I thought Sprint was going with LTE release 10, not release 9.

 

No release 10 until next year. The upgrade involves no hardware changes.

I think its funny on those coverage charts that the descriptions are 'good - better - best - excellent', nothing negative there.

 

They should have a color shade for "dead zone" :lol:

Triumph of marketing over engineering :lol: .

Guys, the map shows areas of no native coverage quite clearly:

So, what more do you expect?

They could have : Grey = No coverage/roaming.

 

I do find Sprint's coverage maps to be the most accurate among the cell companies in my area.

I do wish they'd make the maps easier to read, the different shades of green are on purpose to hide roaming with native coverage. They should make this clearer, as in greens for sprint and anything else to anything else.

Seriously, is there any question that the white/grey areas depicted on the map indicate roaming or no coverage?

 

Regardless, the map is intended to display Network Vision improvements to *native* CDMA1X/EV-DO footprint. Inclusion of any roaming footprint would not be germane.

Don't know what else you want... seems easy to read and definitely the best of the coverage maps from the carriers. Guess people are just very nit picky.

Go to their coverage site. http://coverage.sprintpcs.com/IMPACT.jsp

 

Zoom out a little, take a look at the coverage for:

 

1) Sprint coverage - signal strength varies

2) Off-Network Roaming

 

green and slightly off green. Another colour should be used, blue/red/yellow/orange...anything.

This is not being picky. They do this on purpose, as do the other cell companies.

Well, the reason you can't tell a difference is that there are no areas of "Sprint coverage - signal strength varies" on that map. Normally you'd only see that in affiliate and wholesale markets where Sprint doesn't have access to the tower locations, which there are fewer of these days.

    • I don't know the site number it's the site on WSDOT property, at 31st and S Meridian. 
    • New oddity since the Feb security patch and a carrier services upgrade, no matter if Wifi is turned on or off, I'm seeing a Wifi 4 connection to an unknown ssid.  Airplane mode, etc didn't get rid of it. Connecting to my home wifi (which turned into Wifi 5) then disconnecting resolved the issue. Not sure where/why the ghost was coming from
    • Digging permits for fiber/power pulled by T-Mobile. American Tower sites are just easy to look up since we can find where they are easy enough.
    • Where do you get new tower plans for American Tower? Do they show on the American Tower Site Locator map?    Also, here’s a map of permits across Northwest Ohio (Lucas County) if anyone’s interested 😁 https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/2/edit?mid=1-qgOcMVOnqW4b9-HhUDc7AGxbRLqn48&usp=sharing
    • That's a decent number of new sites. Nebraska is likely the oddest market in the country, as T-Mobile didn't exist here until a few years ago. Until last summer, their footprint didn't really extend much out of Omaha, Sprint had a much larger footprint. But I'd like to think that their aggressive expansion here is a signal that they intend to follow through on their rural expansion plans. Given the number of American Tower sites that we know they are targeting across NE, KS, MO, IA, AR and IL, it does seem that they have an expansion plan ready to go. Unfortunately we haven't done any digging for the OH area so I don't have any details there for you.
