There are 54 live LTE sites in the Houston Sprint market. However, Sprint is actively blocking connections to the LTE network at the moment. I have seen a couple of reports where people have been able to connect around Houston, but then they get blocked after a couple of days.

 

It is unknown when Sprint will stop blocking LTE connections. Since there will be a couple of market launches in June, you think they will have to stop blocking around that time.

Yeah there were 2 locations ( near midtown and near university of Houston ) that was able to connect to when I was in those locations and then after about 2 weeks, I was no longer able to connect to em. I was just wondering when they'd stop blocking them

Just for reference sake, how many sites are there total in the Houston market? I want to get an idea of what percentage of towers have been completed.

I am heading there on Thursday and hope to get a LTE signal to do a few speed tests and maybe even stream some Netfilx or Hulu

I just got back from a trip in Houston, Texas. During this trip I noticed amazing signal almost every where I went. I usually had 4-5 bars on my Galaxy Nexus inside buildings and outside which is pretty good. Speeds usually were about .5-.7 Mbps on 3G. Sadly I was unable to connect to 4G LTE during my trip even though I was near several sites that are reported as on according to the interactive maps. Dumb Sprint blocking us early adapters from using LTE. In late June and early July I am heading to Chicago and will due a similar report after getting back home.

It maxes out at 2.6Mbps in real world conditions. Did someone say it was higher than that?

Sorry Jackrage. This is meant to be a forum for info that is run by some smart people. There is no room on this forum for you to be complaining. Please take it somewhere else. And as the owner said before, this is hard to read. Goodbye.

somebody always got to be an odd ball does it really matter it is both the same thing

First of all, this forum is not that type of forum that allows name calling so I'm reporting you.

Second a simple internet search or basic knowledge of data speed knows that the difference is huge.

.5Mbps is not the same as 5Mbps. .5 is half of one Mbps, or 500kbps. So the member is not odd, but actually accurate.

That was bragging? Hmm. I took it as clarification so that the people who come here looking for information don't get confused.
