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.

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.

No, my phone worked better 3 weeks ago than it does now, lol. Funny, yet kinda stupid commercial.

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.

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.
