Like I stated, previously I owned a WiFi only tablet. I used that tablet a lot at home, but on the road I either have to bring my Hotspot device or leveraging any public WiFi that I could find.
The LG GPad 7 Tablet with Sprint 4G LTE woke me up and gave me that freedom that now I can “un-tether” the WiFi world.
Understanding Sprint is still building out a complete 4G LTE network, where I live and work there seems to be adequate 4G LTE coverage for me to enjoy the usefulness of full data access on a device larger than my usual phone. I am using tablet for general internet browsing, and for the road I can use even google navigation. It is great as the map is pretty big and very easy to follow on the road. In my previous post, I mentioned that I used the tablet to record the route that we did for Radio Network Equipment drive test.
At home, I get reasonable LTE service via Sprint’s 1900MHz band, so at the remote side from the tower at my home, I get not so great but reasonable speed for normal usage:
And at my work, there is a new 2500MHz tower built nearby and I get terrific speed:
You may wonder how did I know which tower the Tablet is connected too? I use the LTE Engineering free app that you can download from Google Play:
I am carrying this LG Gpad everywhere with me now.
