Spark is getting closer and closer to me! Which means further and further away from Baltimore!

 

Also, the Sprint Zone app for iphone was updated yesterday. You can now report network issues via the app.

For my area Cecil county Maryland this map is a total lie. If 5% is covered that would be alot.

Yeah...I live in Harford County. We have had rock solid LTE all over Bel Air for well over a year now. But drive north on 95 and nothing.

didnt notice anything different in my area, and we all know how bad sprint maps exaggerate the lte coverage. ..

Funny thing is we have had lte, bands 25 and 26 so I guess that would be spark, on the south side of town since May.  Still doesn't show on the map.

Let's not call it a lie. That's very harsh. It's more like, "So far from the truth, that it cannot be relied upon or believed in any fashion whatsoever."

 

Maybe make that an acronym? SFTTTICBRUOBIAFW.

 

Well, that's wonky. OK, how about 'not very representative of reality.' NVRR. As in never! NeVeRR!!!

 

Maybe lie isn't so bad after all? :)

I noticed that the Sprint coverage map is a little too optimistic compared to actual real world performance. Places that they state that are covered by LTE actually has no LTE signal in reality.

Sprint and AT&T LTE coverage maps are just plain awful and unrealistic. They way overstate LTE coverage. Tmo is OK if you just use the darkest two colors and ignore the light colors. VZW dark red is pretty accurate outdoors. But their lighter red (Extended LTE) is also overstative, even outdoors.

the lte maps might reflect the cdma 800 :lol:

Of course, because that makes a lot of sense!

 

I looked at the map of a friend's house who can hardly make a call without his Airave. It says "fair" voice coverage but LTE is "best". He definitely cannot get LTE there.

The one area that Sprint understates on these maps is "new" LTE coverage in unlaunched markets - both Columbus and Cincinnati have extensive LTE coverage which is not shown on these maps.  LTE is also being tuned and added in these markets.

The Austin map is laughable. There are plenty of LTE holes even on highways in town/outdoors. Also interesting that my Nexus 5 isn't listed as a Spark device.

Yeah I noticed that as well, strange.
