    Default Tricom 4G/LTE anyone?

    I'd like to get a data plan for my iPhone but am soured by my experiences with Claro. I see that Tricom has 4G LTE and according to their coverage map, my location (Los Corales / El Cortecito) is covered.

    Anyone have experience with Tricom's mobile phone and data network? Specifically their 4G/LTE offering?

    As I type this. Yes my Claro phone says 4G. Speed? it says 3.5mb down/1.4mb up and I am standing next to the cell tower. I would like to know the actual speed on so called 4G.

    I know this doesn't help you or answer your question, but I used Orange Dominicana prepaid. I was getting a consistent 3.5 Mbps down/1.2 Mbps up in Ensanche Piantini. This is for 3G service. Your iPhone would need to have a 900 MHz HSPA radio.

    Sorry...
    I am asking does Tricom has true 4G/LTE or is it 3G/HSPA+ masking 4G/LTE?

    Tricom uses LTE Release 8 1900 MHz band using Huawei equipment. Yes, it's true LTE.

    100/50?!?!??!?!?!?
    I would be ecstatic if I can get consistent 1Mb not spotty 3MB. If in car I have trouble receiving and download email pdf attachments In Santiago. If they can fix that I will be more then happy to upgrade mine to 3GB per month.

    I have the 25GB package LTE Tricom, but it's the MIFI dongle, not a phone, I get anything between 11Mbps-48Mbps. I'm in Villa Marina, near Los Rios.

    Nice bandwidth speeds. I finally went to the Tricom office to inquire and discovered that they use CDMA. Useless for my GSM iPhone.
