Default Official 4G/WiMAX Coverage Areas

If you want the OP updated then PM me, I can't check this thread everyday.

I think we could use this thread to keep track of 4G coverage as Sprint and Clear roll it out as well as rumored 4G spots. Here's a map and list of cities so far Clear has covered.

No problem Bill!

I looked at the big cities such as NYC and LA....they have two pages of job offereings each which probably either means A) they're just getting started and will get Wimax later than other cities or B) they're just getting started and realized this so they want to catch and surpass other cities

The SuperSonic, 4G, and a seventh Superbowl championship. Sounds good to me.

I don't see any listings or Twitter accounts Oklahoma but I would imagine in time they would get 4G as well, especially with a city like OKC.

As usual I can't get the Clear site to load (great service, terrible website) but last time I looked, it didn't even show Baltimore which was one of the first places to get Sprint's Xohm service. I beta tested it last winter and got a free laptop out of the deal so I'm pretty familiar with it. Seems like their site sucks and the whole division was kind of halfassed (even after rebranding as Clear) but the service is great. Last time I counted, they had at least 30 cities and were adding another 10-15 by year's end this year. They won't be good in the country but by starting in more densely populated areas they can reach the maximum number of people with the least towers so it only makes sense.

Although this really belongs in the Sprint forum, I'll leave it in here for the time being as a sticky since the Supersonic would be the only phone that would utilize the 4G spectrum or until someone objects to it being here.

I mentioned on another thread, that I have the Clear service in my home now for about two full weeks. I am in the Ft Worth area. I just ran a test from Speedtest.com a couple minutes ago. My download speed on two consecutive tests was over 7 Mbps and the upload speed was right at 1 Mbps. I have peaked on my download at over 9 and upload at a little over 1. I have had it as low as under 1 for my download and .5 for the upload. It is pretty consistently between the 3-6 that they advertise.

I do a test about daily just because the first week I had lots of problems. THey changed out my modem free of charge and since then I have always had five bars and consistent service.

More importantly to me, their customer service has been OUTSTANDING. I have been on the phone with them 3 times and they get 10 stars out of 10 for two of them and about 20 stars on the other. I had one tech that answered my call about an email they sent for something I needed to do with my phone service. He asked me if I was COMPLETELY satisfied and I said no becuase my wireless router was not working. He spent over an hour with me and finally got it going. It had NOTHING to do with the Clear stuff, but when I made the change to them, I was not able to get it working after, so he stayed on until we had it going. He could have easily given up, but I think he enjoyed the challenge.

So for me, that is my Clear experience. If Sprints use of this stuff is as good, I think they will have some leverage with competitors. I for one am a Sprint fan also though because of how they have done me in the Customer Service end of things, and for their lower cost plans.

Great customer service is always an asset. I've never had Sprint so I don't know about their CS but I heard it's underrated, I'm sure they'll be like the Clear experience as well especially in the beginning trying to sort out any bugs. Those speeds are impressive as well, now I really can't wait

Based on this website in Grand Rapids, Michigan, it goes to show you that there are probably many, many more cities we don't know about yet: www.ci.grand-rapids.mi.us/wireless

Thanks for keeping us informed, SoFLO.

i think CS is hit or miss with sprint, i've heard it's bad but the 2 times i've had to call in near 10 years of contract, both were quiet helpful and understanding of my situation.... i may have been lucky though idk

Make sure to add Baltimore, MD to this list. I have been using it as Xohm and later Clear for over a year here.

great job with the investigative work soFLO, not to nitpick, but the Kansas City metro area is actually considered Missouri not Kansas. Kansas City, KS is smaller than KCMO, it is considered a suburb up around here. It's really kind of funny because Sprint's World headquarters are in Overland Park, KS, but everything gets all mumbled because of the metro criss-crossing across the two states. Keep up the good work.

so I live in an area with "signal strength varies". Does this mean im screwed? I dont really mind the fact that my tiny little city will never get 4g (Charleston WV), but will I at least be be able to use the SS with decent service? I dont know anyone who has sprint personally, so I cant ask

see if you can "rent" a sprint phone to test service, just tell them you want to carry around a phone for a day to see how service is for your daily commute

Pretty sure you get a 30-day window to cancel as well. I'd just as soon wait for the release and buy it. Test it for 30 days and if it works well you can cancel the old phone. If it sucks you can return it (unless I'm mistaken).

Yea that would be ideal. Im assuming that this would still be applicable even if I were to sign up and order the phone 100% online? Just want to check

Anyone heard any rumors of Sprint bringing 4G/Wimax to Puerto Rico?

Google is my friend, but we are not that close since i was only able to find one reference to Puerto Rico and Clear Wimax.

