Tucson, Az LTE info?


Recommended Posts

So for years Tucson has been "getting 4G soon" and time passes with no luck, last I heard Tucson was in the Second round with PHX getting 4G early this year (or at least getting started) has anything changed? I don't understand how HUGE city's like Phoenix and Tucson get left behind while places with 1500 people get 4G, doesn't make sense, can anyone shed light on this issue or help me understand when to expect 4G?

S4GRU et al have discussed this exact topic concerning everyones city to death throughout this forum. The takeaway from all of those discussions is red tape (political issues, permits, land, power etc.), bachaul (sprints lines, microwave communications, other companies launch of fiber/cable/ethernet), and equipment (shortages of supplies, rerouting of supplies, contractors and subcontractors, etc...) and possibly money via sprint to others or others to sub others. This is an extensive and large process, so the less of each of the issues i mentioned, the quicker the system overhaul can be completed.

 

As they say, patience is a virtue. If there were no shortages of equipment and no permits needed, this would be done much faster but as it is, if anyone is behind, then all the othere effects will happen.

 

Those cities with 1500 people probably have 1% of the overall areas antenna's therefore completion can be accomplished exponentially quicker be cause of the previous conditions i mentioned above.

I would suggest readiing through the the information available here on S4GRU.COM. There are a lot of very knowledgeable and helpful folks that frequent this site. Learn about the issues involved with deploying Sprint's Network Vision. Learn how to identify the signs of activity - what the panels, RRUs and base cabinets look like. Before you know it, your friends and family will be giving you strange looks when you talk about going out tower-spotting and the anticipation of seeing the first purple spots show on Sensorly maps. In other words, learn how to enjoy the wait.

That's a great way to look at it. The lack of LTE in my area resulted in me hanging out here and reading threads like a mad man. Due to the wait I have learned so much from some of the most knowledgeable people around. I am a more informed person on several fronts due to this site. You will not find a better grouping of people anywhere on the internet that are willing to educate people about the very complex workings of mobile device connectivity that we take for granted.

Sit back and enjoy the insane amount of information available to you.

 

Sent from a phone using an application. That's pretty cool.
