When will LTE have an official date?


Recommended Posts

Since there isn't any updates on Sprint's site. When is the official date that 4G LTE will be live' date=' and unlocked for customers?[/quote']

 

No one knows. In docs I have seen say Sprint "Business Teams" will make the final determination. However, none of my sources are even sure who these "Business Teams" even are. Once we know, we will be certain to let you know.

Uh oh... Can you see how this doomsday scenario could play out?

 

NV doesn't go live until 2014 when Dan Hesse finally asks who is on these "Business Teams" and everyone realizes they don't exist. By then, all towers have been ready to go for a while, so Sprint flips the switch nationwide overnight 2 years from today.

im about to make a wild and crazy accusation....... tmobile are going straight to LTE-Advanced, with AWS spectrum, is that correct?

 

Yeah, I believe so. They are still pushing out HSPA 42+, with AT&T spectrum they had from the Merger-failure. I believe they scraped the HSPA 84+ idea for LTE instead.

wont this make tmobile the first true 4G network, as LTE Advanced is the 3GPP's definition of 4G, and LTE standard apart of 3G..... also doesn't tmobile have unlimited data (with throttling)....just seems like they will go head to head directly with sprint.

For Sprint, LTE Advanced is an extremely easy upgrade.

Edit: Maybe we need an alcohol related sub-forum?

for Chicago - are they going to wait till the whole area is ready to flip the switch? I understand the Elgin --> Rockford area is complete (which is where I live) so would be nice if they turned that on soon....

    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
    • I believe one of the merger conditions was they had offer to sell it to Dish.  EDIT: Oops didn't see that this had already been answered.
