Sprint LTE-1900 Coverage Map of McKinney, TX as of 8/8/2012

And for comparison, here is Sprint's overly optimistic LTE coverage for the area. I used actual Sprint data for tower heights and figured range (downtilt) for sectors based on using 2/3 of the distance to the next adjacent tower.

I did it just for you. :rofl:

 

Seriously...we had a member come and say they live in McKinney and could not get a LTE signal on his GS3. So I created this map for him, and then posted it for everyone.

the official map from sprint coverage is even more exagerrated now past the point of false advertising...,

 

i live in melissa tx and while the map shows i supposed to have lte coverage, still nothing, only place i've gotten lte coverage is in small spots and i mean small boxes 1 foot by 1 foot... in mckinney, but not very many if i move one foot at church i lose it... frisco and plano i havent seen any lte service no matter where i go...

 

dont know if its a iphone 5 issue, or not, but soem friends with android lte devices claim the same...

Yeah, I noticed the Sprint map now shows almost all of east Collin County, Tx with LTE coverage. The changes would indicate a recent expansion from the previous map. Robert does not show the towers near Lake Lavon completed. They were scheduled for August completion. My wife's Iphone 5 is arriving soon so I hope to help map out what the truth is.

Correct. Both the S4GRU Coverage Map and Sprint Map shown at the top were from 8/8/2012. Coverages have probably changed since then.

Robert. can you confirm if towers DA73XC063 or DA73XC041 are LTE complete yet?

Robert. can you confirm if towers DA73XC063 or DA73XC041 are LTE complete yet? These are near Lake Lavon. If they are active, then I am out of luck. I'm surrounded by these 2 and DA73XC010 and DA60XC972. Still no LTE at home, although there is some nearby that I've mapped on Sensorly. I appreciate you checking for me.

As a Sponsor, you have access to the NV Sites Complete map. It don't have any more information about complete sites than what we show there. http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/517-nv-sites-complete/

Thanks. I saw your most recent update after I posted this. It shows DA73XC010 as complete and DA03XC192 also. Both are near Hwy. 75. The other 3 are not yet complete, however I can report that I got a weak LTE signal on CR 546 with download speeds of 5-6 Mbps. I also observed a strong signal on Hwy 380 at Airport Road of -80/90 Db and download speeds of 17-25 Mbps

    • The Kendall/Kerr/Gillespie PCS swap is a very nice win-win for AT&T and T-Mobile. Means both of them will have a 20x20 PCS channel, though in exchange T-Mobile goes from 10x10 to 5x5 on one of their spectrum blocks. I figure AT&T will start running n2 DSS on that channel, as they have enough customers in those areas to need the capacity, while T-Mobile will probably just run B2 LTE, as once Auction 108 finally clears they'll have plenty of n41 to play with. Guessing we'll see the non-G-block 5x5 slice running n25, but it would get aggregated with n71 rather than n41 I figure as n71 will remain 20x20 there until the STA goes away (and maybe after that, as if T-Mobile gets 700 MHz as the result of VZW buying West Central Wireless's spectrum there's no reason to run LTE in 600). Which makes me think that the next move is T-Mobile trading 700A for the 5x5 of orphaned PCS (E block) to VZW once the WCW transaction closes, as that would give VZW 20x20 PCS in the area, and would give T-Mobile 700 MHz in an area where they have none. Then VZW can either trade 700B to T-Mobile as well in exchange for the AWS I block in those areas (gives T-Mobile 10x10 B12, gives VZW 15x15 B66) or they can cut a deal with AT&T to give AT&T 10x10 B12 (AT&T has the lower C block), but I'm not sure what that deal would be if trading like for like (vs. AT&T handing VZW their upper tiny slice of B5, giving VZW 15x15 to play with in that band post-WCW-acquisition). EDIT: Just looked at AWS spectrum again, and if AT&T would rather have 10x10 B12 than 2x 10x10 AWS, they could swap AWS-D for VZW's 700B block. That would give VZW 20x20 AWS, and would take AT&T down to 10x10 + 5x5...which they'd likely be fine with as they have 20x20 PCS, small cells in the busy areas, and as a result of the transaction three 10x10 chunks of spectrum in the area below 1 GHz. And if VZW traded 700A to T-Mobile for PCS-E VZW would have 20x20 PCS as well. Which is quite useful in an area that's macro-only for VZW and likely not dense enough for proper mobile usage of CBRS or C-Band (and an area where VZW doesn't even run DSS now).
    • Yeah, $250 credit for an S22 is awful. tbf last year they didn't have solid upgrade credits until mid-late April, which is when I paid $225 to swap my S21 for an S22. Happy to wait 'til then for that kind of deal, though I'll be annoyed at battery life in the mean time.
    • Miserable upgrade credits from Samsung this year unless you want to rely on carrier financing. Sticking with S22U for a while. 
    • So far we've documented close to 100 Sprint conversions in NYC with permits still rolling in and that's only what we've identified manually. Tons of sites get converted/updated without permits so there's potentially a lot more that we haven't spotted yet. There are also dozens of sites that are still broadcasting the keep PLMN, some have been decommissioned but historically the vast majority have been converted.
