Is this the same equipment that they used on the pico site that was accepted in San Diego?

The first time I see one of these one of the things in the wild I'm going to be like a tween meeting Taylor Swift in person. I hope my wife is not in the car with me when it happens, she already thinks my Sprint obsession is borderline freakish.

Is this what I should expect my GMO site to be converted with? Currently my closest tower is inside the tiny little cross structure on the right.

No, small cells are for dense areas to provide capacity. Your GMO site is a macro site with macro equipment.

Are these going to be deployed in regions just like the tower equipment?

Spotted these 2 pico cell deployments in the Shentel Market. One has just two B25 antennas, the other, also has a CDMA omnidirectional antenna on top of the pole. I'm going to try to get a couple more pics when I have a chance. 

 

Are these the first to be seen in the "wild"?

Yar!

 

Sprint Corp. small cells only exist in FITs until general deployment that starts in a few weeks but Shentel does their own thing so... :D

The one in Toms Brook has been up for a few months. The one in Woodstock I just spotted about a month ago. Had I known these are the first known to exist anywhere, I would have posted sooner. 

 

Robert already changed the one in the map to 3G/4G in a message I sent him a while back. Is there any way to add this new one to the map as 4G only?

Is this any better? ;)

I took it using my Note 4 through a pair of binoculars.

 

Edit: It lost a little quality on the upload but the ID on the panel is WA14SH907.

They've been testing ALU and STA PCS small cells since 2013 and have deployed a few but they're not very widespread. Take pictures of it, have proof that it is actually broadcasting for Sprint (engineering screens -80 or better), and a location like coordinates (lat/long) then send it to Robert.

What was the real world range on that thing?

Maybe 300 yards then it switches to a macro site.

    • I believe it will be located at the Downtown Clearwire Substantial Service Site.  But it has not been formally sited yet.  Just in early planning.  It might not even be developed.




    • I gotcha. And you don’t know where exactly the sites are going to be ? I was hoping they would at least blanket Marquette MI since my girlfriend goes up there to see her friends sometimes and gets extended 3G on her phone while in town. I’m hopping they at least coverage Marquette

    • So far no luck with my Note 5, think the damn things is dead. Just went out and got the Samsung Wireless Charging Stand for $60 and the lights indicate it's charging on the pad but I don't see the phone charging, S8+ charges fine on it. Gonna let it sit on here a bit and hope it turns on and was just really dead from sitting a few months. If not I may just toss it off a bridge I'm pissed.
    • Yeah, I've been experiencing similar issues, especially with B41. The device is constantly switching to different bands in strong B41 signal areas. At times I've lost LTE all together, it almost seems like it doesn't know what to do lol. I tried the Z2 for a few days before I decided to switch back to Sprint and the difference between the two, RF wise is like night and day. I decided over the V30 figuring it would be equal or close to the Z2 RF wise, but so far it hasn't. I'm talking about a solid 10 dbms better in signal. Very disappointing. I think I rather have the Z2 Force although it doesn't have 4XCA and 2xCA on upload but it holds a great signal, aside from the fact that it is cheaper than the V30.
