Coverage Map Updated 2/16/2018

Recommended Posts

Post below what changes you notice.

EDIT: Seems that Cumberland, MD has 3G only data back on the map. Last month they removed it completely, but the towers are still on. The map is highly inaccurate having 3G only data in areas where there are Extended LTE coverage, and vice versa.

Looks like there might be a couple new sites online in Utah. 

Also, appears to be a new B41 protection site in Coffeyville, KS, and a clear conversion in Miami, OK.

See a new site outside of Macon, GA too, on 129 to the southeast.

Ever since the massive B41 coverage overhaul for Cleveland, OH market back in December, they haven't kept up with adding B41 new coverage from sites that have been live for over a month. :wall:

That's B41 only from the Protection Site.  The roaming pseudo native is from Golden West Wireless.

Way to ruin our hopes of actual expansion coming. Lol. I’m also hearing 800mhz is close to clearing for SoCal soon. 🤞🏾

I imagine it takes time for this information to flow across teams. I’m not sure what the lead time is for generating the Coverage Map updates, but perhaps that has something to do with it.

If you’re aware of specific sites that are missing, you should mention it in a reply to /u/Craig-S (https://www.reddit.com/user/Craig-S) on the Sprint Subreddit in this current Coverage Map thread:

/u/Craig-S is one of the people in charge of Sprint’s Coverage Map, and he’s participating in this thread.

He also said about a month ago in an older Coverage Map thread that they were reviewing all of their processes:

I love how much more active Sprint has been on Social Media; Dr. Saw and Craig-S especially!

    • 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.
