About Sprint Cellular Coverage

Sprint Nextel is the 3rd largest network in the US, after Verizon and AT&T. Their standard combined 2G/3G network can reach more than 275 million people nationwide. Sprint initially began its 4G roll-out using Wimax, which left it behind the other major carriers as 4G LTE technology was soon recognised as superior. Sprint began their 4G LTE roll-out in April 2012 and it covers 110 markets as of June 2013.

What you can do about poor Sprint signal

You have a few options available to your to improve your Sprint signal:

  • Try one of their femtocells. Sprint have a device called the Airave, which is a femtocell for the Sprint network. A femtocell is a mini cell tower, which uses your broadband internet connection to produce cell phone signal.
  • Try a cellular repeater. A cellular repeater takes existing signal, amplifies it and rebroadcasts it around your home or office. They are harder to setup than a femtocell, but will cover all US networks, both voice and 3G.
  • Change networks. Sprint customers at the end of their contract can take their phone to other CDMA carriers like Verizon. Nextel customers are out of luck - theirs is the only iDEN network and as it's being phased out it's not going to get better. However Sprint are launching a push-to-talk service on their CDMA network late 2011, which will offer an improved service.
