LTE wait list duration?

Those of you that have gotten the LTE upgrade, how long did you have to wait to schedule your install?

I contacted my SC back in October about getting the LTE upgrade. They told me I'd be added to the wait list and they would contact me when it's available.
I'm curious how long everyone else has had to wait; is 3 months normal?

I had to initially wait about 5 weeks, but that was because the LTE upgrade was new and not released yet at the time. Maybe you should call the service center again and ask, because you may have been forgotten?

all service centers are not equal in their level of service, maybe your SC is busier than others, are you flexible? try calling another one and see if they schedule is more open.

I talked with someone in syosset and basically had no clue what I was talking about. I had to educate him on what it is and how much it costs. No guess they haven't done many yet.

Definitely sounds service center dependent. I scheduled my 3y service for late Feb and asked them to do the LTE upgrade at that time, and I was informed that it would be no problem to do so then. Of course, that was six weeks away from when I requested it.:smile:

I had not heard about a wait list. I scheduled annual service with Decatur, GA SC late Nov. but pickup service was only available for Jan 7. I requested LTE and it was installed when I picked it up yesterday. It is a big improvement for map loading. Service advisor said it was the thing more customers were happy about of any updates they had done.

I am having it done the first week of March when the car is in for the annual service.

LTE's been around for years, shocked they decided to go with 3G.

The Model S was delivered in 2012 so most of the design for the electronics would've been finalized in 2011 at the latest. The LTE rollout in the US started in late 2011. It's highly unlikely that there would have been LTE modems hardened for automotive platforms on the market back then.

Ok, that explains it. For some reason I was thinking it was a 2014.
