Nextel Site Shows Timing of iDEN Network Tower Reductions
Feb 6, 2012, 2:01 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Sprint Nextel has published a web site that allows customers to see approximately when iDEN services will be reduced in their local market. Using the tool, for example, Nextel shows that it will reduce the number of iDEN cell towers in Seattle in mid-April, while San Francisco's towers will be reduced in late-April, New York City's towers will be reduced in late-May, and Miami's towers will be reduced in mid-June. According to the site, iDEN service will not be discontinued entirely with these tower reductions and Sprint's CDMA coverage will not change due to these actions. Sprint is in the middle of its Network Vision project, which will have it refarming some of its 800MHz iDEN spectrum for use with its CDMA voice network.
