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
  • Bullhead City, AZ
  • Kingman, AZ
  • Lake Havasu City, AZ
  • Yuba City, CA
  • Mattoon-Charleston, IL
  • Douglas, GA
  • Dublin, GA
  • Eatonton, GA
  • Paducah, KY
  • Natchitoches, LA
  • Portland, ME
  • Sanford, ME
  • Ann Arbor, MI
  • Cheboygan, MI
  • Detroit, MI

  • Oscoda, MI
  • Vicksburg, MS
  • Port Huron, MI
  • Wilmington, NC
  • Winston-Salem, NC
  • Lincoln, NE
  • Derry, NH
  • Dover, NH
  • Manchester, NH
  • Nashua, NH
  • Portsmouth, NH
  • Rochester, NH
  • Rochester, NY
  • Canton, OH
  • Dayton, OH
  • Mansfield, OH
  • Sandusky, OH
  • Youngstown, OH
  • Tahlequah, OK
  • Bellingham, WA
  • Silverdale, WA

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.

    • 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.
