Sprint coverage map updated 4/14


Recommended Posts

Had to strongly nudge them.  Privately gave Sprint a detailed list of 100 missing LTE sites (mostly GMO) with location and GCI on a map (only an image of a heatmap was published for the general public) for Western PA, Pittsburgh, Columbus, and Toledo.  Seemed to include all of them except Columbus (possibly out of spite).  Gunther has pinned his hopes on a new coverage map system yet to be seen. Other Sprint guys told me I was wasting my time. I did not event attempt b41 corrections for that reason (and to attempt keep focus on LTE), except one case of overstating and another of missing b41 (neither corrected).  My hope was they could maybe get LTE right over large areas.  Details except private message here:






:sunny: The best way to look at this is we may have made some difference and S4Gru is still needed to at least know what coverage is available from given sites (assuming local confirmations).

Williamsport in Western PA market and US-22 to i-99 up to I-80 then i-80 east are very accurate from my signal detector logs. But I have a feeling old ntelos area is over estimated unless something has changed since I have been to a few places It maybe a guess based on Shentels maps though. I am keeping my fingers crossed it is accurate but not holding my breath. Ithaca NY is over estimated to the east on 79 by a few miles maybe 2 miles but the west seems correct to I-99.


I trying to see how big a signal detector log can be I am at 28 MB and 82000 right now.

    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.  
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
    • Same with factory unlocked
