I was at the Indy race downtown this weekend and had very nice 4g service but i get really terrible 3g service at my Eastern Baltimore county home.

- After updating a custom rom on my phone (STOCK WITH GOODIES 2.02
SENSE 4.1) I was finally able to get a LTE connection as the updated rom contains the radio update.
The fastest result I got:
2nd highest was around 18mb down
Average was around 7mb down
I still believe there is an issue with my radio as I had to keep switching it back & forth from CDMA to LTE in which it would start on LTE and then jump back to 3G. Or the signal is just weak where I was at. I was located off 175 & Rt 1 by Jessup.
I knew there was definitely an issue with my radio before i updated because I was at Arundel Mills Mall on Sunday and got no LTE connection at all when many others are said they definitely do get a connection in that area.09-05-2012 12:19 PM

- Interesting post i found on s4gruThe strength indicator does not show LTE signal strength, ever. Even when the icon says 4G. The signal strength shown is always for 1x. So you likely had a very weak LTE signal outside and then you went inside and the signal was too weak to penetrate where you were at. I just got back from LTE Performance testing in Waco and I can tell you that the Sprint LTE penetration characteristics are far better than WiMax.
To find out the LTE signal strength, you must go Settings>About Device>Status. Go down to Mobile Network Type and confirm it is LTE. If so, read the signal strength listed above. If it is a number greater than -115dBm on the EVO LTE (or -90dBm on the GS3, GNex, Viper), then you have a pretty weak LTE signal.09-05-2012 01:03 PM
- Got LTE in Hagerstown today. Couldn't believe it when I saw it. Topped out at around 17 Mbps down and 8-9 up. I'm fairly certain Hagerstown isn't on the list to get LTE, so I was definitely surprised to see it. I'm guessing they're working on the towers around here.09-13-2012 01:15 PM
