I am having a terrible time trying to get my lte to work with my current extender. I had to turn off lte voice to get it to work and only go with lte data. This is NOT an optimal solution, I don't want to have to reset my voice to lte everytime I leave the house! Please advise...is there a network extender I can get for lte? I get little to no signal for Verizon LTE and 3g at my house.
Two weeks ago I called in to inquire about it and was told "soon", I talked to a rep again Tuesday and they said hype and interest had intensified but they still did not have a release date, he also told me to expect it "soon". So since soon is relative term it could be in a minute or in a year
My guess is in April.
Yes, they are NOT cheap. That's what happens when gear is designed to operate on licensed frequencies. The unit above will simply pick up the signal that is available at your home, and repeat it. It should support one of Verizon's LTE bands (700Mhz C Block/Band 13, XLTE/AWS not supported) in addition to the spectrum Verizon uses for CDMA/EVDO. Much better than the Network Extenders sold, although not as easy to set up.
I was suggesting an outdoor mounting solution for this. If you are able to get signal outside, using a directional setup can help to score an LTE signal and a 3G signal amongst others.
It would appear there may now be an LTE extender. I think I have a neighbor with one, so I have no details other than I cannot prevent my phone from connecting to it.
I have a 3g extender. It worked fine for years, but for several months my phone connects to what appears to be a neighbor's LTE extender: my phone displays both the house (connected to extender), and the 4g indicators, my signal strength is one or two bars. This while I'm ten feet from my own 3g extender. If I move to my basement, completely out of range of the 4g extender, my phone then connects to my 3g extender. It would appear Verizon simply has to adjust my handset to let go a 1 bar LTE when there is a stronger 3g connection available. I opened a service ticket in November 2015; sent a dozen screen shots and photos to the tech documenting the problem; but since when I try to follow up by responding to the tech's SMS, my queries are ignored. I've not yet chosen to waste an other hour on the phone jumping through hoops (unplug, reset, wait, repeat) to reopen the incident. If I can identify the neighbor with the LTE extender, I'll ask them about it. Meanwhile, if someone here has news of such a device, I'd like to hear about it.
Correct. For those very far out, directional antennas (Yagis) can be used on a higher point to get a signal. Even if very faint, some of these units are high power, high gain, and should have a much better time hearing a tower versus a phone's tiny antennas/radios.
