the problem with sprint is they are to slow to build the new network vision,here in my area (Ct ) pre-launched lte in some cities since december 19/12 is over a year....to much time to roll out lte,also the areas are very spoty ,if when they oficial release the lte in my area hope to get a better coverage and more places and not only the spots sensorely show now...

The big problem right now in CT is not actually something Sprint has control over.

 

The cast majority of cell sites in CT have already been converted to Network Vision, however the internet companies contracted to provide the high speeds backhaul (fiber, microwave, etc.) have been very slow to deliver.

 

If a site doesn't have new equipment yet, it's generally a permitting issue with the local government. If it does have new equipment, but no LTE, it's waiting on backhaul.

Slow?  No.  Sprint is deploying LTE across its network faster than VZW, AT&T, and T-Mobile are doing so.

I love how they put one 4G site in the heart of the small town of Georgetown SC and mark it as a new LTE market lol.. Funny stuff...

 

I noticed that too.  When I saw it on the list, I thought, "Hey, I thought there was only one site with LTE active in Georgetown?"  Went to the NV map, and sure enough.  But I guess it covers 40% of the POPs.  I was quite surprised though.

That's almost as bad as Sprint pre-announcing Kingman & Lake Havasu almost a year before LTE finally started showing up! :rofl:

Yes. There are some LTE. But not continuous.

 

Which is why it has not been announced. Until the Backhaul (Fiber, Microwave, etc.) is available to more sites, LTE will continue to be sporadic. Unfortunately, that is not something Sprint has control of. It's the local ISPs that do that.

 

The announcement has nothing to do with where LTE will be available has more to do with where coverage already is than where it will be. Coverage will be the same the day before and the day after the announcement. All that changes is LTE is officially added to coverage maps, and you can open support tickets on LTE.

 

That's why we consider the announcements to be relatively unimportant, and are more worried about what sites are live, and what coverage shows on Sensorly. Obviously, DC still has a ways to go coverage wise. And Sprint wants to make sure you have a good experience before they make the official announcement.

I've always wanted to know what the story was with that.  Did the backhaul vendor mislabel the year in the anticipated delivery date?  :roflmao:

Just as funny is how small that city (town?) is.... Really worth an announcement? I guess at this pace sometime this year they can announce the 3,000 "market"...

It probably was counted because AT&T and/or Verizon did in their announcements.

I wish Dc could be launched so I could open a ticket for the stupid site serving my house. It's the only one in this area I can find with the eCSFB issue but they won't let me open a ticket until the market is launched. Anyway it's nice to hear some good news from Sprint

I feel for ya..

 

The site serving my house, and much of southern Springfield, MO is have the eCSFB issue. I used to get *some* LTE coverage in/around my house and the south side of town. Ever since that site came online, it kicks you off LTE most everywhere. And you can't open a ticket. That's one of the nice things about being in a launched market.

    • Well, I saw a good deal on a factory unlocked A32 5G on eBay and was able to convince the seller to show me the software info screen--and it was May.  So I jumped on it. Stuck one of my Tello SIMs in it, and while my Moto One 5G Ace would connect to n71 SA, this phone refuses to do so.  And with only 0 for the TA value, it's less useful for LTE than my older devices.  Oh, and the *#2263# menu doesn't work properly for NR.  So definitely glad I'm able to disable updates. - Trip
    • NextWave re-emerges with 2.5 GHz private network service  https://www.fiercewireless.com/private-wireless/nextwave-re-emerges-25-ghz-private-network-service https://www.nextwave5g.com/nextwave-news The only way for T-Mobile to get up to 190MHz now is to either buy out NextWave in it's entirety or wait until NextWave's lease is up and attempt to "outbid" them for the right to lease the spectrum from the Archdiocese.

    • Mike. I sent in more diags for wi-fi 6e yesterday where SCP shows channel = 0.  Thanks.
    • Added and modified them all! I took a trip through the L train tunnel between 1st Avenue and Bedford Avenue recently and found n41 live in the tunnel. It's 80 MHz, speeds were 250-300, and I didn't have time to check if n71 is there. Some stations speeds slow wayyyy down when a train pulls in now, even the ones with B2 at 15 or 20 MHz, so any upgrade is great sight to see.
