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.
must be nice! I live 400 yrds from an LTE tower and my office is 1.3 miles from a tower. Both of which are said to be active with no fail reports. Myself along with others still cannot gonnect LTE and even our 3G service has drastically dropped. Houston TX... Tower located at 11200 Fondren
