Can someone me identify these tower antennas?

Recommended Posts

I believe the one on the bottom belonged to clearwire but then sprint made it work with their network. (Please do correct me if I'm wrong on that) and the top ones also belong to sprint.

Sorry for the terrible picture quality, it came off of google earth. http://tinypic.com/r/29ct0jt/9

I don't think you'll be able to see any cabinets or shacks though

Yes that is a Sprint and Clearwire colocated site. 

 

Sprints on top and old Clearwire on bottom.

 

The clearwire 2.5ghz equipment will be removed in the near future as it's redundant since Nokia has already installed their 8T8R 2.5 GHz equipment on the Sprint rack.

So does sprint use Clearwire's equipment at all? And does sprint only use cabinets or do they also use shacks sometimes as well?

Those not considered redundant yes. 

 

Vast majority are cabinets. Enclosed shacks contain the cabinets but they're generally used by ATT and VZW.

Also see commercial radio dipoles on that tower to. It is more then just a cell site.

Saw these on a tower they are actively working on. It's off apperson in Salem VA behind a Wendy's. I know for a fact US cellular is on that tower but who else?

I'm pretty confident the middle rack with the two antennas far apart is T-Mobile.

Don't know for sure, but I suspect AT&T, if only because it doesn't look like Sprint equipment (which ShenTelos would be using) and Verizon usually has more panels per sector.

    • I'm saying that, given that LTE can do so already, doing so with 5G should be a cakewalk.
    • So what your saying is that 5G technology can replace some of this at a reasonable price?

    • Satellite is less outdated than you think. ViaSat has 100 Mbps plans, albeit with a 150 GB soft cap. 50 Mbps is available for a relatively reasonable price, depending on area. Of course, there's still the speed-of-light problem. With that said, 25/3 with a 160GB cap, particularly if it's a soft cap, for like $60/mo,, would be straightforward to sling via 2.5 GHz 5G, and if advertised at all would give Sprint probablh 80% market share in anywhere that can't get cable or fiber. The number of places that can hit those speeds over DSL that can't get cable or fiber is low enough that you don't really have to worry about those folks (basically only rural telephone companies/co-ops do that).
