Sensorly 4G+

I'm heading to France this week and was checking which provider had the best service considering I might be picking up a local SIM card and stumbled across "4G+" on sensorly. When I clicked the caption, it said that it was carrier aggregation. How come there isn't 4G+ for sprint - there should be a ton considering the availability of 2.5 LTE now...I've attached screenshots of the 4G+.

I was there for 22 days and spent about 30 bucks on roaming. 3G worked well for maps streaming audio and FaceTime.

It has been in the release for a month or so.  I have tried testing it on a CA device, but no luck so far.  I think they are expanding it on a carrier by carrier basis.

No word on when it will roll to the US/Sprint right

Meh.  I question whether Sensorly accurately can detect CA on most handsets.  We have so many instances of broken engineering screens or non existent CA readouts.  And we have no third party apps that can display CA.  I doubt that Sensorly has figured it out.  If so, then mikejeep and the other app programmers need to get cracking.

Are you aware of Sprint Open World (https://www.sprint.com/landings/openworld/index.html) and Sprint International Value Roaming (http://www.sprint.com/landings/international-value-roaming/)?

 

Sprint Open World gives you free unlimited texts, calling for 20¢/min, and 3G data for $30/GB

 

Sprint International Value Roaming gives you free unlimited texts, calling for 20¢/min, and free unlimited 2G data

 

Both are going to be cheaper than a foreign SIM if you're only going to be in France for a week. Only downside is that you don't get a local French number.

I think they'd also have to tell the bandwidth of each aggregated band. If in some rural county AT&T is doing CA with just 5MHz of 700MHz and 5MHz of 1900MHz, would that be worth calling 4G+?

I've always been amazed how the new competitor in France (Iliad's Free Mobile) is shaking up their wireless market. For 20 euros a month they give unlimited everything (50Gb LTE), calling to 100+ countries, and roaming in the EU/US. To the OP, remember to have the coverage seen on Sensorly, you have to make sure your phone supports all of that carrier's bands.
