So the rep that told me LTE is going live in September is full of it? The LA area is not going to light up till December now?

 

We are talking about launch. LA will not launch in September. However, I think that some sites with start going live this month. They just probably will come and go until launch.

I hope they do this again. I remember Wimax was active in my area well before launch.

I was just down by Marina del Rey .... I enjoyed the fast sprint network I had there... along with the beautiful sun. :D

There are several completed NV sites in Marina del Rey. You probably were on completed sites. You can see them in the NV Sites Complete maps in the Sponsors section.

the south bay is horrible speeds =( I get about0.3- 0.30 down on average... really can't wait for nv sites to go up here in Hawthorne' date=' Torrance , Gardena areas =( Cmon sprint make us happy![/quote']

 

In Gardena there is already 1 NV complete site right off the 110 just south of the 105. And the area was broadcasting eHRPD data the last time I was down there, and I had much better data speeds just with the eHRPD.

I've asked often and regularly. There is no official information on LTE release. If a rep told you something it was most likely their own personal opinon/guess and they just failed to point that out. In fact, it wouldn't be a surprise at all if that was an opinion partially based on what he/she learned on this forum.

hello robert, on your maps for members you have "LA Metro Sites Complete = 13%; Anticipated LTE Launch = October 2012

...Original Scheduled Completion = January 2013; Current Production Rate Completion = November 2012"

up until today the completion date was 2014 and now its November 2012. is that right or just mistype?

That's a typo. It should be November 2013. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

 

The current production rate completion date is always variable depending on the current production rate. So you will always see this fluctuate. But not by that much! :lol:

 

This date is figured this way: If Sprint subcontractors continued to complete sites at the rate it has for the past 2-4 weeks, how long would it take to complete the market?

 

Since speed picked up a little in the LA Market, the date moved up to November 2013. If it slows down, the date will go further out. If it speeds up, then you will see this date move closer.

I am not 100% but I am inclined to say that the stretch of the 405 that goes over the hill (from the valley over tosanta monica) has a bit faster 3G as of a month or so ago. There is still a patch where data cuts out but I also think coverage got a little better. I didn't clock speeds or I would compare.

I was just down there the weekend before Labor Day weekend and my speeds were still suffering up the 405 and the data drops were really bad for me.

That is a quickly aging phone. Apparently my GNex is a male because I just put it in a sporty new case...

 

Why must all my Android phones be defective and many other people have no problems?

One of the first thing I learned about smartphones: Never get a budget device.. you're going to be in contract for two years (typically).. you're better off paying just slightly more and getting a flagship phone. Typically the extra 50 to 100 dollars is night and day. And, 50 to 100 dollars over a 2 year contract aint much. Worth every penny, IMO.

Well, you did buy a LG after all...

 

True

Now you tell me, lol. I knew the whole paying $30.00 for this phone on contract must have been a gimmick, lol.

Phone years are like dog years: one human year equals roughly 40 phone years. That is why your phone is about ready to die after two years when you are eligible for an upgrade.

 

Plus, Josh hates vegetables. So, he feeds his phone lots of hormone laden meat, and that causes his phone to mature faster.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
