Sprint Coverage Map Updated May 11th, 2018


Recommended Posts

Post any changes you find!

In Cumberland, zip code 21502:

These areas are now being shown as 4G LTE! However, they are not. They are still 3G only. The last map had them at Extended LTE, but now there is 4G LTE covering, yet it's only 3G?

Shentel confirmed to me that these areas are being upgraded in Q3 with new towers being added, but it's only Q2?

 

UPDATE: If you look in the "VOICE" map, these areas are shown as "Extended" so I guess this is T-Mobile data roaming? Look at these images:

Yeah, it's always interesting when on the coverage map you see native LTE, but extended or roaming voice in the same area.

In the last several updates, Sprint has had issues with future coverage showing up on the official map. When the next update comes around, it often disappears. I suspect that is what is happening here. I have not found other evidence so far of T-Mobile roaming appearing on the official map yet.

Sprint's coverage maps are a lost cause in Cleveland market.  Our problem is that more B41 keeps disappearing with each update.  My estimation is that about 75% of our macro sites now have B41, but one would never know that by looking at the Sprint coverage maps.  At least with this latest update, most of the former clearwire sites show up again, but basically any additional B41 since the Huawei equipment swap that occurred in 2016 isn't being shown.

You guys have one of the best market teams here, and have consistently received visible band 41 upgrades over the years. This is a genuine shame to the network progress in your area.

Our 6 out of 70 site upgrades don't show either, and they were all added since 1/1/17 as well.

Wow, so soon!

Seems to be very minor. One area, Cumberland now shows the coverage in voice too. In my previous post, the area only had LTE data showing. See what I mean here: https://imgur.com/a/XdXaKGU

 

However, there isn’t any native LTE yet. Just 3G.

Man, Sprint really needs to jump on this coverage map.  

So a lot of B41 in my home town still does not show. Some of the towers are over 6 months old and going on 1yr now.  Then I have been traveling in Alabama a lot recently, so B41 coverage in this state at all.  In Birmingham it appeared to be mostly MM (which supposedly they aren't showing up on the coverage map yet) but in Huntsville and now here in Decatur, what I pick up aren't MMs.

    • Author kinda doesn't know what they're talking about, as they assumed their speeds were n71-only (it's like they half-read the PCMag article they cite). The speeds they're mentioning are 100% from n71 + n66 SDL, which also explains speeds dropping off a cliff when they walk indoors. In fact, Dish has some paired AWS-3 in Spokane, albeit just 5x5, so I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't bothered deploying that and are just doing 71 + n66 SDL (the former at 5x5). May head down to San Marcos and New Braunfels tonight to do some testing. I expect either n71-only or n71 + SDL, not sure which. n71 is 5x5 here as Dish has leased half of their 10x10 to T-Mobile. When that lease expires they'll be at 10x10, and they could get another 10 MHz FD (albeit not contiguous) from speculators if T-Mobile didn't outbid them. Will be interesting to see who buys what when.
    • The Verge wrote an article on Dish’s network.    https://www.theverge.com/2022/7/1/23188077/dish-wireless-project-genesis-first-week-testing-speeds-coverage
    • I guess that makes sense. I know that ZiplyFiber (my ISP) has had issues with sourcing fiber as well.  Also, that recently upgraded site is interesting. NOt only does it have a strange eNB value, 236960, which  is different from the ones usually around here but also, all of the LTE bands (including B41) are on the same eNB. This is the first time I have seen  T-Mobile do that in this area.  Also found another upgraded site, eNB 84770, by FireStation 26 has been upgraded with B71/n71 (no n41). 
    • Almost the exact same thing happened on my Verizon Galaxy Flip a couple days ago.
