nybs31 Posted February 26, 2013 Share Posted February 26, 2013 Hello all. I am new to this site but have been lurking for awhile now. There is great information here! Let me get started on this situation that I am encountering as it is a long story. Hopefully someone here can help me. I live in south Mississippi. I work at NASA John C. Stennis Space Center located in south Mississippi. This space center is the 2nd largest NASA facility in the country. The biggest facility is Kennedy Space Center. Stennis Space Center is where all the rocket engines get tested that go into flight. Every space shuttle that has been into space has been tested at Stennis. I work in a data center called NCCIPS located on Stennis space center. It is the largest Department of Homeland Security (DHS) data center in the country. Every other carrier (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and even a local Mississippi cell phone company named CSpire Wireless) have service while on site of Stennis space center. Sprint is the only carrier to not have service while on site (roaming yes, but no Sprint service). There is a Nextel antenna located on site which I found through this website http://www.antennase...est=pagehandler (this link provides the location of the antenna. Antenna is on the red tower in the middle). I have contacted Sprint about this issue. I have been speaking with Terrence Morgan with the Executive Services Department of Sprint. We have been back and forth with this situation since November of last year. The last thing he told me this week was Sprint is going to decommission this antenna as per the Nextel discontinue plans and has no plans of putting a CDMA antenna in it's place. He says he knows no further information. He refuses to give me the contact information of someone who can tell me why Sprint has made this decision and will not contact that person/department and tell them all the information I have posted here. There are many people who work at the data center who have Sprint. I am sure there are hundreds more who work on site of Stennis. I am stuck at a dead end. I am not even asking for 4g service, just Sprint service without roaming, I really do like Sprint and would like to remain a customer. My next option I was thinking of creating a petition on change.org and sending the petition link to everyone on Stennis space center and ask them to sign it if they have Sprint service. Then who or what department would I send the petition to? Do any of you know what action I should take next or who I need to contact at Sprint to get service at Stennis? Sorry for the long post, but it seems like a no-brainer for Sprint to get coverage at Stennis. I thank you all for reading and hopefully pointing me in the right direction. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
