HD Sprint Coverage Maps


Recommended Posts

Thank you so much!!! How do you compile images like these? I always wanted topstitch multiple images together but I never could.

 

With some HTML editing, I was able to view the Sprint coverage map nearly full screen in my browser. I went in and changed nearly every resolution I saw to 4k, and removed images that were in the way. It was a headache.

 

Then I stitched a few screenshots together.

I didn't realize until yesterday when I checked Sprint's coverage map that I now have Sprint Spark in the area! wow! This makes me want to get a tri-band phone so bad. D:

The spark coverage for Jacksonville is a lie.

In what way?

The sprint map shows Jacksonville bathe in yellow coloring as if band 41 was equal to band 25/26 coverage and it's not. Band 41 is doing its hotspot duty and that's how it should show on the map. Unless sprint is showing spark as band 41/26 on their maps.

Uh, if you are using your experience with a handset to judge multi band LTE coverage, you are doing it the wrong way.

 

Sorry, guys, with the move to multi band LTE, all bets are off.  Even though the band that you want may be available, you may not always be camped on it.  That is a product of your handset and the network.

I agree with you. One example I have though is River City Market place near the Jacksonville airport shows turbo Spark coverage. Whenever I go there only band I connect to band 25. It gets so bogged down I get kicked to 3g without ever connecting to band 41. In fact I've never connected to band 41 at this location even though the maps show coverage. Even when outside.

There are some areas around Houston that show Spark coverage, but not even 1X is available outside.

The coverage maps are really just Sprint guessing, and when in doubt they guess in their favor I suppose.

 

Even if B41 doesn't reach, they still might show it yellow because nearby B41 helps offload B25/B26. So even on B25/B26, you'll  have higher speeds compared to no B41 available in the area.

That's weird because Sensorly shows Sprint having LTE in Katy, TX. It doesn't even show 1x on the 2G/3G map.

I thought for sure I saw the spark icon spinning on my dad's G2 when I was in Lafayette, LA. Or, does the spark icon appear any time any LTE appears?

 

That is the standard LTE icon whether you are connected to band 25, 26 or 41.

With Sprint maps you need to zoom in to the best and fair levels. At the zoomed out levels it shows the combined of all signals, which is greatly inaccurate. Zoomed in and looking at Best coverage actually produces pretty accurate signal coverage to expect. I have been pretty impressed in most areas how accurate the Best coverage is.

    • One more thing.. I just took a photo of a random glass on my counter in low light with both phones with no modifications to the stock camera settings.  The difference is night and day.  The photo taken with the Note looks crisp. Details are sharp. The dim scene is brightened beautifully.  Even the curtains in the background remain sharp and clear even when zoomed in.  The Pixel 7 Pro attempt at the same photo is laughable.  Blurrycam UFO type horrendous.  Did I get a faulty device?  This thing is horrific.  Something seems waaaay off.  
    • I received my P7 Pro 2 days ago and - coming from my Note 10 plus - I absolutely hate it!  I didn't expect to hate it so much but even the screen looks grossly inferior to my Note 10+ even though I know that makes no sense, at least on paper.  But I'm holding them side by side right now and the Pixel 7 Pro display looks grainy and borderline blurry compared to my several year old Note 10+.  What's going on here??  I toggled on full resolution thinking that would change things but....no.  the screen just looks awful.  Also...is there a way to mirror the Pixel 7 Pro to your smart tv without WiFi?  I've always done this with my Samsung phone. I thought allcast would be able to help out with that but it seems to not even function with this phone.  I'm about to smash this damn thing against the wall but I can't because I need it in one piece so I can return it ASAP to Best Buy.  I've honestly never been so wildly disappointed in a device.  Definitely going to switch it for the S22 Ultra. I don't understand the hype with this device.  Other than instant Android updates (which may not be the best idea after all) ...I can no longer see the allure.  
    • Any word on how SCP works with lineageos 19 on a oneplus nord n200 5g? Alternatively, how does the modem option work with rooted Android 11 on the same device? Maybe it has been depreciated in the past given the APIs. But since those are failing with NSA was planning to revisit the rooted modem options.
    • It doesn't include T-Mobile because AT&T objected to the T-Mobile applications.  The fact that anything at all was filed will add time. - Trip