Clear Wimax in Puerto Rico

Although, Puerto Rico does have Wimax already by another company (if not two), but Clear seems to be interested but I have yet to see anything else. I'll keep looking and if I see anything, I'll post about it.

TS

EDIT:
Okay, may not be Puerto Rico specific, but I found this online WiMAX Internet Tower finder, that offers pictures, location data, as well as a few other details of WiMAX towers. They are called TowerCO and they are the 5th largest tower company. Their WiMAX tower locator indexes towers in 47 states and Puerto Rico. The Tower Finder lets you look up WiMAX tower locations by city, state or zip code.

Check it out... TowerCO WiMAX Tower Locator

Now going back to the Puerto Rico issue, using that tower locator, there are quite a few WiMAX towers in Puerto Rico, and one of them in Carolina is owned by Sprint. So logically (but not actually) it would make sense or mean that Clear is possibly setting a foot hold in PR.

Thanks, was trying to find that article, but the one link I had found was for a paid service that wasn't giving me the full text.

Who are the Wimax companies in PR if you know? If not mistaken, Sprint bought Biva's wireless broadband if not mistaken (last year?)... not sure if this has anything to do with it's plans for Wimax in PR. There's AeroNet that also provides wireless broadband. Are these what you're referring to by any chance, I'm not an expert in the wireless scene.

I hope Detroit works out to be Detroit Metro and NOT Detroit proper.

Detroit really isn't that big.

Hopefully it will make it out to Ann Arbor.

Not sure if this was their press release linked above but this is wimax info from a corporate email to their business reps:

Quote:
. We’re Adding More 4G Markets While Competitors Scramble and Stumble
Let AT&T and Verizon yak about maps and 3G coverage, we’re moving forward with what customers want – lightening fast and uncapped 4G service.
Today, we announced seven more major markets that will see 4G in 2010: Cincinnati, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Miami, Pittsburgh, Salt Lake City and St. Louis. These cities are in addition to 4G launches for 2010 that we announced last month: Boston, Denver, Kansas City, Houston, Minneapolis, New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
We have thousands of Sprint employees in these 14 cities; now is the time for you to be 4G ambassadors to your family, friends and associates!
We’re on pace to equip an expected 120 million people by the end of the year with a mobile Internet experience that is unparalleled, especially for those using an Overdrive 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot and a Sprint 3G/4G USM Modem. We’ll soon announce many new 4G devices, including a single-mode 4G data card, embedded laptops and a 4G phone.
For those keeping score, Sprint will have more than 40 major markets with 4G service by the end of the year while Verizon is still testing LTE. And right now for AT&T and Verizon? A combined nada. Zip. Zero. Their customers can still poke along on 3G which is fine if you’ve got lots of time and do not mind waiting to access the Web while you’re on the move.

I'd be surprised to see OK get 4g any time soon. This market is a red-headed step child, despite being only 2 hours from Dallas. Also something strange: All of west texas has wimax, except the largest city in West Texas - El Paso (around 800k population.) When I was living there 2 years ago, they didn't even have Sprint EVDO service (Verizon had rev. a there, but no one else had 3g.) I don't understand it.

Did you see this article: City of Grand Rapids - 01 Wireless Home Page. There's a lot of good information and links about WiMAX and How WiMAX Works. Grand Rapids' intends to blanket the whole city with WiMAX.

Yea, I'm familiar with the plan, been following it since before the 2008 merger. We were supposed to be a test market if it werent for the iPCS issues. As of august the network was 90% finished so I'm assuming it is done now, really I'm just wondering what they are waiting for.

Maybe they're just waiting on the EVO so they can really make a big statement.

Either way I'm in for the evo. I've been looking for a good android phone and this seems to be the best. I've already sold my palm pre that way I was able to sell it while it was still worth something.

A whole bunch of South Florida locations were added to the rumored list. Although the article says the upgrades are coming I only use direct Sprint or Clearwire sources to confirm. Thanks adolan for the great info! Now I won't have to worry about a dead zone for a while

For Tampa residents, this article might be promising for 4G coverage in our area. Clearwire is part of the group to put up a tower.

Tampa OKs permit for cell tower near Sunset Park neighborhood

What is the radius that one cell tower can cover, anyway?

It's hard to say exactly what that article is about. The fight was over the height of the tower and it specifies "cell" tower. WiMAX doesn't need tall towers, but the range is only a few miles. One of the reasons WiMAX is easier to build out is because it can be installed on existing cell towers and on top of buildings. The beauty of the thing lies in the fact that overlapping WiMAX signals can enhance the power of the signal. That's why it will get better and better over time.
