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Interesting...it says updated today although the map is relatively out of date.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

    • Just mapped at least 8 5G small cells (all 109xxxx gNBs) while driving on the Southern State. They all seem to be n25/n41. I'm pretty sure nearly all of them are upgrades of existing small cells as opposed to new builds but I'm glad to see Crown Castle/T-Mobile hard at work getting midband 5G on all of these. Each of the unpinned gNBs belong to 1-2 small cells. I still can't pin these sites until the Cellmapper devs give us the option to split cells for 5G sites.
    • Their offers have been crap recently, so this is just more evidence to not buy from T-Mobile. 
    • 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.
