    I thought theses maps that S4GRU produced were pretty good. These maps show the sites that are scheduled to be upgraded in June alone. I guess the reason I was impressed was the fact that there are approximately the same number of sites scheduled to be upgraded this month alone as were done in the first 5 months. Obviously things are really starting to accelerate.

    can anyone .. confirm in Dallas Ft Worth area???

    is LTE up? and has it affected the 3G speeds yet? better coverage and speeds on 3G?

    same with wimax? they said it would also improve wimax.

    I'm pretty sure they are done with WiMax.. both expansion and improvements. Everything going forward will be 4G LTE, at least thats my understanding from all I've read. Most of the new equipment (LTE) on the towers are being "blocked" as of right now.

    yes.. i know that wimax is not being expanding or added ... will shut down in 2 yrs.

    but.. i have read that the new Vision upgrade would benefit all sprint networks tech.. including wimax. pertaining to coverage area and speed. so where they have current wimax coverage.. there will be less holes.

    Yes, Network Vision will improve all aspects of Sprint's network. Network Vision primarily deals with upgrading Sprints 3G and 4G LTE network. It will have no effect on WiMax, as that is technically Clear's network.

    Port Orchard, WA. Very spotty 4G service. The Cities around me are the same way as well. Even when I go to Seattle I find that the 4G coverage isn't the greatest, but still more functional then when I'm at home. However, when I do have it, damn do I LOVE it. :)

    Frustrated about San Antonio not having LTE yet! Anxiously waiting....
    I follow Inside Sprint Now wordpress webpage for updates.

    Can't post links yet, but google "insidesprintnow wordpress" and this "insider" has been offering great news and updates on everything Sprint. :D

    Sprints official word is still midsummer... And that's only for the first markets. I should be seeing it sometime in November for Minneapolis

    Also, Sprints website has been "under construction" all day.. I cant help but wonder if this has to do with LTE updates/coverage info. Here's hoping!

    Pretty decent coverage around central Orange county, CA. Excellent coverage in Tustin. I also get spotty coverage at work at the 15 and 60 interchange in Mira Loma. It seems to be a fringe area between two towers at work.

    I was told by an account manager 2 weeks ago and a customer service rep that LTE will go live on 07/25/12 in Los Angeles.

    Chat from today.

    Customer: Hi, I was told by a Sprint account manager that 4g LTE would launch at the end of July 2012. Can this be confirmed? My contract is up and this will help me decide to stay with Sprint.



    Casey S: Let me check this for you.



    Customer: thank you...he said around 07/26/12 it would go live in the Los Angeles area



    Casey S: One moment please.



    Casey S: Please confirm me your area zip code.



    Customer: 91342 & 91355



    Customer: the second is my work zip code



    Casey S: The expected time to upgrade the tower in your area to 4G LTE is 07/25/2012 19:00:00 CST .



    Customer: do you mean the first area code of 91342? Will be active then? What about 91355?



    Casey S: I am sorry there is no update about your work area zip code.



    Casey S: However your home address will get the 4G LTE service expected by 4G LTE is 07/25/2012 19:00:00 CST

    Our friends over at the 4g update site are guessing more like September for launch but it has not been officially announced.
