Howdy from ashland ky. My county is in eastern ky borders wva. We have sprint stores, wimax (protection site from what I gather), and sprint evdo. So my question is do I have to wait till sprint purchases clear to get lte because of the 2500mhz.? Or will sprint give lte on every sprint tower? Also why is my county white are we not a market? Thanks for any and all help.

Whoa, I thought this was going to be a racist thread! JK! Might want to think about those titles a little bit more haha. Anyway, Sprint will have NV on just about every tower. My guess is that the coverage in Ashland is provided by a partner carrier like Shentel, as in the East Kentucky map section there are no towers in Ashland and the closest one I found is near Wheelersburg, Ohio. Most likely the Sprint partner will deploy LTE in the near future. You should become a sponsor so you can view more maps!

Haha. Yeah that couldve been bad. Ok will donate soon and check it out. The wimax isnt bad at all get 8mbps down. Just wanted to see where my community stood. Will find out more after I donate. Thanks for the help and I will be more careful with my titles here on in. Lol

Ashland Kentucky is in a nTelos market, I believe. nTelos is not an affiliate of Sprint, but rather an independent company that sells Sprint native service in the area.

 

The nTelos network is not receiving Sprint Network Vision upgrades in the way Sprint corporate and affiliate markets are. nTelos is keeping it's 3G service as is, and will start adding a LTE layer for Sprint customers near the end of 2013 and into 2014.

 

We do not have much information about nTelos plans at this time. But their upgrades are not imminent.

Ok thanks Robert, makes sense lot of my friends have ntelos. I hope they get lte and sell it to sprint. I'm fine with WiMAX but that's going away too and I would like to have an up to date phone. Still rolloing with epic touch just for the WiMAX. I hope clear sticks around and doesn't move their protection site maybe that will give sprint a push to use their 2500mhz when sprint buys them.

WiMax isn't going anywhere until 2015 at the earliest. Now, they may change the protection site to LTE rather than WiMax, but that probably won't be happening any time soon either. So if WiMax is usable in your area, you could probably stick with it for another year or so.

Yeah I will. Only route i got really for 4g. Been with sprint about 11yrs not gonna change carriers now. AT&T and Verizon both have lte here. Ill just wait and see what nTelos does. Supposed to be rolling out 2md half this year hopefully they renew their agreement with sprint. Thanks for the help.
