New Sprint Network Vision deployment video

Recommended Posts

I wish they made more videos like this targeted at the average end user as well as biz customers

I actually think that this is a great advertisement. It explains things in easier terms that the everyday public could understand.

This is a very well informed video.  I wish they could shorten this up.. and put an alternative in as a commercial. The current commercial campaign they are running is forgettable. I miss the " This is what is happening on the NOW network" Ads.

Goal = 250 Million pops covered by mid 2014.

We should add this video to the "What is Network Vision" page.

Wow, that was really, really good.

 

I'm contemplating just inserting this into our store's demo loop on the TV, see if anyone notices.

That was an excellent video. That needs to go on sprints facebook page, twitter and every single social media site.

Nice video. Can't wait for those blistering LTE speeds and increased 3g speeds here in NOLA!

Digiblur,

You need to pack up and move to South Central Pennsylvania.   We have some Amish farms that need somebody to milk some cows.

The barns do have LTE & CDMA1X 800 so you will be better connected here than in NOLA. As you come north, you will pass Shentel's Headquarters. You probably should stop in and treat a couple of the employees to lunch.

It's cheaper to get a couple different SIMs and rock and roll with what is already rolled out here on B17 and B4 ;)

I liked the video. It was extremely clear and gave a nice ABC level explanation of Sprint's vision as we approach the end of the first phase of upgrades. I wish Sprint had better commercials. If more commercials were like this video and if they brought back the black and white Hesse videos, I would be happy. Hell, I'd take the old school commercials with "Murphy Brown" at this point.

I think Sprint really needs to revamp their marketing campaign once they reach that key 250 million pop number. With Network Vision nearing completion I definitely think they need to re-establish themselves in the market to change public perception of the company, which still is not very good. Most people have no idea what is going on within the NV program and a marketing campaign that features the kind of information shown in the above video will go along way in terms of convincing people that it is a reliable network built for the future.

I really liked the video too, my only curious thing is it never said anything about smaller towns and areas. Other than that it's a great video.

P.s. also seen it on tapatalk

These days I consistently get 3G speeds of 1Mbps or more, sometimes even 2+ Mbps. Coupled with low latency on eHRPD, I find it to be eminently usable for most purposes.

Most Sprint critics won't believe, or remember, but around 2007-2008, Sprint's EvDO network regularly beat out all three competitors. Back then, HSDPA wasn't a thing, so all GSM carriers had was EDGE.

It's good to see Sprint's 3G network back performing the way it should always have.

Yes I remember the "Sprint Speed" commercials back then when I was living in Cincinnati. It really was industry leading at the time and, yes, fast (relatively speaking).

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      Sprint announced the MVNO Google Fi will use its network for 5G in a press release (that is, once there are actually 5G capable phones compatible with Google Fi someday):
      https://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-to-provide-5g-wireless-services-for-google-fi.htm
       
      This is the first I've heard about Fi and 5G so far. Google has pretty much kept mum on the topic, so I'm somewhat encouraged.
