Sprint 4G Rollout Updates

Thursday, April 5, 2012 - 1:41 AM MDT

 

¡Hola mis amigos en Puerto Rico! Aquí está su información...I finally am able to bring you a schedule update for Isla del Encanto and the Virgin Islands. Samsung and their subcontractors are indeed beginning work in the PR/VI market this month and will get started on the first 22 sites.

The Network Vision schedule for the entire market will run from April, out into November. We have included several maps of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands in the this article. In these maps you can get an idea of how and when they will be deploying throughout the islands.

 

The entire PR/VI market deployment does not start in one city and then spread out across to other areas. Rather, each part of the market gets more towers month after month until the whole market is complete. If this schedule holds, Sprint will likely announce the market as live in August. The San Juan area will be largely complete by the end of September.

One thing that is not for certain at this time, is whether 4G LTE will be complete and live in conjunction with these dates. Some of the source information appeared as if 4G LTE was being deployed later. However, we cannot confirm this information at this time. As we know more specificity about LTE deployment in Puerto Rico, we will bring that information to you. As always, stay tuned to Sprint 4G Rollout Updates for all the latest Network Vision news.

I really hope this is true, seriously. I had no doubt about PR getting upgraded fairly quickly being that they are so densely populated but I am really having doubts about the VI. The Virgin Islands has always been treated like a red headed step child when it comes to any kind of technological improvements, so we will see how this goes over the next few months.

Any update regarding NYC?

 

There are two sites live in NYC. Maps are available in our Sponsors area. We will likely have a NYC Market update article in Mid April.

There are a couple of cell towers that are being tested, they have wimax but it would be interesting to see if they already have LTE... i guess we will find out on April 22 when the nexus come out... Or if somebody around has a Sectrum Analyzer or something that can verify that :D

Any news about the network vision lte? for Puerto Rico?

 

Deployment has already begun in PR. It will run through the end of the year. However, LTE will not likely start to go live before the end of summer because they are still working on the 4G core in Bayamon.

is there any update on the cataño tower for the 4g

 

There are two sites around Catano. The site near Hwy 5/165 off Calle Barbosa will start to be worked on until early July. The one north of Catano off Hwy 869 on the rooftop of the twin mid rise buildings will not start work until September.

 

However, the 4G Core in Bayamon will not likely be ready before Fall. So sites that get upgrades before the core is ready will only be broadcasting upgraded 3G. And once the 4G core is live to serve the whole island, then the already completed sites will start broadcasting 4G LTE.
