4G LTE rollout & bad coverage

Joe-WC4R Regular Visitor

The 4G-LTE rollout dates have been delayed by 3 months in southeast Virginia now according to http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/212-network-visionlte-deployment-running-list/

Norfolk* (Hampton Roads/Tidewater)

...Sites Complete = 4%; Anticipated LTE Launch= Spring 2013

...Original Scheduled Completion = February 2013; Current Production Rate Completion = June 2013

Completion date was December 2012.

Additionally, this region (largest in VA), has been plagued with poor coverage for years now. Proof can be seen at www.cellumap.com and www.rootmetrics.com. Attched is a map of actual user coverage vs. Sprint's claimed coverage as of 1/5/2013. Sprint's map also shows NO towers have been errectewd to date!

I have been a good customer for 3 years with mutiple lines. Obviously I am way too patient. I can get no technically acurate or honest answer from anyone I have contacted at Sprint. Politicians are one bad animal, but Sprint sounds like they have from the best of the "smoke & mirror" group.
