So great to see another city added. Is it just coincidence that it looks like Sprint is following at&t's lte roadmap?

You know, I hadn't given that much thought. But I do see some correlations now that you mention it.

Cannot wait to see what you found out.

 

Hey, when Sprint says that Dallas is on the list, does that include the whole Metroplex including Fort Worrh?

I'm not 100% certain. I hope to get NV deployment information for all markets, like we received for Chicago.

 

That being said, the Dallas market for Sprint is actually called the DFW market. And given that the Sprint Chicago market's NV conversion included every single site in the market, I am assuming the same is true for all Sprint markets. Even the DFW Sprint market.

 

Although I cannot say with absolute certainty that Ft. Worth is included in the Sprint NV Deployment for Dallas, I would be willing to put a lot of money down on a bet if Vegas Casinos were putting odds on it!!!

I understand Sprint focusing on the large markets to get the most population covered the quickest. And while not looking for leaks, does it look like any medium small markets are on your list at all? Or is 2012 going to be a big city only year?

Forget Vegas casinos, Pahrump needs more money, so bet in our casinos. Haha.

I can hardly wait to hear the next on the list.

There are going to be many secondary, tertiary and rural communities that deployment will start in 2012. Sprint has their native coverage area broken into 97 markets. Each market covers a geographic area.

 

The Chicago Sprint market goes from Downtown Chicago, north to the Wisconsin border, west to only 30 miles short of the Iowa border, south to Kankakee and east to Michigan City, Indiana. There are more than a million people in this market outside of Chicago and its suburbs. This is going to repeated in every one of the 97 markets, lots of peripheral communities will be brought into the fold.

 

But even beyond these peripheral communities of large primary cities. There are some secondary markets that will include 2012 deployment starts. I will say that the ones that will start before mid year are mostly mega markets, though.

Thanks for the info. I guess I still living in the past and thinking like the old wimax rollout. Where a city was just that. Basically just the downtown locations.

 

Need to get my mind in the "area" mode, intstead of the old "location" mode.

Network Vision deployment will be very different than WiMax deployment. WiMax was by Clearwire, and they didn't care at all about Sprint's markets. And they never had any intention of going live on every single tower the way Sprint is doing with Network Vision.

 

Clearwire had to do their own tower spacing and set up their own sites because of the propagation differences between 2500 and 1900. So, their footprint ended up being completely independent of Sprint's coverage. So they pretty much completely did their own thing. And then that got even more chaotic with the WiMax Protection Sites. It seemed virtually no thought was given to where those things went.

The NV image of the overlap between WiMax and LTE scares me. It looks like not that many people living in WiMax areas will get LTE at first, and I live in one of those areas. Ahhh

Loving the updates.

 

just to be sure im on same page though here. When you list them under "Deployment Underway" that would mean they are actually working on it already or it could just start anytime before mid year? I ask b/c of the last one "D.C." as in the article you listed it as starting before mid year, yet listed it in "Deployment Underway" instead of with Boston in "Deployment to Begin in 2012."

 

just wondering the criteria or if i missed something.

 

im not meaning to be nitpicky here btw. love the stuff!!

Sarge...Good catch. I updated the post late last night. DC should be down with Boston. I will make the correction. Thanks!

Are we getting another release tonight? *fingers crossed*

 

Would be nice. I would really like to hear about some non-wimax areas getting LTE this year.

Yes. We are doing another release tonight. I'm at a concert. But my wife is driving home and I will grab my tablet and do a live chat from I-25 on the way home. Stay tuned. Should be around 10:30 pm MST.

    • Sprint can't afford to go private, they can't afford to buy back shares from stockholders, going private won't happen.  Either the merger will pass (60/40 chance at this point), if not Son will find a buyer for Sprint and take a loss (hello WeWork) and as a trader the way Sprint's shares are trading its almost as if market makers are already pricing in a merger failure.  Sprint would have to do some serious trimming off its balance sheet, sale portions of its network and subs, or even file Chapter 11.  I don't really see Sprint filing bankruptcy I've seen companies with worse earnings and survive.  Son just wants out of the U.S. wireless market and merging with T-Mobile is the fastest way to do so all while pitching this "5G for all" bs <--- I don't even have faith in T-Mobile post merger if it happens.  Sprint needs someone with deep pockets like Altice or another large cable company (and most certainly not Dish). 
    • Yes, some of you disagree with me.  That's to be expected.  Sprint sucks in some places.  But Sprint is not only great in my area, but they're actually the best.  And in most metro areas, they are perfectly usable.  But guess what?  T-mobile sucks in many places.  And I can tell you here in their home market, they're the worst carrier.  Verizon also stinks in places too.  I suppose if I lived in a crappy Sprint market, I'd go.  But I can tell you I see more and more people who leave Sprint and either come back or even if they don't, admit that the network wasn't as bad as they thought and there was a complete over dramatization in the disparity in networks.  Everybody's gotta do what's best for themselves.  And if leaving Sprint is best for you, I certainly wouldn't hold it against anyone.  I've seen many go over the years.  And I still sit here plugging away behind the keyboard.  But the one thing that won't continue is the overly negative drumbeat that's happening in this thread.  You all are starting to build off each other's negativity, causing the conversation to become one sided and pointless.  Don't want to hear ad infinitum the same droll negative grumblings.  Especially the same 'ol criticisms and Sprint can't be trusted.  Frankly, the drama is not true.  Sprint took longer, yes, but it did upgrade its network, and the performance is better.  And on the whole, it's better than its ever been.  So it cannot be said Sprint didn't do it.  They did. So let's stick to the thread discussion, which is the merger.  Not on the network performance on Lower Botswana Avenue and your thoughts on changing networks because of your block. Robert 
    • Boost founder has already said he would pay $2b for the brand back. 
    • Hi, Robert While I see your points, I respectfully disagree with some of them.  Properly managed, Sprint does have the resources to compete successfully.  But the key phrase is "properly managed", and that's where Sprint has shown critical weakness time and time again. Since Dan Hesse was screwed over in the Metro PCS debacle, and then dumped after Softbank took over, Sprint hasn't shown any signs of intelligent strategic management.  Tactically, they have tried hard to succeed, and have kept up with technology, and have tried to keep up with deployments.  But Softbank's refusal to provide capital (either directly or through 3rd parties), Claure's ham-handed cost cutting,  and Masa's tunnel-vision focus on merger have all combined to put Sprint in a desperate situation. So I agree with you that Sprint could compete in the future, but I think it is unrealistic to expect Masayoshi and Softbank to actually try to compete.  If the merger fails, I think that it is far more likely that Masa will basically dump Sprint just like he dumped Hesse, and loyal Sprint employees and the few remaining independent stockholders will be left swinging in the wind.  Sprint customers (I've been with Sprint for 20+ years) will also be hung out to dry.  I hope that I am wrong.  Actually, I hope the merger goes through, but if it doesn't, then I hope that I am wrong.  But I'm not counting on it.
