If I were calling the shots, i would have a version of this running in a loop at all Sprint retail locations so prospective customers could see the future unfold before them. As well as marketing this information so peeps could see Sprint is working at improving network issues instead of us hearing all the bad press in blogs and the media.

There is a little bit more updated from the investor meeting, but not much. I agree with you about developing something substantial for their customers and potential customers. And putting it on continuous loop in their retails stores would be a good move.

So what is going to happen to those of us that just bought a new phone and have no WiMax service? Are they going to keep charging us for the upgraded service $10 per phone per month that we cannot use?

I know it's unpopular, but Sprint has needed those $10 fees. It's still an unprofitable company. It's not as if those fees went to line the company with fat profits. In reality, Sprint needs to charge $15 or $20 fees. But it knows it would no longer be competitive.

This cannot happen soon enough. The amount of wireless data is DOUBLING every year. I think Sprint is spot-on to not only accelerate Network Vision but also to deploy femto units to address indoor coverage and offload traffic from the towers.

I have updated the link on the original post. I have added the PDF to be hosted here on our servers in case the original link ever went dead. Thanks!

How the heck do I upload attachments in a post? I don't know how to upload files into my library.

 

Only Premier Sponsors, S4GRU Writers, Moderators and Administrators can save files/pics to our servers. We are limited in the amount of server space we have, so we are chintzy in who gets to save files. You can use third party places to save attachments. Even Tapatalk and Forum Runner will allow you to save files to their servers to feature on S4GRU. Heck, I even sometimes will use Facebook and Google+ to host them, harvest the URL, and post here.

You can also use imgur.com and link the files. But even if you cannot afford Premier Sponsorship, donating a few bucks for regular Sponsorship to keep the lights on around here gives you access to a wealth of maps as well as sponsor-only chats.

Every link I have tried to post will not work because the link generated is session dependent. I have an email into PayPal asking them to provide me a link.

Isn't that link only for NonProfit Orgs? Not sure if S4GRU is a registered 501C3, although I could be wrong. I am very new around here after all.

 

oops... I guess I didn't pay attention. I want to donate but the only way I'm able to do so is via google checkout or something that accepts credit cards. PayPal screwed me over so I'm unable to use my card with them.

S4GRU is an unregistered not for profit site. It would be easier for us to become a commercial site than to register as a non-profit organization. It's not worth the bureaucratic red tape. Also, as a non-profit, some of our required filings would show source names. And I could never do that.

 

Since S4GRU is not a business with a profit incentive, and I'm just a guy, we will not be making this thing much more elaborate than it is now. I just don't have the resources.

 

But I thank you all who have contributed and would like to contribute. PayPal donations are what pays our costs and keeps the site live.

On page 16 on the PDF, there's a Venn diagram with LTE, WiMAX overlap. In the left one, the numbers work out but in the right one: it says 277M LTE but on the same page, it says 250M LTE; which is it?

 

Also, whichever number it is for final LTE coverage, is that coverage with or without 800MHz LTE meaning, will some of Sprints currently planned LTE pops only be covered with 800MHz and not PCS LTE?

I wouldn't read too much into the POPs covered. They were very early initial projections.

 

Additionally, there will not be any areas with only LTE 800 but no LTE 1900 within existing Sprint coverage areas. However, there is a chance that in new coverage areas, ala Montana, it is possible they may deploy LTE 800 and CDMA 800 only. However, if you have a fully functioning Network Vision site, the cost to add just CDMA and LTE 1900 is pretty negligible. So I would add them too.

So what's the new current projected POPs buildout for LTE? I keep reading from Sprint 250M, not 277M.

I don't know. It's not a metric I watch or care about. Sprint is building out and converting its entire network. I follow the progress of each individual site. I'm more interested in geographical coverage.

 

Who cares how many theoretical people the network covers? I'm only interested in one POP...me. Where does it cover the places I go? POPs is a number for bureaucrats and investors. It's pretty meaningless, IMHO.

    • Sounds like an awesome project—keep us posted on how it’s going! Also—if you’re able to figure out logging, I can work with you to get the data uploaded to SignalCheck. 
    • Yesterday, I saw a post on Facebook from an old friend about the Evolve III Maestro, a $60 laptop (at Micro Center) that apparently has an LTE modem in it.  Specifically, the Quectel EC25-AF*.  The nearest Micro Center was sold out of new ones, but offered open box at $48.  So for $51 after tax, I walked out this morning with one.  An absolute steal. I backed up the Windows product key and then put Kubuntu 22.04 on it.  I spent a lot of time today trying to get the build tools installed so I could get the wifi module installed and running, and once I did that, I pretty quickly got to sending it modem commands, which I've never done before.  I don't have a SIM in it yet, but it does seem to function as it should.  (I figured out the command to get Timing Advance values out of it, but without a SIM, I doubt it would have such values.) Now I'm trying to puzzle out how to write some kind of script or small program to use it for logging purposes.  I think I've worked out how to send commands to it from bash using socat, but I need to pick specific commands to run.  I'd actually like to replace some of my phones with this if I can get it to record cells, with GPS, and cycle through a set of bands repeatedly.  My current phone collection consists of 9 phones other than my main S21FE, and they require babysitting while I'm logging.  It'd be nice to pare that down to a more reasonable number and let the computer do the work, hopefully in the back seat with less babysitting. - Trip ===== * Per the spec sheet, it supports B2/4/5/12/13/14/66/71.  That'd cover all of Verizon and US Cellular LTE, all but B29/30 on AT&T, and all but B41 and Sprint Keep on B26 for T-Mobile. 
    • More bizarre.  I just updated my other Ace without issue. - Trip  
    • Looking over the data so far, bidders can go back and reopen bidding on licenses that appeared settled. In the list below, not all counties are listed and only states with excess demand.  Typically 3 licenses per county for rural areas and some urban areas. Here is how many licenses per state had demand greater than supply: State count AK 3 AL 14 AR 3 AS 6 AZ 9 CA 12 CO 76 DE 6 FL 10 GA 66 GU 3 HI 3 IA 99 ID 47 IL 39 IN 43 KS 231 KY 23 LA 14 MA 5 MD 16 ME 1 MI 86 MN 9 MO 79 MP 12 MS 73 MT 69 NC 26 ND 109 NE 18 NH 13 NJ 6 NM 51 NV 24 NY 13 OH 29 OK 9 OR 30 PA 24 PR 25 SC 20 SD 83 TN 76 TX 236 UT 49 VA 22 VT 5 WA 65 WI 59 WV 26 WY 29
    • Looks like Dish has already taken back the 5x5 of n71 they leased to T-Mobile, and instead of narrowing NR here T-Mobile has gone for broke and made 600 NR-only. They can afford to do that here thanks to B12, and don't need to do that west of here because they weren't leasing 600 from Dish. Does mean that Dish is 10x10 for n71 here (which explains the 30ish Mbps upload peak I saw yesterday). Darned speculators hogging the remainder of the band So T-Mobile is running 140 + 15x15 MHz sub-6 NR here. AT&T is 40 + 15-45x15-45 (15x15 n5, occasional 15x15 DSS on n2 and/or n66 though I haven't seen both in the same area). VZW is 60 + 15x15, with the latter being n2 DSS. Wonder how soon VZW will try n48.
