Re: Millenicom Service Area - 4G/LTE

Use the coverage maps Verizon and Sprint have. That is what Millenicom uses, they don't have their own maps.

I have...both of them show that I am in a serviceable area. Millenicom says that I am not. Any idea why this is?

Edit: To be more specific this is what I see when I check coverage:

Basic Plan: HSPA+ No
Advanced 20 GB Plan: Yes
Hotspot Plan: 3G Yes, 4G No
Unlimited Plan: 3G Yes, 4G No
BYOD Plan: Yes

misinformed my guess. Use the Verizon and Sprint maps. Sprint 4G/LTE is not likely unless you live in one of the few cities it has rolled out to.

Just double checked...I'm right in the middle of LTE coverage for both.

Then you have a choice to make.

The only BYOD device you can use on the Sprint Unlimited plan for LTE is a Sierra Wireless Tri-Mode Hotspot ... pricey. There are no Sprint 4G/LTE aircards on the market yet.

Then you have the option with the Millenicom Hotspot plan on Verizon, 4G/LTE with a 20GB cap.

I just spoke with Millenicom and they said that although Verizon and Sprint are available to me, it looks like they haven't allowed Millenicom access to their towers in my area? I didn't realized it worked that way.

I believe you have received bad info. Who did you talk to?
