Re: Sprint 4G LTE Deployment Running List

I live in Vegas and have lte now --- yep. I use a vzw jetpack and wifi my sprint phone. how rediculous is that?

I'm starting to worry about sprint falling so far behind. I was out last night and my phone was useless due to lack of coverage on Fremont St --- but my friend who carries vzw and t-mobe didn't have any issues at all.

Re: Sprint 4G LTE Deployment Running List

I figured people are probably pretty curious about whats happening with LTE in their area lol If you want to help map 3G & 4G in your area, go to http://www.sensorly.com/downloads . You can see actual network coverage strengh in your area and help map new coverage.

Re: Sprint 4G LTE Deployment Running List

Re: Sprint 4G LTE Deployment Running List

No new updates right now. The 29th is the latest. Robert usually updates every 2-3 weeks though give or take. Sprint didnt like me including the link to there the last time I posted so I had to remove it.

GrandMaster

Re: Sprint 4G LTE Deployment Running List

usually as long as you throw in a disclaimer that they are in no way or form a part of sprint and that dates posted may or not be correct and can change at any time due to unforseen delays or zombies they wont mind..i do it all the time.

they only get mad when you DONT include the disclaimer lol

Re: Sprint 4G LTE Deployment Running List

Wow....so Orange County will have gimped service until at least the end of the year???? It's one thing to run behind on your 4g updates, but the 3g and basic cell signal are all over the place....and usually on the lower end. Guess I'll have to use your estimates to discuss my own lower monthly fee estimates. NO way anyone should pay full price for this heavily gimped service.

Re: Sprint 4G LTE Deployment Running List

@KHAMILTON1957.........interesting site. It's way off in the Playa Del Rey, CA area. I was there this past weekend, there was absolutely zero signal over much of the area. I even restarted my phone. Couldn't do a thing......

Interesting how the coverage map is impressive from a distance......but once you zoom in, there's limited coverage. At least with 4g which hugs streets. Sadly it seems my girlfriend's house is dead center of a two block square 3g dead zone.....

GrandMaster

Re: Sprint 4G LTE Deployment Running List

it means completion will be by the end of this year..not that it will be started by then...usually theyre hitting roughly 10-15% before they light up the towers..

im also not seeing Playa Del Rey anywhere on the list

along with the 4G they are deploying its also replacing out all the old 3G and voice equipment..

Re: Sprint 4G LTE Deployment Running List

@ fireguy.....

I'm not so concerned about the 4g at this point, as nice as it would be to have consistant coverage and proper speeds.

3g is near dead in many areas. I had a 8meg app update take 2 hours+ to download last week. In that time I traveled 15 from work to home, with no change in speeds. I've seen this numerous times, and just tired of paying for extremely gimped service....especially when said service also kills my battery (i have to charge numerous times a day)!!
