Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
Saturday, February 4, 2012 - 10:15 PM MST


Sprint has gone live with a new Nextel iDEN network page. A graphic on the launch page states, "Important news about Nextel network coverage. We're making changes to the Nextel network. Find out how this might impact you."

From this page you can enter in a zip code and it will take you to a map showing iDEN network towers in the area of the zip code you entered. In an article yesterday, Sprint 4G Rollout Updates provided some details about Sprint's iDEN Decommissioning. In the article, we explain how the first iDEN sites being decommissioned are in the New Orleans market.

In the graphic below, you can see the iDEN sites that are under consideration for decommissioning in New Orleans. Currently, only the New Orleans/Baton Rouge market is shown with detailed towers slated for decommissioning. Other Nextel markets are identified that changes are being evaluated for future impacts. Sprint will update other towers for impacts on a 30-day rolling basis.






Thanks to Andrew J. Shepherd (WiWavelength) for the info. And thanks to rickie546's post in Howard Forums.
