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.
