So let me get this straight... Sprint still hasn't finished even one city completely 100% since starting last summer?? So I'm assuming that "largely completed by the end of 2013" means that it will be maybe 50% complete in most markets? #OHCOMEON

Did you know that neither Verizon, nor AT&T, nor T-Mobile have a market with 100% conversion to LTE yet? Oh, come on!!!

 

You aren't understanding the metrics here.

I still think the old wimax system, where you had a voice bar AND an additional 4G bar was the best thing ever,

 

^this a hundred times

I'll be "running the numbers" for a Running List update sometime later today. I don't think I'll see a 100% complete market, but there are some markets that are ridiculously close. Which, remember, means LTE on EVERY site. Neither AT&T nor Verizon are doing that with their 700MHz network. Nor is T-Mobile, if you look at the size of a "market" in Sprint terms (including rural areas as well as urban).

Robert,

Just wondering how often the running list gets a total update, is there a set schedule or just whenever sprint makes enough progress to note.

We try to do it 2-3x per month.

As an example, T-Mobile launches markets for LTE when 70% of sites are upgraded (and they're upgraded at the same time that PCS HSPA+ radios are added). Their network is closest to Sprint's in that, nationwide, they have PCS-ish spacing and are doing a network overhaul on every site (in urban areas). But, again, the number is 70%, not 100%. And there's a distinct difference in coverage when every third site doesn't have a tech enabled.

 

Oh, and for refarmed PCS to launch in a market, the threshold was even lower, from what I understand.

 

On an unrelated side note, T-Mobile shares a few sites with Clearwire around here. Hence "PCS-ish" spacing rather than straight-up PCS spacing.

Also, T-Mobile already has enhanced backhaul (i.e. Fiber or AAV) for their HSPA+ AWS network, they don't need to wait for that to be installed.

I like the new format of the NV Running list thread especially the extra entry about percentage of LTE sites accepted out of the percentage of NV sites accepted. 

 

Hopefully the remaining 2nd round markets get complete.

I also like the new format, but with one reservation: The old format offered an instant link (via "Sites Complete") to the NV Sites Complete map.  Robert, could you add that link within the new format?

 

Thanks for considering.

Is Sprint planning to put LTE on every site?

Yes except for a hundred or so sites where they can't negotiate backhaul or other things for a reasonable price. They'll probably relocate these sites to somewhere more favorable or it'll just stay as is.

I will add this to my To Do List. I didn't think anyone used that feature. Sorry that I removed it.

I'm surprised they haven't announced the sf bay having LTE yet, I'm getting LTE over 70% of the time traveling around the bay

Thanks as always for your efforts! 

 

Off topic: How do you like Tapatalk 4? I kind of love it, personally.

Remember that a "Launch" really is nothing substantial here. I do agree it helps with reputation as well as show competition with the big 2. I just don't hold much clout to launches.  We already know that acceptances are the key

Interesting new format. I guess due to character limits?

 

The lack of edit marks on the old posts had me super confused.

 

Absolutely love that LTE completion ahs been given its own line

It means that GMO sites are completing in the market and full build sites are beginning. http://s4gru.com/index.php?/blog/1/entry-340-sprint-deploys-special-ground-mount-option-network-vision-sites-in-some-low-capacity-and-high-engineering-locations/

 

The Sprint Rochester market is in Western New York. All other Rochesters are in other markets.

Thank you so does the full build mean new back haul and panels. Sorry I'm just wondering and thanks for the reply

Yes. Full build means new cabinets, panels/antennas and backhaul. This is a complete overhaul of the cell site.

    • 600 repack is reported as finished. https://twitter.com/AjitPaiFCC/status/1282720582447124482?s=19
    • I just got that same email for my Magic box that has been on Ethernet backhaul for 9+ months (I checked and the serial number matched that unit). It was still on Ethernet when I got the email, since I speed tested faster than Sprint's nearby macros (they're fairly congested even on B41). So they're just blanket sending it out to everyone, even people who are already off of LTE backhaul.      
    • T-Mobile must've heard my complaints about n41 because I ran into it a bunch of times today in Manhattan and in Brooklyn. I've also seen a bunch of sites that have n41 panels installed but that aren't active. A few of the sites with inactive n41 also have those new Ericsson AIR 3446 antennas that support mid-band FDD 5GNR. Fun fact for people wanting to test n41. If you're on the Prospect Expressway in Brooklyn, there is a site that is eye-level with the highway that has n41. Here is a speed test from it and take a look at that signal strength and upload!
    • Yep and even buy dishes AWS spectrum. SoftBank has the money for all that Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • I 100% agree. Everything this man had invested in had gone to shit and the. Looks to sell off shares. At this point I believe he doesn’t know what he’s doing. What Sprint really needed was someone who actually cared Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
