I really considered selling my gnex to get yet another evolte but I think I would be better off having two different phones for comparative purposes.

Whats up bro, just woke up and I still have that 4g signal. Speeds are averaging even better than they were compared to yesterday. If you gonna be there at a certain time just let me know, I don't have anything else to do today.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I was in that area Friday morning early then went out of town. Deplorable data access on the network in Myrtle Beach. That's another story. I did test the LTE signal, I was at Southlake and although the phone showed full strength signal bars wise the best download speed I was able to obtain was 5.5Mbps down. I was not able to look at the actual signal strength. I will try again later this week.

Yeah, there is a rooftop tower on the roof of southlake mall but that one isn't schedule to have 4g until the end of july so I think its safe to say that you were still connected to the tower(a little over a mile away) close to my house. Over the weekend the 4g signal wasn't detectable anymore but this morning it was, unfortunately as of right now I can't detect a signal anymore so who knows what will happen later on this week.

what hardware version of the evo do you have. I am wandering if this is this or if there is a diff in version 001,002,003

 

I have hardware version 3, I wonder what other people have?

    • This site is built but not live. eNB 41150 is still live. eNB 41188 is decommissioned but as far as I can tell the site at 200 West 55th is not built yet. This site is live gNB 1346302. This site is live gNB 1092074 This site is live gNB 1371671 This site is live gNB 1371860 — — — — — Sprint eNB 6156 -> T-Mobile gNB 1349260 Sprint eNB Unknown -> T-Mobile gNB 1325016 — — — — — Bonus T-Mobile 5G small cell, gNB 1348688 in Queens:  
    • FTTH JVs are city by city as well, so it's not going to really be sector by sector. It sounds like TMo wants to be able to sell everyone home broadband, but if that requires building additional infrastructure that infra will take the form of FTTH builds rather than mobile densification. Which involves tradeoffs, but the product is better than e.g. what AT&T is doing for me right now, which is offering only Internet Air in an area where they have 100/20 DSL available but not (yet) fiber.
    • Hopefully they do not wait until these sectors get so overloaded that they start getting nasty reviews and people abandon them. Getting fiber coverage to the area of a overloaded sector can take a year or more. I also question if this can all be managed.  Lots of sectors all over the country can get congested fairly quick.  Lots of work and money to get fiber installed and there goes the profitability on the venture.
    • MoffetNathanson Conference This is a conference where the CFO talks telecom financial analysts so obviously it takes a return on investment approach.  Broadly T-Mobile divides there world into top 100 markets (60%) and small town/rural (40%). They ultimately want to have at least 1/3 market share in rural. They also look at demographics like 50+ and Hispanic.  Reputation is now starting to help them with CIOs.  Did mention c-band buildout beginning in major cities as well as continued band migration to 5g. IMO they may become more aggressive at offering 5g phones to LTE holdover and 5g users without VoNR at a future date. mmWave not discussed. Price increases not discussed iirc. Did mention spectrum purchases from speculators. $9 billion all goes through same ROI process. FWA is down to hexagonal patterns by sector of fallow spectrum. Fiber JVs will go where sectors are overloaded.
    • I am lucky to be served by an excellent fiber ISP and that is the only reason I haven't tried TMOs FWA. Once you go fiber, it is REALLY hard to go back. The choice of sub-10ms ping times is a very artificial bucket, FWA will seldom get much below 10ms ping times but fiber regularly gets me 1-3ms ping times. Basically, at around those times, the speed of light and the distance you are from the server become the limiting factors. As an aside, my internet provider, ZiplyFiber, has been awesome. They peer like crazy at all the major IX in the area and, as a result, you end up with what essentially amounts to direct fiber connections to the vast majority of major data sources. While it isn't sexy, it makes my 1Gb/1Gb connection load pages significantly faster than my works 10Gb/10Gb connection. On the "sexy" side, they are also fastest ISP in the nation. They offer up to 50Gb/50Gb via a direct fiber connection to the router, albeit for an eye watering $900/mo.
