UW getting LTE and new antenna system for cell phone service

Postby Beaver » Fri Apr 30, 2010 10:42 am

I mean Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology, not a Limiter Term Employee standing outside holding up an antenna. It won't start until Fall 2010 but then the UW area will have stronger cell phone service.

"AT&T is expected to implement the new Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology, also known as 4G, that will provide faster downloads for smartphone users with AT&T contracts."

My US Cellular basic flip phone works fine on campus, even along the Lakeshore Path (downhill and away from where I presume the current towers are located), although there used to be lunchtime capacity issues occasionally.

Is this an improvement just for AT&T customers? Or for smartphones which have neglected being 'phones'?

Don't know. Ask DoIT.
