Comments related to the NV Running List Thread


Recommended Posts

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!!!

Stay tuned. We're announcing another NV city late tonight!

 

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.

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!

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.

    • ...and I just this morning realized you meant Cumberland, MD.  It threw me because there's an Ashby in Cumberland County, VA, which I'm far more familiar with. - Trip
    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
