Not really. Two Clear to NV conversions in Seattle are now shown on the voice map, but that's all I've noticed. 

How many of the Clear sites are left to convert nationwide?

I found this weird coverage map site from Sprint, I think it's a test site: https://coverageort.sprint.com/IMPACT.jsp?

The updated date updates every day. I can't tell of any changes though. 

Interesting...it says updated today although the map is relatively out of date.

Not sure what it's for.

Perhaps a test for "Verified Coverage" like T-Mobile does?

Very interesting find! May I ask how you found it? Were you testing different URL's?

Check out that Five Gee in the legend. This is something new for sure.

i know they have been using M-MIMO equipment outside of launch market in some cases. I noticed that Peekskill NY shows 5G coverage. Technically its with in the NYC market but 5G launches have mostly been by city not the entire market. I have a feeling this site shows coverage for all M-MIMO equipment for when they push 5G software. If you look at Dallas and Dc there are also a few blotches of 5G coverage far from the city

Any url from the sprint.com domain with "ort" is a test site. Newer sites I don't think use ort anymore but many of them are internal meaning you need to be on their intranet. I guess a few of them slip through and this is one of them.

I simply used Google. https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Asprint.com+"ort"&oq=site%3Asprint.com+"ort"

Cool! Thanks for the info. Really nice find.

Sometimes Sprint's coverage map really frustrates me, as they severely understate coverage. I drove between Galesburg, IL and Moline, IL today and never dropped below -114 L800 although the coverage map indicates large roaming holes along the highway. They also don't give themselves enough credit going east form Galesburg on 74. I only dropped LTE once to 1x800 and it was for maybe 15 seconds, although the map indicates lots of roaming and "fair" voice coverage areas.

The 5G map was pulled and I didn't have a chance to grab the tile URLs, unfortunately. Someone posted it on reddit and I think Sprint caught wind of it. 

As soon as I saw it on Reddit, I started counting down. Sprint patrols Reddit much more than this site.

There are a bunch in the Missouri Market that still needs to be converted. I've only found a few that have been converted but not many

    • Went to Rolling Loud NYC at Citi Field this weekend. Over 60,000 people in attendance. Verizon is a sponsor of the festival this year so naturally they had a ton of COWs set up at the festival. I counted at least 4. As a result, they were virtually the only carrier consistently able to provide a data connection. I didn't see any Verizon 5G, only LTE. T-Mobile on the other hand was a very interesting experience. I was seeing an eNB 331804 which I'm 99% sure is a COW. They also seems to be doing some sort of traffic management because I noticed that if I left my phone idle in my pocket, it would drop down to No Service/SOS or sometimes it would sit on EDGE. But the second that I needed to send a text, make a call, or even use Twitter my phone would switch over to LTE or 5G to complete the task. In an active data session, my phone would constantly flip between Band 2, Band 66, and Band 41. Sometimes, I'd catch myself on the COW and other times I'd get pushed over to eNB 875868, the relatively new Sprint conversion nearby. The network moved at a snails pace though. Where Verizon took about 15 seconds to load Twitter or send a pic, T-Mobile could take up to a minute to complete the same task. Here's some photos of the COWs I spotted. I think that the first two are Verizon and the one in the distance in the third pic is T-Mobile's single COW, not nearly enough for an event that size.
