Will all (or close to all) of Sprint's towers be putting out LTE?


Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I don't know if Sprint has already said something about this or not already, but I was wondering if Sprint aims to have all (or close to all) of their towers broadcasting some kind of LTE signal by the time they wrap up the NV deployment? Sorry if this has already been covered. :)

 

Thanks!

Yes, with very few exceptions, at least as far as Sprint legacy sites go; some, but by no means all, ex-Nextel and ex-Clearwire sites will also get LTE.

unfortunately .

Many were colocated with Sprint, so upgrading those would have been nothing but wasted resources. Many others are "redundant coverage", which is kind of a tossup, and usually leaned towards no. Others lie completely outside the Sprint coverage area, and again, it's a "cost:benefit" tossup. Frankly, I'm thankful that any Nextel sites are being upgraded at all. They could have just said "meh".

You have little to complain about.  Because of iPCS -- believe it or not -- northern Indiana has some of the most substantial rural coverage in the entire Sprint native footprint.

Yes, but it has still just become usable. Before NV, Indiana, particularly FW, was so slow you couldn't even load pandora. NV has fixed all that, thankfully.

I have little to complain about? lol well then maybe it's just my shitty luck that I have no in home coverage and that a Nextel tower got stripped of it's content last summer that is literally 100 ft, if that away.

If you have no in home coverage, perhaps Sprint was not the right choice for you?

Do you mean data or voice? There are solutions to both problems...
