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.

    • No, what I did was out of the box I tried the Sprint set up assistant app and input my info in via app and then wifi. It wasn't working with my current cell phone so I tried it on another and it worked. I also have android.    Regarding the flashing, the same thing happens with me. I think it is not connected all the time. When I am on wifi, it stays green when I am close by, then when I turn off wifi, it flashes so the same thing. I have not had mine for very long, so I'm not sure if it takes time to calibrate itself. I also moved the GPS black box to a different location so it has a better GPS signal.   The green light indicates that it is working and periodically flashes so it is set up, but I just set up mine, so I'm not sure on the specific when it toggles, etc.
    • Your second paragraph confused me a bit.   Also, are you saying you ran the set up multiple times as in you factory reset it and tried again? Or just unplugged and plugged back in and it started working all of a sudden, I also still dont know how it functions. Are we supposed to always be on the wifi 5g that we select through the setup? Or after it goes solid green are we supposed to turn wifi off (The only way I get it to flash green is right after I turn wifi off...I get like 5 flashes of green and then back to solid)....but then eventually I lose a signal    
    • My T-Mobile S20+ finally got the May update about a week ago, but my AT&T S20 Ultra is still saying its up to date on the April update. I wonder if they're just going to skip the May patchs and just combine it all into the June update at this point. AT&T used to be super fast about pushing the monthly updates out with my S9+, I hope that's not changing.
    • The set up took several times and really was a hit or miss for me. I tried the wifi option and it kept timing out, however; when I unplugged the pebble then replugged it in, after the LED light sequence set up it was a solid green light then flashes when connected. I think that when inputting in the wifi info, it showed as timing out, but the info went through b/c I see that it flashes when I am near. The first time it happened I was a bit surprised and just gave up as it not working so I unplugged it then replugged it and the light was green.   My wifi router that connects into the cable is indoors, so that won't work for me. If you cannot use the antenna with the ethernet cord then don't use it b/c it will not work if it cannot lock a GPS signal according to the instructions.
    • I'm guessing that's the case. I spoke with 2 different reps on 2 different dates (both were clearly American) and both told me the launch date was June 12th. The second time I called I asked the guy "are you sure about the June 12th launch date and are you sure that it's the V60". He said yes I'm absolutely sure. He said they wouldn't know anything about pricing until June 12th but he was sure about the launch.
