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

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.

There shall be LTE in Cincinnati when Mike Brown becomes a good NFL owner.

 

So let it be written; so let it be done...

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.
