Embedded above is a map of all the communities that Shentel is planning to launch service on Friday, November 23rd. The map contains locations of the cities, not the towers themselves. We will create a tower map in the future in the Sponsor section. When you click on the community name, it will tell you the number of Shentel sites in that community with Network Vision/LTE upgrades.

From the Wall Article: http://s4gru.com/index.php?/blog/1/entry-336-sprint-affiliate-shentel-to-launch-lte-on-125-sites-in-56-communities-in-virginia-west-virginia-maryland-and-pennsylvania-on-black-friday/

I'm also getting a strong LTE signal in Charles Town, and Ranson, WV. The signal was the best around the casino and Sheetz, at the Flowing Springs Rd./340 intersection.

 

Can we talk you into downloading the Sensorly app and then taking your phone a ride around Charles Town & Ranson. Take a look at the Sensorly web site. It does not show any Sprint LTE in your area. We need to fix that.

 

Thanks

I did it from work to home, if I have some free time tomorrow I'll drive around and see if I can map out some more.

Wilkes Barre is a Sprint corporate market, not Shentel.

 

ah thanks for clearing that up. im fairly new to the forum but a long time sprint user, and wasn't too sure.

Sprint Really Needs To Start Rolling Out More In California

Rolling out what?...... LTE?

 

:rolleyes:

 

Well.....(to put it kindly)..... if I thought Sprint was just "rolling out LTE", I'd be questioning their pace too.

Could you overhaul an engine in the time it takes to do an oil change?

When it comes to patience, some people are surely lacking. Network Vision switch for 3G was finally flipped in my neighborhood this morning. Dec 6th, will be my 16 year anniversary with Sprint too.

    • The Kendall/Kerr/Gillespie PCS swap is a very nice win-win for AT&T and T-Mobile. Means both of them will have a 20x20 PCS channel, though in exchange T-Mobile goes from 10x10 to 5x5 on one of their spectrum blocks. I figure AT&T will start running n2 DSS on that channel, as they have enough customers in those areas to need the capacity, while T-Mobile will probably just run B2 LTE, as once Auction 108 finally clears they'll have plenty of n41 to play with. Guessing we'll see the non-G-block 5x5 slice running n25, but it would get aggregated with n71 rather than n41 I figure as n71 will remain 20x20 there until the STA goes away (and maybe after that, as if T-Mobile gets 700 MHz as the result of VZW buying West Central Wireless's spectrum there's no reason to run LTE in 600). Which makes me think that the next move is T-Mobile trading 700A for the 5x5 of orphaned PCS (E block) to VZW once the WCW transaction closes, as that would give VZW 20x20 PCS in the area, and would give T-Mobile 700 MHz in an area where they have none. Then VZW can either trade 700B to T-Mobile as well in exchange for the AWS I block in those areas (gives T-Mobile 10x10 B12, gives VZW 15x15 B66) or they can cut a deal with AT&T to give AT&T 10x10 B12 (AT&T has the lower C block), but I'm not sure what that deal would be if trading like for like (vs. AT&T handing VZW their upper tiny slice of B5, giving VZW 15x15 to play with in that band post-WCW-acquisition). EDIT: Just looked at AWS spectrum again, and if AT&T would rather have 10x10 B12 than 2x 10x10 AWS, they could swap AWS-D for VZW's 700B block. That would give VZW 20x20 AWS, and would take AT&T down to 10x10 + 5x5...which they'd likely be fine with as they have 20x20 PCS, small cells in the busy areas, and as a result of the transaction three 10x10 chunks of spectrum in the area below 1 GHz. And if VZW traded 700A to T-Mobile for PCS-E VZW would have 20x20 PCS as well. Which is quite useful in an area that's macro-only for VZW and likely not dense enough for proper mobile usage of CBRS or C-Band (and an area where VZW doesn't even run DSS now).
    • Yeah, $250 credit for an S22 is awful. tbf last year they didn't have solid upgrade credits until mid-late April, which is when I paid $225 to swap my S21 for an S22. Happy to wait 'til then for that kind of deal, though I'll be annoyed at battery life in the mean time.
    • Miserable upgrade credits from Samsung this year unless you want to rely on carrier financing. Sticking with S22U for a while. 
    • So far we've documented close to 100 Sprint conversions in NYC with permits still rolling in and that's only what we've identified manually. Tons of sites get converted/updated without permits so there's potentially a lot more that we haven't spotted yet. There are also dozens of sites that are still broadcasting the keep PLMN, some have been decommissioned but historically the vast majority have been converted.
