Sprint/Roaming partner coverage in Alaska

Anyone know what the Sprint coverage is in the Anchorage, Alaska area. I am going to vist family there and wanering what coverage is like for mainly voice, but also for text and data coverage. Basically between Anchorage and Wasilla, as well as maybe even down to the Kenai area.

Sprint/Roaming partner coverage in Alaska

We have a preferred roaming agreement in Alaska and your phone will say Sprint and the minutes count as regular minutes not roaming minutes.  If you look at map at coverage.sprint.com you can see where coverage is.  It looks like there is decent coverage as long as you aren't too far off the beaten path.

How good is the 3G coverage up there and do you have plans for adding stores up there?

The coverage looks fairly good and I have spoken with people on inbound calls to resolve issues when they are having problems so I know we have customers.  I have no idea on adding stores, sorry.
