I'll be testing/tethering in Fort Worth 7/18...

Just added the $20 Mobile Hotspot (2GB) plan to my account, since I'd like to test out LTE on something other than my phone (without rooting it) when I'm in Fort Worth Wed-Sun, and the San Antonio area Sun-Tue. It'll be hard to hold myself to just 2GB, but that should be enough data to thoroughly test how fast Sprint LTE is once it's live in those regions.

 

I'll probably cancel the addon once I get back to Colorado though, since I do have other ways of getting connectivity on the go (T-Mobile HSPA+ data stick and Verizon LTE iPad). But the tethering plan should be fun while it lasts (and a heck of a better deal versus Verizon's 1GB, $20 plan).

 

EDIT: According to the Sites Complete map, I'll be ~1.22 miles from one completed site, and ~2.07 from another, when I've arrived at my destination in Fort Worth.

Is this $20/month add-on service prorated per day, like the previous service priced at $30/month was?

If you remove it before the end of the bill cycle it will pro rate.

Good to know. My billing cycle goes from the 8th to the 7th of each month, so I'll end up well within the refund period (will probably kill the addon sometime on the 25th). I'm curious though what wuld happen if I used, say, 1.5GB or so during that less-than-half-a-month that I have tethering...I suppose the system prorates by days rather than by megabytes but I'll find out soon enough.

 

If it does prorate per-day, I may re-add the mobile hotspot feature again in mid-August, just in case Time Warner Cable doesn't arrive as scheduled to install 'net in my new place...though I do have a T-Mobile data stick with 5GB per month that I could also use :P

    • 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.
