Network Vision/LTE - Delaware market (including Wilmington, Dover, Laurel and Elkton MD)

Recommended Posts

I started to realize that on the way home during the daylight.... it's as if 98% of the state is rural!

 

 

Interesting! So the existing structures are probably what Sprint was using back in the 2000s when it was adequate?

 

And wow, Smyrna is hurting, you aren't kidding. This is an interesting state to follow, I hope Sprint starts adding sites once the fervor of NV1.0 and 2.0 is over.

 

It is rural, yet it is not. It's strange, once I cross into Maryland it generally feels a lot more rural.

 

I assumed the network would have been planned in the late 1990s early 2000s (I'll admit I know almost nothing about Sprint's history in the area). There has been a lot of growth since then, most of it occurred from the late 90s to 2007.

Sprint isn't only putting fast wireless where it's "needed." Every site is eventually getting LTE, some sooner than others. They don't go by what areas need it the most, they light up LTE on any site that is ready at the time.
