Albuquerque on the list? Let's just hope they say Albuquerque and no El Paso.

The Albuquerque market is involved, which covers all of New Mexico and El Paso. I'm guessing they will be launching El Paso, and nothing that is actually in New Mexico or Albuquerque.

Not the city of Baltimore. The Baltimore market. The city is in the market, but the market includes Baltimore and its surrounding cities and towns.

I probably should have included this for reference, to show what these markets consist of. They are much larger than one city or even metro area.

I would say that's a pretty good bet.

Expect multiple cities across the Mississippi Gulf Coast to launch.  Picayune, MS will probably be on the list too.

I don't know if I understand this...  So expect the colored areas on the map to be announced or the list? The list shows DFW, and I thought they already announced DFW.

The map is to explain what regions are in which market. The list only contains MARKETS that are involved in the launch but does not necessarily mean that the market will launch but certain cities(that we do not yet know) will launch within those markets.

^^ This. 

 

The list is of markets where individual cities will be launched. Unfortunately, Sprint marketing (to keep up with Verizon and AT&T) has confused the term "market." We use "market" to denote the Sprint markets as defined in the map above. Sprint uses the term "market" to refer to each individual city they launch with LTE.

 

So, within the Sprint Markets listed in the original post, there will be a few new CITIES launched with LTE.

Most likely to launch before Sprint report their 3rd quarter earnings which is scheduled for 10/30/13.

That would make sense. I was hoping for sooner than later, it's been quite some time since their last announcement, and the LTE footprint has grown quite a bit since then.

I think I get what you mean, but I'm still confused because I thought Sprint officially launched the market and city of Boston in January.. https://community.sprint.com/baw/community/buzzaboutwireless/network-and-coverage/blog/2013/01/28/sprint-brings-4g-lte-to-boston-austin-and-growing-number-of-cities-in-2013

 

Not that it matters, I know the announcement itself is just a marketing/PR thing, the network itself has been chugging along for months.. just curious.

The Boston market covers the whole state of Massachusetts, there are still spots in the state that haven't been launched yet.

Not really related to the post but it's interesting the "Shentel" market didn't make the map. We're just a white spot with no label even though Shentel really has done a great job with upgrading most of their towers to LTE and 1x800. I'm guessing the map came from Sprint so I'm curious as to why that market was left off of it.

Shentel is an affiliate and not a sprint corporate market. They manage their own network and operations which is completely separate from Sprint corporate.

I knew they were an affiliate but that makes sense.

I hope that by launching 4g in a market, the rate of NV acceptances won't drop dramatically like it did in other launched markets. I would imagine that would happen less since we are in the final push to complete NV 1.0

Most, not all though, continue to see acceptances at a pretty good rate after launch. In some cases it seems slower because the market has filled out enough that the new additions are less noticeable. In others, there was a larger push right before launch so when it goes back to normal, it seems like a big fall off.

Sprint does announce when Shentel launches new areas, but we generally don't know about it before hand because as mentioned, they are an affiliate so the information is handled a different way.

And they made the best roast chickens...... (Boston Market)

Thanks for the teaser Dkoellerwx!  Excited to see which Milwaukee Market cities make it!
