I have a situation with Sprint, nTelos, and signal reception. I'm wanting to join Sprint to take advantage of the new unlimited plans but apparently my part of their network isn't that good. Knowing that Boost Mobile is an MVNO for Sprint I bought a cheap Boost phone, the Kyocera Boost and took it to places where I go. I have 75% to full signal at my house and almost everywhere else I go, except work. I get about three bars in the parking lot, two at the door going inside the building, but once I get to my desk, I have zero bars or no service. I live in north central West Virginia, about an hour away from the Pennsylvania border on I-79 which puts me in nTelos land, so I don't believe anything like Network Vision will be here any time soon given how nTelos is dragging their feet with just about everything they do. On the coverage map, everywhere I go appears covered under the Sprint network. Boost Mobile is an MVNO but I'm not sure if they are treated exactly like native Sprint phones on the nTelos network, would a native Sprint phone fare any better in testing at my workplace? The phone I tested was a Kyocera Coast, which is very inexpensive, the phone I'm wanting when it comes out is the Samsung Ativ S Neo. These are two vastly different devices with different levels of quality. Would the Samsung device be better at finding a usable signal at work? If you look at a Sprint Network Vision map, upgrades happen around Pittsburgh and go south on I-79 stopping right at the WV border. Has Sprint or nTelos mentioned anything about Network Vision in this part of West Virginia?
I'm looking at putting a couple antennas in my home. I all ready have an external antenna left from the previous owner although it looks like it connected straight to a Cellular modem/router as the cable coming off it is not a standard F Connector. I'm looking to see what others have done, what equipment they're using, and their results. I think I'm gonna buy piece by piece and do the installation over a period of time. If you know of anywhere to get a good deal on antennas or boosters ect. online please pass it on hear. Thanks, Gifters
Sprint is stepping up to the plate. Nice move. http://newsroom.sprint.com/article_display.cfm?article_id=2602
