Freedompop LTE connects – Sprint carrier iPhone 5 does not

Posted By on March 26, 2014

sprintfreedompopiphonelte14This morning in a discussion with a friend about the new Sprint HD Voice being rolled out, I mentioned that my LTE capable iPhone5 was not connecting to the 4G Sprint towers in the area that did service my Freedompop4G LTE data access device. I’ve yet to figure out why some areas are servicing Sprint phones with the LTE service, but other are not … YET devices backboned on Sprint seem to be able to connect?

Currently north of Cincinnati in Ohio the Sprint LTE has not been announced, but the Freedompop device has been connecting for at least a half year. In other areas, both devices are connection fine and speeds have been great.

What gives?
