    In about one month or less Sprint will finally get the T-Mobile/Cingular type of street level coverage maps according to sources inside Sprint.

    Finally! Though I can tell you most of the coverage area in the San Fernando Valley and Santa Clarita off the top of my head :wink: :wink:

    Speaking of Santa Clarita I hear Sprint finally added a new site near Valencia Blvd and the 5 freeway. That area has suffered from poor indoor coverage for years.

    WOW! Thanks for the info Larry :) I've been wondering when something like this would become available for Sprint users. Seems like their coverage maps have always been lacking in some way IMO. T-Mobile has had this type of map for quite some time now, wonder what's been stopping Sprint?

    Sprint put out those tower location maps instead but those turned out to be not very useful and plus they rarely ever updated them.

    It baffles me why they wouldn't update them. Honestly...because isn't there ALWAYS something to update?

    Updating these maps (which sprint even wrongly has it labelled as "wi-fi maps" would cost money and make customers like me happy. Sprint isnt in to that very much.

    Yes. New towers are added at least every month in just about every major metro area. So the maps should be updated about once a month. The last update came in March 2005.

    What else would be nice is if they also show future coverage improvement locations as well. But we can't everything can we? ;)

    HA! Most definietely not. I do however throughly enjoy Cingular and T-Mobile's coverage maps. I hope Sprint doesn't crap out on us and make ours somehow inferior :-D. Optimism..no? :-D

    do you know if Sprint will make them decent right away or are they gonna be like Cingular's where City and closer are gonna be bad until they get field agents to actually test the coverage.....

    do you know what the companies could do.......the could give "compensation to people like us who actually enjoy doing something like this.......paying us to drive around and test out coverage and give them details to make their map better.....Cingular could definitely use it....

    im not sure how Sprint's maps are gonna turn out so we'll see when theyre here ;)

    They're supposed to be more like T-Mobile's street level maps. Cingular's look overly optimistic.

    That's good news. Wouldn't it be great if they were overlayed with Google Earth? Then one could get a feeling of mountain or building structure interference!

    That's good that they are also releasing the iDEN maps at the same time. It will be nice to compare both networks' street level maps in areas both cover and see the differences.

    This will be excellent when they add the street level maps, I would then be able to see how coverage would be, since I have been thinking about porting over, and if it's like T-Mobiles then it would really be a bonus.

    Thanks for the update Larry & can't wait to hear when it's been implemented.
