"Sprint has said that it plans to launch its LTE network by the middle of this year and be mostly finished with the rollout by 2013, but so far the carrier has only revealed a handful of markets that'll be part of its initial LTE push. If you're interested in finding out if Sprint plans to bring its LTE coverage to your neck of the woods, crane your eyes up to the image above. That's a slide from a presentation given by a Sprint executive at a recent Rural Cellular Association event, showing the LTE coverage that Sprint plans to have by the time that it wraps up its Network Vision project in 2014. The green areas you see are where Sprint will have its LTE coverage rolled out. The blue areas, meanwhile, will be covered by roaming agreements.
The only markets that Sprint has said it'll be rolling LTE coverage to so far are Atlanta, Baltimore, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City and San Antonio, so this map is nice for folks not in those cities that have been wondering if Sprint's LTE network will be making its way to their part of the country. Of course, we don't have an exact list of markets that'll be receiving Sprint LTE coverage or when different cities will be joining the fold, but hey, this isn't a bad start. Does it look like the area where you live will be part of Sprint's LTE network?"
If anybody is interested in getting info on Sprint Network Vision LTE they can get on to this site http://www.sprint.com/landings/lte/index.html?ECID=vanity:lte and if you want to get notified about LTE future coverage’s use this link http://www.sprint.com/landings/lte/index.html?ECID=vanity:lte#notify
Is this an April Fool's joke or just several weird things about that map?
First, the link doesn't work unless you delete the last http//
Second, Sprint needs to fire their map maker. Why are there no traditional state boundaries? Post apocalyptic maps since NV won't be complete until after the end of the world? I know where I live, but certainly can't fine it on that map.
Third, what's with the photoshopped white square covering the map key and northern Michigan? Somebody didn't want us reading the rest of the map. Weird...
http://slumz.boxden.com/f244/sprints-lte-network-rollout-dates-1758586/ The link above show the 1st rollout expected for June 2012 which is about 14-18 market areas and then by December 2012 an additional 25 or so areas. Total claim is set to around 46 to 52 market areas by the end of the year. That is a much better pace then what was initially laid out by the 4g Wimax rollout. It sucks that Sprint was dependent on Clearwire for the rollout. At least this rollout is all in Sprint's hands hopefully the have a smoother rollout. But from the looks of it Clearwire didn't get their own clients as they were hoping and I think that is what stopped Clearwire's expansion. So now Sprint finally figured time to close iden Nextel and switch to LTE to get things going right.
