Which one of all sprint hotspot devices have the most lte bands + the most battery life? TIA

 

While the Karma probably isn't what you're looking for, I'd say that. But take a look at the Boost Mobile hotspot as well, the 10GB plan is cheaper than Sprint. But it looks like you may have that already.

 

If you have to go directly through Sprint, your only option is the R850 hotspot they have. The Pocket-Wifi they carry is out of stock and I like that the R850 has a removable battery.

Except the R850 is LTE only, and the Pocket Wifi, which might still be easily purchased in a store, has 3G. The Alcatel ONETOUCH Ride-FI is a nice new addition, has 3G connectivity, and I'm sure there is an adapter out there to be able to plug it in to a wall outlet.

I am intrigued by the Ride-Fi too.. I have seen dual wall/car chargers that had 12v "cigarette lighter" power ports in them, but not recently. I've got a big Black and Decker 12v brick I bought for my portable electric cooler I could use.. Haha what a kludge that would look like! :)

Sprint website list the Pocket wifi as having lte advance(plus?) and the netgear fuse doesn't. Will I get better speeds in houston tx using a pocket wifi instead of a netgear fuse?

 

LTE Plus can mean single carrier Band 41, but the Pocket WiFi does not have carrier aggregation.

I have a 12v brick for my portable electric cooler too. I just don't know where it is though. On another note, the Netgear Zing was brought back from the dead, and it was a good hotspot, so that is another option.

    • Curious as to how SCP works with it regarding NSA, particularly in markets with n41 BW=100 and second channel.

    • T-Mobile eNB 879491/879493/879494 on the keep site map is located at 40.77536940167816, -73.92011957697034. Sprint eNB 5762 is now T-Mobile eNB 306271. Located at 40.582064139078206, -74.16175767702059 Weirdly both of the new Sprint conversions that have been found in Staten Island (eNB 306271 and eNB 326459) were sites I visited earlier this summer but neither of them were broadcasting the keep PLMN at the time. In fact, Sprint eNB 5762 was completely offline when I visited. I suspected both sites were keep sites based on their location relative to neighboring T-Mobile sites so I was surprised when I didn't spot 312-250 coming from them. Glad to see T-Mobile still kept them. Also T-Mobile isn't done with non-conversion new builds in the city. T-Mobile eNB 894075 is a brand new site added this summer on Rockefeller University's campus in Manhattan. It gives me hope for neighborhoods like Red Hook and Williamsburg that desperately need sites along the waterfront.
    • Nearly every site I encountered in the Bronx was running N41 SA. Consistent pings in the low teens and speeds were actually great. Sprint eNB 9294 got converted but isn't live yet. Location: 40.83091697219704, -73.8178106151994   Sprint eNB unknown, now T-Mobile eNB 310677 Location:40.880070855974395, -73.83644046611454   Sprint eNB Unknown, now T-Mobile eNB 894775. Bonus speed test with 2CA and N41 SA. Location: 40.8989406640668, -73.84564472722599   Sprint eNB Unknown, now T-Mobile eNB 894854. 40.86220687471859, -73.86242513896488
