I was less than a block away from the tower - they try to pretend the flag pole isn't a cellphone tower. What was weird is the LTE access kind of faded in and out. I was waiting for a pizza when I looked down and noticed my phone said "4G" instead of "3G". Ran a speed test, as soon as it finished it switched back over to 3G

says they are turning it up (or rather they are no longer blocking connections).

Seems they are being conservative with the speeds too.. not a bad idea 5M/5M is still quite speedy for mobile.

Are they running IPv6 on their LTE network like VZW and AT&T?

Can you get to »ip6.me and does it show a v6 address?

This is just about 2 miles from my front door. My phone will say "4G" all the way to the corner to my street, then it rolls over to 3G and then back to wi-fi at my house.

And no, it's only IPv4, or at least that is what my device had.

Pretty bad they're using allocated space too. That's not cool, not cool Sprint.

Its a DOD allocation. this has been done with other DOD allocations, its done with the OK of the DOD since they are not being advertised via BGP to the "Internet"

For the moment yes, they're not publicly annoucning 30.0.0.0/8 but they could give that back to the IANA pool at any point or even repurpose it within the govt.

IMO, Sprint should be using 1918 space, which means smallers CGN pools but ARIN still has v4 and they should get them while they can.

It's going to be a hell of a lot harder to renum after exhaustion.

No LTE yet in Dallas 75254
I've got a Galaxy Nexus and have been anxiously awaiting the 4G indicator since I first started seeing reports on Saturday of early rollout...

And here, just outside San Jose, CA, LTE showed up on my Tri-Fi hotspot when I took the unit outside on my patio. The signal was really week, about -120dBm, but enough to visit a couple of web pages. Oddly, it seemed to prefer that barely usable signal over a much strong WiMax signal.

Looks like they are testing the towers here, so perhaps a matter of months for broader availability.

10 to 12 mb down and 5+ up here in Atlanta (Suwanee) with pings inthe 50's Figured out pretty quickly that WiFi interferes with reception.

No extra lights, no alert, no nothing when you go from 3G to 4G.

I just happened to be looking at my phone, that's how I noticed it at first.

Nothing but a "3G" indicator here.

They should probably consider using 100.64/10 since it was set aside for that express purpose.

Its not OK. It is s major fail.
And no IPv6 is just as bad.

A few cable companies have done this same thing on thier internal networks with other DOD net blocks with DOD approval, it doesn't look like the DOD is gonna release the block so at least its getting some use some how, also IT DOESN'T MATTER ITS AN INTERNAL NETWORK, they can use what ever they want.

And you problem with IPv6?

T-Mobile and Verizon both have IPv6, »sites.google.com/site/tmoipv6/lg-mytouch

It matters:
1. In principle. Don't use space that isn't yours.
2. Using it privately is not good, using it publicly (where users see: t) is patently bad.

My problem with IPv6 is that they don't offer it. I have it at home via Comcast and on the road via VZW/LTE - and everyone should. It is flipping 2012!!

It matters because, if someone else gets the allocation, the people on this so-called "private network" will not be able to reach the actual allocation elsewhere on the Internet.

I think of why I stop at a stoplight in the middle of the night alone, no one else comes, there's no police for miles, and yet I still don't run the red light.

Maybe Sprint needs to hold a conf-call with T-Mobile on how to do IPv6

Seems like they are starting to fill in the gaps, service is gaining speed, for the most part.

This speed test was taken sitting at a red light at the intersection of Shawnee Mission Parkway and Nieman in Mission, KS.
