Thanks for the explanation. I will check the site on Friday ... About the install.. how long do these usually take 3-5 days ?

Most upgrades in the Seattle market are completely finished in a day. That being said, I have seen work in a tower drag on. for a few weeks.

I've seen that too , but with Sprint haven't seen how long it took here .. specially with it begin windy a lot lately..I'm sure that pushes stuff back. Those guys were on the tower all day yesterday.. so I'm expecting the added support to be done .. and if panels adds are the plan I would say today or tomorrow to add seem reasonable

Depends on if the crew doing the structural enhancements is the same crew that will do the antenna upgrades. They're often different crews.

Ya they are extremely close . And this does future proof the site .. so, my guess all it would take is a software update to turn on b26

What do you mean by future proof? This is just getting you up to speed with the rest of the country at this point. Any 5G upgrades, or additional capacity adds will still need more equipment down the line.

So long as they actually install the B26 RRUs and other related equipment, it should be a relatively quick process once they are cleared to use the spectrum. It may require a site visit to turn on, or it could be pushed via software, I'm not sure. But either way, if everything is installed now, it'll be a quick process.

Well, I would hope sprint would add the rrus since they are already working on the site ..

If the site has B26 RRUs and a capable antenna, no site visit should be necessary to turn it on. Unless they’ve done something really dumb.

When they did B26 the first time around, they installed the RRUs with the antennas, but it was some time between the original installs and when they brought B26 online. When they did, some required a site visit to install a carrier card. I would think they would install all of that now, but you never know.

Slightly off topic, but is Ericsson completely taking over the B41 rollout in their territory now? I haven't seen a new Nokia RRU in quite some time, all of the new B41 sites have been Ericsson (and they still all lack carrier aggregation).

If they're getting ready to start rolling out B26 they probably need to go install RRU's since they probably hadn't bothered, being in the IBEZ and what not.

That and/or they're adding another dual/tri-band antenna to allow for 4x4 B25 and B26.
