HILLLDYS1,

Thanks for reaching out to us. We have recently started to add LTE service in the Phoenix area. Over the coming weeks and months you should start to notice LTE in certain areas of Phoenix while our Network teams are testing and tuning towers that have had LTE added to them.

To see what's taking place in your area; can you please provide your zip code and cross streets there?

Re: 4g/4g lte coverage in Phoenix

I was about fed up with Sprint until yesterday. I use my phone 100% of the day, and I need high speed data everywhere I go. I was willing to even pay the ETF as I don't have much longer in my contract, and TMobile was offering me a great deal. I just wanted 4G LTE like everyone else was had. Even Cricket has 4G LTE!

However, earlier this week, I was on the I-10 westbound heading to the far west valley, and I had 4G LTE from 7th street until all the way to 83rd avenue. Lo and Behold, there is a hope for Sprint. But, I was driving and I didn't want to capture my screen while occupied.

Then yesterday, I was at the Denny's on 67th avenue and the I-10, and the screen shot below tells the whole story. And I will tell you, their 4G LTE was fast.  Then I drove home and it went back to 3G. So, there you have it. Maybe not too long, we too will come out of the dark ages! Phone is a Samsung GS3.

Delta_Astro,

Thanks for posting regarding your experience with LTE. Our Network teams are working diligently to expand our LTE footprint for our customer throughout the country, If you would like to provide the zip code and cross streets for your home location, I would be happy to check to see if the towers there are scheduled for upgrades as of yet?

I was driving on the 101 between Ray and Warner, in Chandler, when I noticed 4G light up on my Galaxy S3.  It appears Sprint is indeed rolling 4G out in the Phoenix Metropolitan area.

Thanks for that update as well, and we're happy to see that you're also receiving some LTE coverage at this time in the Phoenix Metropolitan area. Over the coming weeks and months, our Network teams will be adding additional LTE coverage there for more availability.

So how much longer before we can truly see some 4g in the east valley? Like in the zip code of 85008?

alberto.lopez718,

Thanks for the question. "718" sounds like you hale from the NYC area? In the zip code of 85008, all towers are scheduled for Network Vision upgrades to start within the next 90 days initially, for network improvements, and will receive LTE upgrades within 180 days.
