You can take Eunice, LA off the list.  That city has one site (southeast of the city) that is still NV 3G only.  It's the last site before roaming when traveling from south to north and from east to west through that city.  The cover map shows fringe LTE coverage near the city from the two adjacent sites in Church Point and Lawtell but that's due to the error/exaggeration in Sprint's LTE layer.

 

EDIT: Then for some reason they didn't put Opelousas on their map when in fact that site (only one in the city) has had LTE since 9/11/2013.  Maybe a CSFB thing since it's just 4G only and not 3G/4G.

Dang. I didn't zoom in enough.

Sorry, Oct 29th (http://newsroom.sprint.com/news-releases/sprint-expands-lte-coverage-map-and-turns-on-more-4g-lte-markets.htm)  So a month and a half, if you want to get technical.

A month, a month and a half, it's all the same thing :P

Are we really stressing over an "official" announcement differing by 15 (ish) days.  I mean, really?  What..do you think deployment stopped during that time and just suddenly was all completed overnight for the announcement?  LOL....ok..sure.

Good, then.  Because we all know from the wealth of knowledge available here at s4gru where all the latest accepted towers are located, months before the general public.  With that in mind the "launches," regardless of the timing of PR newsblasts,  are moot.

They put up a few LTE towers in St.Thomas. Two I know for sure. Still 3g some parts of island. My house north side for one.

There are 3 towers that have LTE on st thomas and st croix as of right now.  Not sure what's the status on the remaining 5 towers on St. thomas, the remaining 2 on st croix and the 1 on st john.  But I have seen work being done on some of the other towers that doesn't have lte so hopefully the remaining towers will come online soon.

Hi, I have been digging around the site off and on over the last few weeks since seeing it mentioned in Digiblur's XDA PRL thread hoping to find mention of 4g LTE rollout for Roanoke, VA 24012. Anyone have any info or able to direct me to an appropriate thread to monitor.

Thanks in advance.

    • T-Mobile wins more 5G spectrum over AT&T's objections So now it's official?
    • Just got back from Puerto Rico. I spent a lot of time going around the San Juan metro area, predominantly in Viejo San Juan, Santurce, Isla Verde, and a short stop in University Gardens.  T-Mobile's network still performs as well today as it did when I last tested and in my opinion is the best on the island. n41 is still at 100MHz in most areas though I did record a few areas with only 80MHz. Yesterday the FCC announced that they're finally granting T-Mobile their Auction 108 winnings so we'll probably finally see that increase. They also have 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz n71. The fastest speed I recorded while there was 922 down and 120 up, presumably aggregating n41+n25 and potentially n71 as well but I wasn't able to confirm that. A couple of things I noticed about their network are that their is a ton of split-sector n25 deployed in San Juan, much like in the U.S. I even noticed some n41 sites that had 4 or more sectors. The weirdest being the site on top of SJU Airport where they have 6 n41 sectors each broadcasting 80MHz of n41. AT&T SIMs roam on LIberty's network but they still treat it as the home network. In my opinion they're the second best network in Puerto Rico. Liberty is still using the AT&T MCC-MNC code and is pretty much coasting on AT&T's network upgrades. They have 10MHz n5 virtually everywhere but I never saw my phone connect to any other 5G bands. Their saving grace was just how much spectrum they have to aggregate across midband and lowband. I'd see combos like 10MHz n5 + 20MHz B2 + 10MHz B66 + 10MHz Band 30 + 5MHz Band 2 and get upwards of 200Mbps. Coverage was slightly worse than T-Mobile in my experience, even indoors which is a surprise given T-Mobile usually struggles a bit indoors due to their macro density. Verizon is roaming on Claro in Puerto Rico just as they have been for years. No idea if there is 5G roaming because I was connected to LTE the entire time. Toggling 5G didn't do anything and both pings and speeds weren't great. Speeds were in the 20-40Mbps range consistently and pings over 200ms. For comparison T-Mobile's pings are in the teens and Liberty pings are in the 40's even when roaming using an AT&T SIM. Claro's network is ok in my experience with nothing really notable about it.  — — — — — Here are some pics of sites that I took:
    • WTB instructed to process all 2.5GHz licenses across the USA. They are only giving up some spectrum in certain markets of Hawaii.
    • Is this just for licenses in Hawaii?
    • Yeah, it basically directs the bureau to proceed with granting the applications in the normal course.  It's no longer being held by the AT&T objection. - Trip
