Question for the recent LTE users


Recommended Posts

Hey are you LTE recipients seeing better coverage inside buildings than you did with WiMax?

 

Well this lte buildout is on 1900mhz compared to wimax which is on 2400mhz so penetration will be much better.

I have 1/4 bar on 4G with my 3D inside my house.

 

Now I am getting 4/5 bar on HTC LTE on LTE inside the house.

 

Its different phone though.

 

The Clearwire equipment is likely on a different tower than Sprint is which would help signal strength but also Sprint uses 1900 MHz instead of 2500 MHz which helps for better indoor coverage. Be very happy with 4/5 bars for LTE. You'll get great speeds but remember to try to make WiFi use at home a habit to keep any unnecessary strain off Sprint so we can keep unlimited data longer.

I agree with this whole heartedly.... its easy to sit there and awe at your LTE speedtests on your couch, but for the foreseeable future, please switch to wifi... it would be pretty silly to watch netflix on lte in your house, just cause you can, doesn't mean you should.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
