LTE on I-35


Recommended Posts

I was driving to Texas today from Kansas and tried to check out some of Sprints Coverage along I-35.

 

1. Most of my connections allong the way were eHRPD

2. I connected LTE around El Dorado, KS, South Wichita and Wichita Falls Texas.

3. I did not connect LTE in North Wichita or Oklahoma City

4. Currently in San Angelo, TX and only eHRPD

 

Note: I was using and EVO LTE so I toggled airplane mode requently..

 

On the way home to Kansas, I plan on changing the network to LTE only and see what happens.

Also I plan to correlate closer with my daughters iPhone 5. It was picking up LTE in west Wichita Falls that I could not connect to even toggling airplane mode.

I will be in Wichita Falls on Friday.

where in KC? I get LTE in Overland Park, except around the Sprint Campus. :lol:

I sometimes have to toggle my EVO LTE's airplane mode to connect.

Can't wait to read your report. Some say the new updated modem on the GN2 isn't better, but in fact makes it like the S3... I haven't been able to play with it yet. Might be something to look into tho.

So far, I haven't seen any improvements in 3G services in the OKC metro, save one or two sites and I think those were band-aid improvements to backhaul. But I'm hopeful that we'll see some improvements now that 2013 is almost upon us. My upgrade eligibility is January 1st so I can't wait to have a new LTE capable device (I still have a Wimax phone now, which is great only when I'm near one of the 3 OKC protection sites).

    • More on Super Bowl preparations here: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl Verizon: That said, Verizon will have some hefty gear on hand if it needs to use it, like THOR, the Tactical Humanitarian Operations Response vehicle, as well as THOR’s Hammer and the Mobile Utility Technology Transport (MUTT) police cruiser. Very cool… AT&T: Like Verizon, AT&T is bringing all the tools at its disposal to serve fans and public safety customers during the big game. That includes a flying cell on wheels (COW) and a robotic dog.   There’s a ton of detail on AT&T’s network build here. Great read!
    • This means a significant number of people feel Dish will never pay them back. Dish should have borrowed more money sooner at lower rates.  T-Mobile has been much smarter at this during this merger period.
    • Dang.  Is there I way we can directly get in on that for the next one if Dish is gonna be paying 11.75%?
    • T-Mobile has been building out new rural sites for the last 6-8 months. It may not be as noticeable elsewhere, but we have had 40+ new sites come online in Nebraska. There have been new builds in Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri as well. If you change the site data to display hex values on Cellmapper, look for sites that begin with 05D, or 062 - 063. Those are new sites in the last 6 months.
    • New Vertical Bridge site built for Tmobile near Red River Gorge area.  Maybe T-Mobile is starting to build out new sites and colos in rural areas now...   https://imgur.com/a/Tv3Ge0w
