HOUSTON TEXAS, WE HAVE A PROBLEM!
From Sugar Land to downtown and now back to my office in SW Houston and have yet to see 4G on my EVO 4G LTE (7/16/12). I saw a 4G signal for about less than a minute near the Galleria late yesterday but then it was gone... For almost 2 weeks now ive been struggling with the 3G speed anticipating the July 15 date which has now come and gone. I should have waited to buy this phone and stuck with my original EVO 4G WiMax that worked great. Sprint continues to have the slowest speed of the top 3 carriers, Verizon, ATT, Sprint... Unfortunately, Sprints 3G is half the speed of other carriers' 3G and its making it difficult to stay with sprint. I understand they have no data cap but im debating on switching even though ive been a Sprint user of over 13 years. This slow speed is killing me! I give it 2 more days before i cancel Sprint service and return this phone before i hit the 14th day trial
I contacted Sprint about my LTE issue and was told there were no known issues in my area and sent a trouble ticket 19179492-120716. He had me reset my phone, cycle it and even switch cdma only/LTE but still have no LTE. On top of that, the 3G speed is so bad now. I am exactly 1.2 miles from the LTE tower here at work and 400 yards from the tower at home. My 3G test pings at 1275ms, DL 67KBps, UL 33Kbps... Do you know of any hardware incompatibilities on the EVO LTE? Any suggestions?
I feel sorry for you. You should cancell your contract as soon is possible. I had Sprint for about a year and half and i started noticing low internet speed i mean (low low), i had to walk out of my bussines to be able to send a picture ( that is unacceptable) so i decided to cancel my contract. Now i have Metro PCS $50 a month and WOW it is not ATT or Verizon but so far i am happy having up to 5 mb of LTE speed, i never had that on Sprint for $80. Now just waiting im thinking to switch to Tmob or Att.
do you have a link that shows which towers are active and which arent yet? if youre going by the sprint site map then that is slightly off..(this might not be your case) but most people have to remember that they only kicked on roughly 40% in each market...and some markets are large enough to contain a couple cities...so break that down and that LTE is going to be REALLY wide spread/hit and miss.
negative, this as well as the one near my house are showing as active online LTE sites. The manager at the Sprint store is also working on figuring out whats going on. The tower near her loacation should be up too and she has no LTE and her 3G service is slim to none
Sprint is proud to have been named to The Civic 50, an annual survey of America?s most community-minded companies.
