LTE Detroit

Anyone have any idea when LTE will come to Detroit? In December, AT&T store said Q1 and obviously that didn't happen.

Re: LTE Detroit

I wonder if they are testing an LTE panel by you?   How long did you have LTE?

Re: LTE Detroit

If you guys want to map out the network, you can use an app called Sensorly. It maps out 3g, LTE to their website so you can see it online within 24 hours.

Re: LTE Detroit

They must be. Two miles from my house in either direction I lost it. I had it for about 36 hrs this last time.

Re: LTE Detroit

That's great, can you travel any further this time and still keep LTE?

Re: LTE Detroit

This is what AT&T does...they turn on LTE in patches. They just started the testing in Milwaukee at Miller Park and the airport. I tried it out today and even with a weak signal I still pulled 15 down and 11 up. We gotta just be patient it's coming!

Re: LTE Detroit

Do hurry. I have your HTC Titan II and it only performs properly under LTE.  Under 4G, it won't maintain cellular data connection for more than a few minutes. I'm in Tampa, now (an LTE area) and it runs flawlessly. In Detroit, I have to reboot the phone constantly.

I live in northern Macomb County and nothing here yet either. One thing I have noticed is the fact I used to average 4-9Mb/s and for the last few weeks I am getting under 3 all the time now even after reboots. With my old HTC Inspire I could lock the phone in either EDGE or WCDMA. Since I have upgraded to the HTC Vivid, I can no longer lock the phone into a specific band such as LTE only. Wake up AT&T......Verizon is kicking

Re: LTE Detroit

@eatonjb: Your phone says H? What kind of phone do you have? If you have an HTC Inspire or an earlier 4G phone than yours might not be LTE capable.

I think he knows what is phone has. LTE better launch in Detroit when the new iPhone comes out. Fingers crossed that when Samsung sues apple for the iPhone supporting LTE they lose. Would suck to have LTE turned on after I buy the phone.

How do you know that? My brother in law had the HTC Inspire "4G" phone and thought it was LTE capable because it was advertised as 4G . AT&T has several models of "4G" phones that only support up to HSPA+. Just saying some people who have those phones might not know the difference. I bet the iphone5 will support LTE but will be released for AT&T,Verizon,and Sprint and from what I have been reading on several forums there will be a lot of people jumping ship and switching to Verizon which I think would be great. Great in the sense that maybe AT&T will bring back unlimited data to draw customers back. I am hoping for LTE by this fall as well and really hoping for network upgrades in northern Mi. EDGE SUCKS!

Re: LTE Detroit

Network upgrades in northern Michigan would be very nice. I'm in Traverse City now, but occasionally go to Prudenville/Roscommon County on weekends. There is absolutely little to no signal at all in that area (mostly due to dense forest) and I feel like I'm wasting my service when I'm not able to use my phone as I'd like to.

On the bright side, I guess it is conserving battery life... Smiley Wink

Re: LTE Detroit

mine says H and H+ because I have a SIII with a CM Rom on it.  I was in Chicago this weekend, and 4G all day (love it, worked even with a huge crowd at the festivle)  can't wait for 4G in more places!

Great areas.  The nothern service areas was actually bought by ATT a few years ago.  I forget who the carrier was but their coverage was pretty good compared to other carriers at the time.  Roscommon, if I recall correctly was not too dense relative to people.  I do recall having my signal come and go depending upon where I was on  the Forest Dunes course.  Very spotty....
