HTC EVO 4G / Sprint 4G Coverage Map Due Out Tomorrow
Hopefully out tomorrow. Hopefully, they promised this before.
They are also claiming the 19 markets announced as up and coming will go live by the second week of June..
Add a whole lot of grains of salt with that..
That actually made my stomach turn.
LOL thats including the ones that are active now I think that will make a total of 52 markets live..
I'm PRAYING Denver,CO is one of the markets.
Will Orlando, FL be available?
lol I like salt.
So its 19 markets other than the ones that we know of. cool
Please have the OC live!!!! lol
NO sorry for the confusion. They have listed 19 NEW markets to date that were up and coming.. Those are suppose to launch by the second week of June..
New York and LA were suppose to be late July early August but have been fast tracked no completion/launch date yet.. The OC will be part of that roll out
Also the Old Sprint IPCS stuck on 1x and no EVDO are being updated as well
I think Tampa, Orlando and Jax are included in that launch.. I am going from memory here..
To be honest I think they are going to be a lot more than anticipated..
The original time line was 90 days. about 1 month ago
Are you saying that Florida will have 4G second week of June?
Any info on Miami/Ft Lauderdale ?
Man if Columbus, OH ain't on that list I'ma bust an artery.. I mean they got Cincinnatti and Cleveland and not Columbus?? Considering this is also Verizon's 4G test city - you'd think they'd want to pimp they're 4G here early to make sure no one goes over to LTE.
I Live in Columbus and I am waiting as well. Im looking at this phone as a 3g only because I don't have faith we will get it.
A few cities are suppose to not sure if all of them announced will be..
I guess if Sprint puts up a map tomorrow everyone should have a clue of coverage areas
Just went out to 2 sprint stores, 2 mall box sprint huts, and a clearwire mall hut. All of the sprint places said that wimax is currently active here where I live, Springfield, OR., more specifically the Thurston area. With that info I went to the clearwire mall hut and talked to them and was told that they were not officially rolled out with wimax until July 1. I asked if he had a map for that and he showed me a "secret" map that has my house smack dab in the middle of the coverage at this end of town!!! YIPEEEE for wimax. Anybody else in the Springfield area with any more info?
is that map on the link supposed to be the new coverage?
Tomorrow it will be new.
I ran into a Sprint rep last Friday at a Radio Shack in Jax.who was getting a 4G signal on her EVO. She said it had been in and out that day but it ripped when it was up. Must be getting close!
First, this is almost entirely unreliable because it comes from the mouth of a Best Buy mobile manager (just one level up in the reliability scale from a Sprint store manager). However, I was told that he discussed with the Sprint regional rep how far the 4G coverage would go in the L.A. market. He stated that the coverage would extend at roll-out to include Santa Ana. Unfortunately, he didn't mention Anaheim, but we are getting close.
We laughed at the Sprint rep statement because the Sprint Western Regional Headquarters is in Irvine, a city that borders Santa Ana. I mean, if they are going as far as Santa Ana, OC, why wouldn't they include the city they have the Western headquarters located?
IWill cover Irvine according to this article. Hopefully not too far away.
