Sprint Exec Says 25 LTE Market By End of Year

Recommended Posts

If Sprint moves to tiered data plans after upgrading to LTE I will be gone along with most of there user-base.

 

No, I highly doubt that you have the research to back up the assertion that "most" Sprint subscribers would leave.

 

As for you, where would you go? If you think VZW or AT&T, I cannot help but laugh. Both carriers have the insidious motive and oligopolistic means to foist even more consumer unfriendly policies on you, and they are already doing so.

 

Thus, I would hope that you have another viable carrier in mind other than VZW or AT&T. Leaving Sprint for the Twin Bells would, long term, be cutting off your nose to spite your face.

It was an email chain I was copied on. It just said that some markets slated to begin deployment in 2013 are having some initial backhaul work starting in the 3rd Quarter of 2012.

Places where backhaul is getting put in early and before the tower equipment....is it being connected to the legacy equipment until the new equipment is in place?....

 

If it is are they splitting the backhaul feed when they install the new equipment so they can test that without shutting the legacy off?...

It may be in some places. However, I believe there is some legacy vendor equipment that is not compatible with new types of backhaul being deployed. And in first and second round markets they are not hooking up new backhaul to legacy sites. They don't hook up new backhaul until NV work is being done.

 

Also, in the reference to some initial backhaul work, it could be completely infrastructure related and not necessarily complete and terminated service in at the base station. I don't really know the entirety of the scope involved for the backhaul in question.

Okay that makes sense there. Thanks.
