Westchester NY WiMAX outage.

I have noticed recently that 4G WiMAX in Westchester NY has been having lengthy outages. The phone will connect to a WiMAX tower, but then no data services are present. When I switch back to 3G it works fine. There are also times when I am connected and then the phone will just drop 4G for no reason and then will not reconnect. I personally cannot wait for NV and LTE to be done with Clearwire. Hopefully Sprint has learned to always take care of your own network first. Is there a way to report an outage to Clearwire or Sprint without having to call and them acting like it is your phone?

I don't know of any other way to report the issue. However, I did have a friend in Vegas who had the same problem and it was his device. Do you know anyone else with a WiMax device that you can compare with to see if they are having the same problem? If they are, definitely call.

The whole WiMax Network went down 2 nights ago in Visalia, CA and neither my Clear iSpot or my phone would connect to 4G. I feel your pain Justin. Try another WiMax device like Robert suggested, and then call and gripe if both don't work.

Yeah both my wife's and mine went down. It is weird. It comes and it goes. I may call and complain soon because it is a pain especially when you are not even moving or touching the phone and the radio stops.

    • I see it as more of an economic calculation.  Basically go after the areas where they have the best odds of retaining or attracting customers versus their MVNO arrangements. The quicker they can switch back and forth between 5g and MVNOs the finer grained this decision zone can be.  Field results will beat theory.  In Sprint days this was up to 15 minutes in theory. In practice AT&T could be quite sticky.  I remember driving by 3 Sprint sites while still stuck on AT&T roaming. Dish will need to do better to thrive. Both their MVNO arrangements reportedly now cost them about $1.50 per GB. With volume that may fall to $1.
    • Man I wish I could get on their beta right now.  Looks like I'll have to wait until Dec or so.  The report is not surprising really.  Largely only have employees roaming around running tests and what not.  I am sure lots of testing is needed to iron out bugs, fix things.  Though a lot of it might be denser network.  Only so much you can do and money is spread out very thin when you have such a large target to hit. 
    • Found some AT&T c band live in Cincinnati today. Not too bad considering I was driving past on the interstate at speed.  
    • Hey Mike, a couple other things you might be able to post for S22Ultra owners, In particular, these deal with the *#0011# menu. The following are true for even the June update:   1. Does not show the second n41 carrier (when it is connected) on LTE+NSA. It shows "NR_NumCC:2" but no additional Carrier. It simply states "CA-Not Config 0 0"This works fine on the S21.  2. There is a line that states "Code Review Required" 3. There is a line that states "Unknown 0"    
    • The see Dish as the Beta network for a while. Basically once they have secured their licenses and have inexpensive phones that utilize all their bands I hope to see them reduce the edge space of their network or improve the transfer performance so customers have more of an invisible handoff experience. This will likely be late 2023.
