Default St. Louis 4G

Yesterday afternoon, I heard a radio advertisement for Sprint 4G. This was a St. Louis station (106.5 to be exact). The ad promeoted the faster 4g service, sharing the wifi with up to 8 people and stated that 4g was coming to St. Louis soon.

I've heard it rummored that 4G was available now in St. Louis and under testing.

I need to make a quick trip north to see if I get any 4G signal soon!

I get spotty 4G at my home in South St. Louis, but 4g is pretty strong at work at Saint Louis University.

I'm a grad student at SLU, I spend quite a bit of time there. I haven't tried 4G there yet, but at my home in the Southwest Garden, I get spotty 4G as well. Sometimes it's better than others. I'm sure it'll get better as more towers go up.

I live in St Louis (but am currently in Florida on vacation) and have gotten spotty 4g coverage...it all depends where you are at since they are still rolling out towers. Also, when it says you are on 4g it has bars that are like an arc (similar to wifi) so I don't think its possible to get 4 or 5 bars of 4g since I think the 'full' is just 3 arcs. The normal bars are your regular cell phone reception.

Hey not to steal your thread but since we have all these people in STL in this post, can I ask a question?

Which network is best here? I've been with ATT but the dropped calls is terrible for me here. Testing out the EVO right now and for the past two weeks with Sprint I haven't had dropped calls. What about Verizon and T-Mobile?

Verizon = Sprint > Tmobile > AT&T

I just switched from from Verizon but have used TMO before as well. No dropped calls on either carrier. My friend's iPhones on AT&T suffer from poor 3g coverage and dropped calls. You can't go wrong with Verizon imo. I also live in the SoCo area (right across from Point Elementary school) and don't have 4G yet but Sprint's 3G is faster than Verizon's 3G when I had the BB Storm.

I'm afraid 4G will still be spotty after STL wide unfortunately.

There's only one spot in STL that I travel consistently, that I can pretty much guarantee either a dropped call, or very spotty service, 55 south right past arsenal, right by the broadway entrance to the highway, short of that I get pretty damn good service around the city...

I think the city and MOST of the county will probably be ok, but once you get out in areas like fenton or well past eureka, and probably the east side... will be spotty at first...

Ran this from work, near I-44 and Shrewsbury:



I seem to get better download speeds with speedtest.net web page (using Dolphin HD browser) than I get with the speedtest app, although higher latencies.

I did couple 4G tests yesterday ... West on I-44 from Elm to 270 didn't pick up any 4G, but got a decent signal on I-44 near Bowles:




Then on I-44 near 141, signal getting weak:




After that (West past 141) lost the 4G signal completely, as was expected.

Perhaps - just reporting what I saw on the phone. While at slu and on 4g I had no problems with Iheartradio or slacker. At my house by Tower Grove Park they both spend more time buffering.

Both iheartradio and slacker should run fine on just 3g btw.

I live in the st. louis area and just noticed today that I'm now getting a weak 4G signal in Ballwin, MO (fluctuates between 1 and 2 bars).

They probably do - but not at my house where reception may be iffy anyway. They did do great on 4g which was my real point.

Hate to tell you but every carrier dies out right there, just south of the brewery. My EVO, my TMobile Iphone, my friends ATT Iphone, and another friends incredible. Must be too much alcohol in the air.

Today on my way in to work, I had 4g signal all of the way up 30 from Old Sugar Creek to 270. Most of the time it was full bars too. I could see towers and for some reason I didn't notice them yesterday. The overlap seemed good because it would get down to 1 bar and then climb again, never lost signal.

Maybe I will have 4G in High Ridge.

I just got an email from a local computer repair and sales shop in west county. They were asking me to pre-order order clear 4g. And the release date was July 28th. I assume it will be official by then.

I picked up a 4g signal in Chesterfield the other day, but when I went to use the internet it switched over to 3g. Was hoping to have my first 4g test.....

On 70, I've gotten 4G all the way out to just between Foristell and Wentzeville - AWESOME!

Also, very strong signals along I-70 throughout St. Charles county, and up 270 towards Flo-town, Hazelwood, etc....

OK people. I work for Clear and I can answer most of the questions that you have. If you want to know if it is available for a certain addres, I can answer that. If you want to know if your town will have coverage anytime soon..I can answer that! Just ask! I got tired of looking at the forum and seeing so much speculation. There are currently about 130 towers working. No you will not have coverage in Festus at launch time...probably never. I have maps...no they can't be released...don't ask! I have worked in 4g markets for about a year. I am from the Loo so I know it very well!

It is close by you to the north and south..maybe 1 or 2 exits south so it is probably just a temp thing. I wouldn't think that it should be too far past launch when u get it.

I am looking at my phone right now and I have 1 bar on 4g. In Ellisville I was running a full 4g signal all day yesterday.

I live on top of a hill west of STL. I'd be happy to get ANY service.
I drive by the stupid antenna and it has full bars but I guess they are pointed away from me and down. Don't supposed there's anyone to talk to about getting a signal period.

Also Sprint drops calls all the time going out 44 between 141 and eureka. You'd think being a major interstate they'd at least have some kind of service here.
