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

    • Checked and downloading a 1.6 MB Google Play System update.    Still reflects June 1 after.

    • The options to ignore GCI/NCI/PLMN/TAC are buggy.. working on resolving it. NSA cells are probably not being logged for most users yet.
    • Boost Mobile – the Newest Wireless Carrier – Launches New State-of-the-Art Nationwide 5G Network, Plans and Branding https://about.dish.com/2024-07-17-Boost-Mobile-the-Newest-Wireless-Carrier-Launches-New-State-of-the-Art-Nationwide-5G-Network,-Plans-and-Branding I'm really digging the relaunch of the brand. The new app is a lot better than before in that it actually feels like they're going a more premium route. The BoostOne app tried to gamify wireless service by making you want videos or download games in order to get discounts on your bill. Now it's decluttered and basically only account management. It's perfect. I was on a promotional $25/month unlimited plan on Boost Mobile and I just switched to the new $25 forever plan which is pretty much the same as before, the only exception being that now I'm price locked. The only thing I wish they'd do is start using QCIs instead of throttling once you use up your allotment of "premium data". I understand that they don't have as much capacity as the big 3 and that they're super reliant on AT&T and T-Mobile outside of major metros but hitting 30GB and being throttled to 512kbps is not competitive. They then try to charge $30 for an extra 10GB of high speed data. The big 3 and their prepaid brands have basically given up on hard throttling and use prioritization instead. They should consider doing the same. The next step for them is getting their name on Apple's websites this fall when the new iPhones drop. That's some of the best advertising a carrier can have. Instantly millions of people will learn that Boost Mobile is an actual carrier if they can pull that off.
    • Use cloud features or backup files first before updating with this firmware.  I updated my S24 Ultra with this update.  T-Mobile and Verizon network esims worked fine.  Dish Rainbow sim appeared to work fine.  Right after that, when I rebooted to another non-public test esim which previously worked fine, I got the Samsung Welcome screen.
