Sprint's extended LTE in Northern WI and the UP looks closer to AT&T's LTE coverage than it does Cellcom's.

If that is true, expect AT&T LTE limited to 3g speeds. Cellcomm or Verizon would still be used for phone calls.

Same thoughts here. Looks very similar to AT&T's LTE reach (in my experience)

Def would of been nice to have had Extended LTE when I went to go see family and friends in Maine back at the end of June. Was all roaming LTE and hit my cap of 300mb quick when outside of my coverage area in Maine. At least this is a step in the right direction.

According to Günther’s Post, more enhancements could come as soon as November.

Wonder what they have in store for us.

Exciting times ahead for Sprint’s Coverage Map!

I’m glad this important section of the Sprint website is finally getting some major attention.

"even more enhancements coming soon"  -

He is of course referring to the entire T-Mobile coverage map becoming Extended LTE Sprint service

:rofl:

Pikeville, KY is showing LTE on the Sprint map update, been there twice since the change and still 3G only.  Guess they're running behind a little.  (KX05HO025)

It has been formally accepted complete. It is also going to show up in our next update map. Not sure why it's not live.

I just got back from a 5 day trip to Lexington, KY (we are about to move back there after 12 years) and was pleasantly surprised by the proliferarion of mini macs. Speeds were not super fast but way better than it would've been without that deployment.  And band 25 CA is on every tower I connected to in the metro area (in cases where band 41 was absent).

If what I've seen over on reddit is correct, that's not what the change is. They're going to be dropping the current map in favor of one that is like U.S. Cellular's.

I hope Sprint switches to Google Maps too.

I was looking at some support articles on the website this morning and it looks like Sprint has added the ability for users to submit network issue reports through the website. Under the Support Tab there’s a link which says “Report a Network Issue”.

Looks like Google Maps is used for this feature. Perhaps it will also come to the actual Coverage Map as you said.

I'm incredibly pleased about US Cellular no longer counting as roaming, assuming that's true.


Can anyone confirm if that is in fact true? That would be significant news for those of us who travel in northern New England where Sprint has hardly any native coverage..

They are late... :(

They have been doing pretty good on monthly updates recently.  Hope it continues.

I saw some changes on the map earlier this week, new coverage in Texas. However, the "updated on" didn't change.

The new map looks and works so much better than the old one.

Hopefully these major updates are still in the works.

i was told they put off the November update  "because of the Thanksgiving holiday and the associated freezes put in place to minimize impacts, we won't be doing the next coverage map update until early December."

I’m happy they’re not rushing it through just to say they did it. Something this important needs to be verified and Q/C’d properly.

Sprint's coverage map now has KX05HO025 (Pikeville, KY) as 3G only now.  I never picked an LTE signal from any band on that tower.

    • In the event the merger doesn’t go through, do you think Sprint will sell some of its band 41 spectrum to T-Mobile? since Sprint needs the $ and T-Mobile needs the high-band spectrum
    • I read the portion of the filing that is being referenced in the article and it makes it seem as though both Sprint and T-Mobile are in a dire position. It's funny that despite all that has been stated, both carriers have 5G plans going out at least 6 years from now prepared already, should they be forced to operate separately.  The main issue presented is that Sprint can't deploy 2.5GHz 5G in rural areas because they don't have the money to do so. The only way to get more money is to have more customers. Because of Sprint's poor network perception, the only way for Sprint to get new customers is to lower prices. And because of low prices, Sprint can't make as much money off of their customers so they're stuck in a loop.  T-Mobile on the other hand has the money to build a broad 5G network over 600MHz, but they don't have the spectrum to provide 5G speeds like Sprint can. So they'll be able to claim the title of the largest 5G network by square mileage but with speeds that aren't much better than current LTE speeds. Sprint will a larger network capable of providing faster speeds. Basically, T-Mobile won't be able to compete effectively in the 5G space in terms of offering "true 5G experience" to their customers until they can get everyone off of LTE which isn't happening soon. The solution is that in merging, the New T-Mobile will be able to deploy 2.5GHz over a large area so that more people can have access to those higher speeds that they wouldn't get by 600MHz only or because of Sprint's smaller network.
    • Yup and we could have Sling for free lol
    • Yeah, Dish could have invested all that money that they invested in spectrum on Sprint's network instead. They could have brought the AWS-4 25x20 band of spectrum to sprint to strengthen Sprint's midband position, they would not have needed to bid on the AWS-3 auction and they could have probably acquired a 10x10 band of 600MHz.
