Network Vision Network Flop

So not only has Sprint lied about how vast the LTE coverage would be, but they lied about how many people it would cover.

Looking at their Network Vision Maps when they proposed the idea, and promised capacity, coverage, and increase in call completion and data speeds, to now and the current maps - I see a huge lack of breadth of coverage, not to mention a very small LTE coverage area in the places they claimed they really were going to succeed. On top of all this, even in areas where they have deployed LTE, the signal levels are weak, and capacity low, culminating in a horrible user experience for its customers, often flipping back to 3G - which by the way has not seen increases in capacity or data speed with Network Vision, but in fact...

Congratulations, you're the 1,000,000th person on here who has made the same prediction about Sprint's inevitable and soon demise, since 2006.

When you say, "Sprint's coverage sucks in comparison to AT&T and Verizon," I assume that you are referring to native network and/or 4G coverage. The reason I assume that is their voice coverage, with roaming included, is actually larger.

As someone who owns a cellphone for the reason it was originally created, I'm more concerned about having a carrier that allows me access to emergency services if my car is stranded in the middle of nowhere. While Sprint has increased its footprint via roaming agreements, Verizon and AT&T have actually dialed theirs back -- in favor of building more native coverage.

So, the next time your in place like Tellico Plains with a flat, where the Big Two have almost no coverage, you can enjoy your hike down...

No I might be a fraction of the people who are not complaining. It works for me. I travel 1 hour back and forth to work everyday Texas I35 through Austin and it's perfect. I feel bad for everyone else who's had those horror stories. No reason to change..... Yet....
