I spoke with a corporate Sprint representative who told me that 4G LTE would be here in Midland, TX by around March and that there are actually two towers here already equipped but they just need to be activated. In the meantime, I have started a facebook page to voice our desire for LTE here in West Texas. Midland was one of the first cities in the USA to have 4G Wimax so I think we should also have LTE as soon as possible!

Here's the link---please like- THANKS!

It is possible that the West Texas market will start soon. It was originally slated to begin in early 2013. However, there are not 2 newly converted sites yet in the Midland area. The CSR you spoke with was probably confused with the Network Maintenance Upgrades shown in the Glance system and Network Vision/LTE upgrades. However, if you see any activity at any Midland/Odessa Sprint sites, take some pictures and post them. We can usually tell you from pics if they are NV work or not.

Thanks for all you guys do!

That's strange. On network.sprint.com it lists this tower and about 8 months ago it was listed as new.

Not strange at all. Sprint has used dozens of different PCS capable panels. I don't know every single one used. And these do not look like any I've ever seen before.

Direct from Sprint Corporate:

"Hi Nicholas,


Bill White forwarded me your message because I am the person on his team responsible for Network PR. The information I have suggests that Midland/Odessa should begin getting 4G LTE mid-summer and will fill in over the next several months. I wish it could have been March! Thanks for your loyalty to Sprint; we’re working really hard to get all of our customers 4G LTE as quickly as possible.

If I can help in any other way, please let me know.

Thanks,
Kelly"

I just spotted this tower being worked on in san angelo. If I'm not crazy it looks like a sprint network. Multiple ruus and many cables connecting on the bottom

You aren't crazy. The first NV sites were accepted in Abilene and San Angelo last week. Over on our Sponsor maps they show the locations.

How can you tell if a site has been accepted on the sponsor maps?
