Sprint announces 9 new cities where work is underway


Recommended Posts

Sprint just received 3 billion dollars from Softbank... I would have hoped for more than just 9 cities?

Come on Sprint.... Kick it up a notch!

You can't be serious here.... They are and have been kicking it up a notch... One must understand what it entails to do everything they are doing before they judge performance....

This is the kind of comment I would expect from a casual Engadget user.

You're assuming that it's purely an issue of money that's keeping them from deploying more quickly, when in reality I think they're moving as quickly as they possibly can already. Remember, Network Vision will both save Sprint a lot of money and will help to retain customers... though it's for different reasons, they want it done just as badly as we do.

Not to mention you have to find the individuals with the skill set that sprint needs to renovate its towers alongside additional training on company rules & equipment installation procedures. Money can only do so much. Logistics, training, and planning matters a lot. Throwing money at a problem doesn't solve it.

More specific please? (location)

 

Use Google Maps and zoom in on 275 Commercial St - St Paul MN and you'll see an old photo of the tower under work. This is the major Sprint tower that serves the east side of St Paul.

Where did you find out that it is a Sprint tower?

Was based upon my signal strenth experience when travelling through the area. I checked on line registrations and now see this is a T Moble Tower :(

No worries. I have also seen work being done hoping it was Sprint, but turning out to be T-Mobil and AT&T. Nevertheless, we do know work is being done on Sprint’s network in MN and it’s only a little more time before LTE is live.

 

 

If you become a sponsor you can access the sponsor section which shows Sprint’s cell sites and Network Vision sites that have been completed.

I am serious. I still mainly see the same states

Just different cities when new markets are announced. If I remember correctly? Didn't sprint say they would have over 100 LTE markets by the end of the year?

 

Will sprint even come close to that number with a little over a month left?

Sprint was very careful to not say that. They said they had 100 cities where deployment is under way. Sprint is trying to under promise and over deliver. But instead it is more like under promise and deliver.

If you took a step back and tried to grasp and understand everything that is involved in this deployment, along with the obstacles they have encountered along the way, then maybe just maybe your opinion would be more realistic.

Your initial post was about them receiving $ from Softbank and that that influx should speed up deployment... $$ is NOT the only driving factor, nor is it even the main one either. No amount of $ can speed up permits being approved, supplies being made where short, nor can it help where there is simply a lack of skilled labor to perform the duties needed. Oh and let's not forget the weather too...

 

There are a million moving parts here and $ is just a small part of it.

Edit: wouldn't let me edit previous post on tapatalk for some reason as I kept getting a "quote-mismatch" error

    • ...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.
