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

Brian Regan is my favorite comedian. He is so funny!

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:

    • Some more interesting articles on Dish: https://www.fiercewireless.com/5g/dish-wireless-bakes-core-principles-infrastructure-chua https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/dish-eyes-5g-network-reliability-vericas-chaos-engineering-platform    
    • Financially makes sense, but may put them far behind T-Mobile and Verizon 5g marketing.  Could put them up against Dish if Dish gets their act together and starts their public network in Las Vegas in late February.
    • Fiercewireless put out an article today.  Sounds like AT&T wont get heavily started until later this year when equipment will be more available that supports both 3.45GHz and C-Band.
    • They are using DSS on B5 here, on one carrier. LTE-only on the other AFAIK. I kinda hope AT&T doesn't turn DSS on in markets where dropping H+ bumps them from 5x5 for everything else to 10x10. They have 10x10 of B14 and 5x5-10x10 of B12 to throw users on, and with the delays to their C-Band deployment due to waiting for gear their network is effectively LTE-only in many areas despite an increasing proportion of 5G phones. The network was doing just fine without the extra B5 bandwidth, so not a whole lot of reason to basically go backwards when they said they're dropping 3G to expand 5G.
