Just joined. Been watching this page for a while. Memphis is suppose to start in September but when I check there site they aren't showing many updates over next 6 months. the ones that are are mostly voice and data capacity, not many data speed. any incite into what I'm missing? thanks again

Apparently you are referring to Sprint's own map of local upgrades accessible here? Those scheduled upgrades have nothing to do with the Network Vision network rebuild project that includes LTE, but rather "band-aid" maintenance upgrades on the legacy network.

To expand on Brad's comment above, Sprint's site network.sprint.com shows maintenance upgrades being performed under their maintenance contract with Ericsson. On that site they show additional capacity adds for voice and data and additional speed upgrades (via additional T1 lines). These are not related to Network Vision/LTE deployments.

appreciate it, I live in northern Mississippi. and there are two towers near my house. is Memphis still on cue for starting September.

 

The Running List thread here at S4GRU still shows Memphis as a Second Round market with an "Anticipated Launch" in November. And there are a lot of caveats associated with that projection.

Sprint seems a little behind as well (or rather their OEMs especially erricson). I expect someone at Sprint HQ will be lighting a fire under someone's butt soon if they haven't already.

 

I think backhaul needs to get far enough out (maybe 30-40 sites) before Ericsson and the subcontractors will mobilize. Otherwise, if the backhaul doesn't stay far enough out ahead, they will run into schedule issues with lots of workers standing around waiting for another site. If the deployment is too inefficient, the subcontractors will start complaining about change orders. I see it happen all the time in my line of work.

Maybe Erricson needs to kindle a fire (pun absolutely intended) under the backhaul vendors. Someone has to be getting in trouble here. If not then the government needs to get involved as these backhaul vendors being purposefully slow could be construed as anti-competitive behavior by (and I'm guessing this is who is at fault) the big telcos such as ATT and VZ.

 

Edit: also, their policy may not be the best.

 

Look at chicago, sure they have issues (which rest almost solely on motorola equipment) but they are almost right on schedule. Maybe just installing the equipment without new backhaul first is better. That way, they get these towers completed as soon as possible. "EDIT: may not have been a good idea to include that info, sorry". Once launched I predict Chicago will have a much better network overall coverage-wise compared to all other markets as they have a much better site density. I hope sprint learns from chicago that doing other NV work ahead of time is a good idea (although here it was a necessity).

I'm with you brother , I'm in Toledo Ohio these band aids are not working . Sprint needs to get hard core with Ericsson

 

mobile EVO

they have helped a

Little bit but are prob being overloaded again but we can only hope that Toledo could be in the third round..considering again that every market around us is getting or starting nv this year

    • ...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.
