Coverage Map Update 4/3

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Sprint updated their coverage map today and coverage looks absolutely horrendous, at least in Seattle. Has anyone else noticed the update?

Doesn't look much different to me

The voice coverage map specifically looks awful in Seattle, probably even worse than L1900 coverage...

The main difference I see is all that roaming east of Seattle is gone, but it may have been gone for a while.. I hadn't looked at that area in a while.

Sprint provides CDMA and LTE coverage the entire way from Seattle to Canada on both highways 5 and 9; I've driven both roads numerous times. The new map doesn't reflect this. The new map also displays coverage holes along highway 12 between I-5 and Packwood as well as roaming between Sedro-Woolley and Concrete, both of which are covered well. Large coverage areas south of Tacoma are missing, too, and there appear to be new inaccurate roaming holes on the east side of Lake Washington. 

Coverage on the west side of the sound is also thoroughly understated...

Yet all the sites are shown. It's like the reporting threshold was reduced several dBm.

Yes. Very strange. There were areas before where I thought coverage was understated - now the maps look like they barely display L1900 coverage.

Maybe "Voice" coverage is not CDMA.  They might be showing VOLTE voice capability??

Even then, the voice coverage map falls far short of L800 coverage - even short of L1900 coverage in some places.

Colorado definitely is different. There doesn't seem to be any change for any markets east of Colorado. I'm not familiar enough with SW region markets to be able to tell.

I can confirm that Louisville and Chicago seem to be relatively unchanged.

Nothing different in ND on this update. On the January update a few sites went from being LTE+3G to 3G only.

Well I can tell that highway 6 heading to Blackhawk from Golden and then highway 119 to Blackhawk is mostly false. Verizon has small cells all along highway 6 through the canyon so sprint will roam through there. Once you get closer to Blackhawk then all carriers signal improves.

    • New beta rolling out now, should be available within the next few hours. Major work on the 5G routines.. fingers crossed for some great improvements. 5G-NR information will now be displayed in its own block on the main screen like other connections, and standalone 5G connections have their own status bar icons. There is still a lot of work to do, but hopefully this is a big step forward.. let me know! EDIT: Google Play is taking longer than usual to process this update. I will add a post when I get notified that it has gone live.
    • T-Mo has been adding the N41 panels to their sites in Phoenix the past couple of weeks. I would imagine they will be either stealing a couple of the Sprint carriers or killing my MB relay channel soon. I think they have enough bandwidth here to keep it all running for now though. We will see, I'm on Sprint and I'm connected to B41 90% of the time outdoors. To lose that would suck to say the least. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
    • Ok that's the one exception. This Kentucky boy can definitely throw down with some fried chicken! 
    • I'm fairly certain I saw a T-Mobile site with the N41 antennas added near 6th and I-25. Unfortunately couldn't really stop to take a closer look. Still have a device locked to the Sprint network so couldn't tell what signal was there.
