Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
Wednesday, April 18, 2012 - 12:59 AM MDT
Last week we brought you a live LTE coverage map from Sprint sites in the Atlanta/Athens, Georgia area, and now we are bringing you a Sprint LTE coverage map from Waco, Texas.
Waco is in the Sprint Austin market. The coverage you see below is from a 4G LTE FIT (Field Implementation Test) that Sprint and Network Vision Partner Ericsson created. It was put together to begin testing and training LTE deployment, as well as a field testing zone for LTE devices.
This coverage is live now. If any of you folks down Waco way get your hands on a Sprint 4G LTE device in the next couple of days, let us know what you find when scanning for a LTE signal. Speed test from Ericsson field test reports look mighty fine, with speeds over 20Mbps when you have a strong LTE signal.
Sponsors have access to interactive versions of these maps and can zoom in and pan around. More LTE coverage maps are coming soon. Stay tuned to S4GRU.com for all the latest Sprint Network Vision/LTE news and information.
P.S. - Full Network Vision deployment in the rest of the Austin market will begin in June!
