Surprised?

This is the reason I'll likely leave this summer. Wimax that barely materialized and now the promise of LTE, yet NONE of the Ohio metros are even on the schedule yet. If they had working 3G, it would be a little less painful...

Same here in southern NJ. Contract up this May and they are 9% implemented with Network Vision and a target of 2014 that has been pushed back twice already. Verizon is fully rolled out here. Makes it an easy choice to switch.

They started pulling permits in Columbus and Dayton so they have started Ohio......

Two cities are hardly anything. This just shows that Spent is getting the permits. Are they actually going to get them done on time is another question. Also as far as needing a permit. That is odd since they're not really doing anything as far as "building" that would need such a thing.

Very true. The areas that Clear did deploy to are rock solid- at least in the CLE area. Clear should have just kept building out. Sprint should have off loaded them a LONG time ago and let them just start rolling things out. but the problem was the cash. But now we get to see Spent pay for the upgrades three times. First was with Xhom then Clear and now with LTE. Great job for them.

They would be better off focusing on being an MVNE than an actual retail brand. Or even a prepaid company. I know a few prepaid companies that actually have better service than Sprint and on a slower network that they built!

New electric, cabinets and antennas require permits in most localities.

Exactly regarding the permits, they had the contractor meeting in Columbus last week, Cincinnati soon and then Cleveland....Ohio is coming along nicely.....

Funny you say Cleveland because one of their most used cell site in CLE has yet to have anything done as far as plans. And it needs more than the City of Cleveland's blessing as its located at a major private university and a major nationally known hospital- and no its not CCF/Cleveland Clinic.

As far as the cities listed, CLE, and Columbus do not require such. Only building permit is if you are building a new shelter house or installing one. cabinets and antennas do not.

They need to learn from VZW about how to build out a network quick and fast.

Have a big foreign company financially backing your fast buildout? They're trying to be like Verizon.

I know when I visited case in December I had a heck of a time getting calls to stay connected. They kept dropping even with full signal. I wasn't even moving when the drops occurred.

Verizon didn't do the complete network rebuild like Sprint is doing.

Really? According to whom? Cite your source for this supposition please.

Jeez, stop over dramatizing. Xohm was deployed in Baltimore; hardly a widespread roll out. Clear wasn't just bankrolled by Sprint. Google, Intel and the Cablecos pitched in as well.

Kyle, NWOhio, hottboiinnc or whatever you're calling yourself this week...different names, same silly recycled idea that has a less than zero chance of coming to fruition.

Cleveland is on the schedule and this has been confirmed by permits Sprint has pulled as recently as the fifth of this month (02/05/2013). I would love to be able to access permits for surrounding cities but I'm stuck with very few cities actually having their permits viewable online.

Cleveland requires new permits for Electrical and Antennas.

I'm lost in how you had any problems. I've had Sprint for the past two years in Cleveland and have never dropped a single call.
