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

They just press the big red easy button on Dan's desk at Sprint HQ :)

 

Actually, it is a flip switch...

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

 

"Go...switch flipper!"

 

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:

How is your girth doing, Robert? About 3 girth units?

    • Good catch! I meant 115932/119932. Edited my original post I've noticed the same thing lately and have just assumed that they're skipping it now because they're finally able to deploy mmWave small cells.
    • At some point over the weekend, T-Mobile bumped the Omaha metro from 100+40 to 100+90 of n41! That's a pretty large increase from what we had just a few weeks ago when we were sitting at 80+40Mhz. Out of curiosity, tested a site on my way to work and pulled 1.4Gpbs. That's the fastest I've ever gotten on T-Mobile! For those that know Omaha, this was on Dodge street in Midtown so not exactly a quiet area!
    • Did you mean a different site? eNB ID 112039 has been around for years. Streetview even has it with C-band back in 2022 - https://www.google.com/maps/@40.7303042,-73.9610924,3a,24.1y,18.03h,109.66t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1s2ossx06yU56AYOzREdcK-g!2e0!5s20220201T000000!6shttps:%2F%2Fstreetviewpixels-pa.googleapis.com%2Fv1%2Fthumbnail%3Fpanoid%3D2ossx06yU56AYOzREdcK-g%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.share%26w%3D900%26h%3D600%26yaw%3D18.027734930682684%26pitch%3D-19.664180274382204%26thumbfov%3D90!7i16384!8i8192?coh=205410&entry=ttu Meanwhile, Verizon's eNB 84484 in Fort Greene has been updated to include C-band and CBRS, but not mmWave. I've seen this a few times now on updated Verizon sites where it's just the CBRS antenna on its own, not in a shroud and without mmWave. Odd.
    • Drove out into the country today.  Dish stuck to my phone like glue. At least -120 rsrp. Likely only good for phone calls (should have tested.) It then switched to T-Mobile. Getting back on Dish was another issue. I am used to dragging out coverage so I expected a few miles, but had to drive at least 10 miles towards a Dish site. Airplane mode, which worked for Sprint, did nothing. Rebooting did nothing. Finally got it to change over about 2 miles from the site by manually setting the carrier to Dish then it had great reception. Sprint used to have a 15 minute timeout but I did not have the patience today.  Previously I did a speed test on Dish out in the country at the edge of Dish coverage. My speeds were 2g variety. Dish has really overclocked some of these sites. Seen rssp readings in the 50s. Would have called them boomer sites with Sprint but much  more common with Dish.
