Faster rollout coming soon?


Recommended Posts

With an (almost) complete target set for the end of 2013... Which is pretty fast, shouldn't we be seeing an (extremely) faster rollout coming in the few months?

 

It seems like there should be market launches similar to Verizon or more?

 

Or instead of launching cities like Verizon, are they going to launch cities and branch off of them slowly? Not sure if that made sense but maybe someone will get me.

Sprint will not be launching "markets" that are cities like verizon does. Sprint is upgrading the entire market, not just hitting large cities and surrounding metro areas. A market could be a whole state. Every site will be upgraded to network vision standards. And yes, we should start seeing them completing sites at an increasingly fast pace over the next couple months.

Right so then how fast will these markets be coming at us? Sprint is still announcing them like "cities"

 

They are ramping up now as everyone is trained on how everything works. It will get a lot faster pace and then plateau.

 

The first markets are named as cities because these are the largest cities in America. The market covers a wide swath around the city that the market is named after. As the markets proceed to the 2nd round, you will see more named after the region instead of the largest city. The Minnesota market covers the Minneapolis saint Paul metro area, which is in the top 20 metro areas, but it also covers Duluth, Rochester St. Cloud etc. Verizon announced all those "markets" separate.

You have to keep in mind that Sprint and its vendors are attacking the largest metropolitan cities first so they take longer to deploy enough coverage so that there are not that many gaping holes in LTE coverage. If you look at some of the recent markets that Robert has provided market updates like Jacksonville and Charlotte where its only going to take 2 months after the first LTE sites are launched to be market ready deployable. I expect to see Sprint ramp up their LTE market announcements dramatically in the first half of 2013 where the majority of the second round markets will be deployed.

    • Added, and 2 more estimated sites: T-Mobile eNB 876480. Looks like its located at (40.62210996397784, -73.97627312607108), as the tower looks like a Sprint setup. T-Mobile eNB 875632. Both this site and Sprint eNB 9022 seem to be located at (40.61640722407462, -73.96985178560767).
    • Many of these sites I am uploading are for sites that do not exist, yet.  Although, I suppose I could go into NR only mode every time I connect to a new site, and then switch back, allowing all the TAC NR trails that occur to now have a home. Ideally, I would love to ne able to add the TAC's myself.  I have the NR Trails CSV file downloaded, and I see all the TAC-less NR entries.  Is there any way I can edit and manually upload them myself?  Maybe create a portal for such an upload?  Or at least give me a way to create at least one manual entry for every new site? Robert
    • Could we send the TAC as -1 if it’s invalid? Then, if there’s and existing site that matches the other info, I could match the web data entry up with it (despite the TAC being absent). 
    • Mine has been enabled.  And they show up in my device logs with the TAC null. Robert
    • If the TAC is missing, an entry is still recorded in the log, but it would not be included in uploads.. so you could probably manipulate a trail log export to add the data to the map if you were able to nail down the sites without the TAC. EDIT: Sites with a missing TAC are only recorded in the log if the option to do so is enabled (Logger > Log Sites with Missing TAC).
