So how many towers are left upgrading?

The deployment running list says 65% percent but that hasn't been updated since dec 11.

So I assume its more than that..

It's hard to tell until the running list is updated. New upgrades in the complete sites post doesn't necessarily correspond to new sites. They include previously upgraded sites now 4g upgraded. From my count they have about 50+ new sites still to work on, mostly in the metro area. Great pace!!

I just hope they complete the metro area soon because this horrible service is driving me nuts.

It has been growing pains lately, but it'll soon be over and we'll enjoy the benefits.

Yesterday I was driving from Carolina to Guaynabo and it was picking up lte signal very easily in areas where I had to toggle airplane mode. I updated the modem on my GN2 to LK8. Does this has anything to do?

A friend of mine that lives in Fontana Towers in Carolina right on the main highway called me this morning to tell me Sprint workers were there unloading some boxes that said Sprint, Samsung and LTE. He asked them and they said they were updating the system and installing new equipment today. I Belive this antenna covers the area of Monserate Ave and Plaza Carolina. This sighting abd the one yeaterday in Isla Verde confirms that work has started in Carolina area.Ill keep you posted with new info.

Nice. Let's wait for the next update to see if its appears as 3g/4g ready. The other tower near walgreens warehouse is already 3g/4g ready. But you cannot make a call for more than a minute because it get dropped. Also data speeds are awful even though is ehrpd.

So we are on the list of LTE launched market!!!!

 

 

Ring in the Holidays with Sprint 4G LTE: Available in Six New Markets, Including Indianapolis, Santa Rosa, Calif., and Southern Puerto Rico

 

 

 

Sprint’s all-new network brings power, speed and value to more customers

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), December 18, 2012 - Today, Sprint (NYSE:S) announced that it is delivering the speed, power and value of its all-new 4G LTE network to customers in six new areas. Customers can use Sprint 4G LTE to send holiday pictures, upload funny home videos, and check social networking sites for friend updates on holiday traditions all faster than ever before on their Sprint devices. Beginning today, customers in the following cities/counties can access 4G LTE service from Sprint:

  • Indianapolis/Carmel, Ind.
  • Santa Rosa/Petaluma, Calif.
  • Vallejo/Fairfield, Calif.
  • Southern Puerto Rico (including Ponce, Coamo and Guayama)
  • York/Hanover, Pa.
  • Franklin County, Pa.
  • Sprint also enhanced 4G LTE coverage around Shenandoah County, Va., and introduced 4G LTE to the neighboring Page County, Va.

“Just in time for the holidays, we are bringing 4G LTE to even more Sprint customers,” said Bob Azzi, senior vice president-Network, Sprint. “We strive to deliver a top-notch network experience, and customers in these newly launched areas will see 4G LTE service get better and better in the weeks and months ahead to reach even more places where they live, work and play. Customers should find Sprint 4G LTE consistent, reliable and fast.”

A strong, robust wireless network is increasingly important as wireless users want to access emails quickly, upload photos/videos to friends and family, and routinely check in with social networks – all on their smartphone. Customers in several new areas will be able to use their smartphones such as Samsung Galaxy S® III, Samsung Galaxy Victory™ 4G LTE or HTC EVO™ 4G LTE to share a picture, download a video, or check the Web with greater speed.

When you combine the power of 4G LTE with an Everything Data plan with Any Mobile, AnytimeSM, which includes unlimited Web, texting and calling to and from any mobile in America while on the Sprint Network, Sprint becomes the best choice in wireless.

Sprint’s network buildout, known as Network Vision, not only brings 4G LTE but should also give 3G customers better wireless signal strength, in-building coverage, and fewer dropped/blocked calls. These 3G improvements are already available to customers in several cities across the country, such as Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, D.C. All Sprint 3G customers in these areas, including the company’s prepaid customers on Assurance Wireless, Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile, can expect to see better coverage, improved network reliability and voice quality once the improvements come to their areas.

Sprint introduced its all-new 4G LTE network in July 2012 and now offers service in 49 marketsi. For the most up-to-date details on Sprint’s 4G LTE portfolio and rollout, please visit www.sprint.com/4GLTE. For detailed 4G LTE maps, providing coverage information right down to the address, please visitwww.sprint.com/coverage. Customers are encouraged to check back often, as the maps will be updated when coverage in these markets is enhanced.

eHRPD on a site doesn't mean the site is running on the new backhaul.. I get eHRPD on a tower near my house, with a blistering 98kbps download speed
