Sprint Tower maps


Recommended Posts

Forum Newbie, please be gentle.....

 

Is there a map that will list Sprint towers in a particular area?  I'd like to know where the towers in my area are, how to check them out, etc.  With Sprint sucking bad in my area, I'm contemplating leaving them.  But, if I can get an idea of where towers are, and find out what sort of upgrades if any have been done, I might find a way to convince myself to stay! (I'd almost hate to go back to Verizon!)

Thanks guys!

Let me be the first to say, Welcome to S4GRU. We do offer maps that show where sites are in your area as well as other maps that show the progress of Sprint Network Vision upgrades in your area. Those maps are available to sponsors of S4GRU. Browse around a little bit, check out the Sacramento Market thread and if you'd like more information and feel inclined to, make a donation and those additional maps and details will become available to you.

 

Again, :welcome:  to S4GRU.

Welcome to S4GRU! I just came to point you to our FAQ ( http://www.s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/1704-Frequently-Asked-Questions) which will also answer some of your questions. Please consider donating a few dollars towards keeping this site running and you'll get access to the awesome sponsor maps of every Sprint site in the country!

 

Sacramento is definitely not in the best place right now, but take it from someone in sf (the other most behind market on the west coast) things get much better.

Welcome.

 

As mentioned above, look at the FAQ and in my sig is the directory of maps. Some are accessible, while others are accessible only if you are a sponsor, 

 

Read, post and learn, but have fun doing it.

For what you get, the price of the maps is very cheap.  It's really cool to be able to watch progress happen almost live.

 

Also, it's an interesting study in network design, at least if you know the areas and their population densities.

Yep, that's the public site. Doesn't show every site. Just ones that have received some sort of enhancement in the past six months. And Sprint doesn't provide details.

 

S4GRU sponsor maps are color coded and show exactly what kind of 3G/4G upgrades have occurred, and data about each site. Like Site ID numbers, switch locations, markets, etc. Also, our maps get updated every couple of days and show exactly what changed from the last update. Best for tracking Network Vision/LTE deployment.

I agree the public site is VERY generic, and its map is blah at best lol.  I love how you have yours color coded and all, its been very helpful ever since I have been a member of your awesome site!

    • Interesting, T-Mobile is demolishing a Sprint B25-only site that even Sprint wasn't using anymore. Sprint moved from that pole to a former Clearwire site on a nearby much taller mast but never demolished this original site. Up through 2021, there was still power to this site. Some time during COVID, the lights on the RRUs were no longer lit.  https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/ENR24-01067/Kirkland Streetview 
    • I noticed that on my Boost line. I ended up mapping some 2G on Cellmapper because of that lol. Looked like it would connect to T-Mobile 2G for a bit and then disconnect and show no signal. Thankfully it's back up and running.
    • Outside expert explanations of AT&T outage: https://www.lightreading.com/mobile-core/at-t-s-outage-twists-up-its-mwc-story
    • Service just restored in Columbus Ohio on AT&T network.  They seemed to do it in the following order: business (done early) then 5g hours later then ADSL and 4g about 4 hours after business. Then texting and wifi calling that was not setup before. At one point they were trying to route calls on T-Mobile 2g, but that failed.
    • Nationwide AT&T outage occurring right now affecting all of their brands, MVNOs, and even FirstNet. Although this kind of outage is rare, I bet Verizon and T-Mobile are both gonna try to use this to pull First Responders to their network or at least consider them for backup services. https://www.theverge.com/2024/2/22/24079910/att-network-outage-sos-mode
