from 3/11 overnight.  No changes detected in Ohio. Check areas you know to see if any areas have been launched.http://coverage.sprint.com/IMPACT.jsp?INTNAV=SJS:HE:Cov

The DC/RVA area is still purple. I am surprised they aren't at least launching some of the DMV exurbs.

Our Dept of Motor Vehicle offices in South Dakota are kind of small. Our DMV's don't even have suburbs, let alone exurbs!!

 

:P

I've always wished they would fix their LTE layer calculations...the exaggeration is just so bad.

Totally agree with you according to their map I should have excellent LTE coverage at my house, instead of have none, but that is what WiFi is for.  ;)

All the carriers maps are horrible, Sprint is a little more accurate then At&t, and T is 2nd to last, Big V is the absolute worse in my opinion at least with A,S, & T you CAN zoom into neighborhood level to at LEAST get a GENERAL idea of coverage. Big V alls they care to show you is yup your covered, just like those stupid "reality check" INACCURATE maps they pull all the time.  Again this is just MY OPINION. :)

I long for the Sprint coverage map to resemble a cross between the C-Spire map (and some of its cool features) and the old Clear map.

The C-Spire map is great. That, plus tower locations, would be killer.

I liked the old Clear maps too BUT they ONLY wanted you to see the "market launched" tower locations only which until I came onto here it frankly sucked (just being honest).  There were times I went into a Clear 4G area but it was an area that was not an offical launch, so I had no idea where the tower/antennas were.

Sprint's voice map is pretty close for my area. Now if only they can get that guy to do the LTE layer for the map.

I agree!  Thats why I rated them how I did S,A,T&V. I would of put them S,T,A &V (best to worst maps) but T-mobiles new "pink" awful map is HORRIBLE! There old maps were so much better.

If sprint has the best map of the 4 then American carriers are some big ass liars

Even looking at an 800 LTE (band 26) run I made, the map shows LTE service continuing for another 1.5 miles in very hilly terrain.

How are they going to update these maps for 800 MHz? I just switched from a iPhone 5s to 5 on the map and it showed no difference in coverage. When I know in fact, when LTE 800 is launched here it will be a considerable difference between the 2 phones.

 

Edit: I realize my market does not have 80 LTE yet. I assume that the coverage maps "Calculate" for 800 LTE?

Yea I also think that they shouldn't be showing coverage for 800cdma and 800let on the coverage maps when I for once have never picked up either. Which they probably think that they will have a good percentage of both deployed by year ends time from what I understand besides ibez. Just my opinion which I'm not premier sponsor but they better start having some massive updates to hit their goal by years end. I really hope they do or I would be happy with a lte roaming agreement with bluegrass celluar cause they have great coverage pretty much everywhere sprint doesn't.

Spark Turbo by my house? I'm lucky to get a usable LTE signal on Band 25 if I'm indoors. Once I get the mythical Spark update on my N5 I'll walk around the neighborhood and see...

same here

Sprint's map shows a pocket of off-network roaming around my mom & dad's house 2 hours south of here, and yet 'fair' 4G LTE coverage most of the way around that pocket.

 

The biggest problem with this is the fact that the closest Sprint tower at all is a good 5-6 miles away in north Alabama as the crow flies, and even if the tower has very recently been LTE updated and the acceptance just hasn't made it to Robert yet, I can guarantee you there's no way LTE signal would make it up there much less even further north of it, because I constantly am flipping between the faintest of Sprint 3G data signals (even after being NV 3G complete) and roaming on Verizon at mom & dad's, and even a little over a mile back on the main highway (mom & dad's place is a little over a mile down a state road east of the main 4-lane), I can barely hold onto a Sprint 3G data connection there either.

 

Honestly, I don't know why anyone would bother wasting time with the Sprint map assuming they have any knowledge of Sensorly.com to begin with.

    • Went to Rolling Loud NYC at Citi Field this weekend. Over 60,000 people in attendance. Verizon is a sponsor of the festival this year so naturally they had a ton of COWs set up at the festival. I counted at least 4. As a result, they were virtually the only carrier consistently able to provide a data connection. I didn't see any Verizon 5G, only LTE. T-Mobile on the other hand was a very interesting experience. I was seeing an eNB 331804 which I'm 99% sure is a COW. They also seems to be doing some sort of traffic management because I noticed that if I left my phone idle in my pocket, it would drop down to No Service/SOS or sometimes it would sit on EDGE. But the second that I needed to send a text, make a call, or even use Twitter my phone would switch over to LTE or 5G to complete the task. In an active data session, my phone would constantly flip between Band 2, Band 66, and Band 41. Sometimes, I'd catch myself on the COW and other times I'd get pushed over to eNB 875868, the relatively new Sprint conversion nearby. The network moved at a snails pace though. Where Verizon took about 15 seconds to load Twitter or send a pic, T-Mobile could take up to a minute to complete the same task. Here's some photos of the COWs I spotted. I think that the first two are Verizon and the one in the distance in the third pic is T-Mobile's single COW, not nearly enough for an event that size.

    • You need to have Wi-Fi Calling enabled and also have made at least one phone call over Wi-Fi Calling prior to using the inflight Wi-Fi.
