Hand-Off, Reconnect To Verizon LTE Can Take 2 Minutes

CWmike writes “Verizon Wireless admits that laptop users with USB modems on its new high-speed LTE network may experience up to a two minute delay when switching over from a 3G coverage zone. ‘Hand-offs can take up to a couple minutes, but that was expected and a fix is in the works,’ Verizon spokesman Jeffrey Nelson told Computerworld. Also, to get back on LTE once already having been in an LTE zone, one tester said it was necessary to unplug the modem and plug it back in again. Nelson said that was not necessary, although he did say it could take up to two minutes to reconnect to LTE. Nelson said Verizon was working with a modem maker on the hand-off problem, but didn’t say which maker. Business Insider said the hand-off problem occurred with an LG model. ‘We’re working with the modem maker for quick update, but no ETA yet.’ Nelson said. A Mac OS version was also said to be close.”
