Guess what time the switch will be thrown to LTE


Recommended Posts

Any guesses on the exact time Sprint will throw the switch on July 15th, and turn on LTE?

 

 

Mine is 3am!

 

I think it will go live early, by a day or two. I say, some time on Friday.

I wish it would have went live yesterday in the KC area. With all the All Star stuff going on, a little LTE would definitely help. On Sunday I was at the K (baseball stadium) and I couldn't stay connected to 3G. I would drop to 1xrtt at times, then roam on Verizon, then back to 3G.

I'm going to go with sometime early monday, like 3am. I doubt they would lauch a brand new network, with all the potential problems, on a friday/saturday/sunday when most of the customer service reps and techs are enjoying their weekend. But here's to hoping I'm wrong!

I am guessing a day or two early just in case there are any minor bugs that need to get worked out. I will be back in atlanta thursday evening so I will definitely be waiting.

Whatever happened to the HTC EVO 4G LTE software update that we have been expecting prior to LTE turn-on?

There is supposed to be an OTA update in July to fix Google Wallet, so it is hoped that several other fixes will be on board as well. http://www.pocketables.com/2012/07/google-says-that-official-fix-for-google-wallet-is-coming-soon-for-htc-evo-4g-lte.html

My favorite skit of his is weight and girth.

A new radio was included so its possible they made changes.

 

And I would expect them to address this issue covertly. Now, how soon do they stop blocking? :scratch:

    • 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.
