Discuss your case with your attorney. They will know the process for enforcing your speedy trial right. Subpoenas should be sent ASAP. However you should know at day 90 you file a notice of expiration, and a hearing will be set, and at the hearing a trial date will be set within ten days, for a total of this 105. Also to satisfy speedy, the venire must be sworn in, that is it, the entire trial is not required to be complete in 105 days. Also, if speedy is waived, you can only file a demand for speedy trial, in which the time period is 60 days from filing.
Talk to your lawyer about filing a demand for speedy if you want a trial within the speedy time frame. If you are not ready for trial than waive speedy and continue the case so you and your lawyer can adequately prepare.

After 90 days from the date of arrest if your case has not gone to trial you will need to file a "Notice of Expiration of Speedy Trial Time." No later than 5 days from the date of the filing of a notice of expiration of speedy trial time, the court shall hold a hearing on the notice and, unless the court finds that a continuance was sought by the defendant, shall order that the defendant be brought to trial within 10 days.
It is not an automatic discharge that the time for speedy trial has run, you still have to invoke the rule.
Careful! Invoking your right to a speedy trial can be a double-edged sword. Basically, you are telling the court you are ready to go, this instant, for trial. If you don't plan to call any witnesses, or have your witnesses properly subpoenaed and available, you might catch the State on the back foot. If you aren't ready to face a jury almost immediately, however, the demand can backfire. Judges will literally put everything on hold to get the case heard, and may then be deaf to any please to the bench. If you are planning to use this is a tactic to force the State into a better plea offer, some State Attorneys will revoke all offers once the demand is in. Before you file, generally you should know the State's key witnesses are unavailable, or you should be sure you actually do want a trial in front of a jury of your peers.
