  • This is ridiculous. Flyover states get LTE before eastern suffolk county NY. I am seriously considering leaving AT&T because of this.
  • Question....i use galaxy note with Straight talk tmobile sim.... Sometimes my phone reads 4G LTE.... Is that real LTE?

  • It depends do you have tmo LTE in your area? If you do then yes if you doing then probably not. Posted via Android Central App
  • Thanks bro.....will check the map Posted via Android Central App
  • Actually, as currently advertised, you only get LTE with the AT&T ST sim. T-Mobile doesn't officially offer LTE through ST yet (they will but not yet). And users might already be seeing it in testing now.
  • You could test the connection with the speedtest app...If it is over about 10Mbps (correct me if I'm wrong fellow readers) then you probably got yourself some sweet LTE goodness
  • HSPA was that fast for me when I got my nexus 4 Posted via Android Central App
  • I used speedtest....
    It showed download as 16.49

  • Still nothing is the other end of Wisconsin the west of Wisconsin. When is there finally LTE here? Posted via Android Central App
  • I'm in southern Wisconsin in a town of almost 100,00 and still no LTE. A small town east of me of a couple thousand has it though. I'm confused. Posted via Android Central App
  • well at least all of you hillbillies will be happy.
  • I've noticed here just south of St Louis Mo, our phones are showing LTE now. Previously only Verizon showed LTE. Posted via Android Central App
  • Frederick, MD!!!! Grrr ahhhh whennnn? Posted via Android Central App
  • I rescently moved from a big city and the lte was awesome, now I live in a small town and the network can't even keep up with the demand. Using the internet is pointless during the day. They should have worked on improving the network here versus rolling out LTE that is pointless.
  • Decatur and Bloomington, IL yet no Springfield, IL?! You would think the capital of the state would have LTE by now.
  • My thoughts exactly. Bloomington-Normal I can understand, but Pontiac? It must be because of the prison there, but seriously, wth.
  • Even though we have had LTE in Harrisburg for quite some time now, I did notice an improvement in speed and signal this morning :)
  • I got a good chuckle about Lewiston getting LTE. While there are certainly a lot of people there, it's definitely one of the sketchiest places in Maine.
  • Who even lives in Maine? Went on a JROTC trip to Bangor once like 12 years and almost the whole state is deserted. Posted via Android Central App
  • Seems AT&T is trying hard to expand and sprint seems to have slowed down. Sprint rarely announces new markets anymore. I get good coverage in my area but what happens when I leave my area? Posted via Android Central App
  • If u leave ur area u still get pretty fast 3G 4G coverage. LTE is not as great as I is hyped. 3G 4G still is able to stream stuff and everything decent fast enough. Never have issue streaming anything over 3G 4G without LTE. Granted it is nice to have but not a huge deal if u don't. Well if u only get edge or GPRS then yes I can understand the frustration.

  • Just noticed LTE on my phone yesterday but don't see any announcement of it being available in the Queensbury/Glens Falls, NY area (just south of Adirondack Park if you're looking for it on a map) speed test was faster than what i get with my wifi in my house. Posted via Android Central App
