Finally! Glad to see its finally starting. I can't wait for Sprint to fill in all of 58 between Bakersfield and Barstow with native service and LTE!

There is no Sprint equipment in any of those pictures. First set of Antennas are old nextel iDen and the second set are ATTs. 

 

Sprints equipment would be the Samsung ones in my signature.

Well then it must be the Third tower next to it that I did not get a photo of because of the first photo showing Sprint on the box & not Nextel/Sprint & I know that the other was At&t yet don't know if that was for back haul or just for At&t only will get better pix in the morning if it is no longer raining thanx for the heads up

The tri-towers at the 99 - E 58 junction! The only WiMax tower in Bakersfield is on one of those towers. Nice to see Band 41 LTE too now.

That tower must be in a good location because it covers a nice chunk.

I checked the coverage map again too and yes it seems like to be one. I always connect to that tower when I fuel at Costco.

Protection site. Meant to cover lots of ground. I think Costco is about 1 1/2 miles from the mentioned cell site.

Any clue what type of equipment they use on that site? Can this site be integrated into B41?

Pretty sure the Wimax stuff is Huawei. That site has (Samsung) B41 gear, as pictured above.

    • Friday morning I called support again.  After a 15 minute call, the final resolution was "you do not have Extended LTE because you have exceeded your 100mb roaming limit."  I knew this was the wrong answer, so i decided to make a nuisance of myself. I continued to call customer support over the next half of the day whenever I had the chance. I was always presented with either the "exceeded roaming limit" answer or I was told "there was a tower down" and that I should call back in about a week. I was always polite and patient, and I feel I educated several reps as to what Extended LTE is because most seemed to have no idea. I must have called a dozen times. Then Friday afternoon I received a call from someone at the OKC support center, asking what the problem was. They called me!  Now this was different i thought to myself.   I explained that none of my lines were no longer connecting to Extended LTE, specifically B12 via Appalachian wireless on any of their towers (this was what I had been telling support reps all day). She said "That's strange. Let me send this upstairs, and I will call you back when I find something out." Upstairs?  They have an upstairs!? This was great! Within 2 hours all of my lines had Extended LTE again. Problem solved. However I have no idea what the problem was.  Moral of the story: If you do not get resolution on a support issue, call support repeatedly until someone that doesn't have to follow a script notices you?
