2/8 Coverage Map Update

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

The coverage map was updated again today. It appears Sprint is displaying increased LTE coverage due to the new (more weak LTE friendly) handoff parameters for VoLTE. I didn't notice any big roaming or native coverage changes otherwise.

Actually, poking around the coverage map, I noticed that all of Sprint’s former C Sprire roaming coverage in Mississippi is native now. Is this new?

It was like that in the last update in January

If Sprint and T-Mobile were to merge, C Spire would see a dramatic drop in their network usage by Sprint customers as T-Mobile covers most of the areas C Spire does. This would lead to reduced revenue from roaming fees for C Spire.

Accordingly, C Spire being against the merger seems pretty logical.

Oh I obviously. If you see a drop in Revenue that means a drop and overall income. That means less money to build out their Network or launch new services like fixed home internet services. I get they are against it. But at the same time even a reciprocating roaming agreement still puts a lot of strain on c-spire because they lose a ton of roaming Revenue as you just said.

Why would CSpire be shown as native coverage?  I'd imagine a map error. 

Does Sprint have some new roaming tier that CSpire is now part of?

Did you just get it a few days ago? I remember you posting in the Galaxy S9/9+ thread recently. You should post your thoughts on it in the V40 thread.

    • Very Good point.  Somebody tell management to quit fooling around with the silly "perks' and silly discounts for only certain people. This is costing a lot of money and gets next to no retained customers. I do not stay with a cell phone company for a "Popeyes" anything.  I and most other people want excellent service and none of the Tuesday Giveaways.   Spend all your cash on improvements to the network and stop all the playing around.  If you have to give away a Burger King sandwich to hold onto a customer, you must have a bad network.  Get a good network and you will not have to give away hamburgers.
    • heyyyyy   I dont see self employed on there... hahahah  
    • I finally experienced SA N71 earlier for the first time. Caught it just outside of Louisville headed back into town, I was able to force my phone to SA N71 only and held it until I got to my office. I set everything back to enabled when I went into my office so I could use our CellSpot. On my way home I forced SA N71 again but never connected to it. The MM5G update line always says "Roaming not allowed". I passed several N71 towers on my way home and cycled both airplane mode and toggling between everything enabled and just SA N71 with no luck. I wonder if they are still testing and configuring the core or something. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
    • Or you install multiple massive MIMOs per sector in the markets that can handle it/ need it.  Another option is to leave most Sprint b41 up where possible until needed on the T-Mobile side.
    • n41 is officially in my neighborhood! It's not on my home site just yet but it's getting closer. This site was about a 5 minute drive from my house. Still 40MHz according to engineering screens. The site it was on didn't even have 600MHz antennas on it so T-Mobile clearly sees Band 41 as priority number 1 right now.
