Yea I am south of cleveland dont know if I am getting LTE. Correct me if I'm wrong bit I think that all the towers at some point will have LTE. Also I wonder if in 2014 there will be like a 5g on Verizon

Sprint markets are huge, as you can see in the image below the Cleveland market takes up quite a large percentage of the state.

Verizon probably won't have anything better than LTE in 2014, LTE is a solid standard and it's probably going to be around for quite awhile.

The next evolution in mobile wireless data is LTE Advanced, which does not come even close to 5G standards. Also, Verizon's LTE network is not LTE Advanced ready in the way that Sprint's is. Sprint may even be able to beat Verizon to market with LTE Advanced.

 

However, I don't think consumers are going to be willing to pay more for faster speeds than LTE. LTE will provide a service that will meet 99.99999% of consumers mobile data needs. They may desire more coverage, but I don't think they will desire more speeds. Especially if they have to pay more for it.

 

As for Sprint LTE coverage, if you currently get native Sprint 3G coverage, you will also get Sprint LTE coverage before they complete your market and leave the area.

Would LTE Advanced help if LTE starts getting conjested with a bunch of people?

 

No. LTE Advanced just uses the same carriers. Deploying on more spectrum is the only thing that will help congestion.

Hi pyroscott' date='

 

Do u have any idea of the difference between LTE or LTE Advanced

LTE Advanced supports carrier aggregation allowing for faster speeds. That's the main thing. It is an improved version of LTE. Much like the changes from EVDO rev 0 to rev a and rev b. Each time it was faster and more efficient.

I'm pretty sure it also makes way for upstream MIMO, which will bring about faster upload speeds at the very least.

Yes, 4x4 MIMO support (both ways) and Carrier Aggregation are the two largest factors of LTE Advanced. Although, getting four diverse Tx/Rx MIMO antennas seems like a very large feat in the limited real estate within a smartphone.

Does anybody know when sprint is gonna start the 2nd round markets?

We are three quarters the way through our Second Round article series. Each article tells you about the details for each market. Also, the Network Vision Deployment Running list shows that info: http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/212-network-visionlte-deployment-running-list/

Last I checked LTE doesn't even completely meet the original 4g standards. Didn't they lower the 4g standard so that it includes LTE/Wimax? I still say calling HSPA+ 4G is just plain lies.

Yes, LTE Advanced will be the first true 4G standard. So I'm sure Tmo marketing geniuses will try to call it 5G.

    • The Kendall/Kerr/Gillespie PCS swap is a very nice win-win for AT&T and T-Mobile. Means both of them will have a 20x20 PCS channel, though in exchange T-Mobile goes from 10x10 to 5x5 on one of their spectrum blocks. I figure AT&T will start running n2 DSS on that channel, as they have enough customers in those areas to need the capacity, while T-Mobile will probably just run B2 LTE, as once Auction 108 finally clears they'll have plenty of n41 to play with. Guessing we'll see the non-G-block 5x5 slice running n25, but it would get aggregated with n71 rather than n41 I figure as n71 will remain 20x20 there until the STA goes away (and maybe after that, as if T-Mobile gets 700 MHz as the result of VZW buying West Central Wireless's spectrum there's no reason to run LTE in 600). Which makes me think that the next move is T-Mobile trading 700A for the 5x5 of orphaned PCS (E block) to VZW once the WCW transaction closes, as that would give VZW 20x20 PCS in the area, and would give T-Mobile 700 MHz in an area where they have none. Then VZW can either trade 700B to T-Mobile as well in exchange for the AWS I block in those areas (gives T-Mobile 10x10 B12, gives VZW 15x15 B66) or they can cut a deal with AT&T to give AT&T 10x10 B12 (AT&T has the lower C block), but I'm not sure what that deal would be if trading like for like (vs. AT&T handing VZW their upper tiny slice of B5, giving VZW 15x15 to play with in that band post-WCW-acquisition). EDIT: Just looked at AWS spectrum again, and if AT&T would rather have 10x10 B12 than 2x 10x10 AWS, they could swap AWS-D for VZW's 700B block. That would give VZW 20x20 AWS, and would take AT&T down to 10x10 + 5x5...which they'd likely be fine with as they have 20x20 PCS, small cells in the busy areas, and as a result of the transaction three 10x10 chunks of spectrum in the area below 1 GHz. And if VZW traded 700A to T-Mobile for PCS-E VZW would have 20x20 PCS as well. Which is quite useful in an area that's macro-only for VZW and likely not dense enough for proper mobile usage of CBRS or C-Band (and an area where VZW doesn't even run DSS now).
    • Yeah, $250 credit for an S22 is awful. tbf last year they didn't have solid upgrade credits until mid-late April, which is when I paid $225 to swap my S21 for an S22. Happy to wait 'til then for that kind of deal, though I'll be annoyed at battery life in the mean time.
    • Miserable upgrade credits from Samsung this year unless you want to rely on carrier financing. Sticking with S22U for a while. 
    • So far we've documented close to 100 Sprint conversions in NYC with permits still rolling in and that's only what we've identified manually. Tons of sites get converted/updated without permits so there's potentially a lot more that we haven't spotted yet. There are also dozens of sites that are still broadcasting the keep PLMN, some have been decommissioned but historically the vast majority have been converted.
