Network Vision/LTE - Cincinnati Market

Recommended Posts

I searched the forum and could not find any answers or information. Was wondering if anyone knows when cincinnati may get working 4g lte? I was told by sprint sales person that the towers are up and should be full working within 2 months, but i believe thats just a lie to try and get me to sign a 2yr contract.

Thanks

Codie is right. Deployment will not begin in the Cincy market until sometime in 2013.

Sing along, everybody...

 

 

 

Baby, if you've ever wondered,

Wondered whatever became of me,

I'm waiting on the airlink in Cincinnati,

Cincinnati, LTE.

 

Got kind of tired packing and unpacking,

Tower to tower and up and down the band,

Maybe LTE and me were never meant to be,

But Sprint think of me once in awhile.

 

I'm waiting on LTE in Cincinnati...

I live in Cincinnati (Clifton area) and I work up in West Chester. I feel like I have been seeing better data speeds, especially compared to a few months ago. I stream music all the way up the I-75 corridor and speeds were so bad I couldnt stream a song without buffering multiple times. Now there are only a few spots where its like that.

That was a great show. I still meet people who, when they find out I'm from Cincinnati, think that's a real station.

Somebody correct me if I am wrong but I don't think the Iphone will tell if it is on eHRPD just "Cellular"

According to Bollar, I think if you go into the Field Test screens using *3001#12345#* you might be able to see it there... All I can do is look and see

I have a theory for LTE in Cincinnati and I hope my theory is totally wrong.

 

We have Wimax and I doubt that when LTE makes it here it wont be of the 1900 Mhz variety but rather of the 800 Mhz flavor.

 

I think that we will get 800 Mhz LTE shortly after IDEN is shut off next summer.

 

This also means the current batch of LTE devices wouldnt be able to use it anyway because they only can use the 1900 Mhz band.

 

I really hope im wrong but I think I own a device that will never see LTE in its lifetime while in the Cincinnati area.

Why would Sprint not deploy 1900 MHz LTE in Cincinnati when they are deploying it on every cell site (except a small percentage that cannot be upgraded)?

You might see both 1900 and 800 MHz LTE in the roll out at the time, but the claim that you will never see 1900 MHz is ridiculous.

    • So after waiting 2 hrs in line at the apple store I finally have a 11 pro. I can tell you the reception is alittle better then last years iPhones. It is a lot better then the unlocked s10 plus I was using which anything above -112 was useless. 
    • Yes we do. 60 MHz NR + 60 MHz LTE out of M-MIMO equipment. DSS will be deployed soon and 40-60 MHz will remain used for LTE on small cells/MBs.  As far as LTE goes, Sprint ran between 60 MHz and 100 MHz on macro sites with 20-60 MHz used for small cells/MBs. The actual numbers varied from market to market. In Seattle, Sprint runs 100 MHz of L2500 on macros, 40 MHz on small cells, and MBs have their own dedicated channel.  Only in areas lacking contiguous spectrum. 60 MHz will be the norm.  Let's not start this discussion again, please. 
    • I'm just saying it will not happen as whomever buys Sprint will want B41. Not every area has 160 mhz. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
    • We don't know what Sprint is going to do with 5G.  I don't even think for 4G they used all of its 160 GHz of 2.5 GHz spectrum.  Even in early 5G deployments Sprint is only deploying 40 MHz of 2.5 GHz spectrum.  Also we dont know how long Sprint will continue to operate as a company with all of its debt and declining customer base.
    • New update is out for the unlocked. It looks like just a September security update. Sent from my SM-G973U1 using Tapatalk
