New LTE Market Launches Monday, March 4th - IN/LA/NC/PA/PR/TX/WI

Recommended Posts

And who knows when Philadelphia Market is going to be up..... between massive permit screwups, fiber backhaul cluster^%!#s, and feuding contractors, we might NEVER see LTE.


I guess you weren't looking at the Philly thread today... LTE is up all over the place as of this afternoon. Not widespread by any means, but it is live at many locations across the metro. Which is very very good news for the Philly market. It should spread quickly from this point one.

Hey not sure if this is the right place to post but I am currently in fort Myers fl and have been getting lte this week at my condo. I am off south tamiami ail. My peak down is 21+ and 10 or so up. I do have screen shots but do not know how to upload. The lte is in and out. I think the tower is about a half mile away. Oddly enough my signal is stronger in my 3rd floor room instead of outside. Possibly because I'm too close. I figured out photo

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
