Guys,
The deployment schedule is not so much infuenced by population but rather the equipment in the network at those locations. For example, Sprint does not build all of the gear that is in the cell-sites...there are 3 main vendors for that (I will leave off the names) So, Vendor "M" may have Chicago, but are not able to provide the upgrade to Rev A right now....but Vendor "L" may be ready to go in Milwaukee. Don't get too upset about the schedule, one of Sprint's highest priorities is to get REV A up EVERYWHERE as fast as possible. But it is far more complicated then installing a card and flipping a switch.
