Sprint's 4G LTE Network

Note: The Sprint 4G LTE network is currently available in limited markets, but continues to expand across US cities.

Sprint 4G LTE services dramatically increase download speeds for photos, videos and large files. Average download speeds for Sprint 4G devices range 3-6 Mbps compared to 600Kbps - 1.4 Mbps for 3G devices. Peak speeds for 4G can reach 10 Mbps so you can quickly stream HD movies, enjoy live video conferences, and download songs in just seconds.

Additionally, businesses can benefit from the fast connectivity speeds of 4G LTE. Some examples include:

  • Real estate agents can conduct virtual property tours.
  • Construction teams using 4G LTE in the field can save valuable time by sharing schematics with engineers online.
  • Insurance companies can speed their claims management through real-time communication with on-site adjusters.
  • Health care professionals can improve their ability to remotely monitor patients.
  • Emergency first responders can rapidly assess and coordinate disaster action with real-time on-site video and audio.
  • Photojournalists can instantly transfer high-resolution images to the newsroom.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Hotspot July 16, 2012
By Jore
Its an overall great hotspot device. It connects to the best connection between 3G, wimax, and LTE. Its a little bulky but only because of the high capacity battery that takes a long time to charge. When it is fully charged it gives you a good 8-10 hours of constant usage which is not bad at all compared to other hotspot devices. Again LTE is not yet available for most areas and who knows when it will be as they are slowly rolling out LTE so it may be another year or so before you even get LTE service in your area. Its a great device and gives you good speeds if all your doing is surfing the web and checking emails while you travel. Most people are not going to be streaming videos because that will eat up your data plan in a snap.

If your looking for LTE speed now, then you'll need to go to another carrier. But if your willing to accept 3G and wimax for now which is still fast speeds for most people, then this device is excellent.

Sprint currently gives you more data for your money so thats always a plus compared to other carriers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!! June 19, 2012
By nisbetz
Great reception, speed and relablitiy! My Trifi switchs between netorks without touching a button and has the best reception I have ever seen from mobile hotspot. Only complaint is the amount of time it takes to charge the 3200mah battery.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not good in weak-signal areas January 14, 2013
Mobile-hotspot makers in general need to test their devices more in areas with poor reception, and this is no exception. While it doesn't have a severe overheating (and resulting battery-bloating) problem like the Overdrive - also from Sierra Wireless - it is in several other regards significantly inferior to that device.

* The antenna isn't as good.

* When first booting up, if it tries and fails to get a cell connection, it often decides to reboot the wifi side

* It has an internal web server for the configuration pages. If it doesn't have a cell connection, the advanced-configuration pages won't load. And if it has a weak unstable connection, it reboots the webserver frequently. This makes changing the configuration difficult and installing a firmware update (once you manage to download it through a different internet connection) impossible.

It may be good if you have a reliable strong wifi signal. But if you actually use it as a MOBILE hotspot, can you rely on that?
