5G Coverage Map

Recommended Posts

Sprint updated their coverage map today. It looks like the public map is now displaying 5G coverage!

I see the 5G icon, but zooming into Chicago loop or Washington DC on the mall only shows 4G, even with the v50 selected.

Take a look at the official four launch cities. 5G coverage is displayed there.

Chicago - fail.  Will check Atlanta, Dallas and Kansas City.

The other three do have it, although it is Overland Park more than Kansas City.

Four launch cities: Atlanta, Dallas, Houston and Kansas

next round a few weeks later: Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix and Washington, D.C.

It looks like Union Extended LTE has been added to the Coverage Map in Wyoming.  It only shows up on the 5G coverage map though...

Sprint updated the 5G network performance page: 

Quote

5G network*: Expect to experience download speeds of 115-255Mbps and upload speeds of 1-5Mbps with an average device to network edge round-trip latency of 30-56ms. The average speed and latency of our 5G network is suitable for video and audio streaming, web browsing and other general Internet usage consistent with Sprint's terms and conditions.

* We expect network speeds will continue to improve as we optimize the 5G network and add new capabilities.

Those speeds are pretty bad, considering Verison's UWB is getting 1.2Gbps.  Is Sprint just aggregating multiple 20Mhz blocks on LTE and calling it a day?

What device did you select? That is probably the old LTE Plus map. Some devices seem to be incorrectly showing that, and will just show LTE if you click through to the coverage tool.

Verizon's MM-WAVE 5G has horrid coverage, in reality cant really compare, but Sprint's using 40 or 60Mhz block of 5G NR  thats peaking around 800mbs...

Much better than I thought.  Is this LTE or a new technology?

One of the 5g devices, but can't seem to replicate the map now.  Hmmm

Sprint's 5G performance is similar to the 5G networks launching in Europe. The benefit of Sprint's 5G network is that at least you have contiguous coverage, both indoors and outdoors and even while driving around. With mmWave, if you aren't within direct line of sight of a cell site, your speeds will drop to below Sprint advertised average speeds. Also mmWave signal is pretty much non-existent if you have so much as a pane of glass in the way. 

Peak performance ≠ Average performance

For LTE yeah.  Sprint has real 5G NR, just like everyone else.  The difference is VZW/ATT/TMobile are aggregating multiple (4 and 5) 50/100MHz channels.  Sprint is deploying 60? MHz for 5G. Nothing wrong with the 60Mhz since we are talking UHF vs K/Ka bands. Pros and cons to both deployments.

    • On both my Sprint LG V50 and Unlocked Amazon LG G8 information on signal check only refreshes on launch or under some Network change conditions. Basically it's almost always displaying very stale info. Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
    • New SignalCheck beta is rolling out now.. bugfix city! Slowly making progress with Dual-SIM support, but nothing to share yet. The new update should appear on Google Play within the hour. Thank you for all your support!
    • I already have "73" as a Band 4 small cell; I do need to do something so those carry over to B66 I guess. Are you certain that "4D" is a small cell? I have no entries in the database for that suffix right now.   So you can confirm that "31" should also be a B4/B66 SC? Just want to make sure I'm understanding you correctly. I already have "B3" thru "B6" assigned as a Band 2 second carrier on macro sites -- are you sure they were small cells?
    • Now I know you're all thinking "Brad this is terrible!". It is both terrible and not terrible. Let's compare Sprint's data against the July 2019 report to see what's improved.  4G Availability has improved quite a bit (OpenSignal is very urban-heavy on it's data though, 4G availability should be considered availability in urban environments only). On the July 2019 report it was 89.5. On the January 2020 report it's 92.5. That's a 3% increase! Sprint's scores on the video experience metric have also improved. On the July 2019 report, Sprint scored a 47.5. On the January 2020 report, they scored 55.5. OpenSignal had this to say: We're going to break down the Download Speed Experience metric into 4G and 3G performance. Average 4G download speed on the July 2019 report was 21.1Mbps. Average 4G download speed on the January 2020 report is 25.9Mbps. That's a 4.8Mbps increase in average 4G download speed. Average 3G download speed on the July 2019 report was 1.3Mbps. Average 3G download speed on the January 2020 report was 1.4Mbps. The 3G speeds are what is dragging the overall download speed metric score down. Upload speed experience is going to focus on 4G speeds only. Sprint's average 4G upload speed on the July 2019 report was 2.6Mbps. Average 4G upload speed on the January 2020 was 3Mbps. A very small increase which shows that uploads still need a lot of work.  Latency experience will only focus on 4G. Sprint's average 4G latency on the July 2019 report was 55.1ms. Average 4G latency on the January 2020 report is 51.2ms. 
    • Brad!    NO... There is no time table.    The judge said he will try to make a decision as soon as possible. You picked up Phone Arena's headline ... that's their opinion. Here is what the judge said: (Feburary was not what was said.)    It may be, but it's not concrete.   What's next Judge Marrero opened Wednesday's hearing reminding attendees that, "there is life beyond the merger of T-Mobile and Sprint." He declined to say when he will return with a final ruling on whether to approve the merger, but said he would "endeavor to decide as quickly as possible." Sprint and T-Mobile make a final argument for why their massive merger should be allowed to go through
