Could you expand on what you mean by "Sprint added full build to the site but choose [sic] to turn on mini Macro..." 

Sprint added a full build running additional panels but it’s only running mini macros

Where did they add a full build? When you say it's only running mini macros, you mean for B41. B25 is online also yes?

Yes it’s running 2xca mini macros like on sites where they just added a rru, but this happens to be a full build

That is a mini-macro. Still not clear what you mean when you say it is "just doing mini macro."

I'm not sure what the confusion is then.

You have a mini macro on macro deployment there. Is there something unique about it that should be talked a out?

Well sprint has been back to the site twice .. I thought by now it should be running 3xca using beam forming

Specially since part of the sector is the only other site that covers part of downtown

Mini-macros can't do 3xCA, I don't think those are 8T8R antennas so beam forming probably isn't an option either.

This site is clearly a macro site (note the B25 NV antenna) with B41 mini-macros added. That is why I was confused when you said it was "just doing mini macro," because that is not an accurate description.

Does anyone have Tmobile?  I am thinking of switching as I travel a lot on I40 west to Arizona and the service is just terrible.

There is a tower in Window Rock but Sprint confirmed for me today there are no planned upgrades to the tower for the next 6 months.  It still has not been upgraded from legacy equipment.

I have a T-Mobile Note8 and it’s fairly unreliable through there. You get LTE in the towns but between them it’s nothing. (Like emergency calls only/no service nothing) I don’t remember exactly compared to Sprint however.

Ok not an option. I’ll have to look at att and Verizon.

And Sprint roams on carriers in that area.  Like Commnet and Verizon.  T-Mobile is worthless in Northern AZ when not on a native signal.

I’m happy that sprint keeps in-market and domestic roaming so open. I rarely, if ever see ‘no service’ :)

I just hope Sprint can expand coverage to att/VZW roaming areas.

That’s my thing. My ip7 did roam on band 17. My ipX will not connect. Always falls back to dead 3g

I believe it, the average has increased completely. According to the RootMetrics 2H17 ABQ report, "Sprint's median download speed increased from 1.6 Mbps to 7.1 Mbps." Also considering most GMOs in the state have LTE turned on now, the entire market has improved in the past 6 months or so.

That is good to see ..so the push that is coming soon .. should put Albuquerque over top and sprint may surpass one of the competitors

Does it have B41 yet? Or higher FDD if possible?

    • Those FCC docs are all in place to "sell" the idea of the merger. So you better believe they are over blowing all of Sprint's inadequacies (and T-mobile's for that matter) There's no question that they can both go at it alone (T-mobile especially) it would just not be nearly as fruitful from a business stand point. 
    • I'm still waiting for my notification, I can't wait.  I've used a bunch of 3rd party apps for this, but nothing was "silver bullet" Did you get a Messages upgrade?  Wondering if the version i have is compatible.  I'm on 3.3.044
    • It was honestly shocking to see Sprint officially put in writing what my suspicions have been in terms of their network plans and business sustainability going forward. Marcelo put a pretty face on it for a long time in terms of a “five year turnaround” plan, but it’s now clear that the marketing and messaging around that was to buy time/room to get to this point in time for a merger to happen. The stuff/figures in the redacted portions of the FCC Filing must also present a pretty bleak picture on Sprint, if the unredacted text reads as is.
    • Could be with M-MIMO equipment being tested. But most likely an event going on.  Try to get a closer shot of the rear and connectors.
    • Didn't think it was sprint. And I haven't noticed any other equipment present in the area but I'll walk around lunch time to see if there is anything else.  I'm still connected to the standard Clear B41 site. could it be possible they are replacing it and wanted to have a back up solution to pick up the weight of the tower being offline?
