Hey good news for the Waterman/hinckley area....4g is working now. I'm getting 4.5 to 5 mb down load speed , before was getting 1.5 to 2.5 (on a really good day). Working from a home office in a rural area has been a challenge with finding an affordable data plan with a high enough ceiling and decent speed. After years of trying different plans, I think things have finally come together.

1) millenicom ...unlimited (soft 50gb cap) ...69.99 a month. Uses sprint network. I think they went up $10 a month, but still a good deal.

2) Now have 4g lte in area (for the last 2 days).

So about 4 weeks after the sprint coverage showed 4g lte in my area it finally showed up.

John: From the Lee Rd. tower? Depending on where you are at, there are up to four or five fixed wireless providers that could service you.

Can any of the providers match or exceed the 50gb for $70 a month? If so I would be interested (there is no contract with Millenicom it's month to month)

By the way, the 4g disappeared on Monday, maybe they are working on it.

    • 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.
