Sprint Launches New LTE Cities and Spark Markets (2/24/2014)


Recommended Posts

A quick scan of the Sprint Coverage maps leads me to the conclusion that we are close to another LTE launch announcement! From what I have gleaned, it looks like we will have three new Spark markets and several new LTE launches! I'll update this post when I have a chance to look at the maps more closely.

 

For now what I've found:

 

New Spark Markets:

  • Salt Lake City, UT
  • Jacksonville, FL
  • Tacoma, WA

New LTE launches:

  • Conway, AR
  • Benson-Douglas-Sierra Vista-Warren, AZ

New LTE launches:

  • Detroit, MI
  • Dayton, OH (as well as several other regions of Ohio, outside of Cincinnati, Columbus, and Cleveland) 
  • Lincoln, NE
  • Kingman, AZ
  • Lake Havasu City, AZ
  • Bullhead City, AZ
  • Paducah, KY

 

 

Kingman, AZ and Lake Havasu City, AZ were pre-announced over a year ago by Sprint PR. I would sure hope they don't announce them again. They might confuse the general populous. Glad to see them on the official Sprint map though.

They will most certainly be announced again. They, along with many other cities were announced as "Coming Soon." All the others that were given that status were announced again when they finally launched.

Oh. I didn't realize that. :blush:

Rochester, NY appears to have made it this round...

 

Looks like Detroit will include (but they might separate them out as they have done before) Ann Arbor, Adrian, Port Huron, and Monroe.

Rochester, NY I would of thought MIGHT squeeze in there, Rochester has made huge progress this year. Syracuse right behind... We will see. Driving around where I live and around Monroe county, only few spots I fall back to 3G.

I had a feeling that Jacksonville would be launched really soon considering all of the TD-LTE equipment going up over the past several months.

Adrian and Monroe were previously launched, but I do expect them to announce Ann Arbor, Port Huron and Detroit separately.

Finally their launching Winston-Salem! :D

I remember a chat in the Lounge a few years ago when I told members that Winston-Salem was going to be a Round 4 market and that it would be one of the last Top 100 markets to launch.  One of our core members even left Sprint because of it.  It turned out to be one of the best deployment markets ever.  Once ALU finally showed up and started the market.

 

Although Round 4 markets have had to wait a long time.  Most of them have gone pretty well and fast.  Some even getting launched or nearing completion before their Round 3 or some Round 2 markets even.  Heck, there is even a Round 1 market not even launched, yet.

I can't even express how amazed I am at how quickly ALU upgraded Winston-Salem. All I remember is looking at the Network Vision/LTE Deployment running list, and one day the NV upgrade completion in Winston was a very low percentage, then one day you updated it and they were at 97% complete and I was just blown away. Of course that didn't happen over night, but the amount of work that was completed there in such a short amount of time is astonishing. It makes me look forward even more to attending High Point University in Fall of 2015. Not only will I be going to the greatest college I have ever seen, I will also have an amazing Sprint experience also!  :tu:

 

Not too shabby for a 4th round market!

Nothing. I thought it would be in this round. Not entirely sure what they're waiting on.

 

I've not visited DC in quite some time but from sensorly and other evidence (some only anecdotal) it would seem that significantly more than the requisite 40% pops are already covered. I wonder what the hold up in an official Sprint acknowledgment might be. Interesting.

    • Their offers have been crap recently, so this is just more evidence to not buy from T-Mobile. 
    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.  
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
