Sprint LTE May 2012 Schedule Maps

Recommended Posts

Me too. I really hope the wait for LTE in the Bay Area won't be as bad as it was for WiMax (still very limited). We're supposedly in round-one and there's not a single sign that it's coming.

 

I hope the wait isn't bad but mostly I hope the COVERAGE is better. WiMax is a disaster in the South Bay unfortunately, the coverage is so incredibly spotty it's depressing.

You don't say...who would have thought there would be permitting issues in SFO market!

LOL, I thought the same thing, especially in SF proper. EIRs and NIMBY neighborhood meetings galore put a real damper on my 4G satisfaction :angry: I have no doubt the same individuals call to complain about bad coverage too.

Hi everybody,

 

New guy here.

I'm very interested in these kind of topics, but I'm just learning.

 

I've read a lot about the Sprint's Network Vision, but one question keeps me awake at night.

What the hell happens with all the iDEN base stations that Sprint is shutting down? Do they sell them to other iDEN operators around the world? Sell them back to Motorola (for some form of recycling, maybe)? Sell them as garbage?

what's up with this i didn't think they were putting 2.5mhz on NV

They are only going to maintain the network until 2015. They don't want to just abandon all of the people on their (admittedly joke of a) 4G WiMAX network. Who knows what will happen after 2015, but I'm guessing they'll put LTE on there or just dismantle it. They could also continue the network for Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile, who just announced their 4G WiMAX networks piggybacking off of Sprint's network.

Not only is Memphis in the second round, it is one of the earlier 2nd round markets. We will have an update about the Memphis market in an article posted in The Wall soon.

I wasn't going to ask timing questions related to my market since I'm not a premier sponsor, but since everyone else is doing it I guess I will as well. Any news on when NV will start for West Michigan, more specifically tower DE54XC801???

This is a quote from Robert in another thread;

 

There is no timelines for any city, per se. Network Vision is rolled out over a whole market, one site at a time. ... <quote snipped>

The Hawaii market is not in the first two rounds of Network Vision. So it will start some time in 2013.

Thanks, Robert and Odell. Guess I'll be hanging onto my trusty ol' Evo 4G a little while longer when my contract is up in July. At least I'll have 4G in the meantime until we catch up with everyone.

 

It figures Hawaii would be bringing up the rear--we've always been given back of the bus treatment by almost all companies.

I think in this case it is just market size. For the most part only Primary WiMax markets are getting NV/LTE in 2012. Secondary markets that already have WiMax have the lowest priority it seems. Places like Las Vegas, Cincinnati, Columbus, Denver...and in your case, Hawaii.

That's disappointing to hear, but thanks for the insight. I was kind of hoping Hawaii or Honolulu would be sooner rather than later, since we were one of the first for Wimax under Clear, but I guess that was a completely different company and rollout strategy. Still would have been nice to get it sooner. I guess I'll be signing up for a clear contract-free hotspot to use for the infrequent occasions when I need 4G access. Might consider the new Sprint tri-fi too, since they now offer day/week/month to month plans with it.

    • Should be able to draw some good interest once we get these torn down and figured out. Expect lots of proprietary protocol so finding a comm port on the modem will be tricky if that is your thing. Getting an antenna design going is what I am excited for most. All I can do with the software is try to break it hard enough in the most blatant manner possible.  I have to be nice to this case though, I shredded a MR100 Nighthawk and a couple of magic boxes no problem, I'm trying to keep this thing at least a few more months, so I am excited to see what I can come up with. If you manage to teardown Sprint's premiere 5G home router and set up some externals that would be really neat to see.   Jim @LTEfix is great. We boomer chat on facebook and get confused by all the software, bitmaps and such. He really has a great domestic business going sourcing all this stuff. Thanks to his services I have an elaborate junkyard going and now 3 year Ever Improving LTE Internet Project. 
    • Doesn't look like it. It only supports Band 2, 4, 5, 12, 13, 17, 26, 41, 66, and LTE-U. It also doesn't have CDMA support. That said, U.S. variants of Samsung phones tend to have U on the end of their name while international variants tend to be F. This is the international variant.
    • Something interesting I discovered is it still shows voice roaming in most of these areas. 
    • I'm noticing some new giant dead spots along I-29 in ND now. Central MN as well. Also SE MN, central MI, southern OH, parts of KY, VA, NC, SC, GA. It's like they just went in and carved some areas out. Seems like they cut out along major interstates. Maybe a cost saving measure to remove roaming?
    • I just took a trip up Hwy 395 in Central CA between Mojave and Bishop and was roaming on Verizon in some areas.  This was for voice at least as I test called customer service and got the Verizon recording.  I also had data roaming in some places but not sure who's signal that was as it worked fine for internet browsing (Ebay, Yahoo and Facebook) but wouldn't allow me to send pictures or search google in my web browser.  I'm guessing the file size on the pictures I was trying to send were probably too large for what the roaming partner allows.  Also wherever Sprint had coverage LTE worked fine and the voice signal was on 800 Mhz according to debug mode.
