    4G Information
  1. 800mhz should be awesome once deployed. I just got an AT&T LTE phone (runs on 700mhz)...and when I say its fast....its fast. I know that Sprints LTE is currently deployed on 1900mhz. My typical speeds "indoors" with sprint is aprox. 8megs down and about 4-5 megs up. On AT&T LTE "indoors" ...aprox. 30 megs down 18 megs up....max 45 megs down. If this is any indicator of whats to come...i can't wait for 800mhz to be deployed!!! With 800 mhz we should get much much better building penetration...hopefully the 100mhz difference wont make that much difference. One thing that I am not sure about is how much bearing the channels have on the speed (5x5 vs.10x10). Anyone know?
  2. Try using photobucket...it's much better. The app lets you upload from your phone. Sent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk 2
  3. Well Sprint has some big promises to keep. I don't think they are deploying sites 100% "by the book"...but using more so "stick-and-move tactics"... for the lack of a better phrase. I think that may help explain some of the inconsistancies between what is reportedly accepted by sprint and showing on the completed sites map....and what users are seeing in reality. I see far more sites being lit up than what is officially being reported...thats a good thing! Hope they keep up the pace.
  4. This has just been my experience... When LTE keeps coming and going in a new area...they are working on it and it's imminent. Hardest part is being patient...but it's worth it. Did you get to run any speed tests? Sent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk 2
  5. Must be nice! Sent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk 2
  6. The tower must be in your back yard! Sounds like your SNR is sky high. Sent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk 2
  7. I think it will all be a moot point once the dust settles and the network matures. Once the majority of NV sites are upgraded and users become accustomed to seeing the benefits of it...I think the majority of the bandwidth being used (speed tests, netflix, YouTube, etc.) will go down. At least that's what I'm predicting. Sent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk 2
  8. Not sure if you were aware or not...(this being your first smart phone)...but you can take screenshots on your GS3 by pressing the home button + the power button...or you could just swipe your palm across the screen from right to left. It just beats a bunch of typing or copy and paste when your trying to share speed test results.
  9. Thats the fastest I've heard...would love to see it.
  10. Bars don't mean much. Gotta look at your RSRP, RSRQ, and SNR. Sent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk 2

  12. First let me say that I wasn't trying to be proportional...so mission accomplished. My point, irregardless of semantics, was to point out that the "all you can eat buffet" example probably isnt the best analogy to use when talking about unlimited data. If you can "only pass so much data through a certain amount of spectrum" as you say...please let me know what that limit is. For some reason that doesn't make much sense...maybe its just me. BTW...technically there isn't a limit as to how much data can be passed through cables or through spectrum for that matter. Thats just not the case. However, I am fully aware that there may be limits as to how much data can be passed at one time before the quality of the network starts to degrade. Had to put that out there although it should go without saying.
  13. Wireless spectrum (frequency used to transmit) is limited but the amount of data that can be transmitted over that meduim is not...The quality of an overloaded network is another topic. Sorry...but data is not spectrum...they are two different things. Probably should have googled a bit further.
  14. It's simple actually. The shrimp supply of a restaurant is limited meaning they don't have an endless supply of shrimp in the kitchen. One important difference between data and food is that food is a physical object...data/bandwith ( in the context of this thread) is a measurement. While not likely...If I am the only customer in the restaurant I can potentially eat every pieces shrimp in the restaurant ( it might take me a while). If I'm the only customer on the network there's no way that I can use up every piece of data since data is a measurement and not a physical object. Being a measurement data can't be finite... unless of course numbers are finite which everyone knows is not the case. As far as time goes...it has nothing to do with anything. I can set my phone to sync my e-mail every 30 minutes and that still happens even when I'm sleeping and not physically using my phone. Again... In the context of this thread data is a measurement whatever you eat at a buffet is physical and therefore not unlimited. Sent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk 2
