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? 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

    • ...and I just this morning realized you meant Cumberland, MD.  It threw me because there's an Ashby in Cumberland County, VA, which I'm far more familiar with. - Trip
    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
