Sprint announces LTE launched


Recommended Posts

I think this is a smart move by Sprint PR. Instead of just launching 2 markets by end of June and then launching a few more in July, combine them with the July markets except for Baltimore. This gives all the LTE launch markets another 2.5 weeks to get their act together and get as many NV towers up as they can. I am too curious why Baltimore is not part of the initial LTE launch markets.

Yes, I knew it was gonna be on july 15th, that was my guess all along. My reasoning for my guess was because of the current evo lte give away currently going on at sprint that ends July 15th. Also, my birthday is July 15th as well :)

Well, I have been thinking seriously about selling my gnex and replacing it with a gs3. Like I had mentioned in another thread, my gnex doesn't like it when I travel, it takes on a mind of its own whenever I am not in atlanta. I will probably keep it though, since more than likely my gnex will see a jellybean rom well before any other phone anyway.

Never did Sprint say any of these markets were launching together, or that Baltimore would launch in conjunction with any specific city. Each of these market deployments is completely independent of each other. I'm actually they announced five for July 31st. I was expecting Kansas City to possibly be held back also with Baltimore.

 

All of these markets were slated for a Mid 2012 launch. Mid 2012 is roughly Memorial Day to Labor Day. If Baltimore is not launched by the first week of September, then it can be called late.

 

As we mentioned in our article, it is no surprise that Baltimore is not launching. Alcatel/Lucent doesn't even have their first LTE site up and running in the market yet.

Looks like you'll be receiving a nice birthday present :)

Very cool. Can't wait. :D

 

danielholt: Really bad timing for you since you said you are leaving the Atlanta/Athens area.

I guess you are going to a undisclosed non-LTE location?

 

Mav. :cool:

I might pick up a Viper since they are relatively inexpensive ($200) on eBay. Just so I have a phone that isn't as expensive to replace as the GSIII. If I do that though, I will drop TEP since it's now eleven bucks a month.

Yeah, I am thinking about dropping it as well.

Wonder if there will be some kind of OTA for the EVO LTE before July 15th then.

 

That's a very good question.

I'll be in Fort Worth for a few days starting the 18th, after which I'll probably end up in San Antonio for a few hours at least. I'll be sure to test out LTE thoroughly while I'm there. I can even compare with T-Mobile (DC-)HSPA+ and Verizon LTE...though the comparisons might not be fair since I'm comparing effectively data cards (T-Mobile Rocket 3, VZW iPad 3) with a phone.

The only LTE device I'm missing at this point is a Viper. If they are only $200 cash, maybe I should look into getting one? It'd be great for the radio performance test.

I want your job where I can get a GS3, an EVO LTE, and a Viper :)

    • Sounds like an awesome project—keep us posted on how it’s going! Also—if you’re able to figure out logging, I can work with you to get the data uploaded to SignalCheck. 
    • Yesterday, I saw a post on Facebook from an old friend about the Evolve III Maestro, a $60 laptop (at Micro Center) that apparently has an LTE modem in it.  Specifically, the Quectel EC25-AF*.  The nearest Micro Center was sold out of new ones, but offered open box at $48.  So for $51 after tax, I walked out this morning with one.  An absolute steal. I backed up the Windows product key and then put Kubuntu 22.04 on it.  I spent a lot of time today trying to get the build tools installed so I could get the wifi module installed and running, and once I did that, I pretty quickly got to sending it modem commands, which I've never done before.  I don't have a SIM in it yet, but it does seem to function as it should.  (I figured out the command to get Timing Advance values out of it, but without a SIM, I doubt it would have such values.) Now I'm trying to puzzle out how to write some kind of script or small program to use it for logging purposes.  I think I've worked out how to send commands to it from bash using socat, but I need to pick specific commands to run.  I'd actually like to replace some of my phones with this if I can get it to record cells, with GPS, and cycle through a set of bands repeatedly.  My current phone collection consists of 9 phones other than my main S21FE, and they require babysitting while I'm logging.  It'd be nice to pare that down to a more reasonable number and let the computer do the work, hopefully in the back seat with less babysitting. - Trip ===== * Per the spec sheet, it supports B2/4/5/12/13/14/66/71.  That'd cover all of Verizon and US Cellular LTE, all but B29/30 on AT&T, and all but B41 and Sprint Keep on B26 for T-Mobile. 
    • More bizarre.  I just updated my other Ace without issue. - Trip  
    • Looking over the data so far, bidders can go back and reopen bidding on licenses that appeared settled. In the list below, not all counties are listed and only states with excess demand.  Typically 3 licenses per county for rural areas and some urban areas. Here is how many licenses per state had demand greater than supply: State count AK 3 AL 14 AR 3 AS 6 AZ 9 CA 12 CO 76 DE 6 FL 10 GA 66 GU 3 HI 3 IA 99 ID 47 IL 39 IN 43 KS 231 KY 23 LA 14 MA 5 MD 16 ME 1 MI 86 MN 9 MO 79 MP 12 MS 73 MT 69 NC 26 ND 109 NE 18 NH 13 NJ 6 NM 51 NV 24 NY 13 OH 29 OK 9 OR 30 PA 24 PR 25 SC 20 SD 83 TN 76 TX 236 UT 49 VA 22 VT 5 WA 65 WI 59 WV 26 WY 29
    • Looks like Dish has already taken back the 5x5 of n71 they leased to T-Mobile, and instead of narrowing NR here T-Mobile has gone for broke and made 600 NR-only. They can afford to do that here thanks to B12, and don't need to do that west of here because they weren't leasing 600 from Dish. Does mean that Dish is 10x10 for n71 here (which explains the 30ish Mbps upload peak I saw yesterday). Darned speculators hogging the remainder of the band So T-Mobile is running 140 + 15x15 MHz sub-6 NR here. AT&T is 40 + 15-45x15-45 (15x15 n5, occasional 15x15 DSS on n2 and/or n66 though I haven't seen both in the same area). VZW is 60 + 15x15, with the latter being n2 DSS. Wonder how soon VZW will try n48.
