Sprint LTE Coverage Map - Dallas/Ft.Worth Market

Recommended Posts

Here is a Sprint 4G LTE coverage map of the live sites as of April 20, 2012 in the Sprint DFW Market. Darker green does not denote stronger coverage, only doubled up coverage.

The whole map didn't render at first. I see the entire area now. Wow, Fort Worth got the love! I hope they have more planned.

Is the coverage map for 4g LTE available for Houston and its surrounding area? Living in Sugar Land, I fear LTE may not come as quickly as Downtown Houston.

Should be 34' date=' correct?[/quote']

 

I can't do a site count at the moment. I'm in the car. But the map was rendered based on the completed sites I had as of Midnight last night.

Additional sites are going live every day. This is just a snapshot in time. We will update the map every week or so.

 

No Lewisville love yet? Hopefully it's not too much longer.

 

Lewisville will be getting coverage soon enough. Deployment is going hot and heavy over the whole market.

I am working on the Houston map next.

Robert, do you sleep?? You're alway look working overtime and giving info and trying to cover all places :o

:tu:

 

Just an estime, how much miles in distance does the LTE Coverage reach from the antenna? In a clear line of sight. Or how big is the radius around the antenna.

 

Nervermind: I find the radius on the interactive map.

Awesome! Thanks for the quick response. Looking forward to the updated maps for this market. This site rocks.

The radius on the map is just a cut of point for the calculation. How far the coverage goes depends on tower height, weather, your phone, conductivity of the ground, height of phone, interference, and many others I cant think of right now. For line of sight potentially could get signal until the curvature of the earth blocks your los with the right equipment.

Thanks I just was looking for a theorical distance, I know there a lot of factors that can change the distansce and coverage.

There is no limit that I know of, we still get signal from the voyager spacecraft outside of our solar system. EMF is light, as long as you can collect enough of it to differentiate it from background light in that frequency you would be able to have "signal" I made a random cell tower for you with 100 mile radius so you can see the piratical limits with a cell phone https://cloudrf.com/gallery/index.php?id=43699

Although there are so many factors, you can plan from 3 to 6 miles radius on average.

Only two NV sites active in NYC that we have received reports on. I expect more soon.

Thanks Robert. I hope the rollout can occur a lot faster that it is because NYC has A LOT of cell sites.

Bummer. Went outside with a LG Viper and could not catch any tasty waves from the LTE tower a mile away.

As expected. But, how do you like the phone?

SF Bay Market deployment should begin in a few months. There has been a lot of permitting delays and red tape in this market. I know, shocking, right?

Eh, I had hope since some dude on the sprint.com forums said he had service. (Damn lies, I tell ya!)

 

I like the phone. I may get it for my daughter to replace her Optimus.

Good to hear. That will be a heck of a nice upgrade for her. Thx for the feedback.

Have you noticed that when compared to other phones the LG Viper has lower signal readings? I was playing with both the LG Viper and the Galaxy Nexus side by side and both had vastly different readings.

    • Sprint definitely needs it in NYC. I roam a lot. Look on Sensorly, which Sprint uses as reference, there are quite a few areas that are low in signal. Including in but not limited to Manhattan, without mentioning towers with signal but no service all over the city. I personally one of Sprint's numerous mistakes in the past was in not prioritizing the tops markets. T-Mobile is not great outside of cities to this day, but few of it's customers know that.
    • On the same note People pay for cell phones and service on other carriers for a reason. If it is really important to you or anybody else Sprint, under normal circumstances, is not the best choice. On that note, I have a S9+ from Samsung which I configured to use "Calling Plus". It is a nice feature to have when I am not roaming in NYC, as I often do. I have been able to try T-Mobile roaming, and it works very well. I look forward to it being more wide spread. 
    • Mine got better too, it was the update before that I had big battery drain
    • I had the same issue.  I ended up contacting Sprint on Twitter.  We exchanged a couple of DMs and then Sprint moved to a trouble shooter on the web and finally had a trouble shooter call me.  After some time troubleshooting remotely, they decided to replace the unit. The replacement unit works well.  See the SCP shots before and after in my home taken with a Galaxy S9.. Additional comments: While the MB is not up against a window as recommended, I can get a MB signal on the public street in front of my home.  Makes my remote garage door opener on my phone more dependable.  Same for my Nest connection on my phone. I see a difference on both my HTC One M8 and my new Galaxy S9. HTC One m8 Speedtest in house WiFi verses Magic Box.  Not sure how these numbers compare to the norm around here. A moment later, Sprint beat my WiFi upload at 5.12 MbPs.
