Mee too I cannot wait untill LTE starts rolling here in Riverside County, I get decent speeds on 3G but when LTE rolls out my Evo will finally be put to the test :lol:

 

When I went to school at ucr, service was rock solid. I might be working in clairmont soon, any news for nv in that area? don't see anything on sensorly or the sb/riverside topic.

My buddy got 27 down/10 up near the Chinese consulate the other day. i am amped for the LA Metro LTE launch!

I was in the Whittier area visiting my GF's family on 3 different weekends and averaged 20+D/8+U. Can't wait to see what it does when it's live and configured perfectly.

I would be happy with 20 down speeds but I just wish the general population does not abuse the use of unlimited...I see teens all the time steaming YouTube videos using like a free spotify service, not even looking at the video...

I was in Koreatown this weekend and got a solid 4G signal near Olympic/Western.

It was around 6mbps down/1mbps up. Much better than 3G service, but not the 20+/10+ I was expecting.

 

I wonder what the 4G speeds will be like in the IE once it finally rolls out here.

You likely had a pretty weak LTE signal. http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/2040-bars-lie-for-lte-signal-strength-how-to-determine-your-actual-lte-signal-strength/

Interesting ... http://shop2.sprint....an_details.html

This sounds like 6-8mbps download is going to be the typical speed ... 25mbps being peak speeds.

 

They only guarantee 6-8 because most people will not understand that they need really good signal to get the max speeds. Also, in an area where the cell sites are loaded up, speeds will start to slow into the 6-8 Mbps range.

So do you have LTE?

If so, what is your typical download/upload speed?

Can you send a screenshot?

At my parents in KC with LTE fully deployed in their local area, I get 10-15Mbps at my house at any given time. Around town, I get have gotten speeds up to 32Mbps, though it's typically between 10 and 20. I don't spend a lot of time doing speed tests, as I know that since I have LTE, it will be fast enough for anything I need to do.

That's awesome!

So it sounds like it is reasonable to expect 10-20mbps download speeds when LTE is finally deployed in the Inland Empire!

 

Can't wait!

 

In places with a very good signal, yes.

What I meant to say was that I just started picking up this eHRPD signal. Is this a good sign for LTE in my area?

 

eHRPD has been available since last fall for the whole market as I had it driving around the market back in October/November. I've noticed the Galaxy Nexus doesn't like to maintain eHRPD like other phones do. the Riverside/San Bernardino market has been in active deployment for a while now. LTE has not been enabled just yet, but it should start coming live soon for the Inland Empire.

Thank you for your quick replies and yes, my Nexus is witching from EVDO A to eHRPD quite often. So the eHRPD means the tower is upgraded?

    • It would not surprise me if T-Mobile leases UScellular's used spectrum while converting sites for up to a year.
    • Here's the spectrum breakdown by band. There's some 2.5 in there as well. The remaining spectrum is definitely enough to keep running FWA on while finding a buyer, and since the towers aren't conveying with the subs and spectrum there's nothing stopping USCellular from competing with T-Mobile on FWA until Verizon or AT&T decide the spectrum is valuable enough to take off TDS's hands. If they go that route, I wouldn't be surprised if FWA gets rebranded under TDS.
    • Transaction Details and Financial Profile T-Mobile will pay approximately $4.4 billion for the assets being acquired from UScellular in the transaction in a combination of cash and up to $2.0 billion of debt to be assumed by T-Mobile through an exchange offer to be made to certain UScellular debtholders prior to closing. To the extent any debtholders do not participate in the exchange, their bonds will continue as obligations of UScellular and the cash portion of the purchase price will be correspondingly increased. Following the closing of the transaction, UScellular will retain ownership of its other spectrum as well as its towers, with T-Mobile entering into a long-term arrangement to lease space on at least 2,100 additional towers being retained. T-Mobile does not expect the transaction to impact the company’s 2024 guidance or 2024 authorized shareholder return program. T-Mobile expects this transaction will yield approximately $1.0 billion in effective total opex and capex annual run rate cost synergies upon integration, with total cost to achieve the integration currently estimated at between $2.2 billion to $2.6 billion. The company plans to reinvest a portion of synergies toward enhancing consumer choice, quality and competition in the wireless industry. The transaction, which is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions and receipt of certain regulatory approvals, is expected to close in mid-2025.
    • The way I heard it, these were for sites that T-Mobile would not be keeping, and presumably is how they would handle decommissioning the equipment from them.  This would presumably happen because they're already on the tower or on an adjacent tower.  For example, in Keysville, VA, T-Mobile is on a tower directly adjacent to the existing US Cellular-owned tower. https://maps.app.goo.gl/kefNy451QXYFSqi5A T-Mobile at left; at right is the US Cellular-owned tower with both US Cellular and Verizon gear on it. - Trip
    • My gut opinion is they are waiting for technology improvements. C-band is seeing some of those emerge now which will extend its useful range and carrying capacity.  Given it current short range, 24GHz is best for places where people are seated in sizeable numbers, although I would not rule out business pico cells. Of course, Verizon is using mmWave small cells quite well for FWA by placing them outside large apartment buildings that only allow one ISP with outrageous charges. UScellular and some Verizon have been using it to do the job of microwave links to preserve licences (4 needed per county).
