Hello all, I have a question about my sprint airave. The closest tower to my house is approximately 4 miles away if I'm correct. So what I'm wondering is when this tower is eventually upgraded to 4G, will my phone be able to connect to it? Or will my airave being a stronger signal override the 4G signal?
Side question: are 4G signals stronger or weaker than 3G signals necessarily? Thanks for any insight you guys can supply
So as we all know Sprint offers the Airave devices to help in-home coverage issues. It requires a high-speed Internet connection and creates a miniature cell site inside your home (femtocell).
Sprint has offered these for free or deeply discounted for quite a while to customers with little to no coverage in their home. The requirements for determining eligibility have changed according to what I've heard. There hasn't been an official communication to retail employees as we don't deal with Airaves directly, so do take it with a grain of salt, and remember it can change again at any time.
This information comes from a conversation with a member on the Airave team that determines customer eligibility to assist our store in providing accurate information to our customers that we refer to their team for coverage issues.
To be eligible for a FREE Airave, the account must have 4+ active lines.
Otherwise, the account is eligible for purchasing the Airave at full retail price ($280), or with a 2-year contract commitment for a discounted price ($130).
My assumption is that since Network Vision is ramping up to full speed and should be completed within the next year or so, the increase in coverage availability from the 800MHz deployment and enhanced capability of the new equipment in general is anticipated to remove the need for Airave devices for most customers.
Hello, just letting you guys know that I did my reset for my airave today and it is using a different set of channels for zip 15235 in Pittsburgh, PA. Before, it used 75 and 225, and after the reset it now uses 100 and 150. This may be a response to the users who have had issues with the NV upgrade locally affecting the airave. Reset yours today and find out!
I hear you! Right now I have two lines on my plan, my father and I...I will be adding my wife to my plan either with Sprint/T-Mobile or one of the other two carriers. So I will have 3 active lines of service, but I will have no choice but to actually have a 4 Line account since there are no such Family Plans with only 3 Lines. Looking at all the plans with all of the carriers, I will actually pay less for Family Plan with 4 Lines then a plan with only 3 lines. The extra 4th line is a complete waste, but what can you do Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
B2/B4 that appears as Clear LTE is T-Mobile roaming.
All Clear sites in Washington are either Nokia MM or triband. Sprint was mandated to replace all Huawei equipment some years back. Any sites that were converted were decommissioned.
