Activity is well under way in the Gulf Coast market from vendor Ericsson.  GMO sites are nearly 100% complete, and full build sites are beginning now.  I am creating this thread as a placeholder for our members to discuss Sprint Network Vision deployment in the Gulf Coast market.

First LTE site accepted yesterday in the Gulf Coast market.  Just west of Moss Point/Pascagoula, Mississippi!  Will be uploaded to Sponsor maps in a few hours.

Heard any new updates for July?

 

Things are continuing to move, a couple of new 4G sites have popped up in the Gulf Coast market and you can see folks have found them and mapped them on Sensorly.com

thanks, I was trying to look for something like that last night but to no avail, lol

 

Looks like some spots in around Moss Point, MS, another near Foley, and some around Mobile atm.  I looked a little to the east and saw a spot for Tallahassee, FL (not Gulf Coast, heh)

 

They started on WiMax in Pensacola, but we were one of those last markets that they never finished, =^(

Clearwire never actually started WiMax deployment in Pensacola. They just came in and set up Protection Sites.

About 20 minutes ago 4G is on in Pensacola. Well where I live. Can't speak for the rest of the city.

 

Make sure to map your coverage with the Sensorly app! There are currently two sites active with LTE in the area, but more should come online and coverage will grow over the next couple months.

My father just got a SG4 phone at the Sprint store near Pensacola, FL and said they had 4G in the store area, but nothing on sensorly, yet.

Just thought I'd mention it and hoping to see more LTE in Pensacola spread!  =^)

Yea, I started mapping it today, at least I think I was doing it correctly...

 

Connect to 4G by cycling airplane mode if needed.  Then fire up Sensorly and hit map trip, then start.  Let it eat. 

 

You'll see on the details screen the points uploading periodically.  I just make sure they upload all after stopping the trip and closing.

I spent a day after New Year's in Orange Beach, AL.  Good 4G LTE coverage outside, but almost nonexistent 3G/4G penetration inside a normal Hilton Garden Inn room.  To make phone calls, I had to stay in the lobby by a window.

 

Unfortunately, the hotel WiFi was not robust enough for internet calling, so no alternative!  :(
