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.

    • Hey folks, I haven't been around here in a long time. I guess I just got distracted by other things, especially after Sprint 4G LTE became commonly available for me.   Then, in February of 2018, I defected from Sprint to T-Mobile. That move allowed me to get on the "T-Mobile ONE 55+" plan, (yeah, I'm an old geezer) and at the time, grab a limited time offer add-on called "ONE Plus International" that adds a lot of features, but most importantly "UNLIMITED 4G LTE Hotspot" on a phone.   The move was both for the service and price. I was paying Sprint $179 for service on one phone, and one USB 3G modem. The modem was what kept me with Sprint for so long. I bought it in 2007, when mobile data was just starting to catch on in popularity. Everyone else had low data caps and high overage charges at the time, but, Sprint was slow to jump on that bandwagon. They even had an ad campaign at the time, something like: "Use all the data you want, have fun"! I bought the modem outright, and paid $59.99/mo for unlimited 3G data. As an over the road truck driver, at the time, that was the same price I paid Comcast for home Internet, that was hardly home to use. I canceled Comcast, and that USB thing became my only non-phone Internet connection.   The bad part of that was, shortly after I got that deal, Sprint discontinued that plan, and I was stuck. If I made ANY changes to that line/device, I would lose that plan, and have to take whatever offers were current. I couldn't activate any new device on the data account. So I milked that device and plan for just over 11 years, until Feb. 2018. After so long, the device was struggling, and the data was just damn slow.   After my upgrade to T-Mobile, I have my main phone, (currently a OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren edition), an Aristo 2 Plus, used mostly as a hotspot, and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10" with unlimited 4G LTE, all for $132.41. About $45 a month less than what I gave Sprint, and I have one extra device, and all with much faster data.   On Sprint, my average speed was usually less than 15/2, on T-Mobile I get over 100 down and around 40 up.   Of course with this arrangement, one day I will find myself in a similar situation, a line stuck on old tech, even though I CAN upgrade my T-Mobile device, the data add-on specifically says "4G LTE data", So I hope that sticks around for a while as 5G becomes a thing. If I make any changes on that line, I will lose that add-on.           Sorry for all the rambling, I just looked at all the stuff I just typed, and can't bring myself to delete all that work. I guess I just got nostalgic when Facebook on Tuesday showed me a memory post from 2013, the pics are below. My first cell phone was a Nextel, that's how I wound up on Sprint, after that merger. It was 7 years ago already, that Sprint shut off Nextel. Now, Sprint is about to be shut off by T-Mobile. Everything changes. You can't see the date on the pic with "NO SIGNAL", those old Nextel phones didn't even have a proper clock, it just displayed what the network sent it, so, no signal, no clock. How far we have come.   Anyway, I guess with the merger, I'm back in the family, so here I am looking to learn about a new rollout, this time 5G on 2.5 GHz, specifically in the West Michigan area.   Sent from my HD1925 using Tapatalk      
    • https://techcrunch.com/2020/07/01/dish-closes-boost-mobile-purchase-following-t-mobile-sprint-merger/   This deal should help free up some more capital for New T-Mobile now that Boost and Virgin Mobile are officially in Dish’s hands.     Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • Okay, I have now ordered the A71 to replace my G7 based on your assurance.
    • I did not know how long it took to go from dev to public but i have the dev profile on this phone and public profile on my ipad, and of course i expect my phone will get the next update and there are a few minor glitches which i have submitted so hope to see them addressed...mostly app weirdness as I expect some apps will have to get some updates to work properly with ios 14+
