Not yet. Not scheduled to start until 2013. Unless they start ahead of schedule. Which has happened in a couple of markets.

These are maintenance upgrades. They are shown at network.sprint.com. They are not associated with Network Vision or LTE.

If it's Maui, then probably going to be [well] after a Oahu launch since more people/demand. Kahului/Wailuku, Kihei, and Lahaina will probably launch first just like they did with Wimax.

Nope, the difference is one tower is solely Sprint, the other has every other carrier and then some on it.

The little one or the huge one.

And i did not know Multipul carriers could host their spectrum on 1 tower.

The little one is Sprint, the large one has multiple carriers.

 

Many many many towers, in fact most have more than one carrier on them.

Like you can give an idea to sprint where a location for a tower could be.

Absolutely not. These things are preplanned and scrutinized by dozens if not hundreds of professionals who take into account the local geography, penetration requirements due to buildings etc, local ordnances and rules regarding towers (pita in a lot of areas), etc etc.

 

If they need a tower then they'll get one. Plus sprint has nor tmobile owns no towers. They sold them long ago (tmobile sold em about a month or two ago) and lease it.

I assume "so" was supposed to be "no."

 

Don't you know all other forums/sites get their Network Vision info from us? ;)

just called the local sprint store and they said they got a rumor that LTE and Network Vision should start in Summer and may be earlier.

4 Employees said this already

 

 

Summer is on Friday, 21 June 2013

236 days, 20 hours remain till Summer

(Maybe LTE)

I know this may be weird with the tsunami going on yesterday

but Data Speeds are VERY fast during emergencies...

 

not sure if Sprint ups the QoS or what ever.

Aloha Robert I just wanted to know if there's any updates regarding the Honolulu market?

 

Specifically... is Sprint still on track to start construction starting on February 2013? I believe that was the date you told me couple of months back?

Thanks for any information!
