Has anyone seen a Sprint LTE commercial?

Nope.  Sprint's only focusing on their value proposition with the Framily plans right now.  I imagine that you won't see any commercials pushing the network for a while yet.  In the second half of the year we might start to see some.

Was he asking if we have seen the one that "exists" or if we have "seen" one as in does one exist yet?

 

I took it as the latter.  I don't believe a sprint LTE commercial exists yet.  Sprint isn't comfortable with the build-out of the network to put them out yet.  I think they've said that in the second half of the year we may finally start to see some.

And---the big two are killing Sprint with commercials every half hour on the channels I watch. And -- both of the commercials from the other two are excellent.  They are killing Sprint for sure. The other two sure know how to market their product and they are just flooding the TV with them.  I can see how the average person is going to be swaying into switching to one of the other big boys.

It is insane how the big two have it together and have the budget to do what they want. I NEVER see the Sprint name but I sure see the other ones.

I've seen the sprint name maybe once or twice over a youtube video with a little framily pop up. Other than that, nothing else. Sprint has the cash to do advertisements, I just don't think Masa Son is ready to promote a network he knows is clearly not ready yet.

Now just get tired tmobile verizon and att bragging about there lte and sprint not peep. See sign all over place too.

Same. But in this current position, Sprint would brag about LTE speed and coverage and not be able to back it up. Too many coverage holes, b26 still isn't a plague yet and spreading quickly, and b41 is not prevalent enough either. 

 

I hope Masa is banging on the table with his fist like he did to the Prime Minister!

For Sprint to go national on LTE at this point would be a mistake.  However they could go into each NV completed market, especially spark markets.  But that would also leak to uncompleted markets.  Sprint will be in a much stronger position once b26 LTE is more prevalent, as users complaints will dramatically decrease because of better coverage.

well I work at target and I saw they snuck in a sprint advertisement ,on our TV wall, maybe 15 seconds, and it runs all day. Cheap and easy advertising.

Well, take this with a bucket of salt, but some (notoriously unreliable) people gossiping to me said that we may have a Sprint Network ad airing soon.

Sprint has been touting it's new network here in Chicago for about 6 months now. There's been tv commercials showing fast things like missiles and airplanes, and billboards everywhere with "10x the speeds, 10x the coverage." There are still billboards and posters on almost every corner and bus stop with their new marketing slogan of "a new network for..." with a variety of Chicago-specific things that really make no sense. "A new network for...not putting ketchup on a hotdog, photographing the first pothole of spring, for directions to anywhere but downtown, avoiding the next snowmageddon, etc."

A national LTE marketing campaign would be foolish, and anger many people in areas that are still transition. However, advertising in mostly completed metro areas would be good for holding onto customers.

    • Just figured out this is a waste of time. US Mobile and Verizon lock the eSim to the emei while T-Mobile only uses it to see that you have a capable phone, like Red Pocket does with physical sims (although RP does keep track of what phone you are using it on with the emei.)  So @Trip was right in this case on liking physical sims.
    • Verizon has a reputation for being frugal with MVNOs. After looking around, I also decided US Mobile was my best option. People have gotten C band on it.  Hoping for esim for my S21 Ultra.  No luck so far.  Red Pocket does not claim Verizon 5g, although they say Soon!(TM).  I do see some 5g with it. Typically MVNOs are deprioritized, thus I am reluctant to claim truly getting top speeds with one.
    • Did some exploring yesterday/last night and didn't find a shred of C-Band, including with my brand new US Mobile SIM. Did find 4CA CBRS but the site seemed backhaul constrained; both that plus 15x15 B2 and band-locked 2/66 got me 190 Mbps or so.
    • Did some more exploring yesterday/last night and I think I spotted some LAA downtown but didn't get a chance to confirm before it went away in favor of mmW, which also went away pretty quickly. Also saw another n66 site, as well as an n2 site, making AT&T the second carrier to run n2 DSS within a few miles of me. I think at this point they won't be able to advertise anything flashy, but due to the sheer amount of CA they're throwing at customers here they can keep their network at 50+ Mbps until they can deploy both 3.45 and 3.7, and that's probably enough.
