    4G Information
  1. I was referring to markets like the Western Michigan Market whose population are significantly smaller than the population of the Upper Central Valley market. There are other small markets like Western Michigan that are tier 2 or 3 launches. If it is 2013 then I won't be so upset, we will see.
  2. No one has shown anything I said was inaccurate. FACTs that I posted: 1. Verizon, MetroPCS, and AT&T all launched LTE in Sacramento with in a few months of the first city launch, basically a 2nd phase city, with the case of MetroPCS it launched with New York and San Francisco. 2. Sprint is upgrading markets with less than 1/2 of the population as Central Valley Market, more than year before the CVM. 3. MetroPCS had LTE in Sacramento in 2010 Verizon in early 2012, and AT&T in med 2012. Sprint won't launch until 2014.
  3. He said they will begin mid to late next year, I will likely take a year from that to actually launch anything.
  4. No ATT and Verizon have been lightyears faster at deploying. Sprint will likely be 3-4 years behind Verizon here and 2-3 years behind AT&T. Sad but true.
  5. The Sacramento Market as sprint defines it includes other areas such as Stockton, Modesto, etc. These are NOT part of the Sacramento Metro area.
  6. You should actually look up population of an area. The Upper Central Valley market has around 5 million people living there. The Sacramento market includes more than Sacramento, it includes Stockton, Modesto, Reno, and other places. It is so easy for people to criticize when your areas have already begun development.it All I know and many other people who are dropping sprint is Verizon and ATT had us launch as one of the earlier markets, while sprint has us launching as one of the LAST market, also 5 was a mistake it should have said round 4.
  7. I just do not understand why markets with 5 million + people are round 5 while other markets with less than 2 million people are round 2. No one has explained the reasoning for this.
  8. Sacramento, Verizon launched in early 2011, sprint will be lucky by mid to late 2014.
  9. I am just sadden that while Verizon and ATT decided my area should be among the earlier markets, sprint has decided it should be among the last markets.
  10. I don't see how what sprint is doing is much different then when verizon first launched its LTE network. Verizon launched LTE in all of the major population areas of California within a few months of each other, it looks like sprint will take closer to 2 years. I don't see how that is faster.
  11. I understand small cities getting up with larger cities, but there are smaller markets that are by them self getting upgraded before much larger markets. I would think the upgrade should happen by market size. What is kind of annoying is a small town 30 minutes from here is schedule to go live early 2013, while we will be lucky to see it by mid 2014.
  12. I do see that they have done many large population areas, but they are also a few that seem to be getting ignored Placed like Denver, Pittsburgh and Sacramento all with 2.6, 2.4, and 2.2 million people aren't on any list, while other areas with half of their population are on the list.
  13. I am very disappointed with how sprint is rolling out LTE, areas with significantly lower populations than my area are being upgraded before mines. It makes no sense at all. Areas with millions of people are being totally ignored by sprint. Both ATT and Verizon have LTE here, but we will be lucky to get it be 2014.
