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.

I have NOT.  In my area, in some of their "best" LTE coverage, I still drop down to 3G, even when I'm outside.  I think they should drop some of it down to "fair" LTE coverage.

http://srv.so/CoverageMaps/sprint/index.php here you guys go. It's not all that pretty but it works. :)

 

Not working for me on chrome, it's only producing a 420 x 315 image. :(

 

I noticed Sprint holds the first set of spark/turbo images in these directories:

http://coverage.sprint.com/MapTile/SparkDataMap/Tiles/spark_data/14/

http://coverage.sprint.com/MapTile/OverlayMap/Tiles/Overlay/14/

 

This is way beyond me, but maybe you would know. Is there a way to download (all?) files from the directory, even if you don't know the file names?

Yeah I noticed that. They switched to Google maps and open layers. It's just a tiled map. I can bring it outside of Sprint's website, I have to look around a little more first.

I get the same size image in both Chrome and IE.

Looking between November and today, amazing the coverage difference for LTE. Sprint really cleaned up some of the issues we saw with LTE being overstated. Look along the highways in Kansas and Missouri.

I noticed some missing 3G like in Washington state. Also it seems as though there is more conservative 3G coverage in some areas. One of the more noticeable areas was I-10 and I-8 by the Arizona/California border. Both had what looked like contiguous highway coverage but now are small circles with a little bit of roaming in between.

This is just some more basic photoshop work that I thought would be fun to do.

I wanna do sonething similar for TMO: they have 4 separate maps that they give to their mvnos: 2g, 3G, 4g, lte.

 

I want to basically do "lte map minus 4g map" to see where the GMO lte is.

Added a Clearwire Map for archival purposes. I wish I had more time to stitch together a higher resolution map, but at least it's something.

That is important archival work.  Thank you.

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      Sprint announced the MVNO Google Fi will use its network for 5G in a press release (that is, once there are actually 5G capable phones compatible with Google Fi someday):
      https://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-to-provide-5g-wireless-services-for-google-fi.htm
       
      This is the first I've heard about Fi and 5G so far. Google has pretty much kept mum on the topic, so I'm somewhat encouraged.
