Sprint says about one quarter behind on LTE target

Says saw some delays from vendors from material shortages, hurricanes. Says delay won't meaningfully change expecations of timing or cost of the project.

 

I guess this came out during the confernce call..

Obviously this isnt Alcatel-Lucent since they've been sped up. Samsung is doing OK as well. Ericcson is the one doggin it.

Yes, this was stated directly on the conference call. They also stated they have approx. 4300 sites online which is vastly different that what has been reported here..

I think they are counting updates and not sites. They always state higher amounts, yet they do not have any significant coverage areas than what we report. So who do you think is accurate?

I've heard field reports of Ericsson equipment delays recently. This may account for slower production rates in Ericsson markets.

Trust me I believe what is reported here is 100% accurate. If more sites were online we would see it being reported from more community members.

I wonder if they included Shentel numbers in that total as well? I would imagine not but it's possible.I never really noticed if Sprint includes Shentel tower counts in their totals?

 

We count active and verified Shentel sites in our totals. I think there was just under a dozen in our last update total. Since neither Sprint nor Shentel give us the info, we use observations from our members for Shentel sites.

The discrepancy always has existed since day one. This time it is actually a little less than it has been in the past. However, our data for our maps comes directly from Sprint.

I'd have to disagree. It looks like Alca-Lu is behind in Southern California. There should be 100's of live LTE sites in San Diego, Orange, and San Bernadino/Riverside. There's not much progress in their second round probably because LA is sucking up all the resources.

What 2 quarters in and one behind already?

 

(mumble) (hand jesture) o

 

More like 3+ quarters in. Also, if you were going to fall behind, it would be at the start due to getting equipment, logistics, bugs worked out, etc.

Orange and San Bernandino/Riverside began deployment on time.It was not any delays I dont know about San Diego schedule date to begin.

I was referring to the information from the premier section maps regarding deployment dates. Most of Orange County's dates were after San Diego so it makes me wonder why you would claim Orange County started on time and San Diego was not late.

Hurricanes? Ha!

 

Please name where a hurricane delayed them? My list would be very small and they could have simply picked another tower on the list and went back to that one a week or two later.

Isaac.... Sandy....

 

Wasn't aware Sprint had coverage in Jamaica and Cuba.

 

Isaac.. No delays there. Maybe Laplace and Plaquemines Parish for a week or two. Flip over to another tower and come back to those.

 

The hurricane thing was just an excuse. And would have only been at the most a few days delay as crews got out of the way but I don't think they had started in the New Orleans market then anyways.

 

They still haven't started in Baton Rouge almost 2 months after the hurricane happened and to be honest it really wasn't that much of a hurricane event.

Now to wait and see if that means they will catch up or a quarter behind is close enough, not a meaningful delay.

You also have to consider that it's not just wind and destruction. A simple rainy day can cause delays. And I Isaac brought a ton of rain inland, and moved extremely slowly. So work in the Kansas market, and part of the Texas markets could have been affected by that as well. Not that Ericsson was moving all that quickly anyway...

Haha. She's likely causing a stop in progress in Florida today, and could cause a huge headache for the Northeast this weekend and next week. Maybe they could see into the future delays?

 

If sprint was smart they would find a way to get Guantanamo service everyone knows the prisoners would be tortured by slow 3G speeds lol.

 

Due the Nor'East tropical storm front, Sprint should just mosey on over to the heart of the Midwest. ;) lol

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.
