AT&T Switched on the 4G LTE on in Cincinnati

Posted In Cell phones, Tech News - By joshua.combs On Friday, September 14th, 2012 With 4 Comments

Looks like AT&T is making good with their promise to have 4g live in more markets by the end of the year. It was announced a couple of weeks ago that Cincinnati was on the list to have 4g by the end of the year, and it appears they have switched it on tonight! Hopefully it is here to stay and not just a testing exercise. I am receiving the same speeds I was from Verizon when I had the Galaxy Nexus. I will show you some comparison shots from Verizon and AT&T.

I am happy that AT&T finally got rid of the HSPA+ because it was very slow and not technically using all of my resources that my phone had at it’s disposal. Then again maybe the update to LTE is so all of the new shiny iPhone5  iPhones can utilize the speed and make Apple look good? But what ever the reason I am happy for it!

Any other smartphone user’s in Cincinnati happy they have made the update?

    I noticed it right away, and was pumped, especially considering I was usually only getting one bar at home.  Awesome!

    I noticed it on my HTC One X, and was fearful as well that it was just a test run.  Hopefully we will here confirmation that it’s on for good.  As much as I dislike the iPhone, I think we can thank the iPhone for this earlier than expected rollout.

    Is LTE still on (Sun 9/16)? It would be a pleasant surprise indeed to have LTE from day 1 when my iPhone 5 arrives next week.
