You do enough to respond troll.

Rants will not be accepted here, nor telling other members that they are trolls sprint.com is the best way to go if you must express the way you feel about sprint as this is not sprint and will not get you no where.

We have photos in the Sponsor forums of an East Michigan site with new panels, RRUs and Verizon fibre flags for under ground wiring. Work is occurring in Michigan

So I get kinda bored at work driving around Detroit all day. So when I see a tower being worked on and the guys doing it are having a union smoke I ask who the work is for and all of them that I have spoke to say LTE for T-Mobile. Which from what they tel me is being deployed start of 2013. I will still be keeping an eye out, and I know it hasnt been announced by sprint and idk if its been announced here I'm kinda new

Next time you see some Tmo LTE work, take a picture and post it. They initially were planning panels with integrated radios for their LTE network. I would love to see them. It's network nerd porn. :)

All,

 

Saw this tower being worked on not sure if it's a sprint one or not here are some pictures I snapped and I hope linking to the pics in a dummy Photobucket acct is the best way to do it.

It's hard to tell in the photos, especially being viewed on my phone, but it almost looks like they are moving legacy panels on the bottom rack to make room for NV panels. Are you going to be back by this site in a few days to take some more photos? We should be able to tell for certain in a few more days.

This is like a minute from my house and I drive by it everyday going to work. I'lll see what I can do to get better shots of the tower and the base equipment. There was a truck loading facility on the back side I bet I could go in there a get a shot of the tower with out the trees as well.

Here is the picture of the antennas and the base of the T-Mobile site from yesterday Robert

Sorry the base picture is a little blurry the rain started to really come down. Ill keep a lookout for sprint work and try to get a better shot of the tmobile antennas when they are on the ground at a different place. I run into T-Mobile sites being worked on about once a week.

All,

 

Here are a few more towers in my area....looks like most in my area are ATT. I'm curious as to who owns the cell tower sites in pictures 30,29,28...etc

I tried to find some of the towers based of this map.

https://network.sprint.com/search/48122/

I believe the pictures below are from the tower on fort st between West Outer Drive and Southfield (it's kind of a sketcy area) The panels are on the towers and if you look theres actually two sets one set above the other on the building.

I'm up visiting in the Detroit area for a couple days. Was driving through Westland on my way to Pinckney and spotted some tower dogs on the tower on Ford Rd in Westland to the Police station. I saw then up on what looked like the Sprint array of antennas installing panels and RRUs. Will have to get a better look before upgrading back home. It's a central site for the city and RF signal showed I was connected to that tower.

Are you talking about the tower between westland pd and the court building? If so last I knew that tower was only for the western wayne county trs system. There is a tower close to that area ive just never have known who's tower it was. I could always be wrong but I havnt driven by westland pd for months now.

Here's a few more tower pics with site names if someone wants to dig through and see if I got lucky and got any sprint sites.

http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00188.jpg <- this tower is right at the I-75 to 696 interchange and on google earth you can see they were still building the site.

http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o795/obas2/12-5-12/CAM00190.jpg <- This site they were working on the same time work was being done at the ATT site a few days ago. Maybe both ATT towers. I can't get to this one

The one at 75 and 696 is a mspc tower for the state. I believe it is part of the state radio system. There are also to mdot cameras on it. The way the antennas look its for the 800 mhz P25 radios. Everytime I drive by it I get a very strong signal on my scanner. But do not quote me about the antennas. I know more about piblic safety radios and scanners then cell phones.

Interesting...that would explain why everyday when I'm merging from 696 to southbound I-75 my radar detector goes crazy. What you say above now makes sense and correlates with my Radar detector :)

Yes, right by the courthouse there, the big tower. They lease out space on it and there is a Sprint antenna array on there. As I said, I hope to get another look at it tomorrow if I can. I'm only in town for a couple of days.
