Spectrum Shortages - Why it's happening and what can be done

by Jeff Foster Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Friday, April 20, 2012 - 11:31 AM MDT   Is there a "spectrum shortage?" Those two words send shivers down the spines of wireless industry executives. New services demand ever more spectrum, and, the story goes, there simply isn't enough spectrum available. An Internet search engine will easily find hundreds of thousands of links to the term "spectrum shortage." Many claim that it will be the downfall of America. The dwindling availability o

Sprint Galaxy Nexus available for pre-order now...physically available on April 22nd

by Robert Herron Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Monday, April 16, 2012 - 8:29 AM MDT   I woke up this morning to AndroidCentral.com proclaiming to us all that Sprint's Galaxy Nexus is now available for pre-order. Talk about a soft launch!   Pricing is $199 on contract, as has been said the past few weeks. Looks like the device will be available in stores on April 22nd. It sounds like pre-orders can get into the hands of customers even slightly earlier by their language. Seems consistent wit

Some may even experience delays of a day or two. However, if you bought the 32GB model (like me), your delay will be until next we

Sprint's PCS spectrum position in Memphis goes from nothin' but a hound dog to Graceland

by Andrew J. Shepherd Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Thursday, September 3, 2015 - 3:28 AM MDT   Ladies and gentlemen, C Spire has left the building. In Memphis. Or so it seems.   Based on an FCC spectrum lease filing that came down the pike earlier this week, Cellular South dba C Spire has applied to lease all of its spectrum in Memphis to Sprint. S4GRU has not been able to confirm yet, but this almost certainly appears to signal a C Spire exit from Memphis -- its large

by Robert Herron Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Friday, August 3, 2012 - 4:25 PM MDT   There has been a lot of discussion around our forums, and certainly in many other places, how Sprint's LTE coverage maps of launched markets have been pretty overly optimistic. To say it nicely. Today I decided to create some LTE coverage maps for St. Joseph, Missouri for our members usage, and for grins, I pulled up the Sprint LTE coverage map for the same area. The difference is pretty noticeable.

The Subsidy Quandary...Do you prefer cheaper phones or cheaper plans?

Scott Johnson Sprint 4G Rollout Update Saturday, March 24, 2012 - 4:14 PM MDT   What would you do to get a $20 per line discount on your monthly bill? Would you pay full price for your cellphone? That is what Cole Brodman, T-Mobile’s Chief Marketing Officer would like to see happen. In fact, T-Mobile already offers a discounted plan for customers who forego a subsidy on their device. This works out fairly well for T-Mobile’s GSM customers who want to use an unlocked international or AT&a
