With a triband antenna. 

 

I was wondering. That's a weird route to go? I don't see another PCS RRU unless they're not done.

Are you going to hit all the towers that had permits today?

Yup! Alabama is still a no go ... stonewall is preparing for b41 ... constitution is a no go ....mesa is also still a no go although I saw people at the site today

That's not what I meant. With a second PCS capable antennas (tri-band in this case) you would expect to see two PCS RRUs per sector. So 6 in total.

Wouldn't that be a typical setup of sites broadcasting B25/B26/1x800/cdma?

NO.... PCS RRU. In your area, since 1x800/B26 isn't possible each site has one antenna and one RRU per sector. A site that has a second antenna that is PCS capable (tri-band) I would expect to see a second PCS RRU on each sector. I do not see that. There is a B41 Mini-Macro, but no second PCS RRU. 

 

A site outside of the IBEZ has one antennas plus 1 PCS RRU and 1 SMR RRU (plus any B41 equipment).

Yeah.  It looks like the site is planned for a 4x4 PCS upgrade in the near future although I don't see PCS RRUs on the secondary PCS antenna right now...

When and got a few pics .. sorry about the quality I may have to get me a DSLR .. so, signal check pro is reading the sites as 3xca , but Samsung service mode does not confirm that.. all of the b25 sites are now running a second carrier got speeds close to 40 Mbps

What are you talking about? B25 CA w/ B41? That's not happening here.

Signal check is showing 3rd carrier, not 3xCA. The app cannot tell you if CA is active, only which carrier you are connected to. Which device is in use here?

Thanks, so it can go 3xCA. It may not be active on that site yet. The site that showed 3rd carrier must be an 8T8R site.

Also, the reach of band 41 I was quiet impressed with 59482ecd217b6d39f9ccdaefcc3f2590.png

The b41 is on top of the Marriott and i was able to stay on until I got to hooters ..

The only thing I have a concern with ... is that El Paso never had WiMAX .. maybe 1 or 2 sites ..

So, these are brand new 8t8R installs and these are very expensive for one site .. I wonder how many of these sprint will complete. I hope get to a 50-70% completion rate

They are doing Mini-macros as well, which is what was on that palm tree site. Much more cost effective where the massive 8T8R capacity isn't yet needed.

This is the sprint tower I connect to at work. I assume it's still old legacy 3G as I only connect to 3G at work .. sprint acknowledges this area as off network roaming on their system .. you guys got any ideas as to why

Where exactly is this? It does not look like a Sprint site, even a legacy Sprint site. There aren't many 3G only sites left in your area. Even if GMO, they have had LTE added.

This is in otero county NM ... it right at the state line of nm and Texas on a military base ..the closest LTE tower is in chaparral nm 6.7 miles away, but I really get a low DBm signal on 3G.. so I figured that's would be the tower

    • Nothing to do anything about number of customers... How are they not on par with the big two?  TMobile is crushing it for data in all the major markets.  If TMobile can execute their 2017 coverage map goal, they will be on par with AT&T, which is considered to be in the same coverage league as VZW.  So yes, TMobile will be in this club come 2018. https://www.t-mobile.com/coverage/lte-comparison-map
    • This is a reach. AT&T and Verizon still have twice as many customers as T-Mobile and even if they added 2 Million customers per quarter it would take 8 years before they got to VZ and AT&T's current size, assuming VZW or AT&T don't have any growth at all. We can acknowledge T-Mobile's accomplishments without making it seem like they're nearly on par with the big two. In terms of data speed, sure. In terms of price, they're approaching it too. However, you won't be able to find the consistency of the duopoly's network nationwide on T-Mobile right now. That'll take quite a bit more infill sites. That's why given Sprint's "non-announcement" of 8K macro sites for expansion, I'm glad to see it's not a huge expansion because we know that they're going for reliability over square mileage.
    • burnout8488-   Probably about 30 minutes a day.  I mostly text and web browse with it. Galaxyguy-         I didn't add any other apps at that same time...  Of course, Samsung has installed a number of apps around then and in the last week that I have no use for-  I'll watch to see if indeed my battery rebounds or continues to suck.
    • And in terms of this, TMobile already does on many fronts.  They constantly prove to be #1 in so many data tests. Verizon and TMobile are essentially #1/2 in terms of data speeds and they are the most constrained carriers in terms of spectrum.  In terms of Coverage, TMobile continues to show us how they will be on par with VZW/AT&T soon and do continue to deliver with expanded coverage. TMobile is well on its way without Sprint to be equal to VZW/AT&T.  So that is three strong nationwide carriers with Sprint still being a forth option if absolute total native coverage is less a concern.  They are well on their way to provide fast speeds within existing coverage areas.  Honestly, with a little stronger rural coverage and less dead zones TMobile will be the nations #2 carrier ahead of AT&T.
    • I don't recall anyone saying they expect pricing to further reduce in either scenario...Sprint going alone nor a merger with Tmo.
