Deployment of Wiimax

Currently on the Sprint website I can see that new antennas are going up or have gone up in the past month or so. The thing is the only 4g in that area is Wimax and not LTE. Why would Sprint still be investing in this technology that it is moving away from? Why don't they just start putting up LTE antennas? It doesn't make any sense to be, but if you have any insight I would greatly appreciate it.

It might be , but it just seems odd that wimax started to pop up after the completion of the new antennas. I mean we might of had Wimax before, but it was never advertised or acknowledged.

WiMax has been active in Laredo for over a year: http://s4gru.spruz.com/pt/Current-List-of-SprintClear-4G-Unannounced-Cities-Protection-Sites---June-2-2011/blog.htm

 

We tracked WiMax deployment site by site. The WiMax service in Laredo is a Protection Site. More info about Protection Sites is here: http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/6-what-are-protection-sites/

 

There has not been any WiMax deployment since November 2011. We announced the last site to go live: http://s4gru.com/index.php?/blog/1/entry-206-new-4g-wimax-protection-site-in-millvillebethany-beach-delaware/

 

We have available in our Sponsor section maps of all the WiMax Protection Sites. For more information about becoming a Sponsor: http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/1195-information-about-s4gru-sponsorship-levels-and-how-to-become-a-sponsor/

Doesn't this belong in the Wimax forum?

 

I had just moved it when you typed that, because someone complained via the Report feature. Funny timing.

Typo... <_<

 

Could these upgrades possibly be LTE then?

 

No. The South Texas market will not begin Network Vision/LTE deployments until 2013. Any work that Sprint could be doing in the Laredo area would be associated with contract maintenance upgrades. These are shown at network.sprint.com

 

However upgrades at Sprint's website only show voice and 3G improvements. Not LTE or WiMax.

I hear you. You just want something to "grease the wheels" to get LTE there in Lardo.
