I doubt it. The only thing Sprint has officially said is in this link: http://newsroom.sprint.com/article_display.cfm?article_id=2482
No Denver, I would not hold your breath.
yes, I was in the sprint store in Denver to upgrade, and the manager told me to upgrade to a device that is 4g lte, at first I didnt know what lte was, then he explained it to me, I have his name and number and he confirmed that it will be a service that will be available through out denver by the end of April 2013, so I got a device that is 4g lte and took his word for it... he reconfirmed it before we walked out that door again..
Finally hopefully this manager is telling the truth about the timeline. Looking forward to end of April or beginning of May!
I hope this is true i spoke with a customer service agent lastnight and she told me denver isnt a gurantee to get the lte network.
I've found the best source of information is http://s4gru.com/. They aren't affiliated with Sprint, but they have better information that most of the customer service agents do. On the following page: http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/212-network-visionlte-deployment-running-list/ they list Colorado as a 4th quarter 2013 completion with no construction yet.
On the other hand, I've noticed that most of the cell sites around me are now showing eHRDP service, which is a precursor to the LTE buildout.
It seems that most of the regions have taken between 4 and 6 months to compete; since nothing has been started in Colorado as of Jan 17 2013, don't count on LTE to begin to show up til mid Summer, with completion by the end of 2013.
These are my best guesses based on reading lots of blogs, I'm not affiliated with Sprint, but I do live in Denver Metro and have an LTE phone.
s4gru.com has confirmed that Samsung (who has the contract for Colorado) has started working on Network vision in Colorado. http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/2824-paonia-colorado/page__view__findpost__p__79597
I have read multiple places that Samsung is ahead of schedule. Who knows when LTE will launch, but we'll likely have some before summer. Now, I only need to get a phone that supports LTE. Here is the thread for the Denver market: http://s4gru.com/index.php?/topic/2172-network-visionlte-colorado-market-denvercolo-springsgrand-jct...
Does the Centennial area count for LTE coverage "around" Denver? Look for that purple spot, and keep zooming in.
Funny how the Sprint Call Center has LTE in Denver, apparently off Inverness Dr S near 25 & 470.
Does matter what they tell you when it is to be ready, it will be a lie just like everything else they tell you. All they want is your cash, and it doesn't matter to them what they lie about to get it. I was ready to move to some one that already had LTE service here, and their employee, not a partner employee said Denver would have it my the end of March, now they are saying they don't know when this will happen. I was stupid enough to believe them so I upgraded my phone and extended my contract. So March has come and gone and no LTE service, now they have no ideas of when other than it will be at the end of the project. Another lie told I would be able to keep my discount, even thou I don't remember how I got it in the first place but it was a company discount. Well screwed again by Sprint did not get to keep the discount either. Anyone not yet a Sprint customer stay away service sux in Denver calls drop constantly, and they lie. I wish I would have been smarter.
Looks like part of the North East side of Denver Area is seeing signal. Anyone in the Denver area, download Sensorly and start mapping, see what can be seen.
Yeah, the first tower with LTE was just accepted. See the post on s4gru.com: Network Vision/LTE - Colorado Market (Denver/Colo Springs/Grand Jct) - Sprint 4G Rollout Updates - P...
Now, this doesn't mean LTE is going to just start rapidly appearing everywhere. It will likely take a while for other towers to get completed and come online. It could be just a week...or many weeks. But that's a good sign that progress is being made.
Yep, you should probably start seeing a trickle affect in the coming weeks and months like we did in the Los Angeles area. Started out slow, here and there over the course of a few months, then started popping up daily. Here's hoping it goes smoothly for you guys.
I don't live in Denver, but I saw this article recently. Sprint has apparently confirmed LTE is being built right now, and it's doing a "from an outside-in" strategy. Here's the article:
