AT&T Says No LTE Phones Until Close to Year's End
Hmmm... good call? Bad call?
I'm sure some people will come in saying that they should barrel into LTE, but I think building out what you have and working from there is the better idea.
That is complete BS. It doesnt matter if they have 1000 software upgrades, if LTE transmits over 700Mhz, and the phone does not have an LTE 700Mhz antenna, it will not be able to receive that service, period. I dont know whos been telling you that.
The doggles were put out first because, they don't rely on battery power and it gives better online performance for laptops.
It's a stupid name for USB modems.
Dongles, not "doggles."
For a phone to work on LTE, it will need both an LTE radio and an antenna that can work on the correct band. No current AT&T handset has that.
But regarding AT&T's decision, I agree. Verizon's LTE network has had some hiccups. Their LTE based phones are overpriced, humongous and battery life sucks.
Apple is no rush either as they are supposedly waiting or smaller components to create an LTE based iPhone. Whether that will be the "5" remains to be seen.
