Sprint 4G Rollout Updates
Wednesday, February 22, 2012 - 3:33 AM MST
OK, Sprint 4G Rollout Updates is prepared to name the third city that Sprint's Network Vision vendor Alcatel/Lucent is deploying during 2012...Washington, D.C. The District will soon be getting another LTE option, but this time via the Now Network. In the past few days, we announced that Sprint is working on Network Vision/LTE Deployment in the San Francisco Bay market and Boston market. And now we can tell you that the Sprint Washington DC market will begin Network Vision and LTE Deployment before mid year 2012.
Sprint's DC market covers the District of Columbia and the adjacent Maryland and Northern Virginia suburbs. Alcatel/Lucent is preparing for mobilization and work should begin in a few months on converting its 900 sites to Network Vision. The entire market will take approximately 6 months to complete, wrapping up before the end of the year. The Baltimore Sprint market will have its 450+ sites fully converted and operational by the time DC comes online, making for a large contiguous super LTE cluster. Once complete, you will be able to run non stop on I-95 from Fredricksburg, Virginia, through DC and Baltimore all the way to Bel Air, Maryland with a continuous LTE signal.
Sprint 4G Rollout Updates can bring you this information about 2012 deployment markets because we have been tipped off about Network Vision information from inside sources. With this information we are able to reasonably conclude how and when Sprint intends to deploy Network Vision and LTE in every market in the country.
We will continue to scour through the data and gather deployment information for your use. It is our intent to provide at a minimum, all the Sprint markets that will likely begin Network Vision/LTE upgrades in 2012. And we intend to do so in a series of articles over the next few weeks. We will not likely announce communities slated for 2013, because the dates we hold for 2013 markets appear tentative and subject to change. With the many variables between now and 2013, Sprint could make significant shifts in deployment plans. Based on dynamic need change, funding, market permitting difficulties, etc.
With the release of Washington, D.C. today, that brings the total of Network Vision markets announced to ten. Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Baltimore and Kansas City as announced by Sprint. Chicago, San Francisco, Boston and Washington, D.C. announced by Sprint 4G Rollout Updates.
Stay tuned to Sprint 4G Rollout Updates. On Friday we will be announcing another Network Vision/LTE market that Alcatel/Lucent will be working to bring online for Sprint in 2012. Check in at S4GRU.com for all the latest updates! Become a member today. Membership is free and easy.
