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.

to be specific on location

 

Im talking about

Hawaii,Maui

 

not Hawaii,Honolulu

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.

Asked around the sprint forum they have so plans/idea's for LTE In hawaii yet.

 

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)

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!

    • Or, more simply, have a physical SIM that I can just move from one device to another.  Problem [already] solved.  Carrier doesn't have to be involved at any point in the process. I'll be among many (I'm sure) who will be glad to know if you see it.  Here in the DC area, Dish hasn't really done much yet.  I think I've seen some Dish gear around Richmond, but nothing here. - Trip
    • I like VICE.  They actually report on news no one else is willing to report. A lot of the places they go no sane person would want to be there.  They put their life on the line in many cases to get a story. From stories about the avocado wars in Mexico, being in the front lines against ISIS and Ukraine, to being embedded with terrorist organizations.   FAA might have some conspiracy 5G nut on their team or something.  At work ever year we have some one come in and say "hey, can you turn off the WIFI in my room? I don't want its radiation".  It doesn't make sense and their reasoning is always uneducated conspiracy. I can see someone coming into my office and acting crazy over C band disregarding everything else.
    • I think on esims it depends on how they implement it. If you can freely activate them on one phone while having it loaded on many that would be great.   I will let you know when I see Boost Mobile native 5g live here. So far no sign of even the plmn being active which I figure will be my first indicator. I look at changing networks with the TNX Sim and seem to get a full list of all carriers and their alternate plmns.
    • This is a result of the change I mentioned above, sparked by @PedroDaGr8 trying to log AT&T cells with a non-AT&T SIM that was reporting "out of service" but still capturing cell info. For the moment (subject to change as I keep testing and getting feedback), the "Connecting to" prefix will disappear when you connect in a scenario like that. I may adjust it to show a special prefix like "Limited LTE" or "No Data LTE" to make it more clear what is going on, but I also need to make sure that's only appearing at the proper times. When you were seeing just "LTE" in your screenshots, was there anything unusual about your connection? I see the app indicated you couldn't make calls; could you transfer data? Can you send a diagnostic report next time you see that?   I'm seeing this more frequently, unfortunately -- it has something to do with Android's power saving efforts I believe. Was the app in the foreground when it happened? When the screen updates, the notification and home screen widget are also updated -- but as seen with the widget for the past couple of years, Android doesn't always execute the update. I'm constantly trying to find ways around these limitations, since the app is useless if it's displaying stale data.
    • Bleh, hope not.  The eSIM is a huge step backwards to the bad old days and I have no desire to encourage their use. But in any event, maybe I should get Boost service, then, if people are already seeing it.  I can use it for AT&T until Dish native gear goes live in this area.  Have to ponder that a bit. - Trip
